Played a couple back on a very cold foggy morning in about four hours only after passing the slowest group in the world. The fog did not actually lift until the fifth or sixth hole. That made for an interesting front nine but surprisingly no worse scoring side than usual. My partners actually played better in the fog?? The tee boxes were all damp and level with good coverage. The fairways were very damp with pretty good coverage - only a few thin spots throughout the entire round. The rough is mostly short and thin but you will find thicker places on some holes. The traps were all well groomed BUT needed a SAND infusion worse than most local courses. Many rocks and extremely thin places in most of the traps even the green side bunkers. The greens were fairly soft and held shots good but many had numerous ball marks in need of repair! The greens are always consistently true and roll quicker here than most local courses. The green fees are reasonable for what is offered. Always recommended.

Finished in under fours hours this morning on a pretty well conditioned course. The staff is top notch. The tee boxes were mostly level but a few were thin and damp. The fairways have very good coverage with a mixture of grasses with kikuyu being the dominant type lately. The rough is almost all kikuyu and you'll find thin dry areas and thick damp places from hole to hole. The traps were a little damp still but were in great shape and well groomed! The greens have filled in very nicely since the maintenance last month. The greens have excellent coverage with very few marks. Most greens were somewhat slower than my previous rounds here but in great shape. The course is very narrow with homes along most fairways with a few water holes mixed. The place is always busy and is fun and challenging as well with very reasonable rates. Always recommended.

Played a quick sub four hour round last weekend on a cool crisp day. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The tee boxes were all in okay shape with a few being somewhat thin. The fairways were damp and thin with coverage lacking here and there throughout the round. The rough was also hit and miss with thin hard areas and thick damp places as well. The traps were very damp and thin but were playable. The greens were definitely the highlight of the round. There were a couple bare spots on a few of the greens which I'm sure should fill in with the rains and conditioning. The greens held shots well and were very smooth with good roll. The dormant bermuda really kills the look and playing conditions at this course - especially with the cooler damp periods during the fall and winter. The regular green fees might be a little much also for what you get.

Played a few weeks back during the week. Thought it would be a little less busy. HA! They were about 45 minutes behind already at 8 am - not a good sign. Any course that routinely books fivesomes is never going to be on time or have any quick rounds midday. The tee boxes were all very level with fairly good coverage. All of the fairways had pretty good coverage with the exception of a couple on the back nine. The rough was not very rough and missing on several holes. The bunkers were in very good condition with semi hard packed sand. The greens were somewhat bumpy but rolled very quick and true. The greens have many hard to see breaks for the first timers here. The course is lined with trees and a few hidden water hazards with a few good doglegs. The overall conditions are good for a course that gets so much play - just would be nice to quicken the pace of play. Recommended at least once if you enjoy six hour rounds of watching other groups play!

Played last Sunday am in right about four hours. They were running behind about fifteen minutes but the great weather made the wait okay. The staff is great from the pro shop to the cart barn (they have nice carts). The tee boxes were mostly level but many were shaggy, thin and almost concrete. The fairways were in pretty good shape with quite a bit of new kikuyu covering a lot of real estate. The kikuyu was very thick and dry in some places but for the most part was playable. The rough where is existed was mostly just longer kikuyu and helped slow off line shots. The traps had enough sand in them but were in desperate need of maintenance around the edges. The greens had been punched earlier in the week and were still not in real good shape. Most greens were covered with wet sand on the front nine and dryer sand on the back nine. They rolled very slow but picked up speed as the weather dried them out. I would estimate about three weeks before they are back to the excellent condition we have found them in before. The rates were discounted about 50% which was a good deal.

Early morning four hour round. This was my first time here and really enjoyed the course and facility. The pro shop is nothing to rave about or the small driving range. The course itself is probably the hilliest I've played since the now closed nearby Champions Retreat. I don't believe there is one flat hole on the entire course. There are many forced carries and numerous blind shot from the tees and fairways. Many of the tee boxes had very recently been plugged and dressed ( it would have been nice to have had the plugs cleared off the boxes) and many were not very level. There were a few tee boxes pretty well beat up but most have been filled with mix at least. The fairways had very good coverage with a few soggy places during the trip around. The kikuyu seems to be the predominate grass found on most of this course. Many shots found the soggy spots and plugged or were covered with mud. The rough was very thick kikuyu in most places and swallowed balls on occasion. The bunker sand was acceptable but many of the traps were either wet or puddled. The few I found required you to move your ball to be able to hit from them. Most traps also needed severe attention around the edges. The green held shot well and were pretty quick on the front with unseen breaks on almost every putt. The greens on the back nine had been watered more and were slower. All of the greens had great coverage but all were extremely bumpy on every putt. The layout and views from this course were great, especially on a clear day. The rates are about right for what you get and Costco makes it a deal compared to others nearby. I definitely recommend a drive up the windy road to play here!

Early 5+ hour round after we were told we had to wait for three groups of their ladies club to play thru the 1st tee. My partner asked the pro shop in person when paying how the course was - WE we NOT told the greens had JUST BEEN vericut that morning either!! This is why I rarely play here anymore!! It's always something that makes me not want to come BACK!!! The course is in pretty good shape. The tee boxes were a little thin and shaggy in places and the tees were set in places with definite slope. The fairways and rough are being overtaken by the kikuyu grass which is good and bad. Good where it is thick enough and bad where it is still thin. The traps are fairly well groomed with dirt and lots of rocks. The greens were ALL bumpy from the vericut and extremely slow compared to what they usually roll. The weather was great - just be nice if the ownership gave a HOOT!!!

Teed off in the morning darkness and finished in 3.5 hours. Staff is great - nice to see familiar faces here. The tee boxes were pretty dry, both thin and shaggy, beat up and somewhat sloped on a few holes. The fairways were hit and miss with good to thin coverage on every hole. The rough also varied from dry and thin to thick and damp. It would be great if the grounds crew could even out the watering on this course - IT would make a tremendous difference in the overall conditions. The traps were fairly well groomed but 99 percent of the material in them is DIRT. Shots from the traps were just about impossible on every hole. The greens were in very nice shape but many were peppered with ball marks. The greens were slightly bumpy but rolled pretty well. I really enjoy the layout and location of this course. I feel that with proper maintenance that the course would attract many more golfers. Recommended for reasonable green fees and generally good pace of play.

Played here for the first time in a very well run tournament. The facility is top notch from the lot to the course. The staff does an excellent job and seems to enjoy doing it. The tee boxes were all very level with a couple being slightly thin and shaggy. The fairways are nearly perfect with total coverage tee to green. The rough was not too long on most holes - but long enough to keep shots in play and short enough to make good contact. The sand traps were well maintained and filled with plenty of quality sand. The greens were pretty large and in great condition with hardly a mark. The greens were holding shots pretty well and not as slow as other area courses I've played this time of year. The grounds crew does a wonderful job with this place. I'm looking forward to my next visit here and definitely recommend a round or two or three here!!

Early am four hour round on Sunday. The staff is great even with the issues they have to deal with from time to time. The tee boxes were great with only a few a little thin. The fairways were a little damp in the low lying areas but the coverage was very good front and back. The short bermuda is forgiving on some shots if you can keep your misses online. Ha! The rough was fairly thick and pretty damp in places but you could advance the ball. The traps were thin, wet and ugly. The traps were well groomed for the most part but not on par with the rest of the course. The greens were in good shape and not real quick today - some were actually pretty slow compared to what I remember. There were a few greens with quite a few marks in need of repair. Some of the greens are also very large compared to most courses. The wildlife and somewhat rural setting of this course are great. Worth the drive and recommended!

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!
