I played Shadow Hills (South Course) on Saturday, teeing off at about 6:45. I had never even heard of this course (it's in the Sun City retirement community), and I really wasn't expecting too much. I was very pleasantly surprised.
The condition of the course was consistently solid. Tee boxes had good coverage, as did the fairways and rough, for the most part. The bunkers had plenty of sand and were well maintained (rakes present). The greens were consistently smooth and pretty lush.
I really enjoyed the layout. There was plenty of room to drive the ball. Many water hazards loomed to collect bad shots, but decent shots stayed dry. There were some long holes and a few birdie holes. Customer service was excellent everywhere on the property. Pace of play was under four hours, with marshals keeping an eye out for problems. I'd play this course, anytime.» Close
