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.» Close

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.» Close

I was able to sneak out for an midday round on the home course with John_T, teeing off earlier than our 12:20 tee time. We paid $42 with the OB Sports card. The best news, THEY HAVE NEW CARTS! Plush seats, a cool 4 cup center piece with a place for your phone, USB chargers, and a new GPS system with distance to front, center, and back. Drink cart was around a couple of times on a rather mild for summer day. Pace was a bit under 4 hours after passing an apparent beginner playing lesson on 2 and a 4some on 4 (where John_t nearly had a hole in one in the high pressure "wave through" situation, we did finish 1 under for the hole).
Course is in the early prep for re-seeding, so dry, firm fairways, and the rough cut down to barely longer than fairways. Bunkers appeared to be the same, we didn't hit one all day. Greens were pretty nice. A bit softer than I would think in the middle of the day, and a bit slower than they looked, but pretty smooth and consistent.
I will probably avoid here for the next month as they close for re-seed next week and will be cart path for about 3 weeks after, but today was nice. Tee shots had some extra roll,and I was able to do some crazy low running chips from over 150 out.» Close

I had an opportunity to join a good friend for a round here on Friday, 8/28, with an early tee time. We were joined by another member for an awesome round. Nice relaxing pace and finished way too early in 3.5 hours.
Started the day at the huge all grass driving range with Titleist practice balls. They have enough space to move the stations every day for 2 weeks before they repeat. Practice green showed signs of aeration with a sandy topping on it.
The club owned carts come with GPS to that day's hole location, big comfy seats, dual coolers, and a bunker rake (I don't know if this a C19 adjustment and forgot to ask). There's an outdoor snack bar for before round and prior to the back 9 refreshments. Post round, enjoyed the view overlooking the course and Lake Las Vegas in the distance.
The course is a Jack Nicklaus Signature course with a very intimidating scorecard. It tips out at 6903 yards (74.1/149). We played the whites, which are 6175 yards, 70.3 rating, and an eye opening 141 slope. Visually, the course is spectacular and not fear inducing (for the most part). Tee boxes level with little to no divots. The mostly wide fairways are lush and carpet like. The rough and bunkers are where this course has teeth. The fairway bunkers are deep, but with firm sand. Greenside bunkers are also deep, the sand this morning was a little firm due to watering, but all are well manicured. The rough is sneaky long, up to 3-4 inches in spots. You definitely need to pin point where your tee shot went to have a chance of finding it. Almost any shot not on the fairway required a huge decision to "go for it" or just pitch it forward and recover. The greens were incredible. I was told they were punched 10 days ago, but showed no signs, except for some light sanding on a few greens. They were running at a perfect medium-fast pace, I could see them making the greens faster and the undulating triple tier become a roller coaster of fun.
It was everything I expected of this course. Some fantastic views (17th tee box is incredible), elevation changes, and about 7 holes with water in play. The tee shots on the closing holes of 16-18 are the most intimidating shots I've ever faced. All 3 are huge carries over canyons that look farther than they are.
It's tough to compare a private course to a public access one, so I will judge it against the other private courses I've played in the Vegas area (Las Vegas CC and DragonRidge). It is absolutely the best of the 3 overall.» Close

Played in the GK Plays event on Sunday, 8/16. Awesome time with Johnny, Tim, and Jerry.
Definitely can't let the scorecard lull you into a false sense of security. Sure it's 5800ish from the tips, but that 134 slope may be low. The course is very challenging as it's not just Driver and chase, positioning and strategy definitely came into play.
Course was in pretty good shape. Fairways looked tight, with some browning, but definitely not rock hard. Very giving and thicker than it looks (huge fan of these types of fairways). Fairway rough was minimum, 1-2 inches, with thicker kikuyu around the greens. Green side bunkers are pretty deep with some thick, heavy sand. I thought the greens were great. Some unfixed ball marks but mostly smooth and a good almost fast pace.
A fun course but some local knowledge really helps. Staff was great. Nice patio area and a very nice selection of San Diego's finest craft beers on tap and cans.» Close
