About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 71
Length 6222 yards
Slope 137
Rating 71.1

Desert Pines Golf Club is often referred to as "The Pinehurst" of Las Vegas. It offers a Carolina sandhills experience, yet is conveniently located just minutes from downtown or the Strip. This Dye design features thousands of mature pine trees lining the well-groomed fairways where white sand bunkers protect large, undulating, bent grass greens. Because of the large number of pine trees, often times this course is cooler than other courses in the heat of the summer. Although there are no forced carries, water comes into play on 9 of the 18 holes.

First Time

It was my first time golfing a real course and I had a wonderful experience. Staff was great and very helpful. The course was challenging but not impossible for a beginner to play. Beautiful scenery and Course is well maintained. I didn’t know that the round came included with complimentary lunch at the end. That was an unexpected treat. Great value for price paid. I would recommend to a friend and will definitely play again!

Very Slow. No marshals

We were asked to go out early. Big mistake. Behind some very slow foursomes. No marshals to keep things moving. Greens not in good condition.

Well maintained golf course

Desert Pines GC is close to the strip, fairways are narrow which adds to the challenge, it’s well maintained, friendly staff. The meal & beer included with the green fee hit the spot after a round of golf.

Nasty

Played the front nine in almost 3 1/2 hours cause of how horrible the pace of play was plus there was no starter to adjust it.., almost every hole is the same flat and horrible fairways, I liked leaving the course more than playing the course. Trust won’t ever go back.

Good course and quick play

We had a nice round, pace of play was great finished in 4hrs, the course conditions were ok, fairways are painted, greens had lots of poana but the ball rolled smoothly. Traps had real sand, think I tested every one.
All in all a great round for the money.

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.

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.

Negative response

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.
