Style Desert
Par 72
Length 7258 yards
Slope 139
Rating 73.9

John Fought and Tom Lehman collaborated on the course at Verrado Golf Club, a voluptuous design that meanders through the old Caterpillar bulldozer proving grounds. It's up and down for 18 holes and that doesn't mean "chip and a putt." The course is good test with chances to score and a handful of memorable and scenic holes.

Where Verrado Golf Course will eat you alive is in the bunkers. Some bunkers are hard to carry, others collect wayward shots. But the fairways are wide enough to avoid trouble, and what appears to be the safe shot off the tee will often bring greenside bunkers more into play. So pick your poison.

While the back nine is far superior to the front, going out still has its fair share of memorable holes. A huge boulder 30 feet tall on the par-4 eighth jets out from the left side around which the fairway shapes itself. A perfect line from the tee box is to take the ball five yards right off its edge, but hitting the boulder is certain death by desert. The boulder was scheduled to crumble via dynamite, but stood up to the TNT and was deemed an immoveable object. Open and playable for all skill levels, the Verrado Golf Club is a sublime experience.

Course is good test. Bar and Grill needs to be more customer oriented and ensure if there are specials posted on golf carts that they are in effect.

Our group played the Saturday before over seeding at Verrado. Even though the fairways were being prepped for over seeding, the course was still beautiful and great fun to play. The scenery is breathtaking as you travel the path through the mountains. The only problem we had occurred after play when we went to the restaurant. While we were playing we commented on the large signs posted on the back of the carts advertising happy hour with 1/2 price appetizers and we had decided to stay and eat there rather than going elsewhere. We ordered drinks and inquired about happy hour and we were told there was no happy hour on Saturdays. When we asked why the cart advertising specified happy hour was on Mondays thru Sundays, we were told that it was no longer true. One of our group then went to the pro shop to inquire why it was posted on the carts and he was told also that it was not true and nothing could be done about it. Ten minutes had since gone by and we were still waiting for our drinks. When another ten minutes passed, and as we watched one person after another walk to the bar to get drinks, we decided that the chances of getting anything to eat would be pretty slim. We left and found a very nice Italian restaurant in the town square to eat in. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to eat after playing Verrado. I would also suggest that management take the time to remove the cart advertising while the course is closed.

Still in great shape

Taking all the precautions. To the point of no scorecards or pencils., You will have to use an app..They have cut a piece of PVC pipe and put it in the holes to hold up the ball. It does not work so well. Pool noodles or putting the cup in the ground upside down works much better. The course is in good shape tee to green. . Enjoy..

Great course!. Fair job w/COVID-19.

Always a good time at The Verrado courses. Lots of cautions put in place to "StopThe Spread." It's appreciated.

BUT, water jugs and Cart Girls should not be present. They ARE NOT present in my home club. Please tighten this up. We don't want to lose this activity for the sake of our sanity.

Verrado Golf

Beautiful Course - but it plays like a man course - if you don't stay in middle of fairway balls roll off into out of bounds on almost every hole, even some of the greens, it's like they are falling off a table. it's only for experts.

A real golf course

Not for beginners or new golfers You have to make good shot decisions and good shots. If you’re not to that point in your game bring 2 dz balls and be ready for this course to eat your lunch.
