Extremely ast greens detract from fine layout

I've played this course a half dozen times, and absolutely love the variety and layout of holes (if one chooses the correct tees for their abilities, then most all greens are accessible to reach in regulation).

That said, the greens are usually quite fast and (when I recently played last week) sometimes "too quick" (I was even unable on multiple occasions to even "lag" a putt close from just 25-30 feet). These overly fast conditions on the greens can be rectified by proper treatment, but if not applied on such undulating surfaces actually make the course unpleasant to play in the sense that "reaching the green" is not rewarded with conditions a putter can adequately navigate. If the greens are to remain this fast, then the greens need to be somewhat "flattened" to make up for the speed of things.

Favorite course

This has been my favorite course in metro Phoenix since the first time I played it in the middle of the summer when I was expecting a course in “summer” condition and instead found a lush well maintained gem. Lots of bunkers and the course definitely sets up for someone who works the ball left to right. Very firm, fast greens.

One of the best

Conditions were mint tee to green. I’ve always enjoyed playing here. Probably the most consistent conditions amongst the top courses. I’d say Southern Dunes deserves more accolades

Great course!

Definitely a challenge. Played from the gold tees. Pins were insane with the copper cup being played that day.

Fav in AZ

I’m not used to target golf or desert golf so this is my favorite in AZ thus far - Greens need to be faster boys come on and stop being so friendly to the hacks

Gorgeous course!

Today is the first time I played this course and I am very happy I did. It is a gorgeous course and a beautiful layout and it is in superb condition. The greens are fast but very true. If you don’t like sand traps don’t play here because this place is filled with sand traps. If you can only Play one course in Arizona, then play this one because you will cherish the time you spend on it. It is not an easy course by any means but You will have fun.

Covid

Great course. I played the course twice in the last week. Last Friday the policy regarding covid allowed singles to ride alone in a cart. When I showed up yesterday, I was informed that I had to share a cart with someone I didn’t know. Surprise! They said it’s a new policy implemented the previous day. I made it he teetime through TeeOff before this new policy was implemented. I said since this was a new policy not disclosed by TeeOff nor by the Southern Dunes website ( I checked), to allow me to ride alone. They said no and they can’t change the policy!! I did have the option of paying $25 more and I could take a cart out alone.

See my comment from 11/19/20 on the same cart issue. Kind of a joke for such a good (Troon) course. Again, while a good course, the on-course management and staff are kind of cartoonish. However, corporate Troon management called and addressed my issue the same day it occurred which was impressive and appreciated.
