Played Friday, 6/14, with John_T. Paid $35 with the OB card. Teed off at 7, was loading the clubs into the trunk before 11, paired with 2 other locals.
Course is in great shape heading into summer. Lush conditions tee to green, but grass is longer than normal, so no roll in the fairways and some nasty rough. Greens are phenomenal after aerating a month ago. Smooth but slower than normal, slowest I've seen them. The bunker replacement have held up, sand was wet but still go early in the morning, started to get a little crusty on top as it heated up.
Mountain is where I gauge my game, if I score well, I know I played well, there's no hiding it a bad part of the game.» Close

Played in the GK Plays event on 6/9 and had a great time. Course is probably the best Links style course I've played, especially for being in the middle of California. I loved the option to keep it on the ground on approaches if the path was clear. Fairways ran firm and fast, but were nice to hit from and did not have any bare spots. Unfortunately if you ran off the fairway you ended in the nastiest fescue I've ever seen on a course, and if you didn't see where the ball went in, you had less than a 50/50 chance of finding. The greens surprised me. While not the best looking, they were pretty true and medium-fast. As everyone has mention, the bunkers were not in great shape and a product of the environment. They're totally exposed to the elements and remind me of desert course bunkers in the dead of summer.
Course was fun to play, with a few short par 4s and some very long ones, and a nice variety of short/long par 3s. I did see a snake behind the 15th green, which if I saw earlier would of cut my lost ball search time to zero. Lots of undulation from tee to green.
Outside services was minimum and the drink cart made her last round while we were on 3, but you can swing past the bar after 9. Hydration was important and there's plenty of water coolers around the course. The restaurant, 3 Finger Jack, had incredible food. I had a sandwich before the round and a great sausage ravioli dinner afterwards.» Close

Played on Saturday, 6/8, as part of Matt's birthday bash. I'll start by saying this now my favorite course. Even if you don't do the whole GR experience and stay in the cabins, the course is phenomenal. Throw in the solitude of the cabin experience, along with fishing the ponds and enjoying the rec center area, and it's incredible.
Course was in great shape. Fairways were lush, green, and carpet like. Rough was up enough to cause problems. Greens were superb. While supposedly running at 11 (not early in the morning), they were very receptive, smooth, and a medium pace. A little bit of course knowledge is needed as there is a few doglegs where you can really cut if you know (or run out of fairway if you didn't know). If you go deep into the shadows in the morning, you do come across some ice conditions. Driving range is huge, but into the rising sun so you may need a spotter. Course has a great variety of holes, and no hole is repeated.
Staff was super friendly, from the pro shop, to the bar, to the cart guys. Carts are some higher end gas models, but no GPS. Course has plenty of yardage markers, including a sprinkler in the trees on the right, 71 yards from the 9th green (yeah I found it). No drink cart but you pass the bar/grill between 9 and 10. Plenty of deer running through the property and they get pretty close. Just an awesome course and worth the trip.» Close

Played on Friday, 6/7, for the start of Matt's birthday bash. Everything is what you would expect for a course charging $230 a round. Tee boxes were better than most courses' fairways. Most fairways were lush and carpet like (except for a handful that had been aeration). Rough was up around 2 inches and not very penal. Greens were smooth and medium-fast.
The employees were great. Awesome bartender, fantastic starter, and the staff at the halfway house was great. Carts are high end with GPS to the hole and multiple USB plugs. There's a phone and full menu on the 9th tee to call in orders to the halfway house on the 10th tee box (pro tip: breakfast burrito is not on the menu but they'll make a very tasty one). Cool trick: the 9th straddles the statelines, so you tee in California and putt out in Nevada.
It's a cool, fun course to play. Not a big fan of trees in the fairways (approach into 11, tee shot on 16), and there's a few around the greens that make you alter your shot. Definitely a splurge course, and not an every trip to Tahoe course.

Played Friday, 5/31 with John_T. Paid $35 with OB Card. Booked the 1st available tee time, 5:45am, and was let off early. We saw a few groups way ahead of us, had a 2some stalking us from 14 on in, and finished just a shade over 3 hours.
Course was in great shape. Lush fairways. Rough has been grown out about 2 inches (thank you for the growth on #9, preventing my ball from rolling in the water). Bunkers were in the best shape I've seen, mostly loose sand even in the early morning. Greens were soft but pretty fast, and ultra smooth. They are aerating the greens on Monday. The only downside was the tee boxes. So many were not level or had lots of divots. On 9th tee box, the right stone was well above the left stone.
Palm is such a fun course. Only 5900 yards from the blues and a par 70, it's par 5s are reachable in 2 with great tee shots and a great group of par 3s (#17 is brutal, 175ish uphill over a canyon). It's a great ego boost if you play well and you walk off disappointed if you don't score.» Close
