The Dunedin Golf Club is a semiprivate Golf Club, with 200 + golfing members, and a very busy tee sheet of guest play. 

Designed by world renowned golf course architect Donald Ross, the club opened January 1, 1927. From 1945 through 1962, Dunedin Golf Club was the home of the PGA of America. During that time, the Club hosted 18 Senior Tour Championships, this was the beginning of the Senior PGA Tour. B ack then, the PGA and PGA Tour of today were the same corporation.

In 2006 and 2007 our facility went through a major restoration with rebuilding of the greens, tees and bunkers. It's been restored to nearly the same, as when legendary golf architect Donald Ross first drew up Dunedin Golf Club on the drafting table. Today, Dunedin Golf Club is one of the top clubs in the Tampa Bay area. The Club has been named “Country Club of the Year" by Tampa Bay Magazine, has been voted the #1 Golf Course in Pinellas County by the St. Petersburg/Clearwater Visitors Bureau, and for the last 4 years in a row, we were the winner of the Tampa Newspaper Reader's Choice Award for "Best Golf Course" in Pinellas County.
