I have nothing but praise for this course. I used the golf now app, so for the price I paid it was worth it. They were cart path only, but didn't bother me a bit as I like to walk courses. I think this was only due to the time of year and over seeding. Staff was super friendly and made the experience that much better. Thanks, will play again when the rates are low on golf now.

The course just came off over-seeding, so it was cart path only. This slows down play but still came in at 4 hrs. Give it two weeks, and this course will be in great shape and a worth wile course to play.

We were shocked when the gentleman in the pro shop told us it was cart path only! They had just done reseeding on the course and did not want carts driven on the grass. I am not sure who I am more upset with, the course or Golf Now. It did state cart path only on my sheet from Golf Now, but it was rather small print for such a major factor in deciding if you want to play a course. They didn't even allow us to drive in the rough.

The greens were the slowest I have ever played, probably about a 4 on the Stimpmeter. no joke

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We apologize that you weren't aware that the course was cart path only when booking your round. We are lifting this rule and will be back to regular play starting tomorrow, October 19th. We hope you consider giving us another shot in the near future. Thanks for playing!

The course had been winterized (overseeding fairways and greens) and had not grown in when we played. It was a windy day, but had a great time playing the course. Not overly difficult, but still challenging. Lots of houses around the course, but was laid out to give plenty of room for missed shots. Staff was very friendly.

So a little disappointed by course conditions but understand. Fairways are horrible while they kill off the grass to reseed. Greens were a little on the rough side too. Overall can see a challenging course, with great views when they get their course back in shape.

I understand that conditions this time of year can be poor. But the greens where quick. You had to kind of bounce on to the green or they would roll off. The fairways looked like they had been punched, but definitely playable. Awesome price and the course has some pretty cool views.

Not every Vegas course can have a spectacular desert vistas for a view but for a course surrounded by houses take a moment and look behind you as you climb the back 9. Once your at the top you'll enjoy one of the most scenic par 3's with a panoramic view of the LV skyline. The climb makes it a golfers challenge and the view is why we enjoy the game. It's a great course worth a tourist play and a favorite among locals.

This course is a great value for the money. Pace of play was somewhat slow, but not horrible. It is a retirement community, so the golfers are primarily retirees. The refreshment cart made several stops through-out the round. Not my cup of tea, but I can see how some people might enjoy playing this course.

Best practice facility on the property at Sun City, when the grass tees are open. Friendly staff, golf course layout winding up the valley with a great view of the strip on one par 3. I was there in the summer so not a lot of seasonal golfers playing in the heat but it did not bother me. Ball flies in Vegas, course plays a bit short. Good course, great value.
