Had the opportunity to play in an outing at Cascata today. Funny how timing never worked out for me when the GK Plays were here and the year I move to Vegas, there wasn't a GK Play out here lol. Not much to say that hasn't already been said and done at this wonderful course. From the private gated entrance, excellent service at bag drop, the clubhouse with a waterfall running through it, to the pro shop with a make your own Arnold Palmer stand with fresh baked cookies and fruit. And that's all before you even get to the grass!
The range is awesome hitting against the backdrop of the water cascading down the hill. The putting green provided a good glimpse of what was to come on the course.
Course conditions were GREAT for summer in Vegas. Better than anywhere else I've seen this season. Yes the fairways and rough had some areas of heat stress but name a course that doesn't this time of year? Bunkers were good and had no issues. Same with the tees. Greens were PURE! Holding well, rolling fast, and other than a couple of small areas on a couple of them, were so smooth and great to putt on! Our caddy was very helpful with all aspects of the game. He mentioned that the greens were "pretty bad" for Cascata. Can only imagine what they're like in peak season if this was slow and bad. Wow!!! Can't wait to come back and hopefully with some GK'ers next time!» Close
