The Golf Course: 

Ak-Chin Southern Dunes Golf Club provides a welcoming, laid-back ambiance; a place where the world melts away and the game of golf becomes the focus. Here - amid uninhibited, 360-degree views of Arizona’s magnificent desert expanses - this world-class, Troon Golf-managed club offers impeccable course conditioning, and fun golf ... thus ensuring an unparalleled round of sensational Southwestern golf.

Sculpted by the master architects of Schmidt-Curley Design, Inc., with the help of golf legend Fred Couples, Ak-Chin Southern Dunes’ creative routing, native grasses and rugged, unbridled landforms pay tribute to the game’s great links-land courses.

  • Short game teaching facility - Allows for golf instruction with conditions that are similar to what you will find on the golf course: putting green, chipping & pitching green, and sand bunkers
  • Multiple Hitting targets - We take advantage of every single swing, as each swing will have a designated target and goal
  • Daily On Course Instruction - 6 holes of On-course instruction each day on the Southern Dunes golf course
