Greens were very slow and difficult to putt. My main complaint was that my round was prepaid with Golf Now. When I checked in , the head pro in shop said that my green fee did not include the cart. When I told him that my reservation said the cart was included and it was paid in full, he said that Golf Now is messed up and if I wanted to play , I had to give him an extra $5 for the cart. I had no choice but to pay. I will contact Golf Now to get a credit. I have been online booking for two years now weekly and I never had this happen. Will not play here again since the course apparently does not want to follow Golf Now policy. Thank you.

Got to the golf course with my Golfnow reservation and sent my wife into the club house to get us signed up and get a cart. She came out and informed me the staff said we do not get a cart that we have to pay for one. I entered the proshop and showed the staff member that my paperwork from Golfnow showed, in writing, that a cart was included. The staff member said they never give carts for Golfnow tee times. Then he told me I would have to take it up with golfnow. I told him that I would and they should not use Golfnow services if they do not intend to honor their agreement. He said something like he did not like the fact that Sun City golf courses used Golfnow. I paid for the cart and contacted golfnow on the telephone, got the standard recording they would call me back. It has been half a day now and no return phone call.

The course was in great shape. Staff very friendly. Course set up for a US Open. Rough was very high and thick. Very lucky to find your ball even when you know where it went. For a retirement community course the rough was very unfair and made round not very fun. Friends that visited don't want to play here again!!

Friendly course, well manicured; great for mixed groups of average duffers looking for a relaxed course; handicap <10 may want more of a challenge unless they just simply desire a relaxing round with the gang. Had fun with friend & wife. Enjoy all SC courses when we visit. Occasionally will step out and tee off at a high priced desert style course with greater challenge.

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.
