Monthly golf group out at Anaheim Hills yesterday on a glorious 'summer' day in March - the first we've had here in a long while so we timed it perfectly. We had four groups and started with a 9am tee time. I was in the final group so got out around 9:30am.

Course is in very nice shape right now after all the rains and appears to have drained rather well as I don't recall any bog or marsh areas throughout the property. Fairways are nice and green with good lies all afternoon, while the rough is thick but manageable all around. Tee boxes were mostly flat and in good shape, while the bunkers were okay with a few a bit on the thin side but mostly good.

Greens were in good shape but rolled a bit inconsistently from hole to hole, however that may have had a lot to do with the weather temps changing quite a lot from start time to the back nine. But overall they rolled very nicely if you could adjust to the varying speeds. A few tricky greens for sure here, and many are quite small, but fair enough if you put a good stroke on the ball.

POP was pretty poor but I can't determine if that was simply the groups ahead of me from my team, but overall to finish in around 5.5 hours is not ideal. The good part is though that we had plenty of cart service opportunities and there's a great little snack shack (with a very nice hot dog deal) at the turn - very convenient.

I would definitely recommend Anaheim Hills right now in terms of conditions, but it's also a rather quirky and somewhat difficult course to manage and no amount of sunshine can change that. I suppose your opinion of the layout all depends on how well you did or didn't score on that particular day.
Played Rancho San Joaquin at 3/17/23. Pace of play was ok. They allowed 5somes, so pace of play could be slow at times. Some greens were punched and sanded. Some greens have not punched yet, but look like they will get punched soon. Fairways are mixed of grass and weeds. Some areas are very muddy due to recent rain.
Fairways and tee boxes were punched and sanded today. Seemed like greens may have been punched or sanded a few weeks ago, still a lot of sand on the greens.

Haven’t played this course in a few years and was a little let down to see the conditions have deteriorated a bit. It’s been raining a lot so I’ll give them some slack for trying to keep things in shape, but showing up to punched fairways was a surprise. Hopefully by next month things will recover and it will be the nice beautiful fairways I remember. In addition, there was a ton of heavy construction going on, as another reviewer mentioned, it looks like it’s soon to be full of new homes on the course.

Aside from all the negatives, the course layout is still excellent, with a nice variety of short and long holes to keep it interesting. The greens were tough as always, and avoiding 3 putts was the main challenge. Range was mats, practice balls were new, facilities were great. Come back in a month and hopefully it will have improved conditions.
Ran a really fun Golf Moose / Private Course outing Monday at Los Coyotes CC. Saw a bunch of GKers there, great playing conditions, good weather, excellent service … all smiles. Fantastic staging set up for an outing.

Played with GKers rgm2525, hammer74 and tomokir. Awesome time despite playing terrible. Made a “That’s Golf” crazy downhill breaking birdie putt on #17 to put little Neosporin on my scorecard. LOL.

Conditions cart path only featuring soft, smooth, medium speed greens. Lush, not cut (understandably due wetness) fairways that provide next to no roll but never a thin lie (full lush coverage). Thick sticky 4 to 6 inch rough which was difficult to find you ball in and especially hit from. Well maintained tee boxes and bunkers. Looks like they might be in the middle of a sand replenishing project as some bunkers had fresher, more white sand than others.

Check out the new PHOTOS I posted. Come out to our Monday, Private Course outings :)

I highly recommend Los Coyotes CC as a course to consider to host your outing or become a member.
Late review. Played in Laughlin a few weeks ago and with the weather in Vegas dicey I thought I'd post all my reviews of the area. This is the premier golf course in the area and a real treat to play. A real challenge except they could use one more tee marker. Plenty of different tee boxes not in use, however it was either 6,600 or 6,100. They even had a combo set for the forward tees, can't believe they didn't have a set at 6,300 or so. Set in the hills above the river I assume it is always windy here and it blew between one and two clubs pretty steady. Fairways looked a little spotty but played fine, bunkers had good soft sand and greens were smooth and fast. They did a great job with this piece of property. Very scenic.
Just a really outstanding golf course as many lucky GKers already know. A must play.
Course is pretty pricey, but I think some of the casinos have stay and play packages. Staff was top notch and I played late and on the pro shop recommendation I had dinner in the restaurant after the round. Place was busier than the golf course but quite tasty and reasonably priced. I highly recommend both.
Fun and scenic layout. Nice contrast with green fairways, yellow rough, and brown mountains. Course was in pretty good shape. Fairways were a bit thin and spotty, bunkers were good and greens were smooth and ran medium fast. It's a fair challenge with a lot of good golf holes especially the closing few. Course was very busy and we waited a lot but still finished in 4:30. Website had some deal times and I think I paid $50 for an afternoon tee time. Definitely worth playing and even worth the drive from Vegas.
Had a hard time booking thru golf now, plenty of hot deal times listed but they would disappear when you tried to book. I ended up with a $20 tee time at 2:10. They have 8 min. tee times and the course was packed. I was able to bounce around a little and played in 4 hrs. Course was in rough shape. The greens were the best part, med fast and mostly smooth. Bunkers were OK. The fairways were thin, painted green and spotty. Had to bump the ball. Outside the fairways was a lot of hardpan. I liked the course and the price was right but I would check back on conditions.
Got out here at 3:30 right before they closed and he would only charge me the nine hole rate which was $30 vs $49. It seems none of the courses in the area have twilight rates and regular rates seem to be on the high side. I don't know when the season is down here but all the courses were a little on the spotty side as well as a lot of dormancy. I played through 2 groups and played the front in 40 mins, so I just kept going. I liked the course it was in decent winter shape. The greens were medium fast, the traps were OK and I didn't have any bad lies in the dormant fairways. I thought it was a fun layout with some nice mountain views (with snow). Course was better than the reviews I read but probably not worth the full rack rate.
Local Muni that feels like a family run business. Everybody was extremely nice and friendly.
Course is flat and tree lined and the fairways are dormant and lightly painted green. Rough is only slightly longer than the fairways. Traps had decent sand, greens were smooth and medium fast. Decent locals' course in a nice setting, probably at least 10 degrees warmer than Vegas in the winter. Got a $25 hot deal and that seemed like the right price, the cart was included but this course is perfect for walking.
Late review, was headed to Vegas two weeks ago and the weather was supposed to be cold and miserable. Decided to drive to Laughlin and play everything in the area.
It rained all day until 3:00pm. Got out here when it stopped, and it was the only day without wind. One person works the bar, restaurant, and proshop. There seemed to be a miscommunication with the price, it was $45 for 18 and $35 for nine she charged me $35 and I thought she was just being nice. I was still surprised by the price. The course was dormant but surprisingly very dry, except for the areas outside the rough which seem to be red clay. I liked the setting, the mountains had snow on them which I assume is rare. The course is a flat links style layout with a handful of interesting holes. Not too difficult, the tips are 7100 yards so maybe from there. The course drained well and I didn't have any bad lies in the dormant fairways, bunkers were fine but wet and the greens were spotty, bumpy and medium to slow in speed. After 9 holes the other employee was waiting for me to chase me off the course. I told him about the miscommunication and offered to pay the $10 difference and he just seemed to let it go and told me where the tenth tee was. It was strange. I liked the course but it struck me as a maximum $50 course when in good shape and on a nice day
Posting a late review of Escena. My son and I played February 19, 2023. Played a twilight round so we only finished 15 holes, which was unfortunate since i was on track for a personal best round.

In any case, course is always great. Pro shop staff, starter, and restaurant staff were great. Everyone very helpful.

As for course, the conditions were what I would expect for high season in Palm Springs. Tee boxes were in great condition with very little damage.

Fairways were in vertical good shape. Not much rough to speak of on this course, but the little there is was also in good shape.

Greens were running a bit slow. They had very few pitch marks (which I would fix when i came across them).

Only flaw was that the sand was not as fluffy as it has been in the past. Still pretty good, just not as good as previous plays.

All in all, a great course and will be playing it again in April.
Greens are outstanding—some of the best in the county. Fast, smooth, and fun. (A couple have some issues of fungus or something around the edges, but it rarely comes into play.). The bunkers are great. Most fairways are in decent shape. Pace of play was sluggish until the threesome in front of us let our foursome play through. After we played through, the Marshal thanked us for asking them to let us play through because—according to him—they were backing up the whole course. I’m not sure how our playing through helped those behind us or why he wouldn’t directly address the problem, but after passing the three sole on hole 12, we never saw another golfer. Love the layout here. Lots of fun.
