I play this course every time I visit Las Vegas which is once a year as I travel from the Uk.

Normally I would play it 3 or 4 times during my stay in Vegas. It is (was) one of our favourites.

However something has gone badly wrong since I visited last year,the course is in appalling condition,fairways are very patchy as are the greens,there are foot golf holes on every hole? Large holes with a flagstick,indicating that this place has run out of money.

Serious decline from a year ago,we won’t be visiting again Iam sorry to say.

The course was Ok as a muni course, but when I read other reviews, I assumed this was more of a resort course. It's not! The course conditions were fair for a muni, the driving range was pretty poor even for a muni since it was all chewed up.

The staff was great, but beware of reviews. There is no way to interpret the reviews based on context. Giving this course a 5-star rating is very misleading, when a course like Paiute will also get 5-stars, and deservedly so.

I assume those who gave this course a 5-star rating are generally playing muni courses and not resort courses, which most courses in Henderson and Las Vegas are. So be careful when making your evaluation of a course based on a reviewers rating and don't make the same mistake I made.

I was looking for another good resort course in Henderson since I played many of the other courses already, and this course had many stars.

Understand that this is a muni course and NOT a resort course. The amenities you are used to with a resort course and the general course conditions will not be found here at Chimera.

And let me be clear, I am not berating Chimera as a golf course. I just issuing a warning to others that reviews of golf courses can be very very misleading as to the quality of the course. And if you are looking for something specific, do additional research outside of Golf Advisor to make sure that the reviews in Golf Advisor are consistent with what you want.

Also, having the GPS screen on the golf course issue a warning about peeing in public is not something you will normally see on a quality resort course.

I played this course as a single on Jun 18, 2018. My tee time was at 10:56 am. Round took 4:15 to play. Course was in mostly great shape. Greens were not smooth but rolled very well. Course staff was abit disorganized upon check in but set me up with a cart. They were very friendly. I did not notice the rudeness that was mentioned in other reviews but to be fair, i did not stay for a drink in the bar after my round. I would definitely recommend this course, especially if you can get it in a hot deal, which i did. Overall good experience.

Course was in great shape. Rough got a little tricky some times since it was so thick. Greens were soft enough to land a few without them skipping off. Hard to find greens like that in Vegas.

Superb value on GolfNow. I called the pro shop and they quoted me greens fees nearly double what I paid on golf now.

Wonderful staff. Could improve on the driving range so you can hit off the grass. Putting green rather small but nice. Overall condition of the course is phenomenal. If they could cut the tea boxes a bit shorter and speed up the greens would be the best course in Las Vegas for the money. I will definitely go back.

I cannot provide enough positive feedback on this course. Everything associated with this experience was exemplary from the beginning to the end. This is a course which you must play if you visit Las Vegas only 30 minutes easy driving from the Strip. The greens were excellent and the course was in good condition.

The course was immaculate almost look fake pulling in from the street. If you are long and straight off the Teebox you can really score well but if you're not careful it could be in a lot of trouble. I would highly recommend this track to anybody who plays amateur or pro

The course is laid out nicely with a challenging but amateur friendly design. By this I mean the fairways are wide with downhill slopes that add forgiveness and allow short hitters to actually hit the ball farther than their normal drives. The greens were neither fast or slow. They were also very readable. Every member of the staff I encountered were outstanding and provided exceptional service. The food at the on site restaurant was outstanding and actually not overly priced as expected at most courses.

Really could not ask for a better day. Have always enjoyed playing Chimera and have enjoyed it all the more since they reversed the holes so that what used to be 18 is now 9. We used to have to hit into the sun at the end of the day.
