Course had some challenging holes, especially from non visible trouble from the tee box. It would be helpful to have pictures of the holes on the scorecards or on the yardage markers on the tee box. Having a GPS with a picture of the hole is a must here. Greens were a little slow due to sand on them. It was a fun course to play! I would definitely play it again.

My experience was not good at all, in your system the Map-it directions are incorrect it took me to a golf course totally in another area (Hillcrest Golf Course ) and from there I was scrambling trying to find the golf course I actually booked with you guys (GolfNow) .. being very frustrated I had to try and find on my own cell phone and driving around like a crazy man finally made to the proper gold course LATE but they did manage to put me on

So as you can tell by going through all that I think I will have to call the golf course from now on to make sure I'm going to the same golf course I booked with you guys ... very frustrating and bad experience on that day!!

I hope you can correct that problem so it doesn't happen to anyone else

Nice golf course right in the middle of housing, great scenery with the cactus and desert surrounding. Course is well laid out, not too hard and not too easy. Friendly staff and the course Marshall was very nice to chat with every so often. Had a foursome of men behind us who played from the ladies tees who pushed us a bit and that was a little annoying as we were hot on the heels of the group in front of us but other than that it was a very pleasant experience.

Course is in pretty good shape and the employees are very friendly. The course layout is lame. Pretty brown desert style off all fairways. Every hole is lined with houses. I can deal with those concerns, what makes this course lame to play is how poorly it was designed. Fairways where the landing area narrows to 10 yards past 200 yards, trees in odd locations blocking approach shots and greens that slope towards hazards. Either pay $20 less and play regular sun city courses or pay $20 more and play sun city grand courses.

I like the course layout. Very challenging at times. I dislike the roughs, too dry and unmanageable, however the round was very enjoyable. Also, the greens seem to be rather firmer than usual.

Course was in pretty good shape. The rough could have used some work, but the fairways and greens were good. We played during a rainy day, so pretty much got the course to ourselves so I cannot comment on pace of play. The course is not the longest but has some challenging holes. Staff was very friendly and I would recommend if you are looking for a good value course.

All Sun City West courses are very good for the money. Trail Ridge has nice greens, good fairways and will require precise shots coming in to the greens.

We were delayed for 30 minutes past our scheduled tee time and then they kept sending out golfers so rapidly that we had three groups on every hole.

Had never played here before but saw a hot deal on golf now so we gave it a try. Love the course even in the rain. we got 18 in in less than 4 hours probably because so few golfers with the wet weather but that was fine with us. Will definitely recommend this course!

Outstanding layout with excellent conditions from tee to green. Greens are perfect smooth no ball marks and quick. Greens are also quite large so practice your long lag putting. Played in 4 hours which for me is slow but mainly due to the twosome we were paired with. Would highly recommend this course and look forward to playing it again in the near future

This remains one of our favorite venues in the NW valley. Holes are interesting and there is some challenge to the layout with water in play on several holes. Pace of play was very good and we finished our round in a little over 4 hours. The course was in great shape; greens were fast and a bit tricky to read. We'll play it again.
