Rating 71.1

Desert Pines Golf Club is often referred to as "The Pinehurst" of Las Vegas. It offers a Carolina sandhills experience, yet is conveniently located just minutes from downtown or the Strip. This Dye design features thousands of mature pine trees lining the well-groomed fairways where white sand bunkers protect large, undulating, bent grass greens. Because of the large number of pine trees, often times this course is cooler than other courses in the heat of the summer. Although there are no forced carries, water comes into play on 9 of the 18 holes.

A Little Gem

What a pleasant surprise to find such a cool course in the middle of Vegas. I'd call this course a little gem. It's TOUGH. It's narrow. But, it's a lot of fun.

Greens are in rough shape. Staff is great!

Greens are in rough shape. A lot of trash in the lakes. Watering with reclaimed water during play is not good. Spray from water in a breeze is unpleasant.
A lot of goose dung all over the course.
Staff is friendly and trying to make it a good experience for guests.

Local Player

Other than the greens being a little chewed up, I’d go back again in a heartbeat. Narrow fairways, but a lot of it feeds back in. For the value, one of my favorite places to play & eat!

Great layout/ Poor conditions

One of the finest layouts in Vegas. But the greens may have been the worst I have ever played. The bunkers need sand. Do something about the goose crap. Everybody else does. I understand it’s January, but get someone working there besides just in the clubhouse.

Don't waste your money

I've never seen a golf course that has as much goose and duck poop as this one. It is virtually all over the entire course and there appeared to be no effort to clean it up. In addition, I don't know how long it had been since the greens had been mowed. They were shaggy, bumpy, inconsistent and covered in bird excrement. My advice--play somewhere else.
