Although the course layout was interesting the day I played was not. I had Mowers, Thatchers and whatnot behind and in front of me. There was tons of clumped grass everywhere so very difficult to locate your ball. Pace of play was horrible.

Based on the above it was not a fun day but I would like to play again once the course is absolutely play ready.

They had way to many groups booked out on the course and had to wait on most tee boxes 5-15 minutes to tee off. Course was in fairly good condition and vary challenging with the hills and the sloped greens.

Not a bad experience except the Ranger was a little pushy. We finished our round in 3:50 but were still told to pick up the pace. Was frustrating and we were hitting in to the foursome in front of us. Didnt like it that he made us feel rushed.

Will probably go somewhere else next time.

Beautiful course with wide open, plush fairways! Course protects it self with undulating greens that are a little slow and tough pin placements! Don't be a sucker! Play to a safe spot. We will be back! NOTE: Because fairways are so wide open really focus on a target line !

Recommended play for18 is about 4 hours & we played in 3-1/2 hours and were pushed the whole front nine. Never saw the group ahead of us even off the first tee so don't know how far they started ahead of us and the group behind started before we were even on the green.

Don't play the Sun City Grand courses very often. Great round. Fairways wide open, rough was short, enormous bunkers, greens were fast. Liked everything about it. Very fair, although probably too short for the long hitters, and too easy for the advanced level player.

Nice course. Small problem shop. Practice facilities more then adequate. Challenging and visually pleasing. ONLY issue I had was can you PLEASE put water stations every 3-4 holes if there is no beverage cart? It was only 100 but hydration is important!

I found this course fairly demanding. There were about 4-5 shots where you're playing blind. Lots of hills. The greens are raised and you can't play for the bounce up and on, you must hit the green. There were a lot of wet spots on the course and some in front of the greens. #17 will give you a driver shot for the short hitter. I had trouble with the green on #6 and 3 putted. I haven't 3 putted in months. The one thing that bothered me the most was the lack of drinking water on the course. By 13, I was dying out there, I did have my own to help some but ran out. 4:05 for a threesome is slow.

Course was fun to play but perhaps that was due to the fact that I was paired up with three ladies. I was serious at the beginning but got pulled out of my game by the funny repartee". The ladies didn't hold me up and actually played pretty fast. Started @ 0600 and were done by 0950. Course is 63 hundred and some change from the white tees. Shot 38-37 and should have been in the 60's. The greens were virtually un puttable due to some fungus or moss. Looked like Chambers Bay. I liked the Par 3's challenging and with some places not to be.. Par 4's were challenging and the Par 5 were long enough and well trapped. The 18th is a great finishing hole. Will play again.

Was not aware of shotgun start so there was a lot of scrambling among groups when I arrived (early). Was paired with twosome that were residents and advised me where to play. Overall the course was in good condition, pace of play could of been faster.

The greens don't look good, but they are true and fast right now. Bunkers are course and difficult to hit out of from the fairways. I played in triple digit temperatures and the pace of play was fine. This course, along with the other courses in Sun City Grand have ice machines available, so you can stock up before the round and during the turn. There is also plenty of water on the course.


Player Tip: Watch out for the water on the 14th hole. You cannot see it from the tee. It comes into play on a long fade. Might want to hit a 3-wood or hybrid.
