Beautiful Track. Staff Needs Attitude Adjustments.

First played this course almost 20 years ago. Came back to celebrate another birthday and, while the course layout and conditions did not disappoint it just seemed that the staff members were not happy to be there. From the moment we asked if we were up next on the tee to when we went inside at the turn to get a drink, the staff just didn't seem happy. Job satisfaction in a recreational environment is critical to the overall experience. I'm afraid the employees we encountered just didn't leave the impression that they were glad that we were there - or that they were.

Pros:
Course layout, views and condition.
Couple we were paired up with. Calvin and Susan were just fun to be with for the day.
Ease of finding your way around the course.
The combo tees is something every course should offer.

Cons:
Staff members seem unhappy. Wasn't just my impression. My partner and Calvin/Susan said the same thing.
Pace of play was a little slow. And it wasn't helped when they allowed a fivesome in front of us to continue. The Marshal even said he "had told them to speed up" but they were a hole behind the group in front of them. But they were members so....(Could tell because they had their own carts)
Cost.

Summary:
I'd visit this course again. But frankly only an hour away there is another course, Devil's Thumb, that is half the price, filled with friendly staff members and is just about as beautiful. Plus it is FAR more quiet!
I'd recommend this course for the views and condition. But just go into things knowing it's going to cost you unless you are a local, there may be members playing as fivesomes or whatever they feel, the staff may not make you feel like you are appreciated and the pace is going to be a slow one.

Windy weather
Used cart

Caught Redlands Mesa on a day that featured 20-25 mph winds, with gusts of 30 - a tough ask in the high desert.

The course features an abundance of elevated tee boxes, leaving shots exposed to that wind. It made for an exhilarating challenge, particularly on the par 3s.

RM takes advantage of its’ ideal setting amongst the backdrop of the Colorado National Monument. You will be in awe of the breathtaking vistas. The outward nine, in my opinion, is more difficult and slightly hindered by an abundance of houses that are plainly in view. The inward nine, however, is largely void of residences and is the much more visually stunning routing.

First-time visitors, even armed with a free course guide, will be a little lost or dismayed at times about where the correct play is. That’s ok. Rub of the green is decidedly in play here and it will tend to even out. There are many risk/reward options along the way, particularly on the par 5s, which are reachable in two for better players. And if you are not from a region that lies well above sea level, prepare for a one-club difference.

Fairways were a little splotchy in parts. It could be the drought I was told they are experiencing so far this year. Bunkers were good. Sand is coarse and fine. Greens were a touch on the slow side, but rolled good. I’m not sure on a day like today that the staff could get them any faster without playability concerns. My ball continuously oscillated on the green throughout the round.

RM is a course chock full of character and I wouldn’t doubt if players either love it or hate it. Some holes feature interesting quirks that if embraced enriches the experience.

Slow play

5 1/2 hours on a weekday is just too slow. Having to wait on every tee boc you can’t maintain any momentum

Beautiful but VERY challenging

Played Redlands Mesa for the 1st time. Virtually every hold is more beautiful than the last one but this is not a course for beginners! Multiple sand traps along with unforgiving greens with many ups and downs of the terrain make this a very challenging course. That said, I thoroughly enjoyed it and will be back!

Great Track - Stop the Ads!!!

What a fun course to play! (except for the non-stop annoyance of the GPS system in the carts) The track is spectacular! There are quite a few homes on the course but they are set back far enough that they shouldn't be in play. The greens are the only defense the course has. At nearly 5,000 feet elevation the ball goes forever so none of the holes felt long to me. Many of the greens have 3 or 4 sections with dramatic slopes separating them so if you miss on your approach, a three putt quickly comes into play. There is one par five on the front and three on the back. All but one are easily reachable and allow for some birdies! I thought the green on the one front nine par five was silly. The drop between the upper and lower tier is easily 6-8 feet which is more suited to a putt putt course. The course really needs a marshal. The back nine was easily a 2.5+ hour pace.
My only serious complaint is the incessant ads coming from the GPS system. It was nonstop!! At least one ad per hole - often two - that were difficult to skip. Just charge me an extra $10!! The last thing I need on a perfect day for golf is 10+ ads from the local real estate agents. Enough already!!!!

Western Colorado Gem

It's not my everyday course, but it is in the same town. Always well maintained with beautiful backdrop against the Colorado National Monument. Course design has a few circussy holes, but I always enjoy it. Was a Golfnow Hot Deal with a coupon ($45), rack rate is $79.

Took 5+ hours to play

We waited on every single shot on every hole on the course! It is extremely beautiful but the pace of play was god awful!! It was a very long day and doesn’t need to be that way!
