Dunes Course overview
A Pete Dye design, this course offers traditional links-style golf, well known for its manicured fairways and thick punishing rough. The narrow fairways will challenge you off the tee while large bunkers guard the greens. Like most of the La Quinta courses, this course has undulating fairways and greens due to the rugged nature of the terrain.
Water comes into play on just about half of the course including a large pond running alongside holes 1 and 18 and two par-3s that require a full carry from tee to green. Although not a long course at just 6578 yards from the back tees, the Dunes is still a good test for all.
The 17th is the signature hole on the Dunes Course. A long par-4 that works its way to the left around a huge water hazard. Players need to decide how much they wish to cut off with their tee-shot, ideally finishing on the right-hand side of the fairway for the approach to a two-tiered undulating green. A great penultimate hole.
