In a word - beautiful!

I love this course - it is a beautiful course with a wonderful open feel. It is well kept, well marked - the greens are fast and fun (but maybe need a little more maintenance?). The practice range is fine - but the range balls are terrible. Newer carts are very nice. Play moved right along. It is on my list to do again!!

Played as fast as the wind blew

Only saw one other group on the course all day and we flew around the course, almost literally with how hard the wind was blowing. Greens were huge and difficult but very nice and my only knock was all the clover everywhere. There were thousands of bee's with them all buzzing around you when you try to hit your shots. My wife is allergic so we had to keep moving her ball to an area where there was less clover which was not easy. Maybe spray some weed killer and get rid of it?? If nothing else at least in the fairways.

Back nine closed

At booking time the staff did not tell us the back nine was closed. Had to play the front twice. Love the course, did not enjoy not playing the back. Drove about 50 miles to play

Fun Course

I love this course. It is in great condition. There is a lot of tall grass which makes it challenging.

Worthwhile course

Very good condition. Goon variety of holes. Interesting greens. Wish there were more distance markers. Tough to walk 18 because of elevation changes.

What a Surprise!!

Didn’t know what to expect, first time playing this course I have never heard of or the city of Carson. First impression was great, the staff was very friendly, not fake friendly like you find at some courses. Nice driving range and putting green, balls were old and tired. I was going to walk the course, glad I rode. Front side fairly flat after #1, however back side was up hill, down hill, up hill...would have been a workout. If you hit a longer ball, play from the back tees, a great challenge but not crazy long. Fairways and tee boxes very nice, greens a little rough and bare in places...it’s still early in the year. Big rolling greens. Overall I loved this course, wish it was closer to home. It’s certainly a hidden gem with some great views!! Definitely will come back!!

Always a Pleasure

One of the best golf courses anywhere. The scenery is spectacular and the greens are the toughest in the Northwest. The course is unique in every respect. I’ll play there every chance I get.
