Played on Sunday, 12/27, with JohnnyGK, John_T, and KevBig. Having played this summer and remembering between the heat and long Bermuda rough, it beat me up pretty good. As we drove up and began to catch views of the course, my apprehension change to anticipation. Lush green fairways framed by tan dormant Bermuda is one of my favorite golf course looks.

The clubhouse area has a very relax feel, kinda like a local muni. Basic load your cart and go. Grill staff was very friendly, great prices, and a very good selection of drinks. Pro shop had a nice little selection of clothing at prices a bit less than some clubs. After the almost 2 hour drive, we passed on the large grass driving range and stood around on the wooden back porch watching players go off 10.

Course was in pretty good winter conditions. The new tee boxes (they were working on them this summer) are all grown in and pretty good. Fairways were very green with very little (if any) bare areas. Rough was dormant but not cut, so it did have a little bite. I was in a couple of green side bunkers. 1 was still wet from the morning watering and the other had decent, heavy sand. The greens were very different from the summer, when they have to keep them long and slow. While not fast, they were a medium speed, a few bumps, but mostly very good.

Course is very fun, with lots of variation. The par 3 8th has a tee shot over water to a tripe tier green that drops at least 6 feet from back to front. The almost drivable par 4 16th may be my favorite. Definitely a great play in the Laughlin/Bullhead area.

Played the GK Guru outing on 12/14 with noonish tee times. First time back since the GK year ending event about 9 years ago, so everything seemed new to me. Super friendly staff grabbed the bag as I walked up and the brand new cart was set and ready to go. There's an outdoor snack shack at the bottom of the clubhouse with some good food options. I had the grilled chicken sandwich with green chile and it was delicious.

It seems everything about the course is big. Big clubhouse. Big fairways. Big bunkers. And big greens. While not immaculate, the course was in pretty good shape. There were some blemishes but most did not affect play. Fairways were dry and firm, allowing some roll out on drives. Bunkers were filled with some of the fluffiest sand I've played, definitely not desert like bunkers. Greens were smooth and medium speed.

Classic Club reminds me of many Arnold Palmer designed courses. Wide fairways. A nice mix of short and long par 4s. Some risk/reward shots with bail out areas. They have a great collection of par 3s, and the two on the back 9 are incredible. A must play in the area.

Played a GK Guru round on Monday, 12/14. From bag drop to the cart return, the experience is what you would expect from a high end golf resort. Pro shop, locker room, driving range and putting greens were all top notch.

I've never considered a golf course as "pretty" but this course is pretty. Conditions were immaculate from tee to green. Fairways were lush and green. The rough was thick and about 2 inches. Greens were immaculate, smooth and medium fast.

This is the third time I've played here and I like it more every time. Each hole his distinct, there's some elevation changes, and the scenery and views are incredible.

Absolutely should be on the list from any Palm Springs area trip.

Played the year end GK event on Sunday, 12/13. Second time here, having played it a year ago, after days of rain with the course lush but wet. This year, the course was playing firm and dry. While the fairways were not as lush, they were extremely playable. It's not fair to compare this year to last, as the weather has a hand in them. Despite the heat they encountered during reseeding, I thought the course was in incredible shape. Tee boxes level, fairways almost lush, rough was lush and made you pay if you were in it, and bunkers had nice, fluffy sand. The greens were absolutely the best. A bit firm and a almost fast.

I didn't hit from the all grass range but I found the practice green in the same conditions as the course.

The food/beverage staff was incredible. The bartender (I wish I got her name) made an incredible Bloody Mary and the on course Snack Shack had a great selection of beers. The to go food was very good. Unfortunately the rear patio was closed but looked like would be awesome to sit on after the round.

I enjoyed Rams Hill more this year than last. I'm a huge fan of fast and firm and the course was very fun to play. Outside of the back to back par 3s at 9 and 10, I didn't find any holes the same. Worth a drive from either Palm Springs or San Diego (which is a really cool drive).

Played on Sunday, 12/6, in a 16 person outing with tee times just after 9. After some frost delays the past few days, none today and everything was running on time. Carts were preset for all groups and included 2 bottles of water.

All grass range with plenty of spacing for golfers from both courses. Add in a large practice putting green and a separate chipping/bunker area and you have a great practice facility on the far south side of the valley.

The course conditions lived up to the hype I've been hearing since they came out of re-seeding. Tee boxes a little beat up, particularly on the par 3s, but most are fairly level and spread out to find a nice spot. Rough is dormant Bermuda, so you get the green/tan contrasts and the ball will run down the hills surrounding the fairways. Fairways were lush and green, with very little thin areas, with plenty of run out. Bunkers were groomed and had rakes, but a bit thin and some had lots of pebbles. The greens were outstanding. They were firm, but soft enough to leave some ball marks on those spinning shots. Greens were probably as fast as they could get without being unfair, just smooth and tricky.

Out of the 2 courses here, I prefer Concord over Lexington, it's just a fun course with opportunities to score. All the par 3s have elevation changes and the 18th is one of the best finishers in the valley. If I lived closer, I would play here more often, and worth a round while in Vegas.

Played on Friday, 11/20, 9:30 tee time with John_T, Famed02, and our buddy Chris, and paid $56 with the Arroyo/Siena card.

Course is in pretty good condition. Fairways are pretty well cover and have been gradually getting better. Visually, the rough doesn't look great, as the Bermuda is starting to go dormant, so it looks spotty with green and brown throughout. Sand was ok, depending on the bunker, I had some with decent sand and others that were basically hard pan with a thin layer (I was in lots of bunkers). The greens were outstanding, fast and receptive, but some had many unfixed ball marks.

Easy check in and the cart barn had everything set up. Drink cart was around 3-4 times and we enjoyed a drink on the patio overlooking the lagoon afterwards. Carts are new with GPS and upgraded bluetooth speakers. Large grass range (included) and a huge putting green.

C-19: masks required indoors, 2 person carts equipped with the clear bungee cord shower curtain, divot bottles are on the carts and rakes are in the bunkers. Noodles are in the cup but some are way too long.

Not a Vegas golf destination course, but a fun and relaxing round.

Played in a charity scramble event with a bunch of guys from work on Sunday, 11/15.

Course was in pretty good shape overall. Tee boxes mostly level, but some had some crowning. The Bermuda rough is in the early stages of going dormant. The one bunker (yes, we had to play from 1 green side during a scramble) had some nice medium heavy sand and easy to hit from. The greens were the highlight. Smooth and fast, but holding shots.

The course handled the event very well, with about 50 groups in a shotgun start. Drink cart was out and passed a couple times on both sides. The lunch was perfect and the banquet was handled in accordance with the current standards. Carts were plush but no GPS. A nice range with mats that have a slot for tees, large putting green and a separate chipping/bunker area.

C-19: 2 to a cart but they were equipped with the clear shower curtain I've seen around town (they're attached with bungee cords just below the roof and the bottom of the windshield, but can be rolled up if you wish). Masks required indoors and around the staff areas, short PVC pipes in the hole, no flags on the putting green and holes were almost level. Locker rooms currently closed for some renovations.

CanyonGate is about 30 years old but has aged well. It's a Ted Robinson design and has a very Rhodes Ranch feel to it. Wide fairways and a nice variety of holes.

Played on Friday, 11/13, with John_T, and a couple of his work buddies. 7:35am tee time for $45 with the OB Card.

Itslikeimsayin's review from 3 days ago is awesome. I play here a lot so his review of the course is probably better than what I could say about my home course. Conditions are in prime shape right now, a couple months out of tee to green re-seeding. Greens are easily in the best shape I've seen them in and running faster than they look.

Only bad point today was pace of play. I'm never looking to rush around the course, especially in the morning, but there's no reason to fall 2 holes back on the front 9. We finished in just over 4 hours, but it could of easily been 3.5 or so, with us waiting on every hole.

We were in a bad position for the drink cart, hitting her early in the round and on the last hole, but saw her 2 other times. Unfortunately no marshal was out to regulate the pace.

Played on Veterans' Day with John_T and a couple of buddies who are HS golf coaches. There was a frost delay which pushed times back about 30 minutes and we got off around 12:15. I was a bit worried we would fail to finish but everyone was chasing daylight and we finished right about 4 hours.

Course was in great conditions. Tee boxes mostly level and plenty of area on the par 3s to find a spot. Fairways were a bit tight but all green with no dirt areas. Rough was variable through the course, going from just past fairway to about about 2 inches, with it a bit thicker and longer around the green. Bunkers were outstanding, with the "South Pacific" theme throughout the course, the white sand bunkers were easy to hit from with some decent depth to them. The greens were awesome, outside of the unfixed ball marks from previous groups. Greens were smooth and running as fast as they looked.

Overall, it was a great time and a fun course. A nice mix of short and long par 4s, a good set of par 5s, and 5 fantastic par 3s, with 3 over water. Great views of the Strip with a few holes using the Luxor pyramid as an aim point. The holes in the middle of the course are similar but there's some great holes in the mix.

Played on Friday, 10/30, with John_T and a couple of his co-workers. Price was $68 with the Arroyo/Siena card for a 9:30ish tee time. It's prime season in Vegas and the prices are going up.

The conditions have steadily improved over the last couple of months as they worked through re-seed without closing the course. Tees are staying Bermuda and starting to go dormant, with the staff out painting the boxes. The fairways have grown in nicely, with very little areas needing maintenance. The rough continues to grow and absolutely brutal, over 2 inches. You need to spot where you landed because you may not find your ball. The greens were smooth and medium/fast, just consistently good throughout. The bad spot for this course has always been the bunkers. Today, the par 3 3rd hole bunkers were flooded and the back left green side on 18 looked like a rock garden. Easily the worst part of the course.

Arroyo has an all grass driving range (included), just need to drive past the private club's range and 1st hole to get there. Keep the head on a swivel as you'll see plenty of range balls along the path to the range. 2 small putting greens, one by the clubhouse and the other by the 1st tee, both were consistent with the course. Drink cart was out and flying around, saw her 4 times during the round. There is a small bar/grill with limited seating for now. Carts have GPS to the center and very nice bluetooth speakers.

C-19: Practice greens have no flags and raised cups. Carts have a shower curtain divider, with a player option to roll it up, and single carts are available. Masks required indoors and worn by all staff.

Played on Friday, 10/23, with pisarski01, John_T, and Famed02, using a 4some certificate I won at the Mt Woodson GK event (thanks Royal Links and GK!).

One of my only complaints here has always been a need for an additional tee as the current tees go from 5800 to 6600 with nothing in between. Thanks to the starter, who made us a combo set that was about 6200.

Course is still in the same great shape as 2 weeks ago. Fairways were a little drier today, giving more of the firm, links feel. Fairways were almost lush. The fescue/high grass bordering the fairways is incredibly long and penal, almost no chance of finding your ball unless someone knows the exact spot. I had one land and sit up a little, when I popped my ball out, a second ball under it squirted out with it. Bunkers, ugh, tough enough being deep and small, but add a thin layer of sand and difficulty level goes up. Greens are outstanding. A few bumps on longer putts, but fast and will hold high or spinning shots.

Food and Beverage prices are surprisingly low for a "resort course."

Right now, Royal Links is in incredible conditions, and for locals, a great price through the end of October. Definitely a must play.

Played Friday, 10/16, with John_T and his dad and a friend.

Looking back, I've played here every 2 years. The last time was during a bachelor party weekend where the course was DEAD.

Happy to say those days have past. Tee boxes show some wear and tear, especially on the Par 3 holes. Fairways are good, just short of great. Rough ranges from 1-2 inches. Fairways are consistent with the change from bermuda to rye, but mostly full areas with a few thin areas. Greens are the highlights. I kind of hone in the unfixed ball marks, which are plenty, but for the most part, the greens are relatively smooth, and run on the fast side of fast/medium.

Overall, a nice course. Definitely worth the $56 we paid with the Arroyo/Siena card. Design wise, nothing really to talk about, I think it's sister course Arroyo is better, but Siena beats how I've thought about it the last couple of years. Not a destination course but if you can get a nice rate, it's worth it. Fun course and will be back in the rotation.
