Deer Valley Golf Course offers a challenging game that will test golfers of all skill levels. The course has a beautiful rolling terrain with over 800 palm trees sprinkled throughout, providing a nice landscape but they can also affect shots since they border nearly all of the greens on the golf course. There are also sand bunkers that guard some of the greens, which are large, undulating, and oftentimes difficult to read. In addition, five of the greens are double-tiered. Ten ponds are situated on the course, coming into play on five holes. There are also some dogleg fairways to add to the difficulty at Deer Valley.

Day at the beach

Classic Sun City course in good condition. The brilliant white sand bunkers are so nice you almost don't mind when you get in them. A bit short from the white tees, blues are a good challenge.

Great experience

Great facilities

Good value

Course is in great shape after maintenance.

Only issue was the group behind us kept hitting into us. Given that the round was under 4 hours, this behavior was inexcusable. Wish they had a Marshall on the course

Would recommend

It was pouring rain everywhere, monsoons in Phoenix, but Sun City lives up to its name, 90 and a breeze. A good challenge and enjoyable day !

Thankx,

Fun track

This is a really great course to play in the summer while it's only 15 bucks for non residents. The pro shop can sometimes be unwelcoming to outsiders and especially younger people but you are on,y there long enough to pay and get a cart key. The course is a fun layout with a combination of long and short holes. Greens are a little slow usually but the course is in good shape for August. If you hit it well here you can score well. The 18th is a great finishing hole especially with a back hole location. Give it a try during the summer when it's cheap and empty and you will be glad you did!

Excellant condition

I rated the course condition as good, but for time of year I would say it is excellent. The fairways are in very good condition, and the greens putt true even if they would be rated a little slow, It was a fun day .

The course was in nice condition. We were especially pleased with the bunkers...real sand, not the miserable hard pan that most courses have that do a number on your clubs.

Very nice course

Identical facilities to all SCW golf courses so if you know one facility, you are right at home. Water can be a player on several holes but only if you are hitting bad shots. Sand traps are appropriately placed to make you think about your shots. Overall excellent experience and the staff is as friendly as can be found anywhere. 78 degrees with clear skies which has been the case here for the last three months. Perfect winter golf.

Short, but a great value

I would suggest playing the back tees here. We played it with some friends yesterday, and the white tees resulted in a multitude of very short iron shots into quite large greens. While this resulted in a fine score and ego-boost, we shall play the back tees next time (and there will be one of those soon, guaranteed!). The course could do themselves quite a favor and upgrade the clubhouse area, unless you like hot dogs & light beer as about your only options after the round.

especially great for an afternoon round

the course was in great shape, the pace of play was excellent, and the staff were very friendly. An added bonus for December is that in the last 2 holes do not face west.
