Second day in Vegas and played with group of Pals on April 30th mid morning. Starter was very friendly and got us out right on time. Course was set amongst homes in a Del Webb Community, Tee boxes were all great, level, easy to put a peg in the ground. Fairways were tight and gave a lot of roll on a well placed tee shot. Rough was easy to play from, though I was lucky enough to not have to play too many shots from off the fairways. Bunkers were easy to play from and had plenty of nice soft sand in them. Greens had some punch marks still visible but the balls rolled true to their line. Saw the beverage cart multiple times. Staff was very friendly and accommodating to all our needs. It was an enjoyable morning of golf and I would play this course again in the future

Played on Friday April 29th with a group of Pals from So Cal. I know this course aerated the greens but it was almost 30 days prior to our round. Tee Boxes were in decent shape with a good spot to place your tee was found except of the first tee box, holes in the tee box forced you to try to find a flat spot to stand on, but the only one that was like that. Fairways were coming back from winter sleep so you got tremendous roll if you placed your tee shot in a desirable area of the fairway. Rough was easy to hit from, some thin spots but fairly plush all around. Bunkers, I was only in two and managed to make good shots from both, they had plenty of sand but people need to rake after yourselves ! Greens were a tragedy for such a beautiful layout. Most putts moved right or left immediately after striking the ball, I guess I am spoiled by my home course having nice greens 10 days after punching. These greens were simply unacceptable. Customer Service was great from start to finish. Paying $159.00 for these conditions was disappointing.

Was lucky enough to join up with the Greenskeeper group that played The Goose on Sunday March 20th. Played with my Buddy Eddie (Putt4Dough) and 2 great Guys, Mr Birdie Chain, and His Pal Matthew (big Bomber). Course was in tremendous shape and of course I play here often so I am partial to Goose. I am lucky to be able to play here often I should say. Tee Boxes were all flat, groomed and easy to find a good spot to put your tee into the ground. Fairways were awesome as always, it is nice to hit a good tee shot in the middle of the fairway and be rewarded with a good lie. Rough is deceiving, looks thin enough but once you strike the ball, all the blades of grass will grab that clubface if you are not steep enough. Bunkers, beautiful white sand that is a treat to hit from and makes a striking contrast to the plush green of the course. Not fluffy, but easy to hit a good sand save. Greens are the best, fast, and pure, breaks are not as big as they seem to be, but you need to be firm to make those putts from long to short. The entire staff at Goose makes you feel like a true friend and welcoming to your day at Goose Creek. Thanks again to Johnny for our Golf "Yelp" site, all the hard work is much appreciated. Goose, it is like our So Cal Augusta.

Played on Nov 5th (Cart Path Only). Course is almost fully recovered from the major fall maintenance as we are accustomed to at THE GOOSE ! So great to return to this lovely track. Greens are running quick and very smooth, fairways are waiting for the grass to be able to accept the tight mowing. Tee Boxes are still a bit hairy but nothing to impede your swing. Rough is long and thick as might be expected. The Bunkers ! full of fine white sand (Please stay away you devil winds). I think the course will be back to awesome conditions in another week or two. I took two photos and will post them. You need to reward yourself with a future round at Goose Creek.

Played on Saturday Oct 9 with Bobby, Paul, and Mike. HighSchool Pals taking in a fantastic day of golf. Eagle Glen punched with the big tines 2 weeks ago and the greens have flourished, very lush so slow putts since not yet able to cut short and roll them but I say in about 10 days these greens will be fun to putt on. Tee Boxes were lush and also have not been cut back. Fairways were in good shape, not too many divots that the lazy sloths leave un-filled. Bunkers all had adequate sand and were easy to play from. Customer Service was tremendous, great staff, probably a great Manager behind all these happy people ! I look forward to my next visit to Eagle Glen.

Pre-Bowling outing with 20 of us. Course was very busy so our first group was delayed about 15 minutes but the starter was keeping everyone informed of the delay and announcing the tee box groups. I did not realize this was the Desert Rose course that I played many moons ago but it closed down a few years ago and re-opened as Sunrise. Course was in great shape, I like to putt on the desert type greens and these greens were in very good shape, faster than they felt and looked but you still needed to be aggressive. Tee boxes were fine, easy to find a nice spot to put your peg in. Fairways rewarded you with a decent lie. Rough was from an inch up to some spots over 4 inches. If you avoid the gully that runs through the course you will score well. I only found the gully once and I paid for it with a triple bogey after dropping my ball and watching it disappear in the long rough. I would recommend this course to anyone, our choices were limited due to the vast majority of courses in the Las Vegas area being in the midst of the fall maintenance. Staff very friendly and helpful. Nice grass range to warm up and large putting area.

Was able to join fellow Greenskeeper Gurus for an enjoyable day at Oak Quarry, I am used to the dormant fairways and lack of sand in the bunkers, the bunkers lost a lot of sand over the past few days due to the strong winds we were subject to here in the I.E. Course was in good winter shape, Tee Boxes were in good shape, flat and easy to find a nice spot to stick your tee. Fairways as all have stated are brownish dormant and roll out is very nice. Playable nonetheless, rough was mostly laying down after the wind episode and was easy to play from. Bunkers were devoid of sand for the majority, some of the green side bunkers had enough sand to at least get your blade into and pop the ball up. Greens were great, rolling fast and true, just don't get too greedy and attack the pins, need to let the ball roll up some.
Thanks to Johnny for setting the day up, look forward to the next Guru outing. Thank you to the staff at Oak Quarry, all great friendly people at The Rock.

I was invited to play this past Tuesday with a close Friend and two of His club buddies, playing on Tuesday right after the PGA played there made for some very difficult conditions, pins were not moved from Sunday final round so they were in some brutal spots, Tee boxes were immaculate and very firm, fairways were like a dream if you managed hit your tee shot properly. The ROUGH was so penal, we didn't know for the first 9 holes that they had instituted a local rule, 3 minutes to find your ball in the rough and if you didnt you would drop at point of entry without penalty. It didn't impact our pace of play as we had to wait on the group in front of us as they also had to wait on the group in front of them and so on. Bunkers were fluffy and fairly easy to get out of. Greens were very fast as you would imagine so holding shots on the approach shots were difficult. Shotgun start at 0700H so we welcomed the suns appearance on our 4th hole. Great day and a treat to play a course in PGA conditions.

Played The Palms on Saturday, Aug 17th, tee'd off at 0600H to beat the heat. My Pal and I were the only two out early and let a fast twosome by us on the 8th hole so we could enjoy the play. First time for me playing Angel Park and was met in the darkness by a friendly worker that brought us a cart, bought some coffee and some muffins for us from the awesome bar keep, Peggy. Starter let us go early, tee boxes were fine, had to hunt a bit for a flat stance but not too hard to get a good spot to tee from. Fairways were full and green so not much roll out. Rough was full and no bare spots, bunkers were still wet from the overnight watering but I was in 6 of them all day and had no trouble getting the ball out with an open blade, greens were firm but very slow though I putted well but its scary to pound that ball to the target. Overall the course was in great playing conditions in spite of the Las Vegas sun beating it up. I will return someday. Oh, I had 3 eagle chances and actually hit the pin on a sidehill slider putt and ended up two inches left of the hole. 5 birdies on the day really made it a fun round for me.

I have played these two courses so many times and it is hard to remember those days when I thought it was so hard to play these courses. Thankfully I have improved over the years so these courses are now a great place to practice and have some challenges. Course is what it is. We all wish there was a bunch of money that could be pumped into a place like this to reach its full potential. Our day was lovely, off at 609am to beat the heat. Tee boxes were in decent shape with only a few boxes that were not flat. Fairways are thin in spots and thick in some others, dont expect alot of roll as your ball will most likely catch the thicker grass. Rough is thin clay or real dense pasture grass. Greens were a bit slow but in good shape with most firm. Bunkers were a little wet since it was early morning but I only was in one for the day and had enough sand to push the ball up and out. Prado sent me a 20% off coupon good for all of August, so the price riding was well worth it. Besides playing with good pals really make it a good day regardless of score.

Round two on Easter Sunday as we ended our weekend of bowling and golf by teeing up at 1:30 with rain drops starting on the first tee box. Facility and Staff were very friendly and helpful in giving us the layout to expect. Great practice facility with nice music playing from rock speakers in and around the driving range and putting green. onto golf, Tee boxes were perfect, no issues on any holes. fairways were in perfect condition with rough surrounding the fairways at 1 to 3 inches. Greens were firm and fast rolling true on some tough pin positions,bunkers were full and sand seemed heavy to hit from. The rain really came down on us on the par 4 4th hole but when we got our bag covers out and protected what we could of our exposed golf gear, it stopped raining and the sun began to peak at us from time to time, a lot of unfilled divots in the fairway, C'mon Man, grab the bottle and shake some sand out ! Little to no wind made the day simply wonderful and it was a great way to close out round 3 for the weekend. I would play this course every week if I could.

Day two of after bowling golf started out at Paiute Snow Mountain. We arrived to a very strong Southerly wind that was like playing in the Inland Empire in November. These courses are so beautiful even with the terrible wind conditions. Tee boxes were flat, groomed and easy to find a nice spot to hit from. Fairways were tight and green everywhere, some minor lazy ass divot damage, rough was a bit penal with 1 to 3 inches in most spots without any bare spots to be found, well except that brown sandy stuff with the prickly trees all over the place. Lots of water comes into play on a few holes, especially the signature par 3 which none of us hit but I escaped with a lucky park due to a nice lag from the fringe. Greens are recovered from the punching in early April so the ball rolled great from all parts of the greens. As we ended one of my buddies said, Hey we gotta stop to buy some balls before we go to TPC, as He left a dozen behind at Snow Mountain.
