Golf Club at Terra Lago
We were only able to play the North Course this time around due to the South being over-seeded (it looked amazingly lush), but assure you that we'll find the time to get out on the other track as soon as possible.
As promised in reviews we read, the course was in decent condition and the carts were among the fastest we've ridden in. Unfortunately, the common critiques also held true with a slow round and several missing components of a truly great course.
You would expect either GPS or free yardage books to be available since the course is not always as it appears in front of you - especially on the undulating greens. Heck, we would have settled for an occasional yardage on a sprinkler. Definitely bring your scope with you when you play Terra Lago and add a half club or so to the yardage provided by the few markers you do see. It is easy to imagine that these issues are a big factor in the slow play that seems to be common at Terra Lago.
Unfortunately, we also managed to run into several areas of standing water and mud despite the lack of rain in the area and the 95 degree temperature the day we played. The greens were also very slow for being in the desert, but they did hold their lines fairly well.
All in all, if it's good enough to host two Skins Games, it's probably good enough for most of us.
If you can book the breakfast buffet along with your round, do it and get there early because it is among the best at-course food options available, including a buffet-style omelette chef.
