Slope 125
Rating 70.5
The Falcon Dunes Golf Course is a military course situated just north of Luke Air Force Base and it is open to all military and government employees, active or retired. It is a links-style course that is highlighted by unique, native desert landscaping. The championship course provides a challenging game with several elevation changes throughout the course and abundance of natural vegetation surrounding the fairways. The large, subtly undulating greens and rolling fairways are outlined with mounded contours. Water hazards and sand bunkers also come into play on the course. Some of the holes at Falcon Dunes Golf Course also offer beautiful views of the White Tank Mountains in the distance.

Golf and semi air show

Did not play well but love the course. didn't realize how much undulation to greens. Shot my worst round ever (played at least 15 times) and can't wait to play again. Hard to believe it used to be a cotton field when I was a kid!

Gung ho

By far one of the best courses I've played in the West Valley area. I'm not military so never played it. Could not believe how well course is designed on such a small or regular looking piece of land. Hope to get on next summer since that is the only time the course is open to civilians who are not with anybody either still active or retired military. Would recommend this course to anyone.

Wow!!

We were out and it was cloudy and cool! A bit windy, but very nice for September in Phoenix! The course was very well watered! We pretty much had the course to ourselves. We will definitely be going back!! (You have to be able to golf with F-15's and F-35's flying overhead!! We loved it!)

This course is absolutely lush.

Golfing at this time of year, with many courses preparing for overseeding, you get quite the variety of conditions. However Falcon Dunes is in pristine condition. It has an interesting layout and is not so difficult that you cannot enjoy your round. I would recommend it to all levels of play as there are 4 tee boxes to choose from.

Stay in fairway

The course was in great shape when we played. The monsoon season has been goof for the grass. The rough was thick, but heck, the object is to stay in the fairway. The greens were good, but not consistent. Some slow, the next one fast. The great amenity was to watch the jets going thru their maneuvers.

I'll be bringing my out of town guests here to play the rest of the summer, until the course is reserved for service members only again.

Greens Still Recovering

Staff was exceptional from club house to cart girl. Tee boxes and fairways were in great shape. The greens are still recovering from being punched the beginning of the month. Pace of play was slow due to intramural play starting late. 4.5 hours is a long time in the summer. :-)

Ask about green plugging

Saw that Falcon Dunes was open to the public and jumped on it. Great course, but we found out they had just plugged the greens less than a week before. Did not see anything about that during reservation process. Told us at golf course, but a little late at that time. Tees and fairways in good shape, but greens not good. Play in a few weeks and should be fine.
