Teed-off about 3:30 and only played 13 holes before it got dark. Great deal from golfnow, so 13 holes was still a good deal.

Front 9 was slow, but moved along as people dropped out when the sun set.

Course was wide open with some ponds and 'cement streams'. Good greens. Well maintained. Traps were placed in the wrong spots for me.

Have played here several times this year and this course has always provided the most bang for the buck. Course is still in good shape with above average speed on the greens. About to be reseeded next week but knowing them the course will be great once it is completed. Highly recommend course and staff and Golf Now always seems to have some kind of deal available for this course. One of my favorites in the Sun City area and always enjoy playing this course. Sometimes overcrowded due to fivesomes being allowed.

Round took 4:40 hrs. Of course it is a senior golf course, the greens are anything but flat most every put had a break many were severe , fairways were okay, most tee boxes were not level, the rough was moderate & playable, course length is normal for sun city. Playing time will top out around 5 hrs this winter that's when I will not play.

good, fun course. greens and fairways were good. rough was challenging. staff is always friendly at sun city and sun city west courses.

I don't understand why so many people don't tip outside staff who clean the carts.

and why so many cigarette butts at most courses - just rude.

Meadowcreek is one of the early Sun City courses designed for retired folks that enjoy a round of golf without a lot of punishment for imperfect shots. It's usually in quite good condition compared to its siblings. Scratch players will break par but high handicappers can still find them self in fairway and green side bunkers or in the creek that winds down the right side of many fairways. The homes that boarder the course are set back far enough unless you like hitting snap hooks. Greens run at about 8 usually but have enough slope to make you think. Give it a try but remember the green fees are one tenth of the more expensive Scottsdale courses so don't be expecting a similar experience.

Starter started me off as soon as I arrived about 20 minutes before tee time and told me to go ahead alone. By the second hole I caught the first group of 5. On the third hole they let me play through where I caught another fivesome. After anotherr hole they let me skip ahead of them. I checked the next six holes ahead and all were fivesomes! After about two hours and 6 holes I went in.

Course conditions and grass are in poor ratings. Unfriendly staff to younger people. Grumpy old men. Boring layout, absolutely no challenging hazards or play. Obviously won't play here again. Don't waste your money.

Great course, everything is in great shape. The maintenance crew takes pride in their work and it shows. Lots of variety and challenging. Stay out of the creek and you'll have a great round. Best course of all the Sun city courses. Well worth the investment you'll spend here.

Course was fine but the people who work there, not so much…. Rude is the best word to describe them. I don’t know that I’ll be going back anytime soon. They could use some “new blood” around here. Customer service isn’t in their vocabulary here…..

Another nice to play course in Sun City. There are actually 2 courses here, we played Willowcreek and found it to be in great shape. I'm sure Willowbrook is in the same shape! Typical of other Sun City courses, a nice layout and not real difficult to score. Great pace for us - 3:45hrs.
