Primm Valley Golf Club south of Las Vegas: Twice the Fazio golf, and twice the fun

PRIMM, Nev. -- What's better than playing a round of golf on a Tom Fazio-designed golf course? How about playing two Fazio courses.

That's what awaits players at Primm Valley Golf Club, just a 35-minute drive south of Las Vegas.

The two golf courses at Primm Valley, the Desert Course and the Lakes Course, offer players a wide variety of challenges, great views and best of all, solitude not often found on a golf course. There's not a home around. The only sound you'll hear is your heartbeat as you reach yet another tee box with a stunning golf hole before you.

"With two great Tom Fazio courses always in great condition and the great deals we run, it's just a great place to play golf," said Rick Koffler, head professional at Primm Valley. "And the value is unbelievable, especially with our specials. You'll save even a little more money through"

Primm Valley's Desert Course, built in 1998, winds beautifully through the desert. Hence the name. At 7,131 yards with waste bunkers awaiting errant shots, this par-72 layout presents a little tougher challenge than its sister course.

But playing from the proper set of tees allows players of any ability to enjoy the round. The golf course also includes its share of water features, with ponds coming into play on five holes -- none more stunningly than the first and second holes, which share a deep blue pond.

One of the toughest, yet most intriguing, holes is the par-4 third, called Straight Shooter. At 324 yards from the blue tees, it's drivable for big hitters. But is the risk worth the reward? Bunkers come into play left and right if players are short, and this is one of the narrower fairways around. Birdie is a definite possibility, but try to bite off too much and the score can skyrocket.

On the par-71 Lakes Course at Primm Valley, players will find wider, inviting fairways. At 6,945 yards, the length does not provide the difficulty. Rather, it's the stunning water features -- ponds, streams and lakes -- that enter play on an amazing 11 holes. The finishing hole on the Lakes Course, named Pristine, is a 451-yard, par-4 dynamo. You'll find water off the tee on this stunning hole and bunkers that challenge approach shots. A birdie on the final hole is well earned and requires two perfect shots.

Both golf courses share undulating greens, and both are well bunkered -- a great combination that tests short games as well as nerves with the putter.

"The best thing about the Lakes Course is you can play it a lot and play it different ways, as there are a lot of risk-reward options," Koffler said. "And it's nice to have the variety of the Desert Course, with its different personality. We've got two great -- and different -- courses right on the same property."

Primm Valley Golf Club is one of those places that provides a great golf experience at a great price. Add a second round and a night at a Vegas-style hotel in Primm, and you've got a special weekend getaway destination.
