Perched in the desert high above the glittering lights of the Las Vegas Strip, the city of Henderson, Nevada has become a favorite retirement hot spot for many active adults. While Sun City MacDonald Ranch is clearly a golfer’s paradise, residents don’t have to play golf to stay active within the community. Set amid the beauty of a rolling golf course, and within close proximity of all that Las Vegas has to offer, Del Webb’s Sun City MacDonald Ranch will easily meet your retirement dreams.
For players and non-players alike, the Desert Willow Golf Course is the spectacular focal point of Sun City MacDonald Ranch. Its rolling greens and sparkling water features wind throughout the community, providing outstanding backyard views and the perfect backdrop for residents as they travel about the neighborhood.
The award-winning Desert Willow Golf Course was created by famed golf architects Billy Casper and Greg Nash. Designed to be challenging as well as entertaining, this 18-hole par-60 course stretches gracefully over 3,811 yards of play. With six par-4 holes and 12 par-3 holes, the Desert Willow Golf Course is sure to challenge players, while junior tees let even the grandkids enjoy a day on the links.
Those who want to brush up between games will love that the Desert Willow Golf Course has ample practice facilities, including one of the largest driving ranges in the Henderson area. The range also offers full chipping and short game targets, and a 9,500 square foot putting range lets golfers prepare to sink any shot.
