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!

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.
