10/21 guru outing nice day variable breeze POP 415 with no waiting and no pressure. Traditional parkland setting and even with adjacent homes there was a sense of isolation. Nice varied layout with a good mix of holes with a few blind shots over crests with water lurking. There is a rolling quality with no severe elevation changes but more than 1/2 the time a not so level lie and stance making for additional challenges especially with a downhill lie out of the rough with water covering 1/2 the approach on the left.
Fairways quire good for the most part with nice lies and only a few thin areas and some tight lies fronting many greens. Rough did not seem very long but was still on the sticky side.
Played the white tees and found them to be lush and level with the exception of 1 box where the markers were at the very front giving a slight slope. Bunkers were well groomed and had good quality sand.
Greens rolled well medium fast with sneaky breaks and were receptive to well struck full shots while providing considerable roll out for chips.
Range will mats and and abundance of balls. Large putting green that previewed on course conditions. Small pitching area but with a practice bunker. Comfortable carts with no GPS.
Staff very friendly and welcoming.

Played yesterday with the Guru's and Nick's summary is spot on. I think it's been 3 weeks since overseeding and the course looks and plays very nicely. Still a few roped off areas where they are still working on the overseeding but nothing too bad.

I thought the greens rolled well at a medium type of pace. I've seen them faster which is why I say medium. A few ball marks here and there but nothing too bad. Greens are smaller which is part of the defense of this course.

Fairways are great. Nice coverage and not too many bad or bare areas that I can remember.

I was in a couple of bunkers and thought the sand was really nice and able to make a nice splash to get your ball out.

All in all a nice day with familiar faces and it was great seeing everyone again.

Played El Rio outside of Bull Head Wednesday 10/20 best shape the place has been in last 4 years...grass in fairways and good (bit slow) greens..bunkers more dirt then sand as the course gets plenty of wind and cannot hold sand in bunkers...first time I would say the EL Rio was in better shape then Los Logos half mile away.....Drive out and play Laughlin casinos need your business....5 courses within 30 minutes of Casino Row....

Rode the Blues (6722/72.5/130) with John, Mike and Ron in 4H, 45M twilight. Breezy, clear and in the 70's. Very fun group to play with, enjoyed seeing all those guys again and catching up. Thanks to BH for having the Guru's out and to John for coordinating!

First time here. Overall, probably the best Ted Robinson design I have played. Not overdone with water features, up/down rolling hills with 18 fun holes. Plenty of variety, plus on the layout. And the conditions were excellent overall.

Tees mostly good. A few were thin and needed some attention for divots.

Fairways had good coverage and were nice to play from.

Rough had good coverage and was thick enough to be penal even though not that tall.

Traps had good sand and were well groomed.

Smallish greens were a real treat to putt on. Firm, medium fast and smooth, they rolled really well. Some of the best greens I have putted on in recent memory.

Carts were nice but did not have GPS. No cart gal but there was a busy snack stand on the turn. Nice driving range on mats with complementary range balls. 2 putting greens that were both as nice as the on course greens. Fun course to play in very nice condition, I would definitely come back. Recommended.

Rode the Blues (6865/73.1/132) with John and Rex, who played the Golds. 3H, 20M POP, these retired veterans were both fun to play with and quick! Started brisk since we teed off before 7A, but was nice when finishing 18 just after 10A. Fairly calm and clear.

Kikuyu tees were improved from my last visit. Decent coverage and most divots were filled in.

Fairways had good coverage and were decent to good.

Rough had good coverage and could be penal because it's mostly Kikuyu.

Sand traps were well maintained with a decent amount of sand.

Greens were punched a little more than a week ago, so I did not expect them to be good. They must have used small tines, because they were 95% healed and IMO, very good. Medium fast and pretty smooth. They accepted irons and pitches with little run out. I actually thought they were better than when I played here a month ago.

Customer service was excellent from everyone encountered. Kudos to Abby, who got me right out so I could make my later tee time elsewhere. No drink cart today. Basic cart with no GPS. Adequate grass driving range with plenty of stalls. Well stocked pro shop. Definitely recommended.

Played today. Course came out of over seed and punching great. Little wet to start but we had good fairway coverage and roll that only got better as the sun came out. Some tee boxes still have some higher grass than normal (have not cut all of them) but no issue teeing it up. Traps were very playable and now they all have rakes. Greens were fast at the start and got faster as we moved along and are in super shape at present. Great customer service at check in as always and with all other personnel. Even had the drink cart out as we made the turn and prices were reasonable. Recommended and well worth the $64 price IMO. One of the nice things on this course is you never have issues with back 9 players when you make the turn.

Played Wed 10/20, 12pm tee time, 3 some. Nice pleasant day... forecast for rain, so dressed accordingly, wished I wore shorts. Wide open (busy wise) course we played in a leisurely 4 1/2 hours). Very interesting fun course. Played the Zin/Merlot routing. Nice mix of elevation changes, challenging tee shots, but not unfair. Hit it halfway straight and you have a chance. Greens running about a 10, mostly true. It's NCGA owned, so it's a bargain for NCGA members. They offer a walking rate, and I decided to walk. It's not really a walkable course. I had my electric cart, so it was easier, but at least half of the green to tee walks are really far, and a few were really steep. I wouldn't walk again. The snack shack had a tap, so that was nice. I would definitely play this again... wish it wasn't so far for me.

Out yesterday morning to Los Serranos South.

The greens have healed nice from the aeration a few weeks ago. A little bumpy, but very puttable running at 8.

The course was over watered and soggy and the fairways had decent drought coverage. The rough was a mix bag and there is plenty of dirt patches where your ball can roll into. Many par 5's on this course, so if u like those, feast away. Layout is a great mix of holes plus elevation changes. Snack shop was open and starter was super pleasant. We dined in the restaurant and the menu was limited, but glad to see people eating to support the golf course. Course was very busy as usual, and POP was 5 hours as tees times are back to 8 minutes apart.

Played Poppy Ridge for the first time alongside Deepsea14 and MichaelKo during the NCGK Cup final. Been wanting to put this on my list of courses to play and this was the perfect opportunity. Layout is very enjoyable. Lots of elevation changes and a few water hazards thrown in for aesthetics and challenge. Course has three 9 hole layouts and we played the Zinfandel / Merlot combination. Both were very similar in design and style.

Greens had some decent slope to them generally in the form of back to front. No wild multiple undulations that made them “gimmicky”. Greens rolled true at a medium-fast pace. Greens held approach shots well enough.

Fairways were pretty decent. Some thin spots and brown areas here and there but overall ok. A lot of the holes have speed slots that maximize driving distance if you hit them.
Tee boxes were fine, level for the most part with good coverage. Sand traps were very nice. A good amount of fluffy sand. Bunkers are deep. Make that very deep, so having good quality sand made it nice to hit out of.

Check in was friendly and simple. Range is all grass and on nice grass at that! We had a wide open course for the most part. No one in front of us on the front nine and only had minimal waiting on the back nine on the last couple holes. Probably because as a group we were probably only 3-4 over total on the last few holes thanks to a barrage of birdies by Ko.

Restaurant closes at 4pm and bar closes at 5pm so we just missed food. Oh well next time. Definitely a fun course to play that I’m sure I’ll make a point of playing it again.

This is a long awaited review...and i'll cut right to it. THE GREENS ARE BACK!!!!!!

Played yesterday (10/19)...not a sign of the damage on any of the 18 greens. Driving range is open again too.

Not much to say in detail except this course is exactly what you'd expect. It was in great/fantastic shape all around. Greens rolled smooth and true, boxes were amazing, fairways and bunkers were lush and soft. I love this course.

Played Monday 10/18 -

Had the 2nd tee time out as a 3-some and we never saw the first group. Pace of play was awesome. the starter said they were busy, then made a comment that they had something like 100 golfers there for the day. I guess that could be busy, but seemed kind of light in my book when talking about the whole day.

Fairways...nice, smooth covering of grass. Looked thin but you could definitely take a divot and there was some sponginess (not sure if that's a real world) to them that made them nice to hit off of. Would rate them an 8/10.

Boxes...played from the tips...boxes were phenomenal. Well groomed, flat, always nice to get there and not have to hunt for a spot to hit from. Would rate these a 9/10.

Greens...far and away the best part of this course. Were in great shape. No residual affects/impacts of the punching from a few weeks ago. Rolled smooth and true. It rained on us a bit during the round and also had pockets of being so nice that it was hot, so they were a little inconsistent but completely understandable. Not going to give them an "out of 10" rating for this reason.

Rough...light. Easy to hit from. So long as you weren't in the desert, you were able to find your ball and play it every time. Would rate it a 7/10 due to the fact that several areas were downright muddy and not just wet. Could have been because they were watering and because of the rain, but could also just be poor drainage.

Bunkers....found quite a few here...they are nice. Fluffy, soft, easy to hit out of. 9/10

Overall...this place is a good little track that is coming back around. I know it was pretty thin during the summer, but it seems like they're doing a lot to get it back. Only knock is the price...not sure I'd pay $95 for a Monday AM round again, especially since they charge a $15 dollar change fee/cancellation fee (or so the email says) and since you have to pay up front, I believe it.

Played evening time started at 5:30 good pace of play. Greens held shots well. Good playing golf with friends. That’s about all the good stuff. Greens are punched , putts were anything but true.
Worst Teebox’s as I’ve ever been on in my life. Not level and barely any grass patches large enough for a club to address the ball.
This course has lights, but about four tee boxes were dark.
Hard packed bunkers, fringes and rough were decent
Range is packed, they must have a club deal cause the prices are outrageous for individual buckets. $13 for medium and 17 for a large. Really? 1/2 the balls are junk balls also
Not wanting to go back here.
