DO NOT PLAY HERE!

This course is in terrible condition. No guard on-site to let us in, clubhouse looks like no improvements since opening in 1978. Decrepit restrooms and dated decor throughout . Golf carts old and in disrepair. One cart of ours died on hole 1 and the other’s oil light came on and never went off. Course conditions are so bad. Doesn’t look like it’s been maintained in years. Tee boxes are terrible, fairways are a dog track and bunkers have little sand with weeds and rocks. Cart paths had huge holes/cracks and very dangerous. Course restrooms were locked too. Had a miserable 5 hour round here. Course layout stinks with mostly blind shots, drought conditions and lack of attention. Don’t waste your money.

Goat Track

This course is in dire need of some TLC, from the outdated golf carts to the unmowed fairways.
You need to keep your expectations low if you plan on playing this track.

Beyond Disappointing

The course layout has the potential to be a very nice mountain course; however, course conditions were atrocious, pace of play was terrible. Incredibly disappointed.

Year Built: 1976. Last Year Maintained: 1976

WOULDN'T HAVE EVEN BEEN WORTH $10 FEES

The property and location are so deceiving. Gated community with a guardhouse as you scale the mountainside to get to the clubhouse...

That's where the appeal ends.

Nothing about the facility has been touched or updated since 1976 which was the same year the course was built.

The carts are in complete disrepair with torn seats, and rain covers that don't even support themselves. The same goes for the cart paths which would have been better off just torn into gravel at this point.

I don't think a fairway had been touched in the last 40 years as there was barely any signs of grass on some fairways. Literally the front lawns of the properties in the community would have been better to play off of.

Bunkers weren't even close to being bunkers. Most have been taken over by the "grass" from the fairway/rough.

I would be embarrassed if I lived in this community and this was the course that was provided. Despicable.

Fun course ,tough greens

I really enjoyed the rounds at High Vista. Good mountain layout. The greens are tough for a mid capper.

CARTS

Love the layout of this course (not in bad shape for February) and usually not busy. We had a tee time for 2:10. Showed up 20 min early to find 10 to 15 people that had been waiting for a cart for an hour. Staff was friendly about the issues. Seems they have many carts in need of repair. This course could be great with some $ and effort. All that said, we waited 1.5 hrs for a cart, probably wouldnt have waited had it not been a gorgeous winter day. Would love to return but some $ needs to be invested, and not much.

This course needs a lot of help.

Booked a tee time through Golfnow for 11:30am for $35. I arrived at the main gate at 11:15am to find a closed gate and no one in the gate house. Finally at 11:30 someone who lives there came through and let us in. I go to the pro shop late now but what do I find no one there 15 minutes later this kid comes in for me to pay and charged me $40 when I asked him about the difference he tells me I guess Golfnow screwed up. So I pay then he tells me it will be a little while because they didn't have any working golf carts that he would have to try and fix one. Finally get my cart 40 minutes later and it sounds like the front wheel was gonna fall off and there was a burning smell coming from the cart. The tee boxes fairways and the greens were in need of a lot of work. Very disappointed and will never go back or suggest anyone to go there. If there is gonna be a price difference between what golfnow quotes me and what the course charges maybe I should stop using golfnow.

Average - Could use some work

Some holes were hard to find, cart paths were bumpy, some holes absolutely surrounded by houses/condos, bunkers are non-existent, definitely needs work.

Views are amazing, layout was fun, greens were in good shape and FAST

Average golf course- wouldn't pay over $40 to play here

Zero stars if possible

We didn’t get to play today. We booked our tee time on Tuesday for a Friday start. The parking lot was half full and they were out of golf carts!! At my age, I don’t walk mountain courses. Good luck.
