Positives: The course is in excellent condition. The only issues were the ball marks that went unrepaired. For the desert the fairways were green, lush, and a perfect height. Got a good hot deal price. Don't think I would play here without a good rate.

Negative: Slow round. Played hurry up and wait all day and it took 5h 10m.

We played this course for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed it. We got a Hot Deal for $80 each, which made it all the more enjoyable. The pace of play was great, the course conditions could not have been better. Beautifully maintained, great layout and nice views. Would recommend checking out GolfNow for specials.

Layout was very good, greens were not quite up to summer levels, but very playable. The modified bermuda rough is very difficult to hit out of, and most bunkers had a lot of small rocks in them. Stay in the fairway and all is good.

A little pricey, but worth the money. Played the white tees and that was plenty tough for our group. Greens rolled fast and true. Only complaint was the sand wast thin in the bunkers so tough to get your club underneath to get a soft exit. There was construction on a lot of beautiful modern homes, but not so close you were worried about hitting them. It didn't bother us in fact it was a welcome change to seeing the same grey track homes being thrown up on a lot of courses. Weather was cold and windy, but we still had a great time. Great views and staff was excellent all around.

Everyone on the staff we encountered was friendly and courteous. We exited the pro shop, which is loaded with logoed merch, to our clubs loaded up on carts w/ GPS just steps from the range. The grass was green & balls on the range were in good condition along with a chipping green and a putting green with conditions that matched those on the course. This was a front 18 of our day so pace was crucial. The starter was good about getting us off exactly on time and the pace of our round was near perfect with only brief waits on last few holes finishing out in 4h10m.

I'm partial to Nicklaus designs so the layout fit my eye. The rough is dormant, so it doesn't present a ton of difficulty while the rest took well to the overseed. Bunkers were maintained and most had a sufficient amount of sand. The pin placements were challenging, but not too absurd. The overall condition of the greens was good. The roll was OK, but a mix of different grasses and recovering ball marks sometimes got in way. Otherwise they were somewhat firm, of medium speed which worked out pretty fairly considering their undulation and the valley effect.

The beverage cart made at least four passes and the service was excellent which was also the extent of our food & drink at the course. A number of the holes offer solid views of the valley and on others the mountains to the west provide a spectacular background.

Bottomline, BB is a solid play and a good value for both locals and visitors. Definitely not a dealbreaker, but bringing the quality of the greens in line to match that of the high level of service in the operational aspects would produce a top notch experience.

My three brothers and I played this course, and even with windy, cold conditions, got around in four hours. There were many challenging and/or scenic holes, and, except for the weather, we thoroughly enjoyed the course layout. We agreed it should be played again, but under less challenging weather conditions.
