Played in the GK Plays with Tom & Mark. We had a great time. Course was in fantastic shape. Fairways lush with only an occasional thinner spot. Greens were very firm. Difficult to create enough stopping power and needed to play the roll out. Was in A LOT of sand on this day. I think I found a bunker on all but two holes on the front. They were in very good shape and were not difficult to get out of. This resort continues to be a pleasure and a great example of fantastic desert golf.

Played 4/29/22 3:30 Just got the round in before dark. Course is very good shape over all.
Fairways are a mixture of green & brown grass with mostly good to great coverage. Greens are mostly healed from aeration. A few still had sand residue visible and a couple still had a few punch holes that had not healed over yet. But mostly in good to great shape. Easy recommend.

Played 4/23/22 2:50 $35 walking. Course was in over all decent shape. Fairways a woolly mixture of green grass, dry grass & dirt, but found mostly good lies. Greens had full coverage. Mostly receptive. Ran at medium slow and a little bumpy. A fun Exec. course with a little bite to it if you stray off line. Easy walking course.

Played 4/15/22 2 pm $25 9 holes w/ cart. Course is coming out of winter dormant. Fairways a mix of green , tan and bare spots. They have good coverage & I found mostly decent grass. Greens very lush, receptive and SLOW. Fun little 9 hole "Muni" style course. No one out on this day and I played the 9 in about 1.5 hrs. They used to have two flags on each green. First 9 and second 9 pins, but they only had the one today. A short course and a fun place to go swing the clubs.

Played 4/9/22 2:10 POP a tad over 4 hrs. Course is coming out of its non-overseed winter. Fairways were mostly green and filling in. Many thin/bare spots around but found mostly good lies. Greens were in very good shape but VERY firm. Very hard to get any stoppage on shots but if you play the distance -10 yrds. you can often get better looks at the hole. Unless the pin is up front with many of the green complex's having mounds in front that can deflect short shots. I've really come to embrace and enjoy the challenges of the new design. If the greens can get a little more receptive, it will even be better. They were running medium fast and very true. It will be interesting to see if the upcoming aeration will make any difference. Traps were in great shape and the new sand makes getting out predictable. As mentioned in previous reviews. Short siding yourself on these green complexes will make your day adventurous. If the pin is near an edge, play for middle! The $85 Rack rate is a little steep, but unfortunately is becoming the average costs these days. It is very sad to see the tree gone on the 9th fairway. I was worried that it would be removed during the construction and was glad to see it remained for reopening. But sadly, it took a huge turn for the worse and died to many of the local's delight. I was not one of them. Look forward to post aeration and would recommend waiting.

Played 3-20-22 12:30. Course was pretty rough all around. Fairway grass was green, but patchy with many bare spots around. Rough was a very mixed bag from dirt to tall weeds.
Greens were in decent shape. Had very good coverage and receptive. Ran at about medium slow, but very bumpy from the seeding Poana. Traps were weed filled hard pan depressions. Tees were very chewed up and mostly uneven. Pace was a little above 4 hrs. Per usual the greens were the best part of the course. The rest was the worst I've ever seen it. It is still very playable and a good track. It often improves as spring rolls around and the grass grows a little better. If you can find a good deal, you can still have fun. A tough recommend at this time.

Played 12/5/21 7:50 with a 2 hr. frost delay, so a 9:50 tee off. Fairways are mostly dormant but with decent to good coverage. They were mostly on the "Cut tight" side, but still played fine with very good roll out. I encounter little to no issues. Greens are in very good to great shape. They were slightly softer than they have been. They rolled very true at a perfect pace IMO. The new greens have many contours to them and can be tricky if you're in the wrong spot. Traps were in great shape and consistent. The course is in really great winter playing shape overall.
Easy recommend. Thanks Johnny and Matt for setting this up, And a very big thanks to SVR for a great day and a tasty box lunch.

Played 11/29/21 10 am Shotgun GMoose deal. First time playing the course and it was a lot of fun. Numerous elevation changes and a few forced carries, but course is on the short side. Played with two of my sisters and I thought the Yellow tee boxes were a little unfair with the required carries. Don't let the shortness fool you. If you're not hitting it in control you will find plenty of trouble. Like Matt had written, read the tip sheet first time around.
The shorter sunlight day's have put the course in a somewhat "Soggy" condition. Good coverage in fairway's, with some areas thin and muddy. Lots of mud balls on this day. Greens were in overall great shape and receptive. Noticed a couple of them had small 2" dead spots scattered around, but they did not cause any issues. A really fun "Target" mountain golf course. It's a little amazing on how and where they built this course. Look forward to try it again.

Played 11/27/21 10:30 GMoose deal. Course is pretty flat and very typical parkland style. Some interesting holes w/ severe doglegs and very short par 4's and semi long 3's. Over all not a lot of undulations in the greens, but a few had strong tilts. Fairways were mostly green with a mix of winter dormant brown. Decent coverage. Some areas cut nice, others on the shaggy side.
Greens had full coverage and very soft. On the slow side and bumpy, but very decent to good.
Many tees crowned and uneven with mostly good coverage. Traps firm, but consistent. A fairly short course making it great for family fun and new players. Course was in decent to overall good shape and reasonably priced.

Played 10/27/21 11:30 POP a little over 4 hrs. $55
Beautiful fall day. Course had some very scenic views of mountains and fall foliage around Reno. Course is in the lower foothills with views of Mt. Rose. No real big elevation changes, but a fun routing with a few homes around but not too close.
They had just received about 7" of rain a couple days before. There were a few soggy areas around, but in overall decent shape. All of the bunkers in the front where filled completely with water. The normal sand looked very rocky. Fairways were mostly lush. Numerous bare or dead spots mixed through out all the Fairways, but rarely caused any issues. The good parts were really good. Dark green and lush with the ball sitting perfect. Many had slopes making the ball run sideways. Was told summer dryer conditions can make them tricky. Greens also had trouble spots, but mostly very good. Receptive and running at around a medium quick pace. A few big undulations, but mostly very tricky small ones that when mixed against the rolling terrain were very hard for me to read. Over all a fun course and worth a try.

Played 10-16-21 12:30 POP 4:20 Very busy day but it moved along fine. Course has dried a little since last time but still in over good to great shape. Greens mostly healed from punching. A few had visible holes still, but caused very few issues. Many greens had ball marks not healing. Greens still very firm and hard to stop shots. Fairways mostly green with good coverage, but noticeably drier from last time I played here. Still in very good shape with good roll out. Still a good recommend.

Played 10/1/21 3 pm. Last hole played mostly in the dark with glow balls. Course continues to be in over all very good shape. Fairways are green Bermuda with good roll. Ball sits very nicely. There are a few troubled spots mixed through out, but not many interfere with play. Greens were in decent shape. A few dead spots mixed through out along the edges. They were very soft and foot prints were deep making many putts bounce and move. I think they are in need of some aeration soon. Tees were in their typical Mt. Woodson "fair" shape. Even with the bumpy greens it's still a recommend.
