Fairways are in excellent shape as are the greens. The golf carts have a chip in them so if you leave the fairways or cart path the cart barely moves- need to be aware of that. ( would have been good to have that info early. 19th home is nice and all staff very friendly

The starter is classic. Nunzio has become another reason to choose this course.

My GPS watch had to be manipulated to run first nine second as the nines have flip flopped.

Great grass on fairways and greens

Weather was a little cool and breezy so we had the course pretty much to ourselves

Our cart attendant Kortnie (with a K) was excellent. She was cool with my teasing. I loved her. The course was very challenging for an "older gentleman" :). Especially from the next to tips tees. A young lady served us breakfast (name escapes me) and schwas great. I was amazed to know she had 2 children. She looks so young. I loved the coziness of the temp club house. If you build a big new one, you will lose that.

Always like playing this course when I can. Greens good, fairways good, no real fancy club house yet but I am sure it is coming. If I would do anything it would be give on the phony clean club for money thing. Have a area for a person to put clubs and shoes to be cleaned while at the nineteenth hole and actually do a great job on the head grips etc. Hate to be chased by the guy begging for money.

If you play golf in Las Vegas, this should be one of the places you play, and if you do, you will play it more than once.

The layout was great, nice views and course is very well kept. Fairways are generous but the elevation changes on holes make for some challenging shots none the less.

Greens were not very fast but I think some aeration had been done recently which would account for that. Looks like they could be pretty slick if superintendent wanted them to be.

I have played seven different courses in the Las Vegas area and I would say this one has been my favorite so far.

Played this course a few years ago and wasn't impressed...however, this time was different! Course is in fabulous shape, somewht easy from the more forward tees and made for an enjoyable round.

This course is on my list for our next visit to LV.

Wide open. Rough has very long grass, fairways are cut the length of most courses rough. Makes it easy to not roll into the desert because the ball doesn't roll.

have played this course many times as it's one of my wife's favorites. Greens are true but slow. Easy if you carry the ball long, tough if you need roll out.

I used to play here every Monday when it was called Tuscany. The course is in excellent shape. Pace of play was pretty slow. Some great challenging holes. The bar/restaurant was nice, with great prices on drinks and food. Tracy, one of our servers, was incredible.

This is a nice course and well maintained. My only complaint is that the fairway cart limit is so far back from the green that you wind up walking excessively from cart path to your ball and back again. This is not only frustrating but helps to slow up play. This cart restriction is totally unreasonable.

This course was in great shape, with lush fairway and receptive greens. The pace of play was my only negative to the round. I didn’t play up to my normal game but it wasn’t the fault of the course. The waste area was everywhere, but only in play on a wayward shot.

Although it was quite windy, it was warm & the course was beautiful with the mountains in the background. They had over-seeded with tons of rye seed so the course was green & lush (almost too lush since the rough was high & we didn't get the usual desert run in the fairways). We really enjoyed the round & it was a great bargain compared to like courses in the area (especially since we were staying nearby at the Westin).
