The Recreation Centers of Sun City West would like to remind community members of the third and final public forum for the Grandview irrigation and turf project.

Residents are invited to attend this forum from 2 to 4 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18, in the R.H. Johnson Lecture Hall. The material covered will be the same as forums held earlier in the year, and there will be time for questions and answers.  

For those who wish to watch from home or on their own schedule, a recording of the first forum, held on March 21, is available to view online through the Rec Centers’ YouTube channel (youtube.com/suncitywestaz). Additionally, architectural renderings for each hole can be viewed on the Rec Centers’ website at suncitywest.com/GVirrigation.

Gary Brawley, ASGCA, of Gary Brawley Golf Design, will discuss plans for turf reduction at Grandview Golf Course next year to bring the course into compliance with the Fifth Management Plan, which goes into effect in 2025. The turf reduction changes are mandated by the state conservation requirements.

RCSCW Environmental Services Manager Todd Patty will also be on hand to discuss the proposed plans and impacts to the course. The turf reduction affects an estimated 40 of Grandview’s 163 acres. This primarily includes street fronts, road crossings and a 25-foot perimeter around the course. It will have a minimal affect on the playability of the course, and residents will continue to have golf course views along with a small area of desert landscaping.
