Desert Pines Golf Club
Beautiful course, tight fairways, but still great fun!
Very enjoyable early morning of golf. Fairways were in great shape. Greens were showing high use with many unrepaired ball marks. Playing early I was able to avoid the wind and played at my own pace. All-in-all a good golf outing.

Nothing Special but Ok
Course conditions were good. Only issue was 6 holes were roped off as cart path only. If I knew that I would have carried my bag. Course is walkable but do not know if they allow it.

This course is about 15 minutes from the strip so you can imagine the number of people. The good - it was in good shape, the staff were friendly and the rentals were decent quality. The bad - The driving range had matts and automatic ball tee-ers, unfortunately there were only 2 for lefties and they were both broke. The ugly - space is at a premium this close to the strip and the layout is what I call Fore-golf, holes run parrellel and balls come at you from all angles. You hear a ball hit from a nearby tee, then you hear "FORE!". One hit my cart so hard it made my heart skip. There are better golf experiences to be had in Vegas. Take the time to drive away from the strip and play real desert golf.

Would play again
Great course for a vacation round with some nice distant views of surrounding mountains and the strip. Staff very friendly and facility is in really good shape. Water in play on 6-7 holes. Not a lot of driver needed from the middle tees around 6400 yds. Player has decision to make from the tee usually long iron/hybrid is plenty since accuracy is the game here. Good mix of par 3 lengths, shorter par 5's allow for some good scoring chances for the mid handicap. Take a few minutes before the round to roll some putts, bent grass greens have lots of features but nothing crazy. They roll really good and if you are not careful putts will get away from you and 3 putts will add up. Wind which can be an issue and make things cold really wasnt here with pines providing some protection. Would def play again.

with so many other nice course around the vegas area.im not sure why anyone would play this one.
we were very dissapointed with this course.we played many other courses in the vegas area and found this one to be rather boring and very short. it is quite a tight course but if you are a single figure handicap then you will be hitting driver and chipping a sand wedge most of the day.theres just no way you can justify paying $99 for here when you could get on a much nicer course like spanish trails or tuscany for $70. the condition of the course is great.no complaints there. just too short.comparing this to pinehurst is quite frankly a insult to the former.

Great Location. Pristine Condition. High Recommended!
I played Desert Pines as part of a 3-day golf package offered by Walters Golf. Desert Pines was a true delight that required very crafty iron play and I absolutely loved it. The greens rolled true and had great undulation! It was a fantastic golf experience that definitely stood out - much different than the target golf you'll experience elsewhere in Las Vegas. What's great about this course is their practice facility! I wound up delaying my start time because of it and staying after my round to get in addition practice - simply awesome. And the staff ... 5-star service all the way. They truly make you feel special, sort of like a local country club feel.

Favorite course is Las Vegas!!!!
I play Desert Pines at least twice a month but have never written a review for this golf course till now. I've played nearly 85% of the golf courses in Las Vegas and Desert Pines, for the price(resident rate) is by far the hidden jewel of the desert!! The course is always well maintained, the greens have always offered a great putting surface, the staff is wonderful and there for your every need!! The driving range, even though its mats only, is covered with air conditioning and misters for the hot summer times, automatic ball dispenser with adjustable tees and if you get an "orange" ball, you get a free round of golf. The course is pretty straight forward, challenging enough for advance players hitting from the back tee's but is a great, fun course for the novice to intermediate player. Bunker play is challenging but their sand is very well maintained, no rocks, not hard packed at all and easy to pitch out of. Because of the great rates and course conditions, it can at times be a little bit busy but the pace of play seems to move along nicely. I always seem to shoot my best scores at this course!!

Shot makers course
Course was in good shape, greens were fast and we played in under 4 hours. Fairways can be narrow at times but played with my 80 yr old father and the course was even playable for him. Golfnow special was for $81 which is a great value for a Walters Golf Course.

I was very happy with the condition of the course and the cost to play. The staff was terrific and extremely friendly! Played on Thanksgiving day and finished in under 3 hours. Going back to play again today.

The staff was outstanding
The course was in very good shape and was what I would call a typical "resort" course. Not hard, but very aesthetic.

Fairways are nice. liked the layout with the water in areas
Everything was great except the greens. they were chewed up by someone dragging their feet creating long ridges of spike marks, looks like very few fix their ball marks. Also someone had was spitting sunflower seeds on the green, Not very smooth putting. course could us a marshal to be watching for these kind of things.
