Granite Falls Golf Club offers two courses, the North Course and the South Course. Rolling hills sprinkled with stately trees and large greens define both courses. The South Course has a challenging layout that appeals to all skill levels with four sets of tees and subtle but effective bunkering. Water comes into play on 10 holes. The golf course offers a scenic finishing hole that has two lakes, joined by a cascading waterfall with a fountain in the background. In addition to the two golf courses, Granite Falls Golf Club boasts extensive practice facilities including a short game area with a practice bunker, two putting greens, and a grass driving range with target areas.

15 hole worth the price of admission.

Entire course is well thought out. Plays well for all levels of players. The short par 4 15th is best looking short par 4 in Phoenix golf (including 17th at TPC Scottsdale}. Enjoy the course and have fun.

Course in very good shape....for July in Phoenix.

The course was well maintained and played fast; i.e., hard fast greens and fairways....again, for a Phoenix course in July.

Check it out! Nice course and good scenery!

Greens very good shape. Same for fairways except for a few places. Tee boxes a bit slanted for draws but overall very condition. Good summer rates!

Fun course

The guy in the pro shop who checked me in was great. A real friendly and nice person. This is how you are supposed to be greeted. Kudos to him.

The course looks like they are getting ready for the summer transition. Not surprising this time of year. The greens look like they have been scraped recently. They were not the round aeration holes, these were like slash marks. It didn't affect the putting, so it wasn't a problem. The fairways had a few dry and thin spots. The course was not burned out. Just a few spots here and there. It's still play-able so it wasn't a problem. The pace of play was good even though I had a two-some with no one in front of them for several holes that I kept catching that would not let me through. I guess their egos wouldn't let anyone pass them. I played late in the day so there wasn't too many people out on the course. Finished in about 3 1/2 hours.

Good Course... but

This course is usually in great shape so I do recommend it. Though I think Roger in the Pro Shop could use a lesson in customer service. Quite shocking how rude he was right from hello.

Resort Course Wannabe

This course (as well as all SCG) holds its own against most courses in Phoenix. First is the wow factor with all the water features, especially hole 18. The course was is in great condition, even coming out of over seeding. Its desert style, with wide fairways mimics most resort courses.

Only complaint - members don't fix ball marks. There were some greens that had close to 50+ pitch marks.

Take pride people, it is not the responsibility of the maintenance crew.

Nice course

The only problem I had with this course was "cart path only". Definetly coming back when carts are allowed on the course. Everything else was great

Fantastic Course

I was thrilled with the condition of the course especially this time of year. First time playing the course. The staff was great making sure I was familiar with the layout. I have played around 15 courses in the area through Golf Now and this is my new favorite. I look forward to playing there more in the future.

As always

The 4 Sun City Grande courses are always a treat to play in the summer when the general public can get on at fantastic prices. Only negative is they close the driving range on the North and South course around 10:30 regularly to pick it. Have heard numerous people complain about this scheduling problem. But tee boxes, fairways and greens are always awesome.
