Played on Sunday, 5/2, with the Pisarski group. This should be the example of "don't judge a book by it's cover." After parking in the large lot and walking up the hill pass the maintenance shed, you're greeted by an underwhelming clubhouse. It has a nice patio but the interior feels a bit dated, with a small pro shop and snack bar. No outside staff waiting at the carts, just grab and go. Then you turn the corner and met with a huge driving range (mats and grass) and a nice size putting green.
Course was in pretty good shape as it is starting to heat up. Level tee boxes, some a bit hard to place a tee. Fairways were lush with very little amount of thin or bare areas. Rough gradually faded from 2 inches to the desert surroundings. Bunkers were a bit mixed, I was in a few decent ones, and a few thin ones. Greens were outstanding. Firm and way faster than they looked. I don't think I saw a ballmark all day.
At $30, it was an absolute steal. This place is all golf with no frills attached. Course design is really nice, with a mix of some risk/reward short par 4s, long par 5s, and decent par 3s. Both the front and back 9s have a loop through the canyons on the other side of the 95, and both have views of the river. It reminded me of courses in Mesquite. Some tips: don't trust Google Maps/Waze, it takes you past the entrance, just read the signs. Snakes are abundant, with a rattler on the cart path after the 6th tee box that made Gregholla actually holla.» Close

Out at Royal Links on 4/30, with John_T, his dad, and another buddy, using the 4some certificate from a GK Event. Thanks Royal Links for the GK support and Johnny for the great prizes.
With a 11:30 tee time, we started the day with a before round meal at Stymies bar/grill. The bloody mary was sneaky spicy, one of my favorites, and the meal was great. Prices are consistent or even lower to other Vegas resort courses. During the round, drink cart was around about 3 times, plus caught her after 9 as she re-stocked. Enjoyed a nice drink after the round back in Stymies. Starter gave us a combo routing, playing the top 4 handicap holes from the ruby tees while playing gold on the others, cutting about 300 yards off, and a perfect 6300ish vs 5900 (ruby) or 6600 (gold).
Course was in a bit better condition than a couple months ago. The dormant Bermuda fairways and rough are growing in, and are not quite lush but pretty good. Tee boxes are nice and level. The downsides were the bunkers and greens. Bunkers were a bit thin, which is difficult since they are so deep and steep faced. Greens appeared to have been punched in the last two weeks. Still some visible holes, and some bumps, but running faster than freshly aerated. They fixed the issues with the holes by adding a plastic liner above the cups to prevent the edges from collapsing. We didn't get any of those pesky "roll backs" from the edge all day.
With news of the sale of the course falling through, I'm hoping to see the course come back to it's normally great conditions. This course is an absolute butt kicker, with a great variety of holes. They have cut down the gorse-like edges some, making it a bit easier to find and hit, but not much. Definitely a challenge and worth the trip.» Close

Played 4/24, as part of the Vegas Golf Network tournament with tee times starting around 9:15. Tournament wise, our carts were set apart and if you used the bag drop, they were all ready to go by the time you walked down. Carts came with 2 bottles of water and GPS with distance to the hole (vs center of green). Currently, only the Wolf practice area was open as they repair from the KFT stop last week.
Course is in the condition that lives up to Paiute's reputation. There were some signs of aeration on a couple of tee boxes and a few fairways, but overall it was in phenomenal shape. Level tee boxes with little amount of damage, even on the par 3s. Fairways were lush, and seemed a bit longer than normal. Rough was about 2 inches or so, just enough to penalize you for missing the fairway. The bunkers were full of some slightly heavy sand, incredible they can keep any for the amount of wind here. Greens were aerated less than 3 weeks ago and a few guys took a scouting trip yesterday to find some shaggy slow greens. SURPRISE! Greens had a fresh cut and roll this morning and were rolling smooth and almost fast. Considering the 40 mph gusts today, they were just long enough to not have the ball move while stopped.
Paiute is always my 1st recommendation for Vegas golf, just class from start to finish. Excellent courses. Great food and beverage areas with less than typical golf course prices. They are still running single rider carts and closed the bar area (table service only), but no noods in the cups and rakes are back. We pulled flags all day.» Close

Played the last 2 Fridays (4/16 6:30am and 4/23 9:10am) with similar conditions. One of the knocks about Arroyo is it's status as little sister to the private Red Rock Country Club (Mountain Course), which is next door. The courses share a 2 sided, all grass, full size range, however, Arroyo customers have to drive pass the private side and along a path dividing the range and the private's 1st hole. Your head needs to be on a swivel and the windshield up as there's a chance of a ball coming from 3 directions. The private members will definitely let you know if you take a wrong turn and end up at their range or practice green. Another knock is the putting green. They recently removed the green by the 1st tee, leaving only the 1 by pro shop/grill. That green is really small (think small backyard green), flat, and with like 4 holes. The last is some of the long drives between holes. The 1st tee is half a mile from the clubhouse, which you never pass during the round. After the 6th, you head back, but there's about 5 long drives between green and next tees.
The course conditions have been consistently good to great for the past year. The fairways are green, lush, with no bare areas. The rough is thick and penal, and not easy to hit out. The greens were a bit slower than usual last week, and showed some signs of recent aeration, however, yesterday, they were back up to their almost fast speed. Tee boxes are typical for a course with lots of play: the par 3s are a bit beat up but all the others are really good. My biggest criticism of Arroyo is the bunkers. They may be the worst bunkers in Vegas. Thin, hard packed dirt with lots of rocks. Yesterday, I hit a bunker shot on 13 that pulled up the liner.
Overall, I really like Arroyo. There's some fun holes, with some reachable par 5s if you hit good drives and some short par 4s that require precision that is paid off if you hit a great drive over clubbing down. Supposedly, there's a bunker renovation on the horizon this summer. We will see.» Close

Played Sunday, 3/28, as part of the monthly Vegas Golf Network tournament. The rumors of RL's demise have been greatly exaggerated. While they are listed for sale, rumors now have it open until the end of the year, for various reasons.
Course has a very nice all grass driving range. The large putting green near the 1st tee has some huge breaks and currently is set up with those posts with a cup size collar instead of holes.
Customer service was great. Friendly starter gives a "next up" warning and some course advise. Small bar and grill area but a nice patio set-up overlooking holes 7, 9, and 18. Drink cart was around often, once seeing her within 3 holes. Food and beverage prices are decent for a resort course.
Course conditions seem to be in a state of flux. Fairways are firm with some run and the dormant Bermuda is starting to come back. The bunkers are a bit firm and difficult, just so hard to keep them real sandy with the amount of wind through the area. Greens were a little worn. Firm, no ball marks, but some scuff marks. The holes were showing signs of not being moved as the edges were frayed and worn. The rough and outlying areas have been cut down from it's usually knee high length.
Despite it's difficulty, I always have a good time playing here. I'm hoping the spring brings it's usually great conditions back.» Close
