I was staying at Harrah's in Rincon over President's day weekend and I went here that Saturday and Monday because it was only 9 miles away.
I'll break this review into parts so I can keep it straight in my head.
The fields were okay for rec fields. However, half of them were played sideways on a hill. The bunkers didn't seem to really have a purpose, just kind of put there for you to use. The high side always had an advantage, and each field had a dominant starting side. I understand they did what they could with what they had so eh.
Very good price. When I went on Satuday, the lady charged me $19. The only "weird" thing was, when I went on Monday, the guy working the counter (Middle Easterner?) charged me $20 because he said it was "$19 plus tax so it's $20". Now, I wasn't going to argue over a buck but don't lie to me! haha The tax on $19 is not a buck AND you can't charge tax on a service...but whatever.
I can't in good conscience give it a 0 but I am inclined to. There was really no goggle or plug enforcement at all. Really, not at all. After EVERY game, people would immediately pull their goggles off and weren't checked on it at all. There was no barrel plug enforcement and there were even people shooting at boxes and other things in the parking lot. Now, the parking lot was about 40/50 yards from the booth but I could see it from there so they should have also. I am not complaining per se about it, but it's just part of the review.
It was kind of newbie, but there were some decent players there. There were too many who would; shoot out all of their paint the first game then call themselves out, or call themselves out without being shot, or shoot their teammates in the back. Yes, I know they are at all parks, but there were a LOT here both days I went.
Aside from not enforcing safety rules, the staff was kind of up and down. There were a couple refs who were on the ball somewhat. They didn't really "ref" but more like started and stopped the games. I will say though that some of the fields were not conducive to reffing. Meaning, there wasn't really a place for them to ref from, and doing paintchecks on the side of a mountain can be both exhausting and treacherous. They did have a lot of refs though and broke up some of the walkons so the numbers wouldn't get out of hand.
I would say play any field once to you can get a clear picture of it, including this one. I wouldn't make a trip to this park unless I was at Harrah's again, but I wouldn't rule out not ever going again.
