Played on Friday, 7/1, with a 6:50a tee time for $100. Joined by buddy Cliff as he continues his quest to play Golf Digest's 100 Greatest Public Courses (#65). There's no formal bag drop but the carts are lined up right in the parking lot. The attendants will bring the cart to the car and load the bag, then walk back. Friendly check in in the pro shop, which has the Wolf Creek logo available on almost anything you can think of, and a wide variety of hats/shirts. Grill opens at 6 and the prices are pretty good, and there's a drive-thru snack bar after 5 & 14 (can't but a drink cart on those hilly/curvy cart paths.
Course conditions are pretty good but are showing signs of heat of summer and the drought. Fairways are lush and green, but there are spots of thin/dirt. 17 has a huge GUR area in the middle of the tee shot landing area. The greens are spectacular. They are running on the fast side of medium/fast, and a little faster than the practice green. The tee boxes and rough are the areas where it looks like they are cutting back on the water and directing it to the greens/fairways. Tee boxes are cut really short and are thin, however, it doesn't affect the tee shots and the par 3s are in a bit better shape. The rough has been cut to about 1 inch and is just above fairway height to give some course definition. The rough is dry and brown, like the first few days overseed prep. Bunkers are in good shape, but there's no rakes so plenty of footprints.
While not the lush green appearances of the past, the course is playing really well. The accolades are well deserved and is overloaded with spectacular sights. Definitely a must play, even just once.» Close

Played Wednesday, 6/29, 6:15 tee time, with the Cocky&Lucky crew, joined by our youngest member, 11 year old Taco. They had us let a 2some out in front of us and we cruised around in a quick 3:05.
Course is in good shape considering we're in the dog days of summer, with 100+ temps for over the last month. Tee boxes were nice and level, with some divots on the par 3s. Fairways were firm and fast, with plenty of coverage, and just a handful of brown/thin areas. Rough was mostly just above fairway levels, giving it definition, but there was areas of thicker, gnarly Bermuda rough which gave the clubhead some issues. The only bunker I was in was still wet from the morning watering, but the others looked raked with some sand. I'm going to rate the greens based on the back 9, since we caught them after maintenance. Those greens were medium fast, receptive (a definite THUMP could be heard on shots), and smooth. The front 9 looked faster than they were rolling, maybe we caught them before they were cut, but if they were all back 9 quality, they were great. Greens were aerated on 6/21 and there are no signs of it.
WildHorse has a very long history: 6 different names, PGATour stop, and now owned by the city of Henderson and an Audubon Sanctuary program course. I wished I lived closer and could play here more often. The course is fun and a bit challenging, with a mix of short and LONG par 4s and challenging par 5s. The par 3 14th tips out at 252(!) and is a beast with water all along the right. While not a destination course, Wildhorse should be considered if you're looking for a nice economical course to fit in.» Close

Played in the GK Plays on 6/26, making the trek from Vegas with John_T. Would we win "GK'er who traveled the farthest award?" Nope, because our buddy Williebeamon14 flew down from Alaska to join us for the golf weekend.
Olivas Links seemed to have a great "look at me" feel this weekend. Maybe it was the slightly cloudy skies, and ocean breeze which provided for a cool day, but made the par 5 2nd hole feel like it was a par 7. Fairways were pretty lush, with just a handful of brown/thinning areas which did not affect play. Rough was pretty consistent, with thicker 2-3 inches just off and fading away. Bunkers had some deep heavy sand. Greens were more on the fast side, I just could not get a read or feel of them.
Olivas has a large putting green (big enough to handle all the groups heading out) and a busy driving range. The pro shop, while small, did have some nice merchandise. No real grill, but they did have hot dogs and a nice cooler with some local beer selections.
Thanks to JohnnyGK, Linksoul, Golf Moose, and OnCore for a great event.» Close

Played on Saturday, 6/25, at 6:30am, day 2 of our GK weekend with John_T and Williebeamon14. We were joined by a local and prepaid $44 each online (no extra fees). The 6:20 group was waiting for someone so they traded to get us out early and we finished in exactly 4 hours.
Course was in very good condition. Absolutely lush fairways that were carpet like. Rough was about 2-3 inches closer to the fairway but gradually faded away from the fairway. A few bunkers were still pretty wet but as it warmed up, they dried out, but still a bit heavy. Just about half the greens seemed to have a fungus issue causing some dirt areas, which seemed to be almost out of play with the hole placements today. However, it will be interesting if they can get it under control.
Full disclosure, I love Soule Park. There's just something about this course that makes me happy. Design. Conditions. Experience. Views. And a steal of a price. I would play here every time if I could, but early, as the late afternoon rounds tend to slow down. Only complaint, no bartender until 10, no drink cart either, but cold water coolers on the course. Food was good afterwards.» Close

Played on Friday, 6/24, with a 2:10 tee time, first round of our GK Plays trip. It started off with a rather cranky pro shop guy, may have been a bad day, but all 4 of us interacted with him at a different time and we all pointed out how pissy he was. F&B and outside services staff were excellent though.
The course conditions were what I would expect from a course with a "links" feel to it. Fairways were firm with plenty of run out and some browning areas which played the same as the green stuff. Rough varied, with some thick grass around some of the bunkers. Bunkers were in good condition, with decent sand and not thin. Greens were running a nice medium-fast, but not as fast as the practice green.
I've been wanting to play Rustic Canyon for a while and it did not disappoint. I loved the design and it's definitely worth the $51 late afternoon fee (but disappointed in the $7 "convenience fee" for making me pay in advance).» Close
