I like to have fun on the golf course. Life is too short to be upset over a little white ball not going where it's suppose to go. Find it and send it to it's home. I guarantee I'll hit a shot that you have never seen before (probably ending up behind us).

Played Friday, 3/31, with John_T and his dad, thanks to a free 4some from gary00 via tonybarrett. Thank you gentlemen, and thank you Johnny and Aliante/Troon for providing it during a GK event.
With winds hitting close to 70 mph in the area last night, I was expecting a mess on the course. I saw a couple of maintenance vehicles hauling off lots of big limbs as I pulled in, but there was no sign of any damage to the course. Great job by the staff. Due to the weather the last few days, tee boxes were a bit shaggy, mostly level, and some divot damage. Fairways were in great shape and best part of the course. Lush, no thin or brown areas. Rough was rough, bermuda just coming back. Coverage near the desert areas have really thinned out or died. Bunkers were bad, just hard packed, thin, with pebbles in them. Greens were pretty good. As a reminder, they lost almost all of them last summer and were a bit shaggy in November when I played. Firm today, medium speed, with some bumpiness.
Staff was great. No drink cart today, but you go past the bar/grill on the way to the 10th tee, with great prices. Weather kept everyone away, played in 3:45, letting a 2some through early. I do love this course, happy to see it coming back but it still has some work to do. Not a destination, but worth it for under $50.» Close

Played Thursday, 3/23, with a 9:25a tee time. I won a free 2some in twitter contest Arroyo/Siena sponsored with UNLV Basketball which was good Monday-Thursday. Arroyo is the public side of the Red Rock Country Club, with it's private Mountain course in the same area. Each course has it's own clubhouse and practice area. When you pull into the parking lot, carts are set up at the bag drop and it's a very short walk to the pro shop to check in and a pretty large restaurant attached. There's a very small putting green outside of the pro shop which was the same speed as the course. If you want to hit the driving range, the Arroyo range is on the far side of the private range and you need to drive up the side of it to get there. When you do, you find 6-8 stations in a worn out area next to another private area. Yes, you can tell the difference but it's fine for warming up. We were paired up with a local couple and we finished in about 3:45, excellent pace.
I last played here almost 3 years ago and I remembered I really enjoyed the course. Shocker. Enjoyed it today. While it does route through housing, they are "mostly" out of play. Outside of 8/9, no 2 holes repeat, nice variety of par 3s (including a 200+ yard into the wind).
Conditions were Ok, not bad, not great. Most tee boxes were good, but #7 (the signature par 3) was completely dirt at the blue tees. Fairways were firm with little amount of thin areas. Rough was about 2-3 inches. Greens were weird. Ran at a medium speed, they appeared to have a few different grasses in them. There was a few bumpy putts today. My only complaint are the bunkers. Just like 3 years ago, the liners are exposed in the bunkers, all on the front 9. The sand was ok, but had little pebbles. If you had a putt anywhere near a green side bunker, you had lots of pebbles around you.
Overall, I really really want to like this course. Customer service is great. Drink cart was around 4-5 times. It's just the little things like some of the tee boxes and those bunker liners that bother me. Would I play here again? Yes, if I was paying about $40.» Close

Played on Friday, 3/17, with a 9:10 tee time. If you love college basketball and have never been to Vegas for March Madness,you are missing out. When I worked in the sports books, this weekend was bigger than Super Bowl. The whole town is packed, including the golf courses. AP was packed, but I was able to make a tee time online Sunday night.
Checked in at the starter and paired up with a father/son duo from New Jersey before being sent to the 1st tee, which had 2 groups waiting. Finally teed off around 9:20ish and finished in almost exactly 4 1/2 hours, which was expected. When we paid in the pro shop at 8:20, the group ahead of us had a 8:25 tee time. We waited on almost every hole, but everyone was moving along. I knew it would not be a less than 4 hour round and planned for it. Beautiful Vegas day with temps in the 80s, a slight breeze, and the drink cart around at least 5 times.
Conditions similar to 2 weeks ago. Great fairways, they're starting to grow out the rough, and decent desert sand (both bunkers were kind of heavy). The only change was a slight top dressing of sand on the greens. Only noticeable when you marked your ball and the greens still rolled pretty smooth with a medium fast speed.
I will not complain about paying $43 with the OB card, but I don't know what the "rack" rate was today.» Close

Friday, 3/3, with a 11:26 tee time for the $30 replay rate. Second part of a 36 hole day. Enjoyed a great breakfast in the restaurant between rounds, topped off with an excellent spicy bloody mary. We watched the 1st tee of Palm while we ate and saw nothing but carts continuously stacked up. Checked in, sent to the tee and joined by a local couple with only the wife playing, and finished in just under 4 and 1/2 hours, waiting on the 3 ahead of us most of the day, but nothing horrendous.
Conditions mirrored the Mountain course. Decent tee boxes with minimum divot damage. Fairways were nice and lush. Bunkers were OK, typical of the desert, with some pebbles. Rough was about 1-2 inches and not penal at all. Greens were smooth and fast, probably as fast as I've seen them. Any faster and it would be difficult to putt downhill without it running completely off.
Drink cart was around 3-4 times and the halfway house snack bar was open. Marshall was out and kept it moving on a busy Friday afternoon.» Close

Played on Friday, 3/3, 1st part of a 36 hole day at Angel Park using my free birthday round as a OB Sports card holder. Up and down with service today, bags were picked up as we got out of the car, quick check in, and then off to the cart area. Guy only strapped one bag on, which was weird, luckily I saw it before we took off. Checked in with the starter hoping to get out a bit early and he put us out 1st ahead of a 3some who had the 1st time but hadn't checked in yet. He also handled them when they pulled up to see us teeing off. We pulled away from them quickly, waited for a single who stalked us up 10 and joined up with him and finished in just over 3 hours.
Conditions were pretty good across the board. We found a few shaggy tee boxes but we may have been ahead of maintenance. Fairways were in good shape with no brown areas. Rough was still at a minimum, but a little bit longer than last time. Bunkers were good, fluffy, but seemed to have little pebbles in them. Greens were terrific and terrifying. Firm and fast, anything above the hole had a chance of rolling off.
All together, I can't complain about free, but it's worth the $42 rate for that time.» Close
