I have played one other of the four courses at Sun City Grande. Conditions were good, the weather was perfect.

The check-in staff were great...friendly, very helpful, attentive.

The Starter was a jerk and does not reflect the helpful attitude of the rest of the staff we interacted with.

Pace of play is an issue (I played there twice last week) and bailed both days at hole 15 due to the extreme slow play.

Not a single Marshall monitoring after 11am.

Sadly, I was there on behalf of a Client looking for Golf Course Real Estate in the West Valley.

I have played Granite Falls before, normally the South Course. I was pleasantly surprised (no pun intended) how nice the North course was. Great layout, greens rolled nice even though a little crispy. Pace of play was a 4 hour round. My only knock is the staff at times, especially the starter who was pretty rude, at least pretend to enjoy talking to people and explaining the local rules. It was the same both times I've played Granite Falls. Other than that, a great round with some very nice locals, will recommend to my friends.

The 4 Sun City Grande courses are always in the best of shape in the summer. They are always mowing, trimming, cleaning or just generally maintaining the course so well. Greens were nice and quick. From tee to green it is in great shape. Play it while you can before the dang snowbirds come back.

I played Monday and it was a shotgun, I was on 6a by myself. I thought I took the wrong turn and was on the wrong course. I finally came up on a twosome named Sam and Dan. We had a great time and thank them it was fun.

Granite Falls North for this time in August is in great shape from tee to green. The layout is interesting and challenging with many immense sand bunkers in the fairways and guarding the greens. Had the course to my self and my golfing buddy so pace of play was excellent. Got a great deal on Golf Now as this course is usually unavailable during prime season. Highly recommend and will look for any reasonable opportunity to play it again soon.

We love playing the courses at Sun City Grande. We only play them in summer because of cost and fact they are packed in winter time. North course is true challenge. I like fact that most par threes are shorter, not 220 yards. Very wide open and little sand. Rough is very fair and can be difficult as ball will sometimes drop deep down. Closing hole is a great finishing hole. Since my brother and I are usually only a few strokes separated, this hole is one to win or lose match on.

Pleasantly surprised by the condition of this course. You'd be hard pressed to believe it's august and not November. Every aspect of this course was in fantastic shape and the price was a bargain! My one complaint...could they please tell their maintenance staff to stop as well as cease mowing when the players are playing shots and putting!

We had not played this course in a few years and can't wait to get back. We usually only play it in summer as it is expensive and stuffed in regular golf season. There were a few bald spots in the fairways and rough was very challenging but fair. Greens were true and very consistent. We started at 11:50 and did not see anyone but a single behind us for a few holes. It was like our own private course. You need to take plenty of liquids as there is very little water and no beverage cart.Can't wait to go back.

I had a great time playing this course. Not one of the hardest courses that I usually play but I found it challenging enough to keep me focus and think of each every shot

Course in great condition and obviously the price is right for this well maintained track.

Will definitely play again soon and bring some friends with me

Thank you and it was delightful

They need more water throughout the course. It also needs to be better marked if the north snack stand is open. We wasted time driving back to the club house to get a hot dog because the north shack said it was open and was not.
