Played on Friday, 8/9 with famed02 for his birthday, joined by his son andy.drew621 and his buddy Barney. Gorgeous morning, 80* at 6:40, warmed up a bit during the round and finished in about 4:20.

This is easily in my Top 3 of Vegas courses. It has never disappointed. Conditions were excellent for late summer. Level tee boxes. Lush, carpet like fairways with a couple GUR areas, but overall fantastic shape. Rough was 2-3 inches, just enough to make you think. What surprised me the most is the bunker conditions. For the amount of wind they get through the canyons, sand was perfect, a medium heaviness that was easy to hit from and plenty of sand in the bunkers. I was warned by kevbig at check in the greens were running slow, but I still found them a decent medium speed. There were some little ant holes on a few holes, but if they were on your line, a little swipe of the foot leveled them.

Great customer service, good food, and a fantastic beer selection. Carts have GPS (to the center) along with USB and ultra comfortable seats.

I love the layout and design of the course, with a nice mix of risk/reward and long/short holes. Greens are not your typical Nicklaus multi-tier design, but he does make you pay if you miss them.Definitely a must play in Vegas.

Ahhh WOLF CREEK! The Disneyland of Golf. Such a wild ride, loving every minute of it!

Played on Saturday, 8/2 with a noon tee time. We were paired with a vacationing older player, who may not have liked our social interactions. He left after 16. We were behind a slow playing 4some, who discussed bets between every shot. It seemed like a long 4 1/2 hour round, especially in the 108 degree heat.

6th round here, and definitely not disappointed. I can't believe the conditions for the heat and humidity in this area this time of year. Great tee boxes. Super lush fairways, no thin or bare areas in sight, just incredible. Rough is variant depending on where you are, I found some short areas and some thick, gnarly areas. It's rough, it should be exciting. The bunkers have stand up since going to the beach like white sand, kinda light and thin, but easy to hit from. Greens were in great shape. Smooth but for a few ball marks, and medium pace. They have added giant fans on some of the greens to help air flow. They are also helpful when trying to cool off.

It's Wolf Creek, this course has never disappointed. Paid $65 for the noon Twilight rate. Resort quality service. An ice cooler full of clean towels at check in and before 10 to use to cool off, along with water every couple of holes. Can't have a drink cart on those paths but there's a drive through snack shack before 6 and 15, along with the grill at the turn. USB on the carts, but no GPS.

It's my favorite course in Nevada, so incredible what they did with it. If you're not impressed, nothing will impress you.

Played on Thursday, 8/1, with a noon tee time. It was part of a $59 "stay and play" package with the Casablanca Resort. Yes, it was blazing hot. Course was empty and we got around in less than 3 hours, taking our time, and taking a few shade breaks.

Course was in great shape for dead of summer. Due to the heat, I wasn't expecting much and was pleasantly surprised. Nice level tee boxes. Fairways were pretty lush, with barely a thin or brown area. Rough was a bit short, about an inch or 2 above fairway. Fairway bunkers were fine, can't comment on the green side ones (!). Greens were pretty smooth, a few unfixed ball marks, and medium speed. I'm guessing the keeping the greens a bit longer in the summer is healthier than trying to cut them short. It was standard for the weekend in Mesquite.

Staff was phenomenal. Changed our tee time with no issues. Food and drink prices were incredible, with $3 domestic beers. I had a great breakfast sandwich after driving in from Vegas. There's water coolers every even number hole, until the back, where they change it up towards the end. Carts were basic, no GPS, no USB.

Overall, a nice course especially with the package. The par 3s are a bit "ho hum," but it was a fun course with a couple of long holes. Tough to rate against some of the must plays in Mesquite but definitely worth it with the package deal.

Played today, 7/18 as well as last Saturday, 7/13. Today was an almost noon tee time I found on the app about 30 minutes earlier, $30 with the OB card. On check in, I was told a couple of 2somes had gone out about 30 minutes earlier, but a bunch of 4somes ahead of them. I played the front in about 1:20, taking a break to eat at 6 when I caught the 1st 2some. By 10, the 2 2s joined up since it was stacked in front of them, I invited a couple to join me but they declined. Finished in about 3:40 with a very slow back 9.

Conditions are really good right now. AP just hosted their annual Pro/Scratch, which is their highlight tourney. Course has retained their tourney feel. They added a 1st cut, which looks good and nice to hit from. Some dried out spots in the fairway but playable. Greens are in great shape, medium speed which I'm not use to, but they are smooth. The bunkers today were the only change from the weekend, dry and crusty versus loose and easy to hit from.

$30 is a steal right now. Course is in great shape.

Played on Friday, 7/5. Late decision to just walk on around 2, $25 with the OB Card, teed off at 2:30 and was in my car in less than 3 hours. Played through a 4 on 10 (basically forced) after trying to lay back and not tee off until they were off the green on the 1st 9. Made the turn in just about 1:30, than played the last 9 in just over a hour.

Course is in great condition for the summer time. Fairways were lush and running. They are growing the rough up and added a graduated "first cut" too. Bunkers looked crusty, but were easy to hit from, just need some rake lessons for the earlier groups. Greens were awesome. They are fully healed for aeration about a month ago. Smooth, "medium fast," but not firm, holding shots nicely.

Palm is my go-to course when I want to have fun, try to get risky, and still shoot a low score. Par 70, not even 6000 from the blues, but so much fun.

Played on the 4th of July, 7ish tee time, with famed02 and a couple of his buddies. Paid $49 (plus $2 fee) on GolfNow. Easy check in. Decent carts (USB, but no GPS). I was running late so not able to use the practice areas. Still the silliness with the carts staged until it's your time, than the starter turns your cart on. I'm sure there's a good reason but it results in a line of carts filled with people just sitting there, waiting to go, like a shotgun start but without the shotgun.

After my last and only experience had us walking off at over 5 hours with 2 stacked up holes to go, I was hesitant to play on a holiday. Luckily, I think the early time helped and we finished in 4:15 with some accordion like waiting/no waiting on some holes. We had some drinks and food in the restaurant after, good service, decent prices.

On to the course! The course was in great shape. Absolutely no complaints, tee to green, outside of a few crowned tee boxes and unfixed ball marks (seriously, there was a lot for such an early time). Fairways were lush and ultra-green. Rough was up, at least 2 inches, thick and juicy. I chopped it out almost every time, no way of hitting a full shot. Greens were smooth (outside of those pesky marks, did no one carry a tool?), and medium fast. Some had some top dressing on them. Sand was decent, a bit heavy but easy to hit.

I really like this course. Ted Robinson Sr design, so you get 3 par 3s over water, and an 18th hole with a fountain. Even though it's in a residential course, no real house issues and only the road parallel to 1. It's not flat, with awkward stances in the fairway and definitely in the rough. Not a must play in Vegas, but if you can get a good price, it's worth. (Odd note: GolfNow was cheaper than the course website for residents, probably the 1st time I've seen it)

Great GK plays with John, Matt, and David on 6/30. I have played here 4 times and conditions have not wavered no matter the season.

Conditions were awesome for the beginning of summer. For me, the greens were the highlight. I thought they were smooth and the speed was consistent throughout. The only bumps I saw were from old unrepaired ball marks. Fairways were lush with no bare areas. Rough was decent. The sand was heavy but easy to hit out.

I love this course and is easily a top pick in the Vegas area. Course is so fun to play and even though it's a Nicklaus Signature course, it's one of his tamer ones. Wide fairways and green complexes that don't overly penalize you. Definitely a must play in Vegas.

Played on Friday, 6/28, with John, David, and Matt for an awesome GK Guru round. Teed off at 6:40 and finished right at 4 hours, while waiting on a number of shots on the back.

Customer service was what you would expect from a Vegas resort course. Bag drop with free valet (if you want to use it). Bags were set up on higher end carts with GPS to the day's hole position. Nice Tiki style outdoor grill area, complete with couches, along with a huge breakfast burrito. Prices were consistent with most area courses.

Course was in great condition. There was a maintenance alert for aeration about 10 days ago, but outside of the 1st hole (top dressing and looked like a small hole punch), there were no signs of it. Greens were in awesome shape, smooth, and a nice almost fast pace. Only difficulty was the breaks, my guess is the natural pull is towards the airport. Tee boxes were in good condition. Rough had some spots of aeration, and varied from "not too bad" to heavy and thick. Fairways were pretty lush, only thin/brown areas were around the edges of the elevation run-offs. The only downside was the course was still very wet early in the morning. This affected the bunkers, with wet and clumpy sand.

Such a fun course to play, with a variety of short and long holes. The 5 par 3s, 3 over water, are all good holes. The current $69 resident rate, including a $15 credit for lunch in Cili, is an incredible price for this course. Yes, there's a steady line of airplanes taking off, but the course did a good job of blocking out the street and highway views. There's some awesome Strip views down the fairways.

**NOTE**: rating came out to a 7.6, but should be a 8.0. I was a little hard on the bunkers.

Played a GK Guru round on Thursday, 6/20 with John_T. Teed off at 12:10, finished at 3 on a warm and very windy day.

Course was in excellent shape, especially considering how warm it's been the last few weeks. Tee boxes were level, minus the few that had the markers on the front of the box. Fairways were incredible, lush, with beautiful mow lines. They are growing the rough up, at least compared to when I played in February. Bunkers were decent, with light sand that was easy to escape. Greens lived up to their billing as the best in the Valley. Smooth, absolutely no ball marks to repair, but running at a slower than usual speed.

Customer service was great. I had a hot dog and home made chips prior to the round.

Overall, the course was playing a bit slower than normal, with minimum roll on the fairways and slower greens. They have some excellent summer deals that are hard to pass on, especially in the afternoon if you can handle the heat.

Played Friday, 6/14, with John_T. Paid $35 with the OB card. Teed off at 7, was loading the clubs into the trunk before 11, paired with 2 other locals.

Course is in great shape heading into summer. Lush conditions tee to green, but grass is longer than normal, so no roll in the fairways and some nasty rough. Greens are phenomenal after aerating a month ago. Smooth but slower than normal, slowest I've seen them. The bunker replacement have held up, sand was wet but still go early in the morning, started to get a little crusty on top as it heated up.

Mountain is where I gauge my game, if I score well, I know I played well, there's no hiding it a bad part of the game.

Played in the GK Plays event on 6/9 and had a great time. Course is probably the best Links style course I've played, especially for being in the middle of California. I loved the option to keep it on the ground on approaches if the path was clear. Fairways ran firm and fast, but were nice to hit from and did not have any bare spots. Unfortunately if you ran off the fairway you ended in the nastiest fescue I've ever seen on a course, and if you didn't see where the ball went in, you had less than a 50/50 chance of finding. The greens surprised me. While not the best looking, they were pretty true and medium-fast. As everyone has mention, the bunkers were not in great shape and a product of the environment. They're totally exposed to the elements and remind me of desert course bunkers in the dead of summer.

Course was fun to play, with a few short par 4s and some very long ones, and a nice variety of short/long par 3s. I did see a snake behind the 15th green, which if I saw earlier would of cut my lost ball search time to zero. Lots of undulation from tee to green.

Outside services was minimum and the drink cart made her last round while we were on 3, but you can swing past the bar after 9. Hydration was important and there's plenty of water coolers around the course. The restaurant, 3 Finger Jack, had incredible food. I had a sandwich before the round and a great sausage ravioli dinner afterwards.

Played on Saturday, 6/8, as part of Matt's birthday bash. I'll start by saying this now my favorite course. Even if you don't do the whole GR experience and stay in the cabins, the course is phenomenal. Throw in the solitude of the cabin experience, along with fishing the ponds and enjoying the rec center area, and it's incredible.

Course was in great shape. Fairways were lush, green, and carpet like. Rough was up enough to cause problems. Greens were superb. While supposedly running at 11 (not early in the morning), they were very receptive, smooth, and a medium pace. A little bit of course knowledge is needed as there is a few doglegs where you can really cut if you know (or run out of fairway if you didn't know). If you go deep into the shadows in the morning, you do come across some ice conditions. Driving range is huge, but into the rising sun so you may need a spotter. Course has a great variety of holes, and no hole is repeated.

Staff was super friendly, from the pro shop, to the bar, to the cart guys. Carts are some higher end gas models, but no GPS. Course has plenty of yardage markers, including a sprinkler in the trees on the right, 71 yards from the 9th green (yeah I found it). No drink cart but you pass the bar/grill between 9 and 10. Plenty of deer running through the property and they get pretty close. Just an awesome course and worth the trip.
