Rating 75.1

Boulder Creek Golf Club offers 27 holes of championship golf. There are three different nines that each have a unique character, they can be played in different 18-hole combinations. The Coyote Run/Eldorado Valley combination is both challenging and playable with a tough front nine and a more player-friendly back. The front nine is routed across an arroyo-covered landscape, which can sometimes provide errant shots with a variety of scoring opportunities. The subtle but tricky elevation changes can work in your favor but they can also be punishing. The back nine is the shortest of the three but you would certainly never guess it. There are plenty of opportunities for long drives and golfers will also enjoy unobstructed shots from the lush fairways. There are strategically placed bunkers throughout and water comes into play on a few holes.

Boulder Creek

The course is in great shape. We finished our round in 3 hours and 45 minutes. We did not wait at all.
The staff was very friendly. Unfortunately we had to wear masks inside the club but that is the governors orders.

Nice course

The course was in very good shape, from tee to green. I would recommend the course book as there are many blind shots and a he book gives a lot of information, prior to the shot. I will definitely play here again.

Three good nines

Boulder Creek is one of the few good courses on the east side of town and definitely worth the drive if youre going to play in the Henderson area.

Desert Gem

Great course 30 minutes off the Strip. 3 nines that offer challenge from the tips with 5 different tees to choose from. It's quiet, relaxing and fun to play.

Great Course

My wife and I were in Vegas last week, this was our third round of the week and it could not have been more enjoyable. Beautiful course, great practice facility, friendly staff. If you are in the area, take the time to get a round in @ Boulder Creek.

Transition Time

It’s the time of year when the courses are transitioning from winter to summer conditions so greens are a bit rough. However we always enjoy playing Boulder Creek and make it a point to include it in our Vegas Golf Schedule.

windy day

Most locals bailed with 25 mph winds. Course in good shape. Even playing extra ball about 1/2 the time still got around in 2 hrs, which made for an enjoyable pace of play.

Poor Condition of Greens Spoiled a Great Course

I picked this up as a Hot Deal through GolfNow. I had been planning to play the course anyway and the deal came along just as I was ready to book (the day before playing). I got the day and tee time that worked best for me. Kudos to GolfNow.

This was my first time playing Boulder Creek. The views are impressive, with the desert valley stretched out beneath the course. Check in was easy and staff were friendly enough, but they were clearly more used to dealing with course regulars.

The driving range is huge and there are plenty of short game practice areas. This is where I first encountered the poor condition of the greens. They mere a mottled colour, mix of dark and light greens and bumpy would be an understatement. The starter let me know they are in between seasons and have two different kinds of grass on the greens. It was terrible to putt on - bumpy, slow and inconsistent.

The course itself was a classic desert layout - lots of washes, arroyos, coolees to play out of that required a golfer to play their entire bag. The locals I played with described it as a mild day wind wise - which I calcluated as a 2-3 club wind. This made the uphill 180 yd par 3 into the wind pretty challenging, but made the downwind number one handicap hole getable.

Each cart has a detailed GPS, but the bright sun makes it almost unreadable. Plenty of water on the course and beverage carts on each side kept hydration easy.

I like this course and would play here again, but would not pay the full rate unless the greens were in better condition.

Poor Greens

The course layout and staff were good. The greens are in transition and we’re inconsistent. I was very frustrated and wanted to leave the course halfway through my round.
