Overview:

The Victory Course at Verrado reopened about 2 weeks ago after being closed since about Mother’s Day. Verrado wanted the course to mature and they felt the best way to do it was to close the course for the summer.

With over seed now complete and of course with the golf course being “cart path only” for only another week, I decided to go back out and see what changes (if any) have been made during the closure over the summer. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the temporary trailer for the pro shop is now gone. In its place is the “Cliff House”, which is a small bar/pro shop with outdoor seating over looking the 18th hole of the course. It’s a very nice set up, but I was led to believe that it was going to be larger in size.

Course Conditions:

As mentioned earlier, the course will be cart path only until Mon 11/6. The course is in nice shape and the greens were in excellent shape and had good speed due to the fact that the greens were not over seeded. Verrado has a new form of Bermuda on the greens that does not need to be over seeded during the winter months. The only thing that was mentioned was that the greens will definitely have a brownish color to them by January or February. Will have to check back and see what that looks like … I wonder if our winter visitors will be happy with that?

Finally:

The course has two distinct nines with the front nine playing closer to the White Tank Mountains and it looks like home sites will be fairly limited on the front nine, while the back nine will play more through home development. I really enjoy the last 4 holes because it plays back toward the mountains and the last hole is a very nice par 5 over water and doglegs back into a small box canyon. The only suggestion for 18 is that they add a tee box between the silver tee box (548 yards) and the white tee box (470 yards). A good number would be at about 510 – 520 yards.

Verrado Golf Club is now 36 hole golf complex that people can enjoy when they come to the “Valley of the Sun”.
