Great track. Pro shop guy: zero customer service

The pro shop kid acted like we were inconveniencing him because we had never been to the course before and didn’t know where to go. He also told us the driving range was closed as it was being mowed. I asked if there was a chance that our 4some could tee off early since the range was closed. He said no. Literally that’s verbatim what his response was.

We drove out to the range/first tee area and saw that the range was not closed with no mower in sight and six golfers hitting range balls.

There were zero groups that teed off in the 30 minutes leading up to our tee time. As unhelpful and irritated as the pro shop kid was…the starter was the complete opposite. He was awesome and got us off early. Weird.

The course is great. The greens were lightning FAST. Loved the track. Fun and beautiful. Wholeheartedly recommend this course besides the pro shop kid. Apologies to him for interrupting his Instagram time.

Great high country golfing experience

Definitely a good test of golf. Some holes are extremely tight shooting through canyons of trees. Slippery greens.

Tough Course But Well Worth It!

It rained quite a bit before we got there so it was a little smushy in places but the greenskeeping staff did an excellent job. Fast greens but receprive and fair. The cart kids were excellent as well as the cashier and the starter. Will try to go back someday and tame it.....Ha Ha!

SLOW PLAY

The course is very nice with enough challenges to keep it interesting. Main problem is 4 somes of ancients that hold up play. Wait on every shot. Course was very wet from rains and mowing hadn't happened for some time.

Great Value Great Green’s on Mountain Golf Course

Hey it’s not Torreon, but what a cool track. I’d say the greens were as close to as good. I’ll def be back. My only complaint is not enough bathrooms & cabin homes everywhere.

Fun Track, super fast greens

Loved the course, all interesting holes, some might be considered quirky. greens were super fast, almost unfair when paired with large slopes and tilt of greens.
highly recommend this course

Great Experience

The greens are almost unfair, so fast. First time rounds will want to come back for revenge. Knowing the course layout is key to a good score.

Course Management Inept

The course is nice and had a great setting. Sadly, the speed of the greens bordered ridiculous and limited most pin placements to only small, isolated areas of each green. The remainder of the greens were simply unusable and unplayable. Will not play this course again, nor would I recommend it to anyone else in this condition. Inept course management.

As golf should be....FUN!

Friendly staff, great conditions and a quick round too! Greeted by friendly staff and courteous staff! We were told the greens were running at 12 to 13 and they were.....glass like but very true!

The course was so much fun. Tight, tight tee shots to small undulating greens. Plenty of birdies to be had but also many dropped shots. If you were on wrong side of hole it was going to be tough. From the low side putts were makeable.

GREAT FUN on the course and in the restaurant and bar afterwards. Thanks to everyone at the club. we will be back!

Great greens good course

1st time playing this course
The course itself is in nice condition it does however have an odd lay out
As it winds aimlessly through the old and newer parts of the housing community that has been built around it. It plays well but hard to give it an identity as some fairways are tree lined and super tight and others are wide open sometimes you feel secluded in the woods and others times your in the yards of houses that line the fairway. Again the course plays well and the greens we' re excellent, very fast and took
a few holes to realize that even though the very undulating and sloped greens didn't have much break due to the speed ,maybe an 11 on the stimp
