Desert Pines Golf Club
close to town.
Tight fairways. Short course. Some greens have cotour. That's their only defence.

When travelling aboard you are never sure what you are going to get. I picked this because of price and it was not too far from the Strip where we were staying. Taxi costed us about $35 from The Strip so that was ok.
From the time we arrived we were really well looked after. The practice facilities are great and the starter was informative about the course. Three of us played this course and we all loved it and the weather was nearly perfect with a little breeze blowing. We had a 7:40am tee time which meant we missed the real heat of the day. We played the middle tees (Blue I think) which were not overly long and good for me as a 13 handicapper which meant I could enjoy it.
Overall a great experience and highly recommended. My wife played off the women's tees and she enjoyed it and is a high handicapper.
The only down side is there is quite a lot of traffic noise as it is surrounded by freeways on 2 sides.

Nice course and some great holes, terrific value/bang for your buck with a $35 twilight rate for 18. Much better value than Bali Hai without the noise of jumbo jets taking off and landing. Not far from the LV Strip at all. I would certainly recommend.

Greens were fast & receptive. Narrow fairways. Interstate nearby on some holes. Friendly staff.

Worth the trip outside the strip
Great course, tight fairways and interesting layout. Friendly staff about 15 minutes from the strip. Would definitely come back. Fairways like carpet, good bunkers and reasonably priced.

this course is a challenge you must play
This course is great for golfers who like the challenge of keeping the ball straight and using course management

Lots of Trees
We played on a Thursday morning. The course is in great shape. Fairways are nice and green and lots of moguls. There are a fair amount of sand bunkers on this course also.
Greens rolled true with lots of undulations.
The only drawback was that we had to start on the back nine.
The starter informed us that a group in front had no golf experience and were playing VERY slow.They had no marshal working that day to go out and speed them up.
