First time playing the course and the layout has many great and memorable holes. The tees are very well marked on the cart path and the fairways were in good shape. Greens had recently been punched but are coming back nicely and were medium speed. Views of Laughlin casinos and the surrounding area are outstanding. Bunkers are terrible but are scheduled to be reworked in the next couple of months. A great course to play when in the Laughlin area but certain times of the year it can be a little pricey. Look on Golf Now for potential deals. Highly recommend. Finally saw wild burros on a couple of holes on the back nine.

Played for the first time at 1230 on 4/21/18. First off, the golf now tee time said the price included range balls. When I checked in the attendant said it didn’t. I rechecked my reservation and it clearly said it did but the attendant said it was an issue between me and golfnow. So right off the bat they basically stole $11 from me. We got paired up with another twosome. They had the exact same range ball surcharge issue. Not a great first impression.

It took two hours to finish 6 holes. There were three groups waiting to tee off on the par 3 7th. Took just under three hours to finish nine holes. My buddy and I decided to replay the first three holes at the turn just to try to get some value out of our green fees so I can’t comment on the back nine...we just never saw it. As we were leaving, the attendant asked how our round was and we told him about the pace of play. He said there was a large group who played that morning on a “free replay” deal and they were probably the hold up during our round since they were being sent out between groups for their second 18. Whether or not that is true, six hours to play 18 holes is unacceptable.

The bunkers were straight up rocks. No sand at all. If you hit out if them, you will certainly damage your clubs.

The greens weren’t terrible, but for the price they charge, they are in poor condition.

Practice area was nice although they bait and switch you to extort a few extra dollars to use it.

The cart girl came around three times (although the front nine took forever so it makes sense that we saw her three times) but literally only had snickers and potato chips to eat. I’ve never seen such a poorly stocked cart at any course of any quality.

I would NOT recommend this course. It’s sad because it is a nice property with some fun holes, but it was so poorly run, I would have rather played a local muni.

Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere until the management gets their act together.

The course was in good shape and I would recommend playing it except for the so called "waste areas." Many of these so called waste areas were actually sand bunkers without sand as evidenced by the rack adjacent to the bunkers. Additionally, the so called sand in the bunkers that were suppose to be truly sand bunkers, was so bad it actually damaged the face of my club.

Over priced. I have been playing this course since it opened. I come to Laughlin 3 times a year to play golf. I play golf 5 days per trip. At $100 a round I can only play the ranch once.

Played early and hot temperature was not a factor. Tee boxes in good shape and so were the greens but the traps were terrible.. It appeared as if the traps were not taken care of since the hot weather began as they were either not raked, weeds and grass were growing and in some there was literally no sand and the ball was lying on hard packed ground or small rocks. To avoid damaging the clubs we picked up out of the traps and chipped up over the trap. the other party with us (single) did the same. Very nice course otherwise.

Greens and fairways in excellent shape for late winter.

Bunkers have no sand, just rocks and hardpan. Play it as an unplayable lie.

15 handicappers should play the silver tees. While shorter, it's still a challenge.

Restaurant staff is friendly, food is good.

Nice clubhouse.

Course was immaculate! Especially liked the undulating greens. Excellent conditions tee to green. Only negative is the price. As nice as it is, it's not worth $100 when compared to dozens of courses I play in Las Vegas & Phoenix area. I still have to give it 5 stars for the golf experience.
