    Is Wolf Creek the must play if I drive out there or are the others like casablanca or Falcon worthy?

    Also, is Eureka the nicest casino in town and a safe place to leave my wife while I hack it around?

    Double also, haven't seen Malibu post in a while. Hope all is OK with him.

    Wolf Creek is a must play, yes. My group of 16 pretty well traveled golfers all thought it was fantastic.
    The other courses in the area were all very well maintained. We were not disappointed in any of the courses there.
    The casinos aren't big and fabulous though. Eureka and Casa Blanca are okay to park a wife for awhile.

    Following Wolf the must-play in town is Conestoga. And of course Coyote Springs on the way up or back. Let her chill at Eureka, yes.

    I'm playing golf with Malibu in a few weeks. He resides elsewhere now.

    @Snidely ... have you ever made it up to St. George? Great golf up that way.

    Never been up there. Played Desert Pines today. Hit the ball well but after Eagle Crest yesterday and their very slow greens had a lot of trouble adjusting to the speedier greens at DP. 5 hour round.

    Wife had fun at Boulder Station. Not the nicest casino but ok. Wife won a thou on various slots and VP.

    DP had a par 3 challenge hole. Even money bet, $20-100 in pro shop credit if you hit the green. 145 to the center of a large green. I should have bet more.

    Playing Conestoga tomorrow. Hoping it will be a quicker pace of play than WC.

    They have had that just about every time we played there. We figure it's not really an even money bet. It's more like a lay bet. Laying two to win one. I say that because everything in the pro shop is twice as expensive as it is at a retail golf shop. And that's assuming you need something of course.

    Conestoga was great. Got teamed up with some really nice folks.

    We're at Casablanca casino now. Didn't know what to expect but it's a very clean and safe.
