Sun City MacDonald Ranch is home to the Desert Willow Golf Course owned by the residents of the community. This signature Billy Casper and Greg Nash designed course is carved into the foothills and offers some of the most splendid views of the Las Vegas Valley. The 3,800-yard, par-60 course is one of the most challenging executive courses in southern Nevada. It presents a challenge for players of all skill levels and can be played in a refreshing three-and-a-half hours.

    This community has so much to offer for such a low price annually! The residents are generally friendly but do have the occasional negative person. All in all, you won't leave here unless you can't take care of yourself anymore.. this place is just that great!

    We moved here 2 years ago with high expectations that this would be our retirement place. There are lots of great amenities here but the average age demographic seems to be 75 years and up. Many of the social activities are geared for the Glen Miller -Lawrence Welk crowd. Some folks are friendly but many are not. Neighbors stay in their homes with garage doors down. Needless to say we were looking for an active lifestyle and the hot weather here makes it impossible to do much outside. We do not fit in and are moving back to the East Coast.

    Moved from New York, over 18 years ago. Just LOVE, living here. I would not change it at all. The people are all nice, and watch out for each other. Looking forward, to spend the rest of my life at S.C.M.R.

    Reminded me of Assisted Living Facility
    My husband I visited this community and the rec center reminded me of an assisted living facility. We are both in our 50s and there is no way I'm ready for that type of environment yet.

    We moved to the area as snowbirds at first but now we spend more time here than back home in Ohio. The views here just can't be beat and the weather is so nice! We love walking the trails and spending a lot of time outdoors playing golf and tennis. We love being so close to Lake Mead and Vegas plus the airport is close so when we make the trips back to Ohio it is really easy. We love our home here and have been very active with a lot of different activities too. It's a great community!
