Primm Valley Golf Club boasts two championship courses designed by Tom Fazio. On the Desert Course, Fazio fully utilized the rugged landscape and scenic views offered by the mountains in the distance. Like many of his designs, the Desert Course blends seamlessly into the beautiful surroundings. It is a straightforward layout with no hidden tricks but there are several strategically placed bunkers lurking beside the undulating greens to provide some challenges. The golf course also requires a few tricky forced carries. The fairways are generous and offer some room for error, making the course more appealing to beginners. In addition to the two golf courses, Primm Valley also offers extensive practice facilities that include a double-ended driving range, target greens, practice putting greens, and chipping and pitching greens with sand bunkers.

Stay Away - Not following Covid Guidelines

The Primm Valley Golf Course is not following Covid Guidelines for social distancing. Their website has no information on how they are keeping people safe during Covid, like most courses in the area and the pro-shop said nothing about riding together when we made the reservation or when we paid. They are forcing people to ride two people to a cart when none of the players are part of the same house hold. The guys who clean your clubs at the end, came right up close to us without wearing masks. Rakes are in bunkers for anyone to touch. I was on the first tee with my ball tee'd up, and an employee drove up and rudely told us we would have to pair up on a cart, interrupting my pre-shot routine. I have played over 30 rounds around Vegas during Covid at public and private facilities, and never been asked to share a cart (even with those ridiculous plastic dividers that don't fully protect you when you are sitting a foot away). They said the only way I could ride solo was to pay an additional $25.
The course was in very poor shape with many bare dirt spots on the greens, fairways and tee boxes. Plus there were lots of large piles of horse/donkey crap around the greens, in the fairways, and on the cart paths, with no effort to clean them up. IN SUMMARY this course is: Ignoring Covid Guidelines, is in poor condition not worth the $59 local greens fees. I will not play at Primm again with so many much better option closer to Vegas.

Soft, wet and dirty

Sounds like a fun combo, but not for a golf course. There were patches on the fairways and on the greens where there was no grass. Just patches of dirt or mud. My beautiful white balls kept getting chunks of mud stuck to them. The ground was really wet near the green. As you walked to the ball, you could hear the water squish and the ground felt really soft. On one approach to the green, the ball actually went into the green. Half of the ball was in the ground. Parts of the course were really nice but others looked like crap. I got the impression that at one point this was a really nice course but now it's kinda run down.

Good Time

Course was pretty good condition , pace of play was horrendous for the heat & Covid times but that would be more of an issue with the groups in front of us.. Over 5 hrs to complete. Kitchen closes at 1:30 , but the Desert course does not pass the clubhouse except for 1 & 18 . Why is the Lawnmower running on a sunday mid day ? dude would not get out of the way , tight fairway

green side condition remained as a con

I like Lake course better than desert course but due to overseeding, only have to play at Desert.

Front nine is easier than back nine but less interesting. green and it's side needed repair.

They said Lake would open from Oct.1st.

Golf paradise

Two great, but distinct golf courses. The new owners have done a great job getting the greens back, they are consistent and fast. Looking forward to many more rounds here.
