I played Wildcreek GC this time in mid March. They experienced heavy rains and lots of snow (see the pics). A few things of note.

1) The greens were not maintained very well.

2) The OB areas could use some clean-up

3) Many areas of the fairways were in need of attention.

My perception - "we need to hire a course superintendent, please apply." I played several other courses this week, and they were in good to great shape. while I enjoyed the elevation changes from hole to hole, I was disappointed in the course maintenance. Maybe a management change or lack of supervision issue, but the course is in need of someone who cares about the game.

Good luck.

That being said, this round was very cold and windy. No fault of the course. The greens had just been punched and sanded so they were a little slow. The cart had some problems going up the hills. I always find in interesting new companion to play with and this round was no exception.

I liked this course. The setup, the elevation changes, the different types of holes (uphill, downhill, dogleg right and left, short par 4s, long par 4s). There's a good variety of holes. Conditions were above average. Staff was friendly, and we even ordered food before our round (Cuban Sandwich--4 out of 5 stars). Overall, I really like this place. So why the 3 stars? PACE OF PLAY. I have played this course 3 times, and EVERY TIME it comes to a grinding halt after a few holes. Why? This is one of the more affordable golf options in Sparks, and for whatever reason some of the people that play this course think they should play the Blue Tees, which have a 71.6 Rating and a 130 Slope. On top of that it can get windy here, along with some severe elevation changes. I saw a guy in front of me take 3 full shots to get on the green on a par 3.....He (and his entire group) should be playing from the white tees. So that is why EVERY ROUND here is 5+ hours. There are too many newbies that come here that have too big of an ego to move forward 1 set of tees. Save yourself the frustration and just go somewhere else. Course conditions are nice here, but who cares about conditions if the round is 5+ hours, even on a weekday.

Pro shop organizational skills are truly lacking.

Pace of play is about 5-6 hrs during the week.

Lots of trouble and blind shots.

Greens roll about 10 on the stimp.

It was a 3 hour front nine and a 2.5 back nine.

The grill is totally unorganized. The pro shop guys were OK. All support staff plus the grill personal are horrible,
