Boulder Creek Golf Club - Desert Hawk/Coyote Run
Boulder Creek Golf Club boasts three nine-hole courses, which can be played in different 18-hole combinations. Though this Boulder City club is a bit off the beaten path, the scenic location is well worth the drive. The terrain provides different challenges on each nine. The Desert Hawk/Coyote Run combination begins with the longest of the three nines. Desert Hawk has plenty of room for lengthy drives and clear shots to generous fairways. There are also opportunities to work on your short game skills, it's a nine that will have you using all the clubs in your bag. The back nine is just as diverse with varying elevation changes that depending on where your ball lands can either be a boon or a punishment. Water hazards also come into play on a few holes.

Poor Condition of Greens Spoiled a Great Course
I picked this up as a Hot Deal through GolfNow. I had been planning to play the course anyway and the deal came along just as I was ready to book (the day before playing). I got the day and tee time that worked best for me. Kudos to GolfNow.
This was my first time playing Boulder Creek. The views are impressive, with the desert valley stretched out beneath the course. Check in was easy and staff were friendly enough, but they were clearly more used to dealing with course regulars.
The driving range is huge and there are plenty of short game practice areas. This is where I first encountered the poor condition of the greens. They mere a mottled colour, mix of dark and light greens and bumpy would be an understatement. The starter let me know they are in between seasons and have two different kinds of grass on the greens. It was terrible to putt on - bumpy, slow and inconsistent.
The course itself was a classic desert layout - lots of washes, arroyos, coolees to play out of that required a golfer to play their entire bag. The locals I played with described it as a mild day wind wise - which I calcluated as a 2-3 club wind. This made the uphill 180 yd par 3 into the wind pretty challenging, but made the downwind number one handicap hole getable.
Each cart has a detailed GPS, but the bright sun makes it almost unreadable. Plenty of water on the course and beverage carts on each side kept hydration easy.
I like this course and would play here again, but would not pay the full rate unless the greens were in better condition.
The course layout and staff were good. The greens are in transition and we’re inconsistent. I was very frustrated and wanted to leave the course halfway through my round.
Boulder Creek is one of my favorite golf courses when I come to Henderson. Today, the greens were Abysmal. Poa taking over the greens, not cut, bumpy, uneven speeds. I felt that I wasted my money and time.
Fairways were in good shape - but the greens had multiple types of grass growing on them. The greens were very bumpy and slow to the point where you could not keep a ball on line. Good layout - I hope they get the greens fixed.
I live in Los Angeles and you need to play some of the better private clubs to get a course in this type of condition. The fairways were mostly like carpet. The greens were going through a change, but still in wonderful condition. All I can say is that I wish I had a public course in Los Angeles that even slightly resembled Boulder Creek.
Fairways tightly mowed so get some role. Green didn't look quick but ball rolled well with a few bumps. Target golf but if on appropriate tee box you can club down a little down and still have a.comfortable shot to the green.
This was a great course layout, playing hard and fast with occasional wind at 10-15 mph. The staff was super nice and allowed me to enjoy my vacation round alone. The greens were nice, fairways tight and fast. I have played a lot around Vegas and this course is worth the short drive from the strip.
This course has great features
Played Desert Hawk to El Dorado, The pace was great, no hold ups this morning. The course was in great shape and the staff was super friendly and helpful.
This course is a very good and fair test of golf.
Course is difficult but fair. Must keep it in play to score. Fairways and greens are in great shape. Pace of play is excellent. Staff is always helpful. A real pleasure to play.
Great course overall
Pace of play was a bit slow, especially with sundown at 4:30pm. However the course staff, course layout and amenities made up for the slow play. I look forward to playing again.
Boulder Creek GC does not disappoint. The course has firm fairways that give you confidence and shorter irons into greens. The greens are fast and smooth which allows a good putting stroke to fill it up! I played Eldorado/Coyote Run at 751a (Saturday) and we finished under four hours. My group moved around for high handicappers.
One of the best around
We have played this course now 5 times and we always enjoyed it. Challenging but fair!
We will be back!
Beautiful setting, challenging layout with well guarded greens. Greens were fast. Course was in great shape and not crowded at all. Twosome, played in 3 hrs.
This course is well maintained and a good layout for the average golfer. Beautiful surroundings and a reasonable rate. Close to Hoover Dam. I would play there again.
this course has a lot fairway buckers
play this course first time never seen many fairway buckers before. condition is very good
