Desert Pines Golf Club
Good, narrow course.
Today was my first day back to Desert Pines since 2012. It is every bit as challenging as it was then.The fairways are narrow and tree-lined, but if you keep the ball in the fairway you'll be fine. I played my first 18 hole round with Daniel who works at the driving range at Desert Pines and he was telling me that they had to close it down because of a bad rainstorm that we had in Vegas over the summer. It's reopened now and looks great. The course is in great shape minus the uncourteous golfers not repairing ballmarks on the greens. And the staff is very friendly. The guy that I played my second round of the day with showed me that accuracy is more important than distance on this course, and boy was he right. Shaved 6 strokes off my first round score by not trying to bomb the driver on every hole. All-in-all a great day of golf.

Very Nice Course
The course was very well maintained and has spectacular views. The holes are very well designed with great variety and different challenges around each corner.
Staff were friendly and very helpful. Will play this one again when we visit.

Excellent example of desert course
Must keep in fairway but what a fun course to play. Greens were not as quick as described

Decent course - Amazing customer service
Visited in mid-October. From arrival requiring luggage being stored, to prepping clubs from my travel bag, to personal service to driving range, everything was focused on their guests! It was 20 min cab to course, and in a middle-class area (no villas and mansions in this area). The course was in good (not great) shape. The greens were a little too sandy, and practice green was in much better shape. The double-decker driving range was in tight netted quarters, but a great use of limited space. Will certainly consider return on next visit.

The course was not in good shape
The course had just been reseeded. I wish I would have known that before I spent $130.

Great course even during overseed
Course was great to play. Would love to see it after the overseed. The layout is challenging and the only watch out is other players on the course stray shots.

Played here Sept 14, 2013. With most local courses undergoing overseed or getting ready to, this was one of only a few viable options. I haven't played here in almost three years and forgot what a nice track it is. With so much desert and "target" golf in town, I liked the feel of Desert Pines. Staff was great, seemed to take pride in what the course has to offer. Course was in very good condition ( they were about 10 days away from closing for overseeeding) Pace of play good considering they paired us with a young couple who were fairly new to the game. Food was very appealing also. If I have a complaint it was that the driving range, which is automated and 2-tiered, was closed for a major renovation. Overall a very nice surprise and will not wait another three years before I play here again.
