This year GreensKeeper.org awards Cascata Best Playing Conditions 2019 for the Southern Nevada.
Not to be confused with “Worth the Green Fee,” “Best Playing Conditions” is awarded to golf courses open to the public listed on Greenskeeper.org that stand out above the rest with our site users at providing consistently the best greens, fairways, rough, tee boxes and bunkers around.
The job of the superintendent is the life blood of the golf course and most important contributing factor to enjoying a golf experience. A golf course is a living, breathing organism whose health is constantly in flux. It takes enormous dedication, resources and expertise by a superintendent and their staff to provide excellent turf conditions.
The rating system used on Greenskeeper.org is in part created by superintendents. GreensKeeper.org’s trademark and creed, “Know Before You Go”®, centers on communicating these current playing conditions.
How Awards Winners Are Determined
Golf Course reviews and ratings submitted by our 78,000+ Greenskeeper.org community are tabulated over 12 months. Winners are determined for each area.
We divide awards into 11 sections — Inland Empire, Los Angeles County, Orange County, Palm Springs Area, San Diego County, Santa Barbara County, Ventura County, Southern California, Central California, Northern California and Southern Nevada.

Early morning 4.5 hour round on a well conditioned course. Staff is top notch as well as the facilities and carts.
The tee boxes were all very level with great coverage. The fairways were in excellent shape with fantastic coverage. The rough was a few inches in length and was frustrating to hit shots from (I hit many from it). The bunkers were the best I’ve had to play from that I can ever remember. The greens were a little dry and the holes were dried out pretty badly and not fair to the golfers. There was very few ball marks on them but somebody in front of our group was dragging their feet on every green.
The course is in great shape and I definitely recommend a round or two. Great day at Desert Willow.
