Nice course but pay attention to the layout

Nice challenging course, pretty views and well maintained. The transitions between a couple of the holes is a bit confusing, first time golfers will wish there were a few more signs pointing the correct directions. On hole 3 you can see the “green” but it’s actually a practice putting green, and the actual green is hidden. Just pay attention to the map on the card and everything will be ok.

Slow play

5 groups of 6-8 people each. 4 hours for 12 holes. Ridiculous!! Good staff but they need to work on groups of 4 every 10 minutes like other courses in the area.

This is the 2nd time we have played this course. It was a terrible experience last year with the staff and how rude they are. So we thought we would try it again this year with hopes it would be better. However they treated us the same. This time they were actually worse. My family and I will never go back there.

Just say no to the back 9!

I have played the front 9 before, but this was my first time on the new back 9. Oh wow, did they make an awful back 9! I can't express this enough. That is the worst 9 holes I've seen in my life. I will bet my house that their pro can't hit par on that back 9! If you want to lose a bunch of golf balls and have no landing areas, then this back 9 is for you. It also looks completely messy and unfinished, like they rushed to get it open. No thanks. I"m never paying to play boulder canyon again.

Uneasy

Three golfers behind us got a little bit in a hurry. One golf ball came within 5 feet from where I was standing. I was not a happy Golfer. Other then that It was a great day and we had a lot of fun.

Back Nine Needs Maturing

The front nine is the original course, and it is in good shape. #7 requires a long enough drive to see the green; otherwise, the second shot is blind due to the fairway taking a 90 degree turn. The back nine is challenging. At this point, the greens are hard and grainy and landing areas require some accuracy. #17 requires a carry of about 220 to reach the fairway from the blue tees, further for the black. You have to be precise to the landing areas. Cart paths at this point are mostly gravel on the back nine, and a bit rough.

New Back Nine is a dogtrack

We have played the original 9 holes many times - a mature course in decent condition. Maintenance seems to always be an issue with the original 9.

We played the back nine for the first time and were extremely disappointed. Poor layout as if the course designer/architect had no experience in course layout. Fairways were rough to the point of bouncing the kidneys and liver inside you. New nine has few course markings to show where the next Tee Box - ugh. Nothing but rocks for cart paths. On one hole, the drive must be hit through 3 high-line wires and 3 utility support wires in the middle of the fairway. Extremely disappointed in the new nine and will never play it again.

week day

The pace was good, since not too many golfers out at 8 am. There was a very slow group in front of my two-sum but they were very kind and let us play thru.

Course in pretty good shape, they finally got workers signed on and doing the mowing.... All the greens are very good shape which is surprising after a winter.

Plan to play it a few times this season
