I enjoy playing new courses as much as possible and will golf anywhere. I like the challenge of tough courses, meeting new people, sunsets, holding hands, long walks on the beach...

I played Friday afternoon, riding as a single, 2:15 tee time. No wind at all on this day; it is a factor as it does get windy here. I paired myself up with another single at Tee 1 and we played at a good pace until hitting a backup on Hole 3. One group of three let up pass, but the real backup was three groups ahead of those guys there was a fivesome of local yahoos dragging ass. Amazingly, I was not at all upset with the situation. My playing partner called the starter and we ran some ideas around. The course was just crowded and skipping ahead wasn't an option. We got our change to pass the fivesome at Hole 14 tee. Overall POP was 3:45.
Overall course conditions were lush. The weather is getting hotter and they are watering a lot. There were some overly wet areas and those were not clearly marked, so there was some cart damage in a couple of spots. However, it was minor.
Greens: The ran fast and smooth.
Fairways and rough: Good rollout and great turf under my ball in almost all cases. Some areas of rough were very lush around the back of some greens.
Tees: We played the blue tees and all were level with the exception of Hole 7 which was slightly tilted to the left side.
Sand: All the bunkers appeared to have a nice layer of white sand. I was in three, and had no trouble hitting out.
Great local hangout for a relaxed round of golf. The starter is very relaxed about afternoon golf times. If it is not busy, you could just go. The bar and restaurant seem very busy so that is usually a good sign of decent food/service. They have a great selection of beers on tap as well. It looks like I'm going to be coming back here more often as the days get longer.» Close

I played today in the SCGA event, sponsored by Woodford Reserve. We did receive a comp drink in the morning and there was another Woodford cocktail later at the turn for $5; Not bad.
I have always liked this course. I find it exciting and difficult. Many of the holes proceed up and down a mountainous/canyon terrain and it is like an adventure because of all the blind shots.
The course is in decent winter condition: dormant Bermuda fairways and a nicely overseeded rough that was mowed to a manageable 1"-2". The fairways had plenty of root zone although they were mowed very tight allowing for a lot of run out on most drives.
The bentgrass greens were great: fast, smooth, and very few ball marks to fix. It was difficult to hold shots from well off the green if you don't generate a lot of spin or come in with a high pitch. There were some difficult pin positions today and the greens are mostly large and undulating with all kinds of breaks.
Tee boxes were nice; we played the Silver (Medal) tees and it was plenty of golf at 6440 yards and a 72.1 rating/130 slope. Lots of forced carries over junk or valleys to the fairways. Many of the approach shots were to elevated greens.
Bunker sand was good. It was a nice, light colored, fine grain sand that was great to hit from, except for the greenside bunker at Hole 4, which was a little wet.
I arrived early enough to take advantage of the great practice area. Lots of room on the driving range, pyramids of balls, a sand/chipping green, and a large practice putting green.
Our group had a good time. It was nice to take a day off of work and it was an especially nice day weather wise. Being so close to home, I would say it was worth the $95.» Close

Thanks to Johnny for the Guru round. Nice country club set in a very ritzy neighborhood surrounded by agricultural land. The clubhouse and pro shop were really nice. The course and personnel were all great: super friendly and professional. Members seemed nice as well. The practice area is small, but fun with an elevated range and ridiculously fast ppg. The greens on course were as fast.
Greens were very nice and very fast. Play way more break. If your speed is good you could drop some putts.
Fairways were very good. Looked like dormant Bermuda with dye or they might have been recently fertilized. Cut tight and expect lots of roll. There were many undulations and elevation changes, thankfully mostly downhill, making it harder to spot your ball from the cart path.
Rough was dormant Bermuda. It was varied from deep and thick to thin and bare in a few spots under the trees.
Bunkers were all very nice. Good amounts w light, soft sand.
Tees were mostly good. We played the white tees. A few were partially sanded and some of the par 3’s were a little beat up. Mostly good and fairly level considering it’s a very hilly course.
If you get a chance to play here, go for it.» Close

I played in the GK event yesterday. This is one of my favorite courses and I have some fond memories playing here. It has a great vibe and a really cool western/mining theme to it. It kind of reminds me of the old Robinson Ranch here in Santa Clarita, only better. I had played here many times in the past; probably more than 10 years ago. It's still good.
Greens were rolling fast and true. To me, they seemed a little on the firm side, but my ball striking is not super crisp so it's most likely just me.
Fairways and rough were very nice. It has that cool winter contrast of overseeded fairways and dormant Bermuda rough. The rough had enough root zone and length to keep slightly errant shots in play for the most part. My problem was I could not keep many of my shots straight enough to do that.
Bunkers had some small pebbles in them, similar to Mojave Resort but not as bad. There was nice sand in the two bunkers at Hole 16, but that's it as far as I noticed. Still, not too bad to hit from.
Tees boxes were very nice. We played the Silver tees at about 6091 yards. It was a good distance given the extreme elevation changes and frequent forced carries.
The front nine plays down canyon toward the Colorado River, then back up to the clubhouse area. The back nine plays up toward the mountains and then back down to the clubhouse. It can get windy out here and many of the tees and greens on the back nine are a bit more exposed making for a real challenge if the wind is up.
Good customer service and good food and drink in the club house. It's a very nice venue and there were ample chairs and tables to accommodate our group inside. I hope to come back here more often.» Close

GK event last Saturday. What a great day: beautiful weather and good course conditions. We were in the first group out and, due to some cancellations at the course prior to our event, we were sent out a little early. Nice winter conditions with overseeded fairways and dormant Bermuda rough making for a nice contrast of color.
We played the combo Gold/White tees. They were all level and had good coverage of overseeded Bermuda. Lush at times with occasional divots. I never had to search for a decent place to tee from.
The fairways were great to hit from except for the occasional tight lie. There were sand/seed bottles on the cart.
The rough was good to hit from as well. It was dormant Bermuda and although it appeared to be mown tight, there was a good root base to give some cushion.
The greens were very nice. They rolled quick and true. Not too fast but enough to keep you on your toes for those downhill putts. I thought the greens were on the firm side, but I did fix a few small ball marks here and there.
The bunkers looked nice; however, they almost all had small rocks in them. I swear they had someone pick up a load of sand from the Colorado river, lol. Maybe it's just the liners were worn out or non-existent. At any rate, I would say the bunkers were not as nice as they could be. The pebbles were small enough to not cause too many issues.
Overall, I thought the course was nice. The clubhouse is on the old side and feels dated. There's a nice wood deck patio outside that we enjoyed after the round. The course personnel were friendly and helpful. The golf carts had coolers and ice in them when we arrived, and the starter had our carts lined up and ready well in advance of our tee times.» Close
