This is my first experience at this course. I heard it was a nice course and can confirm that assessment. Fairways and greens are in excellent condition. Par 4 fairways on the front are generous, but things tighten up on the back. Undulating speedy greens are a challenge. Water comes into play on quite a few holes. Many of the par 3s are short and fun. I recommend giving the course a try.

The overall course was ok. Fairways were in great shape but the greens were. Way below average. The ball continued to bounce along the greens making the whole round very irritating. We played 5 courses this week and it is not one we will put on our try again list

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.
