Southern Dunes is an awesome, difficult, well--maintained, target golf course -- no question. The fairways look and feel as good as some other courses' greens. Fine-cut tiff. The greens are hidden in dog-legs and so tangled in traps that you will be compelled to up...More

I have been here once just to check it out. I love sitting outside and just smell the fresh cut grass. Very relaxing to just enjoy meal and look at the nature. Perfect!

Food was great, drinks as well. All with a wonderful view of golf course, which is fun to relax and watch golfers. You can sit outdoors in patio area or inside with a view of golf course.

This is rated as the 5th best golf course that you can plan in Arizona, which I take it means the 5th best course open to the public. It is a very good layout with a huge number of bunkers. The greens were in pretty...More

Recently played Ak-Chin southern dunes golf club and had a very pleasant day. The staff were amazing and extremely friendly and helpful, particularly the starter. This course has over 100 bunkers, of which I probably found half! Lol. Seriously though, it is a really good...More

Like a lot of Troon properties, the service was top notch. The practice area was immaculate and our tee time was right on time. The course itself was challenging if you missed the fairways or misclubbed. I know that's true of many courses, but here...More

For some unknown reason this golf course is both good and bad. The front nine is in terrible shape, the greens are spotty, the fairways dust dry, and the roughs are unattended. But, the back nine is much better and appears to be getting all...More

Thank you for the review, I just wanted to make sure this is for Ak-Chin Southern Dunes and not The Duke. Please clarify when you can. Thanks, Devin - ACSD

Fun course - with LOTS of sand traps. Greens can be very well guarded. Very well maintained course in great shape. Good pace of play. Pretty views on many holes.

Hands down, this was the best course we played in the Phoenix area. Friendly bag drop, registration, starters and Marshall. On course Marshall hardly needed as full 10 minutes between tee-offs, resulting in negligible on course backups. The course is long and tough with plenty...More

Wow. Definitely was Southern Dunes as my son and I liked it so much we came back to play it a second time. (in January.) You provided ZERO commentary why you think this review is incorrect. I firmly stand by original... More
