I dont know what happened between Eric's review and mine but this course was in terrible shape today. 820 tee time $60.

The Tee Boxes were absolutely horrible. Uneven and weeds growing everywhere. Fairways not much better with many types of grass and dirt and brown patches everywhere. Reminded me of Shorecliffs.

Sand and rough were not good either the rough was long and penal if in the Kikuyu otherwise it was dirt. Sand very inconsistent and un-raked (not the courses fault)

The only thing in good shape on this course are the greens although they were a bit shaggy they are very consistent and rolled true. A quick mow and i'd rate them a 9.

ProShop and starter were super friendly and we were told that we had nobody behind us for at least an hour. That turned out to be true but in front of us were the slowest 2 groups I have ever seen. No marshall to push them so we took our sweet time and probably played 21 holes after replaying a few holes to leave a gap on the 2 groups a head

I dont recommend for more than $20 right now
Drove out to play Soboba this morning and check out the new holes and casino status.
Paid 50 dollars online to play at 8am which is tough to find anywhere in Orange County on a weekend.
Greens were very heat damaged and had many bare spots forming on them although they did roll decently and were about medium speed. The two best greens on the course were the two new greens on 15 and 16 which were smoother, faster, and firmer than the rest. Fairways were awful. Flat out hard dirt mixed with crab grass patches, never seen the fairways like this out here, again with the new holes being the exception and having solid coverage. We played bump lies in the fairway all day, Id say you had about 10% chance of finding good grass in the fairways today. Bunkers continue to be great out here with good heavy sand. Rough was okay, hit or miss.
The redesigned holes out by the casino look really nice right now, but they really don't fit in well with the rest of the course. Its not that I dont like the holes, I think they're great. While most of the course has tall mature trees along the fairways, the new holes have only small new tress no taller than 5 feet and native grass with flowers around the fairways that reminds me of the Links at Summerly type of design. I am pretty excited to come back in early Spring and check out the conditions, casino, and see if the course starts to grow together with the new holes as the surroundings grow and the condition become more even.
Rode the Blacks (6720/72.1/127) with Bill mid day in around 3H using Forelinx. The weather was around 100, sunny with a little breeze.

The Bermuda tees were nicely maintained.

The Bermuda fairways were lush and very nice to play from.

The Bermuda rough is lush/thick. Tough to play longer clubs from. Good length, high enough to be penal, not so high as to slow POP with lost ball challenges every time you enter it.

The sand traps were excellent. Fine quality sand and very nicely maintained.

The Bermuda greens putted medium speed and were smooth/consistent/firm. No tiers or huge mounds to navigate, but I rarely had a straight putt.

Enjoy this conventional 36-36=72, four par 5 and four par 3 layout. The front is almost 300 yards shorter with a couple of risk/reward par 4's. Tight in places, but still mostly generous landing areas. It would still be a good choice for players of all skill levels. Definitely not a course to walk, many holes are a long ways from the last tee. Recommended.
Rode the Blues (5827/67.3/120) as a single in 2H, 30M early morning using Forelinx. The weather was mid 90's and clear with a little breeze.

The tees are usually good here. Not today. Several were closed for over seeding and several others should have been closed for over seeding. The other dozen were flat with most divots already maintained.

The Bermuda fairways were mostly lush and were good to play from.

The mostly Bermuda rough was lush but overly tall. Good POP rough.

The traps were well maintained with fluffy sand. Nice to play from.

The Bermuda greens were smooth and putted medium speed. Firm, even well struck irons shots usually released. These greens are also on the small side, so approach shots barely offline can easily miss the greens.

The customer service, as always here, was excellent from everyone. No Drink cart out today. No GPS on the basic carts. This course would be easy to walk, very flat and most tees are close to the last green. Other than #17, a risk reward par 5 that runs around a lake, the layout will not wow you. Many holes would remind you of holes on dozens of other vintage Palm Springs courses. Recommended.
Played 8/17 7:20 first out. Cool and crisp 47 degrees. Course in good/great shape most everywhere. The front 9 (newer) goes out along the Martis Valley with the Truckee airport to the east and ski area to the west. Sun came up quickly and warmed up and dried out the dew on the fairways. Rough not to deep but was enough to make fairways desirable location. Back 9 (older) is more target golf up through the trees towards the ski area. Course is over 60 years old.

Greens excellent shape as most fairways. Summer conditions with maybe a touch too much water in areas that don't drain away well. Not a complaint just keeping fairways nice and green.

Played the recommended tees for our handicap and had a great morning. Very playable the staff was great. One item of note was signs in parking lot and entry to course stating alcohol policy strictly enforced. No beverage cart out for the back 9 but I was offered a bloody mary at the bar just after 7am.

A lot of choices for golf in Truckee area this one is nice and priced in line with what you get and the quality of the competition in Tahoe. Meaning you can pay more and get more. Depends on the budget. Fun course great weather.
Played 7 Am first out on Thursday 8/16. Same comments as last review. They had sprinklers running on first fairway so we waited a few minutes. Cool morning start just what we wanted and skies clear smoke from wildfires gone too. The greens had some type of fertilizer on them and the mower left a few dabs of foam on the greens maybe one or two spots that were a little larger than the ball not a factor putting just an illusion on par 3 once.
Conditions tee to green excellent. Greens holding med/fast and true. All that you'd expect of a course with this rack price green fees. $180 We played with a golf moose voucher so enjoyed the savings.
If you want to play Tahoe golf in prime conditions Coyote won't disappoint you right now.
The severe downhill 13th hole par 3 and the short par 4 dog left 14th ; need to pay attention to elevation and distances if playing the first time.
I had the opportunity to play Grayhawk Talon for a $35 rate due to a coworker having the White Tee card. Heck of a deal given the quality of course.
We teed off around 1006 with both courses fairly busy on a Saturday morning. Raptor seemed to have more playing going on than Talon. Only one range was open and it was packed before the round.
Talon is a bit tighter off the tee than Raptor. Still fun, playable and challenging. Talon has some fun holes including the last three holes to finish. Conditions were good but the course had a number of areas marked as GUR. I also noticed a large number of turf replacement throughout the course. A few bunkers were also marked as GUR with free drops. Tee boxes were good with a couple uneven lies and bare spots. Fairways had a number of bare spots but the "summer preferred lie" was invoked by the club. I didn't really have to take advantage of that today but my playing partners did. Bunkers were ok and a bit dried out. Greens were in very good shape and consistent through the round. They were a joy to putt on because of the speed and consistency through the day.
Beverage cart was around quite often and they do have a number of water stations throughout the course.
Grayhawk is the type of course I don't play very often but it's definitely worth it go give Talon a try with current conditions.
Played a twilight Friday round at Montebello this week for $32 with a cart with three friends for our 30-year high school reunion weekend. POP was actually pretty good as we found a sweet spot between groups and didn't get held up at all until the 12th hole.

Overall conditions at Montebello are quite playable but far from lush. The greens are running at med-fast speed and are in pretty good shape all things considered. Nothing too tricky about these greens but you do have to dial in the varying speeds based on some bumps here or there. Held shots well though.

Fairways were mostly okay in majority of areas but definitely some thin lies to contend with and lots of dirt/GUR areas that you'll want to avoid. Rough is of varied height but nothing too difficult to contend with at all. Tee boxes were in good shape for the most part, but the bunkers remain very thin and grainy like the first and only other time I visited Montebello two years prior. That's fine in the fairways but not so much near the greens.

It's very serviceable golf right now with some pretty cool holes that will challenge your game, some really long par 4s that will require more than one good shot per hole and a few elevations and water features that keep things interesting throughout the round. I'd come back again in a pinch.
Played here at 7:12 Tuesday morning, 8/14 with rob1563. Great fun and thanks to Rob for getting me the OB Sports rate! We got sent to the tee early but a few groups were stacked up waiting to start, so we began right on time. Hot temps but tolerable. Service was good and beverage cart came around a couple times. Pace was good at just over 4:00.

I found the conditions to be surprisingly good for mid-August. I'll get the bad out of the way first: A few greens are starting to dry out, resulting in some occasional dead spots. Fairways are a little spotty sometimes and browned out in some areas. But otherwise, I thought things were quite good considering the time of year. Greens held full shots well and rolled mostly smooth about medium speed. Fairways and rough had good coverage. I wasn't in any greenside bunkers but the fairway bunkers I was in were good. Tee boxes were decent, a little inconsistent but fine.

Design-wise, I felt the course felt similar to nearby Badlands (RIP) and TPC Las Vegas, but lacking some of the drama those courses deliver(ed). Like those courses, it offers some great mountain views. The desert areas at Angel Park aren't too severe, and it seems you can often find your ball and play it. Overall, it's a decent mid-range option in the Vegas area, but not a "destination"-type layout you'll remember vividly.

I made a Flickr photo album of 35 photos that can be viewed by copying and pasting this URL:
Amazing that the South course is adjacent to the North course and the conditions of the two course could not be more different. Greens on the South are fair at best, thin, patchy, bare spots, etc. In fact holes #2 and #5 are temporary greens and in truth there should be at least two others used as temps. Many of the tee boxes are thin and bare are well. I elevation on the South is lower than the North course, but hard to accept that would account for the difference in their condition.

Fairways are still good and all the bunkers are in great shape. Hoping that once this heat wave passes, conditions will return to normal ?
It seems that a number of people have left Dove Canyon which is just next door to Coto and have joined here. As a result, the course is much busier in the early mornings. Lots of singles in carts. (Trying to get in before work? or just playing holes? ) Rather annoying.

Course is in nice shape right now, has held up to the recent heat wave very well. Greens rolling true. Fairways green & lush. Bunkers are near perfect. A few issues with the rough, but nothing of consequence.
I played Aguila 8/18 around noon. Rate off the website was $20. Municipally run course with the bare essentials in regards to customer service but the employees I encountered were friendly and welcoming.
My expectations were pretty low considering the rate and their tee sheet was wide open. They changed once I got to the practice range. Lots of new grass on the range and good targets.
The course was in the best shape tee to green of any I have played this summer. I understand I don’t play the high end courses consistently but man Aguila was in awesome shape.
Fairways had full coverage of grass with zero bare spots. I was amazed to see that this time of year. Greens had been punched recently but putted wonderful and were receptive of well struck shots. Sand traps were awesome. Soft fluffy sand in all the bunkers I was in. You could actually make a swing and not worry about the club bouncing off hard packed dirt.
Overall, this is a course to play given conditions. Not a fancy, high end course but man great conditions.
