This is a short 9 hole course. On the door step of Spirit Ridge resort. Good condition, greens were very good. Course needs a better visual of the layout either on the score card or at the tee box - playing blind shots on a few holes. Fairways are narrower than you think, and unless you want to step on...

golf this 9 hole course twice and get twice the enjoyment. A short course but challenging - especially in the desert heat.

Great views, dessert growth, and a link course made for laughs and a great time. Take lots of golf balls, as they seem to disappear into the sage. The green are fast, but totally a fun course.

This 9 hole course offers some challenging holes and a good hike if walking. The most pristine and lush grass I have ever seen! And love the views too!

Nice course with interesting holes! Very reasonable, 9 holes for $81 including a power cart. it's a bit hilly so I would suggest a cart if you don't like walking hills.

I played this executive 9-hole course solo, twice in two days. Sonora Dunes is located behind Spirit Ridge Vineyard Resort on the east side of Osoyoos Lake. It's on the side of a mountain in the pocket desert, the northern tip of the Sonoran Desert in Arizona. The fragile ecology of the desert means that you are not allowed to... More

Excellent 9-hole golf course with 1 par 5 in a dessrt setting and staff were very pleasant. Recommend using a power cart and a discount if staying at Spirit Ridge.

We have played this course twice. (two years apart). We came back because we loved the first round we played, in spite of seeing a rattle snake sunning himself in the upper 7th tee box. This time we were told that there had been a cougar sighting. We saw scat and tracks but NO wildlife this time. A truly scenic... More

This 9 hole course provides fantastic views of the desert, mountain, vineyard and lake. It is a beautiful golf course. Can be challenging but the 6th hole requires some uphill walking if you are walking the course.

Very reasonably priced for the quality of golf. Is only a 9 hole course but every hole presents excellent challenges for golfers of all levels.
