I'm a California native and my friend and I had an exciting outing playing 18 holes at Boulder Creek. The courses challenged your accuracy and shot shaping skills. There were multiple dog leg holes and a number of hazards that presented excitement as well. After being familiar with this course, I can't wait to enjoy this experience again. Boulder Creek, I'll see you again..

A very pretty course. Loads of bunkers which get a bit annoying. It's not if but which trap you'll land in. Fairways are hard and short. Your drives roll forever but so do your balls roll in to bunkers. The holes are all unique and challenging. You have to really work on your course playing abilities but then some holes are just wide open green spans to give you a break. Greens are short and fairly fast but fair and readable. We booked again for the next day as we knew we could play a better game and they gave us the rate for locals. Very nice.

Nice layout, from the clubhouse to the 19th hole. We booked on Golfnow and got a pretty good rate. We were paired up with two singles and had a very enjoyable round. Pace of play was good. Greens, fairways and T boxes are all in great condition. Would play again for the same price.

I am Asian American, and my handicap is in the single digits. I've been playing at Boulder Creek for more than 10 years, I've played there 6 times this year alone. Even though it's a 40 minute drive, it's one of the best courses in Vegas so I go there often.

When I found Golf Now, I booked all of my tee times through their website. I can make reservations any time of the day, and when I play by myself I can get tee times for a better price, so it's very convenient.

On March 29, I went to Boulder Creek 40 minutes early to practice with my new putter.

I went to check in with the female clerk that I haven't seen often there. She said, "Oh you paid online, so you can go to the starter." but she said it with an unfriendly tone and an unhappy look. I don't know why.

I went out and tipped the young staff member when he carried my bag to the cart, then another staff member came and put range balls in the cart. I told him that I was going to the putting and chipping greens so I didn't need range balls. At that time, the starter told me that another player was going to join and share the cart, so I thought the balls were for them.

As I was waiting for that player, the female clerk suddenly came out of the clubhouse, and started talking to the staff members about me while jerking her head in my direction. Then she told me, "If you want those range balls you need to pay $10!"

So I told her, "What? I'm going to the chipping greens. I didn't ask for those range balls." At that time, the young staff member I tipped felt uncomfortable and began walking away. The lady was then talking to another staff member while looking at me. After that, the young staff member came to me with an uncomfortable look and said "Sorry, me okay. I don't care about the balls." and then he took the range balls off the cart. The lady went back into the clubhouse without saying anything.

What the heck?! How could she be so rude to the customers? When I think about it, anyone who books through Golf Now has to pay $10 for range balls. The young staff members didn't know I booked through Golf Now, and that female clerk probably thought I was tipping them to get the range balls without paying for them.

I told her very clearly that I was going to the putting and chipping greens and that I didn't ask for any range balls. Knowing that, shouldn't she apologize to me? Some golfers are sensitive, the smallest noise can mess up their shot. Because of that lady's rude behavior to me, my whole day was ruined. She could have misunderstood, but even if she was doing her job she shouldn't show such poor attitude to the customers. In the 10 years I've played at this great golf course, I have never met such a rude employee. She needs to change her behavior towards the customers.
