Played this AM in 3 H. Tee boxes all fine. Fairways were mixed as to being wet/dry. And of course those that were dry had good roll out. Rough was playable and of course you have various OB, creeks and water to contend with. Traps were playable as I was in 2. Greens were damp, as they were watering ahead of us, due to anticipated heat. So the greens varied in speed of chipping, putting and holding shots. Not ideal, as you were unable to find any consistency. Customer service excellent at all levels. Still virus cautions on masks (check in/cart pick up) and no food other than snack bar.

Played this AM. Just under 4 H POP. Place was packed. Golfers arriving before tee times and causing chaos at starter. 1st tee time is 7 AM? Perhaps they should modify that? Once on the course players seemed to be aware of POP and that was a good thing. Course is in great shape, just over watered due to recent heat wave. Tee boxes were all fine. Fairways were lush/green but very wet so no roll at all. Never had a bad lie. Bunkers (no rakes) were actually playable and heard no complaints. Lots of rough (1 in) and OB + water to contend with if not hitting it straight. Greens were all great and chipped/putted and held shots just fine all round. And had good speed. Customer service excellent at all levels. 1 per cart (OC ules). Masks at check in and at starter only. Snack bar open only. Cart service was out and about.

Played this AM in nice POP of 3 H walking. Course is in good shape given the heat we have had in the area. Tee boxes for the most part were OK. Some better than others. Course was heavily watered, so fairways though green for the most part (some brown areas showing) had no roll. But the lies were very good. Very little rough to deal with at all. Traps were not in good shape on all holes. Greens were all mowed and clean. They chipped, putted and held shots just fine. Still need to book online for tee times. No walk up yet. Range open. Pro shop closed. Restaurant is open for take out only (thurs - Sun). Masks at check in, first tee, between 9 and 10. Not necessary on course. 1 per cart unless family. Customer service excellent at all levels.

Played yesterday in nice 3 H POP. Nice and comfortable when we started but course was wet from overnight watering due to the coming heat. Fairways were good and green but no roll at all until late in the round when it began drying out. Bunkers had all been cleaned and where playable early AM. Greens had not been mowed and with the dampness they were slow all round. But they are in good shape. Still masks at check in and cart pickup (and one cart per player) but not on the course. Restaurant is still not open so only snack bar items. No beverage cart early AM either. Customer service was excellent at all levels. Driving range is now open. Still $60 for Sr rate so perhaps the Players Card is worth it, if you are playing here on a regular basis?

Got up early this AM to play before heading home. IMO this is the best course in the St George area. Remember I said IMO. I find this course not only to have spectacular scenery but it plays to everyone's game. The layout is golfer friendly and that adds to the enjoyment. About the only thing I do not like, is the red sand. Do not play in white golf shoes (I of course did not). Today the course was in magnificent shape. The fairways had great lies and really great roll. Tee boxes were all clean and playable. Traps were all playable. Very little rough, as you have a lot of desert outside of the fairways. And of course on the back 9 you have several canyons to deal with. Greens were top notch and very fast. Glad no wind kicked up until I got finished. Great service at all levels. Put this one on your list to play when in St George.

Played 7/24 on my way home to CA. If this course was in S CA it would cost lots of money to play. This course is in my top 10 and will always be there. This time here the course was in prime condition. Fairways were in top shape, lush and great lies. The rollout is fantastic. Rough was about 1" but playable. Tee boxes all were in nice shape. Traps had good sand and very playable. Greens were fast. They are large with many undulations so putting was a challenge to say the least. I envy those in Grand Junction who get to play this course on a regular basis. I highly recommend this course to all golfers. Customer service was top notch.

A fantastic Club Corp course in Parker CO. Down the road they have a sister course named Blackstone. Played 7/23. First let me say, I have never played a course that had 4 of the hardest Par 3's I have encountered on the same course (pics shortly). In addition the elevation changes are either a pleasure or a nightmare, depending upon your ball striking and how far you hit it. When you use the driving range, you will get to see what many of the holes coming up will look like. Several of the holes have canyons disecting the fairway and green, so the longer you can drive it, the better off you will be. But every Par 3 either has a canyon or water to clear to reach in regulation. Loved them and hated them at the same time. The course is just beautiful. Tee boxes immaculate. Fairways were just cut the right height to provide fantastic roll (remember you are in CO) and lies. Bunkers clean but deep and playable. Rough is thick and penal. Sidehills have deep vegetation. Not to mention the canyons and water that come into play. Greens were at 12 and large and you needed local knowledge as to where to land. Lets say it was a STRONG challenge not to 3 putt or even more. Great clubhouse and the restaurant was open for patio seating. Customer service was top notch. This is another course that should not be missed when in Denver area. And no doubt Blackstone is just as good.

Arnold Palmer design in Morrison CO outside Denver from the 90's. Never heard of it before but the first word to describe it is WOW. Played 7/22. Spectular setting with unbelievable elevation changes. Tee boxes were unlike anything I had ever seen before. They were like artificial turf but real grass (give that a 10). Fairways were green and lush and had terrific roll and GREAT lies. Rough outside of fairways and around greens was 2 in and good luck even finding the ball, let alone advancing it. Not to mention the side hills covered in dense weeds, water guarding several holes, canyons to carry and uphill and downhill holes. Lets just say it is not a walkers course. The sand traps were large and deep with terrific sand and they had rakes. The greens were running at 12/13 and you NEVER wanted to be short sided in a bunker or above the hole. The last 3 finishing holes are awesome. 16 par 4 dogleg right with water guarding a peninsula green; 17 par 3 water carry to the green; 18 long dogleg left with a huge canyon to clear before hitting the fairway. You know some money has been won/lost on these three holes. I would rate this in my top 10 all time private courses played. Beautiful old style designed clubhouse. Meticulous driving range all grass. This was a tough course to play the first time w/o local knowledge. But what a fantastic course to play. If you are in Denver and have a way to play here, PLEASE do so. You will not regret it.

Played 7/20. Wonderful old school course done in 1903. A fantastic designed course. Played with an old friend who is a member. This course was so lush. How lush. The ball set up in the fairways like it was on a tee. Amazing. And the roll out was fantastic. Tee boxes were great. Rough was only 1 inch but playable. Bunkers were great and had rakes. Greens were rolling at 12 and with the slopes and undulations it was a wild ride. The management is just fantastic to guests.

Played 7/21. Love this course. One of the best public courses in CO. Used for numerous qualifying State and National tournaments. Walking Stick is a form of desert cactus. So named as it looks like a walking stick. But do not go near it. This course is a combination links and traditional because of the use of bunkers and no bunkers. So it is a joy to play. It sits along an old river bank and has numerous desert OB, small canyons to avoid along fairways, hit over. It also has a decent amount of elevation changes to challenge the best hitters. The rough is 2 inches and terrible and you might just as well take a drop and play on. If you are in the area by all means to play here. Fairways were like carpet. The lies and roll were fantastic (good rains lately in the area). Tee boxes are all great. Greens were rolling at 13 and you could easily putt it off the green into rough, canyon or a Walking stick if not careful. Just a gem of a public course to play. I can't wait to come back.

Jim Engh is my favorite course designer. So it was great to get back out here after a few years. The course has matured so nicely since my last visit 3 years ago. This is truly one of Engh's best designs IMO. As I said previously it is one course you will either love or hate. No bunkers but huge what they call hogbacks to navigate. Even large mounds in the greens. Greens are large and undulating and had great speed in them, so putting was a challenge. But when isn't it. Fairways had good coverage and lies and the roll was outstanding. Mostly all desert outside of the fairways and some little canyons to navigate as well from tees. Plus while the area looks flat, you are at 5 K feet. I love the back 9 here as it has 3 par 3's and 3 par 5's. An Engh design on most of his courses (Lakota Canyon, Golf Club at Redlands Mesa). The course is about a 45 minute drive from Pueblo but well worth the drive IMO if you are in the area. Short drive from CO Springs as well. But it is a course you won't likely forget after you play it.

Needed to get out of CA for a change of scenery. Headed out to AZ, CO for the rest of the month yesterday. Started my golf adventure here this AM, due to the great reviews by sbarajasjr and mpisarski01. I also thank Matt for his wonderful pictures. That way I did not have to take time out from a wonderful, peaceful and beautiful day of golf (LOL). There really is not a great deal I can say that they have not noted? So I will do it this way. I did not get my butt kissed and was treated like a member, even being from CA and it was wonderful. Yes the ball does roll and it made me feel young again. Rough - I lost a few balls and was worried I might loose my shoes (deep). Views are spectacular and you can easily lose your concentration. Not to mention your life if you step to close to the edge of the tee box on a few downhill holes. Never had a bad teeing area. Bunkers were very playable. Thank you both for the heads up on the greens. They were fast and I paid attention right from the start and only had 1 (yes 1 - 3 putt). And no, neither of you are getting paid for your advice. Course goes into my top ten immediately and I am now struggling with which one to move to # 11. Having only driven past Sedona previously I am so very glad I stopped to not only enjoy the golf course, but Sedona as well. Totally understand what this place means to so many. I never had this on my bucket list. But I am certainly glad I took the time to come here. I sincerely hope more GK members have the opportunity to play this spectacular course. You will not go away disappointed. This experience (not that I did not already know) is why you read the reviews on GK. Please go experience this for yourself, as no matter how much is written, you have to see it and play it to really appreciate it.
