Slow front 9, but good experience

Sun Hills GC is a fun, challenging course, and for the end of the season, the course was in good condition for a drought-stricken year; it is a busy course, but it seemed that there was a local group scramble tournament in front of us (I was outed with a 3-some) which delayed the front 9 extremely; the front 9 took nearly three (2:45) hours, but once I made the turn (my partners only played 9-holes), there wasn’t anyone in front of me and played the back 9 in under 50 minutes; I played #10 and caught a 2-some on #11 tee box who let me play through, and I had free sailing thereafter; otherwise the round was quite fun and the course played well which continues to bring me back!

Fun, friendly round

Sun Hills GC is a course I enjoy playing several times each year because of the various challenges that exist; this round was pleasant because the wind was manageable and didn’t affect shoots too badly, but quite often the wind can play havoc in your round; upon check-in, we were pleasantly directed to the first tee to start our round, and everything ran smoothly thereafter; the course was in overall good condition despite the drought that has affected the area.

Great value for the price

Wide forgiving fairways well maintained. Confusing way on some holes to another for first time players. Mountain views were beautiful while greens could use a little maintenance. Well worth the price and experience.

Typical Sun Hills GC round

I play Sun Hills GC several times each year, and it seems the rounds tend to be fairly typical; it is a busy course for beginner and intermediate golfers which translates to slow rounds; I really enjoy the course layout, and the staff always seems to be friendly and accommodating, but you can expect a round to take about five (5) hours rather than the typical four (4) hours; knowing that, I don’t let that affect my play.

The course was dry from the lack of rainfall, constant winds, and summer heat which affected the fairways and tee boxes; however, the greens seemed to be fairly receptive despite some dry, patchy spots.

Golf & an Air Show!

Fist time at the course for all of us, and got a super rate with cart for the foursome. Greens on a few of the holes had a lot of dead spots (assume from early spring frost) but overall the rest was nice and well set up. Loved the views and then we got a free Thunderbirds Airshow to boot. Cannot complain. Will absolutely be back. Loved to have seen cart service more as it was hot, and pace was just ok but we think that had more to do with delays while folks watched the airshow overhead and next door.

Slow, fun round

Sun Hills GC is a course I play several times a year because I enjoy the challenge the course provides which often includes windy conditions; the course was in good shape despite the drought that currently exists, but the course has been managed well despite the drought conditions; we had a very slow 4-some in front of us the front nine, but the back nine opened up when the group finished their 9-hole round; I will return because the course is challenging, and the staff is friendly.

Another fun round

Sun Hills GC is always a fun experience, and this round was no different; the pace of play for the front nine was slower than typical, but once the 9-hole group in front of us stopped, the back nine was open and flowed very well; we were greeted well which is typical, and our experience was enjoyable; the course was in need of some TLC mostly because of a lack of water due to the current drought, but the course played well for the most part.

Great staff, poor condition

We've played this course several times. They always seem try have times available. The condition of the course is extremely poor at this time, bald spots on the greens which are also full of poa annual which can make putting very unpredictable, tee boxes that resemble rough. But, the staff has always been cordial.
