Fun course

Fun course. We played the silver as we had never played there before and it was a little short for us. Overall really enjoyed the course.

Very Nice Sierra Course

This course is beautiful and pretty well maintained. Like any mountain course there is some draining issues that they will hopefully figure out one day. So you do have to deal with too soft greens and maybe losing a ball in a mud pit. Despite that one thing this course is awesome and I will be back. PS 30 balls does not a large bucket make!

Needs Help

I love this course. It's a short, but challenging, layout. They have a myriad of maintenance issues however. It wasn't mown, the fairways were patchy, the bunkers nearly unplayable and the greens were very slow. I heard they hired a new Pro and maintenance man so I wish them luck. I was fortunate that there was very few golfers out so I completed my 18 holes in 2:10!,

Awesome course

This is a gorgeous looking course, it's very hilly and has lots of elevation changes, and I like that.

There is a lot of wildlife and the scenery is awesome.

Nice Course

Enjoyed the “Home” course today. Well groomed, a few wet spots, but that’s because of the heat they are trying to cope with. Will be playing it next week. Kirk

Hate that I love it!!

Its in a neighborhood I dont like. There are rich, rude, snobby; blue haired uptights all around. But god darn do I love playing this course!! The conditions are excellent. The holes a pretty diverse. Its close to home, and the price is right... I just have to learn to deal with the A holes that play and live around there.

Becoming my favorite course in the area

Great layout, at a great price, in great condition, and I finished my round in 3:45. Looks like they have been polishing this hidden gem.

Beats the Valley Heat

nice Escape from the Valley heat. A few degrees cooler... shade available and a bit of a breeze. Few players during the week makes for a well paced round.

Mad mud

Alot of the holes was saturated, only hole I really disliked was the 18th even though I somehow managed to par. Definitely a summer course but I still recommend this course.

Great day. Course is in good condition for early season. Tight course.....short in yardage, but requires precise quality shots.
