Course not up to standard

I've played this course at least a dozen times over the past three years. The course condition is the worst I've see it.

From tee to green course is in very good condition. However, all greens are pockmarked with many unrepaired ball marks, and many greens have large and small bare areas. It was hard to find a line of more than 4 feet free from such blemishes.

The bunkers are a disgrace for a course of this caliber. I've never been impressed with the condition of the bunkers. Most of the bunkers have been filled with crusher run rocks and apparently are going to remain as "unplayable." The greens that are somewhat playable are either filled with rocky gravel, or just river sand. There isn't a single bunker on the course that has fine, white sand. Not good for a course of "championship" caliber.

They've also raised their green fees. The member I played with said the course is usually very busy and the owners have no intention of fixing the problems. Too bad.

Challenging

Beautiful golf course that will challenge all aspects of your game. It’s fair but difficult. Lots of elevation changes, few flat lies, and severely undulating greens but fairly forgiving for errant shots. Course was in very good shape aside from several bunkers that are being redone due to drainage/irrigation issues. The views on the course are gorgeous. It’s a treat coming home and being able to play here.

Great layout, challenging

Bunkers are all being rebuilt for better drainage, which should be finished early this spring. A fun layout with challenging greens. Most fairways are pretty wide but greens are small and quick. Lots of elevation change. Just a really fun course. Staff very friendly.

Great course, in great shape

I have seen this course in good and not so good condition, but for winter golf its in great shape! Traps still under construction as they work on improving drainage but what’s not to like here? Food is great and course is challenging but fun. Plus I won all the money today!

Challenging but fun

This beautiful mountain course will use every club in your bag. It’s not a bomber’s paradise, nor is it target golf. It’s a nice blend of shots mixed in with nice semi-fast greens. The course is in very nice condition except for the bunkers... those are basically unplayable red clay. The staff was very friendly, and they had a good selection of food/ drink options at the turn. I’ll definitely be returning...

Silver Creek

Nice layout, friendly staff and the course was in great shape with the exception of a few sand traps. I definitely plan to go back. If you want to play a fair and tough course then Silver Creek is worth your time.

Tough but fair

Good layout for this course. The greens were in good shape with some tough pin placements that made it a bit more challenging. The only downside was most of the bunkers were not in playable condition. Otherwise the course would have been extremely nice for the price point.

Post flooding round

Didn't have great expectations for the course conditions after the flooding earlier this week but I was pleasantly surprised, no plugged balls or sloppy lies even in areas that have been problematic in the past. Well done.

Don’t Listen to RicksGolf8844

The greens are just recovering from fall aeration 2 weeks ago. Many of the bunkers are not playable because they’re being repaired/replaced currently. AkA New management is investing in this gem.

If you like mountain golf with elevation changes and views, you will not find a better deal.

RickGolf— let me know if you want to play again. I’ll cover your green fees but we’ll play $100/hole and see how it turns out.
