Would it kill you to have water and ball washers???

No water or ball washers to be found ANYWHERE on the course. It's bad enough that though all the snow's been gone now for 8 weeks, they've only repaired ONE of the badly-damaged greens. (And even that repair, on 16, has suffered because the new surface has completely dried out. That raging river cruising through the course doesn't suggest there's water for you to use?) Strange how the greens are all dry, dead, and mostly-bare ... but the bunkers are wet and heavy.

Summer's here, guys -- GET YOUR ACT IN GEAR!

Course Should Be Closed Until It Recovers From Harsh Winter

The course is essentially unplayable. The greens are horrific. Nice scenery. Could be fun to play if it were not in such terrible condition. They should wait until the course recovers to open it up for play.

Not playable

Course is in the worst shape I’ve ever scene. They took my money, but didn’t tell us that the course was unplayable. Worst greens I’ve ever played.

Winter blues: 4 temporary greens

I hate giving this course three stars, because the layout is so cool and this place represents everything good about muni golf. It's a scenic, fun round that's affordable in an area where no other courses are.
But, with four temporary greens coming out of a hard winter, I just can't give it the love in the ratings it might deserve later in the year. When I first played the course several years ago, it had lost three fairways to a tough winter, so this issue is not new.
The holes that interact with the Truckee River are special. It's apparent that William Bell routed the holes to reveal and showcase the surrounding mountain peaks. It's a great walk, and good condition or bad, it's a place I'll recommend to anyone.

Staff Reception Offsets 4 Temporary Greens

From the pro shop staff, the starter, the ambassadors and the cart staff, everyone one exuding a positive and welcoming attitude. 4 temporary greens but a three hour round starting around noon on a perfect day. And the backdrop off the mountains. If you live or visit up here, why play anywhere else.

Course in dreadful condition

I have been playing golf for 40 years and I have never left mid round because of the course conditions. It is in the worse condition of a golf course I have ever played. The people we played with said “what do you expect, it was recently under 8 feet of snow”.
The greens had large bare patches and there was no evidence of them being reseeded. The tees were very mixed from ok to poor. On the fairways there were also lots of poorly grassed areas so I just moved the ball.
Avoid until it has recovered.

Last Day of Summer .. Started too Late

We got a reservation through GolfNow for 2:44 pm but arrived to find out there were no carts available. We went to the snack bar and bought a polish dog for $5.99 that was pretty mediocre. After that we loaded our Sunday bags into the cart and got paired up with another twosome. We tee’d off the Silver Tees as husband and wife who have rather high handicaps .. the other twosome played back on the black tees. The course is entirely flat and mostly wide but with a lot of trees, wetlands and protected areas. We thought it was an ok course, but after the turn we got really bunched up and since our game wasn’t up to par and the wait was too long as well as the September afternoon shadows we decided to quit at 13. Would try this course again .. on a discounted tee time but earlier in the day.

City Course With a Nice Layout

My wife and I played this given its reasonable price along with proximity to where we were staying. Generally speaking, it was a decent course with nice layout. The greens were okay; more golfers should fix their divots. I probably will not play it again given other choices in the area.

Longggg day

The course is excellent and very long. Greens all in very good conditions. My only complaint is 5 1/2 hour round. They were
packed and we understand that but waited on every hole. The guys infro t of us were excellent players but they had to wait on every hole. All in all a great course maybe a later in the day course.
