Nice course..fix the traps

Liked the course a lot. I'm a 16 and found the course pretty challenging for me. My only complaint is the sand? traps....some were rock hard, some had minimal sand over the rock hard, and some were like real sand traps. Had I been good enuf to stay out of the traps, I would have rated it much higher.

Consistently Poor Pace of Play

Beautiful course with some of the worst pace of play consistently. Well known for the entitled vacation golfer who doesn't let anyone pass. 5h 20m round in the wind. Greens were very slow with random speeds based on heavy sanding. Lost all momentum waiting behind a 4-some starting on hole 3. Found out they were having a group outing playing stroke play, with 20+ handicappers. Stroke play!... no string, no best drive... Saw this hacker hit 6 balls in the water on 4 from the drop then proceeded to play the rest of the hole. The Marshal was on 4 watching this and was the last time we saw him. We came to 18 and the whole group of 30 in this tournament (Never mentioned to us by the starter/staff) decided to sit by the bunkers on 18 and drunkenly yell as we were finishing. No Marshal present. Just more of the same pace of play neglect I've experienced before. Don't put "under 4 hour round" and print us checkpoint times if you aren't going to enforce them. Also... Irons only range sign? Can't pay 10 bucks more a day to have the range picker grab the deep balls which have to be hit ~300+. Plan for 5+ hours a round. Play if you can hit some odd hours and especially not holiday weekends. Prospector is not a bucket list course with how they currently treat the player experience.

sanded greens?

It was a great experience with several memorable holes except that for some reason the greens were sanded even though they are closing in 2 weeks. Didn't think it was right for them to charge the full rate with the greens in that condition. Other than that it was a good round, challenging, good views and a bit of wildlife around and signs of even more animals if you know what I mean.

Beautiful course

It was too wet and rainy to give a review. The greens held up well for the amount of moisture.

Good Job Arnold Palmer

The Prospector Course at Suncadia is a very well designed Woodland course cut right out of the forest. Very mature tall trees line the fairways so you need to keep it in the groove! However even the tree lines are well maintained so if your ball does go astray a little you might be able to find it. Going to be better play in the summer months. Truly a first class experience even down to a Valet to clean your clubs for you at the end of your round. Very wonderful experience and well worth the full rate. Can't wait to experience the Roperider course.

Pretty as the picture

Course condition was excellent. Very light play given the season. Pull out the driver & swing away, fairways are very forgiving.

Resort golf in the ponderosa pine forest

Well conditioned resort course located in a mature ponderosa plane forest. By resort course I mean a course that is playable by all levels. The fairways are wide enough for all and the greens are bunkered to challenge the proficient.
