Pin placement for all of the holes were ridiculous. The greens were rock hard and there was no way to get the ball close to the hole to score with those pin placements. The course was also playing slow, but we never saw a course Marshall moving groups along.

Very slow round. 5 - 10 min wait at each tee box. Course was overbooked it seemed. 5hr 10min round. A lot of hard pan on backside, a bit disappointing. Bunkers need to be refreshed, hard as a rock sand. Starter was a bit smug. Said if I was going to hit from the tips I better be able to keep up with the group I front of me. Drove it right in front of the green 325 yards and gave him a wink. Decent course, has potential just need to space out tee times another 3 min or so and a little tlc.

I really enjoyed the course even though i played a very windy day. Every fairway has unique features and challenges ranging from significant elevation change, blind shots, doglegs, and t-shots that require restraint. I recommend you pay close attention to the fairway layout map located at each tee before your shot- many water hazards are reachable but not visible from the tees, and there is no map on the scorecard. A rangefinder is a good idea here, there are very few distance indicators on the course, hard to find! That takes us to the greens! Wow, it's nice to see a course where the greens are full of character and elevation. You will no doubt be able to test your judgement and challenge your patience. I would play this course again any time, the setting is beautiful, and pace was fine.

Staff was friendly. Website did not mention available range. The practice greens are not even close to reflecting the course greens. Challenging course. Lots of dog legs. Pace of play was ok, but locals familiar with course press you and played through. Staff was familiar with locals and their faster pace but yet paired with us non local.

I played Legends of Arrowhead, and play here often as it is close to where I live. I must be honest, it is a good layout, but there are so many spots that are just dirt because of poor irrigation coverage that it is a shame. This past Saturday I played as a single, who got paired up with three other guys. We waited on EVERY TEE with another foursome waiting on every tee in front of us! Ridiculous. The best approach would be to space the tee times out a minute or two longer or don't even try to play this on the weekend. A good layout design that does not get the attention that it deserves from the maintenance side, and on top of that , the bunkers are all hard dirt. Did you guys ever hear that there is supposed to be sand in bunkers???

The course is beautiful and the layout is challenging but great fun. The thing that made it a terrible experience it that if you don't keep up with the players to the second, then you are hounded and watched the entire day. We were even reprimanded for falling a fairway behind when the folks in front of us stepped out on the turn. We were expected to catch up with the group that was ahead of them. The greens are quite hilly but you can't have fun with the challenge...take a moment and try for a good put because if you do, you will be knocked down once again for being slow. It is such a sham that one can't enjoy this beautiful course.

The more I play the course the more I like it!

Greens and fairways in good shape. A few dead spots.

Maintenance crew removed damaged trees and debris after significant storm on 22/3.

Round played to 4h compared to typical ~5h round. Pace was good.

Wife was disappointed in food items available at clubhouse. I'm about the golf, food not significant impact on my day.

This course has potential. Nice layout, wide forgiving fairways. Our cart was making an annoying high pitched whistle sound. It also would stall and we would have to push to start it. We called the proshop and they sent a Ranger out. Instead of giving us a new cart, he told us the carts will do that if they get wet and the noise should stop after a few holes. The whistling stopped but not the stalling. It made for a frustrating round of golf. They also had sprinklers on a couple of holes near the green. We had to get wet to retrieve our balls. They should water before tee times start.

It was a record breaking hot day, 96F. Very slow pace of play, 5 hours round. We started at 12:30, finished at 6:30. Found water tanks run out of water at water stations, called the pro shop, was told no one available to change the water tanks. Could be dangerous.
