Southern Dunes is an epic golf course that is managed by Troon and located in Maricopa County. According to their website, “The course currently boasts several coveted accolades that include Golfweek’s list of the “Top 100 Resort Courses,” “Best Courses You Can Play,” and “Top Casino Courses,” as well as Golf Magazine’s list of “Top 100 Courses You Can Play.”
Southern Dunes deserves all these accolades and more as it’s a world-class facility. PGA Tour legend Fred Couples even helped design the par 72 golf course in the early 2000s with the Schmid-Curley Design group.
From the tips, Ak-Chin Southern Dunes is 7,546 yards with a course rating and slope of 76.5/142. It’s a championship golf course that has hosted elite qualifiers like the US Open (which I’ve competed in), high-level amateur events, and Korn Ferry Q-School. It’s a great mix of desert and dunes golf that is loved by every golfer I’ve ever met.
