Good course & layout. A little beat up in areas but the course itself fairways, greens etc were in good condition. Would play here again at 50% rate. Would never pay full non-resident rate $120 lots of better options in the vegas area for $100+

Very well maintained course... The people were extremely nice. The Marshall had to speed us up and was very nice about it. He was right we were playing slow but after telling us we caught up with the group ahead of us. The course itself is absolutely fantastic. There are several houses on the fairways that are in bad need of repair but the course beauty certainly made up for it. Greens were just as nice.

The course is tired. He homes surrounding the course are even worse, very run down from a once glamorous time. The garbage surrounding the river is totally disgusting. Pleasant staff and as it was a wet morning with very few gofers, I played 18 holes in just under 2 1/2 hours. Won't rush back here.

First off I'd like to say that this course was lush in the areas that needed to be lush. If you're off the fairway or way off the green complexes, the grass is patchy. Not a huge issue. The housing around the course is dated to say the least, but your on the course not in the houses. This course and the clubhouse have a vintage, classic untouched feel to them which is kind of refreshing. The course was in great condition, the greens were fantastic and the staff were awesome. Go early and have breakfast. For 8$ you can have an amazing breakfast and go golf a classic course with a ton of history for 65$ on Golfnow. The house on the left side of the first fairway with the pink trim is the house from Casino. Like I said before, tons of cool history.

Great layout. Excellent greens, very tough, Excellent staff. Good food.

Now the bad. Grass burnt out or dead in many area of the course.

The surrounding homes, many appear to have been abandoned or homeless people living there.

Lots of garbage in the water hazards, not visually appealing. This is the second time I have mentioned this issue. Need to spend a few and get this eyesore cleaned up. Could be a 5 star course otherwise.

Took a long weekend trip to Vegas. The course was less than 15 minutes away from the Palazzo. Scheduled an 8:10 am tee time, but due to a freeze delay (chilly Jan day) all tee times prior to 9 am start were a shotgun start. No problem with the delay as the staff was great and I got to spend time talking golf and Vegas activities with the local golfers. I was a little rusty, but the course was great as the weather warmed up through the round.

Played here two consecutive days last week. Sun was out, temperatures were only 50 degrees or less, and no wind. Perfect! For a 100 golfer, this was great for me and my wife. Relatively long holes but not much to get in trouble with. Fast surfaces. Very classic old Vegas surroundings. Lots of history. Tiger won Vegas Invitational here in 1996. Under $20 taxi each way from Mirage. Great staff, nice pro shop, very good food. Fun.
