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.

This was my 2nd time playing this course. The first being 6 or 7 years prior. 30 min frost delay in morning. Quite unusual for this course. A long hitter could eat up the par 5s as they are not particurlarly long. I played from the whites and am a 9 handicap on this course. Quite a few bunkers. Waste areas and water on a few holes. Bermuda fairways were half green and half brown. Greens were wet and held very well. Many uphill. Downhill and sidehill lies. Reading greens somewhat of a task due to course being built into side of hill. A very fair test but reasonably accurate drives and a decent mid to short iron game and this courae can be had. 4 hour round. I rated this excellent value value for money due to golf now hot deal. Walkong off the street and paying rack rate. That would not be the case. A very nice course none the less.

The course, staff, and conditions were absolutely perfect. If you're coming from Las Vegas, it's worth the drive. When I tell people about Primm, I always recommend the Lakes course but we played the Desert course and when I go back, I'll be playing the Desert course again. I really like the layout, driveable par 4's, tough par 3's, even back to back par 5's on the front 9 which makes it unique. One negative thing I would say is that they didn't have any tap beer in the bar (all the taps were down) and the other beer selection wasn't the greatest. If you don't drink beer --- there wasn't a negative about the day. The practice facilities are world class with free range balls, two practice chipping areas where you can work on your 80 yd and in shots, and two practice greens (one for each course).

If your running from Las Vegas to SoCal or vice versa you would never imagine that this lush golf paradise lies right behind the berm with the trees. Well worth the 45 minute run from Las Vegas, but I must caution everyone about high weekend traffic volumes, not the course's fault, but I15 can be a pain at those times.

All I can say is WOW! Did not expect a course like this out in the middle of nowhere. Desert course is a great layout with numerous elevation changes and a challenge for a good player but very playable for my buddy who is a higher handicapper. Course was in good condition overall. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Wonderful experience for us Texans looking for something different out here and we found it. Will try and come out here every time I come to Vegas!

If it hadn't have been for the 5+ hour round it would have been great. I called the pro shop on the 13th hole to ask if they would help us out and send a marshal to kindly speed up a group in front of us. "They are only 1/2 a hole behind" they said. 14 runs parallel to 13 and no one was on it. No marshal ever came and the back nine took an agonizing 3 1/2 hours. Factor in the 45 minute drive back and forth to Las Vegas and it turns into an all-day ordeal to play at Primm. It's a shame, too. Both courses are quite good and the practice facilities are excellent.
