The 14 hole is the signature view hole. Greens are excellent, fairways in very good condition. Driving range is a little lacking. I would recommend.

Being winter, the course is in surprisingly good condition. The greens are fast with lots of undulations. The views of the Strip are great, especially from 14th tee.

The experience of playing this course could be improved in my opinion (and my partner's) if the person who places the pins actually keeps in mind that many of the greens seem to be rock hard and don't hold a shot. Therefore, if it's an elevated green as they almost all are and you put the pin within about 10 feet of the front, how in the heck is a golfer supposed to have a fair chance of getting close. I hit 8 iron, 9 iron and even wedges that would just roll all the way to back of green and sometimes even off and into the bunkers which were almost always moist and hard packed. Some greens are so hard that shots don't even leave a ball mark. Then, on one hole 530+ yds, the pin was placed on a precipice so that if your putt goes more than three feet beyond the hole, it rolls another forty feet down instead of stopping. Seemed sadistic but not unusual. for some reason in Las Vegas, as if course superintendents are terrified of anyone having fair chance to make pars or occasional birdie.

Very nice course with some great views of the mountains and Las Vegas. The course was in great shape as I have found with most Del Webb courses I have played. We played the round in under 4 hours which is great. The whole course was in excellent shape. Also has very nice practice facilities. I highly recommend this course. I might also say that a couple of holes require that you have played the course before, I was lucky and played with someone that plays the course a few times a week.

This course will test you entire golf game arsenal...play smart and driving the ball long isn’t always the best play...Ball placement is key when hitting fairways and greens. Greens will feel fast and will also make you feel like your ball is running across sand! Beautiful scenery, amazing water holes, and breathtaking views of mountains and the Las Vegas strip.

This was my first time playing this course. Upon check in, we were greeted by club pro. He was very friendly and told us we could tee off anytime we were ready. Other workers were just as friendly. The course was in great shape, and greens were true and fast. The biggest thing that made this course stand out was that the staff treated you as if you were a member, not someone who booked at a discount

We took quick vacation to Vegas, and found this course on Golf Now, a fantastic place to play and for only $55 for both of us!

Great Layout, in the pretty hills of Summerlin, not busy, difficult at times, so a great place to play, everyone really friendly.

We will golf there again!

Had great weather for late November. No wind and mid 70's. Course was moving along quite well. Had a late tee time, 1:14, wasn't sure if we were going to get all 18 in but we did. Dad and I are far from good golfers. We actually didn't even keep score. I was fond of the bathroom locations on the course. Placed well. I enjoyed this course and will be playing there again as I am a local.

I have played this course several times in the past few months, The course is in great shape and the staff is always friendly. If I have a complaint this time, it would be the pace of play. Our group got tied up behind a 5-some and they were not inclined to let anyone play through. Course etiquette. Hopefully a one time deal.
