Not only was the course beautiful, and the staff friendly and accommodating, but we were paired with 2 gentlemen that were so delightful (regulars at the course), that we had a even better round! Thank you.

Not as advertised online

All the regular tees were being over seeded and moved up shortening the course considerably. There was no indication online when making the reservation that this was the condition, only that the course doesn’t over seed for the Winter months which supposedly improves the Summer grass conditions.

Great Value Fun Course

Nice course and convenient for me and my buddies. Since it’s darn hot the prices are super low and the course isn’t in perfect condition but still pretty decent. Course is in a quiet area, staff is super friendly, and price is right. The width of the fairways is good for us who tend to hit balls out of bounds occasionally

Absolutely NOT WORTH IT! They screwed up not overseeding this year!!!

Just played yesterday - May 4 - and just like all winter long - the bermuda is not growing in and they should have overseeded with bent or rye for the winter. The course is terrible, totally hardpan with almost no grass between the club and ball anywhere. And around the greens its a mixture of almost bare ground, patches of Bermuda - and WEEDS, so don't even think about getting the ball up and down. I don't care if the grass is gonna grow in around June or July - that basically makes their "season" about 3 months long in total. They need to bite the bullet and overseed. All the other courses in the area - Sienna, Arroyo, even Highland Falls - all have great fairways and greens because they overseed in the fall so the late spring grasses match up with the new summer grasses. Not so with Palm Valley. Palm Valley is supposed to be the HOME OF THE SNGA for christ's sake. What an embarrassment!!!

Just to reiterate - I clearly was not talking about the greens. Palm Valley, please re-read what I wrote. I never mentioned the greens and have a full understanding of aeration. Stop skirting the issue - you need to overseed the FAIRWAYS and AROUND THE GREENS in the fall.

Decent Course but Conditions Lacked

I thought that the course was fairly decent with an average layout. There are definitely some fun holes to play and it has potential. The pace of play was excellent as we finished the round in just over 3 hours. However, one thing I could not overlook were the dreadful conditions of the course. There were patches of dead grass on all the fairways and they have just aerated the greens, which I was unaware of at the time of booking. What I do not understand is why they didn't take care of the aeration during the 5 week closure and instead had them aerated upon re-opening. I would consider going back but Highland Falls is a much better play in the Golf Summerlin network.

Decent Course....Conditions Were Lacking

The layout was decent and it is a good course that is not too difficult to play. However, the greens were recently aerated which I was unaware of before playing and some fairways seemed to be in need of water. There are some fun holes and for a decent price it's a good play, but Highland Falls is a better play on the Golf Summerlin network.

Like playing on a pool table

This garbage of allowing the whole course to go dormant is a joke , they paint the grass green on the fairways the only problem is that there is NO GRASS , it used to be a great course now it’s a dump , you get what you pay for no water no grass

Overseed Or Lose Business - NOT KIDDING!!!

Makes no sense you don't oversee this course - no matter what you say, you're charging healthy green fees for a course that has no grass. And this is NOT "dormant Bermuda". I've lived in other places that have dormant Bermuda and you can still get grass under your ball, it's just brown in that case. Not so with your course. It's the best layout of the three in Sun City and I know a lot of people who will never play here again in the winter (which let's face it, growing season for Bermuda is only 6 months even in Vegas, so that leaves another 6 where it's unplayable). I was planning to buy a membership but will look elsewhere. The course is UNPLAYABLE, like hitting off of a sidewalk, and there is NO GRASS around the greens, so you can't score there either. STAY AWAY!!!

Further to this previous review I decided to try the course again, now May 4th. Same deal, the grass has STILL not grown in and the fairways are sparse and hard as a rock. Around the greens it's a mix of bare ground, weeds and patches of weak Bermuda. This is a completely FAILED experiment and an embarrassment to the SNGA, of which Palm Valley is their home course. I don't think this Bermuda grass will ever take, even in mid-summer. And with that, this gives you what, about a three month golf season at best? This is RIDICULOUS. Overseed or lose even more players.

I think this "review" was written by the course. There is no grass there, not "dormant Bermuda" - stay away and make it clear to them that their business will suffer. It's not a golf course, more like a sidewalk,

avoid at all costs

Played with my golf group(4) out of San Diego, ranging handicap from a 3 to a 9. Pictures online and on their website made it look amazing with a great layout. When we showed up the starter told us they did not overseed this year and they laid sod down that was now dormant. This track has 0 green left on it, everything is dead and or dormant which has its advantages and disadvantages. We were consistenly hitting into the group ahead of us because of the rollout from the dry conditions. 2 of us hit a 380 yard drive on the first par 5 and we were just stunned. Rock hard conditions meant we couldn't spin the ball under 100yards because hitting down on the ball was risking injury to our wrists, hands and clubs. Had to get creative with running the ball up to the green. Just avoid at all costs until the grass comes back. The course has potential as most of the houses don't come into play, it was a shame that the course didn't have a lick of green grass anywhere.

Hello Steve,

We do appreciate that you came out to play and apologize if it was a surprise to you that the course was not overseeded this year. We do understand the challenge a dry desert course can be in the wintertime and are very sorry if this negatively impacted your round. We do hope you come back again when the course is not dormant.
