This is the 6th different course I've played in the Sun City/Sun City West area in the last 5 weeks, and one thing is painfully obvious: when the hot weather arrives and the snowbirds leave, many courses stop taking care of their grounds. In this case, the tee boxes were spotty with grass; the fairways had many dry and hardpan areas; the traps appeared filled with river sand that was so hard you could putt out of them; and the greens very fast due to the fact they had little grass and were mostly compacted sand. This is another case of other courses in the area being a much better value.

We have played this course a few times. When you arrive there is a cart with your name on it waiting by the parking lot. Nice touch. The gentleman in the pro shop shop does not give you the warm fuzzies but he's efficient if not friendly. Nice driving

range and very affordable. The course is basic with a few interesting holes. The front nine was in decent shape for this time

of year. The back nine was very dry with a lot of brown. Actually had to hit several shots from hardpan on the fairways. Since

this is the transitional season it's kind of what we expected. Greens were fine. What we didn't expect was the incredibly slow

pace of play. When we tee'd off (8:00 AM) there was no one in front of us. We played six holes in just under an hour and

figured we'd be playing at a nice relaxing pace. Then on the 7th hole we caught a threesome with a foursome in front of them. Everything changed. Our three hour round turned into four and a half hours of endless waiting. We're not good players

when the pace is slow. We get frustrated, rush our shots, and lose interest. Towards the end all we wanted to do was get off

the course. There actually was a Ranger but all he did was drove by a couple of times and apologized for the slow pace and

told us to be sure and stay hydrated. Oh well, we got a great Hot Deal from Golfnow so we'll just hope for a better experience next time. It's still a good course for the money.

Coarse is still in good shape. No real hot weather yet. All greens pretty consistent with each other. The guy in the pro shop is not very friendly and should real change his attitude. He could be the difference in a first time player coming back or not. I've learned to ignore him but he can still get under your skin. I guess he doesn't have anything to do with the actual coarse though.

Course is in average to good shape from tee to green with good pace on the greens. Course is starting to see a little brown out especially in the rough as we approach the summer season. Pace of play was great and got a great deal on Golf Now. Will look to play again sometime soon.

I booked this round on golfnow as a hotdeal. It was great smoking deal i couldn't resist. Plus it's acourse I never played before. So I was excited to cross another one off my bucket list. As I arrive to the golf course.. I was kinda turn off by what I saw. I thought to myself, I bought a hot deal to a beaten golf course that's been neglected. Upon arrival, all the staff was courteous. It was a slow day so everyone was spread out on the course which was awesome. As I got to the first tee box, to my surprise. The fairway and green was keep in very great shape. If you hit outside of the fairway, it is still playable. The plus side is to me is, the bunker actually have real sand! Lol! Not just some hard dirt...I was so impress how they kept the fairway and green that I booked another round on golfnow the following day to golf with my friends. I'm eager to see what they think.

Played Saturday at noon with no one in front or behind us. I'm a single & the twosome they paired me with were awesome. They were 20 handicaps but wanted to play the tips which as a 14 I enjoy. It was good we could take our time, the course was crazy long with good winds blowing. # 18 was a 495 yard par 4, I challenge even single digits on that track. Highly recommended to play because I definitely will.

This course for being around for a long time is a great track. The fairways are lined with matured tress and sand traps in tough places. There is a few water holes to keep you honest but overall is great course. The only recommendation I would make to the course is trying to maintain the pine needles taking over a few greens.

Greens are so so shape for most part.

Lots of dead trees and others that need grooming.

Not what I expected from a private course.

All in all considering price and etc l was satified.

Nice course with wide fairways and good greens. The rough was not thick, but rather weedy, much easier to play from the short grass of the fairways. A few greens should have been blown off of tree debris from the overnight (early tee-time). Overall, it was a good course with traditional layout for Sun City.

The course was in much worse shape. the fairways were in poor condition and the greens were hard but not fast...interesting. They were also very i,consistent. Not worth the money. Maybe for $25 or $30.
