Good course, would play again

Really enjoyed the course, greens were in rough shape, apparently fix your ball-mark is not a thing here. But overall the course played well and quick.

The golf beverage cart was only seem twice on front 9 and they only had 1 bottle of water, never saw them on the back 9.

If your a first timer, be prepared for chilly reception by the staff for invading their space. .

Exceptional character

This golf course has 3 different nine hole counterparts. I played upon the canyon and vineyard 9's. I LOVE the vineyard nine. There's a need to successfully hit all 14 clubs you have in your bag really well!
The greens were quick, but manageable. I made a lot of putts out there today.
Enjoy wonderful and difficult shots!

Great course, but felt pressured by tournament players

We loved the course but had a members of the Friday tournament crowd come down while we were playing the first green and intimidatingly tell us to hurry up on the first hole and throughout our 18 holes. We kept the pace of play and were respectful. Was disappointed to know that public members who paid green fees were looked down upon at such a renowned course.

The course is in excellent shape. The fairways, greens and tee boxes were very playable. It's an interesting layout, very challenging in club selection for players who don't know the course because of changes in elevation. The greens are true, a little slower than I am used to.
