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.

Close to the strip

This is what most would consider a muni type course. It is priced at a decent level to attract locals and tourists. Conditions much like a muni. Greens are ok but pock marked due to players not fixing their own ball marks. One of the retention ponds had a bunch of dead fish floating in it. Not a great selling point. The restaurant is good and a driving range is availability with a bucket included in the greens fee

Great course

This golf course gets better every time I play it, from pro shop to tee to green and beyond. The management should give lessons to its competitors???

Great Value for Locals

I play golf about once per month and had never golfed at this course. I found a great deal on Golfnow so my buddies and I decided to give it a try. The cost was super low, the course was better than expected, and we got a free lunch included afterwards and the lunch was really good - basically anything on the menu. It’s not a resort course by any means, and it’s fairly short, but definitely worth the price.

Great features, and great staff

The course is fun, but challenging. You want to bomb every shot, but if you play it smart, you will be more successful and enjoy it more.

The staff is probably the reason I consider this my "Home" course. They are exceptional, and make you feel at home.

Let Charles (Navy) and the Army Scout (I apologize, I forgot his name), in the Pro Shop know you served, for some good military camaraderie/bantering.

Had a great time

Nice course, great great shape. Greens a little fast. Some doglegs and lake aspects to a few holes you don’t normally see in Vegas. Second cuts on fairways a little long, so don’t miss. Lots of fairway elevation changes which was challenging (feet above/below ball). Undulating greens were a nice touch too, a lot of Vegas courses have the flat boring greens. Had a fun time today, will definitely come back.

First Time

Course is short, but the Dye layout makes up for it with no such thing as a flat lie shot. Staff was wonderfully attentive and genuinely friendly. Pace of play was good - 3.5 hour round; could have been even quicker except there were a couple of slower playing twosomes ahead of myself a nice and friendly local named John that I joined up with on the 8th hole. Fairways were good considering the 100 degree heat. There were a couple of crunchy spots, but they did not effect play.

Fantastic course and staff

From the time I pulled into the parking lot one of the attendants was at my car welcoming me to the course and carrying my bag to my cart that had my name on it, very impressed. I checked in and was told my round includes lunch in the restaurant, heck yeah!! Course was beautiful! Greens are a bit tricky, the pace was great, tee boxes clean, refreshment truck was seen frequently, and the meal at the end was fantastic!
For me golfing is an experience, and my experience was awesome! Thank you.
