Played Thursday, 3/23, with a 9:25a tee time. I won a free 2some in twitter contest Arroyo/Siena sponsored with UNLV Basketball which was good Monday-Thursday. Arroyo is the public side of the Red Rock Country Club, with it's private Mountain course in the same area. Each course has it's own clubhouse and practice area. When you pull into the parking lot, carts are set up at the bag drop and it's a very short walk to the pro shop to check in and a pretty large restaurant attached. There's a very small putting green outside of the pro shop which was the same speed as the course. If you want to hit the driving range, the Arroyo range is on the far side of the private range and you need to drive up the side of it to get there. When you do, you find 6-8 stations in a worn out area next to another private area. Yes, you can tell the difference but it's fine for warming up. We were paired up with a local couple and we finished in about 3:45, excellent pace.

I last played here almost 3 years ago and I remembered I really enjoyed the course. Shocker. Enjoyed it today. While it does route through housing, they are "mostly" out of play. Outside of 8/9, no 2 holes repeat, nice variety of par 3s (including a 200+ yard into the wind).

Conditions were Ok, not bad, not great. Most tee boxes were good, but #7 (the signature par 3) was completely dirt at the blue tees. Fairways were firm with little amount of thin areas. Rough was about 2-3 inches. Greens were weird. Ran at a medium speed, they appeared to have a few different grasses in them. There was a few bumpy putts today. My only complaint are the bunkers. Just like 3 years ago, the liners are exposed in the bunkers, all on the front 9. The sand was ok, but had little pebbles. If you had a putt anywhere near a green side bunker, you had lots of pebbles around you.

Overall, I really really want to like this course. Customer service is great. Drink cart was around 4-5 times. It's just the little things like some of the tee boxes and those bunker liners that bother me. Would I play here again? Yes, if I was paying about $40.

Played on Friday, 3/17, with a 9:10 tee time. If you love college basketball and have never been to Vegas for March Madness,you are missing out. When I worked in the sports books, this weekend was bigger than Super Bowl. The whole town is packed, including the golf courses. AP was packed, but I was able to make a tee time online Sunday night.

Checked in at the starter and paired up with a father/son duo from New Jersey before being sent to the 1st tee, which had 2 groups waiting. Finally teed off around 9:20ish and finished in almost exactly 4 1/2 hours, which was expected. When we paid in the pro shop at 8:20, the group ahead of us had a 8:25 tee time. We waited on almost every hole, but everyone was moving along. I knew it would not be a less than 4 hour round and planned for it. Beautiful Vegas day with temps in the 80s, a slight breeze, and the drink cart around at least 5 times.

Conditions similar to 2 weeks ago. Great fairways, they're starting to grow out the rough, and decent desert sand (both bunkers were kind of heavy). The only change was a slight top dressing of sand on the greens. Only noticeable when you marked your ball and the greens still rolled pretty smooth with a medium fast speed.

I will not complain about paying $43 with the OB card, but I don't know what the "rack" rate was today.

Friday, 3/3, with a 11:26 tee time for the $30 replay rate. Second part of a 36 hole day. Enjoyed a great breakfast in the restaurant between rounds, topped off with an excellent spicy bloody mary. We watched the 1st tee of Palm while we ate and saw nothing but carts continuously stacked up. Checked in, sent to the tee and joined by a local couple with only the wife playing, and finished in just under 4 and 1/2 hours, waiting on the 3 ahead of us most of the day, but nothing horrendous.

Conditions mirrored the Mountain course. Decent tee boxes with minimum divot damage. Fairways were nice and lush. Bunkers were OK, typical of the desert, with some pebbles. Rough was about 1-2 inches and not penal at all. Greens were smooth and fast, probably as fast as I've seen them. Any faster and it would be difficult to putt downhill without it running completely off.

Drink cart was around 3-4 times and the halfway house snack bar was open. Marshall was out and kept it moving on a busy Friday afternoon.

Played on Friday, 3/3, 1st part of a 36 hole day at Angel Park using my free birthday round as a OB Sports card holder. Up and down with service today, bags were picked up as we got out of the car, quick check in, and then off to the cart area. Guy only strapped one bag on, which was weird, luckily I saw it before we took off. Checked in with the starter hoping to get out a bit early and he put us out 1st ahead of a 3some who had the 1st time but hadn't checked in yet. He also handled them when they pulled up to see us teeing off. We pulled away from them quickly, waited for a single who stalked us up 10 and joined up with him and finished in just over 3 hours.

Conditions were pretty good across the board. We found a few shaggy tee boxes but we may have been ahead of maintenance. Fairways were in good shape with no brown areas. Rough was still at a minimum, but a little bit longer than last time. Bunkers were good, fluffy, but seemed to have little pebbles in them. Greens were terrific and terrifying. Firm and fast, anything above the hole had a chance of rolling off.

All together, I can't complain about free, but it's worth the $42 rate for that time.

Played on Friday, 2/3 with a 8:30 tee time for $49. Made the reservation last week through their phone app and found times on Mountain pretty scarce. Super Bowl weekend in Vegas usually means packed courses on Friday and Saturday. Parking lot was packed but no signs of golfers anywhere else. Starter put us out a group early, joined by a local single, and we played in 3 1/2 hours. Great pace by a 4some in front of us and the 2 behind us barely waited.

Even though today was close to 70*, the course was showing signs of the past 2 weeks of freezing temps. Fairways were cut pretty short and there was areas of brown/thin areas on almost every hole. Still very playable though. Rough was almost non-existent, just long enough to define fairway from rough. Bunkers were in good condition, semi-fluffy sand in the 1 I was in. Greens were in great shape. They appeared "splotchy" but rolled true at an almost fast pace.

Another beautiful day at the home course. Wished I would of wore shorts. Course was in pretty condition considering the weather the last couple weeks.

Played on Friday, 1/13 with John_T for $33 with the OB Card. I made a 9:30 tee time but it had been raining since the day before and we found the parking lot empty. Minimum staffing for the day, with no starter and no snack bar. We checked in and was told to head out when we wanted. Grabbed some refreshments from the restaurant and headed to the 1st tee about 30 minutes early. With a constant light rain for the front 9, we had the course to ourselves and finished well under 4 hours, including a few long breaks when the rain picked up.

We found the course in great shape. No cart restrictions and the course drained well with no standing water in the fairways nor on the greens. Tee boxes were a bit chewed up. Fairways had no bare or brown areas and lush grass. The rough has been cut to almost nothing, just enough to define the fairways, which caused some bad runoffs off the sides and back of a few greens. On #16, I hit the edge of the green, bounced left, and rolled down a hill and under a fence, where most times the ball is held up. Greens were awesome. Faster than they appear, almost completely dry even with the rain.

The course drained incredibly and the only sketchy area was the drive from the elevated par 3 tee on #13 down to the green, crossing through an arroyo that had a stream running through it. Spoke with the marshal after 14 and they closed that section of the course since the stream was rising.

Overall, another fine day at Angel Park. I don't get many chances to play in the rain and actually looked forward to it.

Played on Thursday, 12/29, with John_T, his dad, and a buddy. We had a 9:22 tee time and found a 20 minute frost delay when we checked in, but was told they were almost all caught up. After some warming up at the matted range, we headed over to the starter, who sent us off #10 at 9:25, so no real delay.

I haven't been on Mountain since early October and found the course is holding up fine to the winter weather. Last week's rain may have helped too.
Some tee boxes, particularly the par 3s, were a little beat up, but all mostly level and no real problem finding a spot to tee it up.

Fairways had great coverage, except for the 3 with water, the geese/coots have taken a toll on those, causing some thin/brown areas. Back 9 fairways get more sun and had more roll to them.

Rough was just enough to cause a little bit of problems, about 2 inches. We were able to avoid all but 2 bunkers, green side on the #4 Par 3 was very fluffy, and the 50 yard long bunker on #7 (which should really be a waste area), was thin and firm.

Greens were nice. Not real firm, rolled smooth and at a medium-fast speed. They were probably just a bit slower than they are in the summer.

Overall, a great time, minus a run-in I had with a guy in the behind group behind us. We finished in 4:20, with very little waiting. Marshall was out and defused the run-in. We paid $34 with the OB Card membership.

On a side note, we played all 12 holes of the Par 3 Cloud 9 course afterwards and had an awesome time. If you ever make it to AP, hit the short course with a group. It was a blast. Some really chewed up tee boxes, and a handful of greens were beat up from taking wedges all day, but still lots of fun. Longest hole today was about 165 yards, with most running 95-125.

Played on Monday, 11/14, with Itslikeimsayin, using a free 4some he won at a GK event (Thanks Mark, Johnny, and Troon!). Started off weird, as the starter put us with a 2some 1 group ahead of our tee time and sent us to the 1st tee, only to find a single waiting to join up. Single left, we teed, then the single and starter came back to bump us back and put the single with the 2some, as a 3 ahead of a 2. Just weird.

What a huge difference in conditions from when I played in July. After that time, I have avoided playing here. The course has improved immensely. The rough is now dormant Bermuda, but fairways took to the new grass well. There are still lots of rocks in the fairway bunkers, but the green side bunkers have improved. There now filled with heavy brown sand, much better than the hard packed, crispy stuff they had in July. The greens are where there was the most improvement. They were a bit long, but considering they were pretty much dead in July, it was worth the slow speed.

Aliante will never be a destination course, but worth it for the budget minded or local player. There are houses (like many Vegas courses), but they are back a little (but still hittable).

Played the GK Plays on 11/12. Being a local, this has been a bucket list course for me and I jumped at playing it for $95, easily beating local rates. Facilities are what I expected of a TPC course, nice driving range, HUGE practice green, and nice bunker area. Excellent restaurant with a nice patio for after the round. Palm Springs like ice/water machines scattered throughout the course (I've never seen these in Vegas).

Conditions were excellent and showed why this time of the year is the best in Vegas golf. Course re-seeding was great, with no thin areas to be found. I went out to the private TPC Summerlin course last week to watch the PGA Tour and this course was in such better shape (visually).

Layout wise, I found the front 9 so much better than back 9 (with the exception of 10, 12, and 18). That stretch once you go under the bridge (11-17) just felt like a different course, with only the Par 3 #12 over the canyon standing out.

Overall, great course with great people, at a great price.

Played on Friday, 11/11, with 7 other GK'ers through a posted "Meet-Play." We paid $75 through a special offer for OB Sports cardholders. This is my 4th trip out to the middle of nowhere and it has never disappointed.

Conditions were great. Tee boxes level with few divots and large areas to move the boxes around. Fairways were lush, carpet like, with very few divots and no thin areas. Rough was thick and about 2 inches. Bunkers were all filled with heavy beach like sand, including the fairway bunkers. Greens were smooth and fast. They did show some damage in the late afternoon, causing the ball to bounce around.

Facilities are nice. Small pro shop but a recently opened grill area. Incredible driving range and a large putting green with huge undulations. I finally noticed the practice bunker area that's part of the driving range area. Staff was extremely friendly.

They offer free replays, but this time of the year is tough to finish the 2nd round. You need to wait until the 1st wave is off the tee, then fall in behind. We started at 12:30 and told carts are in at 4:30. We played to 10, then hit a wall, so we cut across and played most of the front 9 again, getting in 34 holes.

Played on Friday, 10/21, with John_T. He found a 9:30 tee time for $39 each on their website. Great price! 1st time here in over 4 years. I do not know why, but after today, will definitely be back sooner than later. I had a vague recollection of the last trip here: very windy, bad bunkers, and I only remembered 2 holes.

Course wraps through a gated community where you check in with the guard shack. Staff was friendly and thanked us for playing. Staffed bag drop, easy check in, cart guys waiting at the end. Drink cart was around 2-3 times and a few water buckets out on the course. Nice carts with great GPS, showed lay out, distance to trouble, and yardages to front/middle/back. Pace was exactly 4 1/2 hours, started as a 2some, then joined by a local couple at 10. Playing as a foursome really cut down on the waiting. Carts were allowed only in the rough, but should be opened in a few days.

Course has been out of re-seeding for 2 weeks, and was in EXCELLENT shape. Tee boxes were level and almost completely free of divot damage. Fairways were lush, a bit long still, but carpet-like. Rough was cut down and starting to go dormant. Green side bunkers had fluffy, thick sand. Greens were in great shape. Front 9 were medium/slow, but the back 9 appeared to have been cut shorter and were a bit faster.

Overall, loved it! It does run through a community, but most houses are set back, plus there are some trees lining the fairways. Nice mix of tight and wide fairways. The course is LONG. We played the whites, and found it was all of the nearly 6400 yards on the scorecard. Only 2 Par 4s under 350, but I found I had a shot at 3 of the par 5s in 2 with good shots. Thought it was a little more difficult than the 70.0/122 ratings.

Played on Friday, 9/30, with a mid-morning tee time and joined by John_T. Paid $35 with the OB card and absolutely worth the price. Don't know if they discontinued picking up bags in the parking lot, but the last couple of times, I have carried it up and loaded it on the cart myself (which I'm fine with). Fast check in on another busy Friday, both courses' tee sheets were pretty full. Played in 4:20, with a group 2 ahead over a hole behind. We were a 2 behind a 2, and the 2 behind us turned down our invite to join us. Which is hilarious, since one of the guys works with John.

I grabbed a medium bucket of balls and warmed up at the matted range. Range mat is one continuous mat, like Rio Secco, but with some give to it. Really difficult to tee it up and driver from it though. Separate chipping area and nice putting green with some elevation change.

Course has been re-seeded and off CPO for about a month now. Tee boxes were cut and mostly leveled, Par 3s had some divot damage. Fairways and rough was covered 100% with lush green grass. Rough about 2 inches or so, a little thicker around the green. Fairways nice and lush, with the ball sitting up. Greens were medium speed, a little slower than usual, but putts rolled smooth. #1 green was an exception, as it looked like they still have a trouble spot in the front left that is almost completely dead, and that's where they put the flag.

I love the course and should play it more than I do. We played the blues (5856 yards, Par 70, 67.6/114). It's shorter than the Mountain and a little bit easier, but there are a couple of holes that will bite. 5 Par 3s (2 over water, 2 over canyons), and 3 Par 5s, with at least 2 reachable for a not so long hitter. I always have fun on this course.
