Course is closed, sold for land value

Effective, 9-1-15, the course is closed. It was losing hundreds of thousands of dollars per year and the former owner could not sustain the losses any longer. It wasted an incredible amount of water as well. The golf course was sold for land value.

Very nice

I enjoyed the course very much. Going back Sat. so I can play the 3rd nine. It was nice because even though it's in a development you don't feel like the houses are crowding in on you. Nice course

Nice course. Good variety and challenges.

It's HOT- minimal drinking water available on the course. Place ice water jugs on every third hole. Saw cart girl one time during my round.

Noe Water In The Desert

I enjoyed the round. Greens were in good condition. I played with a member. However, We were shocked that there was no drinking water on the course - this was especially bad as the temperature was 109 in Las Vegas. The two bathroom / with fountains were clean but the water barely triclkled from the fountains. And I was not going to put mt mouth on a public faucet. The cart person only sowed up twice / the first time on our second hole when he did not need any refreshments.

This course has long carries.

Play from the right set of tee boxes for your game. The majority of the holes have long carries; if you don't want to be hitting your second shot from the hardpan move up. Once you're on the fairway though it's pretty easy. There is no water on the course. You have to buy it from the concessions or cart girl.
