It is what we thought it was

I’ve played this course a lot in the past and hadn’t been back in a while. Great Hot Deal rate on Thanksgiving Day. Had the course to ourselves. The sand traps were saturated which made sand shots difficult. Otherwise it’s a forgiving course in a nice setting. Is play again on a hot deal.

Nice location

the course is located nicely the middle of the mountains and it well maintained. I played from GOLD which was somewhat easy. I am sure the tips are more challenging.
All in all it was a deal for the money.

Nice open course, some challenging holes. It's long.

My home course. The folks there are very accommodating. The fairways don't roll very fast and the greens are medium speed. Pin placements are challenging. It's a great course for the money.

No More Cart Path Only

Course now fully open after overseeding. Pace of play was good. Greens rolling true and fast. Fairways fair to good. Second cut could be lower, as balls can nestle-down, making it tough for a controlled shot. Sand traps appeared to be sufficiently filled. Tee boxes most-definitely needed some TLC. Overall,, beautiful day on the Foothills golf course .... worth the 1 hour drive.

Tom Wieskopf Design

Great track, played on a monday with not very many people out there. Starter sent me off as a single and got to play alone which was great. Finished 18 in 3 hours which was amazing. Great course conditions, the greens are very true and views are awesome. Very lowkey track. Jeff Simon in the pro shop is a great man as well.

A Little Worn on the Edges, but a Nice Track

Rumor has it that the course is challenged with maintaining the course within its water allowance. Nevertheless, the fairways and greens are generally in good, playable condition. This is not always true in the summer months, but right now everything is in good shape. Some areas off the playing surface could stand a bit more attention, but for the price, the course is a nice way to spend the afternoon.

Foothills was a steal.

First time playing Foothills, Course fairways & greens were in amazing shape..
I honestly enjoyed my entire experience. The only small complaint is the rough needs to be cut down a bit more, I think. Made it difficult if you didn’t find the fairway off your tee shot
Good job guys.
I’ll definitely be coming back.

Drive In Second Cut

Course, overall, was in good shape after the overseeding for the winter/spring seasons. Tee boxes needed some TLC, fairways were good, greens were smooth and true, though the last 4 holes seemed not to have been on the same cutting schedule and were shaggy, thus slow. I was happy to see sufficient sand in the traps (though sorry to have visited so many). The Cart Path Only condition came with permission to drive in the rough, facilitating a much faster round (3 hrs. and 40 minutes for our foursome). Worth the drive....

Foothills

Course was in good shape, and not real busy, but there were some slow groups. I got lost on the way there, so ended up getting there after my scheduled tee time, but there was no problem getting me out.
