In town for a few days on business. Too many courses to choose from! Decided on Chimera, couldn't have been a better choice. Course in excellent condition, consistent greens, challenging for all skill levels. Only problem I saw, patrons not repairing their ball marks on the greens, which is no fault of the management. Maybe they should hand out green forks at the pro shop. Would absolutely play again.

This is a great course, a little bit outside Vegas. It's a somewhat forgiving layout, making for a really fun round. The course is usually in excellent condition - I've only had a couple of times when this wasn't the case.

The overall service isn't particularly great. For the price that's not a dealbreaker, but it mostly just comes down to friendliness and attention to detail. I think improving the service would turn this course into a must play in Vegas.

Like other places in Las Vegas the wind is a factor, however this course is pretty open to allow for those winds. Enjoyable course that you have the chance to score well on.

Coure has a great mix of holes. Wonderful contours, pristine turf conditions. Playing in the strongest wind Las Vegas has seen in ten years emphasized the great design of this course. We played with a multitude of wind direction.

Even though the weather was very challenging the game and course provided one of my most enjoyable playing experiences!

We ended up having essentially record setting wind. On a short par 3 on the back we accounted for the win. I took 3 extra clubs for a 133 yard par 3 and flushed it. Normally that ball would go between 170 and 180. On this day the wind brought it all the way back to the tee boxes and it ended up being a 33 yard shot. Of course, later with the wind behind me I over drove a 383 yard green...and my average drive without wind is 240. Because of the layout we were fighting headwinds, cross winds, tail winds and it was severe enough that Vegas issued a wind warning, semis were tipping over...so for difficulty, it was insane for someone like me who cannot hit the ball low. But that is not fair to the course as that weather is atypical. The course itself is gorgeous with some really picturesque holes, enjoyable to look at.

My third time playing the course. New owner has improved the course quite well. Layout is a good challenge but equally fair. Greens roll true. The course was in excellent condition. Played in 4 hours (foursome). Got to play another 9 holes for the price of cart fee and got that done in about 65 minutes (twosome).

Good golf course. Great conditions - bunkers, fairways, greens, rough, and desert areas are exactly what they should be. Desert flora ate golf balls if you hit it in there. Staff was A+ friendly (cart guy, waitress in grill, and starter). Lack of available carts was an issue, we had to wait 45 minutes to get a cart after arriving. Course winds its way thru the neighborhood so there are houses and streets surrounding many holes. Wife and I enjoyed the course, would play it again.

I played this course based upon some of the previous reviews. Thanks to those reviewers. It's in about as good of shape as any high level resort/club I've played. The course is in a gated housing development so there are houses along most of the holes. Normally this is a turnoff for me but in this case the houses don't really come into play. I played on a very windy day so the course was somewhat challenging especially the holes at higher elevations. I certainly recommend this course for anyone looking for a quality course at a reasonable price.

I play 10 rounds in Vegas every spring and i always play this twice, I just love it. It is in a gated community which scared me the first time I played it but the houses are a nonfactor, you can't even really see them. The clubhouse is small, the free practice facility is very small but despite that it is still my favorite. I have never had anything but an amazing experience there. Course always in perfect shape, great layout, perfect amount of challenge for all levels, great staff. Breathtaking scenery. Each hole really has it's own character. Hard to describe this course it is just a must play. Greens fees are pricey but if you are patient you can usually get a decent golf now deal. I would still pay a hundred bucks to play it though I would never skip it

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.
