Joined Johnny and AndrewZ28 during their Gk Cup Match. Big thanks to Andrew who hooked us up with the round thanks to his Linksoul career.

Course was in good shape for such a dry winter and I was not disappointed.

Tee's- Tee boxes were mostly level and had some divot damage which is expected on a short course with lots of play. I never had an issue finding a area to tee it up. I did come across 3-4 boxes that were almost too firm to place a tee in the ground.

Fairways- Fairways had good coverage and where a mix of green and brown. I had good lies all day so no complaints.

Rough- There is very little rough on this course du to the turf reduction done a few years ago during the make over. What rough I did find was a nasty mix of grasses which left you a unpredictable lie.

Greens- The greens are 95 percent recovered from punching and rolled true all day. Most greens were soft which cause some spin issues throughout the day but no complaints from me. We played late in the day so there was a few divots to deal with but not as bad as most short courses.

Sand- I did not find any sand yesterday and Andrew was the only one to play from it. It looked soft but cant give a accurate review.


In all this is a fun executive that definitely requires accurate iron shots all day.

Where to start... WOW! What a course!
My brother and I made the 8 hour trek from Southern CA to take advantage of their early season $99 Unlimited Golf. Unfortunately we booked a little late and had a 1040 TEE time but fortunately we miss timed our drive in from mammoth and arrived at 9am. The head pro Caleb was super friendly and offered to let us go out on the back 9 first as there was a full tee sheet and no way to get out early so off to the range to take a few swings and get used to the elevation.

The driving range here at Grizzly Ranch is one of the most scenic I have ever played and I would put in in the top 2 along with Cascata. Tall pine trees surrounding the range and ample space to warm up. They have a large putting green to practice on as well as a chipping area with sand.

As for the course I would say its bombers paradise and definitely challenges you to think twice once you get to the first green. The rough is very penal and pin placements can be outright diabolical. The Back nine plays a little more open than the front but there are well placed streams, bunkers, and thick rough to separate fairways causing you to want to lay up.
One of the tips I received prior to playing was keep the driver in the bag on 17. It is a longish par 4 that has a creek cutting across the fairway and it take 290 in the air to clear. As most of you know me I'm not scared to lose a ball and neither is my brother I cleared the creek by 2 inches and my brother crushed one 340 yards. The next time around not so much luck haha.

As for the Conditions. Everything is in as good of shape as you would expect just 2 weeks out from the last snow of the season. The Tee boxes were verti-cut but still in great condition to tee up and hit from.

Fairways - almost carpet like a few spots here and there of dormant grass maybe a week or two out from being perfect carpet fairways. Every ball that we hit from the fairway sat up nice and fluffy which greatly helps the iron game.

Rough was very penal and would just grab your clubs I had a triple chip from 15 yards due to the 4 inch rough around the greens I was not happy at myself. Fescue is another type of rough in abundance near the creeks and over the greens. The fescue was maybe 6 inches in length but was laying down so as long as you didn't blast into it you were able to find and hit from it.

There are not a lot of sand traps on the course and that is probably a good thing because that would make the course too difficult. One of our playing partners did say it was in great shape even though is was slightly damp in the morning. There was definitely ample sand and no rocks to be seen.

The greens were a different monster. We were warned that they were very slow due to the late winter that came through in April and the staff was not wrong. The greens would look like they break a ton but as we were warned that the break would be half of what you would expect. Is was very difficult judging speed all day but still amazing rolls. Some greens have some mountain weeds that are trying to take over but they all rolled true as can be.

Overall I highly suggest playing here regardless how far the drive is. From the staff to the conditions this is High quality mountain golf.

Got our to SilverRock yesterday with some friends using the $69 Underpar Deal for ALL-YOU-CAN-GOLF. We had a 9:15 tee time which we got out about 5 mins behind but nothing to worry about. Staff was great from the bag drop/Valet to the pro shop, starter, and Cart girl.

The Course is in Great shape right now as we head into the hot summer months. Yesterday was 94 and light winds until the second round where the winds started to howl. Tee's, Fairways, Rough, Sand all in tip top shape. The only thing that could negatively affect was there was maybe 1 or 2 burned out areas in the fairways but nothing too bad.

Greens were firm and semi quick. One thing to note is the greens are not overly tough but the are very well protected either by multiple sand traps or water and every hole. There are no freebies on this course.

I highly recommend playing silverRock to anyone looking for a good course at good rates even in the winter season.

First time at Goose today. I knew going in that the greens were still going to be bumpy but I did not expect them to be so firm and fast. It was a miracle if you got you ball to check today. Not a whole bunch to add to the previous review except the Tee's were not as hard as Larry encountered 4 days ago.

Course is very fun and the greens are demanding. My irons were off today and will all of the false edges I did not hit very many GIR's luckily my chipping was on point and I scrambled for a good score.

If you have never played goose I highly recommend it. you will not be disappointed. (unless you want to see a goose, we did not)

Not a ton to add from Kevbig's review of our HAIL of a day on the Wolf Course. Thanks to Kevin for getting me the local rate and meeting me out here for some golf.

I knew going in that any wind in Vegas means that its 5-10 mph faster at Paiute which was no exception today, roughly 10-15mph most of the day until the storm cells came over then there were some gusts to 30-40.

Course in good shape and looks to be in very tough tournament condition the fairways were cut super short and were firm and fast leading to many shots to roll into the rough. Rough was cut to 1-3 inches and as Kevin said can mess with you a little. I was in two traps the first one was the size of maybe 4 basketballs. It was horrible and had no sand. The second was a fairway bunker and it was perfect so no complaints other than why have a bunker so small.

Greens were amazing! Very Firm and Fast. I made two ball marks in the 16 holes that I played before all hail broke loose. The only reason I made one ball mark was we played the island green 15th after the first storm cell rolled through and softened it up ever so slightly. I might have wished they stayed firm as my tee shot came up 15 inches short of an ace. Oh well thats golf.

In all this will be a round I will remember for ever as on the 16th hole the entire course turned white with the hail. I even used my chipper to putt a ball on the 16th green that was covered in Hail. Sadly I missed it and the par putt bounced three different ways before dropping in the cup. We left after that because it was 40° and the next storm started dumping and blowing at 40mph.

Made an impromptu trip to Vegas this week to enjoy my last week off. Found a 645 tee time for $83 on TeeOff.com and decided to give this course a try. Pulled up to the parking lot in the dark as sunrise was at 650am and the cart guys put me on a cart and directed me to the clubhouse. The proshop guy was very nice he got me checked in quick and I was on my way to the Concord Course.

I beat the starter to the tee but it was still too dark to tee off. Once the starter arrived he had a major attitude problem he let my group know that there is no way we had a 645 tee time and that the tee times start at 715. After realizing that we did in fact have a 645 start he sent us to the tee. The two some i was paired with were locals and we zipped through 8 holes in 1.25 hours then came a major surprise. The had a shotgun tournament that nobody told us about and put two groups on holes 9-18 we even had a group put on hole 8 behind us as we had already tee'd off. POP was 3.5 Hours for 10 HOLES!!!!! At the turn the started didn't care one bit and brushed us off.

Course Conditions are good-great right now Tee's were level and no big issues other than par 3's that needed to be moved. Fairways super lush but the tee shots mostly gather in the low spots and divots were an issue especially on elevation holes. Hole 18 even had a GUR spot where my tee shot landed 375 yards down hill from the tee. There was almost no grass just divots.

The rough is still dormant and if you dont miss too bad will funnel your ball back into the fairway. There are a few areas that have some splotches of bermuda that has awaken from the winter but still 97 percent dormant.

Sand was the worst I have ever played. there was no sand and a lot of rocks which is very disappointing for a course of this caliber and price point

Greens were the highlight of the round they were Semi firm but held approach shots well and even allowed some spin even when not wanted haha. All putts rolled smooth and quick which made it very important to hit the right tiers on the massive greens on this course.

In all this course reminds me a little of glen ivy and champions club in Corona with the elevation changes and fairways the funnel to one spot on most holes. I will definitely go back even though the starter was a rotten apple and the tournament that was put out in front and behind us.

First time playing here after finding a tee time for $69 on a Sat morning. Unfortunately the winds were up and it was a rainy/ drizzle day. The staff here was fantastic with the starter giving us tips about what to do on the windy holes and where to hit on certain greens.

The course is a fun layout with a bunch of elevated fairways that have rough in the pits below. Course conditions were decent with grass coverage everywhere but just not the all the same when in the rough. I had a few clumpy lies and paid the price when I was off the fairways.

The greens where very firm but slow due to the moisture. All the putts did roll well and very few divots as there had only been 2 groups to go out before us. We never saw the groups and finished in about 2hr 45.

The only thing that I can bash about the course is the sand. Very inconsistent while all were wet a few were very hard and had no sand. I did find two green sides that had puddles even though it hadn't rained in a week.

My favorite holes are 10 and 11 because they play in a little Forrest of desert pine trees and it has a cool aesthetic to it as you are in the middle of the desert.

In all I probably wont be back because of the many other options in the Coachella Valley but its not a bad place if you are looking for a deal.

Had a great round at the beautiful Oak Quarry today. Joining my Brother, Gregholla, and Hilary.

We had a 740 tee time this morning and like normal we went out about 15 mins late. The cart guys even said that every thing was going smooth as two groups no showed but I knew better. The starter never addressed anyone and it seemed like if you wanted to tee off you had to go talk to him and he sent you out regardless of you time. He seemed lost up there.

The course is in great shape right now and was playing real tough. I think the UC Riverside golf team had an event either yesterday or some time recently because the rough was long and the greens firm and fast. I had a heck of a time getting out of the rough even though im a strong guy. The rough just grabs your club and adds strokes quickly.

The Fairways were semi dormant but still greenish from the tee/ distance. They provided nice lies and offered decent roll all day. Greens as mentioned before were firm and fast. Pins were put in some diabolical locations today causing many 3 putts from distance.

The only down side which seems to be a common thing at Oak quarry is the Sand. Honestly this is the worst conditioned course when it comes to the bunkers. Simply said there is not enough sand in any trap anywhere on the course. All were very firm and caused a lot of drama in the GK Cup match between Alex and Greg. The traps were very wet like normal and could desperately need a truck load of new sand on every hole. Ill even volunteer to drive a truck load from the beach next time haha.

Even though the sand is such a bummer they will still get my business because nobody beats the scenic value in the area and for a rack rate of $85 at 740 Sat morning I can forgive them for the poor sand conditions.

Used a Gk coupon today to play CrossCreek. Tee'd off a little early with a two some and finished in 4.5 hours waiting at times as the course was fully booked this morning. The cart girl came around a few times and the meal I got from the GK coupon was a tasty Ham Sandwich with Chips. ($10 value)


This is one of my favorite course due to its seclusion from the outside world. As they advertise No homes, No Roads, No Noise. You can also add No CELL service which make the round that much more enjoyable.

Conditions are decent right now. They definitely water this course a bunch as all of the traps were wet as wells as low lying areas and Tee boxes. You could say borderline muddy. The fairways a mix of dormant and lush grass rarely bare ran for days and you could out run the fairways as I did a couple times. Greens were mostly firm and lightning fast but held flops and pitches nicely. The sand was too firm for my liking but I was only in 1 trap so not much a rating.

Over all I love this course and the coupon makes it a much better deal even though rack rate is only about $60.

HOLY SMOKES what a nice course.

Tee'd off about 15 mins late after a slight frost delay as the second group out. The first group left us in the dust and the group behind never really pushed. POP about 4 hrs 20 mins.

This course is in Spectacular condition right now and everything from the tee's to the greens were Amazing. I have played the celebrity a few times and the flower beds have always been turned up for the season. This time all of the flowers were in full bloom and gave the course that extra scenic value.

They over-seeded everything this year and it shows. Most desert courses at this time have dormant rough but not the celebrity. Everything was supper lush and dark green in color. Add that to the water on the course and mountain backdrops it was amazing.

The only thing about the celebrity course that I dont like is only having 2 par 5's and two par 3's. I am always a fan of either going for the flag and trying to get an ace or pulling the 3wd out and going for par 5's in two. Luckily the par 4's dont seem to blend as all of them are quite unique in their own way.

I highly recommend coming out and playing this course ASAP as its in top notch shape.

2nd round of the day was on the players course at IW. Teed up with Johnny, Sixpez, and my father. The course is completely different that the celebrity. The course is relatively flat and easier to manage in many ways although they do have 4 par 5's and 4 par 3's which I like better than the celebrity.

Conditions were very nice but not at nice as the celebrity course because they did not overseed the rough this year which gave this course that typical brown rough and emerald green fairways.

The fairways, greens, and tee boxes were darn near perfect in my book. Everything was cut the perfect length and made for easy ball striking and putting throughout the day. The only down side to me was the bunkers, they need a little TLC, I was in the bunkers quite a few times and noticed they were getting a little low on sand. The top layer was about 1/2 inch and firm and wet under. There was one bunker on the back nine that the liner was coming up in the middle of the bunker.

Overall an amazing day and I highly recommend getting out to Indian wells soon.

Played on Friday the 19th and one word comes to mind WOW!. I had never heard of this course and would have never played here had it not been for Greenskeeper.org. Situated in Bullhead AZ/ Laughlin NV its not an area I visit very often. Luckily its on about a 1.5 hour drive from Vegas or 4 hours from OC/LA and now that I know about it I will play again.

The course is designed up and down the hills above the mighty Colorado river and offers amazing views of the river and mountain backdrops. This course can eat you alive if the winds are up and your game is off. Although they offer generous fairways and not a ton of forced carries the elevation change make it very intimidating. You might want to bring a rock club with you as the rough is maybe 10 yards wide on the edges of the fairways and then you have the desert.

The conditions for the day were amazing. Dark emerald green fairways with dormant rough that was still very thick and penal. Tee's that were flat and little divot damage, and greens that you could really spin the ball on. The greens were the highlights for me they were fast but manageable. While trying to fix a divot I noticed there are two types of grass one for the winter and one for the summer and the roots were very healthy. You had to give it a little extra muscle to fix a divot.

We saw the cart girl probably 6 times throughout the round and she was very nice. Every staff member treated us like royalty from the moment we arrived to the afternoon meal at Slate. I highly recommend eating there as the food was top notch. I had the Roaster sandwich and it was very tasty.

The new owners are definitely making a difference and this course with soon be the most amazing facility in the tri-state area if it isn't already.
