Very slow play. Slow 4some then 3some 3 playing and riding 3 in ONE cart with 2 bags then us (2some). We could not play through so we told the starter/ranger that passed us about the problem. He told us he would talk to them on the turn (9th hole). Nothing changed and we were even more disappointed the back 9.

Traveling from Las Vegas is a challenge, and we expect not to be further challenged by 3 playing golfers to a cart with 2 bags that could not/would not play through leading 4some.

Mountain Falls offer the best to every level of player. Greens, tee boxes and fairways are meticulously cared for. Pro and staff are the most friendly people anywhere. Playing groups seem to move well and the course was well marshaled.

Food and beverage service available at the turn and meals in the clubhouse are great.

Best value, best people, fun town afterwards and easy accommodation if you want to stay over. You have not played quality, country club style golf, until you have played Mountain Falls. See you again soon.

Great course, in great condition or being the end of January. The greens were difficult, very fast and lots of movement. Pretty, in a beautiful setting, with only construction around the course impacting a perfect setting. There was no construction on a Saturday, so no noise issues, but they are putting in infrastructure to handle the building of all the houses. It didn't detract from the experience however. Nice pro shop, and a really nice restaurant. Staff were very friendly and very helpful. Very fair price, we will definately go play again when we come to the Vegas area.

Great first experience playing MF. Have already recommended to friends so will definitely go back. Front nine more wide. Open than back nine.

Only thing concerning is all the new housing starts. Hoping this will not diminish the golf experience.

I love Mountain Falls. It's in great condition, it's as hilly as you will find in the desert, and the people are great. What I like most is the fact that the two nines were designed by different companies - Nicklaus Group designed the front nine, Cal Olson designed the back. They play differently, with the front more open but with more fairway traps in play and more difficult greens, and the back playing more narrow but with easier greens. Overall I never get tired of playing Mountain Falls.

Playing the course for the first time, it's a bit tricky figuring out where to play your tee shots. Hitting the fairway can make this much longer and knowing the course will make it play much shorter. A few places where course knowledge will make a big difference.

Overall good layout in good condition with challenging greens. Will play again.

Everything was great except for this problem. We had to wait past our scheduled tee time because the Club had booked a side game or type of play with some 30 players. We also had to skip a couple of holes because of this, which put us behind time. I think added play should be noted on the website so prospective players know what to expect.

My wife and I were in Vegas for the week. She played 3 courses with me and I played 2 more on my own. 2 average courses and 3 upscale. I played Mountain Falls on my own since the ratings were fantastic…I now understand why. I got a hot deal but with rack rates at $70 tops, it is well worth the hour drive. Tee boxes, fairways were in excellent shape. Greens were super fast with a lot of undulation, but rolled true. Great layout, water features on the back nine made it feel like a country club. Two negatives are the drive (an hour from Vegas but up and over a mountain pass was cool) and number 2 is the 1200 houses that are in the process of being constructed. There are a lot of bulldozers and hammers, but the course is still worth it in my opinion. Driving range was great…sandwich at the club next door was awesome. Really looks and feels like a private country club. Highly recommended for the price in Vegas.

I played this course 8 years ago, it was in nice shape then and it is in great shape now. Greens can be challenging, not to many flat lies, and the fairways have their share of slopes as well. I was teamed up with a nice three-some of locals who pointed out the do's and don'ts. I will play it again.
