Played a mid morning four hour plus round with another single and a couple great locals Roger and Dave. The staff was perfect. The rates were very fair for what was offered! The marshals were bringing water out to the players on the course with the warmer 90 degree weather (not warm for us). The course was in excellent shape from the practice green to the 18th green. The tee boxes were all pretty level with good coverage. The rough was about 3-5" of thick and sometimes damp green grass. The fairways were excellent with not one bare or thin spot to be found. There were a couple places on a few holes that were a little soggy but manageable. The extremely large greens were running 11-12 on most holes with a few slightly slower. The only complaint involved the traps. They were all groomed nicely but the two I found were very damp, thin and muddy. This course introduced my to a mammal I'd never encountered on a course before - the Marmot. These fluffy animals made the day fun. The course also was home to numerous Quail and their babies. I really enjoyed the course and definitely recommend IT when in the Reno area.

Early morning Sunday round in under four hours. The staff was a little edgy with the busy morning but we got out fine. The tee boxes were all in great shape with good coverage. The fairways also had nice coverage with only a few burned out spots here and there. The rough was fairly thick on most holes and made finding balls difficult, especially with the dogwood leaves that litter a few of the holes on the front nine. The first nine holes are exactly the same as before the renovation. The traps were are well maintained and had plenty of damp sand. The greens were much softer that usual and quite a bit slower than what we have found in past rounds. They were very few ball marks and they held shot well also. The back nine is where the course has changed. The first three holes are the same as before then things look a lot different (for the good). The new holes have a great look with more water features and bermuda greens. The new course doesn't seem to play any shorter with the renovation. It's an odd feeling to play a course that has been renovated like Soboba. The back nine was like a new course and has me wanting to return soon. We were paired with Gus who was a fellow GKer, it took us until the back nine before we realized it. The round was very enjoyable and fairly priced for the great conditions. Definitely recommended!

Very enjoyable 4.75 hour am round on a great resort course. The resort is pretty large and was very busy Sunday morning. The staff was great and very helpful. We were informed a few minutes before tee time that a tournament would be starting around 7 a.m. and those golfers would be sent out onto the course. I was not sure if that added to the time we were on the course or not - we did wait on several holes for a few minutes. The tee boxes were all very level and had great coverage. The fairways were very nice also with many tight lies. The rough was not very long but did slow wayward shots and wasn't too difficult to hit from. The bunkers were nicely groomed but many were damp, muddy and in need of SAND! The greens were very smooth but they were also not very fast. Many of the greens had much less break in them than looked. The greens tried to hold good shots and all were almost totally free of ball marks. The course was fairly flat with water in play on many of the holes. The layout and trees made you forget you were in the desert. The summer green fees are a steal and I definitely recommend this place!!

Early am five hour round here on a great course. I've played here several times and think this is probably the best condition it's been in for years. The staff is great and helpful. The practice area and carts are the best around! The tee boxes were all nearly perfect as well as the fairways with not one bad area to be seen!! Perfectly maintained!! The rough was exactly that - Rough!! If you were in the long stuff you weren't going to advance the ball nearly as far as you hoped. The traps were all in perfect shape with a few being a little damp. The traps here are what traps should look like - FULL of sand! The greens had been punched three weeks back according to Robert, who joined us and is a regular here. You could still see where the holes were but they had filled in enough not to be an issue. This was the first time playing here that I was actually able to read the greens correctly. The deals for this course make it very fairly priced. Highly recommended!!

Early morning round in about 4.5 hours on a nearly perfect weather day for golf. The staff is always good. The tee boxes were in good shape with tee placement making for a few unlevel boxes but not bad. The fairways are greening up good with the recent weather and provide good lies with ample coverage. The rough is very thick in places and composed of a mix of extremely long clover and numerous grasses - in other places there are very small and large patches of grasses which really is not a fair test for golfers! The traps were very well groomed but all had pebbles and rocks in them. We found numerous bunkers damp and a few with standing water! I can't understand why courses continue to water the traps?? All traps were in need of clean sand. The greens were in okay condition but not on par with the usually good shape you find them in. The greens appeared to have been cut in the morning but all had light green colored growth that was longer than the dominant green grass and make for a bumpy run on every hole. There is definitely plenty of water being applied to the course - enough on the ninth green to have puddled up around the pin making putting impossible. Play at your own risk!!

Early morning Sunday round in slightly under four hours. The staff is great but greatly over the top on the improved course conditions??? Most of the tee boxes were very thin and very dry but level. The lack of fairways made it difficult on a few holes to know where to land your tee shots and I've played here many times. There is no rough but plenty of thin and/or dirt areas along most holes. The traps have actually improved since my last round and have more sand and were in okay shape. The greens HAD been punched on Monday according to the pro shop and definitely showed it. All of the greens were very dry and still somewhat firm for just having been punched. Every area of this course needs WAY more water! The ownership had made good progress on improving conditions but I can't say that after today's round. The cheap green fees get people out but I cannot say that we will be back anytime soon.

Early Saturday morning round just under four hours. The staff always great. The entire course is in very good shape right now. The tee boxes were all in good shape with great coverage and level. The fairways were very green and had very good coverage with tons of kikuyu grass throughout the round. The rough was not too tall or very thick but stopped offline shots and was easy to hit from. The traps were all in great condition with a few in need of a little sand. The greens were great - they held shot well and rolled like a thick felted pool table! The kikuyu rough around the greens made pitch shots very difficult especially when it was the length of the bermuda grass. The course is in the best shape I've ever seen it in - definitely recommended!!

Early am Saturday round in under four hours here - miracle!!! The staff is great. The tee boxes were all in great shape with good coverage and very level. The fairways were in very good shape much to my surprise. Most had real good coverage and were in pretty good shape. The rough was thicker than usual today which made finding and hitting shots in and from it difficult but doable. The traps were some the best maintained of any course I've played in some time - nice! Some of the traps may have needed a little sand but were very playable and enjoyable! The greens were the usual slippery quick but most a little bumpy - I believe they are scheduled to be plugged this coming week. The greens were receptive to shots and like I said quick! Love the greens here!! The course is actually planting many palm trees throughout the course which is good to see finally. I would wait a couple weeks after maintenance and the course should be in great shape.

Sub four hour round on a beautiful day for golf. The course is still healing from maintenance from tee to green. The staff was a little confused on check in for us - but finally got it right. The tees had been plugged and were thin, dry and slightly beat up. The fairways also have been plugged and were pretty dry and very tight, which provided great roll but made good contact difficult. The rough was pretty long but not real thick if one could locate their shot. The traps were fairly good with okay sand but quite a few rocks and pebbles. The greens were about half way healed from being plugged. Most putts were very slow and somewhat bumpy. The course just looks like it needs more water to progress to better condition. I would give it a couple weeks if they start putting more water everywhere and it should be nice.

Third off in the morning with a finish of a little of four hours. Those who play here know that a quick round is usually not going to be the case. The staff knows of Mr. GK here very well! The tees were all in nice shape with a few being a little sloped and thin. The fairways look very green and are in real good condition but most were very firm with large bounces and roll (not always in the right direction). The grass in the fairways was thick from the recent rains and kept the ball up nicely for approach shots. The rain also has made the rough treacherous to hit from but it will keep most off line shots in play (just very difficult to play from). The green side rough is also extremely thick and swallows up shots that do not find the putting surface. The traps were the low point of the round. All were in need of sand and seriously in need of a good raking. Some of the green side traps were damp mud with standing water. I'm sure that the course will have the traps in much better condition by months end when they host the Temecula Valley Amateur. The greens will be punched in a couple days and the are in need of it. Most of the greens had quite a bit of roll out and were not holding shots great. The rain has also slowed down the greens and many were somewhat bumpy. Those that have played here a few times know the greens are usually very quick and true - I'm sure in a couple weeks that the greens will be in fantastic shape. The GPS on the old rickety carts has helped those who don't use range finders. The front nine is fairly flat while the back nine has elevation changes and more difficult layouts. The surrounding area and views along with the wildlife make this an enjoyable course to play. Highly recommended

Early morning four hour round on a very well conditioned course. The staff and facilities are always top notch. The tee boxes were all in good shape with a couple being slightly sloped and scarred up from the golfers. The fairways have excellent coverage with great lies to hit from every shot. The rough was fairly thick and pretty damp from the overnight showers. You could hit shots from the rough but would be penalized yardage every time. The traps were wet and damp with many having standing water in them. The greens were all in excellent shape and held shots nicely. Most all the greens rolled great with only a couple being slightly bumpy. The views from the course are nice and fact there are no homes along the fairways is nice. Highly recommended!!!!

First time here and the course was pretty much as expected. Late morning 4 1/2 hour round because of a foursome that was pathetically slow (Mr. PGA pro)!! The staff was fairly friendly and somewhat helpful. The tee boxes were in good shape with only the par three boxes being a little beat up. The fairways were green and not cut too tightly - but did have a few drier thin sections on the par 4's and 5's nearer the greens. The rough was 2-3" and very consistent. Shots could be hit from the rough without much trouble. The traps were all well groomed but ALL had poor quality sand, dirt, mud and LOTS of rocks. Luckily there were not many traps on this course. The greens were not the prettiest I've seen but were in excellent shape and very quick. Every green had larger than expected breaks and a few of the pin placements made two putting difficult. Most greens were very large and did not hold shots all that well. The course has a few water holes and many trees on every hole lining the fairways. The course is VERY flat and could easily be walked if one enjoys that. The entire course is a quite aways from the clubhouse and about a five minute cart ride to your first hole. There are homes along several fairways but really don't come into play. The green fees were more than I would expect for the quality of play offered, and I've NEVER been charged TAX on a round of Golf??? I did enjoy the course but would not pay that much again. Recommended if you don't mind paying TAX on top of your green fees.
