The Sun City South Golf Course is normally a private club but during the summer months, public play is allowed. The course has a traditional layout with four sets of teeboxes for a variety of different golfing options, which allow golfers to work on a range of different handicaps. The golf course has a fair share of challenges with several sand bunkers and plenty of trees scattered throughout. There are also out-of-bounds stakes providing more difficulty. Water hazards come into play on some holes as well. The Sun City South Golf Course facility has a putting green and chipping area for golfers to use in addition to the course.

Great Day

They're letting the fairways dye for overseeding so I
liked all the extra roll. Staff is always nice and paired
me with extra nice man. I consider this and SC North
my favorite courses to play. Not to hard and wide
fairways, Don't have to worry about hitting houses'.

Choose tees wisely

Great golf course. Choice of tee box should be considered before round. Played white tees and it was a challenge. I'm a 11 handicap and had to avoid fairway bunkers in my driving distance. Great course great layout

Favorite course

Fairways ready for overseed so not very much grass
but still playable. New club house redone sand traps.
Great Value. Friendly staff. New practice and good
new putting green. Wide fairways. What's not to like!

Another Great Day

Fairways a little brown and drying out so got a lot of
roll. Redoing a lot of the traps and we now have a new
clubhouse. As always we were treated great. Played in
less than 3 hours. Has to be one of the best bargains
in this area.

Unkempt

I’m fairly sure there were only 2 staff on duty when we arrived for our 1:30 tee time, and that is for the entire facility. A new clubhouse is under construction but yet to open, so a trailer serves as everything. The rough was sparse and the fairways not clearly delineated, so direction of play off the tee was an issue on many holes. We also had trouble finding the 10th tee, as no signage indicated that we had to cross a roadway. Greens were not consistent in speed. Several carts, albeit with blue flags on them, were driven onto green fringes, and very able bodied players then got out and putted, etc. Dubious need. Many ball marks, divots and poorly raked bunkers. Almost Lastly, our score card already had another players score.....very bad karma. Lastly, a Trump 2020 flag was displayed on a property backing on to the course. It also stated “end the bu######t”. We all know Trump cheats at golf, ,making this flag inappropriate. Other reasons come to mind as well. Resist.

won't be back

Clubhouse currently in a trailer. NO amenities.
Greens rolled like a billiard table due to winter's lack of growth. Rough is all hard brown dead growth.

Split Tees! BEWARE!!!

Played front solo in 85 minutes @ a leisurely pace. As I made the turn, BAM! There was a 5-some teeing off and a 4-some waiting. They told me they were scheduled to go off on 10 @ 1:07. I scratched my head and said I was never told there were split tees.
Went to clubhouse (trailer) and inquired. Waited on by a surly clerk and an even surlier women that they play split tees here and I should've known. I played too fast and was to wait 30-40 minutes. The dude never informed me of this when I checked in and were were NO notifications in the trailer stating this. He just shrugged his shoulders and grunted. The old lady made some insulting remarks. I WILL NOT RETURN!
ZERO stars for personnel.
Course in fine shape. My recommendation is only if you're okay w/split tee philosophy.

Clubhouse being renovated

They are currently renovating the clubhouse, the golf shop is in a trailer and the bathrooms at the turn are spot-a-pots. They said work should be done sometime in March. The starter/check in guy was pretty busy answering phones, scheduling tee times and calling people to the tee. That probably accounted for his brusque manner. He tried to put me in a fivesome. I raised an objection (fivesomes are an abomination IMHO). They put me in a foursome and it worked out fine.

Good Times on Sun City South

Fairways and Greens were in great shape. The sand traps have good sand in them and I should know because I put myself in six of them. Greens were fast and a little hard to read. Best part was the people I played with. I always enjoy the golfers on the Sun City courses. The clubhouse is under reconstruction so don't expected much there.
