Blind shots

Course was in great shape. But all the blind shots makes it very difficult to play.

Outstanding Service!

From the first person to the last everyone was smiling and helpful. The tee boxes and fairways were in very good condition but the greens were a little inconsistent.

Great Course and Value

The course was in excellent condition. Greens were fast and true.
Had a rain delay and hung out at the Grille. Great food and the prices where great.
Recommend this course to play and will return in the future. The course is a great value for the price.

Extremely Disappointing

My wife and I were looking forward to playing here as we had read so many positive reviews about this course. Additionally, I had read about this course in a golf digest article. Wow were we disappointed with our experience at Sewailo and are unlikely to return. We are from Las Vegas and play at least once a week all over the Vegas valley. Additionally we have played a number of courses on Indian reservations and are sad to say this one was much different than the rest.

I have numerous complaints before our round even started:
1) Guy in clubhouse mentioned they offer "free range balls that are PREMIUM callaway balls." Get up to range and they are legitimately the cheapest and most scuffed up callaway balls you have seen. Definitely not premium.
2) Some girl decked out in University of Arizona gear literally acted like she owed the chipping green and was using the entire thing including every ball on the green. Guessing she plays for U of A or something, but still...you can be courteous to other patrons of the course.
3) No free bottles of water included with round. I know it is only 75-80 degrees outside, but it is still the desert. Don't be cheap. I'm sure you give out free water in your casino right on the property.
4) No rags/towels for cleaning clubs provided. When I asked the starter about towels he rudely told me I could go clean my clubs in the club cleaner up at the range before the round. Funny part was the club cleaner had not an ounce of water in it. Real cool.
5) Starter then gives us a lecture about keeping up the pace of play and that "they will be watching us from the clubhouse based off of our GPS to make sure we are not slowing anyone down."

Now about the on course experience (keep in mind it is "Prime Season" for courses in the southwest):
1) Layout way actually pretty neat. This is the only reason I gave this course 2 stars instead of 1.
2) Fairways were absolutely waterlogged. Every shot with an iron left every single groove of your club filled with dirt. Sometimes even had a nice spray of dirt all over your legs. Would've been nice to have a club cleaning towel for this.
3) Rough was hard as concrete and grass pretty much non-existent. I know everyone blames this on "Bermuda grass" and it not flourishing this time of year. Well there are plenty of courses in Vegas which have Bermuda and still have decent rough. Maybe they could water the rough more and the fairway less?
4) Greens were absolutely garbage. Multiple greens had an incredible amount of divots (sometimes exceeding 3-400). Greens were also waterlogged to the point of walking leaving footprints that remained.
5) Pace of play was good on the front nine. Once we made the turn we got stuck behind a four-some which had no group ahead of them. The pace of play became so slow that the two groups behind us decided to play as a six-some and were still able to push into my wife and I while we were only playing as a twosome. Funny how the starter gave us a lecture about keeping up the pace of play. Didn't see a single ranger on the course the entire round.
6) Cart girl on the course tells us she needs to see our ID's before we even ask to order drinks. What if we didn't want any? Honestly this is the first time I have ever been carded on a golf course and have probably played at least 500+ rounds since I turned age 21 many years ago.

To be completely honest, I am concerned many of the reviews written about this course are actually written by the owners/staff to bring in business. Not sure how so many people have said such great things about it when in reality it is lacking in multiple areas on and off the course.

I would value this round of golf at $25 tops. Much better courses which are in better condition in town.

Beautiful and fun layout

This is a really nice course that was in near perfect condition. Thankfully, I got to play with someone who had played there multiple times before because he was able to give me a lot of tips. The staff is excellent and they really kept up the pace of play.

Great club

Challenging course with several tee positions for all levels. Lots of traps protect the greens. Definitely worth a round when in the area.

Beautiful setting, wrong time of year for us.

I do love the beauty of this course. The water surrounding the course is simply magnificent - the small streams and the waterfall on the 18th complimented the vibrant green grass perfectly. Our only issue was the timing: October. Due to overseeding, We couldn’t drive our carts in the fairways so that completely takes you out of your game because you would have to walk from the cart paths to your ball with each shot. We took over 13,000 steps! And our round too 5 hours!
Under the right conditions, I definitely recommend this course.

Love this track!!!

Great layout, challenging to take shortcuts. What happened to tees they gave/had on driving range? What happened to complimentary bottled water on golf carts? Teed off at 7am.. didn't see a beverage cart till 16th hole!!!
