Played the Blues (6642/70.8/112) in less than 3H as a single in overcast conditions.

Previous reviews prepared me for the lack of trees, the all grass or dirt sand traps and the flat lay of the land. You start out with two straight par 5's and later have two straight par 3's on the front. You have played three par 5's before your second par 4 which is very unique. Like the five par 5, five par 3 setup. The par 5's are scoreable, the par 4's are average while the par 3's overall are challenging. (210/231/168/161/181 from the Blues).

The layout is decent with numerous dog legs and large greens. However, the playing conditions are below average.

The tees were mostly level and decent. Mixture of grasses, winter thin but few unfixed divots.

The fairways were a mixture of grasses and had good coverage, winter thin.

The primary rough was winter thin, mowed down and not much of a factor. The secondary rough had been recently plowed under and the surroundings of hole after hole looked like a farm about to be planted?

All the traps are grass bunkers. Looks like they were converted sand traps? They are large and some of the thickest grass on the course was in a few of them, while others were hardpan.

The greens did not look good but they putted decently. Medium speed, relatively smooth and they held well struck irons very well. Been a long time since I have backed up so many irons on greens.

The customer service was perfect, quick efficient check-in and they let me out before my scheduled tee time. Pro Shop is a trailer, no Starter, Marshall or Drink cart. The gas powered carts do not have GPS. The course was marked every 50 yards old school. Would only recommend the course currently if you get a deal and are willing to play in thin, spotty conditions.

Played the Blacks (6578/72.4/134) with GK Guru's Ron, John & Bob in 4H, 20M. Overcast on the front, we played much of the back in sprinkles.

The over seeded tees were mostly lush with many near immaculate. Only the par 3's had a decent amount of divot damage.

The over seeded fairways were lush and good to play from.

The dormant primary Bermuda rough had good coverage and was generally mowed down, usually easy to find your ball. The over seeded rough around the greens was very lush. The numerous areas of native rough was unplayable, calf deep where the ball just disappeared, almost a sure lost ball.

The plentiful sand traps were well maintained.

Almost every green is severely raised. They are over seeded but look thin and were visually unappealing. However, they putted MUCH better than they looked. Firm, smooth & medium fast speed. Chipping was a challenge, even nice high lobs would roll out. Many greens had places where there could be almost unplayable pin positions.

This is a challenging layout in good to excellent condition overall. Typical Pete Dye design. There are numerous mounds and bunkers with visually intimidating sight lines on almost every hole. Many holes with forced carries over huge bunkers, waste areas or lakes. Even though the course is basically flat, you almost never have a level lie after your tee shot because of all the mounds/moguls. Overall, I enjoyed the layout and the conditions were very good to excellent. The customer service was top notch from the Pro Shop to the Starter to the cart attendants. Had lunch between rounds, the Turkey Burger (Very good) and the service was excellent. Recommended.

Played the Blacks (6666/72.9/135) with GK Guru's John & Ron in 3H, 50M. The weather was overcast and calm around 70.

Typical Pete Dye design with some raised greens, numerous mounds and massive waste bunkers.

The over seeded tees were a mixed bag. Most were lush and near immaculate. However, a few were in mediocre condition. Only some par 3's had a decent amount of divot damage.

The over seeded fairways were lush, near immaculate and nice to play from.

The over seeded rough around the greens was very lush. The dormant Bermuda primary rough was the weakest part of the course. Good coverage and usually mowed down, you could easily find your ball. The native rough is an almost sure lost ball.

The sand traps were very well maintained. Other than large waste bunkers, most of the sand traps here are relatively small but there are a lot of them.

The small over seeded greens looked thin. However, they putted much better than they looked. Medium fast speed, firm and smooth with few ball marks.

Overall, this is a challenging layout and the conditions were very good except for the rough, which was mediocre. Enjoy holes 13-17, which are about as good a consecutive 5 hole stretch as you will find anywhere. The customer service was excellent from all encountered. Cart gal around numerous times. Recommended.

Played the Blues (6369/70.9/131) with Ron, Matt and Brian in the GK Plays in 4H, 20M. Overcast and calm in the 70's, excellent golf weather. Thanks to John and everyone responsible for a well run event.

Tom Fazio design, I like the course layout, I can see the high slope rating. Concerning course conditions, everything was in the 9-10 out of 10 range across the board.

The tees were lush and very well maintained. Large, level with few divots, mowed down close, near immaculate.

The fairways were lush with few divots. A couple of discolored areas but still excellent overall.

The rough was also very lush. Thick and even though the ball usually sat up, long enough to make longer clubs a chancy play. Get outside the maintained rough and the native rough is lost ball thick.

The sand traps were nicely maintained with good quality sand. I don't see how a public course in a windy area could maintain their traps any better, and there are close to 100 of them total on this course.

The greens were firm, smooth, medium fast and rolled well. Perhaps not as pristine as prior visits, but still excellent overall.

The customer service was excellent. The pro shop staff, Starter, Marshall and Drink cart were all excellent to deal with. Had a salad after the round, efficient, friendly service. The setup of the all grass driving range with the complementary Pro-V range balls is top notch. Most of the range is sand, with numerous grass greens set up as targets in 25-30 yard increments so you could hit almost any club and feel like you were hitting into a green.

Many holes are visually intimidating with 97 well placed traps and a decent amount of water. Four different sets of tees for men, all varied by 400-500 yards. The course was fair, not overly tight and an excellent test of golf. Definitely recommended.

Rode the Blues (6328/69.6/117) in slightly less than 3H, playing through a couple of larger groups. Played as a single twilight in sunny, breezy conditions in the high 70's.

The tees were lush with most divots already properly maintained.

The fairways were mostly lush with few unfixed divots.

The primary rough is mowed down and not very penal. However, if you miss the grass rough the native areas are unlikely you can play your ball even if you find it.

The sand traps had good quality sand but were not well maintained. Too many footprints and unraked areas.

The greens were smooth/firm and putted medium fast. No huge slopes or tiers on these greens, but there is rarely a straight putt anywhere.

This is about as good as I have ever seen Cimarron. Carts have GPS to the front/middle & back of the green along with hole tips. No Starter, Marshall or Drink cart most days. Restaurant onsite was open for breakfast/lunch. Fun course in good shape. Recommended.

Played the Blues (6328/69.6/117) in 3H as a single in fairly calm conditions around 80.

The tees were lush, most divots had been properly maintained.

The fairways were lush with few unfixed divots.

The primary rough was mowed down and is mostly good to play out of, not overly penal. If you missed the grass rough, next stop is the native areas where it is unlikely you can play your ball even if you find it.

The sand traps had good quality sand but were not well maintained. Decent sand but too many unraked areas.

The greens putted medium fast and were smooth/firm. No huge slopes or tiers on these greens, easier than average to navigate overall.

No frills course, no Starter, Marshall or Drink cart today. GPS to the front/middle & back of the green along with hole tips. Plentiful ice water stations available every few holes along with cups and a stocked ice chest. Fun course in good shape. Recommended.

Played the Blues (5827/67.3/120) 3H, 45M with Don/Bill, 2 snowbirds from Minneapolis. The weather was overcast, calm & around 65.

The tees were mostly well maintained, lush with few unrepaired divots.

The fairways are mowed close & play firm with a decent amount of roll. Few unrepaired divots, they play well but are thin in a few spots even with the over seeding.

The rough was lush and mowed down close, good to play out of.

The traps were decent with good quality sand.

The smallish, firm greens putted medium fast and were mostly smooth. Most slope gently from back to front, not alot of break on these greens. Numerous greens were thin around the edges.

Few lost ball areas within the course boundaries and most tees being close to the last green all contribute to a good POP here. Many holes on this layout are fairly tight with OB on both sides. Shorter course, but you need to manage it and avoid penalty strokes. Excellent choice for seniors and golfers that would like to play a shorter course that doesn't have forced carries or penal rough.

The customer service was excellent as always here. Drink cart out making the rounds. Not a great or overly demanding layout, but there are some fun holes here. Not a destination course, but I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone desiring a quick round on an easier course in good condition.

Played the Blues (70.6/129/6313) in 4H. The weather was clear, breezy and in the 60's.

SilverRock is away from any houses with a decent amount of lakes, canals and native areas to keep you on your toes. The layout offers many tee shots that are nicely camouflaged with a large amount of both fairway and green side traps. Numerous driving areas appear tight. However, this is not a tight course overall with generous fairway landing areas for the most part once you get around bends and look back at the tee.

The tees were lush and well maintained. Only the par 3's needed divot repair.

Both the fairways and rough were lush, with a few thin spots here and there. Nicely maintained and good to play from.

The sand traps were in excellent condition. Good quality sand that was thick and tough to play from with large lips and long carries if you short sided yourself.

The greens were medium fast, smooth and firm but held shots well. Not a huge amount of contour on these greens, few tiers.

The customer service was outstanding, from the complimentary range balls all the way to the cart guy cleaning your clubs after the round. The playing conditions were very good bordering on excellent across the board. One of my favorite layouts in the Palm Springs area, definitely recommended.

Played the Blues (6522/72.2/134) with Tony & Steve in slightly over 4H. The weather was sunny, breezy and in the 60's.

One of the toughest chipping courses I have ever played because of the firm raised greens. The layout features mounds along the side of fairways, large/deep bunkers, several split fairways and some expansive sand waste bunkers. The course looks nice with the majority over seeded emerald green framed by the not over seeded dormant Bermuda secondary rough. Not in as good condition overall as Stadium, but still quite good.

The tees were lush but had alot of late in the weekend divots.

The fairways were lush and nice to play from.

The primary rough was lush and deep enough to make playing longer clubs unlikely. The secondary rough is currently dormant Bermuda.

The large sand traps are plentiful here. Many have decent size lips and need to be avoided in most cases because of the raised greens. Mostly in good condition, decently maintained.

The greens putted medium fast & were firm and smooth.

The cart gal was out making the rounds numerous times. Excellent customer service from everyone involved with the golf. Great course in very good to excellent condition. Definitely recommended.

Played the Blues (6739/73.1/140) with Sean, Mendel and Lamitchw. POP was 4H, 30M in sunny, calm conditions. This was the best I have ever seen Stadium look as they get it ready to host the upcoming Career Builder PGA event next month.

I get more comfortable with the Pete Dye design with each round. There are moguls and bunkers that make for challenging sight lines, many of which the average golfer needs to steer clear of to avoid big numbers. Bad shots are really penalized here. Even relatively good shots barely offline can quickly result in a double or worse.

The tees were lush and well maintained, only some par 3's needed divot attention.

The fairways were lush with most divots already repaired

The over seeded primary rough was thick and lush. The dormant Bermuda secondary rough had not been over seeded and was more hit and miss.

The plentiful sand traps were well maintained with good quality sand that was thick. There are many large traps on this course, a few with 10' to 15' lips to play over. Avoiding the sand here is a higher priority than 98% of the courses I have played.

The smooth greens putted nice. Medium speed, very consistent and firm.

The customer service was top notch. Cart gal around numerous times. Challenging layout and the conditions were excellent. Recommended.

Played the Blues (70.6/129/6313) in slightly less than 4.5H with mendel, lamitchw & Jo-Anne, fun group to play with! The weather was overcast and in the low 60's with little wind. It played and felt much colder however.

My first time played the newly designed back 9. The redesign is not really as extensive as I was led to believe. You lost hole 18 (par 5) completely. A medium to shorter iron par 3 that has water front, left and long between what was holes 10/11 takes it's place. What was holes 11 & 15 (par 4's) were lengthened and now play as par 5's to keep the overall par @ 72. You play the other 6 holes in a different order than previously, but they are basically the same holes. Overall, the new back plays about 250 yards shorter than it did and I am neutral on whether the changes were positive or negative. Still a fun & pretty layout.

The tees were lush and well maintained. Only the par 3's needed divot repair.

Both the fairways and rough were lush with a few thin spots here and there. Nicely maintained and good to play from.

The sand traps were in excellent condition with a generous amount of thick sand. These traps are tough to play from with large lips and long carries if you short side yourself.

The greens putted medium speed, were firm but held shots well. Reasonably smooth. Decent amount of contour/slope on these large greens.

The customer service was very good, from the complimentary range balls all the way to the cart guy cleaning your clubs after the round. Cart gal around numerous times. We had lunch in their onsite restaurant, service was excellent and the food decent. Great course, definitely recommended.

Played the Blues (5827/67.3/120) in excellent golf weather, clear with little breeze in the high 70's.

Shorter course, few lost ball areas and most tees are very close to the last green all contribute to an expected quick POP @ Woodhaven. Scoreable if you are straight, especially off the tee. Definitely not a grip it/rip it type course, OB on both sides the length of the hole is a common theme on this layout with OB present on all 18 holes.

The tees are lush but had a decent amount of divots, most already filled.

The fairways are lush and mowed close, nice to play from.

The rough was also lush and not overly penal to play out of. They keep it fairly low, so you rarely lose balls on this course unless you go OB.

The traps were decently maintained with good quality sand.

The greens putted medium fast speed. Not as firm as usual, they seem to be watering them heavily, which makes for lots of ball/pitch marks. All slope from back to front and only a few have tiers. Not alot of severe break on these greens, I usually putt well here. The greens are roughly 1/2 the size of the greens on many courses I play, therefore expect many chips shots to tight pin locations.

The customer service was excellent from everyone. Good breakfast burrito from the snack shop. Very present drink cart and there are plenty of water stations. Full length grass driving range. There is no GPS on the carts and the course is not well marked, so bring your range finder/GPS. Recommended.
