Played here on a Thursday morning...for the first time ever. This course has a fun layout. Back to back par 5s then a par 3 make for an interesting way to start the day. Hole 1 is reachable so that always helps, hole 2 is a very long par 5. Then, a few holes later you have almost a 500 yard par 4 (from the tips). Everyone in the pro shop , outside services department and the snack shop are SUPER nice...definitely good on a golf course.

Tees - some were hard to find a flat part to hit from, but all were blessed with good grass coverage. Would give these a 7 out of 10 here.

Fairways - some had some visible signs where it was still recovering from a big flood last year (apparently some of the holes were completely under water), but most were in good enough condition to play from any day of the week. Would give these a 7 out of 10 as well.

Rough - same as the fairways...I guess that's to be expected though. 7 out of 10 rating for me.

Sand - there was a big rain the night before, so most had a lot of standing water our first time around. We just played as GUR and pulled and placed. no rating on these since I didn't actually play out of them.

Greens - few had visible bumps, fungus spots, etc...but it didn't really affect play at all. Ran a little slow though...maybe a 7 on the stimp.

Pace of play - this part was awesome. We were behind a 4 some who told us they were within one shot of the group in front of them....but we could see the next 3 holes and there was no one on them. After the marshal came around and realized what was happening, he stayed with the group in front of us until they caught back up. Then, on 11 they fell behind again...waived us up and told us they were within one shot of the group in front of them again. When we passed them, we didn't catch anyone until hole 15, so I guess we have very different interpretations of "within 1 shot of the group in front". Regardless though - the marshal was awesome here to keep things moving. When we played our second round, there was no one out there and we flew around in just under 3 hours.

Will definitely be back to this course...fun layout, nice people, well worth the trip.

Played here for the first time in a couple years. Haven't been able to get out nearly as much in years past, but the annual trip to mesquite is one that I won't miss. This course has been my long time favorite of all the places I've ever played....but it might actually be dropping down the list after this last time.

Had an 0800 tee time on a Wednesday morning...should be no problem, right? Yea well that's where we were wrong...we got there early, checked in and told the guy we planned to play 36 that day. His response is what shook us..."you'll be right on the line if we can let you out again, our last tee time is at 1pm". We looked at each other in disbelief..."uhhhh what?" We play in 3 hours when it's just the two of us usually, so we have plenty of time to finish, go eat in the restaurant and get out again no problem. Not anymore. Apparently they had the USGA out here earlier this year and they set the pace of play at 5 hours & 10 minutes. And the pro shop is proud of that. People stopping, taking pictures all over the place...I get it. It's a beautiful course, but it's not a 5 hour round course. But....they were right. We were stuck behind a 4 some who wouldn't let us play through despite us asking a couple times, until we finally jumped them at number 10. We finished in 4.75 hours, but took 3 just to get through the front. Once we passed them on 10, we didn't catch another group until number 16 who immediately let us go through. Pace of play here gets a measly 3 out of 10. They need a marshal out here to keep things moving and making sure people are playing from the right tees. Some have some pretty long carries and playing from the wrong tees could make it very difficult to make it over.

The fairways were in great shape...as they almost always are. Would give these a 9 out of 10.

The tee boxes were pretty good...few patchy lies and a few which weren't quite flat. Would give these a 7 out of 10.

The rough was hit or miss...some holes it was lush and punishing, and some it was barely there. Would say this would be more of a 6 out of 10. I'm a fan of consistency on the course so it would have been great to see it thick and dark green throughout the whole course.

The greens were fantastic - as you'd expect. They were fast and rolled true. Would give these a 9 out of 10.

The bunkers are hit and miss...some are coarse white sand which looks and plays beautiful...some are darker with a bunch of rocks in them. Would give these a 6 out of 10.

Played yesterday (saturday) 7/21 for the first time ever here. Gotta say, there are some major positives and some negatives here for me.

Pace of Play - this was the biggest, single most frustrating thing on the course for me the whole time. It seems as though the layout drives a lot of this as the front nine took forever (almost 3.5 hours) and the back nine was WAYYYY faster (2 hours). The nines are dramatically different so the only thing I could chalk it up to was the layout. Having the first 5 holes all be reachable (at least for me) in 1 to 2 shots kills PoP. Even though I didn't go for them being the first time playing there, if I ever go back you can bet I will be going for them all trying to rack up Eagles - and that will kill PoP as I'll have to wait for people to clear the green.

Boxes - pretty nice. Overall I easily found a flat spot to hit from on every hole. No issues with lack of coverage either. Definitely some of the better tee boxes i've seen in SoCal.

Greens - little inconsistent here. First one was fast, second was slow as a slug. Same thing throughout the rest of the round. Also they needed to be rolled. Coverage was nice and greens were receptive to well placed shots.

Fairways - definitely some of the better ones I've played on in socal this year. Where everyone in LA is going brown and looking to make more desert-scape, this place didn't have an issue at all. Loved these fairways.

Bunkers - found a couple, but easily able to get up and down. Sand was soft in greenside bunks and firm in the fairway traps. Definitely playable all around.

Rough - not to thin but not too punishing either. Nice to be able to visually see the difference between the fairway and the rough and be able to play out of it too.

Feeling a little conflicted as I sit here and write this one....for a couple reasons. (1) this is one of my favorite courses, (2) we have not experienced anything like what we got this year and (3) we usually play this every other year but played 2 years in a row because of other local aerification activities on-going.

First let me say that when my cousin and I play by ourselves, we play in about 2.5 hours if we don't have to wait for anyone else (in our group or in front of us). We were first off on 07/02, and told that we'd be able to go right at our tee time so that the maintenance guys could get their work in - no problem with that that mentality. Here is why I'm conflicted:

Playing right along had no issues until hole 11. We pulled up to the green with the sprinklers going right off the green (no problem here), when putting, we looked over and saw that the sprinkler had rotated and was going directly on our cart, soaking all of our stuff. My cousin ran up and hopped in and reversed the cart and a wall of water shot off the front. Next hole (par 3) we teed off and proceeded to drive up - sprinklers were going off ON THE GREEN while we were on it. My cousin asked one of the maintenance guys to turn them off and he barely acknowledged him. Apparently the maintenance guys are supposed to radio ahead so the other team of guys can turn the sprinklers off when golfers are coming, but that didn't happen. Get to the next hole - more sprinklers, and the marshall comes up. My cousin made some comment to him (I wasn't there so I didn't hear it first hand), but by the time I got there I heard the marshall say "probably feels good if its 110 out" - which would be true, but for the fact that it was around 0800 in the morning, and not 110 degrees. Get through with the round and go to inquire about playing again and tell Karl, and it was clear he wasn't listening...just said "yea, yep" when I told him that we skipped a few holes because of the sprinklers. Was a little surprised at that response given that we've always experienced first class service here - and I even mentioned to him that I was bummed I couldn't make the Greenskeeper outing there a few weeks before.

Anyways - about the course - greens were a little shaggy but rolled true. Got WAYYYY faster the 2nd round (after they dried out from the sprinklers). Rough and fairways were nice and clean...no complaints there, or ever at this course. Boxes were a little rough and hard to find flat spots on a couple but certainly doable (probably didn't help that we were playing from the blacks either). Highly recommend this course generally and I'm sure nothing there will change. Look forward to coming back in a few years, but definitely need a year off after this year.

Played here on 6/30 as well...2nd round of 36 at the Oasis facility for the day. Paid 55 for the first and 25 for the 2nd round.

Pace of Play - 7/10. We were told that there was no one out and no groups going until 10:30. We teed off at about 10:15. As I mentioned before, we play sub-3 hour rounds generally, so we ended up catching up to people on hole 5. It was a two-some and it was clear they didn't want us to play through so we hung back but if definitely made the round longer. We actually even stopped and went in a local open house while waiting for a backup to clear on hole 16.

Fairways - 8/10. Little thin in some spots but we've played on worse before so no issues here.

Rough - 7/10 - same as the Palmer. Little thin in some areas and weedy in the desert areas. No issue finding or hitting your ball out of it for the most part though. No complaints here.

Greens - 6/10 - in all fairness - we knew they punched 10 days before and the lady in the pro shop let us go look at the 1st green before deciding we were going to play the second round. You could definitely tell that they were punched recently but they were healing up. The remnants of the aeration were visible and were just big enough to alter putts.

Boxes - 8/10. Good to go here...always could find flat land to hit off of...little thin on a few but nothing to write home about.

Sand - wasn't in any bunks, so wouldn't feel right commenting on this one.

Overall - another staple in the rotation for us that will remain there. We like this one just a little more than we like some of the other local courses (falcon, palmer, palms). Highly recommend this one if you get a chance to play.

Played 6/30 so I know I'm a little behind...but just got home and back to internet service today.

Pace of play - 10/10. Played just as a twosome, and although we didn't have the first tee time we were basically first off. Never caught any one or had anyone get within 4 holes of us from behind. Finished in sub-3 hours.

Sand - 8/10. Was only in one bunker...little thin and was still wet from the morning watering so it was heavy. No complaints given the rest of the round.

Fairways - 8/10. Some patchy spots but I guess that's what I would expect for middle of summer in mesquite. Certainly nothing to knock this course down for.

Greens - 9/10. Definitely a tale of two types here - the front were slow and wet and the back were dried out and fast. Both rolled true and were mowed nicely.

Rough - 7/10. Little thin in more than a few areas. Weedy in some of the desert areas, but it is the middle of summer so not something I'd skip over the course for.

Overall - I would definitely recommend this course. If you go in summer, be prepared and bring water/gatorade cause the water stations are about every 6 holes here. This is one that is a mainstay in our rotation in mesquite and will continue to stay there.

Played yesterday before coverage of the Masters started...

Pace of play was great. We were the 2nd group out and didn't wait until the 14th hole when the group in front of us was driving around in the bushes looking for their balls. Overall the pace was great as we teed off at 0630 and finished at 1010. Greens were in fantastic shape. Dried out a little as the sun came up and got a little faster, but rolled smooth and true. Boxes and fairways were not great. Looked like they were getting ready to punch the fairways, and even had hole 6 punched already (along with all the little turds sitting there in the fairway). Would have been okay if they pulled those off, but it was not as aesthetically pleasing as the hole normally is. Would highly recommend this course as long as you're off early in the morning. Might want to wait a few weeks until the maintenance is complete though.

Played the front 9 twice on Friday after the rains...was sorely disappointed. Boxes were pretty good, but that was about it. Fairways looked like dead weeds with pockets of new weeds growing. Very little green in the fairways. Greens were in good condition with the exception of ball marks. Greens were VERY slow. Rough was okay...again very spotty but better than the fairways. Natural area was nothing but weeds and dead bushes. A few hours of yardwork would go a long way here. After years of being a great course, I definitely won't be back until I see a few more positive reviews here.

Played sunday morning as a 4 some. Got out a few minutes early and there was no one in front of us. We didn't ever catch the group ahead of us nor did anyone hit into us from behind. Great job spreading out the tee times there.

Overall the course is in great shape. Only complaint is that they either (1) overwatered the fairways (entirely possible due to the heat we've had) or (2) we played right after they watered. We didn't see any sprinklers on so I'm going to guess it was the former and not the latter. Complete coverage of fairways and most of the rough (little thinner the farther away you get, but they used mulch/chips). Boxes were pretty level and you could always find a good place to hit from. Greens were in great shape with most ball marks repaired. Quick and true for the most part as they dried out. Sand was soft and easy to hit from.

Overall a great place to play, would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a quick, cheap round.

Played this course in the AM...first group out. Overall impression is that this course is a great little track. Starter gave us some pointers as this was our first time here and they definitely helped..super nice guy named Jim.

Greens - 8/10. Rolled nicely, only reason I won't go higher is a few of them were inconsistent on speed, and a few had some leftover ball marks that any maintenance guy could have walked and fixed. Overall though, they were great.

Boxes - 7/10. In general they were solid. Few were on uneven lies so that's why I knocked it down a couple ticks. Ground was hard on a couple but I don't think thats the courses fault but when it's hard to stick your tee in the ground it becomes the problem.

Fairways - 8/10. Also solid in a general sense. Once I finally got going and found a few fairways, they were soft and green. Only one was a little thin which I don't think was too much of a problem.

Rough - 7/10. Definitely longer than the fairway grass but not too punishing. Rated down a couple spots due to some bare spots that could have been addressed.

Sand - 7/10. I'll rank this based on the 1 bunker that I was in....sand was fluffy...too soft for me but definitely playable nonetheless.

Got out today for the first time in a while...man I missed it. Little rainy/cold at the start but overall couldn't complain about the weather at all.

2 words describe this course - bird turds. Every hole with the exception of maybe 1 or two was covered with those little remnants of the coots and geese that are all over here. With all the rain the last few weeks, it looked as though the maintenance crew will have their hands full in the very near future. Right off hole number 1 was a few large mud piles, and quite a few mud tracks where the water has definitely taken its toll. Overall course was in okay condition given the recent weather, but once the rain lets up they better get it under control quickly.

Boxes - 5/10. Could always find a flat spot to hit from, but they were all VERY shaggy. Some of the par 3s were loaded with divots so a few steps back was required.

Fairways - 5/10. Also VERY shaggy. The above maintenance comment directly applies here.

Rough - 5/10 - same as the fairways. Some holes were difficult to ascertain the difference. Quite a few weeds on the course as well, a half hour of picking weeds would make a huge visual difference.

Sand - n/a. Was lucky enough to stay out of them, so no experience/comment here.

Greens - 8/10. This was the bright spot of the round. Greens were great today. Rolled true and only one hole had bumps that impacted the putting. Little inconsistent speed-wise but nothing to worry about here.

Pace of play - 9/10. Got out at 7:00am on a saturday morning as a 2 some, and finished in under 4 hours. Can't complain at all about this.

Played yesterday (01/13) morning.

Course was cart path only - which I can understand on some of the holes, but some were completely dry and should have been normal operations. Course in general was okay at best - and for that reason I won't go into my normal detail on a review. Boxes were okay, fairways were okay but greens were horrible. Far too soft and everyone who putted left spike marks in/around the hole, as well as quite a few marks. A little unfair to write a review on a course after the amount of rain we've had, so i'll leave it at that.
