Greens were excellent, bunkers were good. Fairways a bit firm , tee boxes are in rough shape. Some good value , staff is great, worth checking out if in the area. Not super gimmicky but still many blind shots necessitate some course knowledge or a bit of driving around which is a bit tiresome.

This course is severely affected by the drought.<br/> The greens were excellent - the best seen here in 20 years, and far better than at Greenhorn or Saddle Creek (all three courses played the same weekend).

The Mnt Springs fairways were hardpan. They obviously have decided to water the greens, and they were perfect.

The course, as usual, was very tough. Bring your game.

I play generally this course twice a week. Lots of up and down, sloped fairways and elevated greens. The course never plays the same twice given shot variation and roll. The greens are in great shape. Some of the bunkers could use some work, best to avoid these anyway. Great views and vistas.

It really is (or was) a nice course. the lack of care and attention is taking its toll. Sand traps are uncared for and overgrown. Fairways are very dry and grass is dying. Tee boxes are in need of some care as well. Pace of play is extremely slow as there is no players assistants or marshals to be seen. very frustrating !!

Recommend you ask at the clubhouse for a yardage book before you play; if you've never played here, this one will eat you up.<br/> Built through the rolling hills, you'll hardly get a level lie.<br/> After you finish the brutal 9th, and swear youll never play here again, pauseonthe back and listen. Few places we can go and hear......... Nothing<br/> Really cool.

Got a great deal on GolfNow. Awesome staff. Had lunch before our round. The 1/2 lb hamburger was great. Hand cut fries! Wife had the chicken sandwich on ciabatta bread with a side salad. She loved it. Great service.

The practice range was ok. Hit from mats on highly elavated platform. Helped with loosening up & impact, but not distance. Range balls were old & need of replacement.

Course conditions were very nice. The greens were spongy & stuck very well. Could spin the all pretty easily & they were some of the I have seen in awhile. The fairways were cut nicely, but extremely sloped & challenging. You must place the all well off the tee or suffer the consequences. The traps had nice soft sand in them but needed work cutting them in & shaping them. They lacked definition. But, fairly easy to exit out of. Many blind shots off the tee & a ton of side hill / up hill / down hill lies. Anything out of the fairway is trouble.

Synopsis:<br/> If you are looking for a very nice course, priced right, with lots of challenge, then this is a must play. Novices will struggle here & probably quit after 9 holes. But, the price is worth 9 holes. I will play here again & manage the course differently. The yardage book was given to us, & helped tremendously.

I shot a 79 & the wife gave up after 9. My handicap is a 7.

After many years of playing in the flat valley .... this course was very challenging but FUN. I loved all the elevated tees ... and loved the yardage of the par 3s especially. If not familiar with the course .. it has a lot of blind shots. The pro shop was kind enough to give us a course yardage book. Our pace of play was "perfect" until we got to the 10th hole and suddenly found a man and his (beginner) son on the tee in front of us. They were NOT in front of us on the front nine ... so we thought this was quite rude not to mention it slowed our pace of play noticeably as we now had to wait on each tee. We did quit after hole #12, partly because my husband wasn't feeling well, but mostly because we were now having to wait for a twosome who had obviously cut in front of us. Other than that I thought it was fun to play but quite strenuous with the severe slopes on the course.Even with all the up and down holes I felt it was still very playable, even for a high handicapper like me.

I have played this course a number of times and really like the course. Last time was a bit of slow play ahead of us. We were only 2 players so it was to be expected a bit. So we had some wait time and decided on the 7th hole to take a bit more time. We were confronted with the Marshall to pick up the pace. We asked if the players ahead of us were told the same and they told us no. I didn't understand why we had to play fast and wait so long. My guess is the group of 4 behind us complained. While we waited for the group ahead of us we filled divots at the tee to help keep it in good shape. We heard the locals, the 4 behind us getting upset. We had to wait anyway for the group in front. So needless to say we ended up sailing our balls over their heads. They need a better Marshall. We appoligized to the group in front of us because we were told to play faster. All the other times playing there we had no issues.<br/> I hope they see this review.

Greens are best in the foothills with well maintained fairways, Bunkers need a little TLC but not a huge factor. Challenging hilly course with open layout. If new to the course use the score card for info on how best to play each hole. Some blind t shots but not a huge issue with the right shot. Walkable course if you like a challenge. Pace of play is usually less than 4 hours. Staff is friendly and helpfull.

Some of the best golf around for a reasonable price.
