Played Sunday, 9/20, high school buddy's group had an opening for a 4th. Course was busy but we got out just before the Men's Club and finished in just over 3.5 hours.
Course is in beautiful shape. Tee boxes are crowned just a bit on the edges, but lots of flat areas. Fairways are lush, but a handful have some thin areas a couple GUR. Rough is cut about 1-2 inches, I wish it was a bit longer to hold up the ball from rolling down into the ditch (talking some 30-40 yards of roll in some areas). The greens are fantastic. The paspalum looks lush and thick, but rolls smooth and medium/fast, picking up speed as the day went along and they started to dry. When wet, the paspalum just kills the ball, making low runners just die.
Yes, it's a muni, but it's a well taken care of muni in excellent shape. Incredible price for locals, $32 weekday, $39 weekend. All grass range and large putting green. Also has a short game area.
C-19: must pay online, no paying at the course; single rider carts, walking allowed (same price); bar/grill area closed (forgot to ask if they were opening since NV restrictions are lifted tomorrow), but drink cart is out and about.

Played on Thursday, 8/6, with a pre-7am round. Course was empty just prior, then a busy period around the time we went off. Played with a high school buddy, his friend, and his friend's beginner friend. Finished in about 3:40 with 3 carts and a walker.
Anytime you talk Sunrise, you talk about the greens. They are excellent and live up to the self-proclamation as the "best greens in Vegas." No signs of the aeration 3 weeks ago, just smooth as glass and close to fast. Surprising, this is the first time I've seen a few ball marks. Bunkers looked good. Rough was pretty low around the left side and along the top of the wash which is always on the right. Fairways were mostly great, but some had standing water and about half had GUR because of it (especially on the back 9). Tee boxes were in good shape, especially on the par 3s. There's some maintenance being done along the wash on both sides, but was away from normal landing areas.
The Club at Sunrise is always a fun, relaxing round but has some bite with holes 9-11. The grill is currently closed but there is a drink cart on the course.
