About

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

Good course

Except for the greens the course is in good shape. Greens recovering from some kind of infection according to staff.

Greens Need Some TLC

I have played Desert Pines many times and like the layout. Overalll I had a good time but the greens were in the worst shape I have ever seen there. I chalk it up to the heat and look forward to replaying it in the fall when it cools off.

Terrible Greens

Honestly, course had a very cool set up, very challenging, and keeps you on your toes. Then you get to the green and the greens look like 101 Dalmatians and ruined my POV of the course. I wouldn’t go back or recommend anyone else to unless those greens get fixed

Fun course - Greens currently in poor condition

I've played this course a half dozen times over the past 3 years and have always really enjoyed it. Still a nice course but something has damaged virtually all of the greens.

Not sure if it was the heat or insect but they are riddled with dead spots. Still rolled better than expected but they are really rough.

I'll be playing it again but it won't be for a few months to see if the greens have rebounded with cooler weather.

Staff as always was excellent.

This course was in great condition!

We had a wonderful experience at Desert Pines on Friday. We were greeted curbside and the clubs were whisked away to the cart while we settled everything in the Pro Shop. The tee time was set for 11:54 but since we arrived only twenty minutes before tee time, we were very graciously permitted any leeway we needed. I had planned on having lunch & drinks & then taking advantage of the range balls to warm up, so the staff was wonderfully accommodating. The restaurant staff were likewise very friendly & accommodating to every desire we requested. I felt like we were treated like members of a country club rather than the transient weekend vacationers that we actually were. The course was wonderfully manicured and every hole beautifully framed with landscaping & golf features. The greens rolled true & moderately fast. Of course the afternoon in Vegas was hot, which we expected but the course maintained cold water on at least half of the holes, It seemed. This has been my most enjoyable golf in Las Vegas!

Narrow short course in perfect shape

This is a narrow course that is relatively simple to navigate. But greens are undulating and tough to read. We played fast and easy. Not a tough course but still challenging

Hidden Jewel

I am amazed that this course does not get more play than it does. The layout is excellent, the greens rolling fast and true the fairways are excellent. The staff is very very friendly and professional. The pace of play was excellent I played with a gentleman that had the same type of game I had, we did not rush we had a good even pace, and played the course in 3 hours during prime time tee off time. I could give this course 10 Stars if I could!
