About

Holes 18

Style Traditional/Executive
Par 72
Length 6357 yards
Slope 122
Rating 69.7

Willowcreek Golf Course in Sun City has one regulation length 18-hole course, the Willowcreek Course, as well as one executive length course, the Willowbrook Course. The traditional layout of the Willowcreek Course features three lakes that form water hazards that come into play on four holes. The course is relatively flat but there are some minor rolling hills that cause uneven lies. The fairways and greens are consistently in good condition on both courses and they are both considered very user-friendly. The Willowcreek Golf Course facility used to be private but it is now open to the public.

Fast greens

The last 2 times we played were both at Willowcreek. The greens roll true and are VERY fast. If you play fast greens all the time you prefer them. We don't, and I am 3 putting more than usual. Pace of play was outstanding. Staff are always friendly.

Greens are ridiculous

Fairways and rough are in decent shape, Greens however have no grass (maybe roots). Rolls flat but save you money. Very frustrating.

Couse great, Greens?

Sent off early by myself and and the front nine went very quick. Joined the 2 hot-deal guys sent from my time sent even earlier after 9 holes. The course was in good shape except for the greens and even they were smooth and obviously rolled but unreasonably hard and fast. On 3 holes, for example, the ball first stopped within 6" from the cup and then proceeded to roll 10' to 15' away. Even the pros would scoff at this speed.

Can't really complain with a round in 3 hours, on green fairways, and great company.

Rock Hard Bare Greens

It's a shame.

The greens have no grass and are rock hard. Believe what everyone else is saying.
At the very least they should saturate them with water twice a day to hold.

Green in awful condition

It would have been nice if we had been told before playing that there was no grass on the greens.

Greens are really rough

Hard packed greens with different grasses to no grass. The rest of the course was nice. Good challenging approach shots with pins protected by bunkers. All in all, a fun day.

5 somes = 4.5 hr round

Slow play because of all the 5 somes, took 4:45 hrs to play 18, greens are fast because there is no grass it's more like hydro seeding, smooth and no blades of grass

Okay

Fairways and Tee boxes were in good shape however the greens were basically paimted mud...simply the opinion of our group but this course isn't worth the $46 ( $48 after tax )....Pick almost any of the other Sun City courses...... they're much better for the same price...

Use of “Crossovers”

Course s/b removed from Golf now due to use of “Crossover” tee offs simultaneously on 1st & 10th tees. I had a 730am tee time to beat the crowd. They had me tee off on the 10th tee & when I had to crossover to the 1st tee, they expected me to wait 15 minutes & then go behind a 5 some!

Terrible greens

Everything is okay until you try and reach the greens they are like concrete with no grass balls just bounce on them and there is no grass seems like something fake to resemble grass they are very fast but expect your ball to roll all over the place
