With Greenfield Lakes looking more like an episode of GoT after the dragons got ahold of it, Sunland Village is a very nice, close by alternative for those looking to play a shorter course in the east Valley. Lots of water scattered throughout the course, trees line many fairways making it imperative to keep it in the fairway on the "longer" holes.

Entire course is green, even in the dead of summer. Tee boxes in good shape, greens were true and well conditioned, bunkers needed a bit more sand to make them more playable. Staff was courteous and friendly even to someone who doesn't live in the Sunland Village complex, which is sometimes an issue at other courses.

Very nice course to practice your mid and short irons. Also has an all grass driving range and practice putting green. PoP was about 2.75 hours.

Usually play another place nearby, but decided to try this one out because of the ratings. Course conditions were amazing for the price. I will definitely play again. Only down side was how close the houses were with no fence, but just makes you try and hit a straight shot every time.

Drove about 40 miles and chose this course because it had a 4.5 rating. Hard to understand why, as it does not have any outstanding features! We have played several courses of similar length and design with lower ratings which we would choose again over this one. We had to stop at the bathroom after nine, so, following etiquette and being courteous, we let a female foursome through. Then, some clown (another crass description would be appropriate) playing behind them drove up to the 10th tee and loudly and arrogantly accused us of cutting in! We realize the course has little control over such idiots and while it did not affect our overall rating, it did leave a sour taste.

Course was in excellent condition. The odor from recent fertilizing was unpleasant. The couple that we were paired with didn't know Golf etiquette or the rules so that was a negative. Overall were pleased with the cost, condition of the course and the pace of play.

Love the Shotgun start. The rate of play was really good. The rough was extremely challenging to find your golf ball, so needed to stay in the middle of the fareway. Love to play it again.

The course is in very lush and green shape . The greens are slower because of overseeding but some are undulating and challenging. It is a good executive course should you wish to work on your short game, but leave the driver in the bag on most holes( even some of the par 4 holes) . The fairways are a bit narrow in places and there are a few water hazards so one needs to refer to hole diagrams to determine the exact locations since some are not visible from the tee box. The club house and adjoining bar/ restaurant offer NFL game day specials. Food was good and service was prompt and courteous .

The price was perfect for this executive course. Fast pace of play. Some good variety of holes. Look forward to bringing my young children here to learn the game. Able to practice many different types of shots and still play quickly. Will return for certain! Green were in good shape and held approach shots nicely.
