Played Sunday, June 11 with sixpez, itslikeimsaying and nachogrande using the UnderPar voucher with unlimited golf play. Truly an all day affair, had a blast. Got on the first tee around 12:20 on a very busy day. Slowish round compared to the first of the day, but decent pace for as crowded as the course was Sunday. The Bikini team sure didn’t disappoint! Great 90 degree weather for June with a little breeze most of the round.
I agree with ILIS as to condition, not quite as good as the Valley course. step down from Valley due to lesser condition greens. The greens were slow and a bit bumpy from either the verticut or seeds/leaves from the nearby trees. Well struck full shots held nicely.
Tee boxes were good. No real issues that I had with any.
Fairways had good coverage, no bad lies and semi-lush. Not bright green, not burned out either. More in a transition period. Rough could be not penal to horrible depending on where you ended up. Under trees with low branches, DEEP and penal.
Bunkers were decent. Most were crusty on top and wet underneath. Mixed bag with the winds. Hit the liner in one which wasn’t fun.
I prefer this layout to the Valley as well. Has a bit more character than the Palms course. 3 Rounds for $25 is a great deal for decent conditioned courses out here in the valley. Thankfully we got this one in before the 117 temps forecast for next weekend!
I’d play here again.
