About

Holes 18
Type Semi-Private/Resort
Style Desert/Executive
Par 66
Length 4353 yards
Slope 102
Rating 62.0

The course at the Sunbird Golf Resort is a desert-style course that offers three sets of tee boxes to accommodate most skill levels. This executive length golf course has a country club-type atmosphere and offers a good round of golf. The greens are medium sized with some that are multi-tiered and narrow fairways. Bunkers and trees are also present on the course, adding some challenge since they can greatly affect shots. Water hazards also come into play on a few holes. In addition to the executive course at Sunbird Golf Resort, the facility also offers a putting area and chipping green as well as a fully stocked pro shop.

Fun and fast

Overall, it was a great time. The course played fast (2:20), and even faster after we pass d some folks on the back nine. Good practice for target golf and course management. Not overly difficult, but a fun afternoon. The greens could be better kept, but were fairly easy to read.

Great little gem

great service, very friendly people, from the gate guard to the young lady cleaning the windows. I gave the course a 4 because the greens were not mowed so the ball did not roll thru and very slow. otherwise the course is in excellent shape.

Always fun....

This course is in decent shape and is always fun. Not a long course but has enough challenging holes to keep me interested.

Fun track!

Good tuneup! If those chumps on tv are hitting 8 irons into a par 5, why shouldn’t we. Several shirt tricky par 4s. Loved it. I almost never play executive courses!

Finally gottts(Har) 2play Sunbird !

Getting checked in went Well W/Christina warmly welcoming Me after several attempts 2gettts to Sunbird GC. The Gentleman that gave US(another 2some I played 9 holes with) instructions on the course was clear N friendly.
The course itself has a Nice layout W/a real variety of holes(for an Executive)including a par 5 that really needs 2B thoughtfully negotiated, water on BOTH SIDES of an approach shot. Greens rolled well, fairways have grown in lush & the sand INTHE bunkering is very acceptable. Tee boxes AND the range appeared Shaggy but overall I Enjoyed the day at Sunbird GC so THANKS Folks -B Well.

Nice Course, Too Wet

We enjoy playing this course. Last time I played I told myself I'd wait a month to play again as the course was far too wet. Unfortunately, nothing has changed. We walked and that was a mistake as our carts, shoes, etc. were full of mud after just a few holes. The rye grass should be established by now so have no idea why it is getting watered so much, only one in the valley that I've played that's like this. We asked a groundskeeper what this is so and he said that's just what the head guys wants to do. Staff always great. We might try again next year.
