Disclosure

They have three nines - one was closed & one was completely dead - was not worth striking a ball on it. Additionally the air quality was poor due to the grounds crew prepping the course for seeding- not to mention the noise. It would have been nice had they told us this when we called in to inquire about cart access on the fairways.

Condoball with a Wash

This is a Quirky layout taking you back and forth through the wash then looping around through clusters of condos. The second nine we played had recovered from overseeding and was in very nice shape whereas the front was still sparse and the greens were scrappy and too quick to enjoy. The black tees seem to be a desperate attempt to add yardage whether there was space or not. It grew on me though and I would come back if I had a decent deal again. The weather was perfect and I enjoyed whaling away on the driver on the really open wash holes.

Fun round

Arrived a bit early. Was greeted by friendly cart driver who pick up our clubs and brought them to the pro shop. Went into pay they greeted us by name they were very fast and efficient with payment and sent us to the tee box. Waited approx 5 minutes before being sent out early. Course was in great shape for time of year . Finished round in 3 hours. With no one pushing or feeling rushed. . Good round

West to North

Greens were in excellent condition, held and putted true.

Don't be fooled into thinking you can hit it up on the hills on the right and it will come down to the fairway. It won't, but you may find several balls while looking for yours. Just won't find yours.

White tees are fairly short, especially the par 3's and some 4's.

I'll play it again.

Easy layout but slow greens

The course was in pretty good condition considering it's late September. Played the West-North 9's but couldn't find the North 9 on my GPS watch.? Wasn't overly challenging but my wife liked it for ease of play. The greens seemed quite slow (shaggy?). but am comparing them to greens just played this week. It was an OK round

Maintenance

The course is challenging. A lot of hills and blind corners. The front 9 had course maintenance all over it so it was extremely loud which made it hard to focus. It is a complaint, but one i don't mind because it may have been hard to focus today due to the noise, I know that next time will be better because of what they did today. I had a great back nine much quieter. I can't wait to play this course again.

Poor Layout

Too many holes play in the wash on the North. South is better layout. Didn’t feel this was resort-worthy course so glad we played when rates were cheaper. Course conditions were acceptable for summer. Greens were nice but on the slow side.

RLP

Rode the Blacks on the West/South combo (6391/70.1/121) as a single in around 2H on a GN "Hot Deal" for less than $15. The weather was sunny, fairly calm and slightly above 100.

The condition of the tees was hit and miss. Some were nice and semi lush, others were ragged/thin. Several were crowned and could use leveling.

The fairways were semi lush and usually nice to play from. There are some thin patches, almost hard pan from the heat.

The rough was semi lush and was not overly penal. Good POP rough and good to chip out of.

The sand traps were decently maintained with fine grain, thick sand.

The greens were very firm and putted medium speed. Fairly bumpy with few ball marks.

The customer service from the pro shop & starter/cart person were excellent, as has been the case on every visit here. Grass range looked decent. No drink cart, but there was an operational snack stand at the turn. Recommended.
