I was looking for a course on the spur of the moment, and had heard of this but never played it.<br/> I didn't expect a lot due to the amount of traffic this small course in Sun City gets, but I was pleasantly surprised with the condition of the course. The pace was great, we never stopped. I'm sure that is not always the case, but it was a great day for me. I will definitely return.

This was my first time playing this course and it was a great experience. The staff were friendly and my tee off was right on time.<br/> The greens were in good shape. The only downside was being a 9 hole course the pace on the first nine holes was a little slow. The course Marshall came by to see if things were okay and we said that it was just the volume of people playing and we understood. The 2nd nine you play the same holes but from different tees. On this part of the round the pace opened up more.<br/> All in all I plan to be back.

I know when you hear executive you think "ok my driver is not getting any play today", not here there is actually a par 5 on this course a a couple nice par 4's.<br/> Overall a nice course with really good greens. Will pay again. Word of advise though they only have 6 carts, which wasn't a problem since we used my dads, just thought i'd throw it out there.

Nice course for those out for a relaxed, not-too-difficult round or serious golfers out for a practice round. A couple of longer par-4's and 5's interspersed with the expected par-3's. Fun place to putt, as a few greens have pretty much slant. Designed as a 9-hole track, they added 9 extra tees so you can play 18 holes using the same greens twice. Pleasant experience for someone looking for a simple, short, not-too-expensive course. Practice and chipping greens, but no range.

About 3 years ago I walked this course and I did it again this time and had a good time and played with 3-some. Played 18 holes. This course is only 9-hole, but have designed two teeing off, Tee box, for playing 18-holes. Fairways are green and well kept. Putting green is fair. People in front of us were playing slow pace, but I think this course needed additional bench in each hole to sit down while waiting our tern to tee-off.

The course is challenging and is generally well kept, greens are in great shape, However.....................<br/> The course is basically nine holes and you play from two sets of tees to make it eighteen. The challenge is on busy days, the pro shop has to maintain absolute control on who is teeing off and when. I have played here before and had no problems. Unfortunately on this day, the pro shop had lost complete control of who was teeing off, whether confirmed times or crossovers. I was about 45 minutes late in teeing off, took 4 hours to play 14 holes on an executive 18!!!!<br/> Had to leave as I had an appointment.<br/> RCSC has to work on improving the scheduling on busy days.Glad these folks are only controlling tee times and not the nation's air traffic!

Be aware that this is only a 9 hole course and the cart is not included in your "GolfNow" fee. There is no driving range and the chipping and putting area is small. Club house is small and there is no restaurant or bar. I picked this course, because the "GolfNow" cost was only $14 and discounted 70%. When I got there I asked what their green fee was. The standard rate was $30 and senior rate was $28 with a cart. We had to pay $10.50 per person for a cart, so we only saved $3.50. Hardly 70%. Very disappointing.

First time playing here. Same nine twice, but different sets of tee locations per 9 give each hole a different look the second time through. Check in was VERY pleasant (think his name was Chris). Course conditions were very nice. A par 5 (and two 4's) on an executive course were a nice surprise, allowing a great risk vs. reward scenario on some holes.. Greens a tad slow and nearly all slope back to front

Only reason that I didn't rate the course a 5 star: no driving range and an overly eager ranger who didn't seem to care whether you were mid-swing or not, just kept on driving with his bright orange flags. Several times he drove right up while setting up for an approach shot, got out of his cart with a bottle of seed in hand, waiting for us to finish our swing. After creating a divot, he scurries over to fill in with the mix before we even put the club back in the bag. The kicker was when he asked us to use the cart path only on a couple of holes so WE wouldn't cause any more ruts through the soggy spots on the on the course. Which normally would make perfect sense had our foursome not been WALKING the course with pull carts. Last time I checked, those were pretty non intrusive and considering he drove straight through the soggy spots on the way to scolding us....but who am I to judge?

Lack of driving range and the over zealous ranger were not enough to keep me from recommending or returning however. We laughed off Ranger Rick and will warm up at a driving range nearby next time.
