Sun Lakes Country Club Reviews
- Andres A.|June 12, 2019This community is “One of a Kind”! We have been visiting family here since 2008. When I retired we checked out several other retirement communities and none compared to Sun Lakes Country Club! We moved here in October 2017 and we love ❤️ 💕 💗 the Community!
- Ismael M.|June 12, 2019We describe Sun Lakes to our friends as a "Cruise Ship" on land. There are well over 80 clubs to catch the interest of about any activity you can think of. The grounds are well maintained and the CC&R's make sure that the individual homes are also kept in good order. The restaurant is outstanding and our lounge serves the best drinks. I happen to be a member of the Executive Course Men's golf club, the Chorale, and I am active in my Districts activities.
I have made many friends quickly in the two short years that we have lived here.
I recommend our community wholeheartedly!
- M J.|June 12, 2019We have lived here for more than ten years. It's a fabulous retirement community that is gated, shows pride of ownership, the selection of homes and floor plans will fit anyone's taste and prices are remarkably low with amenities that rival any other community. The association monthly fee is amazing low, considering all that is included, i.e. 3 clubhouses, indoor and outdoor pools, tennis, bocce ball, two golf courses, a snack shop, excellent restaurant, ballroom, lounge, live entertainment, countless clubs and game opportunities, hobbies and so much more. The residents are friendly, and many have lived here for over 25 years. Come to Sun Lakes and see how friendly we are!
- Bruce B.|June 11, 2019Sun Lakes Country Club, Banning California has met all my expectations for 55 and over community. It has ongoing participative organizations and events that you want to go to and be a part of. The facilities are well maintained and include two restaurants, three pools, one of which is indoors, tennis courts, bocce ball courts, pickleball courts, libraries, and active 8 ball pool league and pool room and so much more. Moving to Sun Lakes Country Club was the best decision of Our Lives.
- BEVERLY S.|June 11, 2019Moved here 10 years ago as a renter and loved it so much I decided to buy. Here's why.
1. Beautiful grounds!! A mix of desert landscape and big, gorgeous trees with lakes and complementary features. Relaxing!!
2. TWO amazing golf courses!! A championship course with wide fairways and some really tough greens.
3. An 18-hole Executive course that does not require you to be a long hitter - just accurate!!
4. 3 Clubhouses with a gym at each (FREE to residents!) with state-of-the-art equipment.
5. 2 outdoor pools and one indoor pool plus a dry sauna and hot tub.
6. A full service restaurant, with an amazing chef(!!) plus a full bar and lounge with a live band on the weekends.
7. Clubs galore!! From cards to majong, golf to bocce ball, yoga to dance, meditation to photography, there's something for everyone!
8. Organized trips to places and events like baseball games, plays, etc. Traffic in SoCal can be a challenge, but with these organized trips, you can still attend all the cool stuff in LA without having to drive!!
9. Lots of retail and restaurants nearby. Kohls, Panera, Wal-Mart, Home Depot, plus Albertsons, Aldi and Stater Bros!!
10. Last but not least....the people who live here!!!! Sun Lakes is a community of people who care and take care of each other as well as our community! If you want to be part of a close knit village, you need to be here.
- Margaret M.|June 11, 2019I have lived in this lovely community for seven years and consider this to be my best and probably final home purchase. Wonderful neighbors, safety, and a wide variety of amenities add much to my quality of life
- Lyn R.|June 11, 2019I have lived here for 15 years. It is a wonderful place to live with three swimming pools to golf courses three club houses one with the restaurant and ballroom. It's like a resort living. Love the weather close enough to Palm Springs California but without the sweltering heat.
- Chris K.|June 11, 2019Beautiful community.. everyday I feel like I'm on vacation.. we have it all here..yes it's an older community but I don't have to wait until I'm dead for all amenities to gradually come in over the years. Got it all.. always well-maintained and always beautiful..
- Barbara S.|June 11, 2019This is the FIFTH 55+ community in which I’ve lived. Sum Lakes is head and shoulders above any other in every respect.
Beautifully maintained golf courses and amenities certainly enhance quality of life along with just about 80 Clubs of a variety of interests. If I couldn’t be happy here, I couldn’t possibly be happy anywhere!
- Barbara B.|June 11, 2019I moved to Sun Lakes Country Club a year ago to be near family - my sister and brother-in-law have a home here, as does his mother. It is a wonderful place to spend my retirement, there is always something to do, wonderful people and a real sense of community here.
- John C.|June 11, 2019My wife and I moved into Sun Lakes 22 years ago and never have had a moment of regret. The amenities, the quality of the surroundings (both private and common areas), the residents, all this and well managed, with very reasonable HOA dues. We feel very fortunate to have found this place.
- Sharon M.|June 11, 2019My husband and I have been here 19 yrs. And we love it! Never a dull moment! Lots to do for everyone at any activity level!
- Bonnie D.|June 11, 2019We have lived in Sun Lakes since 2011 and just moved to another home here. We feel like we are on vacation in a resort when visiting our Main Clubhouse or Veranda. So many amenities and you can be as busy as you like. We love cruising around the community in our golf cart. People are friendly and we feel very safe. Home prices are great compared to outside the community. We do have rules, if you don't like rules, this may not be the place for you....for us it is our own little piece of Paradise.
- Marcia G.|June 9, 2019We moved to Sun Lakes for its beauty and amenities and so many clubs and activities. Since moving in we have learned what a well-run and well-maintained community this truly is! The HOA is secure financially and the Master Board and Committees are proactive in planning for our future. We love it here!
- Kay R.|June 6, 2019Awesome golf opportunities here. Pride of ownership in all the neighborhoods. Kind neighbors willing to help when needed. Our restaurants and lounge shine. Pools, tennis courts, libraries, gyms, crafts, bingo, bocci ball, ballroom and performances all here in a very special community. Been here 16 beautiful years and still in love!
- Lois J.|June 4, 2019Lived in Sun Lakes CC for 16 years. Best move we have ever made. Wonderful community and fabulous amenities including: 2 golf courses; restaurant and bar, Vegas level performances in the Main Club House; libraries; over 90 clubs; 3 gyms; tennis courts and more. Reasonable HOA fees a plus!
- Lois J.|June 3, 2019Moved to Sun Lakes CC 16 years ago. I did not qualify by age to reside in SL but my husband did. Worked for almost 5 years after moving in. One of the best decisions we made was moving to this piece of paradise. Amenities include: restaurant, bar, 2 golf courses, 2 libraries; gyms with a trainer, over 90 clubs, top rate Vegas level entertainment in our master club house. We have met many friendly wonderful people here!
- Paul P.|June 3, 2019We purchased our home 20+ years ago. Lots of clubs and groups to join and enjoy or just do your thing. Small hospital nearby with major hospitals a little bit farther
Many airports to choose from if you like to travel from your home
- Randy R.|June 3, 2019I have lived in Sun Lakes for a year now. Love it. Golf course has some of the best greens around. Started here early, need to retire soon to enjoy that this beautiful place has to offer.
- Nancy T.|June 3, 2019Sun Lakes is a great place to live! I have been both a renter and home owner and love living here. The view of the mountains is spectacular! The two golf courses are lush and green with plenty of enthusiastic golfers and even if you’re just a novice it is fun to watch and learn. The full service restaurant is a busy place with great service and food. The clubs and activities are plentiful with something for everyone, plus great entertainment, too. The homes are well built with many attractive floor plans. Stores of all kinds are close by including an outlet mall and casino just down the road. The location is great for climate and situation with Palm Springs, Riverside, Big Bear within a half to one hour drive. Medical facilities are nearby, too. Come visit, you’ll be glad you did!
- Bob D.|June 3, 2019We have been here for 3 years and love the community and all the activities. There is always something to do.
- Leeann M.|May 6, 2019Over 6 years here, over 100 activities, shopping and medical close enough to drive to in a golf cart, wonderful people, both couple and singles, great weather, lesser traffic, 30 minutes to airports! What more could we want?
- Shirley D.|April 14, 2019I moved here 15 years ago as a widow. I felt surrounded by people who care. I felt very safe. The homes are beautiful and kept up nicely. Loads of recreation. Restaurant and Sandwedge for great food. Free entertainment in the lounge every Friday & Saturday eve with full Bar. Different venues each week. You won’t get bored. Close to Palm Springs but 30 degrees cooler. We get snow once a year but it melts right away. You can look at the beautiful mountains or take a trip to enjoy. Beach is within close driving distance.
Join others who have discovered this gem...
- Tom H.|April 14, 2019We moved to Sun Lakes two years ago and were welcomed by many fellow Sun Lakers . We love the many ammenities and clubs they say there are over a hundred twenty clubs to choose from. The residents in the clubs are always entertaining or putting on charity groups to support our local community. Its the people that make Sun Lakes so great , i couldn’t think of living anywhere else. We have three club houses all with pools and state of the art exercise equipment . A on site restaurant that has something for everybody and a great chef and staff . There is a veranda at the main club house that is used during nice weather for concerts and movies on the golf course just bring your own popcorn and park your golf cart for the show . Two golf courses a championship and an executive course well groomed . Gated community also close to shopping and medical care
- Nancy T.|April 6, 2019We’ve lived here in SLCC over the past 14 years. Both as renters and homeowners. Love the views, the clubs, especially the chorale, the entertainment, the classes, and most of all, the many great neighbors!
- Dolph M.|April 5, 2019Have lived here for over 15 years and are still thrilled with our decision. Well built home, reasonable home prices, numerous amenities and activities, championship golf course and par 60 course are both in great condition and reasonably challenging. Rules are fair and designed to maintain quality of lifestyle. Absolutely love it here.
- Barb S.|April 5, 2019We downsized and moved here three years ago and it is probably one of the best decisions we've ever made! We looked at a number of otter 55+ communities in the vicinity and found this one to be the only one for us. SL has beautiful well- maintained grounds and golf courses as well as a gorgeous main clubhouse with a very good restaurant, coffee bar and sandwich shop. Sun Lakes has two other smaller clubhouses too!! There are a number of pools in the community, one of which is indoor.
I also really appreciate our security and have found them to be helpful and considerate. We have lived in a number of communities with an HOA and we think our HOA here in Sun Lakes is worth every penny!!
- Randall C.|April 4, 2019I don’t know who wrote the description of this place, but having toured it, there are NO walking or biking trails anywhere in the community. The nearest Target store is 30 miles away in Hemet. The grounds are well-maintained, but there seems to be an undue pressure to conform to the community’s “beige” standard. There appears to be no margin for any expression of individuality. In talking with some of the residents, the HOA Board appears to be very stodgy and unwilling to adapt to changing lifestyles.
- Larry J.|April 4, 2019Sun Lakes Country Club is, without a doubt, the best kept secret in the 55+ community space. Having been a member of a private equity Country Club before moving here, I had some apprehension about moving to a Country Club "community". However, Sun Lakes Country Club has exceeded my expectations. Top quality Championship and Executive Golf Courses, a full pro shop with golf professionals on staff, three Clubhouses, tennis, pickleball, bocce, restaurant, lounge, weekly live entertainment, and more social activities than anyone can possibly be involved with make Sun Lakes Country Club the perfect retirement, or near retirement, community.
- PAT P.|April 3, 2019This is a five star community meeting all my needs for activities and social
environments. I have met and retained many wonderful friends here at
Sun Lakes. This community is welcoming. I love the golf, the various clubs
and the entertainment . I really enjoy the fact that there is an on site restaurant
with a great menu. If you are thinking about moving to Sun Lakes, do it, you
will not regret your decision.
- Janie H.|April 2, 2019My husband and I have lived at Sun Lakes for almost three years. It is beautifully maintained, with two gorgeous golf courses, and lovely trees and flowers planted seasonally. The amenities are amazing, with a great restaurant, lounge, ballroom, weight rooms, tennis courts, and Bocce, just to name a few. I could go on and on, as we love it here so much. I will say, the best attraction, for us, is the incredible people we have meet... so diverse, talented and caring. We think Sun Lakes is the best.
- Kathie T.|April 2, 2019Moved in a year ago and retired shortly there after. Best decision I’ve ever made. Stunning golf courses (2)...breathtaking views of two mountain ranges. More activities than I can participate in...fabulous restaurant, lounge sandwich shop and coffee bar. Entertainment every weekend... elegant and affordable! Best of all .....amazing people! Can’t imagine starting the next chapter of my life anywhere but Sun Lakes Country Club.
- Sheila J.|April 2, 2019I have lived here for the past 5 years. It was the best decision we ever made. We love everything about Sun Lakes. We say it's like living on a Cruise Ship that never leaves port.
- Kenneth K.|December 23, 2018Lived in this community for 5 years, great neighbors and wonderful country club community, terrible HOA Master Board as well as horrible management company.
- Barbara J.|April 14, 2018Living here since 1994 and cannot find anyplace better! SL also has a fabulous lounge where live music is played during the weekends and happy hour. It is one of the best features. You never have to leave home and it is truly like living in a resort! Prices are still very reasonable even in this market, great selection of homes, and the HOA is well managed. You cannot beat the "pass" weather, and Banning's location is within 30 minutes of other major cities like Palm Springs, Redlands, Moreno Valley, and mountain communities.
- C.R.C. (Resident/Homeowner)|September 30, 2016Wonderful community! We've owned here for 10 years and absolutely love it. The homes and various neighborhoods are gorgeous and immaculately kept, and the facilities are incredible. There are countless activities and clubs to choose from so there is never an excuse to be bored, and they keep adding to them and improving them all the time. 5-star restaurants, nightlife, countless clubs, planned vacations and excursions, tennis courts, 2 golf courses. swimming pools, the list is endless. Home prices and HOA fees are extremely reasonable for Sounthern California. We call this California's best kept secret.
- J.S. (Resident/Homeowner)|August 4, 2015I love the different styles of houses. They're all kept up beautifully. Even if they're the same structure they look completely different because of the yard decorations. There are so many different activities that I don't know where to start. It is so beautiful here I enjoy just driving around and looking at the different houses and the view from the top of the hill.
- Susan L.(Resident/Homeowner)|May 21, 2013I had been visiting my girlfriend here for a couple years and she finally convinced me to make the move. After looking at communities all over the area I finally came to realize she was right all along! My condo here is perfect for me, the prices aren't bad and with everything that's included you really get a lot for what you pay for. I would highly recommend this community to anyone.
