Hello I'm Hawk, I'm a 12 Handicap. The Sun City South Golf Course from the parking lot to the Pro Shop was extremely clean, neat, and tidy. Although the Club House seemed a bit dated but clean none the less. I was greeted nicely by the Pro Shop attendant. He indicated to me that I could either play with a group that was scheduled to go out in a 15 minutes or wait and play as a single. I thought that selection or options I was given was exactly what I wanted to hear. I like options! Today I did not want to play with anyone. I just wanted to enjoy the North Phoenix sun while playing/hitting multiple golf balls from different angles. The mature trees around the golf course provides a lot of needed shade in this desert climate. Most Tee Boxes were shaded by the mature Trees. Summers can be challenging heat wise here in Phoenix. However, the mature tree's shade makes the round a little more bearable. Furthermore, the golf course fairways were manicured/cut nicely. NOTE: There were multiple fairways that had some burned out looking spots "sporadically" throughout the front nine and back nine. The ruff areas in the extreme outer borders of the golf course needed a little cutting back or pruning. The greens were in Pretty Good Shape. The greens could stand a little speeding up however, the greens were noticeable rolling true to the line you putt the golf ball on. Overall from the service rendered, great course conditions, cost, and play-ability of this golf course I will be back to play this course again.

I enjoy the course very much. It is close to my home and the staff is excellent. As a Golf Now VIP I can get some really good rates for play and now that the snow birds are going home, it is easier to get a T-time. I am looking forward to what the course offers this summer. I highly recommend this golf course

After beginning the with a reasonable pace of play the round slowed down considerably as our twosome followed a fivesome ahead of us who wondered down and back of the fairway with no regard for the golfers following them. It was a frustrating 4.5+ hour round in the middle of the week.

To many fivesoms 2 in front of our foursome one behind 5 hrs to play 18. Sun City needs to do something about to many fivesoms on their courses. Changes need to be done or they will be losing customers.

A four star rating is to generous. The course itself is challenging with many traps in driving areas off the tee. Precise driving or good course management is necessary. The disappointing part are the greens. Extremely slow. Like they had not been mowed for some time. Our whole group was frustrated by the greens. Would not recommend this course as to many others are in the with better conditions.

The course was at the level of difficulty I expected and was in fair condition with several brown areas as one finds in the AZ winter. Fairways were good.
