Recent reviews by RGM2525 & Nickesquire are spot on. Only difference I can report is that the rough was cut down to a more friendly depth of about 1". Enjoyed the course, the customer service, and my golfing compadres(Jim from the I.E., and Eric & Sam from Bakersfield). $35 for a mid-morning weekend round at Desert Falls, in less than 4.5 hours, is high value golf.

Made the decision to ride the Blacks (6720/72.1/127) with Nick and Tom using the GM voucher for high value golf. I brought my new driver that I recently shafted. Santa Rosa has plenty of 'driver' length holes when playing the tips at 6720 yards. I played here on the same voucher, weeks ago, and enjoyed myself.
Nick's review is spot on, so I will just point out a few differences I saw. The first and second cuts of rough were much more manicured and less penal now. There were fewer water logged low areas, found in some of the undulating rough features. I found more traps this time around, and therefore, have more appreciation for the condition of them. Golfers are clearly looking after the traps, as there are plenty of rakes.
I've played 5 different low desert courses this summer on GM/UP vouchers. All were good deals, and the courses were in nice shape. Nice to see that many courses competing for my business. Of these 5 so far, Cimarron had the best customer service. I still reccomend this course.» Close

Played the golds on 9/4/21 at 9:40, low humidity, slight breezes, starting temp about 92 & finishing at about 110. 3 pilgrims(myself, co-worker Gil and his brother Dan) made our trek down to meet Nickesquire, to take advantage of a hard to beat GM voucher. It wasn't hard to recruit fellow golfers when it works out to $25 each! Nice service, they met us in the lot to provide your cart at your vehicle, and give instructions to the pro shop and straight forward practice facilities. Check in was courteous and quick, they informed that there's no drink cart today, and to see the stocked snack bar for hydration and nutrition. They also reccomended that thier bloody mary's are great...that wasn't in the cards for me today, but, I will return with my brother-n-law sometime, and we will be the the judge of that ;-).
Nick's assessment is spot on, I'll just add a few observations. I certainly noticed & experienced the rough. It actually felt like the rough along fairways and around greens was increasingly deeper as the round progressed. The rough was certainly an invite to adjust your game to minimize dispersion in approach corridors and around green complexes. The fairways and aprons were nice to hit off of, but they were also soft and with less rollout and bounce than expected. There is decent GPS on carts, with the virtual pace marshall built in. Appreciated the many ice water dispensers throughout the course. Our GK cup 17, #1 finals seed, provided great caddie advice, and made the round more enjoyble. Recommended.

Had a good time here with the Guru group and a match with JGK to boot. Thanks Johnny. I like this type of layout, a semi-parkland style, with decent spacing between adjacent fairways. While not really considered tree lined, there's usually a carefully placed tree, or stands of trees, to challenge you when encountered. There's about 3 water holes on the East nine, and maybe one on the South nine. However, there's lots of use of tasteful lowland marsh/scub(no man's land) boundaries beyond the rough...balls go in, but they never come out.
The blue tees were level and trim, easy to choose a spot to tee it up.
The South nine fairway's were a treat to begin on, as they were plush and healthy bermuda. Fairways like these, are what I envision the tour pro's are used to. The East nine, while I was beginning to find more fairways by then, wasn't as plush in various areas.
The rough, from the first cut to the deepest, was gradual and needed, to help put the brakes on. It was pretty deep and penal the farther you are from the fairway. This is ok in my book since there aren't that many trees, and, it could keep you from rolling into the lowland boundaries.
The fairway traps are more shallow and slightly firmer than the greenside traps, but both have top notch sand and density. It's not uncommon for me to find greenside traps, just like I did on the East #8 par 3. But, it is uncommon for them to end up as a nice fried egg lie, that I actually recovered from. I love it.
The greens seemed to roll medium-fast for me and were mostly smooth. I liked them, even though I had quite a few 3 putts. I should have arrived earlier that day for more putting practice(all me, not the greens).
A few holes, not many, were mostly CPO, no problem, as it helps the course heal. Customer service was good. The weather was great. Too bad I won't be able to take another crack at Morgan Run with GK in mid September, because I'd like to. Reccomended.» Close

Played the blues today at 8:36, on an Underpar deal, netting each player to only $25 each. Good customer service with the bag drop, marshall and pro shop. We had nice weather, comfortable group spacing, and 4.5 POP.
Tee boxes in good shape, level and manicured. Fairways in good shape, and provide lush lies. Rough is manicured well for controlling the errant shots, and good lies for recovery. Only a few areas of rough were wet and mushy(well away from the farways and green complexes). Traps in real good shape and lots of rakes(love it). Greens were in good shape, firm, and rolling medium-fast. They recieved shots well, while only needing minimal ball-mark tending.
No drink cart out today. Ball washers are present and working. Ice water thermos and cups present on each 9. All grass range and practice greens in good shape and convienently close to proshop. New management is still in process of opening the snack bar(not open yet, and explains no drink cart). High value golf, reccomended.» Close
