Sun City Summerlin Golf
Sun City Summerlin is home to three separate 18 hole golf courses, all owned and managed by the Sun City community. Highland Falls, a par 72, 6,512 yard course, is at the highest elevation, offering panoramic views of the Las Vegas Strip. Palm Valley, a par 72, 6,849 yards, is Sun City’s longest course and definitely the toughest. Eagle Crest, a par 60, 4,067 yard course, is Sun City’s executive course built into the side of the mountain – short, but extremely challenging. Eagle Crest has won a couple of “Vegas Golfer Fairway Awards” for best executive course in the Valley.
All three courses were designed and built by Billy Casper and Greg Nash, and each offers great dining options. The Vista Grille at Palm Valley is designed for more casual dining. The Summit at Eagle Crest offers unsurpassed views and is ideal for formal banquets. The Tavern at the Falls course enjoys spectacular waterfall views.
