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.

Great course

The course layout is great, greens were in good condition and rolled true, bunkers were not in good shape though, it ,looks like they have not turned the sand over in a while, otherwise the course is great and the staff were awesome.

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.

Somewhat disappointed

I played the Desert course on September 28. I was told that the course was coming out of overseeding. While the course was in reasonably good condition I expected it to be in superb condition. Some of the greens had some dead spots and one green had a plug/cup pulled out and an irrigation flag next to it. On multiple greens the pin flags were torn. Some were severely torn. I know from experience that these flags are replaced during overseeding at most courses.

We received a good deal to play Primm Valley Golf/$100 for a foursome. It is such a long drive to play this course it would need to be in a lot better condition for me to get out there again. CoyoteSprGC is a course that's a similar distance from my house and is usually in better condition.

One more thing I bought a drink in the clubhouse. I asked if there was a drink cart on the course the girl said yes. The drink cart came out on the first hole. I did not need a drink then. We never saw her again. Very disappointed! No last call!

Good Course

Started with breakfast here, good food and friendly staff. Always wanted to play here, very quick drive from Las Vegas. Course was in decent shape, some challenging holes. Greens were pretty good and rolled nicely. Not much fluff in the bunkers, the sand plays more like a waste area. Plenty of water handed out or available from the starter. Dont recall seeing a beverage cart on the course. Would come back again.

Pace of play issues

Our round on the desert course went off without a hitch. Some of the greens are patchy due to winter conditions. Friends playing the lake course were held up on every hole and the group in front would not let them through. The course needs a Marshall to maintain pace of play. Lots of people around to load your clubs and clean them after your round. (Anything to make a couple bucks,) but pace of play is more important than wiping a little grass of the groves in my irons. Get a Marshall, at least on the weekends when it is busy.

Solid test

Enjoyed playing the course. Used a Groupon. Full range was nice to oil the swing after no golf due to Northern winter. Greens were good speed, but some greens had damaged patches near the edges but didn't effect play. Each hole was unique. Would play again!

Good value course

Booked on a hot deal. Course layout was nice. In the middle of the desert. Fairways and rough were nice and green. The only issue I had with the course is the greens were a little slow and bumpy but not that bad.

Good but inconsistent

Fairways were a bit long and some greenside areas did not give a clean lie. The weather was excellent and the staff were friendly. Shotgun was finishing up around my start, so the pace was really good after six holes. I'm a bit disappointed I didn't get to practice before start because the sprinklers were on. I had better course conditions when I paid half the price for this course, so this course is either a hit or a miss. Overall, I still like this course.
