Played here 9/30/22.

Always tough to be critical, but at this point in time, I'd avoid due to poor green conditions. I believe, to Oak Creek's credit, they discounted green fees, as they recognize the greens are not up to their standards. Very poor in some areas, and at best, just below average. Despite condition, rolled better than they would appear, in most cases.

Fairways were excellent, very good coverage and good cushion, but still firm enough to get decent roll out.

Did not hit from any bunkers, but appeared to have ample amount of sand.

No issues with tee boxes.

Beverage cart around a couple of times, could have used one more appearance on back nine.

Grille (reason unknown) is still closed, and was also closed when I played here a few months ago.

Vast grass hitting range, excellent chipping / practice are. Friendly customer service.

Played afternoon of 9/29. $41 midday rate comes with cart, so ok price.POP
was about four hours with minimal waiting and a mid round beer run. Been awhile since
my last play. Greens are much better than last several times. By that I mean they have full coverage of grass. Medium speed and quite bumpy. Grass seemed a little long on them, combined with lots of ball marks and spike marks and ball was bouncing all around. Edge of cups were very ragged also. Tees are level cut really short as it looked they had sown rye grass seed on them. The geese were snacking on them so good luck with that. Fairways were very good. Rough was thick in some places, but also a patches of real thick stuff. Bunkers are a total mess. They looked like they were raked but its just a very thin layer of dirt. We saw balls rolling through them? Its almost the same as hard pan. Lakes are a pea soup green color, gross. IF you stay out of the numerous bunkers and take the bumpy greens for what they are its a fun course. Well designed just not great conditions. It is a change from my regular dose of the county courses.

I really miss the Industry Hills of yesteryears where conditions were top notch and best in the SGV. Seems that those days are long gone.

Tee boxes were rough, thin, and barely had good spots to hit from on the par 3s. Bald and thin spots galore on the fairways. Roughs are cut pretty short and inconsistent with lots of bald areas as well. Greens were slow, bumpy, and VERY soft. How soft? 3 of my wedge shots were embedded. Lots of divots even for the 2nd tee time of the day. The bright spot was the bunkers. Plenty of sand and quite consistent throughout. I love the track, just wish that they maintain it better.

Played 9-18-22 afternoon with fellow GKers, riding the course in about 4 1/2 hours. Overall conditions of the the course are pretty good right now. Fairways are a nice Bermuda green with decent roll out and great lies. First cut of rough was in good shape evenly cut at about an inch longer than fairways, and easy to hit from, outside that and you have a 50/50 chance of losing your ball. Tee boxes were mostly level with good coverage. Was not in any bunkers but it looked like most of them had a good layer of new sand. Greens were playing soft, and rolling true at medium/fast pace. Very fun course to play. Highly recommend.

Teed off Wednesday about 7:30 finishing in 3:50. Great pace of play today. Typically when I tee off within 1.5 hours of day break I finish in about 4:15. The greens are in good shape rolling mostly smooth with medium+ speed and holding shots. The fairways have mostly good coverage but there are thin/bare areas scattered about. The rough has good coverage around the greens but there are some thin/bare areas along the fairways. The length of the rough was long enough to affect shots but not too penal. The bunkers had decent sand. The tee boxes have decent coverage in most areas but are mildly unlevel.

Lagos has an enjoyable layout. Holes are flat to rolling terrain with water coming into play on a few holes. There are a few doglegs and decent variety of short and long par 4s. The driving range has good mats and for a couple bucks more per bucket there is a grass section. There are 2 putting greens and a chipping green. The staff was friendly.

I played here today with a 7:53 tee time and got out right on time. That is about the only positive thing I can say about the course.
Thee tee boxes are chopped up and thin. The fairways are more dirt than grass. What grass there is is dry and thin. You had to get very lucky to have a decent lie to hit from. The rough is about the same
The bunkers are mostly hard packed dirt. The greens were not punched last month and I was told there is no plan in place to do them because of the hot weather. They have lots of poorly repaired ball marks and very inconsistent speed.
I will not be returning here any time soon.

I was staying in Reno with a good friend and we decided it was too nice of a day to sit inside. Got a starting time at Sierra Sage for 11:20 AM. The starter got us off early.

The pro shop staff could not have been nicer or more knowledgeable. Gave us an extra token for range balls. And a very detailed course guide book. Came in handy as there were no GPS screens on the carts.

Played with another twosome, a father and son combo... Dad struggled a bit, but a couple of nicer guys you couldn't find!

The course is fairly flat and not a lot of trees. As a matter of fact, I might say it is wide open. There's some trouble here in there but you can generally find the fairway. The rough was not too long nor punishing. The fairways were in excellent shape. People were filling their divots and the turf grass was in great condition.

Compared to the greens I play regularly in Northern California, these were lightning fast. Like crazy fast. Nothing rolled off the green uncontrollably, but you really had to watch a downhill putt.

I only found one sand trap all day, but I got out cleanly because they were in super nice shape. Fluffy sand, not too wet.

I didn't eat anything at the clubhouse bar-and-grill, but my partner said that the hot dog was one of the best. Lots of choices like sauerkraut, jalapeno relish and spicy mustard.

If you are in Reno, try this course. It gets the Cheeseburger seal of approval! $45.00, senior rate, including cart.

Walked the Blues (6083/69.9/119) in roughly 4H twilight. Sunny, fairly calm and around 70 made for a very pleasant afternoon. $30 to walk with the SLO Co. card is a good rate for this course.

Kikuyu tees mostly level and well maintained with decent coverage.

Kikuyu fairways mostly lush and good to play from.

Mostly Kikuyu rough maintained low with mostly good coverage. Beside and behind the greens the rough is lusher/taller. DO NOT short side yourself here! Many hard pan areas farther off the fairways.

Few sand traps on this course, but those observed were well maintained with good quality sand.

Smallish, old school poa greens were mostly firm but held approach shots very well. Putted medium speed and were relatively smooth even late afternoon. Most slope back to front and fall off to at least one side. No tiers on these greens, but down hillers are to be avoided on these greens.

Customer service excellent, friendly Marshall and Starter. Small driving range and a busy restaurant onsite. Never any on course services here. Fun course, Recommended.

Played this course for the fifth time a few days ago, having not played it for several months, and it was in surprisingly good shape. Since it’s fescue grass on the fairways, the course will never be super green and luscious. However, it is currently in really good shape and they have even grown out an improved 2in cut of fescue rough in key areas. One of my few issues with this course in the past was that the ideal lines on some holes involved bringing water and bunkered areas into play, and even if you hit good tee shots it would roll into them if you didn’t get much spin. Now with there being a consistent cut of rough around the course will play more fair and fun. Otherwise, this is a fun, engaging design that tests every part of your game. It is usually windy there after mid morning too providing an added challenge. Greens were in really good shape a few days ago, very green and rolling medium speed with enough firmness that there were hardly any pitch marks or other markings. Bunkers/waste areas are in good shape and won’t totally wreck your clubs like some of my home courses that have large pebbles in the sand. All water areas are completely full. For paying over $100 to walk on a weekend, the course is in shape it should be in but anything less would be frustrating. Grill has solid food and a mean pulled pork! Would highly recommend this course for anyone looking for a slightly different type of golf design than usual California courses.

This has been one of my local courses for a few years now and I made this account only to say GREAT WORK GUYS! I have never played this course in as good of condition as I did today. The team at LP has worked hard to restore most of the bunkers as well as manicure a consistent 2in cut of rough throughout the course. Greens were excellent, not rolling faster than about 10 but very smooth with minimal pitch marks given their firmness. I’ve always respected the design of this course and I’d certainly consider it a championship track that is a fair test of golf, although very difficult, especially with windy conditions year round. The only thing I’d say is that the amount of sand in the new bunkers is extensive and the chances of fried egg are high if the ball carries directly into it. I’m sure that will improve over time as the sand settles in during the winter though. Unfortunately, today was one of the worst scoring rounds I’ve ever had here (from the Black tees) but just have to shrug it off and get back out asap before aerification. Again, great work team just an amazing improvement from what was already a good course!

I played Monday 9/26 at the Air Force Academy Eisenhower Silver course. We chose the Silver course as it has more elevation change than the Blue course. I played with a couple of retired military officers who live in the area and they say the fairways are wider on the blue course but I found the fairways on the Silver course to have plenty of room. I’m not sure if civilians can lay these courses or not without being accompanied by Military. Course layout on the Sliver course was fantastic. Set in the hillside with the huge mountains as a backdrop was just spectacular. Of course it also helped that we hit the absolute perfect sunny and 77 degree temperature with very little to no wind day. Most holes have some sort of elevation change even if its just a slight slope. There are a number of elevated greens making your carry distance crucial. There are also a couple of water hazards on the track. Course design was super fun. It had a great mixture of holes with both slight to severe doglegs in both direction. And even a par 5 with a Z (dogleg in both directions on the same hole). Plenty of grip it and rip it holes (maybe even driveable for long hitters) and strategic layup with a 4 iron off the tee.

Condition wise, the greens had been aerated about 8-10 days earlier so they were rolling slower than normal which helped the downhill putts for sure. Whereas the greens are mainly single tiered, they do have some serious slope to them. Fairways were excellent. I’m not sure if it was because I found the center of the fairway more often on the back nine, but the back nine fairways were fantastic! Tee boxes were level, with most have great coverage but a couple of the par 3 boxes had severe divot damage. I avoided the sand traps all day.

Customer service was excellent and prices were nice. I don’t know what the green fee price was as I did some (ok a lot) of shopping in the pro shop. I do know that the total was very acceptable. Also, I bought a beer and a Gatorade from the on course beverage cart and it was only $7.50 total. Very reasonable.

I can’t recommend this course enough. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
