The Dunes Golf Club in Brooksville is celebrating its one-year anniversary since reopening. The renovated Championship Golf Course, designed by Arthur Hills, will host events each week throughout the month.
This week, there will be complimentary 10-Minute Tuneup Golf Lessons 9 a.m. to noon and daily closest-to-the-pin contests. On Saturday and Sunday, the course will have U.S. Open-like standards for public players. On Sunday, there will also be a shootout for all the closest-to-the-pin winners of the month. The shootout winner will receive a one-year Dunes golf membership.
June will also be Family Golf Month at the course, so all junior golfers under 18 play free with a paying adult. Each Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon, PGTAA teaching professional Steve LaFalce will offer junior golfers a complimentary video swing analysis and clinics. In addition, all active members of the military can play for free.
