Everything was great yesterday with 1 exception: course allowing 5 somes. It just slows down play too much. Slow enough with walkers; add 5 somes to the mix and there becomes "no pace of play."

Nice course that offered some Challenging greens. The clubhouse staff is friendly and had a cart for us ready to go. I don’t know why other courses are we seem to have a tough time managing carts this time of year.

Most who play here complain about tough greens due to slope and undulations. Often i agree but the worst thing anywhere is slow pace of play. Lack of rangers didn't help but allowing fivesomes on weekends makes for 5 plus hour rounds. The group two holes ahead was even allowed to use 4 carts. Abuse of cart rules by non-handicap players was big delay as well since they parked on all sides of the greens.

The play started on hole 10 and from hole through 9 on the “back” 9 it took over 3 hours!

This course was pretty straight forward. The difficulty was the sloping greens. They weren't ridiculous, but you need to play often to get good reads. Pace of play was fine and the staff was very friendly.

This was my first time playing here this year. Usually the course is in good shape but it was a little on the rough side this time. The greens were ok but the fairways and areas around the greends were mowed very short and many shots were from hardpan. The greens are tricky enough to putt without having to attempt shots where it's darn near impossible to spin the approach shots. Might be better when the summer grass starts taking over from the winter rye.

Fine layout BUT that quality is diminished by the PROLIFIC Practice of 5SOMES -& during some leauge event no less ! Waaaaat, . . . .?

So the Greens do present challenge in their undulation and the fine amount of roll-out speed. Fairways do seem nice and even the "rough" gives acceptable lies since it's dormant grass U know.

Bunkering is a strategic hazard but is in fine condition as the sand they use plays very well indeed.

As most locals know these Sun City courses offer good value for the conditions and layouts of theses tracks, will & have been back -THANKS !

fairways are somewhat green, but the ground is hard everywhere, hard to make good contact with the ball, expect yourself to fly over the green a couple times because of this.

also we had a foursome all booked from golf now and the golf shop decided that we should take an extra "walk on player" and made us play as a 5 some, normally i wouldn't have a problem with this but there was a group of 3 in front of us and a group of 2 behind us and they decided that since we already got a "deal" on golf now that we should slow our pace of play and the pace of everyone behind us too.
