    Annual golf trip all set for March 30 - April 2. Playing Cascata, Rhodes Ranch, Chimera and Red Rock. Any feedback on those courses ?

    Cascata -- top drawer
    Chimera/Tuscany -- OK, Vegas has better options but that is true from here on down
    Rhodes -- better-than-usual-Ted Robinson Ted Robinson housing development course
    Red Rock Arroyo (not private?) -- mid-pack

    But the big picture is you are going to Vegas and you are playing golf!!! Have fun.

    I've only played Chimera out of that bunch. Agree with ken2v re it, although it was good value for the price (Golfnow). Btw, the breakfast before in their restaurant was outstanding.

    Of the 4 courses you listed, I have only played Cascata. It was an amazing experience... I'd get there early to enjoy all of the amenities and to take pictures. Have fun!

    Yep, Cascata, like Shadow and some others, is not an arrive-late, sprint-to-the-first-tee golf experience.

    You didn't ask for recommendations but you can also ignore. If not this trip then research for future trips and consider Paiute courses just north of Las Vegas. Ken has mentioned them before and I have only played twice but wow! Have a great time.

    Rhodes Ranch routes through houses. Nothing wrong with it at all.
    We played Chimera when it was called Tuscany. Nothing wrong with the layout but it was not in good condition. But the name change went along with upgrades I believe.
    Cascata, nice. Good on ya.

    The important thing is that none of them suck, and that's all you should care about. I love my 3G trips (Golf, Gamble, Guzzle). We always say how hard life is doing them...Go golf at a nicely conditioned course in the morning, come back to the casino, have a great meal, then gamble with your buds. And here's the "hard" part, we have to wake up the next day, and do it all over again!

    I've always liked Rhodes Ranch. Nothing spectacular, but it has some pretty holes. I was a member at Tuscany/Chimera for a couple of years when OB sports offers touristas membership at locals prices. I was going down a lot and it was worth it. The course had a couple of funky holes, but otherwise was ok. Red Rock Arroyo is ok too. I like the private a bit better, but both are fine.

    Good Luck!

    Chimera was in fine shape when I played it two years ago. It was windy. Very windy there.

    For my annual golf outing in mid-May, we're hacking it up at: Wolf Creek, Las Vegas Paiute Snow, Rio Secco and Dragon Ridge.

    For pruner- I highly recommend Wolf Creek or Coyote Springs. Not golfing at Coyote Springs this year due to their spring aeration schedule.

    Playing Rhodes Ranch and Seinna next week----Red Rock Arroyo is good, Tuscany is one we will revisit this spring. Have played @15 in Vegas, other than the truly upscale courses, which we might not get to play again, we are starting to revisit most tracks.

    Golf is now a 4-5 hours break from the tables, just to help prolong our bankroll.

    Good lineup. REALLY good lineup. Have you played DragonRidge before? A couple quirky holes but a real sleeper on the Vegas golf scene. I prefer it to Southern Highlands ... shhh, that's heretical.

    Thanks Ken... I've played DR (5-6 years ago) but never WC so looking forward to that experience! Wanted to play LVP Wolf but it's being aerated close to our arrival time so we opted for Snow. From what I remember about DR is that they treat you like VIPs, the bar/grill is excellent, the views of the course and strip are breathtaking and there were a few holes with CRAZY split fairways... I think the 18th was but not 100%...
