Confusing, illogical course layout/ routing

I have played Sunset Ridge many times over the years though, admittedly it has been 2 or 3 years since I last visited. That said, the course layout has not improved. Many holes overlap with the previous and/ or next hole necessitating backtracking to the next tee box. There are multitudinous trails that never seem to be the one you want. There are no signs that direct you to the next tee. It is a shame because the course was in great shape aside from some washed out areas of cart path and rough teeing areas. The pace of play was great; almost no wait anywhere. Green were decent and fairways were very good.

If the paths were cleaned up, tee boxes groomed, and some signage directing you from hole to hole installed, I would be a much more frequent visitor! I really do like the course!

Tough greens

Always like playing this course. Nice layout, with a few tough holes. Greens are challenging, fast and undulating. Only real complaint are the cart paths, ruts and large stones.

Front of Clubhouse looks closed, overgrown with weeds, Tee boxes were bad, bare patches, just normal grass like in your yard, carts were slower than usual. Wouldn't have paid more than $30 for a round here.

A step in the right direction

This course is suffered through several different changes in ownership, with many previous owners neglecting the course. The new owners have done a good job with correcting the missteps that prior owners had taken which brought the course down a notch. I play this course frequently and enjoy the course itself, but there is a serious issue with the pace of play. Nearly every time I have played the course, there is a group playing slow and holding up everyone behind them. The course does not have starters or Marshalls, but needs them desparately to help speed up the pace of play.

Some of the earlier employees were not so friendly and were telling us we had to be off the course at a certain time, because they didn't want to stay late, but only after we had already paid for our round.

I also find it dishonest that the course charges more for walk-ins than they do for those who book a tee time. It's easy enough to book a tee time from the parking lot but it's a hassle that doesn't exist at any other golf course I've played.

great course scenic

Played Sunset today and it was in perfect condition. It had rained earlier and had been raining a lot in the past week, with some course too wet to play enjoyably. But not Sunset. The fairways were in great condition and running pretty good. The greens were in perfect shape and as usual very fast. And thankfully the weather cooperated. And the PGA Professional who waited on me (sorry bad on remembering names) was fantastic and very friendly. Overall, playing Sunset today was an extremely satisfying experience and I will definitely be back when possible.

Great outing, except for the pace of play

First time playing this course. I was very impressed by the conditions of the fairways and greens. Everything was in great condition, mowed and groomed immaculately. Lots of players out today as the weather was great. I don't mind playing a busy course as long as everyone keeps the game moving but today we got stuck behind a foursome of older guys who actually drove back one time while we were waiting to hit up to the green and told us there was three foursomes ahead of them playing a tournament so nobody was going anywhere fast. Well, it turned out that they were the problem as there was eventually nobody ahead of them because they were so slow. Instead of playing ready golf, they were watching each other's every shot and the putting they did was ridiculous. It took them 15 minutes on average to clear a green. I love this course but wouldn't come back to play here again if I got stuck behind a bunch like these guys. They ruined the day for several players behind us. It took almost 5 hours to complete 18 holes. Ridiculous.
