Played today in a 3 H POP. Greens are good. Bunkers are still bad. Fairways drying out in some areas, but still (at present decent lies) and good roll. Tee boxes need mowing. No rough to speak of. They have been having large tournaments every Friday during the whole month of May and more to come in June. I personally think, this is taking a huge toll on the golf conditions (too many and too many bad golfers). Customer service excellent all levels. If conditions continue to degrade, I will not be playing here much more during the summer.

Well after Elkins, I realized I was very close to T R and since I had missed the recent GK Guru play and reading the recent reviews, over I went. Check in was easy/fast. Got right out before a 4 some and played the front 9 fast, only seeing a 3 some on # 3 and they let me through on # 4. I think Johns review says all you need to know about the conditions. I, like John said, love the par 3's (including # 17). And I had no problem with #13 (LOL). The only issue I had today, was with the marshal. He saw me waiting on # 11 and asked how it was going? I told him that the 3 some in front was slow and their music (yes music) was annoying. And the 4 ladies in front of the 3 some, looked like any one of them might collapse at any moment? All he said was "OK have a good round" (yeah I would if you would do your job). Passed it on to the Pro shop, for what it was worth. Except for the marshal, customer service was excellent. This is a great layout, but you really need to play the right tees for your level of play, to get the maximum enjoyment. Recommended.

Played today ($17 birthday round) in a POP of 2 H. Got out early in the fog, so did not really get to see how nice this course is, until I was through 12 holes (great layout and setting IMO). I really enjoyed the last 3 holes coming in (fun par 3, long par 4 hitting from above the fairway and a nice finishing par 5). Having never played here before, I had this on my list to play. Maintenance was out ahead of me and had the tees (level/clean), fairways (good lies and roll), greens (great putting surface), bunkers (in top shape). The rough was about and inch tall and wet and sticky (why you should be in the fairway). I truly enjoyed this layout, with the variety of holes, elevations and water. If this was closer to my home, it would be a regular on my rotation. I certainly will be going back ASAP. Customer service was excellent at all levels. Highly recommended.

Played today, on my way back from CO/UT. I had not played here in over ten years and did not want to wait another 10. Got out early had a nice 4 H POP. This course will test every part of ones game, IMO. I never had a bad tee box all round (and I loved the elevated ones). Fairways were terrific (green/lush) and never had a bad lie and tremendous roll in them. Bunkers were just great to hit out of. Rough was not really a factor, IMO. Greens were fast and you did not want be above the hole. Customer service was excellent at all levels. This is one course, that one should experience for themselves, regardless of how well we can describe it in a review. I really believe, every golfer will see and experience something different for themselves, after playing here. The views, elevation changes, conditions, etc. make this a must play (if you can) IMO. Even if it is in Mesquite.

Played yesterday. Had not been here since 2014 (my how time flies). This course was designed by Arthur Hills and redone by Tom Lehman, over the last two years. They primarily took the 70 bunkers on the original design and reduced them to 35. I also noticed (at least it seemed that way) they removed a lot of rough, to open up the fairways. This is a public course, located inside a development and one needs to deal with some quirks by the members. They have the first tee time @ 9 AM (nothing like losing revenue) and those are taken by the men's club. They do not open the clubhouse until 8:30. But it pays to know the former GM and off I went at 8:30. The first thing I noticed was? Brand new golf carts, but no GPS? Second thing I found. There are virtually no yardage markers (well there are but you have to search for them)? So short of having your own GPS, you better be good with distance. I found the tee boxes to be level and clean. I found the fairways to have "good" coverage but dirt spots throughout and circles were I believe the original yardage makers were. You did get decent lies but not decent roll. Bunkers were in decent shape, given the time of the year, coming out of winter. Rough was almost an inch high and very hard to find a ball, let alone play out of it. Greens were in good shape (very large) though some better than others. A fun front 9 but mostly flat, with large undulating greens. The fun starts on # 10. You drive up about a mile from the clubhouse to reach it (seriously). 10, 11, 12, 13 are now known as "the lost horizon". An aptly named set of holes, like none other I have ever come across. Four virtually different holes (see pics - new ones to come). The final 5 holes are a decent set of holes as well. Overall, I was not very impressed with the customer service I received this time. Should I go back to the area, I would play Lakota Canyon several times, as well as River Valley Ranch, in Carbondale.

Played this afternoon. POP was going to be 3 H but the last 3 holes had howling winds from a storm come up and time to get off the course. To bad, as the 18th hole requires a tee shot over the Crystal River. I did however get to play # 8, a great par 3 that plays over the river (pic to follow). This course has beautiful views of Mt Sopris from almost everywhere. Several holes play along the river and there are numerous streams and water holes. Not to mention the many bunkers (which were very playable). Jay Morrish did the design and it is beautiful. A great mixture of holes to enjoy. The course is in great shape. Tee boxes clean and level. Fairways had great coverage and provided great lies and roll all round. Greens are large/undulating and put very fast (8-9). Totally enjoyed the round, even with the impending storm. Great customer service at all levels and a terrific 19th hole.

Played this AM. Had the course to myself and POP was 2.5 hours. This course is and has been in my top 5 since it opened. Today was a beautiful sunny morning and the course is in great shape. The tee boxes were all clean/level and no issues. The fairways had great coverage for this time of the year and provided great lies and roll out all round. The greens (which are huge and undulating) were just terrific (hard to believe this being so early in the season? This course is a mixture of great holes. Front 9 has 3 par 5's and 3 par 3's and the par 4's are great as well (you can see my pictures from a few years ago, and I will be posting new ones soon). The back 9 has a great par 5 finishing hole, requiring two carries over streams and another one in front of the green. One of the interesting parts about this course, is that all of the greens sit below the level of the cart paths? So if you are a walker (it won't work). But if you love unique and well laid out courses, you will love this one. And also Redlands Mesa in Grand Junction. Great customer service at all levels and love the new clubhouse with the great outdoor deck looking over the Rockies. And the restaurant even serves lobster, which are kept live (of course) in a huge tank, so you can pick the one you want.

Played today in a great pace of 3 H. Having not played here in over 15 years, I was excited to play here again. I was not disappointed. What Jim Engh has created here, is truly a gem. IMO there is not a bad hole on the course. Personally I do not know how he put this course in on this property. The variety of holes are so unique. The par 3 holes are all spectacular (especially # 17 - 197 from atop a bluff - pic coming and yours truly had a hole-in-one but from W @ 155). # 5 is a downhill par 5 from a bluff, dogleg right, with the green sitting on top of a ledge, 20/30 yards above the fairway (only saw a hole like this once. Furry Creek in BC). # 14 you need to hit a drive between two huge boulders and then the green is at a 90 degree angle from the fairway (wow). I could go on and on about this layout, but I wil shortly submit pics (hard to do from the road). This course is also just beginning to round into shape. The tee boxes were all fine. Fairways were spotty, but gave good lies and roll. Rough was at 1" and a beast. Bunkers were again "crispy" and local knowledge to play them would be helpful. Greens were in nice shape for this time of year and provided good speed. Customer service was excellent at all levels. Good carts with GPS (though to many announcements). IMO this is a bucket list type of course, due to the total uniqueness of the layout. And oh, by the way, just up the road in Glenwood Springs is Lakota Canyon (be there tomorrow) and another Engh gem. Highly recommended.

Off on a UT/CO golf trip. First stop was here, to see an old friend (Memorial Day). We had to play in the afternoon, due to my arrival schedule. Got out around 4 and we finished in 3 hours and had the course to ourselves (fasted golf carts I have ever been in). Had not played here in many years and had forgotten how nice the layout through the canyon is. I found the course just coming into it's spring arising? The tee boxes did not have full coverage, but that did not effect anything. Fairways were just filling in nicely (did find some brown areas) but they provided good lies and good roll. Bunkers were "crispy" but I have found that many of the courses here in this area are like that (but they were not soft). Rough was about 1/2 inch and it was tough. Greens, though they did not look "pristene" were suprising fast and quick all round and fun to play. Customer service was excellent at all levels. While this may not be the best time to play here, I would not hesitate to play in June/July/Aug/Sept (if I can stand the heat). Bet Sept/Oct are just great though?

Was at the VA for an appointment and some volunteer work yesterday and had time to check out the 9 hole course across the street in the back of the property. While this place won't knock your socks off, it is a fun little layout and beats waiting around in the hospital. Small Quonset hut serves as the pro shop (my green fee was $5). Nice little putting green next to the picnic area. You hit off of mats (which do hold a tee if you wish) for each hole. The course is very green and the greens are large and in good shape. The course is not flat and does have some uphill/downhill challenge to it, in addition to the trees on the course. From the W the course "stretches" to 918 yards. From the B 1144. All the holes are named after famous Generals/Admirals. There is also, a beautiful Japanese garden right next to the golf course, if not interested in golf? The course is self supporting and welcomes donations of golf equipment for the many veterans who live on the property. Check it out, if you are in the area. Great customer service from the staff.

Eagle Bend Golf Club is a 27-hole championship course located on the north shore of Flathead Lake. South of Kalispell and easy 20 minute drive.

William Hull designed and built the original 18 holes. In 1995 the Nicklaus Design Group integrated the Nicklaus Nine to create the Eagle 9 and the Bear 9 the consecutive 18-hole course. The Osprey 9 completes the three distinct 9’s. The Osprey plays along the Lake.

The Eagle to Bear is a great blend of holes, using the land and elevation changes. They play inland and not on the lake. Great practice facilities to get warmed up. Nice clubhouse with good food. Played all 27 in about 4 hours. Great course, great views and spectacular scenery. Highly recommended.

Meadow Lake Golf Resort is a beautiful 18-hole championship layout. Lot of elevation changes that break up the course. Lots of tree lined fairways to test you. Great views of Glacier National Park. Nice lakes and streams to challenge you. It is one of only four Montana courses to have been awarded Golf Digest's four and a half star rating. Great rates. Nice island green on 16. Good food in the clubhouse. Great customer service. Must play IMO.
