I moved to Surprise, Arizona last fall full-time because of wonderful golf and outdoor activities the State has to offer. As I've gotten to know the town, I've been surprised at how few golf courses are located in the actual City itself. With that said, it doesn't mean that we don't have great golf courses in the surrounding areas. Most of the golf courses in Sun City West are open to the public. My favorite course however has quickly become the Briarwood Country Club. There is no doubt in my mind that it is the finest design and best condition course in the Northwest Valley. There is a great variety of holes short and long and a lot of challenge around the greens. The course requires you to use all of your clubs well and to have a good short game in order to have a good score. The staff at the club is very friendly and I would highly recommend that anyone looking to join a private club, check out Briarwood located in Sun City West.The club is very affordable, has a great golf course that you can play and enjoy every day, friendly staff, and great food! What more can you ask for!
