Course is in ok shape given the recent surge in hot weather. However, the pace of play is terrible!! Club should consider 10 minute interval between t-times and at least one "starter timer" to moderate the pace of play. Apparently, the course puts through close to 300 rounds of golf /day ... the pace of play shows it! It should not take 5 hours to play this 18 hole layout with riding carts!

This is a fun course in a convenient location. This course is well maintained with a friendly crew inside and outside.

There are enough challenges to test your skills.

While this west valley retirement community course is a good value it is mind numbingly slow to play. (It is of course March in the valley - the bane of all golfers in the valley who live here year round!) But that said the course is in very nice shape. Tee to green its quite full and the greens are consistent, and roll well.

The course was in average condition for this time of year. While all of the other courses are in peak shape this time of year, it makes sense we were able to get out for $30 at Sundance. The course layout is great and there is a ton of potential, but the course isn't in great shape. The greens were like cement. Very undulating and challenging, but also unfair due to the condition. Again, there is a ton of potential here and the price is right. Don't expect a peak AZ course though.

I called at 9:45 to ask if there was a frost delay causing a backup. He said no, everything is fine. I arrived at 10:45 for my 11:20 tee time. Desk guy said there was a 30 minute delay which turned into an hour. Not sure why I wasnt told on the phone. Drove from the east valley. finally done at 5:30. not a big fan.

Areas around pins and the cups are too ragged need to move daily. Worn areas due to cart traffic should be roped off to stay on path. Sand in traps not uniform.

Staff is great!

I liked the layout of the holes. The greens where just not flat, they were slopy. It was a challange. I haven't swung the club in a while and still came out with 4 pars through 15 holes. The pace could be faster with all the old people. Staff and facility nice and clean. Good prices for happy hour !! I'd play it for $20 anyday.

Like many of the more reasonably priced courses in the Phoenix area this course is somewhat rough in some areas...I thought some of the greens were a bit off on this round...not as good as in previous rounds. The balance of the course was enjoyable to play

This was the second time playing this course, once from the Black tees and once from the Silver tees. Playing from the Blacks was far more challenging than from the Silvers. The fairways were in very good shape as well as the greens. It seemed the greens rolled somewhat inconsistent and divot marks need to be repaired (although this is an indication of player ignorance). Although the greens are a challenge they border on being "gimmicky".

All in all, a very good value and recommended.
