I always like playing this course, it's always clean and well groomed and the holes offer enough challenge for the intermediate golfer while keeping it simple enough for the less-than-intermediate player. Only complaint was the pace of play, which was VERY SLOW. Granted, I was playing as a solo, but I was WALKING behind groups of 2 that had carts, and figured that would make up the difference. Yet I was waiting as much as 5-8 minutes on many holes and was only able to get 13 holes played before dusk came. All-in-all I didn't fret too much about it because of the great price for the round, and I will still play there many times. The key to improving your odds on pace of play is to plan your round for times when the course is likely to be open, like later afternoon on mid-weekdays.

Nice west valley course that provides a welcome break from peak season pricing! Decent layout that's pretty straightforward, it only plays 6200 yards from the tips but the greens make up for the lack of length with killer pen placements and undulating greens. Overall good experience, very friendly staff. If you use GolfNow's website be aware that the HOTDEAL does not include the cart, I wasn't aware of that until check in and was slightly taken aback but still a positive experience.

Played on a cold early morning (7:50 A.M., 40 degrees). Had an enjoyable group to play with; played front nine in 1:30 with no waits (fist group off one) but then had to wait 35 minutes to start on back because course had tee times off both nines. I feel we could have fit in between groups starting on 10. Seems like this was a punishment for our rapid pace of play Once we were on the back we were able to play in just under 2 hours so overall time of 3:40 was still excellent. Course was in good shape and we enjoyed our round.

Nice course and friendly people. Expect 4 1/2 hr round in January thru early April. We waited quite a bit since they let 5 somes out but still managed it in 4 1/2 hrs. Third time we've played it with Hot Deals on GolfNow so a really good price.

Enjoyed a weekday round but discovered upon arrival when checking in that what I booked on GolfNow was for a walking rate and didn't include our carts. Had to pay $10/seat extra. So $30 more. Wasn't a deal breaker but definitely unexpected nonetheless. I just know now to make sure I read the fine print in the future.

We chose this course after looking at the deals on golfnow, arrived about 20 minutes early, went to the clubhouse and wished I booked somewhere else, the lady seemed friendly though complained about the computer system, how our reservation wasn't in there and why she hated golf now.

We finally got checked in, late for our time because of checking and got to the first tee b only to have instructions rudely shouted over the loudspeaker to us, do this, get cart back by dark, your clubs need to be back by 5....

The course itself was nice, greens were too slow for my liking and it was a great day with 3 generations playing.

On return the cart guys were great and friendly, not the same can be said for the clubhouse lady, snarl and rude again.

More customer training is needed.

Course in great shape for this close to overseed, greens better (faster and truer) than others I've played in the last three weeks. Fairway turf a little long (no roll at all) but no problem finding the ball.

Nice course.Lots of canal water that you can't see come in to play. The rough is shot but very thick hard to hit out of. Stay in the short grass. Staff was very friendly. Had a good time will be back.

first time playing here. nice layout overall, with some water features that tie in the holes. everything was great but the greens had multiple grass forms which made the surface rough and untrue. maybe it will grow out once overseeding is completed.

I'm a member of RCSC so I play all the Sun City courses when I'm in town. I usually play a very early tee time so pace of play is never a problem and I always walk. Beware - 5 somes are a allowed and happen all the time on any of the RCSC courses. The course is flat with a nice layout.

This course doesn't challenge you with lots of sand traps but I found four of them anyway. Plenty of long holes to use the driver. Greens and fairways were in good shape. I would definitely play here again.
