Always good

Excellent fairways and greens. A few areas of construction for new tees but nothing impacting play. Rough was difficult , but hey it’s golf. Played in under 4 hours. This course is challenging and a always a CC pleasure to play!

Look this course is always in great shape . The rough is very challenging but it’s golf . It’s not for the faint at heart or for somebody who doesn’t like to be challenged. The pin placements Were tough and that’s how golf should be fun and challenging. The layout of fabulous

Not for the faint of heart

Las Colinas was objectively in excellent condition, except for #7, which had construction that shortened a fun par 4 into a par 3.

BUT!!! The bermuda rough was high and thick. If you missed the fairway by even a foot, you most likely would not find your ball unless you stepped on it. Moving it forward was almost impossible. The only excuse I can see for this (and not having a shorter first cut) is that there must be a pro tournament coming shortly. For the rest of us, the setup was far too penal to consider returning.

Colinas

Both courses at mission inn are always a treat,with los colinas playing a little more straightforward and not as devilishly tough as el campeon. That said,it still has some teeth,with many long par 4s and a few wicked 200 + 3s.Greens and tees are always some of the best in the area,and they are doing alot of work on the course now.Highly recommend,they have a reasonable senior rate mon-thurs.

Pro Shop Employee

I love Mission Inn Resort and the two courses. Used to play in a league there and now volunteer and earn certificates for the days I work. Yesterday, the only person in the pro shop challenged me regarding the validity of the certificates. I was treating a friend to a round of golf and the person working had an attitude that did not belong in the pro shop. Made me feel unwelcomed and just wasn't what I have experienced in the past. Maybe he was just having a bad day, but if you want golfers to return, they have to feel welcomed. I'll be back but maybe the person working yesterday in the pro shop needs to be less aggressive and more informed. Just my opinion!!

Great Golf Experience

Colinas takes you deep into the wilderness. Very private & quiet . Some greens protected by trees so bring your shot shaping and don’t miss by much the jungle out there is thick!

Great Experience

This was the first time I’ve played the Las Colinas course and it was great time for sure. The Staff were very efficient and professional. They made sure I had everything I needed and that I knew where to go. I was paired with a member and they were very friendly and helpful with the layout. It did seem as if every hole was a dogleg right and the course is a little lengthy playing about 6400 from the white tees. But the course was in great shape I could tell the staff knew what they were doing as they have had a ton of rain lately. The rough is tall in places due to the weather but the fairways were nice. The greens were a little slow, they had been aerated probably a week or two ago, but they rolled good and true.
I will definitely be back here soon again.

6 - some oh my!!?? Terrible outing.

It would have been a good golf outing but the pro shop or someone decided to allow a 6-some on the course which slowed the entire course play down tremendously. After phoning the pro shop after a few holes of this nonsense they really did very little to stop the nonsense. A 6-some is generally unheard of, even on lesser known and obscure courses, so to have to put up with this at Mission Inn was a total shock and surprise. We were playing as a 3-some so the pace was ridiculous and took hours more to finish. Not to mention the 6-some wasn’t even courteous enough to offer us to play through. All in all a terrible golf outing at Mission Inn.

Disappointing

It would appear that all the time and effort is going in to El Campeon, considering they just hosted an Epsom Tour event. I'd be curious to know if they used the same range, as the main range is (and always has been!) in terrible condition.
Practice green was amazing, and safe to say, everyone was looking forward to getting out there if those conditions were anything to go by - they weren't!
As soon as we arrived at the first green, it was evident that the practice area must only be reflective of El Campeon. The Las Colinas greens were slow, bumpy and not rolling well at all.
It progressed downhill from there. Rough tee boxes, rough fairways, awful off the fairway and the icing on the cake, swarms of mosquitos, especially rounding 5, 6 & 7 - bring bug spray!
Construction is wreaking havoc and it's not subtle. #8 is gone, with no re-routing, so just a massive drive from 7 to (old #9) 8. The back continues to spiral downward, with a par 5 chopped to 250 yards!
Pace of play was good at first as the course was open. When we did finally catch the group in front of us, it was evident that none of them had really played much golf. Given we had a group of 25, we couldn't play through them (not that they ever offered) and the ranger, who passed them 3x did nothing! We backed up to 3 groups on a tee box before we had to ask the beverage cart girl to intervene and call the clubhouse - should not have come to that!
The kicker at the end of the day is the restaurant and bar that is way, wayyyy over priced!
Until all the construction is completed on this side, I would highly recommend staying away for now!

Under Too Much Construction

Front nine in fair shape. The back nine has a par 5 shortened to a 245 yard par 3. Some areas have so much work being done you can't drive or walk on them.
Not worth it for the price.
A lot of the back 9 is cart path only.
