The course here in Henderson is set apart from other courses. The fairways were immaculate and the greens were pure. My only complaint would be the pace of play. We got through the front nine at a reasonable pace, but then we caught up to a group sent out 20 minutes before us. The play was ridiculously slow then as we were behind two groups who clearly didn't play golf very often.

We play Chimera every trip we make to

Vegas. It's a good deal and has always been in great condition. This trip was no exception.

Course was crowded and pace felt a little slow, but we finished in 4 hours.

We'll be back next year.

Chimera, formally Tuscany, is an excellent option in Vegas. I've played dozens of courses here and Chimera is a great value. The course was in excellent condition. Greens were firm but a tad slow and in very good condition. There are houses all along the course but it never feels too tight. Not very long, we played from the blacks at 6300ish yards. Playing anywhere near the strip, (20 min away) for under $100 is hard to do especially a course in this good of shape.

I absolutely love this course, the scenery is beautiful and the landscaping is incredibly well-maintained. This is the prettiest course I've played so far. I've played FootGolf on it before but this was the first time playing actual golf; and it was great! I'm a very novice golfer so I don't have much to say about the difficulty (except that when playing FootGolf, if you miss left or right on the last hole, your soccer ball is going in the drink).

The range is good and included in the green fees. The staff is friendly. The only downside was the cart wasn't fully ready for us (hardly any sand and there was no cooler). Although I didn't get to try the food or drinks, the bar & grill looks very good.

It's also very cool to have the option to upgrade to the Golf Boards or the fancy golf cards (Hummer or Escalade). The Pro Shop has a lot to offer as well. I'll definitely play this course again.

This was a lovely course. Every staff member was very friendly day and helpful. The course is laid out beautifully great views and immaculate fairways and greens. Pace was a tad slow because of a woman's tourney so tee off was delayed as we had to wait for a few frpups to make the turn. The only complaint, and it's not on the course at all, is the group behind us must have thought our pace was slow. We were right behind the group in front of us, often waiting to hit. The group behind hit into us twice, hitting our cart once as we were driving away. We finished the round in 4:20, not horribly slow for a busy day.

New and experienced golfers will enjoy the wide fairways and forgiving greens. Well maintained and interesting holes. A pleasure to play and the views are spectacular. Clubhouse staff were friendly and helpful. Restaurant staff as well. They did a booming business on "Taco Tuesday" followed by a trivia contest. A regular Tuesday event. What a fun course!! Booking on GolfNow on their Hot Deals made the price quite reasonable.

Whether local or tourist, Chimera is one track you should play again and again. Course conditions: excellent. Layout: nice track. Views: red mountains, long shadows, elevated tees frame the iconic structures of the Strip tip to tip. Played one of my best rounds. The value is only beat by the views.
