Rode the Blues (6348/71.3/130) with 24hourgolf in 4H early morning using UP. Calm, overcast and chilly made for a long course. Matched up with Sebastian and Diego, 7th and 5th graders respectively. Coming from a family of golf professionals, they both had beautiful swings. The 5th grader had not hit his growth spurt yet and played the red tees. I honestly would have thought the 7th grader was a college golfer just watching from afar. He was consistently 275 in the middle with a killer short game and shot a -2 70 from the Blues?!?!?!

Schmidy/Curley design that is a solid, challenging layout. Not an overly tight layout, but you cannot miss most fairways here by much without bringing penalty strokes (lost ball bushes & native overgrowth) into play. A couple of risk/reward par 4's that longer hitters can have a go at the green.

The tees were at best okay. Most of the par 4/5 tees had good coverage and were decent. Most of the par 3 tees were in mediocre to poor condition with lots of divots.

The fairways were patchy with good coverage, about 50/50 thin/lush.

The rough was lush, thick and penal, especially when wet early in the round.

The sand traps were well raked. However, damp and hard packed with inconsistent depths is challenging to play out of on hard/fast greens.

The large green complexes were nicely designed with mounds, slopes and contours to challenge you whether you were on or off the greens. The poa annua greens were quick. Medium fast to fast speed and firm. Slightly better condition overall than the Legends greens IMO.

This would be a very challenging course to walk, numerous tees were a hike from the last green. The carts have nice GPS. All grass range is a plus. The customer service was excellent from everyone, no drink cart today. Recommended if you get a deal, but I would not pay rack rate for these conditions.

Rode the Blues (6394/71.0/127) mid day with 24hourgolf using UP. 3H, 45M POP in overcast, breezy sometimes drizzling conditions in the 50's.

Schmidt/Curley design that has a good mixture of shorter. risk reward holes and longer holes. Overall this is a challenging layout that is a fun course to play. I slightly prefer Legends over the sister Champions layout. The large green complexes here are well designed with mounds, slopes and contours to challenge you whether you were on or off the greens.

The tees were mediocre. Most of the par 4/5 tees were okay and had good coverage. Most of the par 3 tees were not in good shape at all with large areas that had divots galore or were basically GUR where they were attempting to fix old divots.

The fairways were patchy, a mixture of thin/lush and there were alot of old divots.

The rough was mostly lush and thick. On the occasions when the ball settled down, it was whack a short iron out and get it back in play time.

The sand traps looked well manicured. However, the sand depth and quality was usually substandard. Most were more hard packed and had some rocks in them. That makes large, green side bunkers playing to firm quick greens almost impossible.

The poa annua greens did not look good at all, but putted much better than they looked. Firm and started out medium fast but had slowed to medium speed because of the drizzle later in the round. Too many ball marks to be considered good, even nice high irons rolled out.

This would be a very challenging course to walk, numerous tees were a hike from the last green. Not an overly tight layout, but you cannot miss most fairways here by much without bringing penalty strokes (lost ball bushes & native overgrowth) into play. The carts have nice GPS. The customer service was excellent from everyone, but no drink cart today. All grass range. Recommended if you get a deal, nice layout but currently in mediocre playing condition.

Rode the Blacks (6720/72.1/127) with Jack, Dick and Toni in 4H using UP. 1 pm shotgun start. The weather was windy, clear and approaching 90. Warmest day out here in months.

Santa Rosa has mostly generous landing areas. Nice combination of shorter risk/reward/strategic holes and longer holes. It would be a good choice for players of all skill levels. Definitely not a course to walk, many tees are a long way from the last green.

The tees were lush, level and very nicely maintained.

The fairways were lush and very nice to play from.

The rough was lush/thick. Tall enough that finding balls was challenging. Since the ball usually sat down, you often had to be closeby to see it.

The sand traps were nicely maintained with thick, good quality sand.

The greens had very small punches that did not really affect putting. Medium speed and smooth/consistent/firm.

The customer service was very good as usual here. Nice, all grass driving range. No GPS on the basic carts. The layout is beginning to dry out, not quite as lush as when I played here last week, but still highly recommended.

Rode the Blacks (6669/71.9/128) with John, Jim and Peggy in 4H early morning using UP. The weather was clear, calm and in the low 80's when we finished just before noon.

Generous landing areas and a reasonable difficulty factor would make this course a good choice for players of all skill levels. Some forced carries and water comes into play on many holes, but not for the more forward tees. Would be a difficult course to walk, many tees are a long way from the last green. No GPS on the basic carts.

The tees were lush and very well maintained.

The fairways are lush and were being slice cut today, which affected their playability short-term.

The rough is super lush and punitive. Thick and deep enough to make the ball sit down.

The sand traps were nicely maintained with thick, good quality sand.

The large greens putted nice, medium speed and are firm.

The customer service was excellent from everyone encountered. No drink cart today. Reasonably priced restaurant onsite that was super busy. No driving range, you have to go 1/2 mile down the street where the sister Santa Rosa course has a nice, all grass driving range. Definitely recommended.

Rode the Blacks (6720/72.1/127) first out in 2H, 45M using UP. The weather started chilly but warmed up to the 60's by the time I was finishing, calm and clear.

Playing conditions very good to excellent across the board. Enjoy this conventional Billy Casper design more each time I play it. Four par 5 and four par 3 36-36=72 layout. The front is almost 300 yards shorter with a couple of risk/reward par 4's.

The tees were lush, level and very nicely maintained.

The fairways were lush and very nice to play from.

The rough was lush/thick. They were mowing it down as I was playing, played the first 9 in 4-5" thick, wet rough, it was more like 3" after it was mowed.

The sand traps were nicely maintained with thick, good quality sand. So thick that 2/4 balls I flew into a trap was partially buried.

The greens had a light top dressing with very small punches. Did not really affect putting as they were medium fast speed and were smooth/consistent/firm.

Santa Rosa is tight in places, but has mostly generous landing areas. It would be a good choice for players of all skill levels. Definitely not a course to walk, many tees are a long way from the last green. Customer service was very good. Nice, all grass driving range. Definitely Recommended.

Rode the Blacks (6669/71.9/128) with John, Donna and their adult grandscon Nate in 4.5H twilight using UP. The weather was clear, breezy and in the low 70's when we finished around 5pm.

The course is in super condition. Billy Casper designed Par 35-37=72 layout with five par 5's and five par 3's. The front is stacked with par 3's, 4 of your first 8 holes are par 3's. The back 9 averages almost 420 per hole from the Blacks, it plays long.

The tees were lush and well maintained. The Black tees had so few divots they almost looked like artificial turf.

The fairways are lush and very nice to play from.

The rough is super lush and punitive. Thick and just deep enough to make the ball sit down.

The sand traps were nicely maintained with good quality sand. They are thick enough to produce several "fried eggs" in our group.

The large greens putted nice, medium fast speed and firm.

Generous landing areas and the difficulty factor would make it a good choice for players of all skill levels. Some forced carries and water comes into play on many holes. Would be a difficult course to walk, many tees are a long way from the last green. No GPS on the basic carts. The customer service was good from everyone encountered. No drink cart today. Had lunch between rounds, good selection and reasonably priced restaurant. No driving range, you have to go 1/2 mile down the street where the sister Santa Rosa course has a nice, all grass driving range. Definitely recommended.

Rode the Blues (5827/67.3/120) in slightly over 4H mid morning using Forelinx. Matched up with C.D., Al and Roger, very nice group to play with. Around 70, clear and breezy, very comfortable golf weather.

This course would be easy to walk, very flat and most tees are close to the last green. Typical old school desert layout.

The tees were lush and maintained long with few unfixed divots.

The fairways were mostly lush and good to play from.

The rough was lush and thick even if not tall. Good POP rough and nice to chip from.

The traps were well maintained with thick sand. A few had sprinkler runoff challenges.

The small greens putted medium fast speed and were firm. A couple had some bad patches around the perimerter.

The customer service is always excellent here. No Drink cart today. No GPS on the basic carts that are nice. Rasonably priced grill onsite. Complimentary range balls on an all grass range that tops out at about 220 yards. Fun course, the staff is very friendly and I frequently get matched up with nice seniors to play with. Recommended.

Rode the Blues (6556/71.0/126) in 4H. Overcast, WINDY conditions in the mid 60's. GK Guru outing with JohnnyGK, RGM2525 and Weber2323. Thanks to Johnny, Ron and Mike for a fun round in spite of the wind.

The tees were mowed nicely with good coverage. However, the Blue par 3's were really chewed up today. They had a SCGA qualifer in the morning and it looked like everyone took a divot and no one repaired anything. Several par 3's had a full row of fresh divots obviously made today from marker to marker.

The fairways were semi lush, good coverage, very playable.

The rough also had good coverage and could be penal even though not overly high. Just long enough to make longer clubs challenging.

The traps were very nicely maintained with good quality sand.

The large greens were smooth, firm and medium fast. So firm they were few ball marks. Chipping and stopping irons in the wind was a challenge.

Enjoyable and fun course to play, tough w/o being overly punitive. Nice, all grass driving range with good chipping/putting practice area. No drink cart today. The customer service was very good from all encountered. Course was in very nice shape, highly recommended.

Rode the Blues (6313/70.6/129) in 4H, 15M twilight with Chris. The weather was overcast, fairly calm and around 65. SilverRock is not as difficult after the redesign that shortened the back 9, but still a fun & pretty layout.

The tees were lush and well maintained. Level with few divots.

The fairways were lush, mowed down close and played firm. Nicely maintained and good to play from.

The rough close to the fairways is overseeded and is very lush. Farther away from the fairways is dormant Bermuda.

The sand traps were in nice condition with a generous amount of fine grain sand. These traps are tough to play from with large lips and potential long carries.

The large greens have a decent amount of contour/slope. They putted medium fast and were smooth. They were firm and even high, well struck irons would have some run out.

The customer service was excellent from everyone. Drink cart out making the rounds. all grass range included in your fee and the carts have nice GPS. Definitely recommended.

Rode the Blues (6556/71.0/126) in 4H, 20M with 24hourgolf, MrKich and USCDodger32 in overcast, breezy conditions in the mid 60's. Thanks to Larry, Mathew and Daniel for a fun round!

Love Schmidt/Curley layouts. Well above average course that has 18 good to excellent golf holes. Course knowledge would assist on many holes to know where not to miss around some of the large green complexes. Around numerous greens are runoff areas where you are unlikely to get the ball up/down if you miss there.

The tees were well maintained with good coverage. Only a few par 3's needed divot attention.

The fairways had good coverage and were still soft from the recent rains. Definitely not lush, but very playable.

The rough also had good coverage and could be penal even though not overly long. Just long enough to mess with longer clubs.

The traps were decently maintained with good quality sand.

The large greens putted nice overall. Firm, more medium speed than medium fast. So firm they were few ball marks.

All grass driving range and nice chipping/putting areas are a +. Enjoyable and fun course to play, tough w/o being overly punitive. #18 is a classic finishing hole, long par 4 with water prominently in play on every shot. Drink cart out making the rounds several times.

The customer service was very good from all encountered. Course was in very nice shape, but it paled in comparasion to multiple tounds I played this week @ Desert Willow and PGA West. $89 including range balls to play is high even for a weekend primetime, but still highly recommended.

Rode the Blues (6671/72.8/133) with Mike and Steve in 4H. The weather was partly cloudy, WINDY and around 65. The course is in immaculate shape.

The tee boxes were lush, level and very nicely maintained.

The fairways were generous in size and lush. Well maintained with few unfixed divots.

Not much rough as the fairways go immediately to desert scape on this course. The only grass maintained higher than the fairways is a strip around the sand traps.

The sand traps are plentiful and were nicely maintained with good quality sand. Green side bunkers are deep and large.

The large greens were firm and QUICK. Best greens I have putted on this golf eason so far.

The customer service is always good here. Complementary bottled water in the ice chest, and the cart gal was out making the rounds. Nice grass range with complimentary balls, nice sand/chipping and practice putting areas that closely resembled the on course conditions. Good GPS on carts. Recommended.

Played the Blues (6197/69.9/122) in slightly more than 4H using Forelinx. The weather was partly cloudy, around 75 and windy. Matched up with Chris and Jeremy, on vacation from Oregon.

The over seeded tees were lush and well maintained. All but the par 3's were in very good shape.

The over seeded fairways were lush and played well.

The Bermuda rough is just long enough to grab your club where it is mixed with other grasses and just short enough to sometimes be hardpan where it is nothing but dormant Bermuda. The rough around the greens is very lush.

The sand traps were nicely maintained with medium texture brown sand.

The greens were smooth, firm & putted medium fast. Recent small tyne punch dies not affect putting. No severe slopes or tiers, I usually see the lines well on these greens.

The customer service was excellent from everyone encountered. Drink cart out making the rounds. The carts are equipped with nice GPS. This would be a challenging course to walk. Numerous tees are a long way from the last green because the course is split up between multiple residential complexes. Fairly wide open layout with a good mixture of holes. Fun course to play. Recommended.
