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.

I have played this course multiple times previously where it was in excellent shape each time, hence my desire to play it again. This time, not the case: very thin fairways, and very bumpy greens (looked like some sort of fungus maybe). I t was not the same course I had played before. If I return I will make sure of it being in a very much better playing condition. Until then, I cannot recommend this course for playing.

We played on Dec 8, 2017 and the weather was perfect. They go to great lengths to keep the course nice. The course is challenging due to the many washes and arroyos on both sides of most fairways. There are 27 holes. Two of the nines (Coyote Run & Desert Hawk) are similar, while Eldorado Valley is a little more open. I've played this course a few times and the pace of play has always been good. You might pay a little more to play this course than other courses in the area, but its worth it due to the course maintenance and the greens. The practice area and range are excellent. There is a chipping green and plenty of room on the range. It is just north of the Boulder City airport and a skydiving school, so there are always people above you jumping out of planes and making noise; it's kind of funny. All putts roll to the south and you should keep that in mind. Great course with a friendly staff.

Beautiful day @Boulder Creek although the weather was a bit windy and wintry. Played the Coyote Run and Eldorado nines; both have 4 sets of tees, all of which offer challenging but fair tests. Lots of fairway bunkers to test your driving game and a few water hazards to further make things fun. Greens were in great shape and the putting was tricky given the windy conditions. The only thing average was the rental golf club set; worn grips and a bit beat up (Callaway X-hots). Nice pro shop with lots of sale items. 30 minute drive from the Vegas but well worth it. Used the Golfnow website and got a nice discount.
