I played in the Guru outing on 8-9-17. I was determined to play here ever since seeing someone’s video of the ‘magic doors’ from last year’s outing. Everything about the day was just amazing. The clubhouse is the most impressive I’ve seen. I loved the huge atrium-like lobby with the creek running through it. Having my own locker with my name on it was pretty special.
As the others have said, the course conditions were just about perfect with the exception of the bunkers. I really enjoyed the layout with the views and variety of holes. The length from the forward tees was a tad long for me at 5500+ but with the help of our caddy, Dave, I did much better than I thought I would. This was my first experience playing with a caddy. I was pretty nervous about it at first but Dave was just great. Reading the distances and breaks was a huge help. Most shots I was ready and confident to hit, but many I wasn’t, and that’s when Dave’s advice and encouragement made all the difference.
I feel so lucky to have been able to play here. I can’t wait for next time!» Close

Played with the Gurus on 8-8-17. It’s a nice no-frills course that was quite fun to play. The fairways and tees were all in great shape as were the greens, though they were slow. I was in a couple of bunkers and the sand was clean and white but really coarse. It felt kind of odd. I didn’t like having to carry the rake from the cart to the bunkers, though. I was too hot and tired for that much extra work. The ditch on the right side of all holes was pretty nasty if you went in. The rough was long enough to swallow the balls and with all the other debris down there it was just good motivation to try harder to hit straight!
Customer service was great. Everyone was very friendly at check in and they later came around the course offering us water and ice pops. Nice touch. This is a good course for a casual or ‘warm up’ round. I would consider playing it again when in the area.
Many thanks to Johnny and The Club at Sunrise for the fun afternoon.» Close

I played on 8-8-17. It was my first time here. I hadn’t heard or read much about the courses beforehand. When I called to make my tee time, I asked which course had more trees, only thinking about being able to stay cool in the hot weather. The guy on the phone recommended the Lakes course, so I arrived planning to play that one. Check in was easy from bag drop to the pro shop. Apparently, there were very few players out that day but they were all on the Lakes course. After waiting at the first tee for about ten minutes, I decided to play the Desert course instead. When I got to the first tee there were two gentlemen there who immediately invited me to join them. They looked like a couple of interesting characters and I just had a feeling I’d have a fun time playing with them.
The course was in pretty good shape. The fairways were equally green and brown but had good cushioned coverage throughout and provided lots of roll. The tees were level with minimal divot damage. The first green was lightly sanded but all the others were just beautiful, smooth, with no ball marks to fix (how refreshing!) The rolled medium speed and held shots really well. The bunkers- gosh, there were a lot of them- were pretty bad, being hard with lots of stones and very little sand.
I enjoyed the layout a lot. The forward tees are just the right length for me at 5400 yds. There are some really fun par 3’s, #15 in particular, and several doglegs with the turn being tight and narrow just before the green. There are some elevated greens which were even more challenging when the wind picked up on the back nine.
We finished in just under 4 hours. We never saw anyone else on the course so it was a very fun and relaxing round. I would happily play here again and would like to try the Lakes course also.» Close

Played yesterday with Robule and two of his buddies. The weather was a toasty 107 but I came better prepared for the heat than last time we played. Tee time was 9am-ish and from the beginning it was slow going with the twosome in front of us but got better on the back.
The course wasn’t as green as last time but overall still in really good shape. There were some thin/brown/bare patches in the fairways, rough and around some greens, but nothing that caused any bad lies. I spent a good part of the day playing in the sand. I lost count of how many bunkers, maybe 6 or 7… or 8? All but one of them had decent sand. The greens were a little bumpy and pretty slow.
I like this course a lot. It has some really fun holes. I had been looking forward to the par 3 #12, hoping the pin would be at the lower level back of the green this time. It was, and I’ll just say that it’s so much easier when it’s up front! I really want to play here again. I need to finish #18 without losing a ball in the creek below the green. Fun day!» Close

Played today, 7-31-17. The weather was 98 and very humid. I went as a single and paired with a very nice father and son. I’ve played here a couple times before but it had been about 2 years. My first impression today was that it was the greenest I’ve ever seen it. The view of the course from the clubhouse, by the huge putting green, was just gorgeous.
Fairways were mostly green with just a bit of browning here and there. They were very short giving me some trouble with the tight lies but no bad lies all day. On much of the course there really wasn’t any rough to speak of, being cut about the same length as the fairways. There were a few areas closer to the greens were it was a little longer, maybe an inch and a half and very dense so the balls sat up nicely.
The greens were pretty nice. They were a bit soft, held shots well and rolled medium fast with just a few little bumps here and there. Of course there were plenty of ball marks…
The bunkers were so much better than last time I was here. They appear to all have new white sand. I was in only one, a fairway bunker. The sand was very thin, but no complaints- I still had a long way to go and I was able to get some good distance. The sand in the greenside bunkers looked deep and fluffy but many were wet in the middle.
There was a lot of GUR today, mostly affecting the tee boxes. Most were level, some a little chewed up. On #4, the whites were moved up to the red. On #10 the black and and blue tee boxes were closed and moved down to the lower level – about 130 and 122 yds. The bridge to the #16 tees was under repair with a very rocky, bumpy dirt path detour. The red tees on #16 were closed and moved back to the whites.
The beverage cart only came around once but there were six water stations on the course. I really like this course. There are so many super fun holes. Highly recommended.» Close
