What a beautiful course only to find out it was overbooked and I'll managed. When you pay rates like what they want, you would expect a good round of golf at a decent pace. Not a marshal to be seen. Foursomes stacked up on one another. No best ball or golf ready. Then the beverage gal driving down the middle of a fairway after selling her stuff on the golf course. I'll play somewhere else the next time since that have no respect for ours!

Nothing but good things to say. Staff at drop off and pro shop were beyond friendly. Course was in great shape. Very challenging and long even from blue tees. Views are awesome. Since I wasn't charged full rate on my card by golfnow the pro shop gave my high school son junior rates which made this course a steal. Will play this every time we visit.

Beautiful surroundings with the mountain backdrop

Which was a good thing because it gave you something to do while your waiting on every hole.I think that they could leave a rough on the edge of the water holes so your ball doesn't roll quite so easy.

This was my first time at Silver Rock and I came away impressed with the golf course. I am a 9 handicap and this course was very interesting and offered me significant challenge from the blue tees which were 6600+ yds (though you can push it back to 7500+ yds if you like to be tortured !). The course was in very good condition for a public course and the value for the money was pretty good. My only complaint is that the pace of play was very slow. It took us 4.5 hours but it felt like 5.5 hours because we waited on every shot.

We really enjoyed SilverRock. It has a very nice layout with several original holes. It would be easier to play the second time around because positioning is critical on several holes. We began at 12:00 and had a 5 hour round, so the pace of play was a serious problem. Not too many groups behind us could finish because it is so close to the mountain. It is set out in a beautiful area. The practice area was a long way from the clubhouse. We got a pretty good deal through GolfNow. Normally it is pretty expensive.

12:08 tee time on a Tuesday. 5 hours to play. Were paired with another twosome. After the first 4 holes, we had to wait on every hole. On the par 3s there would be a group on the green and 2 groups waiting to tee off. Rangers with clipboards everywhere, apparently monitoring the situation but not saying anything to anyone or doing anything about the slow play.

I don't know why some courses do not care about slow play. It hurts the experience for golfers who want to play a nice and challenging course. If you ever play The Country Club in Brookline, MA and play slow, the pros will make you take what they call the ride of shame. they put you in a cart and drive you to the next hole. This is for members and guests. Everyone falls in line. For the rangers at Silver Rock to sit in carts and watch people play slow and say nothing is ridiculous.

The course was in great shape but hard to hold the greens while hitting into them. Lots of traps cause i found them but fluffy sand so was no problem getting out. Saw a large herd of Mountain Sheep coming down the mountain side and on the course, it was a real treat for my guest from the east coast. Overall a great day.

We had booked 36 holes but got rained out in the morning, first time for everything. Came back out at 10:30 and played. Cart path only. Made it around just fine. Always in very fine shape.

Beautiful golf course.

Conditions were great and everything about the course itself was fantastic.

The pace of play was ridiculously slow...there is no excuse for 5 plus hour golf rounds.

Never saw a Marshall once until the 18th green so the course doesn't care...they pack every tee time anyway so they are making their money.

Just a shame they sacrifice the enjoyment of their patrons by not enforcing a pace of play policy.
