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.

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!

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

This course is presently under reconstruction on the back nine. It would have been nice to know that when we signed up for the tee time online with GolfNow. The transition at the end of nine holes was seamless but still I would have passed on the tee time if I had known upfront that only nine holes were available to play....

With the two groups ahead of us both being fivesomes, there was a lot of waiting; esp. on the par threes. Sometimes, three groups waiting at the tee. And starting on one and ten with crossovers can really slow things down. Course was in pretty good shape.

Price was right. They told me they had no carts when I arrived and said I would have to walk or call Golf Now and get my money back. I called Golf Now and a cart magically appeared after they talked to the golf course. Good layout, but had some weird pin and tee placements.

Great course will miss it this summer (refit). Only complaint is the delay in cross over penalized 25 minutes and then put behind 2 extra groups for playing the front in 90 minutes. Happens quite often this time if year. Made 3 hour round 4:15 .otherwise a great track.

The course itself was great fun. Very good condition especially considering they are gearing up for a renovation. Greens were very nice. Very enjoyable.

We had a few issues though. First off we paid for a power cart and were told upon arrival that there were none, they were all out and had no idea when they would be back.As we booked thru Golf Now there would be no price adjustment for a pull cart. (We did get a power cart for the back 9).

Secondly there is little direction to find the course and Sun City is a maze of concentric circles. Even with GPS it was hard to find. There are also no diagrams of the course, none on signs, none on the scorecard, no pictographs , no hieroglyphics nothing! Just shoot on to the fairway and hope the green is out there.

All that aside it is a lovely course, good pace, (even with 5 some on the course) mostly forgiving layout and interesting pin placements.
