AK-CHIN SOUTHERN DUNES GOLF CLUB (Maricopa, Arizona): Sprawling across more than 320 acres, 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, unmatched playability and superlative customer service, 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. Strategically placed flashed-up bunkers add challenge to the experience and encourage golfers to hit their drivers on nearly every hole, while calculated approach shots into small, well-designed greens complexes place a premium on precision.
