Tee boxes over seeded but very playable. 5 hrs for a Friday at 12:26. I really like this place because it doesn't seem like a typical Los Track. Conditions are are above average tee to green.
Played here today with fellow GKers, mdames and t8fish, teeing off around 9:45 using the GK Coupon that is available now. $39 Includes green fees, range balls, cart, and $15 food and beverage in the clubhouse. I think that is a great deal The food was good ( I had a great burger and a salad instead of fries) and they have one of my favorite beers on draft: Angel City IPA. As for the golf, there is a lot of good.

I have played this course many times over the course of several decades. it's a lot greener than it used to be. Grass growing where it should be growing. I had only a couple of tight lies and one or two areas off the rough was dry. A couple of areas were overly wet, though.

The tees were mostly level. Some areas were full of divots, but you could easily find a good spot to hit from. Part of the quirkiness of the course is that it's tight off the tee and pin placements can be tough on shots that need room.

The rough varied from deep fescue, kikuyu, or Bermuda grass to well-mowed, or dirt. It was penal enough, but not overly so.

The traps looked good. I was in one and it was good to hit from; even made a sand save par there on 13.

The greens were good for the most part. Smooth and fairly fast, especially downhill. Soft enough to leave plenty of ball marks which we fixed. There were a couple of greens with damage or problem areas: #2 at the front, right had some bare ground and poor repairs; #7 had problems along the back edge, 11 had some stressed turf on the ridge. That's all my memory will let me remember. Other than those areas, the greens were probably as good as I can remember.

All in all, for $39 we got a good value from the GK coupon. However, mdames said he simply walked the course for $15 senior rate, so that's a good deal also.
11/17 using HVs 2 foe 1 anniversary special Friday rate. Easy check in but pretty busy on the course--830 tee time off at 845 with 515 POP--lot of waiting--course offers plenty of opportunity for struggles and apparently every group ahead had their issues as we did on occasion.
Everywhere is green--fairways are lush with good cushion providing decent lies all day--quite a few unfilled divots. Some rough along the fairways but often longer on the slopes and around the greens. The course is laid out with ever present elevation changes--most shots are up or down hill. Tees however were level.
Found 1 bunker behind #9--about an inch of soft sand over moderately firm subsurface.
Greens were mostly smooth rolling medium/medium fast speed which was consistent thru the round. Large green often with multi-levels and considerable slope--#10 has about 5 feet from front to the upper level about 2/3 up the green--balls that do not get to the shelf come back down and off the front. Some of the other greens also have their own devious character but are not so punitive in nature.
Friendly staff-HV has a challenging and scenic layout with really good variety often hitting over or beside wild areas and barrancas ---just wish it would play faster.
Played here for first time on a Thursday morning, 11/16/17.

As with all new courses, I usually play a set of tees up, from where I would normally play. Played Gold at 6204, 69.2 / 125, which turned out to be plenty of challenge for me.

Weather was near perfect, mid 70's and course did not disappoint. Just out of typical October maintenance, carts are now allowed back on fairways.

Overall, exceptional conditions, knowing they will be even better in another few weeks.

Tee boxes level, and clean.

Fairways were just a hair on thin side in spots, but mostly very good, and very green. (The entire course was a stunning bright, green throughout). I can imagine fairways will soften up a bit as they fill in a bit more, and will provide a nicer cushion as winter approaches.

Greens (as judged by a couple of locals who play here often) were slightly slow, but still rolled nicely. A few old ball marks here and there, but again very little to complain about. Lots of undulation in these large greens, with sideboards, false fronts and collection areas to catch stray approach shots.

Bunkers greenside were excellent. Lots of bunkers throughout provides visually demanding tee shots in many case, with options. Decent GPS on board, but I relied on the yardage book I purchased to help with sight lines a to decide which angle I'd like to approach green.

Bunkers in fairway were a bit confusing. A mix of dirt, sand and spotty grass / weed overgrowth. Unsure if they usually in this shape or if there is near future clean up due. Either way, ok top play from if you got in them. Most bunkers are steep faced, but most have flat bottom to play from.

Very interesting Faldo design and layout, which I enjoyed immensely. Very different from most desert / waste area / cactus lined courses I've played in PS or AZ. Back nine plays along the Marriott time share buildings so not as secluded and quiet as the front nine.

Great service inside and out. Huge practice are with grass driving range, grass wedge area, and chipping greens. I could have spent much more time than I had in the practice area.

Enjoyed the first 18 so much, I jumped back out for a replay and got thru 14 holes the second trip, before sunset.

Pretty hefty price tag, but I'm glad I made the trip and played this course. Might be my favorite in the PS area along with Classic Club and Desert Willow.

Played here on Thursday, Nov 16th, first time in a year. Not very busy, teed off 30 minutes ahead of our 9:40 time.

Greens: soft, smooth and medium speed.

Fairways: some brown spot but overall in good condition.

Rough: 1-3" high, not very difficult.

Traps: worst part of the course, very hard packed sand/dirt.

Nice practice green, driving range but was closed for maintenance.

Course is in decent condition. Recommend but get a discount, plenty of 2 for $69 deals out there.
Played 11/15 in POP of 3.5 H. Found the course in great shape this week. No issues with tee boxes; fairways had more grass coverage, so lies (you will find some thin areas) were good and good roll; some of the wire grass/rough had been cut down from previous week, but still hard to play from; bunkers all clean and playable; greens were rolling great and provided good chipping/putting (fast) all round. Customer service excellent at all levels.
Played 11-17. Not quite back yet from maintenance but worthy. Probably one of the best designs within 50 miles. Most of the time this place is in real good condition even around well played areas. They must have a great maintenance team. Like a golf calendar on every hole. Beautiful curse.
Played Black Gold today with a mid morning tee time of 10:30. Pace of play just about 4:15 minutes in a foursome. Course is in great condition. Fairways are green with not much roll due to the wet conditions. It became a minor problem at times on a few holes most notably on the longer par fours and all the par fives. Nothing like hitting a bomb and then watching it plug or stop dead on impact. Rough is fair but I never really cared for the Kikuyu type rough but I understand the use of it. My problem is always been sliding the club under and leaving it short on many different shots.

Greens were fantastic, rolling med to fast with very few if any ball marks left unattended. Learned very quickly to never start a putt inside the hole here, even a few 3 footers went sideways. The bunkers all have good amounts of sand with the green side bunkers being very good to great. A challenging but fair round and will definitely be back again.
I’m not sure what was up with GolfNow when I booked this trip, but sixpez and I also got an incredible deal out here for 10:23 Sunday morning. Saturday’s blue skies had turned to clouds, but otherwise the weather was still very comfortable. Again we played as just a twosome.

Like Oasis the day before but to an even greater extent, Revere Concord looks great from a distance but is a little bit rough around the edges upon closer inspection. The greens were great; medium fast, accepted full shots well and rolled smooth. The fairways were deep green but lacked consistent coverage, so lies weren’t always great. The dormant rough was stringy and tough in some spots and less penal in others. Tee boxes were a little chewed up and it appeared no one had cleaned up broken tees for a while…they were everywhere! Bunkers were okay.

This was my second time playing Concord and I like the course quite a bit. The four par 3s are all really good. The downhill par-4 first is a fun way to start a round, and the long downhill par-5 18th is a blast.

Played here Saturday afternoon with sixpez on his quest to play anything and everything. Turned out to be a pretty fun nine-hole course, albeit overpriced at $25 for 9 holes ($35 for 18, which isn’t bad.)

The course was generally in good condition, except for an odd stretch of a few holes that seemed all dried out. The greens were smooth, medium speed and accepted full shots well. Fairways looked to be partially overseeded and were light green compared to the dormant rough. Mostly good lies in the fairway. Rough was a little more inconsistent. Tee boxes were okay; the 9th was all messed up. I’m not sure the course has any sand bunkers. It looked like the few they once had have transitioned to grass bunkers.

We were fortunate to play here late in the day with beautiful sunlight, which really accentuated the beauty of the last few holes. The par-3 9th is one of the most unusual holes you’ll find anywhere, but really fun with a water hazard fronting the green and reeds that conceal the surface from the tee.

Booked an amazing GN Hot Deal for Saturday, 11/11 about a month prior for my 5th Annual November golf trip to Nevada with sixpez. We had a 9:30 time and were sent to the tee as just a twosome, despite the tee sheet being seemingly full most of the day. We caught the group ahead of us by the third hole but pace was pretty decent, finishing in about 4:00. Ideal weather: mid 70s, sunny skies and little wind.

Course conditions are quite good. Greens were a little slower than expected and difficult to gauge the speed at first, but they were smooth and accepted full shots well. Overseeded deep green fairways contrasted with the semi-dormant rough. The fairway grass was nice but not as lush as it looked from afar... just a little patchy here and there. Rough was pretty fluffy and sometimes easier to hit from than the fairway. Tee boxes were good. I don’t think I was in a bunker.

This is a nice course that, unfortunately for it, comes with a dosage of Wolf Creek Envy. The course offers views of nearby Wolf Creek that make Oasis (Canyons) pale in comparison. It shares some of the same features of its famous neighbor but on a very toned down level, as the course winds its way through reddish sandstone hills. I think I actually enjoyed the course more in hindsight than I did in the moment. There are some really nice par 3s — three of which play severely downhill, which is fun. The downfall of this course is the surrounding community encroaching on it…lots of streets and tract homes diminish the overall aura of the place.

For the amazing deal we got, I highly recommend this course. For rack rate, I think your money is better spent elsewhere in Mesquite.

I was able to arrange a round here on Tuesday after Oakmont, so it worked out perfectly for a mid-afternoon round. It wasn't crowded at all, so I zipped around the course. I ran into one member on the course who told me a few things about the 9-hole (technically 10) layout. The one tricky part is the 6th/15th. Here, they actually have two separate criss-crossing par-3s, one you play for the 6th and the other you play as the 15th. On that same note, don't be fooled by the "practice" green straight ahead of you on the 2nd/11th hole. The actual green for both holes is to the right across a little canyon.

Conditions were decent, but somewhat of a letdown after super plush conditions at Oakmont earlier. Little more dry and thin over here. Tee boxes and fairways mostly a bit dried out, but played fine enough. The rough was thin in some areas and thicker in others, especially around greens. Bunkers were nice. The greens were also in very good shape, rolling smooth at medium speeds.

It's kind of unfair to compare Chevy Chase to Oakmont because I played them back-to-back and they are near one another. Oakmont is obviously a higher-end club. Chevy Chase just redid their entire clubhouse this year, so the facilities have been very much upgraded as they're looking to attract new members. The layout is fun and quite challenging. It's not long, but it is hilly and very narrow in places, with slopes that can sometimes be helpful and sometimes be not-so-helpful. It's one of those old courses where the quirks add some character. I enjoyed the course for what it is and everyone at the club was super nice.
