Played on Friday, 11/4, 9:56a, with John_T. Paid $80 with the Arroyo/Siena card. Cart was labeled and ready, easy check in, and the bar/grill was busy early.
Driving range: They are using TaylorMade TP5 Pix practice balls, will not be shocked if I start finding these on the course. They have installed a mat area and had it set for there. I don't know if that's just for the winter season or will be year round.
Course: Fantastic conditions. Tee boxes are mostly level, they allow them to go dormant in winter and they are starting to fade. I'm guessing they will be painted soon. Fairways were in pretty good condition. A few thin spots. The rough was up but there were patches of "dead" areas. I believe they reseed as it goes and did not shut down. There are some large aeration holes still visible in the fairways. The bunker renovation is completed, which reduced or elimination a number of bunkers. The new sand is deep, thick and heavy and the total opposite of what it has been for years. The greens were in outstanding shape. A bit soft with some unrepaired ball marks, but running as fast as I've seen them. There are some scary putts.
The only downside for me was an issue with enforcing pace of play, which is always an issue here with a 4.5 hours POP due to the amount of driving between holes (at least 3 long drives close to 5 minutes each). I understand we were playing as a 2 behind a 4, but the 3 behind us was waiting with us a few times. By the 4th hole, a couple of the guys ahead had stepped away to take calls, only to come back and finish out while the others stood around waiting, and an entire empty par 5 ahead of them. While we were in the 6th fairway, about 1:45 into our round (looking at least 5 hours), I finally saw a marshal and waved him over. I explained they were at least 2 holes behind now and he seemed ok with it. I think I finally broke him and the look on his face showed he didn't want to do anything, but he turned around and went up to the group. We arrived at the 7th tee to find the group waiting for us and they waved us through. Caught the next group on 10 and finished in a relaxing 4 hours. Here's the kicker, the pro shop can see where every group is and either didn't relay it or the marshal wasn't going to say anything. Endnote: There is a cart person on 18 waiting to clean the clubs. We told her to take a break, she had time. Ran into her in the pro shop and found the group we passed was just teeing off 17.» Close

Played on Friday, 10/28, with the crew from Cocky & Lucky Golf and Social Club. 7:55a tee time on a busy Nevada Day for $67 with the OB Card. Tee times are absolutely scarce in the Vegas Valley right now. If you're not booking 2 weeks out you're out of luck.
Conditions were absolutely spectacular. Tee boxes still need to be leveled but plenty of area to find a flat area. Fairways are lush and carpet like, the reseed has taken nicely. The rough is where I like it, 1-2 inches, enough to stop a ball from rolling into the desert and just enough to penalize you for being off the fairway. Bunkers were a mixed bag, some fluffy, some tight, and plenty of pebbles. Greens were incredible. Soft and receptive but really fast for the amount of undulation.
Customer service was great. Bags were picked up in the parking lot. Easy and fast check in. The morning bartender knows my order when I walk in. Drink cart was around twice per 9 and the snack shack was open early at the triangle where 7 green, 8 tee, and 10 tee all meet. Even being super busy, we finished in a few shaded under 4 hours, only waiting on the usual backup on the 1st 3 holes.
Palm is a fun course. While it is short, it does play to a par 70, with 5 par 3s, and 3 par 5s. There's plenty of chances to score low, but if you're off in any part of the game, it's going to beat you up.» Close

Played on Sunday, 9/4, in a Folds of Honor charity scramble with John_T, Larry, and Cliff. Outside staff had all the carts set and ready to go early. Food and beverage was great, and they were running a $2 beer special with a big selection. The prices for the other items were relatively low for a golf course.
I've driven past this course dozens of times as you see if right off the freeway as you leave Mesquite and enter Arizona but have never played it. I didn't have high expectations but was pleasantly surprised. The front 9 is flat with a handful of water holes. The back 9 is incredible. Just a ton of elevation changes with a couple of high elevated tees, a couple of big carries, and a couple of straight uphill holes. Conditions were very good for a late summer in Mesquite, where temps usually hit the 100-teens. Tee boxes need some leveling as many felt they were crowned or sidehill. Fairways were outstanding, no thin or dirt areas, and playing fast and firm. Rough was about 1-2 inches along the fairways but long and lush around the greens. The greens rolled smooth but were a bit long and medium speed.
I'm definitely going back and is worth a play in the Mesquite area. Resort prices are around $85, but stay and play options are available.» Close
