Had the opportunity to play the private Las Vegas Country Club at the January 13th Southern Nevada Golf Association non-tournament event.

The parkland style course reflects old school Vegas, featuring a classic layout with tree-lined fairways, fast greens and fluffy sand, along with a nice practice facility. However, what really distinguished the course were the immaculate conditions and exceptional customer service.

The fairways reminded me of those you see at a PGA tournament, perfectly groomed and lush with few, if any thin spots. The greens were perfect, rolled smoothly and did not have many ball marks.

The par three holes all featured carries over water. With that in mind, a highlight of the day was checking out the small airplane sticking out of the lake on hole number 11. A plaque on the tee box explains how and why the airplane ended up in the lake.

The course is located in an older part of Las Vegas, thus the houses that border the course are small and date back to the 60s. After a few holes, we basically ignored the houses and just focused on the beautiful course grounds and views of the high-rise strip casinos.

As I mentioned, the customer service was outstanding. The staff made me feel as if I was a member of the country club. A highlight was the halfway house, which featured complimentary snacks and a full-service cocktail bar. The folks who worked the facility were very friendly and remembered us (and our drink orders) as we came through the second nine.

Play was a bit slow (4:45) due to the number of people playing in the event. However, I think it would go much faster for a regular round of golf.

I found out that playing privileges are available for tourists who stay at the nearby Westgate Hotel and that for others, a phone call to the club might get you a tee time. For now, I look forward to the chance to play the LVCC at another SNGA outing.

Thursday January 16th… Had a great time at Reflection Bay with JohnnyGK and Rob1563. The course was in excellent shape with smooth fairways, quick greens and beautiful water and mountain views.

The practice area featured only mats and nets for full shots. However, the chipping and pitching area allowed for a good warm up on those all-important short shots.

We teed off on number 10 and took our time…taking pictures and letting a couple of groups play through, yet finished in well under four hours.

While all the holes were fun to play, the par three 8th and par five 9th, which ran along Lake Las Vegas, provided a truly memorable finish to our round.

Service was terrific. The staff was very friendly and helpful handling our clubs. And the free beverage after the round was a great way to end the day.

Played Revere-Lexington in Henderson for my first round of 2020 on Tuesday, January 7th. The course is about 25 minutes from my home (in Summerlin) and about 15 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip. I usually play Siena and Angel Park, which are both close to home (see my previous reviews) and hadn't played Revere for a number of years.

We actually were booked to play Concord, the other course at Revere, but a morning shotgun tournament was running behind and we would have had to wait for groups to come through the first hole. So the starter let us know that Lexington was wide open and that we could tee off there whenever we were ready. So after hitting a few balls on the nice grass range we teed off on #1 at Lexington.

Lexington is the tougher of the two courses but was a lot of fun. Many of the holes feature elevated tees with big drops to the fairways below, which helped add a few extra yards to my usually short drives. There were quite a few forced carries over canyons and arroyos and while a little visually intimidating, most could be be handled with decent drives and approach shots.

The course was in terrific shape. There are multiple tee boxes for each tee position, which are rotated and allows the grass on each to heal. Fairways were lush with very few thin areas. The primary rough grass did provide challenges but offered a better chance to get your ball back into position than the adjacent desert and waste areas. Fairway bunkers had the typical desert-like dirt, while green side bunkers had softer sand. Greens were quick and rolled smoothly. And it seems golfers there (or the maintenance crew) do repair ball marks.

With the tourney on Concord, there weren't many groups on Lexington, which made for a quick round for our high handicapper foursome. We finished in four hours, which included a 15-minute break after nine.

Service was excellent. The staff was very pleasant, including the marshals on the course who kept things moving. We were on pace, so we just got a smile and a wave... We saw the cart attendant twice on each nine and when we were done, the staff out front wiped down our clubs and offered to bring them to the bag drop. The clubhouse looked really nice but I had to head home for dinner and didn't try the restaurant.

I'm looking forward to adding both Revere courses to my golf rotation.

I played Angel Park (Palm) on May 14, 2019, with my regular weekly golf group. I remember we dealt with some pretty strong winds, which affected pace of play (about 5 1/2 hours) but made for a fun and weirdly challenging round of golf.

As usual, most of the resort courses I get to play here in Vegas (like Angel Park) pride themselves on providing great customer service. What’s cool it that they realize us locals are just as important as the visitors, and really go out of their way to make sure we have a good time too.

The Angel Park courses seem to get a lot more play than other courses on the west side of Vegas. However, course conditions are generally very good, as they were when we played in May. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were all noticeably in good shape while the rough is made up of that desert sand and brush that has a way of swallowing up my golf balls–especially true with the wind blowing.

The course layout features a number of forced carries over desert and canyons, but usually offers a lay up or bail out option for us less skilled players. However, I’m sure long hitters will find those carries quite a good challenge from the back tees.

While it was a bit slow that day, none of us seemed to mind. An added bonus is that the views of the Red Rock mountains are terrific. I’m looking forward to getting out to Angel Park again soon.

I've been sidelined with tendinitis the past couple of months, but wanted to post some reviews of courses I played back in the spring. (I kept my scorecards, which helped refresh my memory.)

Siena Golf Club is about 5 minutes from my home here in Summerlin. (About 20 minutes west of the Strip.) I paid the locals cardholder greens fee of $39. While the course often takes a back seat to Arroyo its sister course and cousin Red Rock Country Club, Siena always provides me with a fun and fairly challenging experience.

When I last played the course in May 2019, conditions were excellent. Tee boxes and fairways were quite lush and the greens, while on the slower side, were green and smooth. The rough is basically hard-sand desert with annoying bushes, so like always, it's best to keep it in the fairway. The bunkers at many of the courses here in Vegas feature packed, desert like sand, and that is true for Siena. I remember that I was able to escape the one bunker I was in, by using a close to the ball chip-like swing. Whatever works....

As a high handicapper, I appreciated the benefits of using the white tees, while a couple of my longer hitting friends found a decent challenge from the blues. Often we had the same yardage into the greens, albeit with their use of an 8-iron compared to my hybrid.

Service is always very good at Siena, as it was that day. Everyone on the staff was friendly and helpful, and we were able to buy beverages from our cart attendant on both the front and back nine.

Again, while not providing the glamour of some of the other Vegas courses, Siena offers a fun, somewhat challenging and, depending on the kind a deal you can get on green fees, affordable option when coming to Vegas.

Played on a beautiful Sunday afternoon with the NorCal Golf Club Meetup Group. Starter was very friendly and accommodating getting our 12 golfers out for our tee off times. Course was in great condition considering the drought conditions here in No. Calif. Tee boxes a bit thin but level, fairways in good shape and green side sand was new and fluffy. Greens quick but fair with most putts breaking towards the bay. And speaking of the bay, outstanding views of the water and downtown S.F. from almost every hole. $39 prime-time rate with lunch included was a great deal. Pace of play was good - about 4:30 - with a bit of a wait on the long par 3 17th. (However, as I was walking, I appreciated the rest!) If you happen to be in the Bay Area, this course is a lot of fun and a great value.
