Nestled along the shores of Lake Michigan in the quaint resort town of New Buffalo, The Dunes Club is a private course so hidden and private, the only sign visible from the road is a small no trespassing sign. Designer Dick Nugent developed the course with developer and owner Mike Keiser, now famous for his masterpieces in Oregon, Bandon Dunes, and Wisconsin, Sand Valley. While the duo has won numerous accolades since opening in the 1990’s, some credit must be given to Mother Nature who deposited golden brown sandy dunes in a densely wooded area. The layout of the course is truly magnificent, the greens lightning quick, and conditions absolutely pristine.
