This is my local course, I love to play the North side. The fairways are usually in good condition, but the rough can get a little deep. The sand traps can be pretty bad, but I've heard they will be fixed soon. For such a flat area, the layout of the course plays great. There are some fun water hazard holes, and plenty of long dog leg blind shots. Great value if you catch the evening rate!

Clubhouse opened just 6 minutes before our tee time, not set up for getting range balls. No time to hit range balls or practice putting. Greens and fairways were in good condition. If you did not actually hit the fairway your ball was very hard to find, but you would find 2 or 3 other balls trying to find your own. The rough was at least 1 inch taller than your golf ball. Too much recent rain must have kept them from doing a lot of mowing.

A very convenient course for me to play. Staff was friendly and the course was in great condition except for the occasional bunker.

I played as a single but stayed in line with a group of four ahead of me as I would have had to wait for the next group. I still finished in four hours.

The North course is looking really good right now as long as you stay out of the bunkers and deep rough. Fairways are firm and running. Greens are faster than in the past and pretty firm. Balls hit with wedges will run out a bit. Surface is rolling well. Bunkers need work and it looks like there is some activity going on there. As soon as they can mow the rough a couple time more it should be just right.

While the course played well. There are still signs that we are just coming off of one of the wettest winters in recent years. The rough is brutal. Hit it straight ! Greens rolled nicely. All in all it was a great day.

The course was in good shape considering all of the rain we have had, good job staff. I started @ 11:45 and finished @ 4:15. The pace was good considering it was Friday, greens rolled nicely, but it seems as if only half of the people who golf here replace divots or repair ball marks. Overall a good day, shot an 86! Go early and finish early to avoid the crowds.

I've played this course many times. I know that in fall when the leaves fall its hard to find the ball if it goes even a few feet off the fairway. I played it recently and there were grass clippings all over the place. Not just that, there were white flowers everywhere too. It drove me crazy knowing I hit the ball only yard or so off the fairway and I had to drop it because we couldn't find it. I usually enjoyed this course but the conditions were pretty poor off the fairway. Another problem we experienced was a very muddy spot off the 11th hole where my friend stepped off the cart (we were on cart path only) and his leg sunk down mid calf in mud. Quite dangerous actually. He could have twisted something or worse off, broken his ankle or leg. I hope this is something the club can examine and correct because I do enjoy playing here, when the conditions are right.

I realize that they have had a ton of rain lately, but the fairways were horrible with the tall grass. A fair warning would have been appreciated, because we never would have played. We ended up quitting after 9 holes because we lost so many balls.

I played Foxtail North for the first time since it was called Mountain Shadows and I was very impressed by the improvements that have been made there. The test was a challenging one from the blue tees and, despite the large amount of rain we've received this year, the course was damp but far from saturated. The rough was lush and a fair but a formidable test and the fairways were great.

The greens were in excellent shape and rolled well and at a good speed, especially considering the wet weather.

The only area lacking is the bunkers but I was told they are making a sizeable investment to improve them and I look forward to returning to see it.

The layout is challenging with well placed bunkers, water hazards, and a variety of dog leg holes shaped by trees.

When I checked in, the man behind the counter treated me with an anti-Golfnow attitude, just because my teetime was a hot deal teetime. I am quite done with tolerating that kind of attitude in golf course staff. I suspect it begins at the management level. The management made the deal with GolfNow of its own free will. How foolish to discriminate against customers because they purchase teetimes made available on GolfNow by the course management!
