I actually played this course at 7:54 am on New Year's Day, but there was an hour frost delay. I also used their facilities to take a shower, but they were not expecting people to actually use their showers. No lights were working and the water was barely on, let alone hot. But I managed. Played with two nice guys and they gave me recommendations for other courses in Las Vegas. Next time I would look for a little cheaper rate.

First time golfing in Vegas and it was a great time. Great layout and excellent conditions, especially in late December. Couldn’t ask for more. Used rental clubs and was happy with them.

There can be some very tight fairways so be careful when tying to kill your tee shot over accuracy. Would definitely go again and recommend.

On many holes you have to hit it straight otherwise you'll be in the trees or on the other fairway and have to go over the trees to get back on the hole you were playing. They have holes that water comes into play on your approach shots to the green.

This is a great course to play.

well maintained course with good greens and tees, fairways are a little sparse in spots but over all not bad. If you like a course that doesn't require a driver for your second shot try this one , worth playing.

Desert Pines is a fun course with an interesting layout. The course is not long. However, it has great mountain and Vegas Strip views. There is a nice amount of water throughout the course which adds to the beauty.

Fairways are nice but tight, and the ruff is just that.

Greens were very fast and rolled great (be cautions with the speed).

I was a lil concerned because the course look so brown on some pictures. But it's greener than expected and a beauty of a course for the price. A pleasant surprise for me during a vacation on Thanksgiving break.

Layout is ok, strategic golf required, a pete dye so lots of sand and water. Guess they didn't overseed this year and it shows, fairways are flat, almost appearing compressed or steam rolled, no nice cushy lies here, the worst looking grass out here for this time of year, that I've seen.

This was my first time playing this course and I was really impressed. The staff was amazing and the course was very well manicured. It’s not a long course but very well designed. It’s still going to be a nice challenge
