Great play at a great price
This course drives one crazy with the continuous challenges laid out in a mountain environment. The course is difficult and fast and the greens are very in very good condition. The only complaint is there is a bit of moisture in the low areas of the fairways.
The staff are friendly and its easy to get a decent tee time especially if you go through golf now.
Fun mountain track!
Fun mountain course with great views and some challenging approach shots. Add in some killer quesadillas, festive drinks and a friendly staff for a nice outing.
Warm up on the flats for nine and then go crazy on the the back where you will experience crazy target golf and elevation changes. Stunning views. Super friendly staff. Value priced.
Best deal around
Staff/owner was very friendly and outgoing. Course was beautiful and just challenging enough.
Hot. It good
Love the course. In great shape. It was a hot day (90,s) but had a lovely time. Just keep hydrated! 18th amazing! A true par 6. With two revenues to cross - was quite a challenge
Great course-Very hilly
Leaving most greens requires a 25 foot uphill climb. Otherwise course is great.....
Course was in great shape and the views are amazing!!! Friendly staff and the course wasn’t busy. It’s like having a private course all to your self!!!!
Wonderful round today. Playing solo at 2 there was no one else on the course. Had the place to myself.
Greens are in good condition, the course is a bit short on water where water would be, but that just allows you to play through a couple mistakes.
Love the elevated tee boxes, Canyons and the views are spectacular. Looking forward to my next round
Overall great views, fast & true greens, wide open and not a lot of other golfers, lots of slope and elevated tee boxes, just some wet and swampy fairways, and it hadn’t even recently rained. 10/10 besides the soggy fairway spots.
Very surprised by the negative reviews. We loved the course, the elevation changes can be a challenge but are a good test. Pace of play was very good, under 4 hours. A few greens had some rough spots but overall the course was in fantastic shape. 18th hole was so fun, hitting into a very small green that you can't see was a great way to end the day.
Its been several years since I have played this course but I feel that it has gone down hill a lot since then. I will say the greens were in really nice shape overall, but the fairways and tee-boxes were terrible. There were some really dry and hard patches in the fairways then some spots that were so wet you could hardly walk on them. The cart paths are trashed now and just in overall really bad shape. It's a bummer because its a cool layout, just in rough condition overall.
early season but the course conditions were rather poor. not very green, lots of brown patches, kitchen was closed the day I was there. not sure they have a full bar, only beer.
The views and course design are exceptional!! as good as any mountain course I have played. but the conditions of the course and lack of snack bar left me somewhat disappointed
Thank you for playing Lakota. The course will green up and will be in great condition once we get some consistent sun and warmer temperatures. Please come see us in a few weeks. We have a brand new clubhouse and new management that will opening the restaurant and bar. We do offer a full bar and will have a much wider food selection within a few weeks.

Not worth the money
Very disappointed after just playing Redlands Mesa the day before. Description of the course layout needs to be provided via an updated GPS system or a detailed map. At a minimum, the course should install 150 yd markers. I often use them to understand where to safely aim when not familiar with a course. Flags should always be visible. Hole 18 is a perfect example. Neither the green or flag was visible from the drive. Being only 170 yds out, the flag should have been visible to allow me to weigh the risk and reward of the next shot. Neither the scorecard or the GPS provided enough information to understand the layout of the hole. First cut immediately off the greens was patchy and clumpy. Course had an irrigation problem. Some areas were dry, hard, and thin while many were so wet and spongy that the carts damaged the fairways if driven over them. Drives plugged in these areas. Balls had to be moved to drier areas to get solid footing. Grass along the cart path was not cut and balls were easily lost. Overall, course management needs to be improved. No clubhouse or restaurant.
Save your money
This is a typical Jim Engh course you either love it or hate it. You would need to play a few times to know where to place your shots. The front nine had some irrigation issues in the fairway and very wet lies were the norm. If you are out of shape I would go somewhere else because you are climbing up and down the whole round. My three playing partners enjoyed it but I won't be coming back anytime soon.
Do NOT waste your time
We had a group of 12 for a guys weekend of golfing. We had arranged tee times several months in advance with agreed upon green fees. The pro shop staff was less than hospitable and came across irritated that we had a discounted rate. They overcharged the first person and then the coordinator in our group mentioned the group rate and he claimed there was nothing he could do. I've already processed it....and just stared at us. Ended up giving us range tokens for the difference. Everyone in the facility acted as if they were new, untrained, and lost, with a complete lack of any sense of customer service.
When we got on the course the only pleasant personality was the drink cart girl. We were harassed by Craig (the Marshall) telling us to speed it up; that groups behind us were calling him complaining about slow play. We later asked about that and were told the GPS units on our carts would advise us if we were playing behind schedule and not a single cart had that notice.
Another employee at the course later admitted that Craig is always a jerk and he just wanted us to speed up because he wanted to go home early.
The course was in good shape and a very nice layout but the service and treatment completely ruined the experience. I would advise to steer clear of this place until some wholesale staff changes are made.
Thank you for taking your time to send in your comments. We are very unhappy to hear about your negative experience with the staff. We are undergoing a transition there but that is no excuse for poor customer service. I would love to talk to you more about your trip. Please email me at info@LakotaCanyonRanch.com
