Surprise Arizona Sun City Grand Golf Course News

Any Junior Golfers out there??  Sun City Grand is calling all Junior Golfers! 

Need more golf course practice?  Want to work on your distance game?  Game Improvement Tees are being installed this week.  You are truly missing out if you haven't golfed at a Sun City Grand championship golf course located in Surprise Arizona.  The greens, fairways and hazzards that run though the community are challenging yet provide some of the most gorgeous settings in the entire Valley of the Sun.    

This week's Sun City Grand Golf Advisory Committee report provided insight as to the viability and success of several new programs.  The Junior Golf Program provides junior golfers a free round of golf after 3pm at Desert Springs Golf Course.  This encourages young golfers to participate in the sport and is excellent quality time for a grandparent or mentor. 

The committee also reported that there will be Orange Tees set up at Desert Springs Golf Course beginning Tuesday July 29, 2008.  They are called skill holes or game improvement tees because of the length of the hole and improving your golf game.  Example, the yardage on the first hole at the blue tee is 402 yards and the game improvement tee is only 266 yards.  Of course it differs from hole to hole.  This is excellent for people like me who don't golf regularly and just need time to work on golfing skill while enjoying the game.

The aeration process presently utilized is being changed.  It was not disclosed how, but it will be changed.  Aeration provides moisture, fertilizer and breathing space for Bermuda grass to grow and spread.  Aeration is also required due to the Arizona clay soil and soil compaction that occurs as lawns age or sustain heavy use from golf.  Typically the soil is aerated by removing small soil plugs or cores.  I think that the current aeration process is most evident on the 6th (Par 3), 7th (Par 5) and 8th (Par 4) holes of Desert Springs Golf Course or Granite Falls North 15th (Par 3), 16th (Par 4) since all of these holes are closest to Sunrise Bl.

These courses provide challenges and recreation to the young, not so good (like me) or avid golfer.  Golf rates are reasonable and golfers from all over the world enjoy playing on our golf courses.


 I hope you enjoy your game of golf and Mahalo 

It's all about people, being honest, having integrity and product knowledge.

Please consider a change to the Sun City Grand golf packages (60 and 90 rounds). We have always purchased the 60 round package and paid out of pocket for several rounds before and after using the 60 package. Unfortunately, as some people experience, we ran into an unexpected medical situation this year. This did not allow us to complete our 60 rounds before leaving to our other home in Colorado. Why not make the packages good for the calendar year, or not have them expire til used up. There are several other opportunities to not allow supporting residents to suffer this financial loss. i.e.. 30 round packages, pro shop credit, etc...
