This is an amazing course to play if your in Nevada!!!! I'm from PHX. Played for the first time. Found a great HOT DEAL. This course has great elevation changes! Water, great bunkers that are soft. Beautiful views. The fairways look intimidating but actually have a lot of room. Greens were really nice. , rolled consistent. I am a 13 handicap and shot a +4 front nine and +4 back. One of the best courses I've ever played!

Course is very simple. Good for a practice round. Greens are fast. Nice fairways and greens. Good for beginner golf as there are not many hazards and it is easy to find balls when missing the fairway. Scenery was very plain and bland. I don't think I will go back because I enjoy the scenery when I golf and here it was non existent compared to other area courses.

One of my favorite all time courses. Extremely nice for any course, let alone a municipal one. Greens are fabulous. And lots of well kept ruffs. Very nice for the occasional errant drive. Great Mountain Views. Nice water features. I know you will enjoy the challenges this easy to play course presents.

The course is not in great shape. The greens were not bad, but very fast. The fairways are short-cropped & quite frequently just dirt & dead weeds - but it is winter. The price is good for the course, but there is no ranger, and a slow group can kill the day for everyone behind them. Waiting on every single shot can be tiring, and you get stiff standing in a 25mph cold wind. If they'd put a ranger out once or twice, to ensure good pace by all, it would improve the overall experience greatly.

Greens were small, but fast and in good shape. Tight, flat layout so good for walking. Fairways were in rough shape. Laid back atmosphere. Relaxing course for those not wanting a medium or high end experience.

This course is about 45-60 minutes from Las Vegas strip. It is a typical public course with enough challenges to make it fun. I would recommend this course for anyone traveling from California to Las Vegas or as a side trip to see Hoover Dam.

Just be aware of your tee time, since this was not readily announced to be on-deck.

We drive down from Las Vegas to play here often because it's so much more reasonably priced than the local courses. You won't get the amenities and service of a $100 course but, hey, it's golf for under $20. The course is fairly straightforward but there are some challenging holes. Greens are very tricky and fast. You'll see some locals playing in jeans but as long as everyone knows basic golf etiquette and keeps up, I'm OK. We had a good time playing with 2 other guys yesterday.

Course was in good shape and pretty easy with very wide fairways and limited water and sand. The pace of play was a little slow at the beginning so we skipped a couple of slower groups and came back later in the day to pick up those 2 holes.
