Mesquite Municipal Golf Course

This course is not your standard Public course that is easy and has bad greens. This course is difficult and the Greens are in great shape, fast, smooth, but worth the trip.

The starter told us not to be above the hole and he was right. They had redone all the greens and they did a great job.

They would play this course again.

The layout of this course is completely fine, but the greens are extremely fast. Faster than most country club courses I've played, which is a lot, but that is also completely fine as it’s great to see such greens at a public course. What ruins it is that the greens are very hilly, which in itself is also fine, but they choose to cut the holes on the inclines of those hills on almost every hole. This means anything but a straight uphill putt unfairly rolls yards away from the hole, turning most of your GIRs into 3-putt bogeys as putts would arc up a sidehill and then coast twice as far from the hole on the other side. I do note I played a charity tournament here the very next day and it was the first time I had seen all the holes cut on flat portions of the greens, and my guess is they wanted participants to enjoy the course and maybe come back in the future, so they didn’t want to frustrate them with the usual ridiculous hole placements.

But the worst thing about this course is the staff. They treat players like they would rather not have them touch their course at all. They have marshals patrolling every hole, which is very uncomfortable as they stalk you during your round, and rather than hiding while you hit, they stop in your line-of-sight and watch you closely. They also drive up on you while you’re on the teebox addressing the ball, which is one of the rudest thing anyone can do on a course. They also tell you not to drive the cart on most of the rough to find/play your ball, especially between any trees, which is frankly where you need your cart the most to both find your ball and decide your recovery shot. You also cannot drive your cart to the practice chipping area, which is not very close at all to the clubhouse and which allowing would not interfere with anything at all. But by far the most ridiculous thing we experienced was being lectured on how we were supposed to pick up a ball out of a hole! Note there are an excessive amount of unrepaired ballmarks from the golfers too special to repair their mark, but never a mention from the marshal-per-hole stalking each group for these selfish jerks to repair damage they caused.

Although I’ve played here many times, the treatment by the staff in both their unnecessary lecturing of ridiculous rules and their continuous stalking of each group is too distracting to want to return to this course any more. The entire round you are too distracted by wondering if you’re breaking yet another unwritten made up rule, which you’re about to be called on by the stalker following you before each shot, than to enjoy your round.

They would not play this course again.
