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.

Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Nevada
Nice course and layout. Super windy today so hard to be fair I guess. Good condition and very fast greens with lots of undulations. Carts were a little worn but worked fine. Very nice staff when arriving and leaving. Pace of play seemed a bit slow due to one foursome two groups ahead. No one monitored pace.
Great bunkers and greens, great views!
Visitor from Edmonton, Alberta. Excellent course and service. Weather turned awful and we waited at the turn to see if it would improve. When it didn’t, the Pro shop gave us a 9 hole rain check, good for a year. Thank you !
We will be back to finish the round
Pretty good golf course
Boulder creek is a nice golf course if your on the east side looking for target golf if the drive is the same id suggest Paiute as a better target golf layout for the same price. Practice area does feature a fairway bunker which is something rarely seen.
This course is a great course and beautiful to play. The only down is they hold you to the GolfNow tee time booked even when slow and can go a little earlier. Great range and chipping area. This is my favorite place to play. I take family and friends to play here always
Nice layout. Need to be a straight driver. Lot of waste areas and a nasty drainage channel running through the course. No rough, so balls would run out to waste areas or fairway bunkers. Greens were bumpy as poa- anna hadn't grown in fully. Need to play a few times to know where the trouble is.
A Fun Day Of Golf
Great hole layouts on both nines played. Spots on some of the greens are still showing the effects of winter. For this time of the year the conditions are more than acceptable. If I do end up in the area again, I’ll definitely return to play at the course.
Cold! But fun!
My wife, son and I went out in the morning about 8:00 am. Cold sucker went off on Coyote Run and coming off hole number one the sun was in our eyes so bad we had three balls in the fairway and couldn’t see them until we were right on them. Greens were very fast and very firm. Couldn’t get anything to hold without a bunch of spin! Fairways were pretty solid as well. Sand traps are definitely the hole guards. I think I managed to find about 75% of them. The sand was better than I’ve seen in most of the courses around Clark county. All in all great course and everythiing on the course will be in good shape in another month. The staff and Pro shop were great. Think I will make this on of my regular courses.
A little wind makes for a chilly round and some lost balls.
My wife, son and I went out at 8:00 am. The first nine was was kinda brutal off the first tee of Coyote run that early we had 3 balls hit and couldn’t find one until we were right on top of it, because of the sun. Course is in pretty good shape and I’m sure will be great in about 1 more month. Greens are running fast. They were hard and we couldn’t get hardly anything to hold unless it was thrown in the air. All in all great round! Just wish the wind would have cooperated!!!!!! Staff and Pro shop were great.
Will play again soon!
Wide fairways, large undulating greens. Plays over 7000 yards from the tips. Lots of desert right off the fairway. Don't miss the short grass. Windy day played having with keeping it in play. Pace of play was good. Our foursome played in 4 hours using two sets of tees. Greens were a little spotty making them a bit bumpy, but they were green and running true for the most part. Nice well stocked proshop.
Treats hot deal players poorly.
Used hot deal to play today. Treated me as a second class citizen. Kept saying some people paid full price. Not sure why that matters. Not the first time. Same attitude last year as well. Course is great but slow play.
Nice course and great staff
Course was in decent shape considering the weather has been very cold recently.
Great course but troubling greens
Of a 3 course golf trip, this was our groups favourite. The most challenging, unique and truest test of golf. Love everything about the course except the greens are in rough shape. Poa is taking over the bent and the mix was like playing plinko. Very bumpy and inconsistent. I understand this is difficult to manage until the poa fully takes over, so this is a warning to those expecting puttable greens. Everything else was fantastic. Loved the variety of holes. Playing his a few times is a requirement to knowing shot placement and strategy.
Nice desert course
Excellent fairway condition. Well protected by large sand bunkers; both fairway and green side. Several very scenic holes. Would definitely play again.
Friendly and Welcoming Staff
I am somewhat reluctant to try a new course as some courses may not always be welcoming to non-regulars. At Boulder Creek, I was immediately greeted and warmly welcomed by the staff. They made certain that I was properly prepared and knowledgeable of the course nuances. The course is in great shape and I will be looking for another opportunity to visit.
Course is totally removed from Vegas. Near Boulder City. Easy access to Hover Dam and Bridge. The price was a little high, but I was able to use a few rewards to bring it to a respectable rate. Weather was only 55 but had a great time. Going back sometime when the course is not over seeded. Had a good day of golf.
