Southern Dunes started out as a private facility in the southernmost tip of the Phoenix area. This private feel is still in Southern Dunes bones and provides a very cool atmosphere for golfers vacationing in the Phoenix Area. It is hard to put a finger on what makes this course so alluring….Course condition are fantastic, clubhouse is intimate and is decked out in dark wood accents throughout the building and the practice facility makes you feel like you’re at a private club on the east coast. The course layout is very solid, but offers little in the way of views and elevation changes. With that being said, the course hosts many professional tournaments throughout the year and holds up against the very best in the valley. Proximity is the key to Southern Dunes not ranking a bit higher, as this course is 1+ hour drive from central Scottsdale.
