Played here for the first time August 26 on GolfNow special rate. Course was found to be in very good condition. I played from the whites and was happy I did as there are some carries over canyons that would not have made it from the blue tees. Greens ran true, fairways were nice and bunkers were fair. Only quirky thing was after 18 having to walk up the stairs with your clubs through the clubhouse. I have not seen any other course that would encourage that behavior. Hope to play the course again soon.

Played 8/15 early AM tee time before the heat hit mid round. Course was in good shape with the plus side going to the greens, rooling true while the tee boxes were on the negative side, chewed up on most all boxes. I did a good job of avoiding the sidehill lies this time and played better. Pace of play was five hours in our tournament.

Played March 28 twilight, getting out at 3:15 and easily finshing 18 by 7PM. The greens here are really good, well-maintained with few divot marks. The tee boxes and fairways, if you know the course, remain fair with bare patches in spots. Given the conditions of the greens, I will consider playing here more often than I have in recent years.

Played Westridge for the first time today on MLK Day and we go out on time. Went to the range first so you hit off mats under covered two story stations. Pace of play was 5 hours 20 minutes. I played from the blues and felt the greens were nice and receptive. Course was in overall good shape. Saw the marshall once and cart girl never. The course must have reversed the nines on the scorecard since I was looking for a par 5 on the second hole.

Since you play on the side of a hill, you must learn to play uphill and downhill lies in addition to sidehill lies. For the average golfer, that is asking alot.

Carts do not have yardage nor are the sprinklers marked so guessing ensues. Now that I have played the course, I have a better feel for it. Practice your uneven lies before you play here.

Kudos go to the course superintendent for some very fine course conditions found on September 14th. Temps reach 100 by midday but the course held up and the greens were great to putt on. If only people learned to fix divots! The bunkers were in great condition with enough fluffy sand to get the ball out easily. My only negative is pace of play as it took close to 5.5 hours to play. Next time I will walk the course when its cooler and play midweek instead.

Many OC courses where I normally play are in sad shape at the moment. Enjoy this course now, LA County.

I don't see the Lakes course as a 10 in immaculate condition at the moment. I played Lake course 7/25 after driving up from Lake Tahoe and the bent grass greens speed was slow so you tended to come up short on the long putts and power past the hole on the 5 footers. The layout is enjoyable but your iron play needs to be able to handle water on all four par threes.

Best deal when playing Red Hawk if you are from out of town as I was is to stay at the resort instead of finding a hotel in Sparks. The Tahoe suite is over 500 sq. ft. and is a three minute walk to the pro shop and David's Grill. When you stay and play, there is a $15 discount on greenies and the resort room is $129 plus taxes per night. FYI, Johnny's Italian restaurant in NW Reno is top notch Italian food.

Played IV Champ course 7/23 at twilight using GolfNow for max savings. The course is in very good to excellent condition. I get the sense they may have punched the fairway in the past 30 days or so as tee balls tended to find indentations in the fairways making contact for this bogey golfer troublesome at times. Greens were smooth and bunkers had the proper amount of sand. Definitely a must play if you are in Lake Tahoe and are put off by the $240 greenies at Edgewood down in South Lake Tahoe, as I was.

Played here for the first time 7/20 with mid-morning start. Nice driving range and putting green for warmup. The greens on the course were slow until the marine layer burned off. The caused for me all sorts of problems as the greens looked faster than they played for the front nine. Course is wide open for the getting from tee to green. Plays more like a resort course than traditional SoCal muni. Props to the course superintendent for the quality sand in the bunkers. Favorite hole is #13, challenging dogleg right par 4 with trouble right.

Played in a tournament starting 8AM on 7/12. The first 3-4 greens were in average shape at best with divot damage and the greens were slow so speed was hard to judge. The tee boxes and fairways were in OK shape. I loved the bunker sand the three times I was unfortunate with approach shots. Maybe the best bunker sand in public golf in Orange County. I felt the course was gettable tee to green but the greens were not in the best shape. My first time playing CH and I will now know what to expect.

Played Firecliff after playing Mountain View the day prior. From the whites, Firecliff plays longer than MV. The same playing conditions apply as the course is in great shape. The greens again are not receptive unless you spin the ball. Putting speed is slower that you think. All in all, a great place to play in the desert and the marketing and tournament director did a great job with our group. Now that I know the course, I want to play here soon.

Played 5/31 here for the first time. Only complaint for average handicappers is the greens are not receptive unless you can spin shots. Given that, I would have expected faster speed on putts but they were average. Cart girl was around every 30 minutes and tournament director did a fine job with our group. Desert Willow is among the best for how they treat the guests. Definitely would play here again.

Played 4/19 with tournament. Pace of play is slow here due to tough rough and lack of sand in bunkers. As mentioned before, greens were slow on downhill putts. I felt I was guessing wrong on speed all day. The rough is different than any muni I have played in SoCal. Grass was very sticky so you needed a firm left wrist to get the proper strike on the ball. The wind was up on some holes and others were unaffected. I like the course and look to come back soon.
