Out with the GK Event yesterday expecting the same conditions in the 9-10 range and was not disappointed. Everything here at Rams hill is top notch. From the guard gate in the service is fantastic and you are secluded from the emptiness of the Anza Borrego state park.

Rolling carpet like fairways with nice and fast greens make for a fun day. I did notice they had some storm damage on 3 or 4 holes but it was very small and did not subtract from the overall conditions, Just a little ground under repair. Greens had a lot of play today and started to get a touch bumpy but they still rolled true and fast. Sand was good and not to firm not too soft. Rough wasn't too long and did stop balls from rolling into the desert. Over all I'd give this place a 9/10.

7 of us played on 12/7 at 11:08 and 11:16. A week prior I called to see if they would allow us to have riders with us on the course and the man on the phone said no problem. When we arrived the three people said no chance, they do not allow more than 2 carts per group the starter was the worst in saying that it wasn’t going to happen because it would slow down the round. Funny how our round still took 5 hours due to a very slow tournament. After some arguing the girls took the car and went and explored Palm Springs. Joke is on fantasy Springs as we were going to stop by and spend more money after the round but that didn’t happen.

As for the course conditions they are fantastic right now as expected. Tee to green everything grass related was well manicured. Greens ran smoothish with medium fast speeds. Only thing to pick on was the sand wasn’t the best and the POP was horrendous. There was a tournament playing from the tips and these guys had no business playing from the whites let alone tips. The Marshall was super friendly and apologetic as there was nothing he could do.

Because of the service it will be a awhile before I go back as it left a bad taste in my mouth.

Played using my Club Corp Play-away membership for a cart fee of $36. That price is much better than the rack rate of $210. I had played here many years ago and remember not being able to finish due to darkness. This time I got to play all 18 holes (barely) POP was 4:35 but felt slower. One thing to note is most of the course is now surrounded by multi million dollar houses but they do not come into play unless you are wild off the tee. Conditions were great not immaculate but knowing that this course is never in full immaculate condition I was surprised on how good it was.

The staff here is very friendly and the starter gave us many tip including that the greens were firm and faster than normal due to the weather the week before. Tee's were in good shape even with the tournament play the last few days and have many options to choose from. Fairways were cut short and provided great roll all day. only a few areas had some issues with browning but those were few and far between. I found the rough to be longer than a usual course but had no issues powering through it. Greens were firm and were lightning fast a two inch putt would go far if you were not below the hole it was fun. The sand was hit or miss on the day, two holes have black sand from Montana and although wet were very powdery. I cant wait to try it when the course has been dry.

Over all if you can snag a deal this course is a lot of fun but with rack rate its tough to justify with so many other options in the Las Vegas area for less.

Played on Black Friday with rob 1563. This was the first time for both of us here at Canyon Gate. I used my club Corp play away card and brought rob as my guest. The guest rate for him was a bit steep at $140 but after playing it seemed to be worth it.

Course conditions were top notch as expected for a private club. From tee to green everything was in excellent shape. I would say they overseeded 90% of the course with only rough that was more than 15-20 yards off the fairway going dormant. Greens were smooth and fast which made for an adventure on multi tiered greens. The layout keeps you entertained throughout the round with water in play on 8-9 holes. I can’t wait to play again

I am going to start this review with one word....
WOW!!!
I have played some well manicured courses before but this one might take the cake. Playing two weeks ago on the sister course I did not realize how nice the classic was going to be. When Gregholla and I pulled in the gate we were amazed. Everything was SPECTACULAR from dark green rough to emerald fairways to the purest greens I have encountered playing golf.

The course was pretty open today on the tee sheet and we zipped around as a twosome in less than 3:15 passing 2 groups during our round. I could not find any blade of grass out of place and ZERO brown spots the entire day. Tee's were flat and cut just right. They had a few options to choose from so you dont have to worry about length of the course. Fairways were just cut this morning and rolled really nice and had very few divots. Rough was medium in length and would stop any roll as it should. You must make clean contact otherwise you were not going to advance the ball very far. Greens were medium/firm and quick today and we only encountered one ball mark from a previous group that was 3 inches from the hole and that was it (PERFECTION).

If I were to nitpick anything on the entire day it would be the sand. It was not bad but it was a little firm for my liking. Maybe 1 inch of sand and a firm under layer. I did not have any troubles getting out but it was the only thing keeping the course from a perfect 10!

If you have the chance to be invited or have a clubcorp playaway membership you must get out here immediately. I normally consider myself a tough critic but this day blew me away!

Got out yesterday at noon using Club Corp play away. Starting from the valet to the proshop and starter the service was top notch. It was a busy afternoon at IWCC but the staff does their best to make everyone happy. The starter even let me tee off 45 mins before my tee time because there was an opening.

The course was in great shape as expected this time of the year in the desert. From tee to green everything was lush and if I could nit pick anything it would be the tee's on par 3's were chewed up. This course IMO is very easy if you can keep your shots reasonably straight. Fairways are flat and other than a few lakes and green side bunkers there are not a lot of forced carries. The greens were not tricked out and seemed to be a little flat for my liking. Holes 11-16 have the mountains on the right and are visually epic.

Overall this is a very fun course if you want to score well but I was expecting it to be much harder. After talking to the guys in the shop after they mentioned that the classic course has most of the tough greens that are elevated and tricked out but no mountains.

Went out yesterday using a combo of certificates and promo codes from Teeoff.com to the just re-opened from over seeded and CPO Nicklaus course. Staff hew was fantastic and mentioned right away that it was CPO and to expect a little longer POP. We tee'ed off right on time and finished in 4hr 35 mins.

Conditions are great right now with the tee's and fairways stealing the show. Very lush and great lies all day. Greens where also very nice and lush but where shaggy and very slow. This was to be expected with them just opening the day before. Sand looked brown and wet but was very very soft and easy to hit from. The rough was very thick and starting to go dormant like usual for PGA west course but was playable for the most part, no bare spots.

Over all if you can find a deal for this course I highly recommend coming out and playing and its only to get better from here on out with the PGA coming in a little over 2 months.

Played 10/5 and must've just missed Steve and friends. We tee'd off at 10:30 using our free foursome certificate that Apisarski won at a GK event. The staff here was super friendly as usual and the bar food was tasty albeit expensive.

Course is in great shape right now as expected. When you get to the starter he warns you with a smile saying that there are over 100+ bunkers and only about 4 of them are visible from the tee. The last time I played here I did not hit any bunkers but this time I landed in two and both up against the front edge of course. Sand was decent but not great, a bit firm for my taste. Fairway and rough were lush with some of the fescue being knee high even though it looks to be only 3-5 inches, a great job by the grounds crew to make it look like a rolling mound I was convinced that it wasn't that thick. Greens were semi soft and rolled well and quick. The gold tee's we played from seemed to be a bit chewed up but nothing major.

Overall the unique layout itself warrants a trip here even though rates can be a bit high at times but nothing out of the ordinary for Las Vegas.

Decided to finally play Siena yesterday as it was nearby my hotel, boy im glad I did. My expectations for this course was mediocre at best but when I arrived the course was in really good summer shape. Very few bad spots on the course and it was very visually pleasing.

Tee's, fairways, and rough were in good shape with plenty of grass and very few burned out spots. i did see a few areas where to mower cut too short but nothing to write home about. Greens were a bit slow but held shots and most were smooth. Sand was a mixture depending on the trap, most were wet from morning watering and a few lacked some sand.

This course is very fun with each hole being a little different than the last making it and enjoyable round. I highly recommend in its current shape.

Ventured out to Cascata on Friday with Johnny and the Gk crew. Weather was hot but the stiff breeze made it feel less warm. Speaking of the wind.... it made this course very difficult. All uphill holes had wind at the back so they were fine but most if not all down hill were into the wind. This made and fade or draw go OB most of the time.

Course was in great summer condition and is better than a majority of the other CA, NV, AZ courses right now. They recently renovated the green side bunkers to nice and fluffy white sand. If you read the reviews from prior people this was needed. They still need to fix some fairway bunkers as there are small pebbles but the firmness is good for fairways. Greens ran smooth and fast like normal. They were however a little firmer than I like and anything landing on the back of the greens would bounce or roll off. The rough was super nasty friday and penalized you severely. Those will slower swing speeds pay the price and its tough to get one out of the rough.

Our caddie was Casey and while being a younger caddie he had been there for 14 years. He was spot on for every little piece of information. Even though we blamed him for the par 3 15th where all of us went into the back bunker haha. He should have told us the wind swirls on the hole. :) This is a great experience and I hope everyone get the opportunity to play here one day.

Used my club card for the $90 rate this morning going I booked the only singles time they had before 11 and tee'd off at 840. POP was decent at 4:20 my group had a father and son that were on the slower side for my liking but we kept decent pace and we never saw the group behind us. Staff here was fantastic as always IMO. I even went to the restaurant this morning and if you are a Eggs Benedict fan this place is for you.

As for the course it is in fantastic summer shape. It has been in the high nineties the last few weeks but they have watered the course a bunch to keep it alive. A few fairways were almost too wet and would stop all high shots and leave divots. Greens were smooth and running at a 10.5 per the sheet in the proshop telling you about weather and course conditions. One tip that I have hear is that like money every putt goes to the casino. So knowing that I had a fantastic day putting because this tip was true. Sand was decent to hit out of, out of the three shots I had to hit only one was a touch firm but nothing out of the ordinary.

This course is a must play and if you know someone with a gold card or above at Pechanga the rates are quite reasonable. I will be returning often until my card expires in six months

Had to visit Quintero again on my trip to AZ. Yes this course is a little out there from the city but it is worth the 45 minuet drive from Glendale. I played here last year after GK had a guru visit due to the great reviews and loved everything about the course. This year was no different. The conditions are outstanding for mid summer. The course is green and well manicured. If it wasn't 118° you'd thing its prime season.

Upon arriving and taking the 5 minuet cart ride from the club house to the practice area we were amazed at how green everything still was. Tee's were good with only a little damage on the par 3's which is normal for a busy course. Fairways had great coverage and gave you nice fluffy lies all day. I did notice after taking a divot the ground is still really moist from watering and the fact that its monsoon season. Rough had good coverage with a little discoloring here and there but nothing that takes away from the beauty of this course. Sand traps had a lot of sand and as mentioned previously it is a bit thick. Id rather have thick sand over powder sand any day. I was picking the ball clean on every shot.

As for the greens I needed to start a new paragraph. The greens here are not overly large but offer many different breaks and some that you can not see. The are a little furry to keep them alive in this heat but if you were with the grain they were fast. Against the grain was very slow. The greens were very firm and it was tough to get a ball to stay unless you hit 10ft in front of the pin. I learned the hard way on hole one. I saw a nice backstop to land and spin the ball back to the hole. Unfortunately my well struck approach landed 3 ft past the hole and bounced off the back. Once you get to reading the grain they were a pleasure to play and all putts were smooth rolling.

This course is a must play and the staff was fantastic for the most part. The cart guy in the morning from new york wasn't the friendliest at customer service but he didn't offend me so no biggie. Drinks are expensive and they dont take card on the course yet as the cell signal is bad, not always a bad thing. If you have the time I suggest going. Summer rates were $51 resident and $69 out of state plus you have to pay tax at the course which was almost $7 a person!
