Played several times this week. Greens improving every day. almost back to normal and rolling smoothly again after spring maintenance. With the temps north of 105 a few days, speed still a tad slower than usual. Barely any remnants of the top dressing still present.

Tees, boxes, fairways, rough and sand in outstanding shoulder season condition.

Excellent, fun, challenging layout. Really good practice area,

Nice restaurant onsite, excellent customer service. Even saw a drink cart out making the rounds today, rare here. Recommended.

9 holes scheduled to be closed most of the summer for sprinkler renovation. Open 9 just reopened after spring greens maintenance.

Fun, challenging layout with many fun holes. From tee to green, excellent shoulder season condition. Greens still show the effects of punching/sanding. You fly an iron onto a green and you see sand fly up and the ball will not hold well. Probably at least 10 days out until the greens are fully healed.

Excellent customer service, nice practice facility. Good restaurant onsite. would wait until mid June when the greens will be putting smooth again.

Facility currently down to 18 holes for maintenance. IMO, they opened up the Mountain front too early after spring punching. These greens are bumpy and it will probably be at least another week before they are good again. No 2' putt is a gimmee on these things, you could bounce offline and miss the hole from a few ft. away on a relatively good putt.

Layout plays very different this time of year where they have all the rough remotely close to the greens mostly shaved down. Opens up putter or low bump/run as an option from well off many greens. Flipside is that when your ball rolls over a green, there is nothing to stop it from rolling well down until you hope it finally finds some taller grass or a low spot. Because if it does not, cactus and desertscape awaits.

Course from tee to the fringes is in excellent shoulder season shape. Had an out of state guest play with me last weekend and they charged him $63. I had 2 thoughts... First, was pleasantly surprised the guest rates were that low on Memorial Day weekend. But second, $63 is probably too much based on the current condition of these greens. Great layout, beautiful course. But really firm, sanded, fast greens that are bumpy is not my idea of a good time.

But POP is excellent. Basically whatever I choose this time of year with temps around 100 twilight when I usually play.

First time out after being away for a couple of weeks. Knew I was not going to get all 18 in, so decided to change things up and play tees that were unrated. I normally play the Green tees, which is 1/2 Black and 1/2 Gold. So half the black/gold tees I never have played. So played Gold on my normal Black tee holes and Black on my normal Gold tee holes. Would have to play that version a few times, but on first impression... Some of the Blacks I normally do not play, glad I don't, because there are some LONG holes from there...lol.

Beginning to get in "summer shape" although still clearly "shoulder season" condition. Firming up and drying out as the temps rise.

Tees and Fairways still very lush and well maintained. Sand almost always immaculate. Rough plays better than it looks when the Bermuda is still not completely out of dormancy everywhere. Mowed low but still will grab your club.

Greens very good, but not what they were a few weeks ago. Firm and smooth. But easier to putt once you get the speed down because they are not nearly as quick as they were in prime season.

Customer service excellent. Recommended.

Milder, wetter winter set this layout up for hopefully a longer plush shoulder season now that hot temps have returned. Still green, lush and playing very firm now that above 90 is again the norm.

Greens very firm and roll medium fast with few ball marks. Sand almost always excellently maintained here. Fairways/tees mowed low and very well maintained. Weak point if you consider 8/10 weak is the rough which is mowed low and a mixture of grasses, some coming out of dormancy, some already nice and lush.

Great practice facility, good restaurant, customer service always a ++ here. Recommended.

Course continues to be in fine shape, albeit a notch below what it was maybe a month ago. No recent rain and warmer temps have the course dried out again.

The back 9 will be closing for 3+ months soon to redo the sprinkler system. Not sure if that is a factor or just what I wrote above. However, putts I was running 3-5' by the hole a few weeks ago are now coming up 2-3' short. They look nice, but they went from medium fast bordering on too fast for recreational golfers to medium slow in about 2 weeks.

Fairways lush and nice to play from, lots of rolls. Good POP rough, you can almost always spot your ball from 50 yards away. Tees very well kept up, lush with few divots and the sand is among the best around here.

Course completely unwalkable because it is so spread out. Nice restaurant, excellent driving range with multiple practice areas. Almost always excellent customer service. Highly recommended.

Played twilight today in very windy conditions.

Tee boxes immaculate with almost no divots because they are prepping them daily to have them looking sharp for the shootout next week. Same for the fairways. Firm, cut down and lush which produces some ridiculously long drives.

Sand very well maintained. Rough just long enough to be penal but not overly penal. Large green roll well and are firm. You have to play for release even on high, soft shots. They have many of the areas around the greens cut lower than usual. Nice for playing bump and run shots up/over mounds around greens. However, the flipside of that is approach shots barely missing greens won't stop right beside the green and will roll to a collection area.

Really nice, lush range that has 2 practice chipping greens. Snack shop at the turn, above average golf course Restaurant @ the Lodge.

Customer Service always very good. Well stocked pro shop. Carts have very good GPS systems. Highly recommended.

Played twilight twice this week. Temps in the mid 70's and breezy have dried the course out after all the recent rain.

They always try and get the courses looking and playing their best around "Shootout" time, the Member-Guest tournament which is next week. With the wet winter, the course is definitely lusher than it was last year at this time.

Tees boxes and fairways are immaculate. Fairways cut down and firm, they play like the fairways @ the Masters on TV. Drives rolling, and rolling and rolling. Sand well maintained. Lare greens firm, smooth and medium fast. Rough not overly penal, you can almost always et decent club on the ball.

Snack stand at the turn, full service restaurant inside the Lodge. Driving range very lusg and well maintained. Customer service always top notch here. Highly recommended.

A wetter than average winter has this layout about as lush as it will ever get. Now that things are drying out... if you do not like lush, firm and fast on both the fairways and greens, then do not come here right now. Currently PGA Tour quality. Enough said.

I usually avoid the crowded morning play and go out twilight. POP has been excellent, under 3.5H rounds. Weather also excellent, usually has not been windy and low 70's.

The Mountain course remains in excellent condition, near immaculate in many areas. Greens are firm and putt very nice. They are quick on downhillers! Fairways firming up and getting a decent amount of roll again after being soft for nearly 2 months after the overseeding. Sand traps almost always maintained in excellent condition.

Great staff, nice GC restaurant and snack shop on site. Usually no drink cart. Recommended.

Went out twilight a couple of times this week. POP great, under 3.5H both times and the weather has been in the low 70's. Very pleasant.

Greens putt nicely, firm and quick. You better be a good lag putter on these large greens because you are likely to have many 50-100' putts that would be chips on many courses. And be prepared to play a bunch of break and trust that the slope will die it at the hole.

Course from tee to green is in excellent conditions. Lush and well kept up by the staff.

Excellent layout, fun to play. Rated slightly easier than the Mountain course, but it is far from asy. Nice restaurant on site, staff here is almost always top notch. Recommended.

I usually just go out as a single and get matched up with whomever, often out of towners here on vacation. Today was a real treat to play with 3 Sr. members who were fun to play with and played some good golf. Low 60's and calm.

Excellent layout. The better (and tougher) of the 2 Ventana courses IMO. Nice restaurant on site, staff here is almost always top notch. Recommended.
