Rode the Blacks (3020/53.4/78) in 2H, 15M using Forelinx. Paired with Greg twilight in sunny, breezy conditions in the low 70's.

Both Cimarron courses were partially washed away in the February, 2019 torrential rains that resulted in the wash being about 10' deep with fast moving water. They have done an INCREDIBLE job after the place was closed for repairs for most of 2019. I have never seen the course look and play this good.

John Fought design, links style executive layout with an excellent mixture of holes. Very fun short course with 17 par 3's and one short par 4. The par 3's feature a couple holes over 200 from the Blacks, with the shortest at 118 with a good mixture of lengths in between. I used almost every iron in my bag on tee shots. Few sand traps and #18 is the only hole with a water hazard. Nice place to work on your irons.

Tees were lush and nicely maintained with only a few spots that needed divot attention.

Fairways do not come into play much, but they were lush and well maintained.

Rough was lush, mowed down with good coverage and was nice to play from.

Sand traps were below average. Hard packed even thought they had been recently raked. Many waste areas if you get wide of the rough can come into play.

Greens are very large for a shorter course. Firm and putted medium speed with few ball marks. Chipping is over and around mounds, so you have to be creative &/or precise.

GPS on the basic carts is to the front/middle/back of the green only. All grass driving range. The customer service was good, quick efficient check-in with the pro shop. No drink cart. Recommended.

Played today the 22nd of Jan. Last review was back on Dec 29th 2019. As shown in the pictures that is the way all fairways are, Dormant. The Brown thin fairways has clumps of grass throughout the course. If your playing ball down just hope your ball doesn't come to rest along side a patch of crab grass because that can cause some serious hurt to your wrist. Tee boxes were pretty much level, Sand bunkers had good sand in them and the greens were the best part of the course nice and pure, hard to read at times but nice. Customer Service at check in was friendly and good. The Restaurant at the course has good food and real good service (thank you Kathy).

I used to play Eldo quite frequently when I lived in Westchester, but not so much any more. I have always enjoyed playing here, in part because it is a course that has never treated me very well. (I know that sounds strange, but enjoyed trying to shoot well on a course which I struggle on) Another struggle today, because if you don't hit it straight here, the course just punishes you. Too many boogies !

No complaint as to condition, not great, but hey, it's the middle of winter. Some thin fairways, rough was inconsistent, greens rolled well, although I could not make anything. Two bunkers I found had plenty of sand.

Still not thrilled about paying $41 to walk this course. A bit overpriced in my opinion. Good solid course, despite the cost. One of these days I'll beat this course !

First off this morning. 3 H POP for $49 is well worth it. Course has started to show its colors and is improving. Now that the weather is warming, the fairways are greening up and showing good life. Though damp this AM when we started, they still all played very well. Tee boxes are lush and over seeding took well. Traps were all fine (in one and all others looked fine). Rough was 1" and damp sticky. Greens were terrific (IMO). Chipped/putted very well and had excellent speed (and all mowed before we arrived at any hole). Had two CPO holes but no others. I can only think that as it warms up (please) the course will even get better?

Played in the GK Cup final here on Sunday with mnielson, JohnnyGK and Nickesquire. First time here and really enjoyed the course.

Conditions are what you'd expect in winter except for the excellent greens, which were definitely the high point. They were smooth, fast and accepted full shots well, but shorter shots tended to run out quite a bit. Really fun to putt and I feel like I was just getting a good feel for them toward the very end of the round. Fairways were thin but with decent coverage. Rough was a little spottier; my ball ended up on bare spots once or twice. The bunkers I was in – one fairway and one greenside – were both good, especially the greenside one, which was excellent. Blue tee boxes were a little beat up but not a big deal.

I really enjoyed the layout, which snakes through housing but also has some spots where several holes converge and provide less of a "housing tract" course. Friendly staff and seems like they have great rates, too. Definitely recommended, and I'd like to play it again sometime with lusher conditions. Thanks to Johnny and Nick for setting it up and thanks to the course to having us out!

Finally, big congrats to Mike for capturing the Cup! Fun day!

For my first outing of 2020 at Spanish Bay the course did not disappoint. The views are always spectacular here and the swell was up making the waves in the background even more impressive. With ocean views on 17 of the holes the scenery is never dull at Spanish Bay. Add in the half dozen holes right on the water and it makes for a fabulous outing.

Course conditions were top notch. Tee boxes and fairways were just short of a perfect 10. The only thing holding the fairways back from a perfect rating were a few damp spots. They were small and really not in play but while walking in the fairway I noticed a couple areas throughout the day that were damp. Other than that the fairways were a dark emerald green and lush. They were an absolute joy to hit off of.

Greens were smooth as silk with very few pitch marks noticeable. Greens have some severe undulations so getting a ball to hold can be tricky at times. They rolled at a medium fast pace.

Sand traps were also very nice. They have pure white fluffy sand. I did land in one that was a little damp. Given it rained the previous night, it’s understandable.

The one ding on the course was the skirt area to the side and behind the greens. The “rough” in these areas was only about 1” deep but patchy at times. I struggled on a few holes getting clean contact with my ball just off the green.

Other than the course is in excellent condition. Of course the restaurant/bar overlooking the course and the ocean is also well worth stopping at afterwards.

As a reminder, there isn’t a range at Spanish Bay but you can go up the road and use the range at Spyglass Hill or Pebble Beach. Spanish does have a large practice putting green with some undulations on it to get you prepared for the greens out on the course. Also, for those taking a cart, it’s cart path only.

Rode the Blacks on Creekside/Ridgeline 73.8/142/7012 this morning 1/21/2020. Thanks to Moorpark CC fitting me in between a small outing. POP was only 3 hrs with beautiful weather in the low 60's with hardly any wind.

Had not been here in 16 months or so. Conditions were pretty good for mid January.

Greens were in great shape. Soft on approaches yet putting and chipping like glass. Putting just beautiful. You had to be careful on downhillers and could be semi-aggressive on uphillers. I could putt these bent grass greens everyday. Rated 8.5/10

Rough had a beautiful contrast brown dormant look in compasrion to the semi-green fairways. Rough was mostly mowed down dormant brown. Decent condition. Rated 6/10

Fairways semi-lush, tightly mowed and ball sitting up for the most part. Did not have any bad lies in fairways. Rated 7/10.

Tees were mostly level and lush and in good shape. Rated 7.5/10.

Was in greenside bunker on number 9 Creekside which was raked and contained a nice amount of sand. Saw multiple maintenance workers working on fairway and greenside bunkers on the Ridgeline 9.

Very challenging layout from the Blacks on Creekside, nice challenge from Ridgeline and Canyon Crest as well. Course has some epic elevation changes, tough par 4's and some birdie holes here and there. I love coming here to challenge myself. I would highly reccomend Moorpark CC--terrific greens, fun and challenging layout and peaceful area to play.

Played 3 days after our very own Rat-Patrol and agree with his assessment.
Greens were running at that 10-10.5 range I'd guess. Fairways, tee boxes, and rough all excellent. I'd probably argue that the bunkers had too much sand. Sunk a good 4 inches into one entrance and had a great fried egg/burial on hole 10. POP was slow, as expected with the difficult conditions. Still, right around tournament time is the absolute best time to play out here due to the excellent conditions.

I play Morro Bay every week, and have done so for the past 18 years since I retired. Never have the greens been in better condition than today. Firm, fast but hold high shots into the green. Overall the course is in great shape. I was not in any of the three bunkers, so I can't really comment, but they looked good. If you have not played Morro Bay with fast greens, you will likely three or four putts several holes. Any putt above the hole on seven or twelve that does not go in will be 10 or 12 feet off the green for your next putt. But as there is no water and few bunkers the course rates 2 or 3 strokes lower than most courses.

I played last Sunday with the first group of the GK Cup final. Overall, the course is in great shape. The greens were probably the best part of the course. There are a lot of narrow fairways with some severe slopes here and there. I found the angles off the tees to be not in line with my slice and many times I was hitting recovery shots from the right rough and around or under trees. Mostly my fault, as the course is not terribly long and there was substantial run out on many of my poor drives. Hitting less than driver might not be an issue on most of the holes.

I thought the greens were fast and very difficult to read. I'm not sure what was going on, because I played here recently and did not have this kind of difficulty. I missed a few short putts and only one I remember that I pulled it; otherwise, it was just weird breaks that I did not see. I liked the fast greens and they were very soft. Well struck shots would hold but I just was not striking the ball well for the most part. We had plenty of ball marks to fix courtesy of the groups ahead of us.

The tees were good; we played the blues. I don't recall any real issues. Good grass coverage and level.

Fairways and rough were fine. Good turf coverage and great rollout. Like Johnny mentioned, the grass will only get better with warmer weather.

The course has good rates, decent food, and nice conditions. I can recommend playing here and just may try to get this course into my rotation.

Had the opportunity to play the private Las Vegas Country Club at the January 13th Southern Nevada Golf Association non-tournament event.

The parkland style course reflects old school Vegas, featuring a classic layout with tree-lined fairways, fast greens and fluffy sand, along with a nice practice facility. However, what really distinguished the course were the immaculate conditions and exceptional customer service.

The fairways reminded me of those you see at a PGA tournament, perfectly groomed and lush with few, if any thin spots. The greens were perfect, rolled smoothly and did not have many ball marks.

The par three holes all featured carries over water. With that in mind, a highlight of the day was checking out the small airplane sticking out of the lake on hole number 11. A plaque on the tee box explains how and why the airplane ended up in the lake.

The course is located in an older part of Las Vegas, thus the houses that border the course are small and date back to the 60s. After a few holes, we basically ignored the houses and just focused on the beautiful course grounds and views of the high-rise strip casinos.

As I mentioned, the customer service was outstanding. The staff made me feel as if I was a member of the country club. A highlight was the halfway house, which featured complimentary snacks and a full-service cocktail bar. The folks who worked the facility were very friendly and remembered us (and our drink orders) as we came through the second nine.

Play was a bit slow (4:45) due to the number of people playing in the event. However, I think it would go much faster for a regular round of golf.

I found out that playing privileges are available for tourists who stay at the nearby Westgate Hotel and that for others, a phone call to the club might get you a tee time. For now, I look forward to the chance to play the LVCC at another SNGA outing.

Thursday January 16th… Had a great time at Reflection Bay with JohnnyGK and Rob1563. The course was in excellent shape with smooth fairways, quick greens and beautiful water and mountain views.

The practice area featured only mats and nets for full shots. However, the chipping and pitching area allowed for a good warm up on those all-important short shots.

We teed off on number 10 and took our time…taking pictures and letting a couple of groups play through, yet finished in well under four hours.

While all the holes were fun to play, the par three 8th and par five 9th, which ran along Lake Las Vegas, provided a truly memorable finish to our round.

Service was terrific. The staff was very friendly and helpful handling our clubs. And the free beverage after the round was a great way to end the day.
