Played yesterday July 4th as a walk on at 4:00. Played at a leisurely pace amd finished at 7:30. Never saw another golfer until hole 13 abd he was about a hole behind me. Course is in very good condition except the fairways which are spotty at best. Some great lies and some bare lies. After the round i asked about the fairways and was told the bigger siblings get the most water because they are the money makers. Greens and traps are excellent.
I love this course and is one of my faves. Just doesnt get the respect it should. Warning!!!!! Watch where you step, deer crap isnt fun to clean from spikes.

This was my first time playing Los Verdes and enjoyed the challenges and views this course has to offer. We tee'd off right on time and found the pro shop staff very friendly. The starter on the other hand was very rude to my playing partner after he hit his tee shot as he felt the group in front of us was too close. The ball didn't land anywhere close to them, and if the starter on the tee box thought they were too close, he should not have let him hit away.

The course has good and bad points, but mostly good.

Tee boxes - mostly level with good coverage except for a few were a little chewed up, but still very playable.
Fairways - Could use a little work as a few were on the longer side and a few a little thin. A mixture of different grasses growing. Ground under repair was marked very well.
Rough - The worse part of the course, some grass, more weeds and some with dirt and weeds.
Bunkers - wasn't in any, but i didn't hear others complain about them and they looked ok.
Greens - Greens were half punched with the other half to be punched at a later date. Of course the punched half was soft, very bumpy and sanded. The playable side was fast and smooth and this courses main defense. Will take multiple trips to this course to begin to understand the breaks. Downhill putts just don't stop and I could swear that some putts look like they go uphill.

Overall for the price we paid $30 walking, the course was well worth it.

Played on Wednesday the 2nd and the weather was absolutely perfect, no clouds or wind and 68 degrees. The course is in a,lot better shape than last time I played here because of the rains the week before. Greens were in really good shape and ran medium fast. The only disappointment was the fairways had been sanded, so there was no roll. We played lift clean and place because the ball would be covered in sand. Had the wise off your club after each practice swing.
My caddie saved me strokes on the greens, they are very hard to read. Bunkers erected perfect as always. Love the experience of playing here and should expect played at least once. But Spyglass is the far better course. My rating shows a 7 but I would say it's more of a 8-8.5

What can I say about this course that hasn't already been said, the course solidified why Spyglass is my all time favorite. The course is in perfect shape. Even after leaving the ocean view holes the course is just as beautiful in the forest. Many elevation changes that make club selection difficult. My caddie was great in helping choose the correct club. Was in only one bunker and even after heavy overnight rains it was still in excellent shape. As a previous review says, Spyglass is a must play. Did I say the conditions right now are a perfect 10.

Played on Halloween day for my birthday and what an incredible day it was. The entire course is lush and very green from recent rains. The course played soft and not much roll on the fairways. The rough was deep and somewhat damp. The ball would sit down and a few I just never found. The greens were soft but still ran at a medium fast speed. Pace of play was great as I played alone with nobody in front or back of me.
This course does not get the respect of its bigger older brothers on the peninsula, but still is a great fun track.
Customer service was great and the many deer in my gallery stayed quiet as I hit my shots.

Played yesterday during the Ryder Cup (Thank you DVR) on unusually uncrowded day, but it still took 5 hours to get around (still trying to figure out why). One of the nice things about the online tee times on Meadowlarks website is that you can book as a single and they don't take your credit card info to hold the time. Meadowlark is a par 70 course that is 5500+ from the tips. the fun thing about this course is the elevation changes. A few short par fours are very rick/reward holes, I played safe and was rewarded with two birdies. The par 3's on this course are difficult holes, length, water, crowned greens, a little of everything. Conditions were nice, with the sand traps being the best part of the course. tee boxes on some holes could use a makeover and leveling. greens were in decent to good shape, a few ball marks but I have seen a lot worse. fairways were in good shape and the rough was thick with a few thin areas. It's a walkable course, but there are a few hills to climb.
I really enjoyed the round and would come back.

Played on Labor day morning as a walk on. Played with 3 really nice guys that were lots of fun. There is a sign on the door telling golfers that the greens are in bad shape because of drought, heat and reclaimed water. I went out anyways and it is true the greens were in terrible shape, very slow and bumpy.Looks like they could lose them. The rest of the course is in good shape, the fairways gave good lies and the rough could use a little work, but not bad at all. The sand traps were amazing. Sand it very plentiful and soft. Some of the best traps at a muni that I have ever seen. I was one of the first groups off and the traps were well maintained and raked. I'm sure later in the day they were full of foot prints.
Overall it was ok, but I wont be back until they fix the greens. I know I lost a lot of strokes because of the speed and bumpiness. PoP was right at 4 hours

Played Los Amigos on Saturday afternoon and tee'd off about 3:30. We were a twosome behind a 3 , which in turn were behind a 5 for the front nine. We got right out without a reservation.
The course is in overall good shape, The fairways were very nice, without much damage at all. The rough was good, a few bare spots and not overly penal. The bunkers had great sand in them, best I have seen here. The only problem is, it was late in the day and this is a low price muni, so the traps were not cared for all that great all day. Looked like people would rake everything, but their foot prints.
The greens were the biggest problem, they rolled with a good speed, but the ball marks on some of the greens were out of control. No way anybody could fix them all. Since it was late in the day the greens were a little shaggy and with all the ball marks, getting the ball to the hole on a good line was not the easiest thing to do. I think a big problem lies not only with people not fixing their marks, but the greens were very soft, I even left a pitch mark coming out of a green side bunker. If the course would either firm up the greens or roll them, this could help with all the marks.
Pace of play was right at 4 hours. but drinking 20-somes can slow down pace just a bit.
I will continue to come back to this course, as it is always in decent shape, easy to get on, cheap and has a fun layout with a variety of holes.
Note to course: When booking a wedding party near the 18th green, make sure the caterer does not set up their tables too close to the 18th greenside bunker, somebody like myself may pull a shot left and hit the table.

After being sent here from Wolf Creek after they had overnight course damage, I was not expecting much as my hopes were on playing Wolf Creek, and honestly I had forgotten that this course existed.
Myself and a couple from Denver were sent out beginning on hole 10 because the same storm that caused Wolf creek closed, caused a mud slide into the tunnel between holes 5 and 6 and they needed time to dig it out so carts could drive through. in fact when driving through the tunnel there was just enough space for one cart to squeeze through as the tunnel had up to one and a half feet of mud still on the left side of the tunnel. tractors were still working on clearing it.
As for the course it is a tale of two nines, the back being the gentler of the two sides, but still a blast and has some interesting holes. the front nine has canyon carries and some great golf holes, make sure you have a GPS and look at the yardage guide they give you. Course knowledge is a good think to have here. This course has great par 3's with three of them with elevation and canyon carries and one semi over a lake.
Tees - in good shape with some being a bit long, but they were driver holes and didn't effect a tee'd up ball.
Fairways - great shape, ball sat up great and not many bare or thin spots as I can remember.
Rough - only a half inch longer than the fairways and in great shape also.
Bunkers - I had to score the bunker low because of the horrible shape they were in, but this was mother natures fault, as terrible hard rains over night caused the sand to be packed down and a few still had signs of being muddy. not the courses fault.
Greens - Now this is where the course is at it's worse. the greens were firm and SLOW, and I do mean slow. When our group putted you could hear the ball skidding across the green, none of us could ever get the ball to the hole on a put over 10 feet. 3 putts were very common.
For as much rain as this course received, the course drained incredibly well, only signs of water were in the desert areas.
There is water coolers on the course, but we never saw a beverage cart, so there may or may not have been one.
Thanks to Conestoga for getting me out on such short notice. Only $40 for a Sunday round could not be beat. I will definitely play here again.

This is not a normal review as I did not get to play the course. I had a tee time on Sunday July 31 at 6:55 a.m. When I arrived a staff person came out to my car to what I thought was to get my clubs, but all he was able to do was give me some bad news, the course had received a huge storm at 2:30 am which caused mud to close down some cart paths and it also ran onto some of the greens. I do not know the extent of the damage to the greens, but it was enough to close the course and they were hoping that they could open at least 9 holes later that day, but only hoping.
the club house had it share of disappointed golfers, along with myself. They did call and see if any other courses could accommodate any of us. and did get me a tee time at Conestoga. The staff was very kind and could tell they felt bad for us that traveled early in the morning to play here. I will be back to experience this course for the first time.

I am in total agreement with Rob1563's review, the course could have been a lot better. The greens just got worse as the round went on. The traps like he said were very difficult because of the hardness of the sand. I have played here a few times and this is the worst I have seen it. A little disappointed.
The range is grass and was in decent shape and I was given a free bucket of balls. The staff here are very friendly. I was also blown away by the cart girl giving last call at 10:45.
I like this course and play it when I come to Vegas as my in-laws live nearby. I will be back once conditions improve. I'm sure they will get the greens back to where they once were.

I also thank Johnny and Aliante for the certificate I won at a GK event. It is very much appreciated.

Played here for the first time on Friday afternoon (2nd 18 of the day) and absolutely loved every bit of it. From the opening hole you know you are in for a challenging round. The customer service from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave is fantastic. And having ice and water stations every 4 holes was great on a hot day. Saw the cart girl several times, often refilling our cups with ice.
The conditions were incredible.
Tees-lush and perfect. The tee markers often need a close look at because they often are combined with another color (White/yellow or Orange/yellow).
Fairways-again lush and perfect
Rough-Perfect for this course. 1-3 inches and not overly sticky.
Greens-fastest greens of the 3 courses I played this week and putts could get away from you if not paying close attention to your speed and reading the correct breaks. Putts shoul be read from two angles minimum. But please do this in a timely manner. It will save you some strokes.
Bunkers-great fluffy sand with a crusty top. Pay close attention to this, as what you see on top is not what you will always get.
The layout is awesome here, no two holes are alike. Great set of par threes, 3 are long shots, while the shortest par 3 has a lake in play. Number 18 is a tough tough finishing hole. Par is an excellent score. The second shot is so scary, especially if the flag is back right. Can easily become a tin cup hole.
Do yourself the pleasure and play this course.
