We enjoyed playing here, the staff was very friendly. The greens are coming along, we got used to them.
Old Sun City classic.
Staff is grest, especially Gloria. New greens are fast but a good challenge.
Great start to the new year!
Was hesitant to play as the weather was supposed to be cold and I read that the greens were "painted"" dormant bermuda as they didn't overseed them ..But the price was right so I booked a tee time...Glad I did! Teamed up with another walker and had a great time as the course was in fine shape and the painted greens putted beautifully! They were fast but true and it made for a fun round. First time playing this Sun City course but I will sure be back..Starter was very nice too...Just a great way to start the New Year!
Greens are getting much softer and easier to read. We love this course.
Super slick greens
Must play again. Good fairways, sand traps and the greens where vary fast. 1st nine slow. Jumped in front of 4 some at turn and was able to complete round Must play again now that I know the layout. 16 handicap shot 81
This course is number one in my book.
Had a great round of golf today, can't wait to do it again. thanks.
4 star overall rating
Overall course was in very good shape. The one thing I did notice was it seemed the greens were not over seeded in the Fall so they had been painted at some point and were fast as lightening but to the credit of the maintenance crew they all putted true. The one negative that everyone in our group had was that green side bunkers had too much sand in them leading to inconsistent play. Pace of play was fine (4 hr., 5 min.).........
Great conditions and value
I played here early on a Sunday morning.
This is not a particularly interesting or challenging course, but the holes have enough variety in yardages, with some undulating terrain, so that it is not the boring pancake-flat snoozefest of a course that it could otherwise have been.
It is sort of a hard course to lose a ball on. The fairways are pretty wide, and the houses are set far enough back to not be intrusive. There is a very shallow drainage canal running along some holes, but it is easy to grab an errant ball out of.
I hear a lot of locals complaining about the greens, which were re-grassed this year. I believe they were not overseeded this fall due to being new, and the surfaces are very firm and fast. Personally, I enjoy this sort of condition, and this was one of my favorite things about today's round at Willowcreek. They putt very smoothly but I imagine can be frustrating to someone with a poor short game or someone who puts a lot of topspin on approach shots.
Pace of play was about 4:20, which would have been sub-4 hours if it weren't for a fivesome a couple of groups ahead that caused some waiting. Why these Sun City courses allow fivesomes during prime time, I have no idea, I think they do it either in part to discourage non-regulars/non-residents from playing there, or because the retieree clientele is in no hurry to go anywhere...
It is an easy course to walk, and I was not the only walker out there. 40 bucks to walk this course in a December weekend is a great value especially given the great conditions. I will definitely be back, even though I'm not the target demographic. In my opinion this is currently the best of the original Sun City courses.
Greens weren’t over seeded. Old Bermuda grass sprayed green and fast as glass. What a hoot. GolfNow should be ashamed for not disclosing this fact as an advisory prior to booking. Don’t play this course this winter.
This is the second weekend in a row that we have played Willow Creek. The greens and the course is outstanding. The greens are a little fast due to the new turf that was laid over the summer.. We played 18 holes with two people in under three hours and 45 minutes. Definitely our a course of choice.
Enjoyed the Improvements
They have made some improvements since last year. I was very impressed with how much better the greens were. I will come back again.
Amazing course. My girlfriend and I played here quite a bit before they redid the entire golf course and greens. Wow couldn’t believe how awesome the greens were and the fairways were like hitting on carpet. Will definitely be back next week in the play again.
we all enjoyed playing this course. the greens could use some water as they were very fast, other than that the course was perfect.
Back nine was closed, had to play the front twice.
Only front 9 open
Course not busy only front 9 open, new irrigation construction going on back 9. Friendly staff, and a beautiful day on the golf course.
Had a 1243 tee time prepaid on golfnow. Upon check in, reservation couldn't be found. After some keen research, it was found but not posted in their system for some reason. Guys were very helpful and took care of the confusion quickly. Thanks for making it go smoothly! We actually were able to get out early due to the mishap and were on our own as a twosome. Worked out GREAT. Finished in 3 hours, had a great day and the course was in very good condition; especially the greens. Thanks to the staff!
half the course was closed
ok round but it would have been nice to be alerted that I would be forced to play the front nine twice.
according to another player golf now only explained the alert notice after the round was booked
Never got off
My son who is an experienced player was turned away for not being 13. Decided to play elsewhere. Palmbrook country club was very inviting and accommodating. I know what your thinking, I wouldn’t want an 8 yr playing in front of me either; but he plays faster than most the adults or seniors I get behind and 13 is a ridiculous age to limit at, but that was these old birds thrive on is rules rules rules
