Chimera is in terrific condition. Not a blade of grass is out of place. A fun course to play with wide fairways the are accommodating and enough sets of tees for any golfer. The only issue is the greens are quite slow. They are true and in great shape with no bare spots just very slow and if faster this could be one of the best courses in Vegas area IMO.

Well maintained player-friendly course with plenty of variety on the holes and scenic mountain and valley views. I had some initial doubts as we pulled into the gated development surrounding the course. But once we got to the first tee they were gone! The homes along the course did not detract from the course. All staff we encountered were warm and friendly and made us feel welcome as if we were playing at our home club. Practice facilities are a little disjointed with the practice putting green near the tenth tee box and a chipping green near the first. The course was completely full the day we played yet we managed to finish in close to four hours. We weren't waiting on the group ahead of us after the first hole and we only saw the group behind from a distance a few times. Overall a very pleasant vacation golf experience.

This was our first time golfing in Nevada. Located in a gated community. Clubhouse is unassuming and the staff is very friendly. We arrived early to "get a feel" for the amenities; warmed up with complimentary bag of balls and proceeded first tee where we we're greeted by the starter. Starter did an excellent job of communicating with us regarding status of our pairing and time to tee off. Practice greens were in rough condition but the course itself was in very good-excellent condition. Course played at slope rating and is very forgiving. The eighteenth hole seemed a little out of character for the remainder of the course but this is only a gripe and not a real criticism. We stayed after to celebrate our success with a drink at the clubhouse and tried their nachos which we really enjoyed (good homemade salsa if you like it a little peppery). We'd play this course again especially at the discounted "Hot Deals" rate that was a steal of a deal.

A little slow off the first tee as there was a crowd. Starter did a good job keeping everyone informed of the delay and was friendly. Once we got going the pace of play was great. We finished right around 4 hours. At the turn wanted to grab something but no pre-made food. Said would take 5-10 minutes but with the pace of play I didn’t want to be the slow group. Worked out better eating after. Restaurant staff were super friendly. Remodel of restaurant since my last visit is great. Makes more sense reversing the nines around. Only real complaint was when we finally saw the beverage cart we were almost done and no pre-made food (sandwiches, hot dogs). Will always come back again!

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.
