Pine Dunes is southwest of Tyler near Lake Palestine, and is an Augusta/Pine Valley golf course experience. It was originally a small 9 hole course when the new owner Jodi Lutz purchased it in 1994, and with the help of PGA Tour Pro David Frost realized there was more potential here and hired Jay and Carter Morrish to redesign and add an additional 9 holes.
The course is routed through stands of mature pines with open (Augusta style) or island (Pine Valley) fairways on the rolling hills of east Texas. The layout has considerable sand in play, the greens are on the large size with moderate undulation, and overall it provides a variety of holes which maintain your interest. There's four sets of tees from 5,150 yards to 7,117 yards at the tips with 74.4/131, course/slope ratings.
