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.

Fairways and greens in good shape. Most [not all ] traps have good sand depth. Enough water to make it interesting but not overly too much of a factor. Course was loaded so it took 4.5 hours to finish where 3.75 - 4.0 hours should normaly be sufficient

Course was in great condition, as expected for this time of year. Layout is pretty standard Sun City fare; flat, small greens, straight forward layout. Greens were in good shape, on the hard and slow side. People who frequent this course don't seem to care about fixing ball marks, there were plenty of them for so early in the morning. There was a particular 3 on the back which had a massive tree directly in front of the blue tee box, unless you have a 20 yard hook in your bag you're stuck bailing out to the right side of the green. For $40 there's more interesting courses in the west valley. Staff was nice, facilities show their age.

Course was in decent enough shape, wide fairways, greens rolled true with a good deal of subtle breaks (and not so subtle ones), pace of play was below average with bigger then normal back ups on par 3 holes, overall a good value that pretty much mirrors the whole Sun City circuit of courses.....

This course allows 5 player groups that walk & are SLOW !!

There is NO RANGER to get some of these groups to keep pace, there was a group of women that had 5 groups right behind them & waiting on each hole when they had 3 holes open in front of them which resulted in over 2.5 hrs front nine at which point 2 players in my group gave up & called it a day, this course really needs to keep the groups moving along but they don't even try.

So we had perfect weather on a Saturday and we have played here before....no memorable holes but always a challenge on all of them. We were set for a 12:45 tee time and got launched 15 minutes late. The front nine was a bit slow but pace picked up markedly on the back so we got finished before sunset. The course is in really good shape and the greens run true and fast.

It has a typical Sun City layout but enough wrinkles to keep you on your toes. All-in-all we will be back!

I like the course and in good shape but very slow play, practice putting green was packed, couldn't even practice... typical Sun City course catering to the snow birds and sending out as many as they can, I was warned that the course was notorious for very slow play with no marshall and it was, 12:52 tee time and barely made 18, almost 3 hours for front nine... that's my only complaint, I play the northwest valley at least twice a week and this the slowest I've experienced yet this year.

As expected when playing a course for the first time, it took me a few holes to get used to the course variations. I learned to trust the hand held GPS and did fine. The course was in good condition and the greens could be difficult (pin placement) but in good shape. The only negative was the poor use of flag color to determine front, middle, back. The colors meant nothing in a few cases.

Too many 5 players groups. No policy for letting smaller groups play through. Pace very slow, took over five and a half hours to play.

Play was very slow because they had a lot of 5some on the course . The 5some in front of us was so slow that it took 4 hours to play 13 holes. When our 3 some finally went around the 5some,the 5some started yelling and swearing at us. We tee off in front of the 5some,then they picked up on the green and started driving in to us.Arguments and fights all over on the course because of so many 5somes and extremely slow play.

Started our round on time at 1:20 but this course has a women's league that because of them took 2 hrs. & 45 mins for the front 9 !! NO ranger ever came by so we could question him, they (women) didn't play the back 9 so with them gone our 4 some played the back in 1 hr 50 mins. when finished I complained to the clubhouse staff but was told they just do what they want to with no concerns with anyone else , I don't place blame on the women's league but on the staff for not enforcing pace of play, will not be returning here.
