Rating 69.1

The 18-hole West Course at Sun City Lakes Golf Club is a private course with a traditional layout. The course is quite open and features a few interesting challenges. It is relatively flat, making it nice to walk although carts are available. More advanced players that mostly hit straight balls may not find the course challenging enough, but it is quite enjoyable for beginners and intermediate players. Notable holes on the course are the 3rd, 9th, and 18th since they can be played a few different ways. The Lakes West Golf Course facility, in addition to the course, has practice facilities including a putting green, chipping area, and driving range.

Slow golfers

Too many slow players. We waited on every hole and every shot. We were walking and we were still faster than the groups with carts in front of us. After awhile it just got boring waiting for them to clear. Completely killed the day. No fun at all. I just wanted it to be over. The group behind us hit into us even though they could see us waiting on the group ahead. No ranger to help keep pace.

One of the better Sun City courses…

It might just be me butI like this course most of all the courses operated by the Sun City Recreational Dept. Tees, fairways, greens and traps all in great playing condition. Pace of play for this time of year was 4 hours whichI thought was spot on….

Cart path only

The course recently came out of overseed and it was cart path only. I hate cart path only so I walked. The good thing is it's an easy course to walk and I prefer to walk when the weather is nice and not too hot. The grass is in good shape and greens are rolling well. Fun course to play.

Good Course

We were there when many of the Sun City courses were closed for reseeding, so the course was crowded and the pace fairly slow. The condition, however, was very good and we enjoyed playing.

great walking course

My wife and I walked the course and enjoyed about everything about it except the goose poop and the water hazards which really require a lot of course knowledge to avoid.

Lost a customer over $6.50

Normally, I would give this course a good review. The condition of the course is good. Course layout is good. Nice course to play.

My poor review is for the customer service. I used golf now to pay for my round and secure a tee time. So that wasn’t a problem. The problem is I forgot my wallet and was unable to pay for a cart. I know that’s my fault. However, since I obviously had a tee time and prepaid, I think the clerk behind the counter could have taken the $6.50 loss and let me use a cart. Instead he offered a free push cart. The problem there is that it’s been raining on and off today. I didn’t feel like walking 18 all wet. He could have been cooler about the cart. That’s all I’m saying.

No Carts

Ended up canceling once we arrived. Come to find out course only has 10 carts on hand at any given time. How does an 18 hole course only have 10 carts? Better question why is this course even open.

Definitely will never look to play here ever again.

Also I wasn’t the only 4 some that canceled there tee time. The 15 minutes I was there I witnessed 5 other groups cancel as well.

Hard greens

We had 2 wait a half hour for a card but employee was nice enough to not charge us! Course overall was not in bad shape but greens were very hard and you had to come up short to keep the ball on the green.

I would return

My second time playing this course. It's moderately challenging. what really made it more difficult today was the fact that the greens were cut short and recently sanded- nothing would hold, balls would roll through them. It was also interesting that on the front nine none of the stream beds had water in them, but on the back nine they all did. Fortunately for me, today they had carts available at the incredible rate of $6!
