Sunland Village East Overview

Sunland Village East is a 55+ active adult golf retirement community wtih 2,435 homes, located in East Mesa. With a population of over 4,000 residents, it offers retirees a friendly hometown feeling: small enough to meet neighbors and create friendships, but also large enough to offer residents a wide assortment of clubs and activities.

After successfully completing two other communities in Mesa (Dreamland Villa and Sunland Village), Farnsworth kept moving east along Baseline Rd, and started development of Sunland Village East in 1984 as their third Mesa active adult community.

Despite the vast array of great amenities, Sunland Village East’s HOA fees are among the lowest in the entire Greater Phoenix area, always something to take into account when considering a 55+ retirement community or second home.

Homeowners with east-facing homes at Sunland Village East can enjoy some nice views of the Superstition Mountains.

Sunland Village East Golf

The golf course is an 18 hole par 62 “executive” course that is owned and operated by the Sunland Village East HOA. The course is open to the public, which helps the HOA manage the cost of maintenance, but you’ll find most of the people on the course live in the community.

The course invites golfers of all skill levels. Its design was created in harmony with the surrounding homes and townhomes with a beautiful view of the Superstition Mountains. Golf Shares can be purchased at the Pro Shop by the homeowners.

Fat Willy’s restaurant is located next to the Pro Shop and provides a panoramic view of the golf course and its fountains.

About the East Mesa Area

Mesa is the third largest city in the state of Arizona, and covers a large geographic area. The Eastern-most and Northern-most areas of Mesa are the most recently developed, and where you’ll find most of the newer homes. The completion of the Loop 202 freeway through this section of the city has made the area very accessible, and now getting to downtown Phoenix and Scottsdale Fashion Square are just 20-30 minutes away.

East Mesa enjoys fabulous mountain views of Red Mountain, Las Sendas Mountain, and the fabled Superstition Mountains. A major mall and shopping center, Superstition Springs, is only a 5-15 minute drive for most East and North Mesa communities.
