Played the Blues (6671/72.8/133) in 3 hours, 20 minutes.  Pace of Play (POP) was great because it was around 100 and clear with little breeze. I like this course more with each visit. Do not score well here, but still one of my favorites.
This course is in excellent shape bordering on immaculate. The layout is certainty different visually from other courses with huge, wide fairways surrounded by crushed granite. Almost every hole has a forced carry over desert-scape, but the fairways are generous in size. The Bermuda tee boxes are large and very well maintained. Even the par 3’s rarely needed divot attention. The Bermuda fairways were lush & well maintained. Few unfixed divots. The only grass that qualifies as traditional rough here are the strips around the sand traps, because if you are around a green, it is mowed as fairway. Outside the fairway is the crushed granite and the desert-scape. There are a tremendous amount of sand traps on this course. I counted 14 on 1 hole alone. Very well maintained with high quality sand. The green side bunkers are deep and large and the fairway traps often have larger lips than most people are used to playing from. The Bermuda greens putted medium fast and were smooth. Firm and tough to hold a shot where it landed.
The customer service from all encountered was great. Drink cart came by probably a 1/2 dozen times. Nice grass range with complimentary balls, nice sand/chipping and practice putting areas that closely resembled the on course conditions. Nice restaurant onsite with outdoor patio dining. Definitely recommended.

1 of 3 courses played and this one turned out to be my favorite.  Although it was cart path only, it only took us a little over 4 hours to play as you could get close to your ball by driving through the desert area.
Course is just a beautiful green and the bunkers had nice fluffy sand. Greens were a little on the slow side but they all rolled the same.

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.

Look for additional Golf Course highlights from our Worth the Green Fee for 2016.
