Playing the course for the first time, it's a bit tricky figuring out where to play your tee shots. Hitting the fairway can make this much longer and knowing the course will make it play much shorter. A few places where course knowledge will make a big difference.

Overall good layout in good condition with challenging greens. Will play again.

Everything was great except for this problem. We had to wait past our scheduled tee time because the Club had booked a side game or type of play with some 30 players. We also had to skip a couple of holes because of this, which put us behind time. I think added play should be noted on the website so prospective players know what to expect.

My wife and I were in Vegas for the week. She played 3 courses with me and I played 2 more on my own. 2 average courses and 3 upscale. I played Mountain Falls on my own since the ratings were fantastic…I now understand why. I got a hot deal but with rack rates at $70 tops, it is well worth the hour drive. Tee boxes, fairways were in excellent shape. Greens were super fast with a lot of undulation, but rolled true. Great layout, water features on the back nine made it feel like a country club. Two negatives are the drive (an hour from Vegas but up and over a mountain pass was cool) and number 2 is the 1200 houses that are in the process of being constructed. There are a lot of bulldozers and hammers, but the course is still worth it in my opinion. Driving range was great…sandwich at the club next door was awesome. Really looks and feels like a private country club. Highly recommended for the price in Vegas.

I played this course 8 years ago, it was in nice shape then and it is in great shape now. Greens can be challenging, not to many flat lies, and the fairways have their share of slopes as well. I was teamed up with a nice three-some of locals who pointed out the do's and don'ts. I will play it again.

I love Mountain Falls Golf Course. It's always in excellent condition, the layout is challenging, the people are extremely helpful and friendly, and the price is right. What else is there?

I like that the front and back were designed by two different companies - Jack Nicklaus' company designed the front, and Cal Olson designed the back. They play differently, and I like that since I play at Mountain Falls all the time.

The front is more wide open, but with fairway traps that are definitely in play. Avoid them and you have a much better chance at a good score, but the other great obstacle are the greens. I find it much harder to read putts on the front nine. There are also numerous tiered greens that make a two putt frequently difficult.

The back is just as difficult, but for completely different reasons. I have always thought it is easier to string pars on the front, but it's easier to make a birdie or two on the back. The back is much tighter and requires more accuracy off of the tee. If you stay in the fairway, however, you are rewarded with easier greens, overall. But the back also has, in my opinion, the two hardest holes, 12 and 14.

12, a par 4, is narrow off of the tee but you still want to hit a long drive because the approach is downhill to a shallow green. If you have to hit a long iron or more into the green it won't hold. To make things harder, the front right is protected by a difficult trap, and the left is spongy and your ball won't roll onto the green unless you are very lucky. Then the green itself is probably the most difficult on the back.

14 is a par 3 that has an elevated green, a deep bail out area to the right that requires incredible skill and/or luck to pitch out of (honestly, I usually putt it myself). Short there is a stream and rocks. Left is no bargain, the green doesn't hold well and it you have any hook on your shot you will see yourself hit the green, and then your ball ends up in the water. The only "safe" spot is long, the trap in the back is shallow and easy. Then to top it off, the green is difficult and different from the rest of the course.

Two pars on 12 and 14 is an achievement. Both are very capable of generating "others" on your scorecard.

That said, the thing to keep in mind on the back is the rest of the holes are all "gettable", but still challenging and interesting.

What a somewhat hidden gem; well worth the hour or so drive from the Las Vegas Strip. Overall, the course was in great shape with a nice variety of holes and exceptional greens. Fairly flat overall, but you still need to pay attention to club selection with the subtle elevation changes, especially on windy days. It was especially windy this day, but the course was still very playable. Staff was friendly and helpful.
