This course has great bones - good layout and thoughtful course. However, it has not been well maintained at all and seems quite sad as a result. Uncut tee boxes. Unpainted markers, Staff without uniforms, and smoking while serving guests. Rusted stands on the range....More

This is the 10th time I have played Desert Dunes. Conditions are consistent through out the season. Check for deals as pricing varies. Speed of play is good and the fairways give the not so accurate golfer room to play.

Beautiful course, links style, unfortunately was VERY windy when we played but enjoyed the challenge. Surprised this course didn't have better amenities - not great quality practice area or carts, the pro shop was minimal. We enjoyed it but would spend our greens fees elsewhere...More
