I haven't played the Lakes course in number of years and I use to love both courses, it was hard to believe that there was two beautiful courses at the California / Nevada state line. Every time I'd been in the past the courses were extremely well kept and in immaculate condition... a top notch resort style courses. But it appears that was back then... now the courses are kind of run down... on the Lakes course the tee boxes were good but that's where the good news stops. The fairways were marginally OK and the brown dead grass clippings everywhere, not just a little, there were lines and chunks everywhere which is just lazy maintenance and looks awful. I want to see and play lush green fairways. The sand traps were the worst I've ever seen for any course. First there's the lack of sand to the point that the liner material is exposed and tore up from shots being played. That's just a sign of poor maintenance or lack any maintenance. If a course can't maintain a sand trap then just fill it in and just have grass. The greens were OK, they were somewhat smooth but they lacked some maintenance because they could and use to be so much better. Overall I would skip this course (and the Desert course it looked to be in worse shape) until it gets brought back into good playable condition. I did read some bad reviews online before I booked our tee times but I didn't want to believe because of my past experience and especially since I called the Pro Shop and was told the courses were in "great shape except were a few sand traps" and they were in the process of renovating. After out first round on the Lakes side we canceled our tee time for the Desert side and opted to play in Las Vegas... the next day we played at Siena Golf Club which was a good golf experience especially given the last minute tee time, plus we found it at a summer discounted special online.

Response from Primm Valley Golf Club on 08/17/2017:

Thank you for taking the time to post a review, Tommy. Preparations for our overseed process requires the lowering of our mower heights, hence the excessive clippings and brown tint to some areas. This is required to ensure the excellent playing conditions during the cooler months. We apologize that your round was in the middle of this step. While they are not the lush green fairways experienced in cooler weather, we believe the turf conditions are still very good.

The process of reshaping and improving the bunkers has begun as well. We understand that during this period the bunkers are tough to play from but rest assured they will be excellent very soon.

We are in the beginning stages of a major overhaul of our facility and are excited to showcase the results in the coming weeks. We sincerely apologize that our conditions were not what you expected and we will contact you privately to make things right. Thank you again for your review and we look forward to exceeding your expectations next time!<br/>

Followup... Primm Valley Golf contacted me with an apology which I sent a response. I do appreciate that they took the time to contact me and address the issues with the review I posted. I am hoping that after the work that they have planned the courses will be brought back to "what they use to be" in the past. Should I play there again after the renovations I will post an update and hopefully it will be a positive one.

I have always loved this course and play it every time I come to Las Vegas. But it has seen better days. While the course is still a great facility, it's obviously been neglected. There is little or no maintenence going on here. There was stagnet water in the lakes, absolutely no sand in the bunkers and greens hadn't been rolled in weeks. The fairways were dried out and the weeds were taking over. It has gone from a 5 star facility to just above a "goat ranch". Really sad!!!!! I hope this isn't the sign of what's to come. I will say the staff still has a great attitude and were very welcoming. I hope they can keep Primm Valley going.

We always look forward to playing Primm. Pace of play is excellent, course conditions are very good, especially for a complex in the middle of the desert.

But, the real asset to the courses is the staff.

Julie, Kyle and Mark made sure we had an enjoyable ezperience.

We played the Desert Course Saurday and Lakes on Sunday and had a great experience on both,

We can't wait to return!

Friendly staff, helpful and knowledgeable. We played the Lakes and it was challenging enough for us as a couple with a handicap of 21 and 33. It was close to 100 degrees by 2PM. Thankfully, the beverage girl came by frequently and offered complementary bottles of water and ice and drinks for purchase. The price for beverages was reasonable in comparison to other courses. One final comment, the Lakes course has a lot more shade than the desert course.

We have played Primm Valley many times in the past but not in the last 3 years. We found the course conditions horrible. Spotty areas in the fairways and rough and very very very slow greens.

We traveled 45 minutes from LasVegas and expected much better than this

Either the course superintendent needs to be fired or the course needs to spend lots more on Maintainence.

Stay away

Thank you for your review. We apologize that the greens were not up to what you expect from Primm! We pride ourselves on excellent putting surfaces throughout the year. The greens were fertilized on the 14th, which would explain the slower speeds. Sorry that you caught us on an off day!

The course was great besides the traps. The traps literally had no sand in them. And because of the severity of the depth and lip heights, it was nearly impossible to get out of traps. A normally great course was made entirely substandard

we have been coming to Primm for 10 years, in the last 3 years the Course has gone down hill, customer service was almost nil, shape of the fairways on the lake side pretty poor. first nine we did the lakes, slow play a group of 40 were ahead of us. we moved to the Desert side for the remaining 9 holes, the Desert side is in much better shape the fairways were good. It seems the Course Management have put profit ahead of keeping a quality course

We were unlucky with the wind. It was definitely a factor but not too much to handle. The course is a fun, challenging and scenic layout. Lots of water. The tees and fairways were in good condition. The greens were in disappointing condition with lots of holes and scars, but I'd still play it again.

I will probably play this course again when we're staying in Vegas. It would rate 5 stars across the board if fairways were better maintained and shower in men's locker room wasn't leaking with just a bucket under shower head. Service was very good and server in grill room was a delight even though they weren't serving full menu.
