Golf Course Review Rhodes Ranch Golf Club Las Vegas Nevada
Reviewed by: rob1563, Las Vegas
Played on Veterans’ Day, 11/11, with John_T and a couple of his co-workers. Paid $65, which is about the top of what I would pay for a “local” course. Teed off on time at about 8:45a, which is about as late I would go since I had to work at 3. This course has a reputation of being a bit slow. Finished the front 9 in just a shade over 2 hours, then waited on every hole of the back, with 2 groups on at the tee on a few holes. Unbelievably, finished in about 4:40, just above their pace of play recommendation.
Course is in great shape. A few tee boxes had the markers set with uneven lies, but most were fantastic. Bunkers were in solid shape. I was only in ones near the fairway, but the group appeared to be handle the green side ones with ease. Rough is thick and gnarly, I had a couple of shots where it grabbed the hosel and killed the shot. Fairways were incredible, just lush from tee to green. Greens were in excellent shape. Smooth, very receptive, and medium fast.
The more I play here, the more I love this course. It’s a Ted Robinson Sr design and has that SoCal feel with plenty of palm trees and some big water elements. It runs through a residential development, but the houses are out of play and barely noticeable, except for the early morning house party on #9. There’s lot of elevation changes and plenty of awkward lies. Maybe not a must play, but definitely second tier.
