We played the Arroyo as day 2 of our tournament. On another beautiful day, we had a shotgun start and got off right on time at 8:00 am. Much like Siena, this is a very pretty golf course. Many of the holes meander through the neighborhood of some very nice homes. The driving range is hassle to get to. We had to be driven to the range by the marshals if we wanted to warm up. Took about 2-3 minutes to drive there.

Fairways were excellent. Great lies in the fairways which were cut down. The rough was thick and penal. A ball landing in the rough was hard to find so that’s how thick it was. I usually do not have any problems hitting out of the rough but my playing partner did. He hated it as did many others. Slowed down play a bit and many spent time looking for balls just off of the fairway. Bunkers were fine and were filled with good, firm sand.

The greens were fast. Starter told us they would run about 10.5. They were pretty hard and did not hold good shots very well and definitely not holding shots hit out of the rough. They seemed faster actually but you could see some small weeds starting to grow in them. Was told they were going to aerate the green the following day and it looked like they were ready.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course. A good mixture of long and short holes and very fair with generous landing areas. Not sure what they charge here as we played as part of a tournament. Heard some folks pay up $100 on the weekend. That’s a bit steep for this course. Regardless, if you can get a good rate, I would highly recommend.

Was in Vegas to play in a 2 day tournament and the first round was at Siena. Never played here before but my playing partner had and loves it. On an absolutely drop dead gorgeous day, we tee off at 8:00 am. Pretty impressed with the facility. Nice driving range, putting green and the #1 tee box are all right there. No lengthy walk to get warmed up on the range.

Course is in very nice condition. Fairways have good coverage and the lies were excellent. Tee boxes were in great shape. The rough was in good shape and not a factor. Bunkers in great shape with good firm sand.

The greens were in good shape but were hard. Did not hold shots and barley left a ball mark. Bizarre and difficult to judge the speed however. Rolled true but were very grainy and not real fast.

There are a good mix of short/long holes with some doglegs. Some fairways have rock, cactus beds/hazards that cannot be seen from the tee box so driver is not always necessary on many of the holes. I really enjoyed the course. It is a very nice looking course but not real challenging and playing with someone who had played here before was helpful. Not a high end course but not a muni either. Had a great time and look forward to playing here again. Very nice bar and grill and the food was very tasty.

Played AH today with our neighborhood group on a very nice but windy day. Never played here before and didn’t know what to expect. Asked the starter for a little help on how to play it and he said there were many blind shots. He was right. Some quirky holes out there. Noticed it had been a couple of weeks since they aerated so I wasn’t expecting the best. POP was just under 4 hours which was good considering we did spend some time looking for lost shots.

The fairways have been recently aerated and in fact, some were being aerated on this day. Large holes with the residue clumps of dirt on the fairways so unable to give a good review on the fairways. The tee boxes were in great condition. They just need to cut it down a bit but they were green and lush. The rough was not real thick and playable. Bunkers were in good shape with good firm sand.

The greens were not too bad considering it has been 2 weeks since aeration. They were just slow but still rolled ok. I am told they are usually pretty fast but I would not expect to see them in good condition for a couple more weeks.

Not a real fan of the layout. Many blind shots with many elevation changes and having some course knowledge certainly would have helped. The GPS did help out with the layout of the holes. The par 3’s however are very cool and challenging with the elevation changes. Won’t be in a hurry to get back out here soon but would like to give it another try now that I know where to hit it.

Was invited to join cthuyen to play the Babe on 4/5, taking advantage of the $40 special. Can’t beat that price to play here. Was expecting poor conditions but was very surprised to see the fairways were in good condition. Still a lot patchy grass but for the most part, the fairways are starting to fill in. The fairways are better than many muni’s that’s for sure. The rough is growing back nicely also. Still in good condition and very soon I would expect that lush, green look to return. Bunkers are in excellent condition but they have always been great here.

The greens looked faster than they rolled. They were very soft, holding and rolled smooth.

This course will challenge you. Most of the fairways are pretty tight and if you miss, you’re likely to challenged by the many large trees/tree roots that line the fairways. Par 3’s are no picnic either. #7 plays 220 yds. from the whites and 241 yds. from blues But it is a fun course to play and hitting good shots bring on a real sense of accomplishment. Get out and play. I think the $40 weekday fee runs through April.

Had family in town this week and brother in law wants to play. So looked on line and found a good deal at HV. Grabbed it and off we went at 7:10. Two 2somes were ahead of us and a 4some behind us so we were at our own pace. Finished on 3.5 hours. A lot of quirky holes out here but always enjoyed the elevation changes and the views.

Check in was so so but it’s always this way here. It was early and I think I woke the guy up LOL. But have to agree with a couple of previous reviews as they’re not always the poster boys for customer service here. The course though is in real nice condition albeit there were some wet conditions on a couple of holes. Overall however, the fairways were in good shape. The rough was not thick and really not a factor. Bunkers were damp and hard.

The greens are in good shape. Smooth and rolling very nicely. The greens can be tricky though and course knowledge really helps knowing where to hit/pitch it. Had fun out there. If you like a hilly layout with many undulation changes, this one is for you.

A good friend invited me to join him for a round at MC. Although this course has a very nice setting with beautiful trees and deer everywhere, it’s not always been a favorite of mine. We had an 8:15 tee time but was following a party of 3 groups of 5 somes. My God were they slow. Almost 5 hours later, we finished. What a shame.

The course itself is very average at best. The fairways were hit and miss. You might get a good lie then again, you might not. The rough was ugly. Uncut grass that a ball could easily get lost in it. Tee boxes were ragged with high, uncut grass surrounding the tee boxes. Bunkers had hard, packed sand. Didn’t even need to rake when you hit out of them.

The greens here are always tricky and difficult to read for me but adding to the difficulty was the fact they were very bumpy and rolled uneven. Saw that they are going to aerate on 4/1 and it seems to be just in time.

Not exactly on my “can’t wait to get back out there” list and won’t likely be back for some time, And its realty not because of the course conditions but more because of the slow play. 5 hours on a weekday is not much fun.

Was invited out by cthuyen and his friends to play GC on 3/22. Appreciate the invite and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. On a cool and very busy day, there wasn’t much wind which was appreciated as we all know the wind can blow pretty good out here. Played in just under 4.5 hours but it really didn’t seem that long.

Cannot really add a lot to the cthuyen’s previous review only to agree on how nice this course is. It is in great shape right now at all levels. Guys in the clubhouse were all great. I told them I should be getting the senior rate but one guy said he didn’t believe me. He was kidding I think . lol. Anyway we joked about being senior and had a good laugh.

The greens were exceptional. Rolled perfectly and were fast. They were not holding unless you clipped it clean. Fairways were fast as well and you can get some good roll out here. They are going to be aerating the greens very soon which will impact play but once recovered, the greens should be nice again. Go play!!

Was looking for a place to play on Wed 2/13 before the rains came and chose Green River since it is relatively close and has been a while since I had played. Got to the course and checked in around 10:00. Nice guy in the clubhouse but he wanted to charge me $33 to walk? Told him last time I was here it was $23. Rate increase? He hit his keyboard several times and said ok, $25. Never can figure what the rate is here. With nobody out there, I figured I had about 3 hours before the rain hit. Finished most of the course rain free. Played 17 and 18 in light rain but had rain gear so no problem.

This course is struggling. The County is doing river maintenance and therefore a lot of construction happening on the east side of the course. Muddy conditions on the walk between holes #2 to #3 and then between #11 and #12. Fairways are winter brown as was expected but there are way too many bare spots out there. Tee boxes are beat up as well. The rough is dormant kikuyu and really not a factor. Bunkers were damp but not hard with relatively good lies.

The greens on the front were beat up. Holes 1-5 were not good. Many burnt areas and very slow. The rest of the greens however were in good shape and some were really nice, smooth and rolled true. Can’t figure out why the first 5 greens are just not recovering.

GR has always been a nice course for me. Challenging layout, a bit scenic and the local pro Art Guevara, is one on the nicest guys. Just so disappointed it is struggling to come back. Will be back out here late spring to hope it will come back to the GR we always knew.

A little late with this review but still wanted to do so. A good friend and I went out on Friday 2/8 to play SA and had an 8:22 tee time. Got paired with a couple of cocky guys that frankly wish we hadn’t but that’s a story for another day. It was a beautiful day but there was a lot of rain the days before so I expected a lot of golfers. I was right, it was packed.

Got out about 15 minutes late following a slow 5 some. Finished in about 4:45. The fairways are still winter brown but did notice green starting to come about on many holes. I guess they weren’t able to get the mowers out yet so some of the fairways were thick and therefore not much roll out. Made the course play longer. Some bad lies out there but we were playing LCP. Not much rough to speak of. The bunkers however were hard. The rain I’m sure led to this but never seen this before at SA. Usually, they’re soft. Hopefully, they will address this when the rain stops.

The greens were better than I have seen them here before albeit grainy as usual and on the slow side. They were also hard and not holding.

Overall good conditions but I’m expecting better conditions in the upcoming spring time resulting from the rain.

Decided to get out and play on 1/31 before the rain hit. Chose El Prado, Chino course as it’s been a long time and I figured it wasn’t very crowded. I was right. Very few folks out there so I got out solo walking around 10:45. was told there was a 2 some ahead of me but they were way ahead.

The course has always looked ragged. Especially around the tee boxes with weeds starting to grow. Doesn’t look very attractive but the tee boxes themselves were in nice condition. You can see there was effective over seeding done. Wasn’t expecting great fairways but they weren’t bad. Some bad lies, browned out and thin areas but over all acceptable. The rough was pretty beat up consisting of thick grass or hard pan. Bunkers seem to be more dirt than sand but were playable.

The greens were very nice but that’s always the case here. A couple of greens had some bad burns and they ran a little slower than I expected but again, acceptable.

The rain hit when I was on #7 but I had rain gear and waited out the hard stuff for a few minutes then continued on when it lightened up. Got to #8 tee box and got some more rain but also saw lightening. The rain came early but wasn’t expecting lightening. A couple of lightning strikes right over me. Yikes! What do I do now? Hid out under a tree for a while then finished out the hole. However as I was walking down the fairway, Kevin, the GM drove out in his car (not a cart) to see if I needed any help as he knew I was the only one out there. What a class act! Told him I would finish out the round as both lightning and rain had stopped. El Prado has always shown great customer service but today was truly exceptional.

Always forget about the length of this course, over 6800 from the blues and the layout is pretty nice but it is still a challenge at a good price.

Went out to Mountain Meadows with a friend on 1/28 with a 6:52 tee time. A little earlier than we normally go out and on a cool, cloudy morning, not too many folks out there. Off pretty much on time following a 2 some and being followed by another 2 some. Nice pace out there on this day. Walked it in about 3:20. We’re bringing in MM as part of our rotation now as we enjoy the lay out.

Not much to add from my last review except the fairways were a bit more chewed up. Tee boxes were are beat up as well. Looks like the rain we had still had an impact. Many roped off areas that were very damp and muddy. You could see where people ran their carts through the wet area tearing up portions of the fairway, particularly on the back where there is some steep hills. Disappointing actually to see as it will take a while to heal and the forecast Is calling for more rain. Bunkers still in great shape with good, firm sand.

The greens however are still in great shape. Ran a little bit faster than the last time. Had a couple of 3 putts as many of my putts ran past the hole.

Conditions not as good as the last time I was here which was only about a month ago but I still think playing here is worth it.

The last time I played Royal Vista was Nov. 2015 and because of slow play, I vowed that I would never play here again. I gave in and broke that vow today as our neighborhood group wanted to play our monthly outing here. We had a 9:38 tee time, playing east/north. Noticed they were really backed up on the first tee and when we checked in, the guy in the club house said they were a bit behind, like 5-10 minutes. Duh! How about 30-40 minutes behind! This course is always slow and never learns. Wasn’t much better as we got behind the slowest group known to man. So, 5 hours and 20 minutes later, we finished. On such a beautiful day, I wish we had picked another place to play.

The course is showing winter wear which is expected at all muni’s but it wasn’t terrible. Fairways were hit and miss. Some were in nice condition while others were beat up. There really wasn’t much rough to speak of as it was all dormant grass or hard pan. Bunkers had that top layer of sand which looked good but under was hard pan.

The good news here is that greens were in very nice condition and were a bit tricky if you got above the hole. Holding shots that were hit well.

Although a short track, I have always enjoyed the layout here and weekday rates are great. But c’mon man! 5.5 hours for a weekday round of golf is just not fun! Figure it out somehow!
