Type Resort
The Lakes Course is one of two championship courses designed by Tom Fazio at Primm Valley Golf Club. It was the club's original layout before it was joined by the Desert Course a year later. As its name would imply, the Lakes Course features an intricate system of lakes and rivers weaving through the layout and coming into play on 11 holes. The layout is challenging but playable with elevation changes and strategically placed bunkers that are balanced by large greens and wide, player-friendly fairways. One of the golf course's most memorable holes is the par-5 second. This challenging 530-yard hole plays around a massive lake but with an accurate second shot, it is reachable in two. There is also water the left of the green and a bunker in front.

Course in good early winter season shape!!

Course seems to be in improved condition from when I played a year ago. There was alot of ground crew noise, and course repair going on then. Played both Desert and Lake 18's. Have played them many times before. Always a pleasure. However I would not play it without golfnow hot deal price, or a local discount. Just to far out of the way. A beautiful layout(a good challenge, as Pro AM senior qualifiing for senior tour is next weekend can attest too). Excellent driving range w as many balls as you care to hit , and very friendly staff!!! THANKS Primm Valley!!

BUGS!!!

Played Primm Lakes course on the way home from a Mesquite/Vegas golf outing. The staff was friendly. The layout was good, taking advantage of the elevation changes they have. The conditions were very good for August in the middle of the desert.

The only downside was the number of mosquitoes. They'd buzz in your ear, or fly in your eyes while making a swing. A couple days later, my arms and legs were covered in bites. It was so bad that I quit after 9 holes.

I didn't have any bug repellent in my bag. If you choose to play Primm Valley, make sure you have something to ward off the bugs.

a good play

For the middle of January the course was in great shape. Unfortunately, it was a wet, cool day. Hopefully next time I play this course it is a bit warmer and dryer. If you are in the area check it out.

Fine course in benign conditions

This course can be a wind tunnel and a little dry, but when I played, it was in fine shape. Very tight fairway lies and smooth undulating greens.

Hidden gem

It's our second time playing at the Lakes. We as a family were here back in January this year and played both Desert and Lakes and loved it.

An absolutely great value for the money! You will love the opening hole. Well we all do!

We are coming back again when we visit the sin city.

Well managed

The staff was very friendly and helpful.

They provided bottled water which is helpful since there are no drinking water containers on the course.

Likewise, there did not appear to be any ball washing capability on any of the holes.

The course was in good condition but there may be some ice on the greens even at 11am or later in the day where the sun has not reached yet.

They layout of the course was interesting. We saw a coyote on the first and second holes looking for its lunch.

primm is back

The course is back to the excellent conditions it once was happy to say. The Green were plush carpets with great speed and rolled true. The Fairways were perfect with great contour and good roll. Complete turnaround as far as conditions from when I played in the summer. .Love the course, great design and very challenging,

Wow what a great valye

The Links course was immaculate the fairways and greens pristine the value of the course for the money was outstanding it is the best course I have played in several months based on the quality of the fairways and greens and a supply.

I would recommend this golf course, and I have to several friends this past weekend, to play this course every time they come to Las Vegas it is a great value and the conditions of the course were immaculate

lakes course worth the time

Primm has two courses- the lakes and the desert. The lakes course in the premier course and in much better condition than the desert, The fairways are lush and the greens are in good condition.

Be aware that Primm gets windy and it you have a little breeze in las Vegas you may have twenty mile per hour garbage at primm,

The tenth hole was not marked well and it took a bit to find it. There is no marshall so if you get stuck behind a slow group - not much you can do.

Overall the course is worth the drive- about 30 minutes from Vegas.

The kitchen closes early and the 19th hole shut down at 330 which seemed a bit early

Thank you for your kind words and feedback, James. We do actively monitor the pace of play from the clubhouse via GPS. When a group falls behind, we dispatch staff members from the clubhouse to address slow groups individually. While the marshal is not on the course full time, we assure you that we are constantly monitoring and addressing the pace of play to make sure your experience is enjoyable. With that said, thank you again for playing Primm Valley Golf Club and we're glad to hear that we were worth the drive. Come back and see us again soon!

Is this the same golf course?

I heard Primm was under new management and conditions have improved. Could not believe my eyes. The Lakes course is immaculate. Way better than any course in town. Guy in the shop said they will be raising the rates soon and I can see why. I will be back very soon. Drive is only 30 minutes to save $$$$. Great deal.
