Located in the east valley, the Sunland Village Golf Course is an 18-hole course with a traditional layout. The semi-rolling landscape of the course features subtle elevation changes and tall, mature trees sprinkled throughout. The medium-sized greens are slightly undulating and the fairways are tree-lined. There are also ponds on the course that come into play on many holes. A notable hole is the par-3 16th. It is a mere 86 yards, but it requires a precise shot past water to the green. The Sunland Village Golf Course facility has three different putting and chipping greens for golfers to use as well as a driving range.

my friend invited me to go play a short east side course and initially i was apprehensive. i am not good by any means , but generally play longer courses (6500 yards) on average. but i was very surprised. nice course lots of grass (no dirt) and well manicured. all in all a fun day and would play course again.

was a few older people there....probably that type of community.

This is my first experience at this course. I heard it was a nice course and can confirm that assessment. Fairways and greens are in excellent condition. Par 4 fairways on the front are generous, but things tighten up on the back. Undulating speedy greens are a challenge. Water comes into play on quite a few holes. Many of the par 3s are short and fun. I recommend giving the course a try.

The overall course was ok. Fairways were in great shape but the greens were. Way below average. The ball continued to bounce along the greens making the whole round very irritating. We played 5 courses this week and it is not one we will put on our try again list

With Greenfield Lakes looking more like an episode of GoT after the dragons got ahold of it, Sunland Village is a very nice, close by alternative for those looking to play a shorter course in the east Valley. Lots of water scattered throughout the course, trees line many fairways making it imperative to keep it in the fairway on the "longer" holes.

Entire course is green, even in the dead of summer. Tee boxes in good shape, greens were true and well conditioned, bunkers needed a bit more sand to make them more playable. Staff was courteous and friendly even to someone who doesn't live in the Sunland Village complex, which is sometimes an issue at other courses.

Very nice course to practice your mid and short irons. Also has an all grass driving range and practice putting green. PoP was about 2.75 hours.
