Ak-Chin Southern Dunes Golf Club

Sprawling across 320 acres, Ak-Chin Southern Dunes Golf Club provides a welcoming, laid-back ambiance.  Here, amid uninhibited 360-degree views of Arizona’s magnificent desert expanse, this world-class, Troon Golf-managed facility offers impeccable course conditioning, unmatched playability and superlative customer service, thus ensuring an unparalleled round of extraordinary golf.

Designed by golf course architect Brian Curley and major championship winner Fred Couples, Ak-Chin Southern Dunes’ creative routing, native grasses, and rugged, unbridled landforms pay tribute to the game’s great links-land courses while offering a pleasant departure from Arizona’s prevailing desert golf architecture. The course’s more than 100 strategically placed flashed-up bunkers — totaling a massive 12 acres of sand — add challenge to the experience and encourage golfers to hit driver on nearly every hole. Meanwhile, calculated approach shots into small, well-designed green complexes place a premium on precision. With no homes or development on or around the golf course, Ak-Chin Southern Dunes allows golfers room to swing with wild abandon while experiencing both the beauty of the tranquil surroundings, and pure golf at its finest.

Ak-Chin Southern Dunes has proudly played host to numerous major tournaments and events since its celebrated opening in 2002, serving as an annual U.S. Open qualifying site and home of early-stage PGA Tour Q-School tournaments. While the tips, which stretch the course to more than 7,500 yards, have challenged some of the most skilled players in golf, Ak-Chin Southern Dunes’ five sets of tees still provide novices with both a unique challenge and an unforgettable day of golf. Simply stated, Ak-Chin Southern Dunes doesn’t just offer desert golf; it presents golfers of all skill levels with the very best of championship golf in the desert. The Arroyo Grille caps off the club’s exceptional amenities by providing a laid-back dining experience with a sweeping view of the Estrella Mountains to the west.
