Hadn't played here before nice layout course was in very good condition. Issue is way to many people who live near by just jump in front of you slow pace of play down and have no regard for people who actually paid. I will not come back due to poor experience go somewhere else where 4 twosomes won't jump in front of you.

We arrived 40 minutes prior to our tee time of 1:22 and were greeted in the pro shop by at least 15 groups ahead of us waiting to pay. This left us no time to go to the range to warm up. The next very disappointing thing happened on the #1 tee. Our group was called and the pro shop announced 5 names for our time. We went to the #1 hole on time, and to our surprise there were 3 golf carts in the group ahead of us with 5 players in that group. We asked what time they had and were told that they had the 1:15 time. The other golfers in our group were no where to be found. We also discovered from the 5-some ahead of us that they were following another 5-some. All of this left my husband and myself in a two-some. What course allows that? As a result, we were left to wait on every shot in our round. Where was the course marshall or starter to correct this? It is unlikely that we will return.

Nice open and wide fairways. Fairway grass was nice to hit off of (sorry about the preposition at the end). Pace of play was good despite the fact there were fivesomes playing. I will play this again. The only problem for me was that it was a longer drive from my home than usual. All in all, a very nice day of golf and it was only 90 degrees!

Nice course for the average player. Fairly flat, wide fairways and nice greens. The course was in good condition. The roughs are pretty dry and the creeks can be a hassle but manageable. The biggest problem is the 5 somes that the management allows which slows down.play. We still enjoyed are round.

Unfortunately it didn't work out. When I got to the course I was told that there was a women's tournament going on and the wait would be very long. I was able to get a tee time at another course so left. So I paid the golf now fee for nothing.

Was able to play the course in about 3.5 hours in a foursome with a 1PM tee time. It was cool and windy following an overnight rain. The course was cart path only which led to quite a bit of walking (estimated from my gps as 3.5 miles beyond cart movement. Course was in good shape and I enjoyed the round

A typical Sun City course,plenty wide,easy to play low cut rough,nice fairways,good greens which are probably a little too firm. The creek is a small concrete culvert which is along the right side of almost every hole.This culvert is dry most of the time so feel free to play out of it if you wish.

The back 9 seems more appealing to me. The final few holes are quite pretty.

Enjoyed playing Willowbrook very much. Was welcomed to the course by Bob when we got there. Course was in very good shape. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were all in excellent shape. Only negative was the course allowing fivesomes. We ended playing as a twosome but we had two fivesomes in front of us. Their pace was pretty good but we ended up waiting on every hole for our next shot. Probably added at least a hour to our time over 18 holes.
