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.

Stop sending out groups of 5

Our group was made into a group of 5 as was the two groups ahead of us. When we got to the second hole there was FOUR groups waiting on the tee. No rangers on the course to keep things moving. Eventually, we filtered through and got moving. Ran into slow down on the back 9 too. This is a short and fairly easy course. It shouldn't take nearly 5 hours to play. I cannot recommend this course until this policy is changed.

If you are a younger player do not go.

From the moment I walked in there was an environment of distain for younger players. I grouped up with another younger group and they mentioned the same thing. Players on the course where kind but staff seemed like they didn’t want younger players on the course. They allowed a group of 8 in front of us and slowed play to a grinding stop on every hole. Over all course was nice and green. Greens are fast and very flat.

Had a good round.

First time playing here. Had a good time. Need to watch out for a few fairways which have water going across them. Greens ran a bit fast, but putted fairly true.

Insufficient carts

The course only had 10 available golf carts to rent and all of them were taken. This is not acceptable.

Course is in great shape....

but it could use a few more power carts. Having only 10 carts available for rental just seems pathetic. Most courses throughout the country look at cart rental sales as an essential revenue stream. I understand a lot of Sun City residents own there own carts but adding 3 to 5 carts would eliminate delayed reserved tee times due to lack of carts.....

Course is in good shape

The course is in good condition from tee to green. The grass is doing well after the overseed. The greens are rolling at a nice pace and are nice and smooth. It was cart path only, but as much as I hate cart path only I walked anyway so it didn’t matter. Weather could not have been better, low 70s, sunny and calm wind. Today was why we live in Arizona.

Need to rethink cart path only...

The course is in great shape post overseed, but the strict cart path only rules are draconian and slow up play horribly. The rough was not over seeded so let carts drive on it.....

Excellent Greens

Course is in great shape but the greens were in perfect shape(sand traps were not as fluffy as they usually are). Had to wait on threesome for the first nine holes but they let us play through on second nine which sped up our play. Three and a half hour round which could have been three if they would have let us play through earlier in the round. Weather was great in the 80’s throughout our round.

Nic city course, friendly people - hopefully honest too as I lost my Voice Caddy range finder and nobody turned it in, pretty disappointed as most golfers I thought were pretty honest about those things.
