Hard Pass

The course is unkempt with half dead trees and brown spots everywhere. No gps provided on cart. No restaurant/club house service. I guess that is closed on sundays? Pricing over what other and better courses charge. Quite possibly the unfriendliest staff I’ve encountered ANYWHERE.

So many better options in the area

Fairways lined with houses on lots of holes; lots of garbage and unkept areas make it less than desirable. Won’t be playing there again.

Great Day

I thought the course was in good shape. The greens rolled really well, a little tricky to read. I enjoyed that ponds were clear, most courses we played looked like the back lagoon. The pace was great and staff very friendly and helpful. I like the old course feel of CC. You don't have pound the ball 275 yds to have chance at regi. Had a lot of fun golf. See you next time.

Don’t Bother

Played based on decent but not great reviews so expectations were not high. And I was right. Yes the greens roll nice but tees and fairways were pretty scruffy. Paid $80 for a non-resident. This is a $50 course like Mesquite nearby not $80. Good course for the old folks to slap it around but definitely no hidden gem. Tahquitz Canyon or Cimarron nearby much better value for the money if you’re trying to go cheap out here in season. Very friendly staff was a plus.
