Played here today at 12:15 with mpisarski01 for our GK Cup match. We got a great GN Hot Deal rate of $19 each earlier in the week when rain was forecast for most of the day. Around 12:10 there was one big group of 11 players on the tee in front of us (I think they went out 4-4-3) and we teed off at 12:28 as a result. Pace was pretty good and we finished in right around 4:30. Our playing partners left after nine, so we waited a lot on the back nine due to playing quickly behind the threesome in front.

Conditions are pretty good. The greens were great, except when they weren't, which is when Matt twice had putts bounce really high right off his putter. Otherwise they were smooth, accepted full shots very well, medium-fast and looked good. Just the occasional bumpiness to deal with. Fairways and rough have really nice coverage, maybe a little spottier in the rough. Neither of us were in a bunker, but I had to stand in one and it seemed nice. Tee boxes were a little beat up, but the markers were placed extremely wide (edge to edge on every box), so you had tons of options for where to tee it up.

I hadn't played out here for a while and it was great to get back. Not the most photogenic course, but it's fun to play and keeps things interesting and is a good test.
Played out here today (10:56 "Deal" time) with Sr714 for our GK Cup match. Sent out by ourselves as the third twosome to tee off in a row. Later a marshall told us that never should've happened, but we ended up playing by ourselves the whole round. Pace was slow but not agonizing. Around 5:00 total. Mostly cloudy skies, a little windy and sorta chilly.

Greens are pretty good, about medium speed to medium-fast. They have some imperfections here and there, but good for the most part. The course looks fantastic when spotted from the street! However, we'd learn that's because the fairways are dyed green. They played really nicely and the dye job is the most convincing one I've ever seen...not that weird artificial bluish-green you see sometimes. Rough was a little spottier, but dormant grass, clumps of crab grass, etc. I was in one bunker and it was fantastic...lots of loose, soft sand. Tee boxes decent. There's a spot of roped-off GUR greenside on the 7th hole that's sort of weird, just pure dirt between the bunker and the green. My ball ended up in it, and dropping outside of it then necessitated a very difficult chip over the dirt. Hopefully they fix that soon.
Played here today at 7:56 using a Costco voucher I received for Christmas. Paid $10 extra to tee off before noon. Employees (especially the starter) were all very friendly and welcoming. Paired with three guys who play the course semi-regularly. Started on time and pace was decent all day. The group in front of us was a little behind but we still finished in just under 4:30. Beautiful morning and quite warm by the fourth hole.

Conditions aren't much to look at right now but the course actually plays quite nice. Greens are smooth, medium to medium-fast speed and accept full shots well. Fairways are dormant grass with good coverage, but extremely tight... almost like hitting off an old, thin driving range mat. The rough was sometimes preferable, providing a little fluff under the ball. It wasn't too penal in most spots and seemed best around the green complexes. Tee boxes were good, although one or two were a bit lumpy. Bunkers were pretty good, no compacted sand but some seemed more dirt-like than sandy.

This was my third time here and I feel like the course grows on me a bit each time I play it. I think the greens are really challenging, tricky to read and difficult to hole putts. The dormant fairways mean you have to be especially careful on downhill sloping fairways. I nearly drove the green on Nos. 1 & 14. On the short par-4 6th, my 3-wood tee shot ran through the fairway and into the hazard some 280+ yards from the tee. And then on the downhill 16th, my drive ran all the way to the end of the fairway, probably 370 yards from the blue tees. Kinda felt like Kapalua on those holes, so that was sorta fun, but also sorta ridiculous. They put up some netting around the 18th green presumably to keep birds off the green... a necessary evil, I guess, but it's not very attractive on an otherwise pretty finisher.
I was in search of somewhere to play early, cheap and quick while on a post-Christmas Las Vegas family vacation, so I chose a $28 GolfNow Hot Deal for 7:30 Thursday morning. The other 3 spots were still available as of the night before, so I sort of expected the course to be empty, but it turns out there's a large member shotgun every morning. They originally said I'd start on No. 1, but then moved me to No. 2. Staff was all friendly and welcoming. I had the course to myself for about 3 or 4 holes, but then caught the members ahead and pace slowed considerably. Total POP for this executive course was still good at a little under 3:00. Weather was beautiful clear skies, bright sun and chilly in the low 40s to start. Right before the shotgun start, it was announced the course would be Cart Path Only until 8:30. (I called the previous day to inquire about frost delays, and they said they don't do them here. They just do CPO if there's frost. ???)

Conditions are quite good, but not as pure lush green as in sixpez's photos above. Greens were smooth, medium-fast to fast and held full shots well. For a senior-oriented executive course, there's a surprising amount of slope on some greens out here. (I four-putted one.) Full shots stopped quickly but it was difficult to control shorter shots around the green. Fairways and rough were both quite nice. I wasn't in a bunker but they looked good. Tee boxes were decent but several were a little lumpy.

There's a mix of some nice holes out here and some boring ones, too. Pretty good variety of hole lengths, although the six par 4s are all in the 320-350 range. Some minor elevation changes in spots, which is nice. The 15th tee offers views of The Strip, which is cool. Also, it seems like this course is almost always in pretty good to great condition. Overall, not a bad option when budget or time constraints are an issue.

Always great to get together for a GK Plays! Thank you Johnny for another fun event, and thank you to GolfMoose, Linksoul, Cleveland Golf and all the sponsors for such a cornucopia of prizes. Enjoyed the day yesterday with rudyclub, Andrew1 (whose name isn't Andrew!) and jefffassel. Shotgun pace was right around 4:30.

Conditions are mediocre to great, but mostly in between. The course definitely plays better than it looks. It's sort of splotchy in spots and several greens have some fresh sod issues and a light top dressing of sand (or maybe fertilizer?). Greens were smooth and quick for the most part. Full shots took one bounce and then stopped quickly. Fairways were lush, nice to play from. Rough was also lush, sometimes difficult. Tee boxes good. Bunkers were mixed. Nice sand and seemed to be nicely maintained, but I found a rock in one and in another, my ball rolled up to the back and stopped on a very steep angle instead of rolling back to the bottom. Then that portion of the bunker had very little sand and was clay-like underneath. Overall the course seemed much wetter than I would expect, considering how we've had no recent precipitation.

Having now played both La Costa courses, I definitely prefer Champions. Legends felt like a slightly nicer version of Riverwalk to me. I know they are part of a beautiful resort, but I consider the normal prices for these courses to be absolutely absurd.

The bright sky didn't cooperate for great picture taking, but I still created a Flickr photo album of 27 photos here:
I dug Nickesquire out of golf hibernation and convinced him to join me here today at 7:00 a.m. using a “Buy One, Get One Free” green fee coupon I had. Normal price $110 so we paid $55 each. We were paired with a single who was a nice guy except he would drive ahead and keep playing the hole out of turn if we were searching for a ball. Poor etiquette; a little annoying. Gorgeous morning with shirt-sleeve weather and mostly sunny/partly cloudy skies. We were the second group off and pace was excellent. The group in front disappeared very quickly, so we never waited on them, and we kept things moving enough to not have the twosome behind us pushing us. Total 3:20.

All of the turf is in fantastic condition. However, although the greens are lush, smooth and pure, they’re pretty slow right now. It’s not like they’re furry or anything, just much slower than you would expect for how good they look. Maybe it’s by design or maybe just a product of still letting them mature after overseeding? Also, they didn’t hold shots very well, but I wouldn’t necessarily say they were firm. They’re difficult to hole putts, as there is lots of slope and rarely do you find a straight putt. Some have crazy undulations, like the par-3 14th, shaped like a fidget spinner with one prong significantly elevated above the other two. (Same architect as Redhawk, so slightly reminiscent of the practice putting green there.) Fairways were lush, providing great lies all day. Rough was lush and probably 4 inches deep. It was difficult to find balls in it until you were right on top of it. Semi-penal, depending on how deep your ball settled. There are also a few areas of exceptionally deep rough (like knee deep in spots) that are farther off-line, some of which are marked as lateral hazards. Tee boxes excellent. Sand was great, too. Overall the course is in very nice, overseeded condition; the greens just need to speed up and then everything will be almost perfect.

I had played here several times in the past but I don’t think I’d been back for 20+ years. It’s a fun course with some good elevation changes, tricky greens, quite a few water features and lots of pretty views. Pro shop attendant and starter were both very friendly. The club seems to have a very active membership and it was cool to see a whole bunch of pull carts lined up outside due to the fact that many members walk.

Played out here today, Saturday 11/25, on an 11:50 GolfNow "Hot Deal" for $32. There were lots of times available on GolfNow, so despite a traditionally busy golf weekend, I thought this "under-the-radar" course might be less busy than others. Wrong. It was super busy and play was slow. I was sent out by myself between a bunch of foursomes (I guess the other 3 who bought at 11:50 never showed up) and the front nine took about 2:30. Then on the approach to the 11th, the group ahead of me waved me up and said they wanted to let me through all day but there was nowhere to go, but now several groups in front of them had bailed. I played the next few holes very quickly but then caught people again. Back nine pace was 1:30 for a total of just over 4 hours. Unseasonably warm and sunny, little wind, but fortunately there are lots of big trees out there to provide shade.

Course conditions are pretty good with some "good, but..." thrown in. Greens roll fast and smooth except they seemed prone to spike marks, which made them a little bumpy if you hit one. Full shots stopped quickly but short game shots were difficult to control on the speedy greens. Fairways had good coverage of light green/tan grass, but it was dry and seemed to disintegrate when a club came in contact with it. Still mostly provided good lies. Rough was the same as the fairways, just a little longer and with some sketchier thin spots. Kudos to the course, however, because they seem to put the emphasis on maintaining the grass around the green complexes, which was much greener and lusher than the rest of the fairways or rough. Bunkers were good. Tee boxes were nice lush grass but a little bit long...maybe not mown for a couple days.

This was my first time here. It's an old-school course surrounded by an old-school neighborhood. Typically I associate private courses (this was private until recently) with having more character than your typical muni-type course, but that perception doesn't really fit here. This is a pretty straightforward layout, very flat and not all that interesting. That's not to say it's bad. It's just a little boring. I don't necessarily feel a strong desire to return, but I wouldn't turn it down, either. There are a few water hazards that are hidden due to being elevated a bit, one of which I totally missed noticing the yellow stakes and hit my approach shot right into it.

Played here Saturday with a 12:30 "Deal" time. I'd wanted to play here for a long time and recently found a day they were allowing TeeOff promo codes, so I used a 25% off code to pay around $32. When I arrived, they didn't have my reservation, but I showed them the confirmation email and one of the guys said sometimes the reservations don't show up in their computers. They radio'd over to the starter and ended up getting me right out, actually a few minutes ahead of my time. Very friendly staff all around. I was paired with 3 others and POP was sorta slow but luckily got moving just in time for us to finish right after the beautiful sunset. Total around 4:30.

Conditions are pretty good. The greens were good but were maybe the low point. They were lush, medium speed and a little bumpy. I'm sure they are better in the mornings, but they were showing lots of ball marks and minor flaws in the afternoon. They were very soft; full shots stopped right where they landed. Fairways were mostly very nice, a little thin in a some spots. Rough was also pretty lush and not very penal. Blue tee boxes were good. The bunker sand was very nice...definitely above average, which I appreciated.

This was my first time ever playing here. I enjoyed the course quite a bit. There's tons of water that comes into play. Maybe the only faults are the surrounding city streets encroaching in spots and a lack of elevation changes. I played terribly, so I'd like to get back out there to redeem myself.

I’m not sure what was up with GolfNow when I booked this trip, but sixpez and I also got an incredible deal out here for 10:23 Sunday morning. Saturday’s blue skies had turned to clouds, but otherwise the weather was still very comfortable. Again we played as just a twosome.

Like Oasis the day before but to an even greater extent, Revere Concord looks great from a distance but is a little bit rough around the edges upon closer inspection. The greens were great; medium fast, accepted full shots well and rolled smooth. The fairways were deep green but lacked consistent coverage, so lies weren’t always great. The dormant rough was stringy and tough in some spots and less penal in others. Tee boxes were a little chewed up and it appeared no one had cleaned up broken tees for a while…they were everywhere! Bunkers were okay.

This was my second time playing Concord and I like the course quite a bit. The four par 3s are all really good. The downhill par-4 first is a fun way to start a round, and the long downhill par-5 18th is a blast.

Played here Saturday afternoon with sixpez on his quest to play anything and everything. Turned out to be a pretty fun nine-hole course, albeit overpriced at $25 for 9 holes ($35 for 18, which isn’t bad.)

The course was generally in good condition, except for an odd stretch of a few holes that seemed all dried out. The greens were smooth, medium speed and accepted full shots well. Fairways looked to be partially overseeded and were light green compared to the dormant rough. Mostly good lies in the fairway. Rough was a little more inconsistent. Tee boxes were okay; the 9th was all messed up. I’m not sure the course has any sand bunkers. It looked like the few they once had have transitioned to grass bunkers.

We were fortunate to play here late in the day with beautiful sunlight, which really accentuated the beauty of the last few holes. The par-3 9th is one of the most unusual holes you’ll find anywhere, but really fun with a water hazard fronting the green and reeds that conceal the surface from the tee.

Booked an amazing GN Hot Deal for Saturday, 11/11 about a month prior for my 5th Annual November golf trip to Nevada with sixpez. We had a 9:30 time and were sent to the tee as just a twosome, despite the tee sheet being seemingly full most of the day. We caught the group ahead of us by the third hole but pace was pretty decent, finishing in about 4:00. Ideal weather: mid 70s, sunny skies and little wind.

Course conditions are quite good. Greens were a little slower than expected and difficult to gauge the speed at first, but they were smooth and accepted full shots well. Overseeded deep green fairways contrasted with the semi-dormant rough. The fairway grass was nice but not as lush as it looked from afar... just a little patchy here and there. Rough was pretty fluffy and sometimes easier to hit from than the fairway. Tee boxes were good. I don’t think I was in a bunker.

This is a nice course that, unfortunately for it, comes with a dosage of Wolf Creek Envy. The course offers views of nearby Wolf Creek that make Oasis (Canyons) pale in comparison. It shares some of the same features of its famous neighbor but on a very toned down level, as the course winds its way through reddish sandstone hills. I think I actually enjoyed the course more in hindsight than I did in the moment. There are some really nice par 3s — three of which play severely downhill, which is fun. The downfall of this course is the surrounding community encroaching on it…lots of streets and tract homes diminish the overall aura of the place.

For the amazing deal we got, I highly recommend this course. For rack rate, I think your money is better spent elsewhere in Mesquite.

Played out here with dconnally today at 11:16 ( "Deal" time minus 20% promo code). Got there pretty early and I had a delicious breakfast burrito while David hit a small bucket. Employees were all really friendly. We knew going in the greens were aerated about two and a half weeks ago, but we figured that was sufficient time for them to heal. The practice green still showed lots of visible holes, but it didn't seem to affect putts. Then the greens on the course seemed to be even more healed, with barely any evidence of aeration. Weather was great and POP was, too, for the first seven holes. It wasn't very busy and most of the course was twosomes reluctant to join up into foursomes. We played the front in about 1:45 and the back in a little under 2:30, for a 4:10-4:15 total. After having a foursome behind us on the front, a twosome caught up to us on 14 and we invited them to join us, which they did.

Conditions are really nice. Greens varied between medium speed and medium-fast, seemingly getting faster later in the day. They were soft and full shots stopped very quickly, or even backed up a bit. Fairways had great coverage and are fast and firm...lies were a little tight as a result. Rough wasn't too deep, maybe two inches at the most and provided good lies. I was in one fairway bunker and it was good. Tee boxes were good, although maybe a little tilted on a couple holes.

This was my second time here. It's weird because I really like lots of holes out here, but as a whole, the course just isn't that compelling to me. I think it's really a great example of how much residential courses can be hindered by being surrounded by houses. Even though there are quite a few fun holes, I feel the course lacks character. I'm sure I'll be back, though. (I'd much rather play Marine Memorial if in this specific region.)
