Viewpoint features both an 18-hole championship and a 9-hole executive course that will satisfy players of all abilities. The par 71 championship course provides a fair test without the extremes of desert target golf. Relax and enjoy the tree-lined fairways and strategic bunkering. The sounds of rippling streams or cascading waterfalls will remind you why we play this game. If you’re a beginning player or working on your short game, you’ll love our 9-hole executive course. This is a wonderful place to take the youngsters or to enjoy a quick nine when time is short. Our facilities include Fat Willy’s Clubhouse Pub & Grill, with spacious banquet rooms and a quaint little bar and grill that will surely quench your thirst or appetite before, during or after your round on the links. Our settings are ideal for most types of group functions. The Terrace Green Event Center with its elegant decor and stunning scenery can be the perfect setting for any group event including weddings, receptions, golf outings, and social gatherings.

Wednesday, November 3, 2021 Sun City CC 8:30 AM $59.00. Click here to get the course website.

Despite the typical Arizona climate, Sun City Country Club is not a typical desert-style course. Sun City Country Club is lined with large shade trees, a classic layout forcing accurate shots and good iron play. Our 18 hole course is as challenging as it is enjoyable. With four sets of tees, play at Sun City Country Club spans between 5,145 and 6,275 yards, making it a treat for players of all skill and experience levels. SCCC is a par 72 golf course, and the variety and challenges on these grounds have made it a long-time Arizona golf favorite! Home to the 2014 & 2015 Arizona Women’s Open, we know that you will enjoy a club that has withstood the test of time.

This will be a memorable Championship for you and the VGA.  Please note there will be no local VGA event on Saturday, Nov 6th, 2021. So grab your favorite golfing partners and make a week or weekend of it.

2021 VGA 4 ball foursome competition. Played March 3rd, 2021

At the Aguila Golf course on March 3rd, 2021, we played a 4 man team game with the 1st place team pictured below. The teams were paired by choosing an A, B, C, D player based on their current golf handicap index. The top 3 scores for each hole were used to determine the team’s handicapped score for that hole. Scores were totaled for 18 holes to determine the team’s total score. Used this format to replace the usual 4-ball contest. Great fun for all involved.
