Rating 62.0

The course at the Sunbird Golf Resort is a desert-style course that offers three sets of tee boxes to accommodate most skill levels. This executive length golf course has a country club-type atmosphere and offers a good round of golf. The greens are medium sized with some that are multi-tiered and narrow fairways. Bunkers and trees are also present on the course, adding some challenge since they can greatly affect shots. Water hazards also come into play on a few holes. In addition to the executive course at Sunbird Golf Resort, the facility also offers a putting area and chipping green as well as a fully stocked pro shop.

Solid little course

Small course plays about 4500 from the whites. If you select the right tee time pace can be fast. If not your in big trouble. Mostly retirees and they will play in groups of 5 with no regards for paces of play. We played the front with an afternoon tee time. Got backed up four groups on the ninth hole. It was 2:30 so we decided to skip the 9th and noticed the 10th was backed up as well. Went back to one and it was empty!!! From that point we played 18 in about 2.5 hours with two of us.

So warning! They don’t stick by tee times. 90% of the players are retirees and will play in large groups averaging 150 of the tee!

Efficient Round

Good place to play for quicker round. Much shorter course and able to play in 2 hours as a single. If you have time in the afternoon, give it a go.

Great Course

I play this course just about once a week and it is always in great shape. Additionally, the new clubhouse staff goes above and beyond to make sure you have a great time. This may be a mid executive course in a retirement community, but I could have sworn I was at a swanky country club !!
Keep it up!

Great Course

Purchased from Golfnow. Never heard of the course before seeing it on Golfnow. The ratings were very good and the price was great. Beautiful course and pro-shop manager was very personable. We really enjoyed the round.

Sunbird

They do a 7am shotgun Which is a nice time and it moves quickly.
I’ve played many executive courses and this is the best. Well watered and lush. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Great course to take your kids to because no pressure and everyone in the community are retired and very nice

Best round this summer.

We were pleasantly surprised at the conditions compared to many other courses around the east valley. Most of the courses at this value are in rough condition. Pace was good, course was fun, and greens were soft (rare for Az summer). This was our first time playing this course and we will be back.
