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

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

This course is about 30 min from town, very affordable, and in good shape. 2 18 hole loops. Both different from the other. Large practice facility nice balcony for drinks. And the staff is very friendly, they want your business.

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.

Green structures challenging but fair.

Mid-March and we played the Lakes Course. I'm thinking they're getting ready for their summer seed, as the courses has a lot of brown in it. Regardless though, we had a great time! We enjoyed the fast greens (once we got used to them), and the sloped fairways. Huge sandtraps line many of the holes and created a challenge. But all in all the course was fun! We started with a great lunch in the clubhouse and spent the afternoon on the course. Will definitely golf there again when we are back in Vegas!

This course is a great and fun layout but the conditions have really gone downhill. Fairways are dormant with clumps of grass where you keep getting bad lies.i would expect the dormant fairways for this time of year, but, not with all the different types of grass trying to grow in. The bunkers are hard with virtually no sand but plenty of rocks to scar your clubs. The value is solely based on the $24 green fee. If it hadn't been for the $24 golfnow hot deal, I would have felt ripped off. The staff however, was second to none. Very friendly and accommodating. On the plus side, you do get more roll on the drives.

The greens were in good condition and rolling true. The fairways were patchy in their color but for the most part landing on grass was always possible. Sand traps were NOT. Trap linings were visible in 95% of them. Disappointing!

I finished my round, got cold as expected for February. Great course, winter grass was a little dry and tough. Overall course was in good shape. G

Tuff greens, nice layout, use good course management to approach greens and even on a cold winter day you will have fun. I will return to play on a warmer day!

Views of the mountains on all four sides. Course is fair but demands your aim and distance be true as many sand traps ready to welcome your ball .Greens are on the fast side but a good putt will hold its line. Overall a great day of golf and we will be going back!! Also I thought going that far outside Vegas area to play was off putting but the drive was easier than going across Vegas to play.

This course was in ok winter condition, but the greens were quite good - smooth, fast and tricky. It can be very windy and cold this time of year, but I caught a great day with no wind. Both courses at Primm are interesting and quite different, Give them a try on the way to or from Vegas.

After all the stress from work, me and my family decide to take a 5 day vacation to vegas.

We heard of all the courses we could play in vegas but wanted a affordable price where all of could afford and not break the bank. We asked the hotel staff at the wynn and they recommended a bunch of courses. Of course not wanting to pay more then 50 dollars per person, our bell boy told us about primm.

The drive from the strip is about 50 min going 70 flat. It is a horrible drive and would recommend it to anyone. We arrived and notice a front entrance but no one was inside. We arrive at bag drop and waited for about 5 min before getting our bags in a cart.

We arrive at the bar and the lady inside was very pleasant. We arrive in the shop and we are waiting to check in. We notice that the person inside was not friendly and was not courteous at all. He was extremely rude and had no communication skills. It seemed that he didnt enjoy life and hated everyone in the world. Everyone inside seemed very arrogant but who am i to make judgments in people who i dont know personally.

We finally were able to check in and teed off. As we were playing, we noticed a group in front were extremely slow and tearing up the course. We called the shop and the person said he would send out a Marshal. No Marshal came for 30 minutes and we called again. We spoke to the man on the phone and he said he personally go out and check out the group in front. After 1 Hr and 45 min we saw no one. We were so frustrated with the customer service, we just left after playing 6 holes. We wanted nothing to do with the course and incompetent people who work at the course.

If you like slow play and rude staff come this course. I will never be returning to this course ever!

Our daughter, and her family (3 grandsons) live in Vegas, so we drive through Primm a lot. Yesterday we decided to stop and play the course, and were happy we did. Challenging without being frustrating, pretty to see, and very quiet - we let two singles go through during the course of our round.

Great clubhouse, and good food! Staff was knowledgable and friendly.
