Classic Sun City course in good condition. The brilliant white sand bunkers are so nice you almost don't mind when you get in them. A bit short from the white tees, blues are a good challenge.

Great facilities

Good value

Course is in great shape after maintenance.

Only issue was the group behind us kept hitting into us. Given that the round was under 4 hours, this behavior was inexcusable. Wish they had a Marshall on the course

This is a really great course to play in the summer while it's only 15 bucks for non residents. The pro shop can sometimes be unwelcoming to outsiders and especially younger people but you are on,y there long enough to pay and get a cart key. The course is a fun layout with a combination of long and short holes. Greens are a little slow usually but the course is in good shape for August. If you hit it well here you can score well. The 18th is a great finishing hole especially with a back hole location. Give it a try during the summer when it's cheap and empty and you will be glad you did!

I rated the course condition as good, but for time of year I would say it is excellent. The fairways are in very good condition, and the greens putt true even if they would be rated a little slow, It was a fun day .

Identical facilities to all SCW golf courses so if you know one facility, you are right at home. Water can be a player on several holes but only if you are hitting bad shots. Sand traps are appropriately placed to make you think about your shots. Overall excellent experience and the staff is as friendly as can be found anywhere. 78 degrees with clear skies which has been the case here for the last three months. Perfect winter golf.


Player Tip: Keep to the left on 18 as the water is unseen until the second shot. You can drive the water if you hit it right.

I would suggest playing the back tees here. We played it with some friends yesterday, and the white tees resulted in a multitude
of very short iron shots into quite large greens. While this resulted in a fine score and ego-boost, we shall play the back tees next time (and there will be one of those soon, guaranteed!). The course could do themselves quite a favor and upgrade the clubhouse area, unless you like hot dogs & light beer as about your only options after the round.
