Desert Pines Golf Club
Course conditions were great, but staffing and communication could have been much better. I arrived on my first day of vacation, looking forward to hitting the driving range since it was my first round in six months. I came early and while the staff was friendly in pointing out where to go to get my clubs and cart, the staff failed to mention to me that the snack bar and driving range were both closed. So I had to play the course cold and it was not pretty for the front nine. I should have been told up front that the range was closed. I probably would have booked elsewhere for the day and returned another day.
After playing my round with two others, I was advised that they got onto the range 20 minutes after I was denied access. I was on the putting greens, in full view of the staff. It would have been really easy for them to tell me and I would have made my way over there.
On the bright side, the course was in great shape. The greens had quite a few divots, which could have been from the group of young drinkers ahead of us. Pace was slower than I had hoped...again due to the group ahead of us. No Marshall was in sight.
The last thing I noticed was that several of the holes were significantly shorter than the yardage on the score card. I can understand 15 or 20 yards, but some were 60-90 yards off. That's significant, and would tell me that the level of difficulty and slope were incorrect.
Overall, the golf course was in great condition, and the staff I encountered were friendly.

Cash grab Club Rental
$75.00 club rental for one round? Ridiculous.
Almost twice as much as other courses we played.
Thought maybe they were trying to jack us because of the great deal we got from Golfnow.
The course was in great shape, staff were friendly.
Ball/club washer on the cart was broken, and nowhere to wash them during play.
Just because of the cost of club rental, won't play this course again.

Although a shorter length golf course, it was in excellent shape. Beautifully kept up by the grounds crew. Greens very true and lush fairways!!

Very interesting layout with great attention to detail & aesthetics. Very good condition,friendly & helpful staff, short trip from the Vegas strip. Won't host a PGA event but will deliver an interesting and enjoyable experience at a reasonable rate for average to very good players. Less skilled players may find the water & sand traps on most holes a little intimidating.

desert pines outing
an extremely well maintained course with helpful staff. Pace of play is an issue because course is very busy. In town but country feeling.

Very nice staff
Fun Round. The greens were in good shape, but very difficult. They are fast and hard to read.

Good downtown course but play was slow
enjoyed the course, staff was excellent, greens were in great shape. But unfortunately play slowed due to slow foursome.. need to move them along or get them of the course.. never a need to have 3 groups backed up on a tee...

Management does not like Golfnow
I purchased two Golf Now certificate's during your 21 days of Christmas. Once I booked my tee times with Golf Now & later showed up at Desert Pines GC., the staff did not want to honor my already purchased certificates. In fact, they advised that this was Golf Now's problem and not theirs. They finally put us out behind three foursomes, which took almost 6 hours to play. I play Vegas golf a lot, but I will NEVER return to this club & will advise the same to my friends. I do not know if I will purchase Golf Now deals in the future.
