We played the West Course early in the season. For the modest green fee ($50 with Golf Car) it is a reasonable value, and the layout is interesting as the championship layout weaves among an established residential community. The greens were slow and the overall course condition was somewhat wanting. Tee boxes are well-used, fairways had many areas under repair, and the traps were un-raked and rocky. I had the impression attempts are in work to improve the experience, but in my view, they have a ways to go. Enjoy the course but keep your expectations in check.

I got into Lake Havasu about midday and rang the golf club about a game that day. I managed to get on to the Nassau course about 1.15pm

Cost of game before 2pm was $65 including cart + $30 for clubs.

Nassau couse winds around the houses and over main roads and I got lost 3 times.

Plenty of dog legs requiring good course management.
Greens in very good shape.
Fairways reasonably tight and in average condition for a country course.

I suspect the London course is the better one to play. I would not rush back to Nassau.

If only people knew about the great breakfast here, both IHOP and Denny's would go out of business.

So the plan was: See The London Bridge, stay at hotel with a view of the bridge AND jacuzzi tubs (to relax us after our rounds), play golf with the picturesque lake and bridge in the background, and have dinner with the bridge lit up at night in the background . . .

We stayed at the Agave, which was being refurbished while we were there, but our room was very nice, had a giant jacuzzi, and a lakeside view (see!) of the bridge -- it looks in very good shape . . . can't imagine why the foolish British parted with it and this maniac McCulloch from Arizona that pinched is some sort of genious -- I don't know what kind, tho'.

We ate at Shuegar's across the street from the hotel, which has the aforementioned views, but we were stuck back in some stuffy windowless corner . . . the food's ok, I guess, but the flight of Syraz we got struck Mrs Cactus down . . . I almost had to carry her back to the hotel -- thinking seriously about a lawsuit . . . 8^P . . .

And the only golf course in sight of the bridge seems to be some little 9holer at the London Bridge Resort -- forget it . . . but we were pleased for the most part with the London Bridge Courses several miles away, anyway. . .

Lawrence Hughes has done many semi-famous courses, and Mr Science & I enjoyed the one he designed that we played up in Prescott, the Antelope Hills North Course, but our Ladies did not, since, as old-school designs, the considerations for the distaff gender were not so generous as on modern courses, and so it was here . . . but the East course is short, so for women it only measures 5045 yds.

Mrs Cactus was breaking in her new Taylor Made Miscela clubs, and we'd have to judge that a success: she's still got some learning curve on the hybrids, but she was getting a great trajectory on her Driver Shots.

We were rusty, having not played for several weeks, due to bad weather and the FBR, but I still felt like I should break 80 -- din't even come close, wound up with 44+44=88 . . . we complained about the greens the whole day . . . they weren't bad, just much slower than we're used to in Scottsdale, like a Sun City Course.

I had only one birdie, tho' I had several chances . . . on 17, a 515 yd, down-hill, down-wind par 5. I totally busted a drive 315 yds -- I was all but standing on the 200 yd disc. For some reason, a singleton in a cart in the group in front of us didn't leave the green area after they finished, he just sat there, totalling up bets or something . . . I waited till I couldn't wait anymore and hit anyway, a 7wood . . . It never got more than a foot in the air, but it didn't bounce much either, and rolled past the rear of his cart . . . THEN he moved off. . . my ball wound up just past pin high just right of the green. . . I liked my eagle chances, but -- the thing with these greens is that when the slope & the grain go the same way, the ball really rolls . . . it rolled off the green into the fringe, 20 ft past the cup . . . MAN I was burning . . . but it was dead straight back up hill, and I rolled the comeback in. . . it didn't thrill me, I felt entitled after a day-long of putts coming up short or breaking 2 feet the last foot.

Studiously avoiding the dreaded PBFU, I put a real smooth swing on #18 (shown right) and hammered my drive again, with a tight draw that looks like I know something . . . 8^P. . . the difference tho', is that this hole is uphill to the green from the landing area and INTO a 2 club wind, so this one still went 259 . . . I was standing on the 200 yd disc again . . . 8^D. . . but instead of 7wood, I had to use my 3wood, and just found the front right corner of the green. 3putt from 50+ ft, dangit.

Hughes is a very intelligent designer, if not particularly flashy . . . he uses a few trees sparingly, but well, sand traps effectively, and the changes in elevation are meaningful . . . there's 4 very short par 4s, but I didn't birdie any of them, bogied one and took a 7 on the other, trying to drive the green.

As is common on these elderly courses, the 4s have grown almost as long as the 5s. The design is a little quirky: 1 3 on the front; 3 3s on the back, which makes the course sound, on paper, like an executive, but it never felt like less than a championship course, playing it . . .

I have ranked it 3 on a scale of 5 (Neutral / average) since I am comparing it to Phoenix Courses, if you see what I mean . . . it was great & good fun . . .

Excellent staff!
Course was in good shape EXCEPT for the traps -- mud/packed dirt and pebbles. Traps detracted from an overall good experience.

Overall course condition is poor they have missed something in keeping the fairways in good condition. Played both Nassau and London Bridge both fairways are a lot of painted winter kill with patches of grass. Greens are in a poorer winter condition, sand in bunkers are typically a fine stone. Things need to improve a lot to justify their increased charges in Jan, Feb, March.

This actually 2 golf courses side by side so to speak. And I think both are great courses. They are in very good condition this year and are playing well. I recommend either course. Scenery is beautiful and of course any time you're in Lake Havasu City it's a good time.

Large portions for breakfast at a reasonable price. Great views of Lake Havasu and the lower part of the city. You can sit indoors or on the patio. Staff is friendly and service is good.

Course was Ok, but wasted $60 playing as the staff, actually only one guy, was really a jerk. So unbelievable that I actually complained to management there. First time ever at a golf course , perhaps anywhere. Down the road there is far better courses for similar money.

This is a well maintained corse with great views of the local area. It is worth playing several times. The restaurant and pro shop staff are friendly.
