Roadrunner Dunes Golf Course
This course has transitioned.
I've been playing in a weekly scramble for a few months and I couldn't have asked to play with a more welcoming group. The staff is very friendly and you feel like a local right away. Roadrunner Dunes has definitely transitioned(as other courses) from the winter months when the grass is a little brown to nice green, well maintained, fairways and faster greens. Great atmosphere and a good, affordable course with enough challenge to hone your skills.

Small Town Golf Course
II retired in January 2013 and picked up golf in August 2014. In the past year I have golfed on several courses in Arizona and Southern California. Roadrunner Dunes may not be a country club but it is a quality course with challenging par 3’s, 4’3 and 5’s. There is a low key atmosphere where you have gorgeous panoramic views of the surrounding desert and hills from every one of the nine holes. You will find a friendly staff and a pleasant surprise should you venture out to play this course. I highly recommend it.

Just barely surviving
Unfortunately, I live here. This is the only course available, and I hate it. Mud, dead fairways, and greens, no challenges. Have never seen a groundskeeper here, sprinklers broken, failing. Owner is rude. Female staff member is very pleasant, but that's it. This is typical of a city that is controlled by a few families/good ol boys. Have seen dogs everywhere, in clubhouse, on fairways, neighbors sneak onto course. "Elite" clients (desert hillbillys) can do and act however they like. Whereas outsiders, newcomers, or beginners are talked down to, and shunned, which is odd for a business that is constantly one donation away from closure. Save 50% - Drive down the hill and play an enjoyable round with polite and professional staff.

Check with www.golfnow.com first...for best rate.. better yet ..don't come!
Management problems... watering (sprinklers) operated during the day...Are there not enough hours between 6pm and 7am?
Tee'ing off between sprinklers??? Not a good start!
Then there are the "locals with dog" who appear from the residential area ..awaiting the golfers to pass by so they can play (soccer??) on the fairway!
There is no "Marshall". The "golfers" encountered have no concept of "ready golf". Pay the $$.. go elsewhere.
NO... I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS COURSE!
(The recommendation below is not mine.)
