We have played here several times now, and find the course a pleasant change from some of the other "snobbish" high end courses we've tried. The layout is challenging, the greens roll true, the fairways are nice, and the staff is very friendly. We will be back to play again.

Course was in excellent shape with ability to allow player to play it as long as desired. There were just enough hazards to make golfer think about were they were going. The greens were very good but speeds varied on some versus others. The mountains in the background made the course more picturesque and a pleasure to play. All in all a fun course to play.

The foothills was a nice course top play. Par 4's average around 380 and par 5's around 500. Smallish greens, very nice. Needed some herbicide on the fairways and rough, weedy. Overall, decent course. Would play again.

Fairways and greens were good. This course has seen a remarkable rebound on conditions. Previous 5 yrs I would not have even thought about playing here as the conditions were not good. Hitting off mats at range always a drawback. Staff were friendly.

Arrived early for a 8:08 T-time. Had a three some but our third was running behind. The gentleman at the starter shack was very nice and put us in right when our third showed up, which was only about 10 min later. pace of play was great, never really waited on any hole. Course was in good shape. Greens were running fast. Overall a enjoyable day considering I played lousy! Stayed after for the $1 beer and had a great lunch at the bar patio. The bag drop guys are always really courteous too.

We were looking forward to playing here as the course appeared to have good terrain and appeared to be in good shape. The fairways and greens were fine but if you miss the fairway, recovery is a bit tough. The worst part here is that we started at 12:40 pm and finished at 5:45pm. 5 hours. A "marshall" came by us one time and asked how it was going. We told him how slow it was. He then moved on. We also played behind a group of 4 that only had two bags of clubs. Will not play here again.

When you drive in see the clubhouse and surrounding area, putting green you think it's going to be a nice experience......It really wasn't....if you venture anywhere off the fairway really not very good, the greens are decent in most cases, lot's of bunkers.. I would rather pay 10-20 dollars more some where else for a nicer course, this pic on the review is so far from what the course really looks like....disappointed, only played 8 holes paid for 18.
