Course was great staff great and the folks I got teamed up with were just great day.
have played this course when I visit the area over the past several years. The greens were of reasonable speed. The fairways appeared not to have recovered very well from fall seeding, many dry areas an low grass on most fairways.
Fun to play, great value
Enjoyed the course even though a windy day. Nice to have gps on the carts. Friendly staff. Two negatives, but not major: need lots more sand in traps, and no ball washers that I could find. Will definitely play again at this bargain price if available next time we're in the area.
Nice challenging course - greens fast, fairways need water.
Enjoyed a very windy day on the desert course. Great layout, needs some water on the fairways, but overall good value for the money and the people are Great.
Primm is a great place to play. Lakes is a terrific golf course and Desert is good. In need a a little investment, bunkers are in neglect and fairways are thin but overall a great value. Don’t pay rack rate, not worth $100
Took 5 hours and thirty minutes to play. Awful and staff in pro shop not willing to do anything. Have played this course many times and this was the exception. Normally fine at Primm. But this was not good.
Primm and proper
both courses at Primm Valley are terrific, Lakes is the better quality overall but Desert is well worth the trip. If you’re golfing in vegas do yourself a favor and make the 30 minute drive to Primm you won’t be disappointed
Much greener than we figured for end of summer-fairways great-greens even better.
Best public course and value in Vegas
As a local, I've played every single course in Vegas ad nauseum. Most other courses in town are very similar desert layouts and lined with homes. It does get old which is why I've found Primm to be one of the best public options and by far the best value. The course is beautifully tree lined and you don't feel like you're playing in the desert like most other courses in town. There are beautiful views of the mountains and no homes like many other courses in town which I hate. Challenging but fair layout for all handicaps. It is a little more of a drive to the state border but worth it. I usually stop by the Primm outlets for some shopping on the way back. The staff are some of the friendliest and most professional I've encountered in the city. The service feel of a private club. Highly recommend.
loved our round of golf. great layout. 4 sets of tee boxes. starter was especially accommodating. I made mistake on our tee time reservation so essentially we were 1 hr late. He found our name on his list, saw we were prepaid through Golf now and was able to send us out anyway. unfortunately, we were behind a foursome and had to wait much of the day. since I made the mistake on our start time, we just had to bite the bullet. all in all a great day.
Desert course- poor sand traps; good fairways and fast greens
The primm course has twon18 hole courses- the lakes and the desert. The lakes is the signature course and in better shape . Altbof 5he t boxes on the desert corse are a bit uneven : the sand traps need some attention .there is no Marshall so if you get stuck behind a slow group your hosed . But the greens and fairways are in pretty good shape and there are some challenges
What Happened to Upkeep
We played this course for the fourth time as part of a Vegas vacation. In the past it has been excellent in every way. This time before going I checked for newer reviews because early September reviews indicated a lack of maintenance, poor turf conditions and sand-less bunkers. The latest review was dated in early October and it was excellent citing successful overseeding results, quality fairways and greens and most importantly newly filled bunkers. Who wrote this I can't imagine. The fairways were spotty and the greens were thin. The bunkers were devoid of sand ( indeed one had a long dead very large bush in it) save for those on 9 and 18. Sadly in the greenside bunkers on nine the sand was just in a pile so large that someone had placed a rake in the top like a flag. There was tree and other landscape debris throughout the course. The pins clearly had not been moved in sometime resulting in ball and spike marks in a 3-4 foot radius around every hole. That said we had fun because of the course design and scenery, the perfect weather and the great clubhouse staff. Too bad about the course. I think Mr. Fazio would not be amused
The good, the bad and the ugly
The good - the girls who were the starters and the welcoming staff at the gate.
The bad - the pace of play ( we actually skipped 6 holes to get ahead of a large group that was, in the end, a full two holes behind) , and the fact that there was no Marshall to correct the situation.
The ugly - the course condition. Sand traps were more like dumps of leftover concrete. The greens were full of patches of no grass, and the fairways were full of divots bordered by long, unkempt grasses resembling farmers crops in fall.
Not worth the trip out of Vegas.
there was not anyone to monitor play thus we waited on every hole and was well over 5 hrs (not fun)
This was our first round at Primm in 3 or 4 years and found the course conditions to have been greatly improved. The only two negatives to our round was the traps are short on sand and we never saw a cart girl in 18 holes. Other wise it would have been 5 star on everything.
1st time out
Played the Lakes course a few years ago, wanted to try the Desert course. We enjoyed playing the course, there were many bunkers. I found a few of them. When playing in Primm, expect there to be wind, not severe but it is there.Considering it is a bit of a drive, it always seems a little busy, which is a good sign. They had a tournament on the other course at the time, only seen the cart girl one time, they should of had another beverage cart out, otherwise everything went smoothly.
Another great time. Course is in great shape, couldn’t do anything about the wind. Seeing a marshal now and then would be a nice touch. Cart girl was super nice. Another great day.
Rediculous Pace of Play
This was by far the slowest round of golf I've ever played in the last 25 years. 5 hours and 47 minutes. No Marshall on the course. This was after my wife and I were greated with, we can't let you tee off with two sets of clubs in one bag. So we had to rent an empty bag for $20 - for "Appearances and Pace of Play". What a joke! They need to get over themselves.
Otherwise it was a well kept course, greens and fairways were in excellent shape. Bunkers have no sand, just clay and rocks.
REALLY GREAT SHAPE
THEY JUST COMPLETED RESEEDING COURSE, IT IS JUST BEAUTIFUL. THEY ALSO JUST BOUGHT 100 TONS OF PURE WHITE SAND AND RENEWED ALL THE BUNKERS. YOU CAN'T GO WRONG HERE!
