Dissapointing

West #2 closed due to a washout, 1 and 3 poorly laid out and boring back and forth, other holes just okay. Won't be back.

Wish we would not have played

The course was in terrible condition, but the fairways had recently been overseeded with rye. The greens putted like shag carpets, and even downhill puts would not reach the hole.

I think the course will be very playable in about a month. They should close the course when the conditions are this bad, or just charge 1/2 price.

Needs a lot of work for the price you pay. Greens in rough shape. No ball washers anywhere. Lots of mud everywhere.

$$$$

Course was not in good condition.
Very slow greens, bumpy, basically 2 putts and pick up your ball.
Fairways one nine grass was patchy, seconds nine fairways were Oka but cart path only. 1 hole was completely closed.
There are some very pretty holes around the restaurant but greens were very slow.
There is much better value out there for the money they are asking.in the valley.
Courses are out pricing themselves and this is one of them with the condition of the course.
Could be a great layout, maybe just the time of year ????

It was fine ... but

Played the South/West (35/35 - par 70) with the West #2 being out of play due to accidental flooding. The North 9 was going through overseeding. The West 9 just came out and was cart path only - it was in very good condition but the greens were very furry. The South 9 wasn't in great shape. I'm guessing it's going into overfeeding next and they had reduced maintenance on it. It's an old school course (built in 1977). Lots of houses on both sides of most fairways - in fairly close proximity. There are also a number of trees that come into play. Fairways are generally generous and the greens are small. Greens were bumpy and/or slow. Bunkers were in good shape. Water is in play on a few holes. There was no on course food or beverage service. Overall, it was fine for the price (comparatively) - they knocked a few bucks off the fees given the conditions and didn't charge for the range, which was appreciated. The staff were all very pleasant. Would I return? Not any time soon - there are others to try in that price range - but it was fine.

Playable but…

I played south and north. The south was cart paths only and kind of a pain. Other side really thrashed fairways and greens. Some
Confusing jokes about where to go, like after t shot on 9 you see two greens and have to keep checking gps to make sure right one.

There are a number of really cool
Holes with water. It’s somewhat disappointing for the $$$, 109, because it could be so much better.

Lack of disclosure

No carts allowed on the course, which was not disclosed when I booked the tee time, as course was under repair. Hole 2 on West course was closed, again not disclosed. Holes 1-3 should all have been closed due to the poor conditions. Very disappointed with the course conditions and the lack of disclosure of the same. Btw no discount was offered.

Not as advertised

Fun layout, nice staff, terrible course conditions. Totally overwatered and muddy. Greens horrific and slow, I’ve seen second cuts at real country clubs shorter than the greens. Can’t believe this is a country club in the desert. $40 a round public course quality..

Disorganized, terrible start, poor conditions

Booked early twilight, looked forward to an upper middle level course. Wrong gate directions on Golf Now, almost late. Starting area was a zoo, little help. 1st 3 holes in the floodway, one unplayable, two sloppy. The rest was in rough shape, mostly furry greens, old course.
Fast pace at least, but paid for a mid-top course and got this. Live and learn, I guess the name is a draw. Cool looking resort, but play elsewhere
