The 18-hole West Course at Sun City Lakes Golf Club is a private course with a traditional layout. The course is quite open and features a few interesting challenges. It is relatively flat, making it nice to walk although carts are available. More advanced players that mostly hit straight balls may not find the course challenging enough, but it is quite enjoyable for beginners and intermediate players. Notable holes on the course are the 3rd, 9th, and 18th since they can be played a few different ways. The Lakes West Golf Course facility, in addition to the course, has practice facilities including a putting green, chipping area, and driving range.

The pace of play was excellent. The staff friendly witness was exceptional. The course is in good condition on the fairways, the greens, and the tee boxes.

The rough and around the greens are bare in spots. The bunkers overall are above average, but nothing exceptional.

Enjoyed playing with friendly nice couple from North Dakota, fun fun fun, lots of fun playing the game. This course fairly easy, fairways were maintained and bunker too. We were putting good and making par and I made two birdies too. I booked this Tee time because it was showing a green fee of $11.99 only. But this rate is without cart I did't even noticed. I can't walk so I rented a cart separately!!!!

Fives ones allowed is my only complaint. This is a course for the 65 and older crowd. It is a good course for senior ladies.

Love the course but will never go back. Golf is long enough playing foursomes , Watching fivesomes all day with groups that walk so slow they look like they are walking backwards, waiting 10 minutes at each tee box makes for an extremely long round of golf. I’d rather not play than suffer through that again. Shame on any course that allows 5 players

nice course, and I've played there several times. Great people I've been paired with, but the rate of play was strange. Teams of 2 then 4 then 2 then 4, seemed odd. When its the busy High Season, it would be better to tighten up the flow.

Good place to play. Greens a bit tricky as many slopes and pin placements were tough. Played with regular members but it was a five some whic is apparently normal. Pace of p,at good. Would return.

Shortest of the Sun City regulation courses. Fairly wide open, plays to 6000 yards from the tips, pesky little stream that runs thru a good portion of both nines. Greens were on the smaller side but were inimpecccable condition ( if possible stay below the hole). Pace of play seemed a bit slow but we did finish in 4 hours. Did not have to endure the five some thing that one runs into at some of the other Sun City courses. For non- Sun City residents you’ll need GPS to get there. Intermediate golfers should enjoy playing here.....

The greens and fairways are in very good shape but the rough is not watered and the grass is dormant. It hard to hit consistently from the rough.
