Played here yesterday with my son. We had a 1:54 tee time. The course has all the COVID-19 precautions in place and really has a good system. Only those with a reservation can enter the front gate. Contactless check-in and payment with the clerk indoors and a desk in the doorway preventing customers from entering. All singles unless two members of the same household want to play together. (Twosome maximum.) No carts, walking only. No touching the pin. Cups are adjusted so they are very shallow and the ball just sort of wedges between the pin and the edge of the cup. No rakes in bunkers. We teed off a few minutes early and pace of play was slow, which was then compounded when a single jumped in between us and the group in front of us on the 5th hole, and he was talking on his cell phone non-stop (or pretending to) and ignoring everyone around. Pace improved on the back as some people were just playing 9. Overall POP was 3:20.

The course is in quite good condition. Greens are far and away the highlight. They are smooth, a little more firm than soft and medium speed. Nos. 6 & 12 seemed a little different than the rest (12 was just re-built, I believe). Fairways are really great in spots and not so hot in others. Rough also varies from hole to hole. There are various types of grasses throughout the course as well. I was in one or two bunkers and they were good. Tee boxes were the low point, pretty clumpy and many were very hard and difficult to get a tee in the ground.

It felt great to get out of the house, enjoy the fresh air, play golf and support the course and its employees. Thanks to the staff for implementing practices that make it feel safe to play.

Played here Sunday afternoon, 3/15 after I played the Tournament course in the morning. Played the first 4-5 holes quickly by myself but then caught a logjam, although I expected it because the pro shop guy told me the course was busy. A single behind me joined me on No. 6 and we played the rest of the round together. Still a good pace and finished in just about 3:00 total. It got really windy all of a sudden on the 10th hole and stayed pretty windy the rest of the round. Otherwise perfect golf weather all day.

Conditions are very nice. I gave the course 9s across the board. Greens are smooth, firm and medium-fast. Fairways are excellent. Rough is nice and much less penal than the Tournament course... maybe 2 inches deep although some areas around greens were a little thicker. Bunkers were fantastic. Tee boxes too.

First time playing this course as well. It's my least favorite of the three at MHCC. While nice, it has a very generic "desert golf" feel and appearance that evokes nearby courses like Desert Springs, Desert Falls, Bermuda Dunes, etc. To its credit, it has lots of beautiful flowers in vibrant bloom and keeps things interesting with quite a few doglegs. Also some nice dramatic bunkering in spots. It's by far the most forgiving of the three MHCC courses. Recommended if you haven't played it, but if you have, I'd opt for one of the other two courses first.

Played here Sunday, 3/15 at 9:30. Played with a couple guys also from South OC and another visiting from Dallas. I played the ANA tees. Pace was decent and we finished in just around 4:20.

Course conditions, as you would expect with a major championship scheduled in just over two weeks (but unfortunately postponed due to current events), are outstanding. The greens are firm and extremely smooth. I waffled between ranking them 9 or 10 but chose 9 because they looked like they'd be a little faster than they actually were. The firmness makes it very difficult to get shots to stop quickly; it's best to land short and play for some bounce and/or roll-out. Fairways are very nice, very lush and just a notch below some of the nicest I've ever played. Rough is extremely lush, thick and sneaky deep. It doesn't really look that deep, but when your ball is in it, it often sinks down and the rough is between 3-5 inches deep. Bunkers had good sand but were a little firmer underneath than I expected. Tee boxes have excellent grass coverage and are manicured to perfection, although I was surprised a couple of the ANA tees seemed slightly unlevel. On both the fairways and the tee boxes, it's extremely rare to see an unfilled divot. Either the members take great pride in filling all of theirs or the staff goes out and fills divots at the end of the day, or maybe both.

This was my first time playing the course and I really enjoyed it. The undulating fairways give it some nice character and the multiple doglegs keep things interesting. Also, it's very fun walking across the bridge to the 18th green, having seen so many participants over the years at the Dinah Shore/ANA take that walk to decide the year's first major. I look forward to playing it again with some local knowledge under my belt.

Highly recommended.

Played here Saturday, 2/29 with a 12:04 start time. Checked in around 11:20 and they asked if I was ready. When I said yes, they promptly sent me off to catch a twosome who had just headed out. Caught them before they left the first tee and played with them most of round. The single behind us eventually joined us as well. We played the Western nine followed by the U.S. Open nine, finishing in just about 4 hours flat on a busy course. All the pro shop workers and outside attendants were very friendly and welcoming. After finishing 18, I asked to continue on the Masters nine and was granted permission. I played behind a twosome and just took my time, snapping a lot of pictures in the beautiful afternoon shadows and sunlight. I still finished in about 1:45.

Conditions are excellent. Greens are medium-fast to fast, very smooth and quite firm. Only high shots from short irons stopped quickly. The members I played with said the greens are often even faster, which would really be an adventure. I had a very hard time reading these greens. Fairways are outstanding; lush, deep green and mowed with aesthetically pleasing patterns, sometimes in stripes and sometimes in diagonal crosshatch. The rough is also very lush, and semi-thick in many places. Balls would often stick in it rather than bounce out of it (on hillsides bordering fairways) back to the fairway. The bunkers I was in were good. Green tee boxes were very nice with maybe a couple having very minimal lumpiness, if I want to get really nitpicky.

The longest combination of two nines plays just over 6500 yards here, but I played a tee forward from that, and these courses are difficult! I hit the ball poorly all day and really struggled. It's a very tight course with many holes routed through canyons. It's also very hilly, which is a lot of fun. Barrancas and water hazards come into play on many holes. As one member mentioned to me, "It's a beautiful course but it's a son of a b$tch ." Couldn't agree more and definitely want another shot at it. The golden sunlight during my last nine might've partially influenced me, but even without it I think the Masters nine is the best of the three. Western is probably the most demanding. (The nines are named after significant professional victories of the club's longtime head pro, Ralph Guldahl, not any correlation to those tournament venues.)

Highly recommended (but bring your 'A' game).

Played here today with an 11:58 tee time. First-class facility with valet parking, friendly check-in, plentiful practice areas and clear announcements of calling people to the tee for all three courses. The starter had every group wait until the group ahead is on the first green, creating a little buffer from the start. I was paired with another single visiting from Kentucky and a couple visiting from Florida. I think we started just a few minutes late and finished in just about 4.5 hours.

Conditions are pretty much excellent. Greens are smooth as can be, medium-fast and more firm than soft. Full shots didn't make much of a ball mark and took a bounce or two before stopping. Fairways are deep green, lush and provide ample cushion under the ball. Dormant bermuda rough is cut pretty short, not too penal and provides a nice visual contrast to the fairways. I was only in one fairway bunker and it was good. Tee boxes excellent.

I hadn't played here since a high school tournament over Spring Break '89! Course plays generally on the other side of Dinah Shore Drive from the clubhouse except for holes 1 and 18. I actually remembered it being more difficult than it is. Tons of water and pretty severe Pete Dye bunkering. Also quite a few elevated greens. But like most Dye courses, if you avoid the severe trouble spots, very playable. The last four holes are the standouts in my book, with a short par-4 15th with a severely elevated green, a fantastic par-5 16th that goes uphill on the second shot and then drops down to a little, well-protected green. The 17th is a typical Dye 17th with lots of water, as the green juts out into a lake like a peninsula. The finisher is relatively toned down for Dye, with water all down the left.

Highly recommended if you have a chance to play here!

Played here today with a 12:30 TeeOff.com "Deal" time to close out my Vegas golf trip. They had me scheduled for Desert Hawk/Coyote Run but had me play Coyote Run first. Then as I finished No. 9 a friendly employee approached me and offered for me to play Eldorado next so I could avoid the groups I was waiting on throughout the front nine. This worked out great because I had never played it and I was able to play it super quickly. Total POP for 18 was 3:10. Customer service top notch from the shop staff and outside attendants.

Course is in really good shape, although the greens were a little perplexing. Greens have poa annua (or similarly blossoming grass) with tons of blossoms, creating a patchwork appearance and bumpiness. (I almost wondered if they weren't mowed today with the blossoms so apparent by noontime.) They were medium speed and quite firm. Even well-struck shots ran out a bit on this very windy day. Fairways, rough, tee boxes and sand were all great. The sand did have lots of little pebbles in it, but with the new(ish) rule, that's no longer a big deal.

I'd played here one other time and loved it, and today I loved it even more. For some reason I had in my head that Eldorado was the "lesser" of the three nines, but now having played it, I think it's just as good as the other two. I love how raw and rugged this course is, with dry desert washes running through it and the natural-looking berms bordering the washes. I really consider it among the top public-access courses in the entire Las Vegas area. Highly recommended.

Played here this morning with a 7:40 TeeOff.com "Deal" time that was absurdly low priced. I had another tee time at 12:30 way across town, and yesterday one of the guys I played Bear's Best with is a Siena resident who said play is never fast at Siena. As a result, I showed up early and told the starter I was ready immediately, and she let me go by myself around 7:15. She said I'd run into the Men's Club shotgun at some point, but I never did, and I finished by about 9:45. Worked out great!

The course is in decent winter shape, but definitely the lowest quality of the four courses I played over the last 3 days. Greens were good to great, medium fast overall and could get really fast on downhill/downwind putts. They were smooth although there were lots of old ball marks. Fairways were mostly good but a little thin. Rough was mostly dormant and thin. The visual delineation from fairway to rough wasn't as striking here with more dappled appearance. Tee boxes were pretty beat up and fair at best. Bunkers had a thin layer of sand on top of what felt like concrete; gotta pick it clean here.

I'd played here several summers ago and really loved the course and found it in great condition at that time. It's a far cry from those conditions right now, and it seems housing has encroached further, making it a little more claustrophobic feeling than I remembered. Still a good layout with some fun holes.

Played here on Monday, 2/10, the second day of my Vegas golf trip. I had an 11:30 time and apparently no one else was booked at that time. The starter sent out a couple who asked to play alone right in front of me, and then started telling me he was searching for people to pair me with. He kept asking me to wait because he knew some people had told him they were willing to go early, but he couldn't find them and/or they'd decided to eat first. Meanwhile, my tee time eventually passed when he asked me again if I wanted to wait. I said no and he reluctantly let me go to the tee by myself. It really irks me when courses act like it's my problem that I don't have a playing partner. Hey buddy that's your problem; I'm just here to play golf. Then after all that, right after I hit my first tee ball, another single rolled up to join me. So we played together and then invited the twosome behind us to join us for the last 5 holes or so. POP seemed slow but we finished in about 4:15.

That was only a minor issue and otherwise the starter was really nice, and probably just felt bad for me having to play alone. I just don't like when they act like it's my problem.

Conditions are excellent, definitely the best of the four courses I played over the last 3 days. Greens were great, smooth and medium fast and medium firmness. Full shots would take a bounce or two before stopping. Also, the 17th green seemed like it hadn't been mowed or something; definitely longer grass and slower pace than all the others. Fairways were excellent. The dormant rough was also in excellent shape and sometimes nasty where your ball sinks down and becomes hard to see and extra grabby when playing through it. Tee boxes were good. Sand in the bunkers was fantastic. Some of the best I've encountered recently.

This was my second time here. I really enjoy the course. Some of the Strip views from 5+ years ago have disappeared due to more homes being built, but there are still a few holes with stunning views of the entire valley. Plus many of the homes that line this course are breathtaking; they almost look like small hotels, not houses. Anyway, highly recommended although I didn't pay rack rate. I used my ClubCorp Play Away to get it for ~$42 with tax.

Played 36 holes here Sunday, 2/9 to kick off a 3-day Vegas golf trip. Tee time was 12:03 and was welcomed to the course, able to use the locker room to change shoes, etc. I hit a few putts and was sent on my way as a single. Things moved quickly and I finished in about 2:30, so I kept going and played the second round even faster. Finished 36 in about 4:45, all solo. Played through one or two groups the whole day. It was cold and extremely windy (no snow tho like Matt and Rob got... I would've preferred snow to these crazy winds).

Conditions are good overall. Greens are probably the highlight. They were extremely fast when downwind/downhill, and then on uphill/into the wind putts sometimes you had to hit it pretty hard to get to the hole. They were smooth and medium firmness. Green fairways looked pristine from afar but were actually a little thin when you were on top of them. Not a whole lot of cushion under the ball this time of year. Same goes for the dormant rough, which provides a great visual contrast to the fairways, but does little to stop balls running through it. Tee boxes were mixed, some good condition some poor with lumpy areas on the bad ones. The bunkers ranged from good condition to excellent.

This was my first time here. It's a pretty decent course. I didn't love it, but it has some good holes and then a bunch of forgettable ones. I definitely look forward to returning under more playable weather conditions. The wind wreaked havoc on me all day here (and for all five rounds I played on this trip, actually). Lots of water hazards, some of which are more for aesthetics than actually coming into play. I really liked holes 1, 6, 7, 9, 10, 13, 15 & 18. I'll probably play here again in April on my next Vegas trip.

Decided this morning I'd rather play golf than watch all of the Super Bowl, so I jumped in the car and headed to San Clemente. Arrived around 12:10 and asked to be put on the list. They must've had special Super Bowl special rates (I know they were offering 9-hole rates midday, but I told them I was planning to play 18) because they only charged me $20 to walk, and I teed off at 12:25. Paired with a dad and his two boys. We all walked and finished in just under four hours, good enough to get home before halftime. Couldn't ask for much better other than maybe nicer weather. It was overcast and a little cool and windy. It felt great but the course didn't look quite as nice as it would under sunny skies.

Gotta agree with sparky14 and weber about conditions. It's really nice out there right now, definitely the lushest fairways I've played in the last few weeks. Greens are medium-fast and smooth. They were medium firmness; some shots took a bounce or two before stopping. Rough was healthy and a little longer than the fairways but not too penal. Bunkers I was in were all good. Blue tees were good except for No. 14 which is really thin.

I hadn't played on kikuyu for quite a while and it seemed extra grabby today. I love this course and always enjoy any chance to return here, especially when it's in good condition like it is right now. Highly recommended for the layout, conditions, value and views.

Played here today with mpisarski, gregholla and Hillary. Started at 12:20, waited only a few times, and finished in just under four hours. Cloudy and cool most of the day with only a few minutes of sunlight.

Course is in good condition for winter. Greens are smooth, medium-fast to fast and accept full shots really well. A few holes were near ridges and if you ran your ball too far, it was gone. Fun to putt. Fairways had good coverage and green grass but were maybe a bit thin. Rough was lighter in color and provided a little more fluff under the ball in most spots. The first couple bunkers I was in (both sides of No. 1 green) were pretty thin, but the rest were good. They are full of bright white sand and look really great. Gold tee boxes were lush and well manicured.

I'd played North several times many years ago but had never played South until today. From what I recall of North, South is a little less dramatic and less demanding. You do need to be hitting the ball straight because no two holes touch each other, so you're always playing through corridors with lots of penalty areas if you get too far left or right. All the par 5s were fantastic and interesting. The par 3s are two short ones and two long ones. Fun times!

Played in the GK Cup final here on Sunday with mnielson, JohnnyGK and Nickesquire. First time here and really enjoyed the course.

Conditions are what you'd expect in winter except for the excellent greens, which were definitely the high point. They were smooth, fast and accepted full shots well, but shorter shots tended to run out quite a bit. Really fun to putt and I feel like I was just getting a good feel for them toward the very end of the round. Fairways were thin but with decent coverage. Rough was a little spottier; my ball ended up on bare spots once or twice. The bunkers I was in – one fairway and one greenside – were both good, especially the greenside one, which was excellent. Blue tee boxes were a little beat up but not a big deal.

I really enjoyed the layout, which snakes through housing but also has some spots where several holes converge and provide less of a "housing tract" course. Friendly staff and seems like they have great rates, too. Definitely recommended, and I'd like to play it again sometime with lusher conditions. Thanks to Johnny and Nick for setting it up and thanks to the course to having us out!

Finally, big congrats to Mike for capturing the Cup! Fun day!
