While the course is wide open and very playable, the greens run at different speeds, are hard to read and have some of the most unfriendly cups I've ever seen. It's almost impossible to make a ball die in the hole, since every one seems raised. Fun course, but you better play it a lot if you want to score well. I played with another first timer who said he would never play it again because of the greens then made two birdies in a row on the back and retracted his earlier statement. You're going to love it and hate it in the same round!

The temperature was perfect but the wind was a factor. However, this course was very enjoyable especially if one's shot is not as accurate as you might want. It is a typical Sun City layout with some water and some sand bunkers but generally the fairways are quite easy and straightforward. Landscaping was not too difficult either. Tee boxes were well-maintained and a good cart path all around 18 holes. What was surprising were the greens! In excellent condition and VERY challenging to read. This really added to the experience. Last but not least was the staff - they were very friendly and accommodating. Pace of play was just under 4 hours with one group ahead being a bit slow.

For a late April weekend in Arizona, the weather was absolutely perfect and the course was wide open. The fairways were in great shape as were the greens. The sand traps actually had sand in them which can be a rarity for some course west of Phoenix. For the first 11 holes we did not have to wait to tee off. Slowed down some on the back nine but still finished in four hours.

The course was in good shape. Fairways were nice and greens were pretty consistent. I tee'd off behind a group of women that let me play through after the first hole. Pace of play after that was good. Very good value for the money.

The fairways are fairly wide with some bunkers guarding the greens. The clubhouse was nice and clean. The staff was very friendly. The pace of play was very good at a 4 hour round. The greens were a little on the hard side but in great shape. I would definitely come back to play this course.

Hard not to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere along with an interesting layout and challenging undulating greens. Greens were fast but had a few scars expected on a busy course like this. We really enjoyed our day since we were paired with 2 elderly gentlemen who were our unofficial tour guides and a pleasure to play with.

First time playing the course. It was a very playable course. . the fairways were starting to show dryness, but it was still okay. Greens were challenging. It was a good pace of play. The course layout with water on the sides again made it playable, but if you can't hit a straight shot, watch out. Because it was getting dry in the fareways, you got lots of roll. Overall we enjoyed playing this course for the first time.

Fairways were in great shape. Greens a few rough spots. The greens are challenging. Lots of undulations. More than most in Phx. The roughs can be a bit rough. Patches of just dirt. One of my 'go to' course. Play here is always enjoyable

Course conditions getting dry. Played behind a 5 some did not allow us to play through - 2 some. No one ahead of the 5 some. Bunker slope had over a foot of sand and the base bunker was hard packed. If you hit bunker face it was buried. Aprons around greens were hard pack from carts be driven right up to green. Chipping was out extremely tight lies. Over played and ground maintenance was not adequate. Tee boxes were almost all sand.

Course has finally come into great condition after major renovations have been completed last year. As with most Sun City courses, the greens are where the challenges are. Particular pin placements can make for almost guaranteed 3 putts, which makes knowing your putting skills better be on par to score well. From tee to green, course has developed back to its wonderful shape prior to the renovation. Great course for the now high winter prices. At $42.00, it's hard to find a course in this price range, in this condition & time of year, anywhere. Well worth the trip!
