Had to play front nine twice because of the extremely slow play
Good mid winter round
Course is in north Las Vegas but is easy to get to off of the 515. Distance is a little short at 6200 yards from the tips. Layout makes up for it as many of the holes are tight and require some accuracy. Staff is very friendly. The practice facility is also very good. Pace of play was outstanding. We had a sub 4 hour round with an 11:30 am tee off time.
Staff was great from the pro shop to the starter to the bar staff. Overall a GREAT EXPERIENCE!
Great experience despite terrible weather
We had a great experience at Desert Pines despite the atrocious weather. Everyone we met (pro-shop, starter, bar staff|) were so helpful and friendly. Course was in decent condition considering the torrential rain. Layout is short but if you want a good quick round close to the strip this is hard to beat.
Fun little course
Had a great time with my daughter. I am a slightly above average golfer and she is slightly below. We both had a wonderful time on this course. It is a very tight layout. But, hard to go wrong with the overall experience.
Great course and pace was nice. Narrow but challenging.
Loved this course. Tight fairways but in very good condition. The staff was awesome!
We played this course today and we’re paired up with a regular player at the course that had some influence with the employees. Everything was ok with the round until hole number 9 when the course starter was also paired with us. These two “gentlemen” apparently have no idea about golf etiquette as they consistently took shots out of turn and walked over our lines on the greens multiple times. Instead of calling them out and causing a scene, we decided to pack up and leave after 11 holes. I would’ve really liked to see the entire course, but when the fun of the round has expired, we decided to call it quits rather than spend the rest of the round in an uncomfortable situation. The course was nice but it is apparent that the regulars on the course do want want “new” players experiencing their turf.
good mogal green, difficult to read.
Every things is very good except too many unfilled dimwitted fairway.
Do or Dye? A little bit of both!
Desert Pines is located center Las Vegas. Pete Dye is the credited designer and there are elements of his designs that are famous and are incorporated here.
The course is well known to locals. Green fees favor them over visitors, especially on weekends.
The practice facilities include a double-decker driving range and practice greens.
The course has some quirky holes; berms running through the middle of the fairways, large waste areas, green complexes close enough together that from the fairways give one wonder on which to play.
All that being said, I play this course annually. Staff is great. Pace of play is consistent. Course conditions for fairways and greens are good.
A quick transfer from the Strip, it is a good course to hone your game prior to tackling some of the big courses in town.
A "frost" delay for 20 min turned into 40 min, with my son and I following a group of three foursomes who decided to all play together. So a 20 minute wait on each box. Not fun, course nice but maintenance around greens and the greens needs to be improved.
Won't play there again.
Too cramped and crowded
We teed off last group on Fri in Nov. We would have only made it thru 13 holes, except we turned around and played the front again, so we made 16 holes, barely! No ranger, cuz I think it was so packed there's nothing they could do anyway. Challenging layout. Very short, thankfully, cuz it's narrow as h×××! Fairways in great shape, but many greens scarred and rough. B- for slow play
Played at Desert Pines on a nice day last week. The course was moderately easy and in relatively good condition overall. The greens were nice but the fairways had a lot of divot marks that weren't repaired. I'm guessing that the course gets a lot of play. There were some pitch marks on the greens that hadn't been repaired also. A nice course near downtown Las Vegas and a decent value at $79.
Greens condition good
Some greens had brown spots but not bad enough to impair ability to putt the ball. Did not even notice it on virtually all of them. Overall good conditions.
