We were surprised in a good way with course conditions. Fairways were above average, sand traps had sand, and greens were in great shape...except for the par threes...no one fixes their ball marks correctly, leaving scars. We were impressed and will be back.

We were unfriendly treated by the man at the front desk. We were assigned a golf cart with wet seats and asked to start our golf time at 7:30 am when we had time at. 07:56. It was dense fog and nothing was seen, drivingranges were also closed.

The golf car broke down after 16 holes.

We have played this often over the last 7 years. We always looked forward to going there. This year we were disappointed. The tees and greens were fair, but the fairways were real thin. Not what we were used to. Too Bad.

I checked in to the Pro Shop for my 1:08 slot; cashier saw that I booked through Golf Now (I know because he made the comment and then never looked me in the eye after that), printed my receipt and said, "Here ya go." I assume that he assumed I knew where I was going and that I didn't need any other info. What he didn't tell me was that the guy cleaning the carts at the barn was also the Starter. When I drove up to the 1st Tee Box, the guy cleaning the carts shows up in a cart with the RANGER sign on his cart and proceeds to ask me what I was doing. I'm thinking, 'didn't I just see you cleaning the carts in the barn as I drove by?' I told him I had a Tee Time and was taking my receipt to him when he starts on a rant about how he is the starter and nobody starts without checking in with him. I guess since I am not a regular their, I had some nerve to drive past the starter while he was cleaning carts. He sure let me know who was the Boss around there! This was my third time playing here, conditions got worse each time. Almost all of the Tee Boxes and Fairways deteriorated to bare ground (or worse in some cases). The Greens were green, but nobody ever repairs their divots! Literally dozens upon dozens of pitch marks on each Green. The Bunkers were in the worse shape of any I have played in recently. Absolutely no sand recently added to any that I saw, and none of them had been edged/trimmed for many months. Love the layout, but the conditions were horrible. It was also the first time in a long time that the 3-some in front of me wouldn't let a single play through. They looked back a me standing on the Tee Box on a number of different holes, but never made an attempt to let me pass. I could see some groups ahead of them at certain points, and absolutely nobody behind me. Would it have hurt them to at least acknowledge I was behind them waiting on every hole?? I thought about re-playing the front 9 to avoid the crowd, but I was afraid the cart cleaner/starter/ranger would chase me down for another scolding!

Slow greens and sparse fairways made this course a substantial letdown after playing it last Fall. Apparently, the frost and probably overuse mad tee boxes mainly sand and the fairways were the worse I have seen. This is normally a very nice course to play because of great drainage providing good conditions even in rainy season.

Played Silverthorn yesterday as I got some free money from GolfNow and the rate was decent. Have played here often in the past but was very disappointed at the course conditions this time. Looked like they haven’t watered in a week or more. The greens were decent but not very smooth so putts bounced quite a bit. Usuallly a decent course but not this time.

They had an 8:00 shotgun, and although they let a league off on the back nine before we made the turn, we still managed to finish in 3:50. The course was in great shape, except for the greens, very slow. All in all a very pleasant day.

This is a very nice course in an area that is booming with new communities.I first played this course before the development started but the housing doesn't effect play.It is not an overly difficult course ,water comes into play on 4 or 5 holes ,many of the par 4's are doglegs and the par 3's are not long.The one thing that could be better is faster greens .The grounds crew are friendly so maybe the pro shop staff and started should learn customer service from them.Pace of play was not bad but there were no pairing of singles or twosomes and no ranger to speed up the slow groups.Still worth a place to play,especially with a Hot Deal round.

A beautiful day with rain in the forecast, so not a lot of golfers in the afternoon. Course was in great shape as usual. T-boxes, fairways and greens we're in excellent condition which is usually the case. Staff as well as the Starter were very friendly. I play a lot of different courses in the area, but Silverthorn is one of my favorites.
