Played Sunday 8/11, 8:40 tee time; 4 1/2 hr round. Warm calm day. Greens running a fast 10. I feel like it's an interesting course. If you like elevated tee shots, and extreme elevation changes in general, then you will like this course. There are some great views of the valley on the back 9. There are 5 or 6 tee shots at least a 40ft drop, maybe 100 on some of them. Club selection is difficult the first time playing this course due to this. Overall, IMO, it was 18 interesting holes. Some found it gimmicky. I don't mind big elevation drops. Definitely not walkable, as some drives to the tee you need to be a mountain goat to walk them. We went in thinking it was a typical resort course, and I think it's much more than that. Though, it does run through a resort, so you have swimmers, tennis players, dog walkers all over. So if that bothers you, you wouldn't like this course. I would return.

Played Sat 8/10, 8:10 tee time, riding foursome. Have played here twice before, once before the reno, once after, and not since they flipped the 9s. It's a beautiful course, with great challenging holes. I had a really tough time on the greens. They were grainy, and I could not figure out speed all day. I left about 10 5 ft putts short 3 inches that I read perfectly. I hit one 30 ft putt 10 ft.... I was just lost. But the course is great. I didn't bring my A game for sure, but I still had a great time and enjoyed the course, and want redemption. Just to give you an idea of how lost I was: i shot 79 at Pasatiempo the day before, and I shot 97 at Poppy... and I did not lose a ball. Anyways, looking forward to my next round at Poppy.

Played 8/9 Friday, 1:20 tee time. Walked with a caddy as a 4 some. What a great course. For you SoCal'ers, think Pelican Hill, but way better. Put this course on the ocean, and it would be a top 10 course. It's tough. 18 quality holes. Big greens, rolled true. We played the Gold/White combo, for about 6300 yds, and it felt much longer. I hit good drives all day, and I felt like I had 6 or 7 shots that required a 180-200 yd shot. Fortunately, my 200 yd game was strong all day. The par 3s are challenging and beautiful. The caddies were great. I would recommend a caddy or forecaddy if you've never played, because course knowledge will save you a few strokes here. I would've misclubbed all day long without him. This is now one of my favorite courses. It's expensive, and I don't know if I'm going out of my way to pay rack rate plus a caddy... but I do want to play again.

Played Thurs 8/8, 10:30 tee time; 4 1/2 as a foursome. course in good shape. Greens a slow 10. Spongy but rolled true. I enjoyed my round. Interesting course with some quality holes. I played a year ago as a scramble, so it was nice to play my own ball in order. 18 is a tough closing hole. I would play here more often if it were closer to me. BTW, they are heavily advertising an aeration rate, with food... THis is how it should be done. Full transparency, and great deal.

Played 6/30, 9am shotgun, as part of a 4 day golf trip. My personal ranking of the 4 I played: Incline Village Championship Course, Old Greenwood, Edgewood, Gray's Crossing. Though all 4 are really great and fun.

So, this was my least favorite. But it is a beautiful Sierra course, worthy of its peers. I felt the course was the least interesting. Driver, iron. Driver, iron. Most of the holes were straightforward. There was 1 or 2 driveable par 4s. A couple of the par5s were reachable. Some water features and forced carries made some of the holes interesting. I had fun, but I had more fun at the other 3 courses. But don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful course, in great shape.

The weather was sunny, mild wind. Altitude was worth a club. Had a good time overall.

Played 6/29, 9am shotgun, as part of a 4 day golf trip. My personal ranking of the 4 I played: Incline Village Championship Course, Old Greenwood, Edgewood, Gray's Crossing. Though all 4 are really great and fun.

So, yes, this was my favorite of the bunch. I was told going in that since this was the shortest course of the 4, it would be a lot of non drivers off the tee.. but I did not find that to be the case. There were plenty of driver holes, but a lot of variety off the tee as well. Significant elevation changes throughout the course. Every hole was interesting and had different challenges. Many of the holes were framed beautifully. The greens were fast and grainy. Definitely need to read grain, fast downhill, slow uphill putts.

It was a gorgeous, sunny day. No wind. A club worth of altitude.

I want to play here again.

Played 6/28, 8am shotgun, as part of a 4 day golf trip. My personal ranking of the 4 I played: Incline Village Championship Course, Old Greenwood, Edgewood, Gray's Crossing. Though all 4 are really great and fun.

This was definitely the best manicured course of the bunch. Not surprising, as the celebrity tourney is coming in 2 weeks. Grandstands being built all over. On the one hand, it adds to the allure of a high profile course. But on the other hand, they block some great views of the lake, which is what the green fee is paying for.

Today, the sun was in and out. The wind was there all day. Again, I struggled with club selection, with the elevation (less than a club), the wind, and the greens holding very few shots, it made for a tough day. The greenside rough was pretty rough... even with balls that sat up, the rough would grab the club, so you had make solid swings, which is tough on slick greens.

The course is in fantastic shape. Some really interesting holes that make you think. Had a fun time. But put this course anywhere else in the state, you'd have a tough time commanding the $300 rack rate. I would like to play again, but not for $300. Maybe I'll make some connections.

Played 6/27, 1pm shotgun, as part of a 4 day golf trip. My personal ranking of the 4 I played: Incline Village Championship Course, Old Greenwood, Edgewood, Gray's Crossing. Though all 4 are really great and fun.

Today was an overcast windy day, in the 60s, but windchill made it colder. I really enjoyed this course. Interesting holes, with lots of elevation changes. Using every club in your bag.
Need to club down at least one club for elevation. With the 20-30 mph winds, I had a hard time with club selection, and was long on most shots. The wind died down a little on the back, and I eventually figured it out. My mantra all weekend became "trust the altitude".

Greens super grainy, so if you can't read the grain, you will struggle. They were true, ran about 11.5 downgrain, 10 upgrain. The course overall was in great shape. Cart girl came around multiple times. Definitely want to play here again.

Played Sat 6/1, 7am, first off: 3:30 round walking. Missed the GK plays, but was able to get here a few weeks later. I really enjoyed the layout. It has a lot of links style routing. The greens were running fast... and newer greens are near impossible to hold... so you do have to play some rollout. I feel that if you replaced the Oakland Airport with the Pacific Ocean, you'd have a legit $200+ course. That stretch of back 9 that abuts against the airport are some quality holes. There are some elevation changes, quite a few uneven lies... I think it's #12... a beast of a par 4 hole uphill. Easy walk. Will try to play this one again.

Played 6/6... about 3pm, as a single, rode in 2:15. Stayed at the resort, so saved a few bucks on the owner rate. Empty this PM... super windy and a bit cold, though sunny. Interesting course that meanders a mountainside... lots of elevation changes. Greens were super slow. Had a good time, but of the 4 courses I played this week, this would be #4 (Pronghorn Nicklaus/Fazio, and Juniper)

Played 6/4, walked as a single 7:30, not too many people on the course before 8. Really liked this course, and could see this as my home course if I lived here. Great shape. Interesting course that meanders back and forth across a valley...So it goes up and down. Has some great views of the Sisters and Broken Top peaks. Greens stimped about a 10. I played the 6500 yd layout (second from the back)... and if I could do it again, I'd play the Blue/white combo of about 6300... some really really long holes on the 6500 yd layout... 616 par 5, some 200 yd par 3s.... anyways, if you are looking for a reprieve from resort triple digit green fees, Juniper will give you a good time.

Played here 6/3, 7am tee time. 3:15 rd as a 2some. Wonderfully fantastic course, with amazing views, nice holes, great shot quality, big greens... incredibly groomed... I walked, and for the most part it's a walkable course, but there are some green to tee walks that are pretty long, and I was able to hitch a ride with my riding partner. I would recommend a caddy for the first time or 2, as I don't know how you can know where to hit or not to hit on many of the holes... I mean, you know which way to hit, but knowing exactly where the ball will go, or what trouble to avoid, or how much to carry (lots of deception)... saved me about 5-8 strokes. And btw, I got paired with a member that plays over 400 rounds a year, so he was my caddy. Anyways, just about every hole was interesting, and knowing how to play the course added to the enjoyment. Greens were slow due to the dew for the first 9, and picked up speed on the back. I would love another 4-5 cracks at this course.
