Little Mountain Country Club
Unique, well done course. Lots of bunkers, paved cart paths.

Great layout, horrible maintenance issues
We played this course 2-3 days after a heavy rainstorm. Unfortunately, this left half of the bunkers underwater or muddied and the 18th hole essentially unplayable due to a water (sewer) line break on the fairway that left the hole in embarrassing shape.
The maintenance problems were very disappointing as the course itself has great "bones" - rolling hills, challenging trap placement, deep bunkers and quality greens. I would love to play the course if/when it is in prime shape but don't know if that's an unreal expectation.

Greens and Rangers
Most of the greens were back to normal. The 2 that weren't still rolled decently.
They could use some rangers to monitor course. Group in front of us just about drove carts on greens. On the par 3 14th 1 guy drove cart behind green and got hung up on curb when leaving. Swearing at us for not helping him after his group left him. People like this just ruin a nice course.

The greens, fairways and rough were in great shape and very enjoyable to play. But with all the bunkers that are part of this courses design get it togethe!. At best 50% are unplayable and 30% look like construction sites. Someone needs to come up with a solution for this problem. Every year that passes it just gets worse.

amazing modern course
Little Mountain is easily one of the best courses in the area. It is fun to just marvel at design. However the design is probably the cause of only issue the course has in my opinion, which is the bunkers. There are a seemingly unending amount of bunkers, that seem to swallow up golf balls. Most of the bunkers around the green are at least head high, most seem taller, even some fairway bunkers were very deep. The bunkers were groomed nicely, but very firm under a soft top layer. I saw many other groups having the same issues attempting to get out around the green. It was nice from the fairways, but it was hard to get under the ball.
The greens were the firmest and fastest of any course I've played this year, very fun and very difficult to putt on. Greens were amazing.

One staff member ruins the bunch
I arrived early and was promptly informed by the guy at the front desk that the other three guys for my tee time were running late (strangers to me as I booked a single), and that I needed to go speak to the starter. This would be fine, except for the fact that the starter, Tomas, was grumpy, barely acknowledged my existence, and went about his other business. The other staff members (I think they were rangers, wearing different colored shirts) were actually helpful and approachable. After that initial shock of Tomas' indifference, I was paired with two other guys. These guys were enjoyable to play with and knew the course. It's not shocking that their first words to me (literally) were "That guy (Tomas) is not friendly." Apparently Tomas does not discriminate with his colorful personality. Now I'm not calling for Tomas' head here, but if this is how he treats people on a normal basis, I will just be steering clear of this place. If I want a starter with the disposition of a Brillo pad, I will stay home and clean my house. The course itself was pretty nice (nicer than other people had told me). Apparently the bunkers were a mess earlier in the season. While there were a few bunkers with some serious rocks in them, the course conditions were above average. My only gripe was the pace of play. There were a few people ahead of us that really should not be playing this course or should opt for the front (or even women's tees). 3 stong players should not take 5 hours to play the course. The fact that the course has so many staff and rangers, it is alarming to me that there was not more sense of urgency in moving the play along. On many tee boxes, we had a 10 minute wait. I will play elsewhere if this is not addressed. The girls in the clubhouse and cart girl were cute, friendly and helpful.
