Sun City Grand | An Arizona 55-Plus Community

Sun City Grand

Sun City Grand: Surprise, Arizona

Are you curious about Sun City Grand, now known as The Grand, and what it offers potential residents? This article will explore this vibrant 55-plus community, its amenities, and diverse homes.

Let's begin by exploring Sun City Grand's two recreation centers. Here, you will find a plethora of activities, from bocce ball and tennis to pickleball and dog parks. Enjoy resort-style pools, indoor and outdoor pools, two state-of-the-art fitness centers, and separate dog parks for small dogs and big dogs.

Sun City Grand Golf Courses

Sun City Grand's four golf courses are the highlight of this resort-style community. The Cimarron Golf Club, designed by Greg Nash, gives off a California vibe with its palm tree groves, sand, and man-made waterway. The par-72 course also offers a driving range and a pro shop.

The most difficult courses in Sun City Grand are located at Granite Falls North and Granite Falls South. 

Desert Springs Golf Course is a community favorite. With its lavish fairways, expansive greens, and several bunkers and lakes, this challenging course offers fantastic views of the Bradshaw and White Tank Mountains.  

Sun City Grand Restaurants

Sun City Grand offers three restaurants and impressive snack bars for those times you are swimming, golfing, or playing tennis and you just need a quick snack to refuel.

Sun City Comfort Food

Angela's Kitchen is a popular family-owned restaurant located in the heart of the community. Known for its comfort food, the menu includes appetizers like fried calamari, coconut shrimp, and wings. Savory sandwiches, burgers, and pasta are also available.

Best Brunch

Maple & Rye offers brunch from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. every day of the week. Their brunch menu includes Pineapple Upside-down Pancakes, Fruity Pebble French Toast, and country-fried New York Strip Steak. In addition to its unique brunch menu, it also serves delicious lunch and dinner specials.

Coffee, Please!

NW Coffee is the perfect place to meet friends and catch up, as well as to grab a light breakfast or lunch.

What Types of Homes are in Sun City Grand?

Sun City Grand is one of three sister communities, which also include Sun City and Sun City West. It is the newest of the communities and offers not only top-tier amenities but also more contemporary homes. 

This upscale community offers 9,500 homes and 252 condominiums. Ironically, Sun City Grand is not the largest of the Sun City sister communities - Sun City is the largest, with over 27,000 single-family homes and condos combined.

Homes in this community offer private courtyards that lead to open-concept floor plans with plantation shutters and fireplaces, spacious bedrooms, gourmet kitchens boasting Corian and granite countertops, and oversized islands. Sun City Grand's backyards are an entertainer's delight, filled with fruit trees, built-in barbecues, and large back patios.

The Village at Sun City Grand offers one- and two-bedroom condos. Many of these units have been remodeled and feature wood-like flooring, quartz countertops, spacious primary suites, and stunning mountain views. The property is three stories and includes elevator access. The gated community provides covered parking, private patios, concierge service, and its own fitness center, pool, and community barbecue areas.

Where is Sun City Grand?

Conveniently located in Surprise just west of Sun City West, Sun City Grand is near major freeways like Loop 303 and US 60. 

Although Sun City Grand offers a plethora of activities and amenities, you may want to explore the shops, restaurants, and entertainment outside of the community.

The Pottery Place is less than 10 minutes from Sun City Grand. This charming shop is a great place for interior and exterior designs, with a vast selection of unique sculptures, fountains, and bird baths.

The Crooked Putter Restaurant & Pizzeria is just down the road in Sun City West. This popular eatery serves an all-you-can-eat fish fry every Wednesday and Friday from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. In addition to its fish fry, this restaurant offers a tasty breakfast menu with items like Belgian waffles, biscuits and gravy, and breakfast burritos. The lunch menu features favorites like burgers, hot dogs, and, of course, homemade pizza.

Are you a baseball fan? Sun City Grand is conveniently located less than 10 minutes from Surprise Stadium, the Kansas City Royals and Texas Rangers spring training facility.

Is hiking your thing? Living in Sun City Grand means you live near several fantastic spots to enjoy the Arizona sun while getting your workout in. The Vietnam Memorial Trail is 1.3 miles, about a 45-minute hike. This trail is a bit steep, so make sure to wear hiking boots. Once you arrive at the tallest peak, there is a bench where you can relax and watch the butterflies and hummingbirds while enjoying the view and hydrating.

The Maricopa Trail: Sun Valley Parkway to Grand Avenue is a 7.3-mile hike that is ideal for hiking, running, and mountain biking. You can bring your furry friends; they just need to be on a leash. The hike will take you about two and a half hours. This hike is best done during the cooler months in Arizona. 

For a quick, easy 20-minute hike, Centennial Friendship Park Loop is less than a mile, and there is no harsh terrain. 

Several hospitals, such as Dignity Health and Abrazo, and medical centers are a short drive from the community.  

Sun City Grand

Considering Making Sun City Grand Your New Home?
