Trail Ridge Golf Course offers a good game on a truly desert landscape. Built on mostly flat terrain, the course can be walked but there are some holes that are quite hilly. Ponds situated throughout the golf course create water hazards that come into play on six holes. There are some elevated tees and greens as well as strategically placed sand bunkers to add further challenges. Four sets of tee boxes ensure that golfers of all skill levels and abilities will enjoy the course. The Trail Ridge Golf Course facility also features practice facilities including a putting green and chipping area and there is also a fully stocked pro shop.

Pace of play shameful

Teed off at 1am it was 101 outside playing as a single a twosome in their own carts out in front of me never asked me to play though after 3 hours and 12 holes i gave up skipped holes and finished round. Gentlemen inside nice to start out however stated I couldnt tee off and would need to be called to the tee nothing about this course makes sense. This is the typical sun city cringeworthy experience people who have no golf ettiquite dont respect anyone who plays their golf course. Never ever ever go back.

Excellent option for something other than a desert course

Loved the layout. Plenty of challenge to finding the correct landing target off the tee, and greens offer subtle breaks but fair challenge.

Very friendly staff, with a modest 'luncheonette' style option for eating. Beer is available for purchase. Easy access from the 303.

Will be playing here regularly through the summer.

course was in good shape. Pin placements were difficult, greens were slow, sand traps have no sand in them making them very hard to play. overall average course.

Bunkers

Bunkers were in terrible condition, hard as the cart path. They looked like they had been raked, sand needs to be added. So lesson learned, stay out of the bunkers.

Also appears there is a drainage problem or irrigation lines were leaking.

Great course- great value!

I played this course for the first time as part of a foursome. Pace of play was good- we finished right at 4 hours. The course has a number of challenging holes but overall would play fairly had not the wind been blowing. Although only visiting this area for a short time, I will likely play this course again, and would recommend it to anyone. One additional note- the address listed on Golfnow is for Hillcrest, so check the correct address before driving to it.

Sun City West's Best

Course was pretty empty for our scheduled 1 pm tee time so we were able to tee off 15 minutes early. Greens had been punched week before and the course had been open for maybe 5 days but the greens still ran a little slower than normal. We played in less than 3 1/2 hours as a twosome. Have played the course‚Äč multiple times and enjoy the layout. Generous fairways and straightforward greens make it a forgiving course for good scoring.

With ease

Staff person was very accommodating, and let me know who was going to be in my group. Asked me if I needed to know anything about the course, and having played it before needed nothing. Clean facilities out on the course, and well kept up.

Hidden Trouble

Course had some challenging holes, especially from non visible trouble from the tee box. It would be helpful to have pictures of the holes on the scorecards or on the yardage markers on the tee box. Having a GPS with a picture of the hole is a must here. Greens were a little slow due to sand on them. It was a fun course to play! I would definitely play it again.

Incorrect information in your system

My experience was not good at all, in your system the Map-it directions are incorrect it took me to a golf course totally in another area (Hillcrest Golf Course ) and from there I was scrambling trying to find the golf course I actually booked with you guys (GolfNow) .. being very frustrated I had to try and find on my own cell phone and driving around like a crazy man finally made to the proper gold course LATE but they did manage to put me on

So as you can tell by going through all that I think I will have to call the golf course from now on to make sure I'm going to the same golf course I booked with you guys ... very frustrating and bad experience on that day!!

I hope you can correct that problem so it doesn't happen to anyone else

Beautiful course!

Nice golf course right in the middle of housing, great scenery with the cactus and desert surrounding. Course is well laid out, not too hard and not too easy. Friendly staff and the course Marshall was very nice to chat with every so often. Had a foursome of men behind us who played from the ladies tees who pushed us a bit and that was a little annoying as we were hot on the heels of the group in front of us but other than that it was a very pleasant experience.

Course layout is poor

Course is in pretty good shape and the employees are very friendly. The course layout is lame. Pretty brown desert style off all fairways. Every hole is lined with houses. I can deal with those concerns, what makes this course lame to play is how poorly it was designed. Fairways where the landing area narrows to 10 yards past 200 yards, trees in odd locations blocking approach shots and greens that slope towards hazards. Either pay $20 less and play regular sun city courses or pay $20 more and play sun city grand courses.

A good challenge I

I like the course layout. Very challenging at times. I dislike the roughs, too dry and unmanageable, however the round was very enjoyable. Also, the greens seem to be rather firmer than usual.
