Great weather, nice course, but ...

I've played Red Hawk a ton in the 20+ years it's been open. It's a really good track and a good test of golf.
I'll also say that Red Hawk does a great job with pace of play at both courses. There's days when you show up and see a packed parking lot and feel a five-hour round coming on but it's almost always four or just over, in my experience.
This round showed a growing problem with courses and GolfNow/TeeOff, however -- the lack of the course accurately conveying conditions through the booking website.
We showed up and learned it was cart path-only. Understandable but there was one member of our group who was not physically in a good place for that.
Whether cart path only or temporary greens or carts have to be back in by a certain time, it's problematic enough that I won't be renewing my GolfPass membership. GolfNow/TeeOff blames the courses and the courses blame the website. Have had enough.

Great course.

The Lakes course is the go to for this area. Good course, challenging and the amenities are excellent. Comfortable carts and smooth cart paths throughout the course. The greens for this particular round were in excellent shape for this time of year.

did actually play the Lakes course. Over booked the course so had to play the Hills. It was not a bad track, .Greens were extremely fast and bumpy with lots of break.

Nice day

Pace of play was great considering the course was packed. Seemed a little under-staffed.

Greens are firm but receptive.

Only quibble is a lvl of consistency with the bunkers. Some are soft and fluffy. Others (around 9, for example) are hard-packed.

The sand

I've played the course many times before it's a nice course and it's in good shape. The thing that impressed most of all was the sand they had it filled recently making it some of the best in town.

Irritating Golf Cart Issues!!!

The golf cart we drove came with a very restrictive (and annoying) automatic low speed setting that made for inconsistent speed settings on the entire Hills golf course. How would you like driving a golf cart that continually lurched, even when the accelerator was fully depressed? The cart display also showed continuous unnecessary minor warnings (e.g. “Caution Bump Ahead”) that pestered us while driving.

Nice track with great views of the valley. A few of the fairways and a couple of greens were not in the best of condition otherwise the course was in very good condition.

Quick rounds

Played Red Hawk lakes course twice. The course layout is great and it was in outstanding condition. Greens were fast, but true and fairways were great.

Staff was very friendly and helpful!

Will be back to play the Hills course soon!

over booked and slow play

It was a Monday, I had a Tee time of 2:30 and didnt get to play the last three holes because it got dark! Waaay overbooked.. play was ridiculously slow. Players behind us were getting imatant and hit in to our group several times. Nothing we could do! We were backed up and waiting at every Tee box for several minuetes each hole. Sad because it is a nice course- just way over booked!
