Played yesterday in the outing too and agree with what everyone has said thus far. I just wanted to add there have been some new tee boxes since I was last here. #3 moved back about 30 yards. #4 looks like they brought is down some and open up the area around it a bit (although the tees were not back there when we played). Lastly #17, park your cart and take a hike back. Its about 40 yards back making it about a 570 yard par 5 which usually plays into a wind, my goodness. It was a tiny tee box before but they've redone the tee area so there should be more places they can put these markers.

Tee boxes were great, par 3s had a little more wear and tear.

Fairways are great to hit from and the rough did have some bite to them.

Greens were firm. Rarely saw any ball marks and I remember Nick hitting a moon ball on 12 about 10 feet from the pin only to have it release off the back of the green and we couldn't find where his ball land. Even though there were firm I don't think the speed was unrealistic. They rolled pretty good for me despite the couple of 3 putts I had but those were misreads on my part.

Found 2 bunkers. I was in the fairway bunker on 8 and it was too firm for me. The greenside one on 9 was fine, had plenty of sand to barely get it over the lip.

I always think this course plays more difficult than the rating but always always always forget this is a par 71. If you've looking for a birdie on the final 3 holes it would be a challenge. 16 is a long par 3, 17 is a par 5 into the wind, and 18 well enough has been said about that hole. Finally made a par on 18 so now I can die a happy man. I'm willing to make the drive up to play this course and I'm never disappointed and look forward to coming back again. Thanks to Johnny for organizing, the course for hosting and my playing partners for putting up with me.

Played in the SCGA outing as well. Kev is spot on in his review. One of the guys in our group had played here before and he said the greens are definitely different. It seems like a different type of grass is trying to take over. They putted great thou. Faster than they looked but I don’t think they were a 12 as was posted either.

Fairways are lush green and outstanding to hit from. Normally I expect the desert courses to be a little drier and browner but not here. Pretty generous landing areas but wayward drives can find the desert.

Found a couple of bunkers and they were great, white sand that was soft and fluffy.

The price is certainly on the higher side but the course is great and I was glad I did it. The wind was down today but if it’s blowing I can imagine this playing a lot more difficult. I’ll certianly be back when it comes back to the Canyon side.

Played yesterday since the North fairways had been punched (greens scheduled for tomorrow and Wednesday). Pace was 4:15 so it was pretty good for this side. Some waiting to start but then things picked up and we were never really waited too long to hit.

I thought the practice green shows more visible signs of the punching from a couple of weeks ago than the actual greens but I still think the greens could use a little more time to completely heal. Still some signs there and while they don't look uniformly green they actually did roll pretty fast.

Tee boxes were so so. You could still tell there was sand there as the grass has not completely grown back so they need more time too. It is probably why the tee boxes may be a little longer for my taste. I'd prefer if they had gotten a little haircut.

Fairways are good but the only time I really saw them was walking in them. I saw evidence that the grounds crew had filled in a lot of divots so that's good to see.

Rough isn't bad at all, its pretty down right now so chances are you can probably play whatever you want. But there are some spot out there that your ball can settle down and make for a tricky shot out.

Bunkers were hit or miss. I found plenty too. Some had no sand and some had some, it was a crap shoot if you got in them.

I'd say if you were a non-resident hold off for now. If you were a resident it's certainly a better option than the punched North.

Called and got a 1pm time and headed down there and got there about 12 and was able to get out in 20 minutes. It seemed like a slow pace but we finished in 4 hours 15 minutes which for a Friday is great. There was a group 3 or 4 ahead that was slow but the marshal was on them and they didn’t close the gap but they did narrow it. It was also super windy today. Mostly 2 clubs most of the day.

The practice green still shows signs of punching but the greens on the course did not. Greens while they don’t look good they actually rolled really well and quicker than they looked.

Fairways were good. Good roll out and nice lies. Don’t remember and really bad spots but there were probably a couple.

Rough is down as it usually is. I never factored the rough into my club selection. However if you Get in the trees that align these fairways it’s like playing pinball. There is not even a lot of trees but somehow balls just seem to be attracted to them.

Tee boxes can be uneven at times and since this is a shorter course you do get some par 4s with divot damage.

Was in 2 bunkers and while they look crusty and hard they aren’t as bad as they look.

Customer service was great as I mentioned the starter and marshal. Cart girl came around a few times too. For $37 it’s a great value if you can time the crowd.

Was second out yesterday by myself. A twosome went ahead of me and I never saw them the entire round. There was also no one behind me for a least 5 holes so it was like I had my own golf course. Finished in under 3 hours and I never rushed during the round, maybe just a little jog in the first 2 holes to get my body warm. Overall the course was greener than I expected. It looks like they are getting a good amount of water down on the course but there are still some areas that are bare/dry/brown but I'd say normal for here. The rough right off the fairway seemed to be mowed down a bit but venture a few more feet in the rough it was a little thicker but nothing penalizing. I had a little trouble with the speed of the greens to start with the moisture and cold I kept coming up short. Probably rolling at medium speed. Still quite a few ball marks and marks that were not repair properly. They did appear to punch the greens (last week?) with the real small holes but it didn't affect putts at all. I was in 2 traps and both had been freshly raked and plenty of sand. I didn't notice the fairway bunkers but the greenside bunkers from what I recall all had been raked. Overall it was enjoyable and a good value. I hope I can get back out there soon.

Had the first tee time today but there were 2 groups out in front of us which were staffers and after the first hole they took off and we never caught them the rest of the round. Finished a little over 4 hours and we were about a shot in front of the group behind us. Very relaxed pace never feeling pressure on beautiful day.

They are punching the small hole on 3 greens every Monday or every other Monday I forget which. Holes 5, 11 and 17 were the one done this past Monday and they really weren’t that bad. I thought overall the greens were much softer and slower than I have played in the past.

Fairways were fantastic. Mowed nice and provide a good amount of roll.

Rough, my goodness it is still thick like when I played a couple of weeks ago. My first tee shot found the right rough (barely) and I had to muscle a wedge out. I drove the ball really well which made me appreciate the fairway that much more. There were times you couldn’t see the ball at all.

I was in one fairway and one green side bunker and the greenside had plenty of sand and the fairway bunker was a little thinner but I like that so for me it was really good.

I think the course plays a little longer than the yardage. Everyone here is fantastic. I’ve never had a bad experience here which is why I don’t mind spending a little more than normal to play here. It’s a great test of golf and one of the toughest finishing holes I’ve played.

Played a couple times this week and just to update Jim’s review the greens have been verticut with some light sand on them. So the greens are a little slower and will pick up some of this sand in the morning with some of the morning moisture. Everything else is pretty much the same. I’d give the greens a week to fully recover but all in all they are not that bad.

Was 3rd off yesterday and the pace was fantastic. Finished in less than 4 hours and the group behind us was teeing off on 14 as we were walking up 17. I'm not sure if they let someone play through but even as we finished on 18 there was no one on 17.

I think the rains from last week slowed down the pace and firmness of the greens so that took some adjustments. Balls didn't roll out as much on approach shots and my first couple of putts were pretty short. They were still great however and will probably get quicker as the weather is turning nicer this week. So its probably back to "normal" later this week.

Fairways I probably shouldn't rate as I was playing out of the rough for most of the day. However they did provide some roll. A few places of divot damage but nothing too bad. Don't really remember any bad spots in the fairway thou so overall very nice to hit from.

Rough was not too penalizing although the ball could sit down. I was able to get some hybrids on a few shots since the ball was sitting up. You'll find a few dead spots out there and some lush spots.

Found a couple of bunkers and was in the fairway bunker on 7 and that sand was so soft. My feet basically sunk right in but that was the exception. Other bunkers I played seemed pretty normal, not too soft and not too compact.

Tee boxes were normal. Plenty of room to tee it up even on par 3 and all seemed to be generally level.

Course is shutting down for the LPGA today but we got out in the morning. Rained the previous night and off and on during the front 9. At times it was extremely heavy but the back 9 the coulda parted and the sun was out and quite enjoyable.

It rained enough that there were some puddles on the greens and bunkers had standing water in them but despite that the course was in outstanding condition. On the back the greens are about perfect. Really picked up pace as they dried out and really smooth. Never saw a putt get knocked off line once.

Fairways are fantastic. Definitely some wet spots but because of the undulation there was usually some dry spot to be found. Not a lot of roll thou.

Rough wow. That is some very thick stuff. I lost 2balls in the rough. We were told it’s going to be cut for the ladies and it makes sense with the rain last night and the morning that they probably couldn’t get the mowers out there.

We played the tips but that was not always possible because they had stands up blocking some of the back tee boxes. Some wetness on them too. I remember 7 was almost completely under water. Generally the tee boxes were pretty much untouched thou so they were really fantastic.

Again sand had some standing water in them and others were pretty wet but these were some of the best bunkers I’ve hit out of. I was a little uncertain the first time but one of the other guys had hit out first and looked fairly easy and it was.

Customer service is top notch and I expect nothing less from a Troon run facility. Never had a bad experience here and makes it easy to come and play here. I’d highly recommend coming after the tournament next week. Rack rate is a little out of my range but there are always deals out there for this place. I’m already making plans to come back and you should too.

Taking advantage of the time change I decided to take off early and hit the links. Got right out sandwiched between 2somes so I just joined up one of them after about 4 holes. Pace seemed slow but actually ended up being a 4 hour 15 morning nite round. Never saw a marshal so mayb is hat could have improved the pace a little.

Greens are just ok. To me they seemed slow but I’ve been playing Torrey so I’m not sure if I just got accustomed to the speed. A lot of bumps on the greens especially in the afternoon. Areas around the green have some patchy grass so I tried a hybrid and that didn’t work out so well.

Fairways are ok too, there was standing water in the fairway on 1 but I didn’t seen any other water in any other fairways. Quite a few divots out there and some questionable areas but generally decent t hit from.

Wasn’t in the sand but it looked ok. They looked like they could be raked however.

Rough was nonexistent so no penalty from being in it. It could be hard pan thou and that may make for a more difficult shot.

A few tee boxes need some leveling. 10 comes to mind off the top of my head.

Rate was 29 to walk it so still pretty decent value.

Played yesterday morning. Put at 6:45 and done at 10:45. Kind of weird weather. Started off warmer than I expected but got a little colder during the front 9 and we played 10 and half of 11 in the rain (pretty heavy too). After that the skies parted and was actually really nice.

I think the rain from the night before softened the greens but so they didn’t roll out like they have been over the last few weeks. I don’t think they were as fast either but probably because there was no roll and cut that morning.

Everything else is pretty much the same. I think the course is pretty getable right now just not by me.

Played a couple of times since my last visit including a men’s club outing today. Overall conditions still pretty good. Pace was everywhere from 3 1/2 hours to 5 hours today.

Greens are still very firm and putts are rolling. Pretty tough to get anywhere close to a front pin.

Fairways are good. Some questionable areas but generally good and you’ll probably get a little extra roll.

A couple of tee boxes were pretty firm and hard to get a tee in the ground.

Rough is down so it’s getable right now. Even around the greens they are not too bad.

Sand was nice but some could use a raking.

I’m not one to comment on food but the breakfast burrito is pretty dang good, pricy but good. Overall enjoyable and recommended.
