Golf Course and Driving Range Green Up

Julie Anderson

The Golf Club will be regrading and leveling the driving range, filling in the hills and valleys, in preparation for seeding the entire surface. The Golf Board recognizes that unseeded areas produce more dust and weeds, and in the case of the driving range, makes picking up embedded golf balls more difficult. We also know that unseeded areas are unsightly, so we will be greening up the driving range, tees, greens, fairways, and the areas alongside holes 9, 10, and 11 (at the front gate). The driving range will be closed in June during the process of regrading and seeding with Bermudagrass prior to overseeding the entire golf course in October. The golf course will be closed Oct. 6, 2024, for overseeding and is scheduled to reopen Oct. 28, weather permitting.

If you would like to contribute to our annual overseed fund, you may send a check to SunBird Golf Club, 6240 S. Sunbird Blvd., Chandler, AZ 85249, or call 480-883-0820. We thank you in advance for your continued support and generous donations as we strive to maintain our healthy, green golf course.

If you haven’t golfed, come check us out! We have reduced summer and afternoon rates, plus a wide range of lessons and groups waiting for you to join. Golf is great exercise, and it’s a fun way to meet new neighbors and friends. We have groups who play seriously and others who go for Nine, Wine, and Laughter. Whatever your level, we have a group for you. You don’t have to be a SunBird Golf Club member to play golf, but memberships are available. For a one time fee of $1,500 plus annual dues of $300, you will receive discounted golf, four free rounds played with your guest, free range balls, one free tournament play, and discounts in the Golf Shop. If you plan to play golf in SunBird for three or more years, your membership will pay for itself. Plus, it’s a great way to enjoy our fabulous Arizona weather.
