Played the blues(72/71.0/123) today with Nickesquire, Dave of Chino and Bruce of Upland. We had clear skies and no wind. The range has raised the grass strip, and the mats strip is still at original elevation...well, the driver and 3W off the mats will impact the raised strip just 4-5 feet in front of you! I don't get it.
The tees have good coverage, aren't chewed and are level.
The fairways are healthy with good coverage and roll.
The rough is healthy and a factor for hitting from. The farther you are from the greens and fairways the deeper it is mowed.
The traps are way more dense and less groomed in fairways, than near greens.
The greens were holding most shots, rolled medium speeds, and were semi-soft underfoot.
Sierra Lakes is in good shape and I would return.» Close

Played here 7/16 for a 10:35 match with SR714. Very warm day, and a slight breeze. The place was busy, or it felt that way. There are 3 practice greens and the very busy range has mats. We were saddled up to our carts and sent to see the starter, who informed us that he's not sure if he will send us to the north course, instead of our reserved south course. Either way, we had to be on standby for 20 minutes at the starter's booth, before being let on to our reserved course. POP was slow, the entire round, 5.5 hours.
The white tees were level, but are drying out and becoming patchy. They were pretty chewed on par 3's.
The fairways are kikuyu and have fair average coverage. Mostly mowed down tight and playable, but still plenty of areas where it's patchy and dryer coverage. I quickly resorted to sweeping for dryer kikuyu conditions.
The rough was very patchy, differing depths(rarely deep) and turf health, so you never did know what lie you might find...best to avoid it.
Traps were denser, and still with a damp crust. I had no issues making a denser textbook sand shot. However, the density & lie could make you consider picking it clean instead.
Areas around green are lush and tighter kikuyu...challenging. I carry low bounce instruments for this very situation.
Greens were nice and hold shots with very little ball marks to repair. They were rolling medium speed with predictable break. A few had had repairs performed, but that was near fringes.
The winds came up from the west and were a factor. Waiting on every tee box, and for greens to clear made for a long round and match. No drink cart, but there is a fully stocked snack bar at #7 tee. With six par 5's at par 74, this course can be a challenge. Your driver will get plenty of use here.» Close

Played here with mild temps, blue skies & light winds. I met up with GK'r dconnally to put in our first match of cup 19. We warmed up on the range with mats. There are 3 putting greens and a chipping/sand green(1 putting green was closed & being looked after by greens staff). Check in was smooth and orderly. We were paired up with youngsters Vince and Cole, gentlemen golfers, and bringing the long ball.
Tees were mostly good, until the back 9, where about 5 of them were drying out and showing mixed bag of turf to terra coverage. Still, they are level and you can find your better 3points to launch from.
Fairways were good, healthy enough to provide good play from and trim enough for some generous roll out.
Rough was healthy and with a variety of challenging cuts(but never really penal). Only a few areas on the back 9 were noticebly patchy, but well into the second cut.
Traps(all) were the highlight, with nice texture and brightness, and showing signs of recent machined grooming. Dave mentioned recent renovations to traps, and it shows.
I found the greens to be favorable for judging speed a break, while rolling smooth and medium pace. They felt slightly softer underfoot, than the way they were holding and showing ball marks(firmer and with more release than expected). This didn't take long to adjust to.
The drink cart was absent today, but the snack bar was open, quick and freindly. The POP(4.5hrs) was steady, and I saw the Rangers patrolling out there about 5 times(very minimal waiting). A non-shot gun tournament had preceded us, but the pace and greens reflected their respect for golf. Rakes, ball washers and plenty of course restrooms. I had a good match with Dave, scored well and would return here again.» Close

Played the whites (5870/68.5/123) with fam members in pretty decent conditions. We had 10mph winds starting at 10:30 am, but had still air by 12:30pm. The place was all to ourselves. Tees were good and maintained. Fairways were pretty lush and helpful to rollout and layups. Rough was mowed both tight and deep at times, it just depends on where you go astry on each hole. Traps, no rakes anywhere, and they we're dense and needing just as many attempts at picking shots as well as exploding shots on to greens. Areas around greens, these are table-top greens needing approach discipline for chips and pitches...flops are your friend to hold close to pins. They we're mowed tight and similar to fringes, so shots could easily roll off greens. Approach shots from any distance, will rarely leave ball marks. Adapt and let the release occur with 5-10 yard finishes beyond the ball mark to end up with a better chance at one putting. The greens clearly ran faster and firmer as the heat and low humidity set in. I bogied #15 with a shot just left and on the fringe on the lower tier below the pin teir. I want another shot at this signature hole to either par or birdie it. They are building homes around both the south and North courses, but only the north is open right now. The snack bar close by 2pm...so make your tee times appropriately. Paid $41, so reccomended right now.» Close
