Sun City Summerlin is located in ideal location–mere minutes from the glamorous action of downtown Las Vegas and the fabled Strip–but it nestles against the Spring Mountain Range, at an altitude of 3,000 feet. Among the approximate 7,800 homes (which include single family, garden villas and patio homes) are extensive green belt areas, three 18-hole golf courses and extensive recreation facilities.
In addition to the three (3) Billy Casper/Greg Nash golf courses, two (2) restaurants and a snack bar are four (4) community owned and operated social and recreation facilities: Mountain Shadows, Desert Vista, Sun Shadows and the Pinnacle. They incorporate outdoor and indoor pools, 13 tennis courts, craft rooms, card rooms, social halls, a 312-seat theater, exercise rooms with the latest hydraulic exercise equipment, bocce ball courts, a baseball diamond and spas. More than 80 resident-organized social and recreational clubs cover a wide variety of interests.
The immediate area surrounding Sun City Summerlin has seen phenomenal growth, with convenient shopping, banks, two public libraries, major grocery chains, two hospitals, neighborhood resorts, many restaurants and other golf courses.
