About Us

We offer resort-style living for 9,550 homes, and 252 condos. A variety of clubs and interest groups give residents the opportunity to experience a full range of activities. In Sun City Grand, you will always find something to do.

Sun City Grand is a beautifully landscaped 45+ Del Webb active adult community located in the northwest valley of Phoenix in Surprise, Arizona. Sun City Grand is a smaller, more intimate community than either Sun City or Sun City West, yet offers all of the recreational opportunities that are expected to be offered in a Sun City. We celebrated our Grand Opening in October 1996 and completed our last home in December 2005. This community was designed to meet the needs of retirees by offering a wide array of amentities, facilities, clubs, and interest groups. Over the years, Del Webb assisted over 80,000 homeowners with realizing their dreams in their new homes. Many homeowners have purchased their second homes at Sun City Grand, and many more have referred friends and family to purchase a home in the community.

  • Up to 15% of the homes may be occupied by the age 45-54 owner or renter.

  • An under-55 non-owner (age 19+) may Live in the home with the 45+ owner or renter, or with a 55+ occupant.
  • Any person of any age can own a home, but an under-45 owner cannot occupy the home unless there is a 55+ occupant living in the home.

Activity Cards
  • Each qualified occupant is entitled to an Activity Card - up to two cards per home. The card has the name, membership number, and a photo of the holder.

What are the property taxes like for Sun City Grand?

How are the finances in Sun City Grand?
  • Our annual budget is over twenty million dollars. Sun City Grand has fifteen million dollars in the reserve fund. We are financially sound. We have very few homes in foreclosure.
How much is the annual assessment and what does it cover?

Are there medical facilities in the area?
  • Banner Health Del Webb Memorial Hospital is located just outside the perimeter of Sun City Grand and there are many doctors' offices in the hospital area. Because of its location between Sun City Grand and our neighbor Sun City West, the doctors and hospital largely treat the residents of our two communities. There are also many dentists, physical therapists, chiropractors, etc. located right here in the area. In addition, the world renowned medical facilities of Mayo Clinic and its specialty hospital are located in Scottsdale, easily accessible from Sun City Grand.
Are golf carts allowed on Sun City Grand streets?
  • This is a "golf cart community" in that golf carts must be "street legal" with lights, turn signals, etc. They must be insured and tagged just like a car and are allowed on streets where the speed limit is no more than 35 mph. All streets in Sun City Grand are 25 or 35 mph - but no higher, so golf carts may drive on all Sun City Grand streets. You can get to some of the grocery stores and businesses on Grand Avenue using your golf cart (via Mountain View Blvd.) and you can cross Grand Avenue and get to the hospital and other medical offices and businesses in Sun City West.
Does Sun City Grand have public transportation such as a shuttle bus or taxi service?

Rentals must be a minimum of one month and one occupant age 45 or over.
