I was paired with two locals who knew the layout. They were friendly and I learned fast. FairwYs are narrow. But slopeinward, greens roll true. The manicured GC is one I can't afford. Therefore desert pine is my kind of place,

First of all, the course is in immaculate shape. The greens are big, yet challenging. And the food at the bar to end the round was amazing.

All in-all- great day! Looking forward to coming back to Vegas to play it again.

We played this course instead of TPC Canyons because TPC had just aerated the greens 2 days before. I called Desert Pines from Florida before booking the tee time to ask them about maintenance and was told the course was in great shape. When we arrived to play we discovered the greens had not grown in. Not happy paying big money to play beat up greens. We played 3 courses while we were there, only Desert Pines was in this poor a shape.

Greens were recently aerified. They were bumpy and slow.

Also, tight course. Must be a straight hitter.

A great course to play within the city limits. Short course but became interesting due to the pin placements and undulations of the greens. Just wished people would fix their divots in the greens. The greens looked like the surface of the moon. Come on guys, fixing your divots is part of the game!

The middle tee is rated as 120 (5520 yds) while the back tee is 137 (6222 yds). Maybe a back/middle tee should be there. Other than this v r happy with this course, always.

The course was in great condition. The greens were in great shape and offer a very fun challenge trying to 2 putt from anywhere. I played late Tuesday morning and there was a wait on every hole, likely because every fairway is narrow and every golfer in front of our group was slicing it into the adjacent hole.

All I ask is for is pure greens and well conditioned fairways and Desert Pines easily covered both. Good value for locals.

I live in Michigan, and decided I wanted to play golf while in Vegas. I was not disappointed, this course was very hard , but was very enjoyable. I would recommend this course to everyone , even if you don't hit it straight, you still could find your ball. The hardest part about this course was definitely the greens , very challenging putting, but the course is relatively short yardage wise.

This course is emaculate. It's like playing golf in a well kept park. Fairways are tight, but most holes are bordered by mounds that keep a rolling ball in play. Bunkers everywhere. Gorgeous ponds on a few holes. Greens are not too firm, but very undulating and good speed.

The course was a bit shorter than one of the long courses but still challenging. The course was in great shape. I will play it again the next time I am in Las Vegas. The cost through GolfNow was just what I was looking for.

Desert Pines was amazing! Who would have thought, you could find such an awesome and beautiful course, just 20 minutes away from the strip. I was looking at courses near the strip, and the pricing was ridiculous. I am glad that I decided to go with Desert Pines GC. The course was in awesome shape, and the staff was very friendly. I did use a Hot Deal on this one, and I will definitely be returning again in the future.
