So we had perfect weather on a Saturday and we have played here before....no memorable holes but always a challenge on all of them. We were set for a 12:45 tee time and got launched 15 minutes late. The front nine was a bit slow but pace picked up markedly on the back so we got finished before sunset. The course is in really good shape and the greens run true and fast.

It has a typical Sun City layout but enough wrinkles to keep you on your toes. All-in-all we will be back!

I like the course and in good shape but very slow play, practice putting green was packed, couldn't even practice... typical Sun City course catering to the snow birds and sending out as many as they can, I was warned that the course was notorious for very slow play with no marshall and it was, 12:52 tee time and barely made 18, almost 3 hours for front nine... that's my only complaint, I play the northwest valley at least twice a week and this the slowest I've experienced yet this year.

Play was very slow because they had a lot of 5some on the course . The 5some in front of us was so slow that it took 4 hours to play 13 holes. When our 3 some finally went around the 5some,the 5some started yelling and swearing at us. We tee off in front of the 5some,then they picked up on the green and started driving in to us.Arguments and fights all over on the course because of so many 5somes and extremely slow play.

Started our round on time at 1:20 but this course has a women's league that because of them took 2 hrs. & 45 mins for the front 9 !! NO ranger ever came by so we could question him, they (women) didn't play the back 9 so with them gone our 4 some played the back in 1 hr 50 mins. when finished I complained to the clubhouse staff but was told they just do what they want to with no concerns with anyone else , I don't place blame on the women's league but on the staff for not enforcing pace of play, will not be returning here.

Pro shop staff...one grump and one nice guy. The course was in great shape and plays well for a shortish course. Fun. Until you run into a 6 some. Yes, a Six-some. The logic was a twosome ran into a five some and one guy bailed. They all complained about the 3 ladies ahead of them who were hitting 30-40 shots...after shots....after shots. We skipped (8 and 9 both groups )to get out ahead on the back nine. Good plan. Be prepared for slow play. We booked early twilight but still got zonked. Apparently, we learned, 5 -somes are common.

We teed off at 12:40....5 mins ahead of schedule and played a blistering pace on the front nine (1:45) before packing up to others on the back. Still just over 4 hrs so not bad. The course was in good shape from tee box to greens.

While fairly straightforward - there is some nice variety from hole-to-hole. The greens are large, running fast but very true. They have a nice practise facility and the carts are in good shape.

We'll be back.

I like this course, especially if you haven't played in a while and want a nice course that doesn't tax your abilities. The course is wide and forgiving. Balls are easy to find, no major ruff. Greens are nice and most are big, not so easy, with some minor angulation. There is a small stream that runs through most of the course, about 4 feet wide, leading down to the various ponds throughout the course. (I think 3 large ponds). A small hook/slice can get you into the stream. The stream is constantly running and has a cement bottom so your ball will carry down the stream pretty fast. I hit the stream twice and by the time I got to where my ball went in, it was about 100 yards downstream and still moving. So if you think, at all, that you might be in the stream quickly go down stream to look for your ball before you spend time where your ball landed, hoping you didn't go in. All streams empty out into the ponds so your ball is gone if it goes that far. Not sure what the rules are in that case. I played my ball where I thought it went into the stream and took a stroke. As I said this is a well maintained course, rather simple, but nice. I recommend this course. It is a nice walking course.

Course was in good shape , except everyone in our foursome lost a ton of strokes due to very slow greens. Unless greens are cut properly, will not play this course again.
