Played Scotch Pines today in a scramble format tournament with a shotgun start at 10am. Check in was easy and smooth the staff were very friendly and the cart was comfortable with plenty of power. The course has some beautiful views of the mountains north and East of Payette Idaho. The course was extremely enjoyable with tree lined fairways many elevation changes. Definitely have to place your drives properly with many doglegs both left and right to keep the trees out of play. For long hitters you need to be in the fairways to take advantage with a mix of short, medium and long par 4s. Most of the par 5s are reachable in two for long hitters if you keep your drives out of the trees.

The tee boxes had a few holes with divot damage but were mainly in good to very good condition. The fairways and rough were lush and reasonably easy to hit from leaving divots which we all replaced. Sand traps were in good condition and reasonably soft to hit from. Most greens were soft playing at a medium speed. A few were a little bumpy from being punched two weeks earlier. I loved the course and will definitely play this course again!

It is in Payette Idaho approximately 1 hour west of Boise. I feel the course is worth the drive if you are in the area!

Played Shadow Valley Friday with a 5:30 tee time, check in was quick and easy paid $35 with a cart, warmed up and went to the first tee. POP was 3.5, even with waiting at a couple tee boxes.

The course is in great shape including the greens which were punched 2 1/2 weeks ago they still rolled true with only a couple still bumpy a little. The tee boxes were in great condition the fairways the same, the sand traps were easy to get out of and were soft. The rough was lush and fair to hit out of with firm strokes. Always a great course to play with amazing views of the Boise foothills. One of my favorite courses to play!

Played BanBury Golf Course Thursday morning with a tee time of 11:54, but were called up 15 minutes early. The staff in the club house were friendly and efficient we got our electric cart which was very comfortable and plenty of power. BanBury has nice practice facilities with grass driving range, practice chipping greens and sand traps and a nice large putting green. POP was 3.5 hours with waiting at at least 4 holes.

The course itself was in immaculate condition, part of the extra cost-$72 with cart. The tee boxes were lush with only a couple with some divot damage, the fairways and rough were lush, though players did not seem to be replacing the divots they created with turf or sand. The sand traps were in good condition and the maintenance crew were refreshing them with new sand. The greens were in excellent shape running very smooth, though a few had divot damage which was under repair and I fixed two or three each green. The course had multiple fingers of the Boise River running through it with many trees and sand traps all of which can come into play!

I plan on playing BanBury again though not frequently due to the cost compared to the many great courses here in the Boise area!

Played Eagle Hills Tuesday, 8/3/21 with a 7:25 tee time. Check in was smooth and easy, got our cart and headed to the first tee. POP was 3:20 minutes, we only waited on the first tee box. The tee boxes were in very good condition lush with only a few having divot damage. We played from the white tees. The fairways were lush with one or two having a few thin areas, the rough was lush mainly 1-3” with some ares pushing 4-5 inches. The rough was playable with firm strokes, the sand traps appeared to have been refreshed with new sand and very playable, the greens were soft and lush and held shots well.

Have heard the irrigation water will be shut down in early September due to low water levels which may impact course conditions. I’ll keep updating conditions. For now each course I have played has been in good to very good condition! Recommend Eagle Hills with it’s beautiful tree lined fairways and some great views of the Boise foothills.

Played Warm Springs GC today with a 9:54am tee time. The staff were friendly and helpful checking in went very smoothly. Practice range was from artificial green mats. There was a couple practice greens one with a sand trap, though the practice greens were in just ok conditions. POP WAS 4 1/2 hours and we waited at at least 10 holes. Saw one Marshall on the front nine.

Once on the first tee found the tee boxes in good to very good shape with some divot damage but all level and lush. Played the White tees. The fairways were wet but lush mainly with a few thin. The rough was lush but with a firm stroke playable unless the ball was deep in. Then would club up and take a firmer stroke. The sand traps were thin but playable chipped on in and left another 6” from the cup, it was a good sand day! The greens were the highlight! Mainly very smooth with one maybe two greens slightly bumpy, rolling medium fast some with breaks a few with minor undulations. The fairways were mainly tree lined though most gave generous landing zones. Water came into play on many holes through the course. There were a couple elevated tees but mainly a flat course with some doglegs.

Had a very good time, worth the fee, planning on playing again.

Played Boise Ranch Golf Course today with a 9:07 tee time. Checked in early warmed, up the range was grass, but very thin. There was nice chip and putt greens with a sand trap in between in very good condition. Staff were great, and called us up a couple minutes early. POP was 3:45 riding, temperature was 94 at tee off, but is an easily walkable course.
Played from the Gold tees and enjoyed the course!

Conditions were good overall the tee boxes needing the most improvement, there were many divot marks, and a few boxes had bare spots. The fairways were lush at times thin, with many being somewhat wet. Fairways allowed for decent roll. The rough was lush with some thin spots and could affect your shot. The greens were in good condition mainly lush with a few thin spots but had lots of ball marks that were smoothed out but some greens were bumpy. Pace was medium some with undulations but there were some tricky reads. The sand traps were in good to excellent shape! Water comes into play on multiple holes on the front and back nines with one of the par threes requiring total carry.

Over all an enjoyable course to play and worth the $42 with a cart fee. I will be playing Boise Ranch again.

Played Sand Hollow Tuesday June 29th with a tee time of 4:30pm. Check in went smooth and quickly paying $58 with a sleeve of ProV1s, summer time prices. We picked up our carts, loaded up and were ready to start when the wind hit at 25-30 mile per hour gusts and sand clouds. We decided to wait. The winds died down about 25 minutes later and we teed off at 5pm. Temperature was still 98 degrees we had plenty of water to stay hydrated.

The course was in immaculate condition from tee box to green. Very green lush, with perfect mowing stripes. The red sand traps were beautiful and good to hit out of, they were well placed and abundant in number. The fairways were soft but still allowed for reasonable roll, the rough was lush and could grab your ball coming out but not unfairly. The greens rolled fast and with a good approach shot soft enough to hold. Plenty of undulations and tricky breaks, rolling fast to medium fast, but fair.

Will definitely play this course again especially at summer rates, well worth the price. We finished our round in 3:45 minutes so good POP. Finished our short golf vacation with a great course! Highly recommend playing Sand Hollow if you get a chance, the views, particularly from the back nine were spectacular!

Played Sunbrook Sunday after returning to St. George from playing Wolf Creek. We were glutens for punishment since the temperature was 104 degrees. But it was worth it!

Upon arriving we went into the club house the staff was very friendly helpful and efficient. The price was great between the green fees and a sleeve of ProV1s cost was $42 with afternoon rate. We got our carts loaded and headed to the first tee of the Black Rock nine. Sunbrook has three sets of nine each different. Black Rock has black lava rock that can come into play on the majority of its nine holes. We then played The Pointe for our second nine. The Pointe is far hillier with water coming into play on numerous holes. The 8th and 9th OC The Pointe are great finishing holes a par 5 with water between your drive and second shot and along the full left side of the green on your approach shot. The 9th is a medium long all uphill par 3 with a medium size green and lots of undulations.

The conditions for both nines were very good, green and lush. The sand traps were red lava sand which my friend said were fair to hit out of with a solid stroke. The rough was mostly lush with a few areas under repair, the tee boxes had been punched in the last month
and needed some work, they were level and were on their way back.

Once again a very fun course well worth the price, and a consistent POP at 3:45 for the round. Recommend playing Sunbrook if you visit St. George.

Played the Green Spring GC today with an 11:00am tee time. Arrived and went into the club house to check in, staff were friendly and helpful informed us the driving range was under maintenance but the chipping and putting greens were available and in great shape. The starter called us up a few minutes early, POP was under 3 1/2 hours with a 98 degree temperature at the start. Fee was $28 senior rate and well worth the price!

The tee boxes fairways rough and greens were in amazing shape considering the heavy use and high temperatures. All were lush, soft and very green, the sand traps were well maintained with rakes and fair to hit out of. There were two greens that had small bare spots but were being attended to.

The front nine has more difficulty, particularly holes 5 & 6, but very fun with the ravine in play, especially with a front pin position like today on the par 3. The par 5 6th hole is reachable in two with a solid second shot! Both holes were beautiful and fun. The back nine has more elevation changes with numerous holes having water in play and a ravine that comes into play.

Overall a great deal and very enjoyable course, I recommend it if you’re in St. George!

Played Wolf Creek Sunday with an 8:10 start time. Staff greeted us at the truck with our carts, gave us a lot of helpful information and super friendly. Checked in and the staff again super friendly efficient and we went to the all grass driving range and putting/chipping green, were well maintained and supplied with range balls.

Started right on time the starter took our picture, very friendly guy who told us about maintenance going on and to take our time and enjoy the round. The heavy use this course gets and the high temps weighed heavy on the tee boxes though you could tell they work hard to keep them in good shape. Fairways and rough were lush with a few thin areas, sand traps were firm but with a solid stroke definitely playable. The greens were in great shape considering the heavy use and high temperatures. They were smooth with a few bumpy areas on one or two and rolled fast to medium fast with a lot of undulations.

The layout was spectacular with amazing views water features and of course the bluffs and red rock. Very fun and enjoyable course with many challenging holes. Would recommend playing this course. Plan on playing it again! The price was $110, dropping to $100 in a week. Well worth the price.

Played Sunbrook later in the afternoon after returning to St George. Will be dropping that review in later off to play Green Spring.

Played Southgate with a noon tee time. Temp was 94 ended the round at 99, not bad but had to hydrate. Staff were excellent and friendly teed off a few minutes early. Cost was great, 56 with a cart, bottles of water a gaterade and a sleeve of Pro V1s.

Starter was friendly and helpful. The one issue was the tee boxes, looked like they were placing temporary grass over badly damaged areas, but heat was hindering. Most boxes were level but at least six I had to stand outside the box due to the in-levelness.

The fairways and rough were lush with a few thin areas. The sand traps were in good condition, ended in two. The greens were fast to medium fast, I repaired at least two up to four divots most greens. But previous divot damage was repaired from the day before. The front nine had tree lined fairways and many had water that came into play, the layout was fun but offered challenges and forced proper club selection from the tees. The back nine was laid out in the surrounding foothills offering a complete different layout. Both were very enjoyable and challenging. Hoping they improve the tee boxes, at least the white boxes where we played from.

Would recommend playing Southgate, had a very fun round. Playing Wolf Creek in Mesquite Nevada tomorrow!

Played Desert Canyon Friday, June 25th with a tee time of 10:04, played the white tees today. POP was 3:50 in 94 degree heat.

Staff were friendly and helpful. The tee boxes had multiple boxes with heavy divot damage and a few were not level without standing outside the box with the ball inside. Fairways rough and sand traps were in very good condition, the greens were smooth but each hole repaired at least 2 - 3 ball marks. The greens had many ball mark repairs with bare spots which were bumpy. The greens rolled fast 7/10 pace when there were no bumps.

Overall a very enjoyable day playing the tree lined front nine and the desert and canyon back nine.

Heading to St George Utah to play five courses there this week! More reviews coming!
