Detailed description of Falcon Dunes Golf Course

Falcon Dunes Golf Course, is a Military, 18 hole golf course located in Waddell, Arizona.

Located just north of Luke Air Force Base, Falcon Dunes is one of the top military golf courses in the world. Situated at the corner of Northern Avenue and Reems Road, this 18 hole, par 71 - championship layout features mounded contours that frame rolling fairways and undulated greens.

Besides the breathtaking views of the majestic White Tank Mountains, the course is also well known for the unique, native desert landscaping that outlines the course.

Already considered the "flagship" of the military golf courses, Falcon Dunes has been awarded the best golf course in its Major Command in four of its first five years in operation. Take advantage of the state-of-the-art, 8,250 square foot club house which houses the Falcon Dunes Restaurant and full-service bar!

The golf shop is well equipped and offers everything you'll need. The roomy practice facility contains outstanding putting and chipping greens, as well as a lengthy, turf-grass practice range.

Falcon Dunes was built in 1997. Over 700,000 cubic feet of earth was moved to form the contour and character of this once nondescript desert area. The course is links-style with a natural desert floor look and natural desert vegetation between fairways. The greens are large, with the exception of the par 5's, and are moderately undulating. There are a great deal of elevation changes throughout the course, unlike most Arizona courses. Accuracy is a must due to an abundance of natural vegetation that skirts the fairways. The signature hole is #14, a 401-yard, par 4, which rests at the course's highest elevation and boasts a spectacular view of the Estrella Mountains. The green is guarded on the left by a lake and a huge sand bunker. This course is open to all active-duty and retired military personnel and any Federal employee. Guests must be accompanied by a member.
