The Sun City golf courses are a major reason people retire here.
Most of the golfers are 60 and older who play for fun and friendships. Over the years, most of us have complained about the bunkering on the courses. Many fairway bunkers have their forward lips higher than the golfer’s waist making it difficult for the average golfer here in Sun City. The greenside bunkers are not much better. I won’t go into the quality of the sand (or mud).
I recently noticed, as did my golfing buddies, that most of the greenside bunkers on the South course are much more playable because they have been redone to let a golfer putt out of them (i.e., no overhanging lips) or chip. This makes the game for most golfers in Sun City a lot easier and more fun.
I would recommend that Recreation Centers of Sun City officials consider doing the same to all greenside bunkers on all the courses. The men and women who generate a significant revenue would greatly appreciate the change.
