Course is very interesting with well above average variation in the holes. For men there are some tee shots that are visually intimidating, yet in reality there are good landing areas. My wife played the red tees which are nicely women friendly. Those wanting to experience more challenge can move back to the golds . This course should go on your list of must plays.

This was a great course to play. It was visually amazing as well as challenging due to the natural terrain. I played mid morning and the course was not that busy.

My husband and I truly enjoyed our round (Canyon/Ranch) here. It was challenging for me, a female 14 handicap, from the golds which are long (over 5600) with some carrys from the tee that made me hold my breath. But doable! Canyon has particularly beautiful holes, no housing, with breathtaking elevation changes. Excellent greens which even though punched fairly recently rolled smoothly and quick. On a Wednesday afternoon we had the course to ourselves. We look forward to playing again. Highly recommend.

First time playing this course. Very impressed with the course conditions and views. A very challenging course that will test every aspect of your game. Not much rollout in the fairways and greens were fast, but fair. Green fees were reasonable for this level of course. Got stuck behind a slow foursome, but finished in about 4 1/2 hours. If you are looking for a beautiful and tough course, try this one.

Played Ranch-Vineyards for the first time. Pro-shop and on-course customer service were excellent and course conditions were exceptional. The recent rains in the area appear to have brought out the wild flowers which made for a stunning backdrop for the round. Greens ran fast and true and fairways and tees boxes were well maintained. I preferred Ranch over Vineyards only because I prefer elevation changes. Only words of advise would be to not challenge the water features as they are longer than they appear and are sloped to capture errant shots. :-( Will definitely play again when I return to the area.

Thank you for joining us and I am sorry you felt the course was dry. We did cut back on watering this week slightly as we were expected to get an inch of rain. However, we had many nice comments about the course yesterday and several replay groups from out of town. Hope to have you visit us again soon.

The canyon 9 was very nice. Great views from the tee boxes and in good condition, however the ranch 9 was not nice at all. Conditions were very dry. Not sure if that 9 is irrigated. No nice views at all. Overall I'd have to say a little overpriced and we had the hit deal price.

I am sorry you did not find the Ranch course enjoyable. We did just do some spring maintenance to it that week so it may have been a bit rugged, but overall the comments on it have been positive. We have our maintenance dates posted online, in our golf shop and try to have our staff communicate with all of our guests but some may slip thru the cracks. Again I apologize if you were not informed of these conditions and hope you will join us again.

Mr. Kent,

Thank you for joining us at Steele Canyon last week. Despite your round being just over 4.5 hours it sounded like you still had a good time when speaking with you on the phone. Unfortunately on a busy day with only 18 holes open when 1 group falls behind a bit it is difficult to get everyone caught back up, despite our Player Assistant's best efforts. We do pride ourselves with the daily pace of play routinely being 4-4.5 hours or less and monitor it as best we can. We hope to see you out here golfing again soon.

the canyon/ranch nines make for a very fun and challenging round. nice balance of uphill/downhill, dogleg left and right holes. greens are a bit smaller than average without any severe breaks or tiers; very smooth and fast that roll beautiful, only a few greens have protective bunkers, which makes iron play a bit easier.

the vineyard nine is shorter and tight with more houses and environmentally sensitive areas that are in play on a number of holes. I would skip this nine if the others are available.
