And my final round of my 2 day, 72 hole end of summer PS binge was at a new course for me, Eagle Falls.

You drive behind the Fantasy Springs casino. Around past the parking garage. So around the garbage bins. Turn right into the alley. Then into another parking lot that seems like one that is always empty. A row of palm trees leads you into a parking lot that actually has a few cars. Rumor has it, there’s a golf course behind the trailers housing the pro shop and snack bar.

I check in, and off to the starter I go. Across the bridge…..into a fantastic golf course surprise! I was nervous, as the starter gave me at least three rattlesnake warnings, with the ominous “if you go into a bathroom, throw a golf ball in there first to scare off any snakes.” I didn’t go in any of them, uh-uh, no way.

Conditions here were better than the other 3 courses I had played (Shadow Ridge, Stadium, Nick Tourney). Greens were smoother and rolled a little better. Fairways not so spongy, you’d even get some roll here. Rough plush, but not difficult.

What a fun layout. Only 3 3-pars and 3 5-pars, but the 4-pars include a couple of short ones that tempt you to have a rip. Fairways are wider than you might think, but once you start to realize how wide they are, they throw a super tight hole at you to make you nervous.

Really glad I picked this on a whim for my final round of my golf binge. This is a great course hidden on the east side of town, don’t miss it!
