Greens had been punched 2 weeks prior to our round, so they were in fair condition and difficult to putt. Fairways haven't really grown in yet, so conditions were only fair. A very difficult layout with significant elevation changes. Distance control and shot placement are paramount as this is really a "target" type of course. Staff was very friendly and being in the mountains, there were some nice views.

It’s a mountain course early in the season, so I’m hoping that’s the reason for the conditions. There was very little grass, even in the fairways and on the greens. I considered stopping mid round, bc I was afraid of damaging my clubs. Otherwise, it’s a fun, challenging course with a ton of elevation changes and blind shots. Good scenery and lots of wildlife.

The Lake Arrowhead course is nicely laid out with well-manicured greens (we only played 9 holes; greens punched with small holes but not top dressed so putts ran quite fast but smooth and true). Our sole complaint was the absence of fringe around many greens which caused shots to roll off into bunkers and, due to elevated greens, some difficult and treacherous rough/hazards. Having a great GolfNow discount helped with our frustration here.

Course challenging under normal conditions but windy and in 50’s especially. Had a great time. For winter with little bit of sand on greens but overall putted good and will probably be very good for spring. Played a twosome and did not have to wait on one hole. Good deal on cost today. Course is a challenging layout and requires the ability to carry the ball over a range of hazards. While playing a closer tee box will be of assistance for the high handicapper the course maybe be a bit more than you want, but leave that up to you. Beautiful layout and can not wait to play course in spring time. This is a championship design type course and is every bit as enjoyable to play as any Robert Trent Course in Hilton Head or elsewhere.

Played Friday @ 2. 78 degrees for February. Can it get any better? Fairways grass is dormant this time of year no matter where you go. Greens were in great shape for this type of year. 1st time out and the price was right. I'm going again this friday. Beautiful setting, great staff, nice amenities!

Course quite challenging from white tees on cold day. I hit ball about 230 off tee (warm day)and was striking it pretty good the day I played and course was all I wanted in terms of challenging. Course is just over 6000 yards from white and played much longer. In summer I would imagine plays shorter. Note that there are a number of ravines or hazards that must be carried therefore if one is used to running ball on ground and hitting it low this course might be extra challenging. The beauty of the layout can even be appreciated in January. I am looking forward to playing it in the spring which our group plans to do. Having local knowledge would be helpful ie on first hole, par 5 I was not sure what to hit so hit a 5 iron which was just right as I came to within 15-20 yards of ravine. Did not know how far second ravine so I punched6 iron and then hit 5 iron to green from about 155 ( I hit 5 iron 175-180 on warm day) so again played longer than I thought it would. All holes were unique and interesting and enjoyable. There are several short par 3’s but also several that were 190 but played longer. I struck a utility club (hit 190-200)on all of long ones and made good contact and was short both times.
