About AK-Chin Southern Dunes Golf Club

With their "in with a smile, out with a smile" philosophy, guests of AK- Chin can always expect to receive a member for a day type of treatment. With over 100 bunkers and open fairways, it has a very links-style feel to it. There area no homes on the course so the already secluded layout evokes a feeling of serenity, where the rest of the world just seems to melt away. Recent renovations have lessened the forced carries off the tee boxes by up to 50 yards, making the course very player-friendly. However, the back tees still play over 7600 yards for those looking for a challenge. The design allows a first time player to get a pretty straightforward understanding of each hole from the tee boxes, with very few surprises. The 14th hole is sure to be a memorable one, as this drivable Par 4 is a classic risk/reward hole. All in all, a great value.

    Wonderful course. Good fairways and decent greens. Not super fast but quick enough. If you're off target a little you can usually find your ball (it was too cold for the snakes and scorpions to be out). Pretty flat course though. If you're looking for a lot of elevation changes, this isn't it. Well worth the drive though!!

    Great resort type course. We really enjoyed it except that the mosquitoes were terrible late in the afternoon when we did our replay. None of us had mosquito repellent with us.

    Great conditioning, fast greens, would definitely go back.
    It's just a difficult course for my skill level - way too much sand - it's kind of like playing a course with a lot of water. Just substitute sand for the water!! Also very long.

    Worth the drive. In great shape and challenging. 109 Bunkers. If you don't have a decent sand game, don't play it.

    One of the most fun courses I have played. Difficult, but such a good time

    Excellent conditions on the fairways and greens. Friendly staff. Very nice facilities. Lots of fairways and greenside bunkers.

    Do not recommend this course to anyone except the best players. There is far too much sand on the course (we heard 16 acres) and every fairway seems to have bunkers in the landing areas.
