The Sun City South Golf Course is normally a private club but during the summer months, public play is allowed. The course has a traditional layout with four sets of teeboxes for a variety of different golfing options, which allow golfers to work on a range of different handicaps. The golf course has a fair share of challenges with several sand bunkers and plenty of trees scattered throughout. There are also out-of-bounds stakes providing more difficulty. Water hazards come into play on some holes as well. The Sun City South Golf Course facility has a putting green and chipping area for golfers to use in addition to the course.

Better to miss the fairway…

The fall overseeding rye grass is dying out leaving lots of bare spots in the fairways. Green and tees are in great shape. Can’t say bad or good about the sand traps because I was lucky enough to avoid them this round…..

Would give 5 stars but...

It's apparent that most courses have decided Covid is over, with rakes and ball washers back on course and sharing carts again.
I wish sun city courses would likewise include the cart with the Hot Deal payment like 99% of all other local courses.

The average Sun City course.

Nice course very forgiving, which is why I chose it for my first course to return to after 2 years. Played a little later in the day so for those of you that don’t know the Arizona sun tends to dry the greens out a bit in the later hours.

Very playable.

Very playable and the pace was excellent. About 6500 yds from the blue, and you get close to 7000 yds from the tips.
