Was joined by rgm2525 and dangerousbri for my second round of golf on Wednesday in Vegas. I heard the conditions were good but did not expect them as nice as we encountered for a municipal course.
On the 6th hole I noticed a course staffer with his small dog (lola) roll up on us and stop to chat. Turns out it was the Superintendent Scott Sutton. I came to learn the entire course, even the greens, with exception to some bermuda turf lining the wash that runs through the course, is all paspalum. Paspalum is the super lush turf some of you may have experienced at Olivas Links or Buenaventura recently. It’s very salt and heat resistant plus provides a beautiful playing surface through the green. What I did not realize was how nice paspalum can also be for a putting surface as well. It’s easy at first when playing a paspalum green to mistake it for bermuda grass (as we did) but when you come to realize everything putts true and there is NO grain to decipher when reading putts, you are pleasantly surprised. The greens ran slower than they looked but we were told this was only because Scott had his crew double verticut the greens that day.
In regards to the rest of the conditions they are completely lush fairways, tees and rough. Good quality sand in the bunkers although there are stools (base roots of paspalum) invading the edges of the bunkers. As far as layout, it’s a very straight forward, flat, no frills, conducive to quick pace of play, relaxing course. It’s surrounded by a local lower income neighborhood with houses on most holes left and the wash on the right. It has a beautiful small clubhouse, excellent service and facilities.
Given its exceptional conditions, pace of play and affordability I highly recommend this course to anyone looking for a great deal and relaxing round of golf.

Played here in the morning of Tuesday, 6/14 with sixpez. It was sort of a preview round in advance of the course’s July 1 opening. The conditions are very nice and definitely look ready for opening day. The greens were very smooth, somewhat firm and rolling medium/medium fast. Fairways are good except for a few rare spots that have seem to be having trouble growing in. The rough was pretty good condition but not too penal. A little longer rough along the edge of the wash might be preferred to help balls stay out of the hazard. Tee boxes were good. Bunkers were excellent.

Layout-wise, this is the type of course that seems so easy yet it’s actually somewhat difficult, especially if you have trouble hitting the ball straight. Nearly every hole has the wash on the right, and many have OB left, so those elements factor into every shot. The course looks wide open, but because the fairways are elevated well above the wash, you can’t really let the ball leak right much at all, or it tumbles down the hill into the wash. There’s not much visual definition on the course, so again it appears more wide open than it plays.

Why Did We Expand the Regions?

It’s simple.  Greenskeeper.org has been growing.  We expanded the number of regions because golfers like you have reported about golf course conditions in more places you play.  In short golfers come to us if they want informative, relevant golf course reviews and it’s all due to your, our GK Community’s, diligence.  You let us know your experiences and well if we hear about it everyone else does too.

Why so Many Regions?

Golf is an experience and every experience is unique.  Different golf courses offer different experiences.  What we look for in golf course reviews offers a little insight into every golf course we play.  Not just one point of view but many, and by providing many different points of view you get a clearer picture of what each golf course has to offer.  To that end we felt it necessary to provide regions with their own highlighted golf course.  Local players can enjoy the fact there is a great facility they can play just around their corner.  Golfers looking to experience new golf courses can play these and experience first-hand these unique golf experiences. Put simply, we allow not just your high-end. daily fee courses to shine but the local municipal as well.  They all deserve a fair shot and they all deserve to shine.
