Three minute video/slideshow showing the panoramas, neighborhoods and common area amenities of Sun City Summerlin Las Vegas
The amenities include a total of 5 pools, 2 of which are indoor, 3 golf courses, hobby rooms, tennis courts, a racquetball court, 3 restaurants, 4 community centers, miniature golf and really, the list goes on and on. The golf courses are homeowner owned as opposed to Siena and Sun City Anthem where this is not the case. In terms of amenities, I would rate this community number one with more of just about everything. More tennis courts, hobby rooms, pools, and community centers. The local infrastructure is in place, with lots of convenient shopping and services. The elevation at Sun City Summerlin ranges from 2,459 ft. to 3,200 ft. above sea level and is built on 2,400 acres. It is comprised of 7,779 homes. Note: With the downsizing of Sun City Anthem, Sun City Summerlin will be the largest, by a slight margin, of the local age restricted communities. It does, in my opinion, offer much more in the way of common area amenities than any of the others. It does not seem likely that there will ever be another age restricted community built locally that will offer the combination of services and amenities that are found here. Sun City Summerlin Las Vegas presently has a little different demographic than the rest of the local Del Webb communities. As the oldest of the communities their residents are on average older than those in, for example, Sun City Anthem. It is far and away the most golf cart friendly of any local age restricted community. All the roads inside the community can be traveled by golf cart. Even Smith’s Grocery at the perimeter of the community has a secured gate in the rear that allows the residents to go to the grocery store, by golf cart without getting out on the main roads.
Homes in Sun City Summerlin
Conventional free standing homes range in size from 1119 to over 3,000 sq. ft. There are a few homes here built through the Del Webb “Gold Key” program that allowed considerable customization. Some of these homes will be larger than the model sizes. The initial construction in this community was on relatively flat terrain. As the construction continued and moved to the west, homes were built at an increasingly higher elevation. The increased slope allows for many homes in the later phases to have more of an opportunity for valley/strip views. There were three separate phases of models at Sun City Summerlin allowing for many choices in floor plans and sizes.
“Villas” or patio style homes are part of the inventory of available homes at Sun City Summerlin. All of these homes share at least one common wall with one or more neighbors. Exterior and landscaping maintenance are handled through a separate association of homeowners. There are several of these neighborhood associations throughout the community. These home range in size from 1021 to 1799 sq. ft. These were built in basically three configurations, two attached units, three attached units and four attached units.
Golf in Sun City Summerlin
PGA hall-of-famer Billy Casper and architect Greg Nash designed the three 18 hole golf courses. The par 72 Palm stretches some 6,849 yards with Highland Falls at around 6,500 yards. Eagle Crest is a par 60 executive course. Highland Falls and Eagle Crest, in particular, offer dramatic valley views from many holes. When you purchase a home in Sun City Summerlin you purchase an undivided ownership interest in these courses. This is as opposed to Sun City Anthem and Siena where the golf courses are held privately. There are several golf packages available to residents. Above in view of Highland Falls course.

Snack bar at The Pinnacle – The Pinnacle restaurant is currently not in operation however I was told that folks that if you purchase food at the snack bar you can use the tables at The Pinnacle as well as tables out on the terrace. Beautiful views from here of the valley and strip.
