Played Royal Links last Friday 12/21 with rob1563 & John_T. Thanks for the invite Rob! I have heard so many mixed reviews about this place that I wasn't sure what to expect but as it turned out, the course is an absolute blast to play! Having never played on the other side of the pond I can only use TV as a reference, but I feel as though Royal Links really did a great job of capturing the feel (minus the rain/wind) of Scotland, England, Ireland.
Driving in you'll have to call from the gate to be let in. Once you're in you'll see a massive castle which is the clubhouse and bag drop area. This being Vegas, of course everything has to be overdone! Service as Rob mentioned was great all around. Great range and putting green let you get a feel of what's to come on the course.
I've seen past reviews where the course played soft and you couldn't really get that links feel. I would say right now, the course is playing firm and fast as intended which really added to the enjoyment. We played the Gold Tees (6600 yards) which were in good shape. Same goes for the fairways, rough, greens, and bunkers. Entire course is 8.5-9.0 right now.
Layout is definitely tighter and shorter on the front. Longer hitters can leave driver in the bag for the first few holes especially since the fairways are running pretty good right now. One thing that really surprised me was how many swales and mounds there are. On the front 9 there are NO level lies once you're off the box. The back is more open and flatter but that doesn't mean easier! Greens range anywhere in size from postage stamp to a country acre (#18) and most have some pretty good breaks in them. But they were true and if you hit a good putt, it would hold it's line well. If you can get past the neighborhood and odor from the neighboring water treatment plant, you'll be happy you came! I look forward to another round here soon!» Close

Always enjoy the annual GK event at Rams Hill and this year was no exception. Course conditions were just about as good as always but I'll be that guy and say that the greens weren't as good as I've seen them before. Now mind, you we are talking about Rams Hill's ridiculously high standards so take it with a grain of salt but I found them to be slower and bumpier than I can ever remember but that just means they're still better than 95% of all other courses. All other aspects of the course and service were great as always. The new GPS equipped carts were really nice. Food on the patio was tasty albeit slow arriving, but we had nowhere to go anyway so we just enjoyed the day. Thanks again to Johnny and the staff at Rams Hill. Already looking forward to the next event!» Close

Finally got around to using my free round with 2 other buddies that also got the email special. My review would basically replicate Nick and Caligolfer's so I can't add much. Course conditions were d%mn near perfect and you'd really have to be super picky to not like how the course if playing currently. Yes it's CPO since they just came out of overseed but if there's ever a course that CPO isn't so bad it's the former Ocean Trails since most fairways are barely wide enough for Shaq to lay across lol. I mean there are some seriously tight fairways here and if you're off by even a little bit it's going to make for a long day! The weather was PERFECT. Views were amazing and the price was the BEST! ;) Service is as expected for a course of this caliber. If you still have that free round hurry up!» Close

What can I say about Wolf Creek that hasn't already been said?? The place is just plain WOW factor x 10! Everything you've heard or seen in pictures is absolutely true. Played today with fellow GK'ers Matt, Rob, and John and we had so much fun. They use a split tee system here and we were the first group off #10 at 8:50am. Starter warned us that front 9 had tee times going off until around 11:00 so take our time so as not to get stuck at the turn. We played at a nice leisurely pace and never saw the group behind us all day! We got to the turn right at 11:00 and caught those groups for the entire back nine for a total POP around 4.5 hours. Not bad on a holiday weekend.
Course conditions can pretty much be summed up like this. Everything was perfect or near perfect with the exception of the (White) tee boxes which were surprisingly poor on many holes for a course of this caliber. Either torn up or on sloped pretty bad. But if there is ever to be a weak spot on a course, I'd rather it be the tees than anywhere else.
Greens were firm and at times scary fast if you were above the hole. They have some crazy undulations on them so we all did our best Bubba golf impersonations during the day just messing around.
Rough- Lush in the areas surrounding the greens and starting to go dormant around the fairways.
Bunkers- All new Augusta white sand and they have a coarser texture than most but they were great to play from.
Service at all levels was excellent. No drink cart driving on the course but it was parked in the lot by the clubhouse.
With all the stunning views and elevation changes this is definitely a bucket list course. Not for the faint of heart or those with vertigo issues though! ;)» Close

Out to Rio Secco yesterday with GK Gurus JohnnyGK, sixpez, & rob1563 and as always with this crew it was a blast! Yesterday might've been the most challenging conditions that I've ever played Rio in since it was blowing pretty much 20-25mph all day with some gusts that were stronger than that. Add that to some of the challenging holes and it made a somewhat tight and tough track into a beast on several holes.
Course conditions were very good all the way around.
Tees were fine for the most part with some that had some minor issues but nothing drastic.
Fairways were a nice dark green, had decent roll out and padding underneath, and were contrasted nicely by the bermuda rough that is transitioning to dormancy.
As I mentioned the rough is beginning to go dormant so it wasn't really much of an issue off the fairways. Around some bunkers and greens they do have some nasty long rye that is coming in but those areas were scattered throughout.
Bunkers- Well...there's certainly a lot of them and a lot of sand in them. Beyond that I'll let Johnny review those as he quite the day getting a first hand look at them ;)
Greens were rolling really nicely and true. Firm underneath so it's best to allow for some run out on chips and pitches. Full shots with some height seemed to hold ok.
Service here is always on point and we saw the beverage cart several times during the round. The guys at bag drop were friendly and helpful as well. Always love this place even if that front 9 eats me alive with the tight holes. I can't wait to be back although hopefully without the howling wind.» Close
