Hadn’t played here in years. What a pleasant surprise, I almost hate to post this review and let the word get out. I’ve always enjoyed Soboba, but the club has made serious improvements in condition and a few tweaks to the layout that have turned a good course into a great one. Nice fairways like green carpet, smooth medium speed greens, bunkers with ample fluffy sand. They’ve redone a few of the holes on the backside for the better (which made my GPS go haywire lol). The recent rains made the thick wet rough a b*** to slash out off. Did not have the opportunity today to try the food service, but all the staff encountered seemed friendly. Bottom line, it’s like a good Palm Springs area course for half the price.

Played here early. Course is in mediocre condition even considering it’s in the middle of sooner. Greens mostly ok, but some are recently aerated and some bumpy. Fairways, never a strength here are thin in spots. Bunkers are terrible, filled with water, stones and mud.

Morning starter is very surly and unpleasant. Glad we played here and the price is ok but it’s better at Nearby Dos Lagos or Glen Ivy with better conditions and customer service.

Despite this course being relatively close to home we have never played here mainly due to folks over the years telling us it wasn’t worth our time. After sneaking in a morning round, I’m annoyed we’ve never tried this track. Lots of positives, nice smooth if smallish greens, fairways in decent shape. Great value at $27 which includes lunch or breakfast for the price.
Old school flat and very walkable course. Tee boxes are probably the worst feature as they are all chewed up and not very level at times. Play was a little slowish due to the 5 some of regulars we were behind, but not too bad. Not the most challenging course, but sometimes you need to play a simp,e straight forward course to tighten up the screws in your game. Not going to be on the regular rotation but we’ll be back.

It’s not like it’s a hidden gem as it’s so often reviewed on Gk, but dang it’s hard to get over how good Goose Creek is. Was a little bit pricey at $92 for a Sat am round on a windy day but course conditioning is as good as it gets for a public course in the IE. Make that anywhere. Nice green fairways, well tended bunkers with soft sand and smooth greens all throughout. I always enjoy the ample fairways and subtle difficulty of this course, especially on and around the greens. Attentive Marshall ensured good pace of play (<4 hrs) and we saw the bev cart several times during our round. Had nice cup of chili after the round. The consistency at which GC delivers a good product every time we play there is something I wish would be replicated at other area courses. Hats off!

Played here recently at a pre conference golf outing. Just a few weeks after hosting the Safeway Open, the course is in superb condition. Fairways, bunkers and greens were immaculate. I guess it’s owned and partially redesigned by Johnn Miller. Off the tee, there’s plenty of room to operate and there’s nothing particularly penal. Obviously an old school design except for the greens which seem to be the extent of the redesign. I guess thats they only way they can defend par from the pros but the greens were ridiculously undulating and tough to read. Gimmicky even. Several times I thought I had stuck an approach close and pulled the putter but walked up and found somehow my ball had rolled a long way off the Green. Still a great course to play, if a bit pricey.

Don’t miss the famous burger dog at the shack which we were told is actually independently owned. Nice restaurant and bar but they’re really not set up to sell you a quick bite before playing or at the turn. The girls at the bar seemed really put out I asked to but a cup of chili and getting it took forever. Said cup was $12.95 btw.

Had some misgivings booking here due to some negative reviews, but as our "go to" courses did not have any early tee times, booked a 6 am start. First of all, green fee of $36 is a fair price but not a screaming discount. Had not played here in forever, but found the experience flawed, but satisfactory overall. Fairways were green for the most part, almost soggy with water in spots though. Greens were generally slow to average in speed, but rolled smoothly enough and accepted most iron and pitch shots well. All in all, its in a lot better shape than neighboring Indian Hills for a few bucks more. One off putting detail was that the staff neglected to put out the tee markers, so we were pretty much on our own as to where we would peg the ball. Didn't get into any bunkers and was glad of that as they either looked muddy or just full of firm dirt, just like most IE courses in that price range anymore.

Course is short but deceptively hard, with lots of trees lining the fairways. Also, it seems all the fairways are uphill. How is this even possible?

Staff at all levels tends to be friendly and the nice ladies at the grill cook up a good quick breakfast. Wont be a regular, but I'd come back.

Played a Fathers Day round here with the boys. As we are all Dads we got a return certificate to play again. Nice touch.

This is a tough but fair design. Love how it’s remote setting with no homes makes it so peaceful and scenic. Greens were super smooth. Fairways and tee boxes are in good shape. Only demerit is for the dicey sand traps, either nice and fluffy sand, hard dirt or even mud.

Customer service is outstanding. Friendly and informative counter and starter staff. The nice kid in the cart barn took out our Breakfast to catch them up to us on the course. Easily the best part of the experience. We will definitely be back.

Played here on a weekday morning $31 special that includes range balls, breakfast and lunch on a restricted menu. A good deal overall, but it seems the price popped up recently, perhaps due to the recent closings of Calimesa and San Bernardino.

Greens are slowish but roll ok and accept approach shots. I've always enjoyed this design but of late the conditions of the fairway and teeboxes have been really rough. Bunkers are also in poor shape.

One particular gripe I've got to air is about the condition of the rakes in the bunkers, they really need to be replaced. After playing out of the sand on #7, I used the rake to clean up and got stuck with numerous painful little plastic splinters on the handle because it was in such bad shape. Took a couple of days to get them all out. C'mon Shandin Hills.

Staff we encountered were mostly friendly and it does look like they're trying to do some maintenance on the back side. Let's hope for some improvement here.

I’ve come to the conclusion that Sin City has the best reasonable golf in the country and this club is a great example. Paid $60 on Golfnow and this track’s layout, conditioning and shot values are the equal of courses in Palm Springs and Arizona costing 2x as much.

Spectacular views are to be had as this winds around the red rock area just outside Las Vegas. While intimidating, tee shots are fair especially if you play the right tees. Fairways are in great shape and bunkers are filled with nice soft sand. Greens are fast and difficult to read but somewhat marred by numerous pitch marks. Still they roll smooth.

I did not have the time to eat at the grill as we were rushing to watch the Super Bowl or encounter much of the staff, but the friendly cart girl had a good selection of snacks and drinks. There will be a return visit.

Played here again for the first time in a while. We usually enjoy this layout and convenient location. Greens are puttable and roll ok despite recent overseeding but slow as usual. YVGC used to have lightning fast greens years ago, but not anymore. One particular green had serious mower damage. Fairways and tee boxes ok, but GUR in places. Bunkers are shameful pits of dirt and mud. Staff is mostly friendly and food is good. At $20 on a Friday afternoon I guess I can't complain too much...Except for this. Nonexistent course supervision and the particular mix of rowdy music playing mooks and snail like old timers that frequent this course make for more unpleasant confrontations and yelling than any comparable course I can think of. Taking a break from this place for a while.

Yikes, I almost hate to review this and let the secret get out but duty calls. As noted in other reviews, ACC has been a private golf course until recently. It looks like declining membership resulted in the course being sold and the new ownership has made is semi private now.

First, the not so good. Club house really looks like it has seen better days but the cart kid told us they were planning on a major renovation. It also felt like there was more than a bit of culture clash going on between the old members and the public golfers. To be fair, we saw a couple of yahoos trying to skip holes and whose attire was marginal if you know what I mean. We had no problems, but we were dressed nicely and observed proper etiquette. Still, feeling like you are being judged is a little uncomfortable.

That being said, the course is terrific. Outside of the Palm Springs area, perhaps the best conditioned track I've played in Southern California in a long time with the possible exception of the Goose. It's an old school, tree lined and flat layout. Very typical of William Bell designs. Deceptively hard, as overhanging tree limbs and awkward angles into the greens if youre not on the correct side of the fairway make this a challenge. Ball doesn't roll much on the lush fairways. Fairways, tee boxes and greens in excellent shape. Nice soft sand in the bunkers.

Excellent pace of play, we got done in just over 3 hours. We paid a midweek price of $45 for seniors. This is a about 50% more than we'd pay for nearby Shandin or Yucaipa but it's in a different league. Had an excellent sandwich and a beer after we played. A great addition to the 909 public golf scene.

Got lured in by the $33 weekday with food and bev deal. While, we much prefer it's sister Resort course, Legend has always been quite the old school challenge with treelined fairways, fast greens and lots par 4's so long that you have to keep checking the card to see if they are par 5's.

It seems course conditions here have deteriorated since our last visit though. Greens were good, quick and tough to read. Recent flooding they are working on have created lots of GUR, running streams bifurcate many of the fairways and you have to ford almost knee deep water several times to get around the course. The bunkers are in terrible shape, just no sand under the ball.

Other than the friendly cart girl, customer service at the pro desk, starters and cart barn was snarky and surly today. Seems like this is the general personality of this course recently. Still, it's one of the few reasonable choices in the PS area until the weather heats up and the prices start to drop.
