Same old

It’s a great little place but man, they really need to do some work with their team on pace of play and NOT making everyone rush like you’re behind when you are on a 3:55 pace. Starter and ranger friendliness is a challenge at best.

But, great shape, good folks otherwise, good shop x selections and food.

Been a while

This is the first time I played this course since the late 1990's and I live within 5 miles. I had a much better experience than playing Starr Pass a week earlier.

Green in June

The course was in excellent shape for the end of June. The fairways were all green, no burnt-out areas, and the greens were good. Had some weather come in and it cooled things off and made the last 8 holes pleasant.

Fun round!

The greens have been recently aerated and are ready for another sanding. Course should be great in a few weeks! Pace of play was great, finished in less than 4 hours. Staff was friendly, look forward to playing there again in the near future.

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. This season, for agronomical reasons, we did not overseed the fairways, and we apologize that your golfing experience did not meet your expectations. However, we hope you will give us another chance by coming back late spring/summer when the fairways are no longer dormant. We will look forward to seeing you again on the links!

Take Your Money and Game Elsewhere

Not sure if they rebuilt the greens themselves a few years back or hired it out but either way fire the internal builder or get your money back. After all this time still rock hard and patchiness of grass. Understanding they don't over-seed fairways, they are limited in dormant Bermuda grass as things are just coming to life, so expect lots of run off the tee. Indoor staff was certainly nice enough, but another example of how a Ranger (who is probably a volunteer there to get free golf) ruins the day. We were let off the fist tee not on our exact time and no one in from or behind. By the fourth hole, Ranger Rick was telling us we were behind even though no one in front or behind waiting. We played as a foursome in under four hours, so you tell me how that constitutes any discussion about pace. This is my 3rd and last time I will play at this facility....way too much money for a resident guest fee w/ cart for conditions and service we experienced. El Con up the street is a much better option.

No grass

Great views hence the name. Course has great bones but for whatever reason they don’t overseed in the winter. I have played this course many times in the past and as a rule in good shape, but now no grass just hard pan painted dormant Bermuda . I also don’t get why they the greens are like cement! I will play here again but not until the summer grass is back.

Dont play here

The course is in terrible condition. No consistency in bunkers. Some are hardpan, some are fluffy. None are well maintained. Groundskeekers use machine grooming that leaves deep wide furrows. They don't bother to smooth out. Worse rhan footprints. The greens, not overseeded, have places where 6 old hole plugs are within a 4 foot diameter circle. They have had to resort to placing 2 hole locations on every green. It doesn't look like the superintendent ever goes out to inspect the conditions , or oversee and supervise the workers.

The fairways are not overseeded. They're matted down and roll like linoleum. Very very tight lies. The areas around the greens on severl holes are covered in crabgrass (now dead) that make chippin or putting very difficult.

Painted fairways

This is one of my favorite local courses. Unfortunately the management decided to skip overseeing this winter. Painted fairways and greens really detract from the experience.

Waffle greens

The greens were recently punched, they are about ready for another sanding. They should be great in a few weeks! Pace of play was excellent. Played as a twosome and finished in under four hours! Never saw other groups either ahead or behind us! Had a great time!!!
