The front 9 was done in the average time of 2 hours 15 minutes until we hit the back nine back up at par 5 11th hole with 4 foursome's on the hole. We finished 3 holes in an hour and had quit at the par 3 14th with 5 foursome's waiting in the shade. To finish all 18 it would have taken 4 hours on the back 9. The 2 players I was with had to be at work by 6pm and it wasn't fair to them because they play once a week. The Ranger was apologetic but they knew the hot weather was coming and took any money they could until the summer draught. Not fair!!! We would really like to be compensated.

The course, as always, was in great shape. Fairways were manicured and the greens ran true. The staff at check in were awesome. I had a challenge unrelated to this round and they took care of it without any hesitation. The course was busy and a bit backed up on the first tee. Play was a bit slow, but it was a perfect day, so who cares. Also the views of the city are great.

We played Highland Falls on a recent golf outing in Las Vegas. The course is in Summerlin, an easy 30 minute drive from the strip. Greens fees were around $80, which is very reasonable for the Vegas area.

Similar to many other courses in Las Vegas, Highland Falls winds through a master planned community. There are no areas where two fairways run side by side. Highland falls is laid out on a slope, with almost 400’ of elevation change from the highest to lowest point on the course. This means holes run up and down hill. The design takes this into account avoiding long par 4s that run uphill. The 14th tee features an outstanding view of the Las Vegas valley. The fairways are wide enough to accommodate the occasional wayward drive. The greens are generally large and have some not-so-subtle slopes that keep putting interesting.

The course conditions were good for our round, though the greens had recently been punched. The fairways were in good condition. Winds in the 15-30 mph range on the day we played made the course play a little tougher. Pace of play was OK, though we had to wait for the group ahead of us on almost every shot.

The staff was helpful and the clubhouse has a nice pro shop and restaurant. Overall, our group enjoyed the day at Highland Falls enough that we are planning to return to this course on our next trip.

Thank you so very much for coming and playing! We appreciate the kind feedback. The old saying is; if you can't play golf in the wind then you can't play golf in Vegas! We look forward to having you back!

Highland Falls in Summerlin has a nice layout with great mountain and Las Vegas Strip views. GolfNow rate was the nonresident so I could have done better having my son, a Clark County resident, get the rounds. Offline drives are saved on most holes with slopes sending the ball toward the fairway.
