Willowcreek Golf Course in Sun City has one regulation length 18-hole course, the Willowcreek Course, as well as one executive length course, the Willowbrook Course. The traditional layout of the Willowcreek Course features three lakes that form water hazards that come into play on four holes. The course is relatively flat but there are some minor rolling hills that cause uneven lies. The fairways and greens are consistently in good condition on both courses and they are both considered very user-friendly. The Willowcreek Golf Course facility used to be private but it is now open to the public.

A tale of two nines…

Front nine was in great all around shape, not so much with the back nine. The greens were dicey to say the least. Very bumpy and not at all giving a true roll…

Never Again

Nobody in my group could understand why we were 5 players going out right behind 3 players.

This is how the "pro shop" decided we were going to play. (4 and 4 would have been the correct call)

We stopped at the turn for beverages only to find the foursome behind us actually waiting for us on the 10th tee. So we all felt rushed from this point on.

Here comes the ranger while were walking off the 10th green saying we were holding everyone up.

Thanks Willow Creek for a horrible experience that was created from the start by others.

Will never be back there.

Well maintained course.

One of the better maintained Sun City courses. Greens are nicely manicured. Great course to walk as well.

6+ hour rounds & goups of 6 acceptable

Title says it all. I’ve played here twice... first time I was stacked up behind several groups of 5, which I was told is standard at this course. Today, I was pinned behind a tournament with all groups having 6, with no mention during booking. Asking the course about this, they said there is no golf standard for pace of play and I shouldn’t come on weekends because they are busy. I argued that it wasn’t because of a busy day, it was because they had 6somes and the guy shrugged his shoulders.

Thursday golf

My friend and I enjoyed this course very much. It may not be your typical AZ course lots of trees no cactus. Greens in great shape as were the fairways. We will be back.

Low price only

Overall poor conditions. Greens are terrible. Ball marks everywhere. Putts do not stay on line as they bounce their way to the hole. Good tee shots are punished as the fairways are thin and do not hold a shot. I had several drives that went somewhat down the middle of the fairway and over the top of rises only to find the ball all the way to the right or left depending on the slope. The rough is cut low almost to the dirt. The ball just rolls down to the bottom. Poor etiquette by fellow golfers. I had two balls on different holes taken by other golfers who came into my fairway and played my ball because they didn't find theirs. Guys identify your ball before you play it. If you see a ball in a fairway other than the fairway you are playing……maybe it is the golfers PLAYING THAT HOLE. The only good thing was that the price was reasonable for late afternoon.

Course coming around

Greens are more consistent. Course layout is pretty good. Only issue was tee was open for 30 minutes before us and instead of sending us out they turned us in to a fivesome, made no sense. All great guys but pace could have been so much better as a 2 and a 3. Like the course, especially as a deal.
