Have been playing golf for several years and have always loved this crazy game. The frustration of hitting a bad shot or missing a short putt can get to you but no better feeling than seeing your drive striped down the middle or that iron shot that ends up next to the pin. Or better yet, playing a beautiful course with some good friends! I plan to play more as my perspective on life has changed a bit. Being a recent pancreatic cancer survivor made me realize that the good things in life are still out there. Don't want to miss em!

Was invited to play RH for a noon tee time on Friday 6/23 and was reluctant to do so largely because of the heat, the reviews and comments from some of my friends. I decided to go as I have never played here before, at least not since it was redone what? about 20 years ago? I’m glad I did as I was pleasantly surprised. I guess I was expecting the worse and it was better than what I expected? No, not really. I enjoyed this course and would rate it higher than the previous reviews from our GK colleagues.
Overall, not a real long course and it is a muni. The fairways however were in very nice condition. It was heavy kikuyu but was cut down pretty low so the ball sat up pretty nice. Some dry areas but not very many. Sand was in good shape as well. Not much rough as it was cut down a bit as well so getting out was not difficult. Tee boxes were a bit thrashed but can’t say it was different than any other course I have recently played.
The greens were soft. They were smooth and rolled true but not very fast. A bit on the slow side particularly as the day progressed.
I enjoyed playing here. $52 to ride seemed a bit high for a muni but there are a good mix of long and short par 4’s. Opening hole played to about 410 from the blues. A couple of nice dog legs are mixed in so you need to hit to a good spot to approach the green. Par 3’s are challenging as well. #8 played 239 yards for us on this day.
We had a late lunch/dinner in the restaurant and it was pretty good. They have a very nice bar overlooking a couple of the holes. Nice!
This is not on my “hurry up and play again real soon list” but I would definitely like to come back give it go. Overall I was impressed and would recommend.» Close

Played in a GK Guru outing on Tuesday 6/20 with Johnny GK, Gary00, Tubedude and Stickboy. Yeah, we played as a 5 some but we got around in about 4:30. (allowed to play as 5-some due to course being wide-open because of heat) Off at about 12:30 on a pretty warm day. Definitely hotter as the day progressed and I’m guessing it was around 100 but the course was pretty empty.
I last played here about 7 months ago and I can see some improvements from then. Fairways were in good shape so no issues there. Some lies are still pretty tight and some browning but overall in good condition. I have always felt EG is a challenging course. Accuracy off the tee is a must as many fairways are lined with thick brush. Roll out was good. Tee boxes were a bit thrashed and some were uneven. Bunkers were a mixed. I was in a greenside bunker and it was very soft sand. Then the following hole I was in a fairway bunker and it was pretty hard. The rough wasn’t long or very thick.
The greens were a bit grainy. First time I have ever seen that here. They are usually firm and fast but on this day they were medium fast but rolled true.
Despite the heat, it was a great and fun day. I see some good rates out there and I intend on playing here more. It’s definitely worth the rate.» Close

Finally got a chance to play Rancho. A friend called to say he had opening and having never played here, I accepted even though I knew it would be a 2 hour commute home. Had a 10:32 time on Friday 6/16 and was on the tee right on time. Pace of play was slow – about 4:45. Not sure why it was so slow but after #12, the pace picked up considerably. Everyone seems to wait a while on 12 as it is a fairly long par 3 next to a concession stand with lots of booze!
I was so looking to playing here and enjoyed the course. A mixture of short and long par 4’s with long par 3’s make it challenging. To say this course is old would be an understatement. The layout is nice. Mostly straight away holes but a couple of fairways with slight doglegs. Some elevation changes but not severe. The fairways are lined with large trees adding to the beauty. A lot of brown spots out there. The kikuyu fairways were cut low so there was some roll out. There wasn’t much rough to speak of as it was dried out but miss a fairway and you could end up in tree roots. Was only in 1 bunker and it was in good condition. That’s always nice to see.
The greens were really nice. Smooth but kind of spongy and they were really holding. Not a lot of undulations on the greens so breaks were subtle.
Had fun today with some good friends. If it wasn’t so far traffic wise, I’d be playing here more I’m sure.» Close

I play here regularly but because of other commitments, travel, etc, its been a couple of months and was anxious to get back out. Played today 6/14 and had a 9:38 tee time. The morning times were booked on both course due to a youth tournament but that’s not why it was a 5 hour round today. After the tournament, there was a 4 some, a 3 some, then us. Somehow a 2 some snuck in there and they were very slow. They were not very good and it really slowed things down. Very unusual for a 5 hour weekday round here.
Regardless, the course is in very nice condition. Fairways were lush kikuyu but it was cut down real nice. The rough was pretty thick. Hard to hit out of today. Sand traps were in really nice condition. Big improvement here.
The greens were great. Not real fast but were rolling perfectly. Downhill putts a different story. Hit it too hard and you were possibly off the green. They were holding shots however.
Love playing here. Always look forward to having a good lunch after in the restaurant. The girls who serve are super! Coming back next week!.» Close

Played the Babe today 6/11 in the SCNGA tournament. Early morning 7:00 shotgun start on a misty, cool day. We played the combo tees at about 6350 yards. Never played the combo tees here but a good idea and very challenging. We started out on #17, par 3 over water about 195 to a back pin. What a way to start! I played well but this course is tough and can find a way to grab you. Many of the fairways are pretty narrow and they had the pin placements in areas I have never seen before. They were hard to get to. Pace of play was slow. Just about 5 hours but this tournament is always slow and was expected.
Regardless, the fairways were in great shape. Some browning out there which was a bit surprising but otherwise the lies were great. The rough was thick but playable. Beautiful, large trees line the fairways and do come into play. Best to be in the fairway! Sand traps were in great shape. Some are pretty deep.
The greens were in great shape, they rolled perfectly and were about medium fast. A lot of undulations make them difficult to read but they were holding.
I would love to play here more but the price tag is a bit high. Never really see a good deal. Only complaint today was the cart paths. Tree roots are more than evident and can make for a bumpy ride but a small price to pay for such a nice venue!» Close
