I played yesterday in their Cinco De Mayo Member/Guest tournament. I and five friends were invited by a member whom I met about a month ago while playing at San Juan Hills. Cheryl was the organizer of the event. I was very excited to have this chance to play here. I’ve driven by it many times and it always looked so pretty.
From the moment we arrived, were made to feel very welcome. Our bags were loaded on our carts and then we spent some time on the small driving range and very hilly practice green. There was about an hour before tee time so we indulged in the complimentary margaritas, chips, salsa and empanadas. There was a taco bar outside for a small fee. Most of the members were there by this time. We had a great time just hanging out and meeting so many friendly people.
All guests were paired with members, which was very helpful on the course as there was no GPS on the carts (we did have ice chests and ball washers on board.) It was a shotgun start and we started on hole #5. As we took a wild ride shortcut across the course to our tee, we got a good look around. There is a creek that runs through most of the course, with steep hills all around.
There was a good variety of holes. There were a few shots over water and blind doglegs. There was a short par 4 on the back that took a good combination of accuracy and luck on the drive to hit the extremely narrow fairway with a big hill on the left sloping down to water on the right. There was a par 3 with a really crazy green. It was obvious that there would be some break toward the entrance road down below, but without the advice of our playing partners, we would never have realized that we had to aim our putts about 10 ft left of the pin! Another par 3 had a big sombrero painted on it. I was the first to land in it– about 12 inches from the pin.
The course conditions were good, not great. The fairways were mostly green, cut very short and a few had signs of recent punching. The tee boxes were neat and level. The greens were smooth but rolled a bit slower than I like. The bunkers were a little thin but the sand was good.
After the round we had a complimentary buffet dinner and drinks in the beautiful dining room. Afterwards, they announced all the winners. Well, it turned out that out of 66 players, only 2 hit that sombrero- I and one of my friends. Not a single member did lol. I got a very nice prize for that. It was a super fun day on a nice course. If you ever get a chance to play here, don’t hesitate. You’ll really enjoy it.» Close

I played Wolf Creek on 4-28-19. This was the highlight of my golf weekend with Bill, Kathy and Dixie. I had wanted to play here ever since I first saw a magazine photo of it over 10 years ago.
We were greeted in the parking lot and given our cart. After checking in and exploring the pro shop we had a quick breakfast and putted a few balls. The grass driving range was close by but there wasn’t time to warm up before heading out. The starter gave us a few hints and instructions and off we went.
The view from the first tee was just a small taste of the spectacular scenery that we would see throughout the day. So many times reality doesn’t meet the perfection of media photos, but in this case it exceeded it by a mile. The green turf and white sand contrasted against the red canyons was breathtaking. There was a lot of colorful desert flowers in bloom. From every direction, it was just gorgeous.
The conditions were just amazing. The fairways were lush with no flaws that I could see. The bunkers were a little thin but clean and groomed. The rough was consistent around the course and easy to hit from. The greens were firm and fast. There were a few unrepaired marks here and there but not enough to give a second thought to at the time. The tee boxes were all level with few divots.
I often marvel at how much work it must take to keep any golf course in good shape, but never as much as I did here. With the overall amount of space, all the elevation changes and areas of grass just tucked into little hidden curves, it’s just amazing. Huge kudos to the maintenance crew.
The course is tough, even from the very short red tees. Hole #4 with its bunker minefield was certainly interesting (I got caught in 3 of them). Although the forward tees often take out some of the challenge of forced carries, hole #7 still had all the thrill. I had a great drive right down to the creek and then made the very high uphill second shot over the canyon to the green. That hole was fun! Prior to playing I had seen a very intimidating photo of #14. Seeing it in person just got me so excited and determined to get it right!
The only thing I didn’t like was the carts. It was very hard to control the speed when going down the extremely steep hills. And there was no GPS. If there is ever a course where one would be helpful it’s Wolf Creek. There is no beverage cart on the course but the comfort station by holes 6 & 15 has a drive-thru window. I’d never seen that before.
Playing Wolf Creek was everything I’d hope it would be. Playing it was probably one of the most satisfying rounds I’ve had. It was totally worth the price and shooting 97 (!) was just the icing on the cake. I’m ready to play it again!» Close

Royal links was course #2 of my fun weekend with wsbell57, colmcd, and iluv2golflady. (Thank you, GK!).
It was easy to forget we were in the middle of Las Vegas as soon as we entered and saw the castle clubhouse and the wide open links style course that was such drastically different scenery from that of the previous day at Reflection Bay. Check in was fast and the starter was super friendly and helpful.
Conditions were pretty good, with a only a few thin and bare spots on the fairways. The tee boxes were a bit shaggy but level, so no problem. The greens were very firm and quick. A big part of the fun and potential frustration definitely comes from the 100+ pot bunkers on the course. Because there was no GPS on the carts to help locate the bunkers amid all the hills and dips, almost every shot left me with a few moments of suspense wondering if I had landed in one. By some enormous miracle, I was only in two of them and was able to get out of each in one shot.
The highlight of my round was on #15 when I holed out with a chip from the deep, dense, clumpy grass around the bunker. Overall I played really well, shooting 95 with 33 putts. I thoroughly enjoyed Royal Links and would definitely like to play here again.» Close

Played 4-26-19. This was the first of a three-round weekend with Gkr’s wsbell57, colmcd, and iluv2golflady. It was the first time for all of us to play Reflection Bay. We were very excited to play after reading so many great GK reviews. Our first impression when we drove by it was just “WOW.” The fairways that we could see from the street were a stunning shade of emerald green and we knew right then that we were in for a huge treat.
The clubhouse is a beautiful building with spectacular views of the bay. It was a good thing we arrived early because we took so many photos before we even got onto the golf course! We had a nice lunch in the restaurant and then a quick visit with Gkr kevbig before heading out to play.
The course conditions I can describe very simply- they are as close to perfect as I’ve ever seen from tee to green. The fairways are lush without a spot of brown anywhere. The tee boxes are tightly trimmed and level. The bunkers are sparkling white and the greens smooth and rolled medium fast. The course is as tough, though, as it is beautiful. I didn't play well and it beat me up pretty badly ...I just can’t wait to give it another try!» Close

Played a few days ago, on 4-21-19. This was my first time here. I chose this course for something new and to enjoy a little bit of a drive. I had a tee time of 11:50 but was able to go out right away when I arrived about an hour early so I didn’t sample the driving range or putting green.
I was looking forward to playing by myself so I could just take my time and relax- it all worked out great as there was no one behind me the entire round. This is a very enjoyable course. It’s an older, no frills course with a good variety of holes. Some are just straight forward with no surprises and others that really took some planning-my favorite kind. Other than the 150 yard rocks, I couldn’t find any markers so I was glad I purchased a yardage book (and thank you, HmtGolfGuy, for the handy hints).
The conditions were good. The fairways were a bit thin in spots but overall had adequate coverage. The tee boxes were shaggy with lots of dandelions but were level. The greens were great – smooth, medium fast and held shots well. There were lots of fun undulations. I found a couple of bunkers. They were ok, just dirt, but soft enough to hit from easily. The rough varied from a couple inches to bare dirt but I was playing well and only strayed from the fairways a few times.
I had to wait on the twosome in front of me on several holes, so I replayed a few and really just had a nice time. I finished in a bit under 4 hrs. I shot a 94 so it really was a great day! I’d love to play here again sometime.» Close
