I know it seems I give an awful lot of five star reviews but you have to take each course on its own merits and what it offers in terms of your expectations. I have golfed at Chimera many times and I keep coming back! Initially it was for the embarrassingly phenomenal value for the amount of beautiful course. But then I got to know the staff and love the homemade pizza and it became my second home.

This last visit however exceeded my previous experiences. The grass was in pristine condition and the pace of place was excellent. Whomever did the scheduling of playing groups did a fantastic job of giving people plenty of time to play their hole. Three thumbs up if I could give it that.

Played this course for the first time on a Thursday via GolfNow. Paired up with 2 complete strangers, one a retired Marine Corps veteran and one visiting from back east. Had possibly the funnest round of golf I've ever had. The fairways were the greenest I've ever played and it was just a beautiful day. I will definitely be back. The course is very fair to us high handicappers.

I last played Chimera three years ago when it was named Tuscany and this time was as good or better than the last. Excellent shape with just a couple of greens with some bare spots. Was first off and played solo in 2.5 hours while my wife hit the spa. $30 Uber ride from the strip. Still can’t understand why they changed the name, I can never remember the new name It was less expensive under the old name. The non-resident fees are high so grab a hot deal if you can. Great course, all green and fun layout.

Course was in great shape. We played it for $39 on a hot deal Christmas Eve. Played in 3.5 hours. Greens rolled true and held approach shots. The entire course was over seeded with rye, jus not the fairways, greens and tee boxes.

I have been playing golf on my trips to Las Vegas for 40 years and this is one of the best courses I have played. The course was in magnificent condition and the scenery is a plus. Challenging but fair, the course provides opportunities to score but also penalizes errant shots. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I will definitely return here on my next trip.

This course never disappoints. The greens were rolling real smooth with not a lot of ball marks. The course is always lush. Well worth the rate.

Fairways are in excellent shape as are the greens. The golf carts have a chip in them so if you leave the fairways or cart path the cart barely moves- need to be aware of that. ( would have been good to have that info early. 19th home is nice and all staff very friendly

The starter is classic. Nunzio has become another reason to choose this course.

My GPS watch had to be manipulated to run first nine second as the nines have flip flopped.

Great grass on fairways and greens

Weather was a little cool and breezy so we had the course pretty much to ourselves

Our cart attendant Kortnie (with a K) was excellent. She was cool with my teasing. I loved her. The course was very challenging for an "older gentleman" :). Especially from the next to tips tees. A young lady served us breakfast (name escapes me) and schwas great. I was amazed to know she had 2 children. She looks so young. I loved the coziness of the temp club house. If you build a big new one, you will lose that.
