Sun City Grand
Sun City Grand, it’s everywhere that you always wanted to be. It is one of the proudest of Del Webb’s master-planned communities for active adults. The rules make sure that you have to be age 55 or better to be included in this fun. Sun City Grand is a smaller in size than either Sun City or Sun City West- but it’s no skimpier in the good things that it provides to its special residents. In fact, Sun City Grand offers all of the recreational opportunities you’ve come to expect at a Sun City. When y0ou think about it life at Sun City Grand is something like life in a small village. The lazy days spent strolling around the park, the brass band playing in the gazebo and the times we will always remember- like a never ending movie, the picture always playing in our minds. The Village Center is where it all begins. This strategically placed place serves as the recreational focal point of the whole community. And the beauty is all around- forming a pretty ring of happiness; take the Desert Springs and Granite Falls Golf Courses that serve as the visual blue ribbon tying the community together.
The Village Center at Sun City Grand is owned and operated by the Community Association. Its courtyard design, featuring cascading water fountains and lush landscaping, creates the perfect illusion of a stage for socializing, meeting neighbors and attending community festivals, which are certain to be a big part of the rest of your life at Sun City Grand. A key part of the Village Center is the ever popular Sonoran Plaza Social Hall. This grand hall includes an approximately 9,110 square foot ballroom, meeting room and multi-purpose activity rooms.
But the art crowd need not feel left out- and you have not been neglected! The Village Artisan Studios provides the perfect place for art classes, clubs, and other educational, artistic, and social activities that will be formed in response to resident’s interests. Adding to the amenities of the Villa Center is the Adobe Spa and Fitness Center, an ideal place for “ripping curls” and breaking a good sweat. Meanwhile other residents might prefer more moderate exercise and focus their efforts on making friends while they receive information on health and fitness. This state-of-the-art fitness center includes a heated indoor lap and exercise pool, an outdoor resort pool, indoor spa, indoor walking track, a dance/exercise studio, bocce ball and even some lighted tennis courts.
The first thing you will see when you turn from the highway into Sun City Grand is the green fairways and crystal clear lakes of the Desert Springs and Granite Falls Golf Courses. Both of these courses were designed by PGA Hall-of-Fame Player Billy Casper and nationally renowned golf course architect Greg Nash, so you know that it’s going to be good. So don’t let the beauty of the courses make you think that they are not challenging as well. Both 18-hole championship courses were designed to accommodate players of all skill levels. Multiple tee placements alter the landscape of each hole by adding yardage and often require a more accurate tee shot. Deep, wide greens make it possible to vary the difficulty of pin placement. And those beautiful lakes, all 40 acres of them, come into play again and again. Residents of Sun City Grand are able to play Desert Springs and Granite Falls at reduced daily green fees. Just purchase the annual golf membership. The fee includes private cart trail fee, green fees, eight-day advance tee-time reservations and more.
Sun City Grand offers a location convenient to shopping, medical services and financial institutions. For entertainment, the City of Phoenix offers theaters, dance companies, the Phoenix Symphony and fine art galleries as well as the Phoenix Suns, Arizona Cardinals, Phoenix Coyotes, and the Arizona Diamondbacks professional sport franchises. Hiking, camping, fishing, and sightseeing at the Grand Canyon are all available at little cost or effort.
What characterizes the Sun City Grand lifestyle most are the residents and the collection of special clubs and organizations which are formed as the community grows. If you are looking for an active adult community for adults 55 and better, Sun City Grand is the only place for you.
