Slowest round in years

We typically like driving out to the desert to play golf in the summer because we can usually motor through the round in about 3 hours. Unfortunately, it took us almost 5 hours in 112 degree heat! Having 4 groups on one hole seem to be the norm. I realize they probably are short staffed in the summer and don’t have a Marshall, but 5 hours on a course like Indian Canyon in the middle of summer is unacceptable.
It really is too bad because the course was in good shape, fun layout, and friendly staff.

Great Time Golfing

Played this course for the 2nd time in 3 years. Great hospitality! Course was in great shape. Was somewhat difficult for a 79 year old. Needed 3 strokes to reach most greens. Greens were excellent. Ball rolled very true. Fairways were in excellent shape. It was a lot of fun hitting Woods, Hybrids and Irons off of grass for a change.

Yikes

Wasn’t sure if I was on a golf course or someone’s backyard that has been out of town for 10 months. I mean sure it’s the end of the “season” but for Christ sake. Tee boxes and greens were decent but that it’s. Never seen grass growing inside bunkers before

First Time Playing

Indian Canyons

When you step up to the first tee and see the homes lining the left side of the hole, you can’t help but think about the celebrities being here and playing in the 60’s and 70’s. The course plays fast but be aware the the rough can be punitive.
The course is doing a lot of maintenance but it does not come into play. The sand traps though need work; (read sand) as they are too punishing to your score hitting off packed/compressed dirt or felt.
I will play the course again and my guest wants to also play it too.

fun in the sun

We arrived a little early but easily teed off prior to our designated tee time. If you stay in the fairway your experience will be enjoyable. The rough is challenging but not a killer. They are letting the fairway traps to grow over. It would appear that their long-term goal is to turn the sand traps into grass bunkers. Easier to mow then to rake. The greens are in good shape and will accept and hold a well struck ball.
Last thing, bring your own yardage device. The carts do not have one.

Disappointed

Well we were here 3-4 years ago we loved the north course but this time it was disappointing. It's really gone down hill on overall maintenance and shape of the course. Not sure what's going on but I bet the folks who live around it and are members are even more disappointed! Nope won't be back and especially not for that price.

Dissappointed

Heard a lot about the course. Course was in rough shape. Greens dry and burnt in places. Fairway bunkers over grown and starter said to take a lateral drop. Fairway had patches of brown spots. Generally wide fairways. Even though the course wasn't pristine, I enjoyed the round. Paired up with two guys from Seattle area. They were friendly and enjoyed their comnpany.

Nice Course / Exceptional Staff
