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.

Played on Monday, 10/12. Last minute decision and walked into the pro shop at 12:20 and on the 1st tee at 12:35 on a very busy and beautiful afternoon. The 4some on the 1st tee allowed me to tee off ahead and caught the next 4some on 3, who did not let me pass as they played the tips and looked for balls forever. I skipped ahead from 4 to 7 then swung back and played 5/6 after 14, and finished just over 3 hours.

Course is in phenomenal shape, just after reseeding and off CPO. Fairways are still very wet with a mud ball every drive and no roll out. Rough is growing and is just about 2 inches. Greens are softer than normal and a bit slower than usual, but smooth.

It's now prime season in Vegas and prices and conditions are matching up well. I consider Mountain my "home course" and it was great being back out.

Played Sunday, 10/11, with a local group in an 8 club challenge, walking from the 5500 yard tees (black), for $40 on a busy morning.

Course is in good, not great, shape. I'm guessing the black tees do not get a lot of play and the boxes show they don't get a lot of attention. Definitely needed to be cut but the other boxes did look well taken care of. Fairways were firm, with plenty of good lies, and the Bermuda is starting to show signs of going dormant. The rough is non existent which results in the ball running into overgrown areas. The green side bunker I found was hard packed and I just hit a normal chip out of it. Greens were in good shape, but running slower than they looked.

Course has a an all grass driving range, a bunker/chipping area, and a large practice green with elevation changes.

Wildhorse has a long history, one of the 1st courses in the Vegas Valley (1958), 6 name changes, and hosted a PGA Tour event in the 70s. It has an old school feel, including a 2nd story clubhouse bar/grill with patio over looking the course. Bar/grill prices are lower than typical courses. It's an Audubon Sanctuary and is not your typical Vegas course. The course is owned by the city of Henderson and while not a destination, it fills the a niche for locals.

C19: single rider carts (w/GPS), no rakes, NO NOODLES!(but no touching the flag) Ball actually hits the bottom of the cup.

Played on Saturday, 10/10, joining Matt, John, and Larry, and using Matt's 4some certificate from a GK event. Started right at 12:40, and finished in about 4:15 with some early waiting. Staff was great from bag drop, check in, bar/grill and drink cart. The cart staff quickly cleaned and washed a couple of carts so we could load and hit the range.

Practice area: Large grass range (included) and a large putting green next to the 1st tee.

To echo Matt, the course was in the best shape I've seen in the handful of times I've played. Fairways were lush, but still had some roll to them. The wild grass lining the fairways is extremely long and thick, if you don't see where the ball goes in you have no chance of finding it. Bunkers, there's 108 of them and you need to be able to get it up fast to get it out. The greens were fast and firm, but held high shots into them.

I always have a great time at Royal Links, especially when it gets firm and fast. The castle motif absolutely fits the course and is a cool little clubhouse. The back patio should be expanded, it was cool to sit out there and watch groups play 4 different holes while enjoying a drink. My only critique is I think they need another tee box option from 6200ish, as it goes from 5800 to 6600. For locals, incredible pricing for the month of October.

Played on Sunday, 9/27, joining Alex326, DeepSea14, and Todd. Dropped the bag and checked in, cart was ready when I was done.

Course absolutely lived up to, if not exceeded my expectations. From a conditions perspective, it was in fantastic shape. Lush fairways. Level tees. Smooth, challenging greens running a bit close to fast. On the scenery side, oh my gawd, it's incredible. Tree lined fairways which make you seem away from everywhere, elevation changes throughout every hole, wildlife, and huge boulders that are definitely in play.

Definitely a must play in the area, even at the $150 price tag (comparable to area courses though).

My 2nd time here for the Pisarski "family" get-together, joining 12 other GKers and friends. Just like last year, the staff was excellent and very accommodating to us, having us go out as 2 4s and a 5. Paid $115 which included a free replay, so excellent price for 36 here. Bar/Grill opened about 30 minutes before 1st tee, and had some great food to enjoy outside overlooking the 18th green.

Huge all grass driving range included, with a large putting green and chipping area.

Course was in excellent shape. Level tee boxes, lush wide fairways, about 2 inches of rough, and pretty smooth greens (outside the before mentioned 16th green). Overall it played a little firm and fast.

C-19: 3 people in pro shop, they allowed us to pair up (I didn't ask about single carts), pool noodles, no rakes.

I think I like early fall Grizzly more than Spring Grizzly. Course was drier and played faster/firmer. Easily my 2nd favorite course ever. Great weekend getaway if you throw in a cabin. Fantastic views and some wildlife running around.

Started the Pisarski "Family" trip with an early Friday afternoon round at the Incline Village Mountain Course. The short Par 58 course (14 par 3s, 4 par 4s) was an excellent warm up/start to to the weekend. Paid $55, which was at least half of what the surrounding "big" courses are currently charging. Staff was incredibly friendly and great. Easy check in, grab a cart key and off to putt while waiting for the starter to let you go.

Course was in good condition. Tees had some damage. Fairways were nice. Greens were pretty smooth (outside of leaves and seeds) and running more on the medium side of medium/fast.

C-19: they allowed us to pair up in carts, but mandated separation in the clubhouse. Pool noodles, no rakes, no holes in the practice green, and 15 minute tee times.

Course was really fun and provided a good test off the tee or second shots on the par 4s. Mix in the higher elevation (around 7000), there are basically no shots without an elevation change. You're either hitting up or down, but never level. It's a good break and a fun course.

Played Sunday, 9/20, high school buddy's group had an opening for a 4th. Course was busy but we got out just before the Men's Club and finished in just over 3.5 hours.

Course is in beautiful shape. Tee boxes are crowned just a bit on the edges, but lots of flat areas. Fairways are lush, but a handful have some thin areas a couple GUR. Rough is cut about 1-2 inches, I wish it was a bit longer to hold up the ball from rolling down into the ditch (talking some 30-40 yards of roll in some areas). The greens are fantastic. The paspalum looks lush and thick, but rolls smooth and medium/fast, picking up speed as the day went along and they started to dry. When wet, the paspalum just kills the ball, making low runners just die.

Yes, it's a muni, but it's a well taken care of muni in excellent shape. Incredible price for locals, $32 weekday, $39 weekend. All grass range and large putting green. Also has a short game area.

C-19: must pay online, no paying at the course; single rider carts, walking allowed (same price); bar/grill area closed (forgot to ask if they were opening since NV restrictions are lifted tomorrow), but drink cart is out and about.

Played Friday, 9/19, with John_T and his dad. 9:30ish tee time. $65 with Arroyo/Siena card.

Course is improving from 2 weeks ago. Rough is absolutely gnarly, long, almost wrist breaking. Fairways are showing improvements but there are still spots on a handful of holes that need some extra attention to get the new grass to come in. The greens are in exceptional shape and showing no signs of the aeration 3 weeks ago. They were rolling smooth and medium-fast.

C-19: Shared carts are preferred and have a plastic curtain divider, but single carts are available on request. Masks indoors. No rakes but divot bottles and coolers on carts. Restaurant is open, all bars will be open starting Monday morning.

Arroyo is a fun course with a nice mix of risk/reward. Most holes are straight forward with no hidden hazards.

Played on Labor Day Monday, 9/7, with a 10:30ish tee time, paid $55 thanks to a friend with a PACC card, and finished about in about 3:30, incredible pace here. Very smokey and breezy today.

Covid stuff: single rider carts, no rakes, probably the shortest noodles I've seen, no towels, and they are rotating the courses/practice areas with only 2 open at a time due to the single rider restrictions. Today, the Wolf practice area was open. All grass driving range (included with fee) and large putting green area. Restaurant is open, along with the snack bars, and the drink cart was out.

The course was in incredible shape. Some of the tee boxes were a bit shaggy, and soft, but no divot damage. Fairways were lush, with some areas starting to lighten in color, but no thin/dirt areas. Rough was up in some areas, around 2 inches, and thick. The greens were just phenomenal. Able to hold shots, but fast and slick.

The Paiute courses are always in great shape. Snow is my favorite, just because Wolf is so challenging it's tough for an "everyday" course. When the wind shows up, it definitely adds to the challenge.

Played Saturday, 9/5, on a very busy holiday weekend, with John_t and a couple of "once a year golfer" buddies. Teed off just after 10, our buddies played a 2 man scramble while we played our own, and finished just over 4 hours, which is normal here pre-covid.

Covid stuff: masks inside, short noodle in the hole (go ahead and giggle), AND NEW TO ARROYO, a plastic shield dividing the carts to allow 2 riders at a time. You can roll it up if you want, it's basically top to bottom and held together with bungee cords.

So Arroyo isn't closing for "re-seeding," but there is plenty of punch marks in the fairways as they seed as they go. Rough is a bit nasty, about 2 inches in most places. Bunkers have always been the weak spot here, they're a bit firm and thin, and no rakes. Greens were punched 5 days ago, and they show it for the most part. A bit slower than normal here.

Give it a few weeks and should be in great shape with great weather. Very fun Arnold Palmer design course. Grass driving range, but very small putting green by the clubhouse and very very small green by the 1st tee. Decent prices for food/drink, and had the drink cart about 3 times, with 2 on the back after a driver change.
