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 nice round

Desert Pines was in really good condition. It only plays just over 6,100 yards. I only hit my driver three times, which was fine. We played early and finished just under 4 hours. My only complaint about the facility is there isn't a single hole that stands out 48 hours after playing. Most courses have that "wow" hole that you think back on. That wasn't the case here. Course conditions were really good, staff was nice, which is all you can ask for.

6hr round

I quit after nine. Given, it was a Saturday morning, but 3hrs on the nose to play the front and nobody in sight to keep things moving. Course was in decent shape and it’s an interesting short and tight layout.

Review

Fun course fair but tight. Course in nice shape. Short course. Food was average. Staff very friendly.
Very slow pace 5 hours. That’s slow for 6000 yards.
Still it was fun and I would recommend this course especially for the money.

Great track

It’s like Las Vegas’s hidden gem. It’s a short course but there is plenty of hazards that really require you to play target golf. The whole Course was in great shape. This was my second time playing it first time was about five years ago.
