On Friday 6/28, we played here for the first time. I called the pro shop when we arrived at the hotel to check on availability and non resident rates. Spoke with Chris who was friendly and answered all my questions.
We headed over to the course for a late afternoon round , figuring we’d get in at least 12 or so holes, since we were starting after 4:15 pm. Chris got us going upon our arrival and was just as friendly in person as he was on the phone. He called and had their cart person bring up a cart for us. Kai arrived in moments, also great with customer service and friendliness. Got us on our way quickly.
The course was in good shape, despite the heat. Even though the course winds through neighborhoods, most of the fairways allowed you to not be precise with your tee shots. If you happened to miss, the rough was playable. The greens were only good and not great because they apparently have a lot of people play this course who do not understand how to repair a ball mark! ??
Even though it was hot and breezy, which probably kept some people away, I was still amazed that we finished the round in under 3 1/2 hrs! As we drove the cart back, Kai was waiting to assist us in unloading, making sure we left nothing on the cart. He was very engaging and wanted to be sure we had a good time. We told him we had a great time, but he should suggest to management that they change the start time of their sprinklers by 45 minutes to an hour this time of year, as the last coup of holes - around the 7:30 pm. timeframe, we had to dodge them to finish, and there was still a good amount of daylight left.
Definitely worth a visit!!
Enjoyed another great day @ Reflection Bay today. We were fortunate in the early part of the day to have cloud cover to keep the temp enjoyable.
The course itself was in really good shape overall. Minor aeration areas, but they didn’t really affect play. Greens were in great shape. Sand is very playable. There's a great mixture of fairway widths and the course is not the stereo-typical ‘resort course’. It’s by no means easy, but it’s not punishing either - if you ‘know your own strength’ ;).
Reflection Bay is a very eye- pleasing stroll and the staff there are top notch and great with customer service. This is becoming one of our necessary stops whenever we are in the Vegas area!
Give it a try! I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!!
We arrived in Vegas for Coyote Springs tomorrow (Sat 6/16/18), earlier than planned so we stopped by Primm to play 9 holes for a warm up. Was a little surprised when we pulled in shortly after 2 pm and found only a handful of cars.

Two courses here, so we decided on The Lakes and we were not disappointed! The course was in great shape! The wind made it a little more challenging (US Open Thursday type, but it played well. As long as you were paying attention, the water rarely presented a problem. Sand traps were playable as was the rough. If you weren’t accurately in the middle of the fairway on your drive, we were presented with some interesting lays. Most the fairways, and greens for that matter, had some undulations one way or another. The greens seemed to roll pretty true. Overall a fun time - can’t wait to get back again and play both courses.
We played the Catalina Course at the Omni Tucson National on Saturday 02/10/18 for The Bridge the Gap Charity Golf Tourney. What a great time we had. I’m not sure that I’ve played on a finer maintained course! The course itself was quite challenging, with some rolling and various width fairways, water on several holes, elevation changes and undulating greens. It plays well to it’s slope. For the conditions, the fairways were literally like carpet! The greens were well manicured. The only negative I could take away from the whole experience was that the bunkers were too wet, but since we were playing a best ball tourney, we never actually got to hit out of it!??.

We had such fun that we will be planning a return trip soon! It’s not a cheap course, but I feel it is definitely worth your attention if you find yourself in Tucson!!
Played Friday 11/10/17. Course was in very good shape and bunkers were fairly recently redone. Greens were challenging to read, but in good shape! Staff friendly and great grill! Definitely will play again when in the area!!!
Played 11/12/17, about 2 weeks after aerification. Greens in pretty good shape but fast. Pin placements were challenging. Course overall in very good shape. Be prepared for many bunkers, but the sand is good. We chose to use a forecaddy and we felt it was well worth it! Ask for Will - he did a great job and had great knowledge of course. Entire staff, from Pro Shop to Snack Shop, were great at customer service!! Looking forward to a return visit!
Add me to the list of many GKers that played Rams Hill Golf Club Sunday, 12/11. Echoing many, the course was in fantastic shape, I only wish my driving was too! ?? My first time there, it was a diamond in the desert, and we were blessed with a great day - very little wind, mid 70's, and barely a cloud in the sky!

As for the course itself, the fairways were lush, and for the most part fairly roomy, although a few were quite challenging with hills and tilts. The greens were in great shape, but sometimes tough as your ball could land and stick sometimes, and hit and roll off the back side on others. And then there were a couple that had some vicious undulations, causing you to scratch your head while muttering an expletive as your ball rolled and rolled away from the hole. Most the sand traps were very playable. Try to stay out of the rough, as many places could halfway swallow your ball. An added unusual bonus was that on a couple holes you even got to enjoy the sound of the water of their small stream running over the rocks! For longer hitters, there were even a couple holes that challenged you to 'go for it', but not without the 'risk/reward' thought. The course overall was pretty good in length and with some doglegs, fairway sand and water, it made for a fun and challenging day, with the final thought of 'I can't wait to play here again!'

All the staff we ran into were extremely friendly and tried to be sure we were enjoying ourselves. We actually started the day there early with breakfast on the patio - very good service and food, and both of those ideas held throughout the day. Even one of the owners came by while we gathered on the patio after our rounds and thanked the group for visiting! You don't have that happen too often! A class location!!
Playing Ram's Hill golf course on Sunday with the Greenskeeper group, we got to town early and played at Borrego Springs Resort on Saturday. We couldn't have had a nicer day, low 70's, little to no wind, and amazingly only a few people playing, which amazed me!

The course overall is in really good shape, as it's been only a little more than a month since they re-opened after re-seeding. An enjoyable round although challenging! You have to be accurate on several holes, as some parts of the fairways are barely 20 yds wide. Water on a few holes adds to the challenge. The sand traps are playable, as is the rough. Try to not go too far left or right or you'll find yourself in the desert and not the easiest of lies. The greens were fairly firm but your ball would hold. Very good speed, not too fast. Overall, a great value for the$$!
On Sunday, Nov. 13th, the Greenskeeper group got a chance to play at the Paiute Golf Resort-Snow Mountain! First, we were lucky and blessed with one of the best days you could ask for weather-wise when golfing in Northern Las Vegas area - very little wind that dwindled to negligible by the 4th hole; not a cloud in the sky; and somewhere in the high 70's - low 80's.

I will be the first to say that when I heard these courses (there are actually 3 at this resort, Snow Mountain, Sun Mountain and Wolf) were designed by Pete Dye, I was ready to run away and spend the rest of the day in a casino. Me and 'Pete' do not get along, LOL. He's sadistic on most days! You always know when you've played one of his courses - you're usually pretty beat up and several balls lighter in your bag ??.

Now for the reality of the day - I really enjoyed Snow Mountain! It was a challenging course yet not punishing. The course overall was in really good shape. As with most courses, staying out of the desert terrain and on the fairways are key. There were the typical Dye twists of odd shaped and undulating fairways mixed with water and desert, but if you were smart, you could avoid most problems. There were even a couple nice risk/reward holes, if you dared. The only downside was the bunkers needed some work (or new sand) and a couple of greens seemed to break opposite of what you'd expect. Otherwise, I now look forward to returning to see what the other two courses have in store, as this Pete Dye course was actually fun!
TPC Las Vegas was our destination on Saturday Nov. 12th. I really enjoyed our day! First, right from the start, their staff is definitely customer service goal oriented! From the front bag attendant (whose name I forget, my fault), to Jordan in the Pro Shop, even Matt, the Pro who gave us some pointers understanding using the apex to improve putting. Everybody we came in contact with made sure we were enjoying our visit.

The course itself was in great shape and challenging. Most of the fairways had something to make you stop and think. The rough was challengingly long & lush, but not impossible- just try to stay out of the desert areas! I feel the tees were set up nicely and many of the tees gave a good separation from white to red tees. The greens were also quite interesting, but fun and challenging. I don't think there was flat green out there but the undulations could be read without too much work. After a hole or two, you were able to get the speed close to what you needed. I am looking forward to a return visit to TPC Las Vegas on our next visit to L.V.!
La Purisima is good challenging course. If you are fairly accurate, you could be well rewarded. It has good distance from the white tees and offers challenges for all levels. Don't read anything into the breaks on the greens and don't forget to adjust for the wind. We had a great time Sunday, the 17th with the GK group, our 2nd outing. Come out and enjoy the next one! And not wanting to leave out this note - all the staff at La Purisima were great, wherever you encountered them- especially the Pro Shop and the Lounge.
