Before our round at Laughlin Ranch Golf Club in #bullheadcity #arizona Sunday. Beautiful morning and practice area to warm up. So impressed with this course. Here’s a review my buddy @robknick6 posted on GreensKeeper.org...
“Played the GK event on Sunday, 7/15. Always a splendid time with fabulous people. Well done Johnny! Course was phenomenal. Very comparable to Wickenburg Ranch, which I heard they were inspired by LR. Tee boxes in great shape. Fairways were lush and carpet like, just incredible considering Laughlin is 5-10 degrees warmer than Vegas. Rough was minimal and easy to deal with. Bunkers were hit in miss. I was in 2, both on 18. Front left was filled with plenty of good side stones, the right side was clear of rocks, with some heavy sand. There's maintenance being done (removal, re-shaping, letting nature take over) to bunkers throughout the course. Greens were slow and hadn't been mowed, and I can imagine they are dastardly when fast, with all the contours and large areas. Only bad point for me was the food and drink area. Grill did not open until 9, so no pre-round food. Drink cart started around 8:30, and we met her on 8, with no food in the cart, just drinks. The "outpost grill," near the practice area and between 9 and 10 holes, was closed for remodeling. I will give the cart girl kudos for taking our food order on the course, calling us so we could change it, and then delivering it out to us. I later checked their website and saw they don't have a breakfast menu and usually don't open until 11, except brunch on Sundays. Just be prepared if playing an early round. Overall, I LOVED the course. Challenging but rewarding, great scenery (even though I missed the burros), and a great layout of holes. Already have the next round planned and will be here at least twice a year.”
