The one nice thing about the Phoenix area is that there are so many great golf courses, however, they can all get really busy. So if you are looking for another amazing course to take your guests, make the drive out to this place. As you drive in you can tell this is a nicer course and when you pull... More

We arrived around 5:30 (p.m.) with sun shining in a perfect cloudless blue sky! We were shown to our table in front of the fireplace with ability to look out onto golf course! What a view! We both ordered fish, my guest seared samolon, I have the Atlantic cod nicely presented with outstanding side orders, especially the sauces!

Played Southern Dunes three times over the past weekend while visiting the area. Love the layout. No gimmicky holes. Lots of traps and after you play it a couple times you can generally avoid them. The greens are moderately fast and true. You might think that with the traps it would be slow but ion the afternoon it was 4... More

Last night we experienced the fish and chips to the Southern Dunes G & CC's bar and grill. Absolutely amazing! It was all you can eat and the fish was done to perfection. Best fish and chips I've had in years! As well, the decor was very nicely appointed. My only issue was the lag time from ordering our drink... More

I recently went on a buddies golf trip to Phoenix and Southern Dunes was hands down the best course we played, The whole experience from the time we arrived to the time we left was first-rate. There is a nice practice area with good range balls. The golf carts had GPS which was invaluable because there are SO many traps... More

I really liked this course but it is hard! Greens are fast and there is a LOT of sand. The course has character. All the holes are different.

The soups of the day are very good. The cob salad main meal was huge but very good.the fish sandwich was good although it was deep fried! Fries were excellent but a little salty if you are watching salt intake.
