This course was in great shape, with lush fairway and receptive greens. The pace of play was my only negative to the round. I didn’t play up to my normal game but it wasn’t the fault of the course. The waste area was everywhere, but only in play on a wayward shot.

Although it was quite windy, it was warm & the course was beautiful with the mountains in the background. They had over-seeded with tons of rye seed so the course was green & lush (almost too lush since the rough was high & we didn't get the usual desert run in the fairways). We really enjoyed the round & it was a great bargain compared to like courses in the area (especially since we were staying nearby at the Westin).

Ok, a couple years ago this place was one of the best bang fo your buck courses around, then it was sold, now the rates have gone up considerably, and the conditions have gone downhill. Seemed to me i was paying for their fancy new carts, gps with flyover videos, extra stowage inside under roof, and the most aggravating stall control when you travel anywhere they don't want you, i.e. parking lot, desert area, etc. It lets you get in then cuts out, you have to put it in reverse to get out, but nobody tells you that when you start, you will likely see people breaking their backs trying to push them out. As far as conditions go, the greens were still ok for the most part, the fairways and rough had quite a few bald areas, many parts of fairways looked as though they hadn't been mowed in a while, about level with 1st cut of rough. Bottom line is i more than likely won't be going back there, i honestly feel it's not worth today what they used to charge prior to being sold, forever it was like $22 and that included a free drink, now the best your gonna get is like $30, and thats rare, usually $45-$65! No thank you! There's much better for that money in this town!

PId 17.49 on golf now, and it wasn't worth even that. There are so many bare areas around the greens and fairways. There may be more crab grass that's 5-6 inches tall in the fairways than actual grass. The greens are so slow That you can hear the ball rolling. Spend an extra 10 15 bucks and play elsewhere the is a complete waste of 4 hours of your day.

When this course was Tuscany it was in sensational shape whenever I played it. Now, as Chimera and under new ownership, it is close to unplayable. Aside from way too many brown and barren areas throughout the course, there is a proliferation of crabgrass and weeds on almost every fairway. This situation didn't suddenly happen, this is a result of ongoing neglect, and totally unacceptable. It's a shame that was once a very good course that was always in tip top shape has been allowed to deteriorate to this extent. Currently, it's not worth playing at any price.

"The course is in transition" is the equivalent of saying "she's got a good personality". Both are situations to steer clear of.

I've played this course several times and am always left feeling good about my decision. That being said, the course was definitely not up to its usual standard today with several areas of dead grass and immature sod around the greens. The greens themselves were in solid condition and rolled true. As soon as the fairways return to form Chimera will again be a top course in the Las Vegas area.

Played this course with a friend on Aug 3, 2017 which was my second visit to the club. I first played the course in April 2017 when the course was in superb condition. This time around the fairways were bare of grass in places, full of weeds and generally appearing to be bereft of new seeding. The tee boxes were in shocking condition and looked a real state. Thankfully the greens were rolling true if a little slow.

A huge disappointment to see such a good course have deteriorated in just four months. It would appear the golf club is under new management. If they do not start spending money on the upkeep of the course very soon there will be few visitors wishing to play the course irrespective of the cost. A huge shame to see such a well designed and challenging course in such a sorry state.

I've played this course many times when it was under different ownership and called Tuscany. I was in town visiting and decided to give it a try. Complete waste of time because it seemed that the course had not been maintained in weeks. Dirt all over the tee boxes, fairways, and greens. Looks like they're going to close down and gave up on maintaining the course and just decided to keep it open until it's completely unplayable, which is not far away. Really disappointing considering how nice this course used to be. Complete waste of money and time. I highly suggest playing one of the many other great courses that Vegas has to offer.
