Located just south of Grand Avenue in Sun City, Sun City North Golf Course's trademarks are the doglegs and large trees that are present throughout the course. It has many other challenges to offer including plush, elevated greens and numerous sand bunkers. Placid ponds also create water hazards that come into play on two holes. The well-maintained course is relatively flat with plenty of shade, making it enjoyable to walk. The Sun City North Golf Course facility has several amenities including a putting green and chipping area. There is also a fully stocked pro shop and full service grill and deli.

Slow. Groups of 5

Pace was slow. After the first couple of holes we got backed up with 3 groups on the tee. No Rangers to keep pace. We moved at a crawl after that. This course and all Sun City courses try to book for groups of 5 which just slows down play for everyone else. If you are booking on golf now for a tee time be aware that any time you see an opening that is not 1-4, you are filling in for a 5 some. Listings for 1,2 and 3 are fill out for 5 people for the round. Subtract one person and that is what is really available for a four-some.

Cold and windy

Since it was cold and windy we had a fairly open course for our foursome as hardly anyone else was as crazy as us. We played in under 4 hours. Just a little over 3 and a half, actually. We were walking and playing in harsh weather conditions so there is no excuse for slow play here. It had rained the night before so it was a little damp in areas, but seemed to have drained nicely as there was no standing water. The wind was brutal and cold, but we played through. The greens putted fairly well, but some of the pin placements were just evil. They were on slopes or on the edge of a break. I could just hear the greenskeeper cackling and tenting his fingers like Mr. Burns in a Simpson Halloween episode. Okay. Maybe that last part was the cold effecting my brain. We had fun even in the less than ideal weather conditions. We will be back.

Great Value and Conditions

Really enjoyed my afternoon at Sun City North. Fairways were very lush and the greens were true. For the price my experience was unbeatable. I recommend sun city north to anyone looking for an affordable round.

Nice course if price included cart

Can't help but feel Rec Centers of Sun City are ruining reputation of their courses by charging above and beyond the golfnow hot deal price, simply to gouge golfers for more money. They'll make you ride with someone you don't know (guess covid is over) but they won't go back to pricing before covid (cart included). Twosome now pays for two tee times plus an amount equal to another tee time for a shared cart. Only courses in town doing this.

Improved From Last Year

Course was much greener and the greens in great shape. Last year rough was dry and hardpan but this year you can play off grass. Greens were smooth and very receptive. Played in 3:45 walking. This is a nice layout and decent test of golf. Staff are always friendly.

Confusing start

The course is in good condition from tees to greens. (If more golfers could fix their ball marks, that would be great)
The problems began when the course ran out of carts so tee times got all messed up. Groups were waiting well past their tee times waiting for a cart. We were walking so it did not affect our tee time. The Pro shop had us start off on 10 while another group for the same time started on 1 with carts. Some groups, for some unknown reason thought that they were playing the same 9 twice and did not cross over to the other 9. This happened with the group on our back 9 (which was the front 9 normally) They played the same front 9 along with the group ahead of them instead of crossing over to the back 9. This backed up the front 9 (our back 9) Not sure why if your playing 18 that you would want to play the same 9 twice when the course was fully open. I guess they thought since there was two duplicate tee time that they were supposed to play the same half the course while the other tee time played the other 9 twice.
I've noticed that other Sun City courses are doing the two groups per tee time and having one group start on 1 and the other on 10. This just causes more confusion at the turn. If you don't enforce golfers to keep pace, then this practice will just clog things up later. I'm sure that groups that started earlier that day don't like have a group suddenly appear in front of them on 10 either. Or start a new group on 1 when you started on 10 and now have to wait on them. Confused yet? You are not alone.
