Spanish Trail Country Club is a 27-hole golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. Founded in 1984, the club is one of the oldest in Las Vegas. The holes are divided into three nines, which can be played in different 18-hole combinations. The Canyon/Lakes Course is the longest of the three combinations and it begins with the most difficult of the nines. The Canyon is a desert-style course with a final stretch of holes that will test even the best players. The seventh through ninth holes feature a bevy of hazards, ending with an elevated green surrounded by cavernous bunkers. As you could have guessed from the name, the back nine, the Lakes, has water coming into play on six holes. Due to the fast and undulating greens throughout the entire golf course, accuracy on your approaches is key.

Joined this country club recently, and am so glad I did. The Junior Executive membership is an excellent deal. It's a convenient straight shot down Tropicana from my work so it's a rare that I'm unable to fit in at least 9 holes. Being able to play every day has improved my game considerably. There is no shortage of excellent clubs in Clark County, of course, but if Spanish Trail is convenient for you then there's no need to join a more far-flung club.

There are three different 9-hole courses that can be played in different combinations to create three 18 hole courses. The Canyon/Lakes combo is my favorite and the most challenging, but don't sleep on Sunrise either; it's still quite challenging and scenic, especially the 9th hole. The tee boxes are well-placed; a beginner will have a great time playing from the greens and an experienced golfer will find shooting the tips quite challenging.

The staff are incredibly nice and helpful. Hard to single out any specific person because everyone has immaculate customer service 100% of the time. The other club members have been invariably friendly and welcoming

From reading the reviews it seems the club was briefly open to the public, apparently to its detriment. It's private again, and the problems stemming from increased foot traffic are now non-existent. The fairways and greens are in impeccaple condition. If solitude is your thing, this is your place. Once in a while I'll see another player/group on the course but it happens so rarely as to be remarkable.

As this is once again a private club, you'll need to be accompanied by a member. If you're presented with the opportunity to play here, don't pass it up. And if you have time, play all 27 holes.

First time played and really recommend other Las Vegas courses. You have too pay $5.00 p/p for water and range balls which other courses give you for free. Would not return to this course.

There are some very fun holes among the tree lined fairways. And you will find yourself in precarious positions as well! It was a very enjoyable round and I lost several balls in some very pretty water Features! They were so fun and beautiful I didn’t mind!

I have played at this gem of a course 4 times now, this time I played Canyon then Lakes. Both 9’s were in great condition especially the greens which were fast but fair. I got my single slot on the morning of play on a Hot Deal on Golf now- very lucky to get the price I did , pin positions were challenging . Please if you get the chance play this course it’s only 10 mins from the Strip.

I really enjoyed this course. It's a nice layout with some pretty challenging approach shots and undulating greens. The greens were average speed but the slope on the greens made for some interesting chips and putts.

This course just gets better... the fairways and greens were in super shape, and it is mostly cleaned up and tended from it's winter issues... still some repairs underway but maintenance is evident. Only real negative was the sand traps... mostly very little sand over clay so a "real" sand shot did not happen very often.... also, major rocks/stones in the traps which could be should be raked out... lousy to dent a club playing the game.

Played the course on Mother’s Day. We were a twosome following a foursome. We waited for almost every shot, but sill completed the round in under 4 hours. It is a fun layout, not a desert course per se, most of the rough was grass. After playing it, would like to return to play again with knowledge gained from this round. The rate we paid was $65 per player including cart. They had a $5 per person charge for range balls and GPS on the cart. If you are looking for a great country club experience, play this course.
