This is an awesome golf experience for the better golfers.If you are a beginner you will quit golf after playing here. 108 sandtraps,all placed in key locations.You need to play it at least twice to say you are gaining on the golf course.Great layout & very competative feel playing there.Great emplyees/excellent practice facilities/very nice clubhouse & excellent food..Definitely worth the drive..

Visiting friends in the area who said we had to play this course. Well worth it. Beautiful course with a challenging layout. We plan to return next year.

My husband and I played in September and loved the course and all the bunkers! Will challenge the average golfer with the dog-legs and sand traps. It is surrounded by mountains so when you are not focusing on your game, take a look around!

My son and his friend have won a few golf tournaments and they love this course!
Also, we have friends who come from Colorado and go to Maricopa just to play this course..they rave about it...I have not done it myself but we belong to two golf country clubs and I know they wouldn't go if it wasn't fantastic..worth the 15 mile drive...stay at Harrahs ..they own it!

Eight guys on a Scottsdale golf getaway, has its challenges when it comes to pleasing everyone. Well imagine one guy encouraging seven others that a course 45 minutes away is worth the drive. Not easy!! The two vans made there way down to Southern Dunes. (Maricopa) From the get-go, the outside staff and pro shop staff exuded a welcoming calm that has to be experienced! The practice facility and the quaint restaurant were also refreshing. AT LESS THAN HALF THE PRICE of We Ko Pa, I would play this track twice on every future trip. Having said that, make sure you select the right tees. It can be long and there's a ton of traps. Bring your camera for the 14th short Par 4. Spectacular!!
Of the six courses we played, Southern Dunes was the only course that all eight members of this old man's club agreed on for 2014.
