My son and I played from the tips. Which made for a good length but, very tight. The coarse is packed into a very small area. So, pin point accuracy off the Tee is needed to score well. It seemed like we were hitting from the other fairway or someone was hitting from ours all day long. With the exception of the greens being a little slow, the course was in excellent condition. Staff was outstanding and very friendly.

Tee Time was 1:30pm, so of course u expect it to be a little slower cause of the volume of players on course for the cheap rate. But, with no marshall, (which I notice most courses here in Las Vegas don't have), there isn't nobody official to push the slow group ahead. We waited on every hole, for at least 4 to 8 mins! For one thing, the group ahead were playing from the back tees, which is not correct tee box for this group. There drive hardly went straight or far! There were all over the place, looking for there balls, standing there watching there ball, etc.. etc.. "No ready" golf in this group either! The group behind them had to wait. Our group behind the 2nd group had to wait.. With no marshall, it was a long round!! I believe we called the pro shop, but nobody came out? On top of that the 2nd group quit after 9 holes, so we were the next group behind slow one & of course it creates a daisy chain, so group behind us waited also! I believe we were patience enough, but sometimes enough is enough, cause u lose your own game & rhythm! It was a long 5 hr day!! I wouldn't recommend playing in afternoon..

First, the entire staff very courteous and helpful! Fairways and sand were fine. However, greens had been punched and sanded and were hard putting for $109. Again, folks very nice but just a fair experience.

Greens were very bumpy. Don't understand why it's so hard for some to fix ball marks and there is 2 bottles of sand mix on the carts yet players are to lazy to fill in their divots.

Overall we had a great time but this course was a little bit of a nightmare. Several groups went off right after each other and we were waiting most the day for the group ahead of us to tee off. Add to that sprinklers going off on half the tee boxes, lawn mowers in the middle of our fairways, and generally unkept greens - and this place left a lot to be desired.

The course is in a horrible condition.

1. The condition of the greens a not acceptable!

2. The sprinkler are running during the day.

3. It is very hard to find the balls in the first cut.

4. There is no starter.

Course was excellent. There were a lot of reseeding and repair which meant crazy watering of these areas which sometimes made it difficult to traverse the course and use the tee boxes. It was a very windy day which made the course even more difficult, and it is already quite difficult. Plus whoever made the pin placements on this particular day is a Sadist. Altogether it was an excellent visit.

This course is a lot of fun. Not easy, but fun. Undulating greens and tight tree lined fairways. The course gives you lots of choices and and can bite you no matter what you decide. Play it safe or go for it.

Very nice course that is perfectly maintained. Course is not long but challenging. Staff allowed me to go out early and get my round in quickly. Narrow fairways give you a side hill lie should you be off center. Greens were in good shape and rolled true. Will go back soon.

Really neat track in Vegas, tee to green it was in good shape, greens were poor but I don't believe it was due to a lack of upkeep. Golfers simply don't fix divots and use sand in the fairways, pretty disappointing.

Course is playable while still being a challenge, all skill levels can enjoy it.
