Have played this Sun City course many times and have never seen it in bad condition. The greens right now are a little slow but in good to great condition. Got a great deal on Golf Now and would highly recommend playing it when one is in the Sun City area. You will not be disappointed but be aware they are scheduled to aerate 8/14 and 8/15

Tried to get a round in before the real heat arrived. Started at 9:45 am which was nice as the tee time was set for 10:15 when booked. Played a nice 4 some, with a variety of players. One expert who could hit from the tips, one very good player-played from the "men's" tee and one senior (me) plus a guys who was playing his second room ever. Believe it or not, we kept up with all groups ahead and behind. Course was fun and when all players are there just to enjoy golf it was a fast round. Can't complain about heat, it is summer in Arizona and one expects hot. Thanks to rapid play, we finished before before the full heat arrived. Fun day, nice experience, will do again. Pray for less humidity, though.

Positives: very friendly pro shop staff. Negatives: bottled beer priced like north Scottsdale ($5 a bottle), only one lunch item available, fairways have several dead spots, greens were like putting on shag carpet, and non pro shop staff act like they do not like working there. There are much nicer courses with much better food/beverage services to select from in the valley. How there restaurant stays in business is beyond me. The food service includes a built in tip for all food and beverage orders...result, less than enthusiastic food servers.

Since moving to Arizona in May I've had the chance to play 5 different courses and this has been the best conditioned one. The fairways,greens, and tee boxes were in great shape for this time of year. I am a big fan of traditional layouts and really enjoyed this one. Playing from the back tees all of the par 5's were reachable in 2 and the par 4's are a good mix of short and long. I will be back to play again.

The course is well maintained from tee to green. Greens are rolling well and holding well. Old school golf course that mixes it up so you hit just about every club in the bag. For the cash it's definitely worth to play at least once this summer if you get a chance. One of the better kept courses I've played this summer. You also get range balls before your round which is a plus. Greens will be punched mid August so try to get out there before that.

Don't get out to the west side much, but scheduled an 11am tee time here as I had business in the area. Pleasantly surprised to find out range balls are included in the price, and the range was in great shape.

Course was in solid shape. Most tee boxes in good condition, fairways mostly covered in grass with some bare areas in landing zones. Greens were a little bumpy, appeared to have been aerated a few weeks ago and still showing signs on certain holes. Both greenside bunkers I was in were in tremendous condition--plenty of soft sand from which to hit.

Course is fairly standard, which some generous landing areas on many holes. I played from the Silver (middle) tees, which seemed about right for a mid-handicapper who hits the ball in the 220-230 range. No water holes on the front nine; water only really comes into play on the back nine on a few holes where you really have to mishit to find it.

Biggest issue was pace of play. Seriously, how is possible that on a 100* day in June that it still takes over 4.5 hours to complete a round? Really need some rangers out here to move things along.

Was able to get the last slot of a foursome for one golfer for a 11:07 tee time. Worked it out with starter so that I got paired with only one person and we golfed as a twosome. He had golfed there before which was a plus. Greens had been aerated recently but the holes were small. The greens were very fast. Very few golfers that day so pace of play was excellent. The course is similar to other Sun City courses and I would play here again.

Staff very friendly. Course is very open and you can grip it and rip it since there are minimal dangers out there. Greens were slow and the course conditions were fair at best. Several bunkers had grass/weeds growing in them and had not been edged. There are a few ponds and a creek on the back 9 that had green algae and garbage in them. The 2 guys I played with were regulars and commented that the course had new owners and was not being maintained at the same level as before.

My first time playing and was pleased with the staff, course and conditions.

The greens had been punched and sanded but were almost recovered and they putted fine.

Fairways were great and the edges of the course were not neglected.

Will play here again.

I booked to play here based on reviews I read at golf now. I was very disappointed. Course is not in good condition. The fee I paid is not worth it. It is a muni course worth $20, not the $45 I paid. Fairways are close together on some holes and my partner's ball went into the other fairway. A group of older men, presumably members, picked up the ball. Just like that...even though my friend was already heading towards the ball. The old man did not even look around to see whose ball it was. Don't play pro v1 balls here. They get stolen!
