Rating 73.0

At Red Rock Country Club, Arnold Palmer has created an escape from desert golf with a lush green course that forces golfers to think over their shots. As you're thinking, a waterfall could be crashing in the background. There are actually two Palmer courses here, but only The Arroyo is open for public play.

It measures in at 6,883 yards from the back tees and uses dramatic bunkering to set off its holes. The par 4s are particularly inventive, especially the 432-yard 4th. The par-3 seventh gives you great views of The Strip in the distance. The greens consistently run 10-11 on the Stimpmeter and the fairways are designed to funnel shots that are not overly wild back into decent lies.

"The Arroyo Course is what it is -- a playable course with stunning scenery and a smattering of decent golf holes," former TravelGolf.com writer Shane Sharp said. "It won't provide as memorable a round as Sin City's big-name resort courses, but the price is relative. If you're looking for a course to include in your annual Vegas rotation, Arroyo would be a nice addition, considering its conditioning and scenery."

Slow Play

We booked a 1:24 tee time on Friday the 11th of October. We teed off at 2;00. When we got to the second hole there was a group teeing off and 3 more waiting ahead of us. Front 9 was over 3 hours and we were on hole 13 when it got to dark to play anymore. Was told they had two tournaments that day but were offered nothing for compensation for the slow play and not being able to finish the round. Would definitely recommend calling the course before play. We booked on Golfnow so had no choice but to play. Other than the slow play the course was nice. Flew from Kansas with our clubs and were extremely disappointed we didn't get a full round in.

Not the Country Club Course

This golf t-time was advertised as Arroyo GC at "Red Rock". If you do not know there is two courses at this venue, you think you are playing the CC course at RedRock. NOT!! There is a CC course (members only) and a Public Course for the general public, Arroyo. The Arroyo Course is the Public course, which is not a quality course as far as condition and quality. The GolfNow listing was a bit "misleading" and dependent on you knowing the facility had two courses and the listing was for the lesser quality "Public" course.

Course was in good shape. Looks like some of the fairways had been verticut but not an issue. Greens were awesome. Staff was awesome. Second time I have played and will keep it on my list on my trips to Vegas.

Mediocre

Decent facility nice staff and course in I'd say 4 outa 5 condition. However, layout kinda sucks pretty bad there's a point where you drive 5 minutes through neighborhood to a par 3 then 5 minutes again to get to 8. Some holes are good layout but overall 18, kinda stupid. Good enough condition though

Hairy bumpy greens

The course is good and not a huge challenge but when the greens come back after the punching holes and sanding it will play better. I probably won’t be back anytime soon but if the course heals then I might consider coming back.

Where is the Marshall?

I remember now why I don't play here very often. it is excruciatingly slow. The 3s-me in front of us were not smart enough to fog a mirror...but all three were giving each other on course lessons while the group ahead of them was 2 holes ahead. The first time we saw a Marshall was on 16 green and he was just out joy riding.

Love this Course

I have played this course a good number of times this year ... they finally cut the rough and now the course conditions are near perfect ... the rough is green and thick and presnets a challenge but you can find your ball without a problem.. the greens are in great shape and run fast down grain (away from the westerly mountains) and at a moderate pace into the grain ... traps have plenty of sand and the fairways are well grassed ... I play many of the local courses and this is my favorite when it comes to excellent value, a challenging round and members who do not mind letting faster groups play through

Nice layout; good condition; but CUT THE DANG ROUGH

So, I have played this course a number of times and it is challenging and usually in good condition ; but the rough has gotten ridiculous the last few times I have played it... you end up spending a ridiculous amount of time looking for your ball that is barely out of the fairway; pros have spotters to find their ball in high rough; but amateurs like me do not .. I use a brigh yellow ProV1 and end up losing 1 or 2 during 18 holes there just because the dang rough is 3 plus inches high... i don't mind the challenge of hitting out of the rough and on this round from the blacks shot 77 ... but my playing partner and i are about out of patience with the rough length.. it just doesn't make any sense for daily play... that said, the staff is wonderful, particularly Marilesa who is sometimes the cart firl and sometimes the bartender... she is so kind and attentive ... and the cart guys rock too...
