One of the pioneers in Las Vegas golf, Painted Desert Golf Course is a 1987 Jay Morrish design has golfers shooting at targets in the desert.

Painted Desert has maintained its place in the Sin City golf community through all its changes by putting on an emphasis on course conditioning. Just because your greens are almost two decades old does not mean they cannot be in better shape than many of the new kids on the block.

The desert is the focus here, but Morrish also works in a few lakes as obstacles.

"This golf course is a very friendly layout and you can score here without having a feeling of imminent doom on every hole," John Scappatura said. "We are a bit off of the beaten path, which means that we almost always have availability for tee times. Everyone who does make the trip out here though appreciates our conditioning, the price, and the friendly atmosphere."

No answer when call

My trip got delayed and I called the course to let them know that I will be running late but no one picked up.
I called 5 times still no one picked up so I gave up.
I end up not getting to play at all.

cart path terror

The two worst things on this golf course was the cart paths they have are just a brutal beat up your clubs & your back it was cracked & busted in so many places you might as well just drive over curbs & in the desert! the other thing that was irrataing was the condition of the bunkers now those you could practically bouncce your ball on them & it come bouncing back out it looked like sand but I thought it was concrete even after raking a fresh dug up spot to hit from. Other than that the course was in good condition fairways & greens were lush & green a pleasure to hit from & land on.

Awesome conditions

The only thing this course is lacking is cart path maintenance. Some of the cracked concrete paths can cause a back injury but other than this the course is in great shape for this HOT time of year !!

Nice golf course!

First time player in this golf course and I loved it. Will recommend. Good fairway conditions and greens. Only problem that no cart girl/guy passed to offer drinks or snacks during the whole round. Be ready with your own stuff.

Great shape

The course was in very good shape throughout. I enjoyed the round. The only thing I can say for improvement is on the snack cart have some candy without nuts.
