Sun City West was started in 1978 with variety in mind.  To avoid “cookie-cutter” look Del Webb made sure that no two identical houses were built side by side.  There were choices of 3 different elevations offered. Knowing that many mid-westerners wanted grass lawn, Del Webb offered certain models in areas with park-like expanses of grass.  Others are on tree lined streets. Golf is one of the main attractions of this community.  It boasts 7 golf courses and a private Country Club, Briarwood.  The builder, Del Webb, wanted you to have the option of playing a different course every day! There are four different recreational centers: R.H. Johnson   Kuentz   Beardsley   Palm Ridge The R.H. Johnson center has an Olympic-size outdoor pool and spa.  The workout facility was completely redone ...

Corte Bella Country Club Sun City West Arizona Arizona summers can be hot, very hot. Some describe the weather as hot as an oven. Most people retreat indoors at 11am peeking outside at 5pm.At noontime yesterday my husband and I enjoyed delightful salads at the Anacapa Restaurant in Corte Bella Country Club in Sun City West..The freeway daises’ at the restaurant entrance were hearty and thriving. After our leisurely lunch we retreated to the heat of my black car. My black Mercedes registered 120 degrees when we first jumped in, cooling to 105 after a few minutes. Leaving the main gate we saw them on the course - golfers and many of them! Yes, the hot weather does not deter diehard golfers.  Golf in 105 degree weather, Yes; only in Arizona! If you are thinking of an Arizona retirement com...

Located at the Grandview Golf Course in Sun City West the Crooked Putter Restaurant is a favorite place for the locals to eat. It is a great place for a quick breakfast or a nice sit down lunch with friends. The Crooked Putter Restaurant is located at one of the entrances of Sun City West so most of the population pass it all the time and many frequent it just as often. It is the place to sit and enjoy a meal or a beer with friends after a round of golf or just stop in for a cup of coffee. The Crooked Putter's menu offer a diverse selection of breakfast and lunch items. The everyday specials offer a quick lunch meal so you can get out on the Grandview Golf Course for a quick 9 or go up the street to Johnson Lanes for a couple of games of pool or bowling. Whether you are just stopping by...

This is going to be short and sweet, so many people come to Arizona to play golf that we probably have more golf courses than schools. At least in Sun City West we do. Community golf courses "7" schools "0". Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that Sun City West is an Active Adult, 55+ community. So, no schools and for the most part no school tax. Yes there are some annexed areas that do have school tax but for the majority of homes it is a great big NO! Golfing, however, is a great big YES!!! Besides the 7 courses operated by the Recreation Centers there are two more, Hillcrest Golf Club, a public course and Briarwood Country Club at Sun City West, a private course. Hillcrest is a 5 time host to the Senior PGA Tour and a 2 time host to the LPGA tour, not bad credentials. Sun City west is the ...

Bowling is a big deal all over the country and Sun City West Arizona is no exception. At Johnson Lanes in Sun City West seniors take their bowling very, very seriously. Johnson Lanes offers 30 finely calibrated lanes, state-of-the-art pin-setting and automatic scoring, and a pro shop. There is the 300 wall where pictures of the many bowlers who have rolled a 300 are posted. There is the PBA (Professional Bowlers Association) Senior West Region event played here. There is also fun times that the residents spend with their children and grandchildren. Today, my real estate office started our summer (ahem) league, when a group of us get together to have fun, a little friendly competition and to blow off some steam. Some of our bowlers are quite good, others are there just for the camaraderi...

Sun City West Arizona is a community in the Northwest Valley of  Metro Phoenix. they're a little over 17,000 homes in Sun City West Arizona and these make up what is thought to be one of the top active adult communities in the United States. Most of the people who live here are 55+ and a good majority of them are retired. This in no way means that these people are old or inactive. There is so much to do within the community that it is said  "That if you're bored it is only because you have stayed inside and are not using the facilities". With four recreation centers, multiple golf courses, over 100 different clubs, a professional class bowling alley, and industrial quality woodworking shop and too many other facilities just a mention here, there are always things to do.
