Briarwood Country Club at Sun City West
The golf course at Briarwood Country Club provides stunning views of the surrounding mountains and a peaceful atmosphere. All skill levels and abilities can enjoy this course. The design features relatively open fairways that are lined with trees and water hazards that come into play on several holes. There are also a few sand bunkers cleverly situated throughout. The course is a nice walk, which is advantageous since any golf carts on the course are owned by members not the club. Briarwood Country Club has practice facilities for golfers to use as well including a putting green and chipping area.

Played an amateur sanctioned event.
Practice facility was good. However, due to limited space, special low compression balls are used on the range
to mitigate distance. Range is for warming up only.
The course is all Bermuda grass which is kept in very good shape. Fairways are wide open, however several holes
require some layup thought as there is a small creek that gerrymanders throughout the course.
Bunkers were to my liking. The greens varied in shape quite a bit, with some undulation on each one. The surface was
very good to putt on however, some of the greens “ hour glass” shapes made for strange pin positions.
All things considered it is a good track for a beginner or average golfer.
Clubhouse seemed nice ( didn’t have time to fully explore it) and the food was very good value with friendly staff.
If i had to change one thing - i would utilize electric carts.
