Best course in Phx

By far one of the best courses in Phoenix. Equal to Quintero or Troon North. A little far south but totally worth the drive. Fred couples did an amazing job designing this course. Will definitely be back soon. If you can find tee time under $150 it’s a steal!

Great challenge

I’ve played the course several times. Always in great shape. Staff is great. New carts. Bottled water on several holes if needed. Great layout. Pace of play was just over 4 hours. Considering having to play out of several bunkers we made good time. Lots of bunkers make it a good challenge and they actually have sand in them unlike a lot of other courses. Would definitely recommend the course.

Very consistent

I've played Southern Dunes 5 times during different visits to Arizona. All aspects of the course and facilities are consistently excellent. I've always had a great experience. The course is challenging but not crazy difficult. There is lots of sand to avoid. The bunkers are in excellent condition with very good sand. The greens are not too fast. The tees are consistently in great shape.

Great Golf course!

This is a fun great golf course to play. Every aspect of it. The only knock is the inconsistency of sand in bunkers. But they have spend over a million dollars for new sand after last October storms, but that didn’t cover all of them. There are a ton of them so understandable. Hopefully they will do the rest of them.

A must golf course to play!

Great Troon Course

Great track and highly recommend.. Lots of character and lots of trade winds . Shot makers course and worth the trip out of the city.
Greens were trues and fast and boxes were awesome. Fairways were good and bunkers a little off from all the rain..
worthwhile

Lovely afternoon round

I decided to play this course as a single spontaneously on a monday afternoon. The ride from Phoenix takes a little time, but it´s well worth it.
I was paired with a Canadian who plays this course regularly, and it turned out to be a great afternoon, playing golf and having a lot of fun.
The course is quite challenging, there are bunkers everywhere.
You can, however, choose from a lot of tee boxes, which makes it a lot more playable for anyone.
The only small criticism comes from the bunkers being very different, some being very fluffy, some being almost like concrete. That makes it really hard to get into a rhythm.
Apart from that, the course is in perfect condition.
The fairways are nice and green, fair to play. The greens are fast and in very good shape.
Pace of play was relaxed and still good.
I highly recommend this course.

Walked

Ak-Chin Breeze

Headlines; Great staff; great course; great time - 5 stars.

Arrived at 08.20 for an 08.50 tee got away at 08.45. We let two two-ball groups play through on the front nine and finished in 4 hours 30 walking. Saw no-one else for the whole round.

A truly great course, good tees, fairways, good size greens running at 10 with very tricky breaks, bunkers a little variable plenty of sand but some very dry and light and some damp and heavy. There are no tricks on this course but you have to pick your way through the bunkers and know when to take them on and when to just lay up. Great variety of hole length, shape and challenge. The par threes are a real challenge, with great variety of length and some big forced carries which make holding the green difficult. We had a 20mph westerly wind for the whole back nine, meaning that we had to deal with winds that were helping, hurting and across us - what a great layout.

The course staff are all unfailingly friendly, helpful and welcoming.

Is a really nice course to walk, but it would be an added bonus if the course management would cut some walking tracks from green to tee - nothing fancy just a cleared path. Is a shame to have to walk the cart path quite so often.

My only gripe is the provision of water on the course. Every second hole there's an ice cooler with free plastic bottles of water. This means that every year Troon throw away tens of thousands of one time use plastic bottles - not cool. Give us re-usable bottles and water coolers to refill from.

Yes I'd recommend this course and I'll definitely be back.

Always a great place

Course in great shape with the Saguaro Am a few days ago. Sand was sand, not dirt like many AZ courses. Fast pace. Lots of thinking shots. And, killer food in the clubhouse.
