Sun City Summerlin - This project sold out in 1999. The community has over 7,900 homes. Here all the facilities, including the golf courses, are owned by the homeowners. The amenities include three golf courses, four community centers, five swimming pools (two indoors), three restaurants, club rooms, tennis courts, softball field, miniature golf, racquet ball, paddle tennis and more.
Sun City MacDonald Ranch - Located in Henderson, this community is smaller in scale than Sun City Summerlin and Sun City Anthem with around 2,500 homes, Sun City MacDonald Ranch features an 18 hole golf course, tennis courts, pool, spa and a community center. The prices here are overall a little lower than it's Anthem counterpart. Lot sizes are on the average smaller than Sun City Summerlin and of comparable to Sun City Anthem. Note, this community was sold out as of Feb 2001.
Sun City Anthem - This is a master planned retirement community in Henderson. Over 7,800 homes have been built with the community selling out in 2009. It features a main 75,000 sq. ft. community center as well as two additional centers. One noticeable difference from Summerlin and MacDonald Ranch is that, here at Anthem, there will be golf privileges but no ownership rights to the golf courses. The up side to this is that there is no responsibility for the course either. One unique feature is that homes which are built on the golf course are often set well above the course.
