The Desert Willow Clubhouse is home to an extensive line-up of amenities designed to encourage an exciting social life and a healthy lifestyle. 

With magnificent views of the surrounding mountains and the valley below, Sun City MacDonald Ranch is an affordable community rich in scenic beauty. This fabulous Del Webb development is smaller and more intimate than some of the other local 55+ communities, yet it is loaded with resort-style amenities, including an 18-hole golf course and a spacious clubhouse.


Sun City MacDonald Ranch was the second Del Webb 55+ community built in the Las Vegas area. Its prime location in the city of Henderson puts the community within 30 minutes of Las Vegas and only 30 miles west of the many outdoor recreations found at Lake Mead. Yet, the impressive line-up of on-site amenities lets residents stay active without ever leaving the development.


Amenities at Sun City MacDonald Ranch are largely centered around the Desert Willow Clubhouse. This 36,000 square-foot facility provides numerous amenities in a luxurious setting. The well-equipped fitness center is complete with a separate aerobics and dance studio. Residents can easily gather in social areas throughout the clubhouse, including game rooms for cards or billiards, and the ballroom is a great location for many different events.

In addition to casual socializing, the clubhouse has the facilities to support many hobbies. The various studios include a sewing and quilting room, a ceramics room, and a multipurpose arts and crafts room. Several meeting rooms are also available to host the community’s special interest clubs, such as the Better Life Mixed Chorus, the Buddy Network, the Ceramic Crafters, ParTee Girls Golf, and the RV’ers.

Outside of the clubhouse, Sun City MacDonald Ranch’s lovely grounds are dotted with recreational activities. There are three lighted tennis courts, four bocce courts, horseshoe pits, and an outdoor lap pool and spa. There are also over nine miles of walking and biking trails winding throughout the community.


The Desert Willow Golf Club features a community-owned 18-hole golf course spreading across 3,800 yards from its longest tees. This executive golf course was designed by Billy Casper and Greg Nash to provide challenging play and spectacular views of the Las Vegas Valley below. The golf course itself has also become a lovely backdrop for many course-adjacent homes.


Built between 1996 and 2001, the community includes 2,131 single-family homes and 382 attached duplex villas. When they were originally constructed, homes were available in 18 different floor plans which ranged from 1,000 to over 2,200 square feet. This diversity helps homebuyers find many options when looking for available resale homes.

Featuring a luxurious amenity center, a challenging golf course, and affordable homes, Sun City MacDonald Ranch appeals to many active adults who choose to live amid the mountains and valleys of Southern Nevada.
