Hidden Dunes among Top 50 tennis resorts

Special to The Log

Hidden Dunes Beach & Tennis Resort was named a Silver Medal Resort by Tennis Resorts Online for the sixth consecutive year. The ranking places Hidden Dunes among the top 50 tennis resorts.

Located in Miramar Beach, Hidden Dunes features six championship clay courts. The Tennis Center consistently receives high marks for overall tennis experience, tennis staff, and instruction. Additionally, the staff’s like-level game matching receives positive reviews with resort players.

“We have an incredible team here at Hidden Dunes and we’re excited to make the list for the sixth year in a row,” said Renee Broxson, director of tennis. “Many players initially discover Hidden Dunes for our well-maintained clay courts, but come back year after year due to our customer service, like-level game matching and our clinics and lessons.”

Broxson is an active member of the USPTA and attends world and sectional conferences for continuing education. She was awarded the Arthur Ashe Leadership and Sportsmanship Award and the Gulf Coast Conference Sportsmanship Award and was inducted into the University of West Florida Tennis Hall of Fame. Broxson is also a doubles national champion and designs clinics and lessons to suit individual and group needs.

"Hidden Dunes is a fantastic tennis resort and vacation destination. The resort is beautiful and the tennis facility outstanding. The tennis pros and entire staff continually give 200 percent each and every day. I have always enjoyed my time there and have met so many good friends," wrote a Hidden Dunes tennis player in a review on Tennis Resorts Online (May 2017).

Tennis Pro George Cobia is also an integral part of the team, designing and implementing the instructional clinics and lessons. Cobia has been a Level 1 United States Tennis Professional for more than 25 years. In the Tennis Center, Quy Tran oversees the pro shop and scheduling like-level matches for players.

The Florida tennis resort is also popular with snowbirds who stay for an extended visit during the winter months. The property features two- and three-bedroom vacation rentals, which include full kitchen and laundry room, at monthly rates during January and February.
