Inside and outside staff were great. Even though course conditions continue to decline, still enjoyed the round. Fairways in poor shape and bunkers full of weeds. Greens have many bare spots. I still have hopes course management will return these courses back to the jewels that they were.

To start I am an avid mid handicap golfer who has checked off many/most of the top Vegas courses over time. Guess Shadow Creek and Cascata remain on my list. I have always wanted to get out to Primm Valley so was eagerly anticipating the round.

Even brought a couple of friends with me who would never have considered going out to Primm.

Played a Friday morning round. Layout of the course and club house amenities were excellent. Course just wasn't in very good shape. Played the Lakes Course. Fairways were patchy, greens a bit shaggy and patchy in spots. Not sure if the course has suffered some disease in the grass or just general upkeep issues. Bottomline the conditions of the courses I played in Vegas proper on the same weekend seemed to be in better shape. Also a Golfnow critique - I made the tee time several weeks in advance, Golfnow obviously had my email but never informed me the greens on the Desert Course would be punched? After a bit of haggling Primm allowed us to play Lakes instead. Not sure if there is any "punched" notice responsibility but was disappointed I didn't find out until I arrived.

Luckily we were able to accommodate you on the Lakes course though! We hope you'll give us another chance sometime soon!

Primm Valley is a beautiful setting in the desert. Layout was challenging but reasonable. Condition of the course was poor. Fairways were rough,greens inconsistent. We paid 89.00 to play. It was worth more like 40. If you want a desert setting for golf go to the Paiute Golf instead of this place!

Fairways were dormant, greens not green, but putted ok. Not as appealing as a couple of years ago. Water is an issue at Primm and no extra water to be found and used on the Desert course. Clubhouse and bar were great and all staff were courteous and pleasant. Will go back after a good rain storm - but not if it is dry conditions.

Two great 18 hole courses. Great clubhouse and staff. Played the course in a shoulder season. Needs alot of water, but this is Nevada in the winter. It can only get better. Select the right tees and you'll get great shot value. If your gong to make the 45 min drive from Vegas, stay for 36 holes and lunch.

1st time playing, my partner said the course generally looks much nicer he thought the fairways may have had a fungus. I could see if the fairways were in better shape it would be a very nice course. Got a great hot deal price so not disappointed about the condition. Would have been if I paid the regular price. Will play again in the hopes it is in better shape next time. Staff was super friendly and helpful. They were the true gems at this place. Club house was nice and breakfast sandwich was delicious. Hope this helps.
