Great layout

Been playing here for two years now since it’s right out my backyard.
First where it needs improvements,
The fairway grass is still a little spotty but much better than last year
General clean up along the fairways edges to help find your ball when you’re close to out of play ( help speed up the pace of play )
The greens could use to be speeded up a bit although being a little slow they roll nice. The green side bunkers are grass and should be sand
What is good about the course
The layout is as good as it gets you better be driving it in the fairway. If the conditions were better it would be as good as any Troon course I’ve played, my complements to the designer. Each hole is its own space and generally can’t be seen from the other holes. I dare you to play from the tips OMG what a monster 6880 yards a real test of golf. Five sets of tee boxes be sure to play from the box that matches your handicap
The views are really nice of the Gila mountains and turn to the west and you can see for 40 miles. A lot of wildlife to be seen, birds, rabbits, roadrunners, lizards and yes the occasional rattle snake
Tale of two courses, the front nine is very interesting and mostly flat. The greens are large with lots of slope and break in them. The back nine is all up and down with some forced carries, it continues with large greens and several greens having multi tiers.
Oh yeah it’s really back to nature only two fairways with houses on them

Most Improved course in Yuma

This course hired a new greens keeper 2 years ago and he has really transformed it! The fairways had lush grass and only a few bare spots, the greens were flat and uniform, the greens have a mixture of grass types so they look a little different but they roll nicely. The tee boxes are in great shape as well. Now that many of the winter visitors have left the play is so much quicker! If you have golfed it earlier in the season you should check it out now, it will surprise you!

Pleasant Desert Course

As desert courses go, this is a nicely laid out course that is well maintained with difficult greens . It is priced very fair , with free range balls and very polite staff. It is easily the best course in the Yuma area.

wish the fairways were as good as the greens

I played this course without knowing anything about it. Good thing the greens are fantastic, because the rest of the course is in dire need of work. I guess they play winter rules all the time, because finding a piece of ground with grass on it, is hard work.

The condition of this course has improved tremendously since 2012.

We played Las Barrancas many times in 2011 and 2012, but because the condition of the course was poor in our opinion, we didn't play it at all in 2014. We gave it a try on Monday, March 23, 2015, and were pleasantly surprised by how much better shape the course was in this year. We are playing there again on Friday, March 26.

Average to Poor Public Course

No map on the score cards. It is not a walkable course.Some of the signage as to location of the next hole was confusing. The driving range was stark, and the balls were worn out. Course was overwatered and mushy in spots and hardpan with no grass in others. Grass bunkers were poorly maintained, and swampy in the bottom. Their practice putting area was nice.

The course was very good

The fairways were a little shaggy and some of the greens sanded, but the over all condition of the course was very good. the whole staff that we encountered were very helpful and friendly. The only issue that we had was on the back 9, the play got very slow and there was no marshal to keep the groups moving

BEAUTIFUL GREENS

Tee bixes & green were immaculate... if the staff reflected even 10% of the quality of the course, then this course might get a ten....Golf supertendant gets a ten but the folks that Greet you at the course need to hussle to get a 1. Great golf, lousy staff.
