Awesome experience

My 6th time playing here in the past 10 years and always fantastic. The staff were all very friendly. The course layout is masterful. The conditions were great. The cost is a bit high but very enjoyable. Worth the drive.

Great course

Previous reviews have noted the number of bugs when playing. I reduced the number by a few, but my legs are showing I didn't get them all. Bring bug spray. They have also noted that the bunkers (all 100+) are inconsistent in hardness of the sand, and are difficult. The locals I played with referred to at least one as being concrete.
Played in the afternoon after a lower end tour event, and course was being prepared for Korn Ferry Q school later in the week. Result was very firm greens, at a reasonable speed. Course was in great shape, with greens only a little brown in spots. Also had some pins in nasty spots.
The course design demands that you hit your approach shots a defined distance, as many of the greens are small, and the targets are shallow, with many greenside bunkers, or chipping areas.
I'll play again if in the area. It is about 1/2 hour from the airport, or an hour from north scottsdale on the south side of Phoenix metro.

Southern dunes

Great , challenging course. Greens in very good shape and rolled very well. Group got off course once even though a couple of us had played there before. Signage was hard to read.

Enjoyable round

Overall the course was in good condition. The greens were recently punched so they were a little slow and bumpy.

Make the drive!

Me and my normal group of guys decided to head down to Maricopa to play this course. We have heard many things about it so we gathered that it would be a good experience for us. Boy were we right on the good experience! From the moment we hit the curb at the bag drop the staff was super friendly and we realized when we walked into the pro shop that This was a different kind of beast. The pro shop was well stocked full of items and everybody was super friendly. Once we got out on the course the starter gave us a full rundown on the course and that they watch piece of play. They said that all the teetimes are eight minutes apart so everybody has to golf at a good pace. This works very well for me and my friends because we are pretty quick players.

The course has a very friendly layout but not easy. There are plenty of sand traps to find yet they’re not in awkward positions. Everything is playable as long as you hit it in the right spots. The course was in fantastic condition, and the roof was in good shape as well. Around was four hours on the nose and we headed to their Grill for lunch. Here’s a professional tip, get the short rib grilled cheese sandwich oh my goodness. We had a few beers and called it a day and a success. I title this review make the drive because if you are 30 or 40 miles away, it’s worth it.

Southern Dunes at Ak Chin

Course was in great shape. Back nine had to wait on every hole for up to 10 minutes for the group in front of us. Extremely slow players, but the Marshall apologized but said he was unable to tell them to pick it up because they were ahead of pace. I can't wait to golf the southern dunes again

A gem in Maricopa

Many locals will hate this review but this course is a winner. They value pace of play so they space tee times 8 minutes apart. This can be good and bad. If you are looking for the country club leaisurely smoke a cigar on the tee box pace, don’t come here. If you like a 4 hour round where Marshall’s actually visit you and let you know what is happening, come on down. The Marshall offered us a wet towel for our neck because it was warm! Great track. Lots of obstacles and challenges, but nothing ridiculous, where you leave scratching your head as to why they placed something. 2 carts running around and we saw them 4 times on our round. We ate at the grill. Trade secret, get the short rib grilled cheese, not healthy but yummy. Oh yeah the pro shop had great selection of gear.

Overall a great round and great place to golf. A+++

Nice day on a tough track.

Course as usual was in great shape. Somewhat penalizing if you miss the fairway, but all in all a good day. Only draw back was some slow play of the groups in front of us. We'll be back!

Lots and lots of bunkers

Course has a great variety of holes that make you play a lot of shots. You MUST navigate the green side bunkers to shoot a good score, so plan your approach shots accordingly.

Greens were a bit slower than normal due to recent over seeding, but they rolled smoothly. Overall a great day.

Excellent Course - worth the drive

This is an excellent and well run course. Probably the best in the “southern” phoenix area. It’s about a 35 minute drive from chandler, and well worth it. Due to remote location its cheaper than the courses closer to town, like Wildhorse Pass and at least as good.

There are a lot of bunkers, so approach shots must be accurate (mine were not - i must have hit 10 green side bunkers).

Greens had been punch sometime before i played, and had not completely recovered. They were fast enough, but not as fast as the people who play there a lot thought they usually were.

Plus they have iced bottled water every three holes. Drink it. I didnt drink enough and ran out of gas on 18.

Fantastic Shape!!!

Very great day! Our group was a little slow but the course Marshall was very good about encouraging our playing partners to speed it up. Played in 4 hours. Course is playing really well for this time of year. Greens were punched 7 days ago but will likely be perfect in 3 days.
