Palms Golf Club
Palms Golf Course is a championship course that combines desert and traditional golf. Formerly called Peppermill, the course is Mesquite's oldest 18-hole course and offers one of the city's most unique rounds. The course is truly like playing two courses in one. The front nine has a classic design with fairly flat and open fairways that give way to tight, tree-lined driving areas. Save for one hole, water comes into play on every hole on the front nine starting with the second, which is the course's no. 1 handicap. Water can be found along the entire left side of the fairways and you'll also face a pair of bunkers guarding the right side and three more behind the green. The elevated tees on the back nine provide scenic views of the desert terrain covered with sagebrush and tumbleweeds, a dramatically different landscape that the previous nine.

Rode the Whites (6178/70.6/125) in 4.5H early morning. Wind was in the 25mph range for 10 holes, then settled down into just breezy. 65 and partly cloudy. Matched up with Jim x 2, both pleasant guys to golf with.
Tees mostly good with only a few needing divot attention.
Fairways were lush and nice to play from.
Rough was lush around the greens. Rest was kinda rough, could be anything from lush to hardpan within a relatively small area.
Traps were poor. Thin with alot of rocks in them.
Greens were deceptively quick. Firm and a good looking dark green. Very nice.
Customer service excellent. Cart gal around numerous times. Well stocked pro shop. Gas powered carts were well below average. No GPS, but they provided a nice yardage book with your fee.
Front 9 was flatter and had more water. Back 9 many holes had elevation changes and was generally more interesting. Roughly a 700 yard difference in the White/Blue tees with no combo tees was a negative.
Layout was average, playing conditions well above average. If it cost $50 I would be recommending it. I realize it is high season here, however... at slightly more than double that for their early morning rate, this course did not come close to justifying that kind of fee on a Wed. morning.
twice the fun!
The front 9 is completely different than the back!!
Front is swing away...pretty wide open, while the back is more hilly and tight!
What a great layout. Beautiful views from the plateau tee boxes. Had forgotten what a great course it is.
We only played the back nine due to frost delays. That took almost 3 hours . There were no marshals . There is no decorum . People were playing in jeans ! The back nine was scenic and the course seemed to be in good shape . The greens were weird . We were told that they were a mixture of poanna and bermuda. It looked and felt that they were almost like artificial turf . There were no ball marks on them . Each hole was “ doubled decked ( two groups waiting on each tee before us! It was pure torture! Stay away unless that’s how you like to play !
Nice course, challenging but fair...you can generally see the trouble. Several interesting risk reward holes. Good value for the area.
Beautiful views and challenging tee shots over ravines
I really enjoyed the weather and the course. I loved the magnificent desert views and the challenge of hitting over deep ravines. I would love to play here again.
Avoid this course and especially the “twilight” rate
Rushed from a morning course to play this course. The pro shop gentleman simply commented, “You guys are early,” and left it at that. We loaded our cart and headed to the first tee where the starter says, “Do you know what time it is?” We apologized thinking we were running late. He talked down to us and announced, “All tee times are Pacific Standard Time.” We were told that the twilight rate “does not guarantee 18 holes.” We were constantly waiting for the seniors on the course who were more intent on socializing on the course and very inconsiderate of others on the course that we finished 5 minutes after “the course closes” and it was getting dark. We were the very first twilight tee time so should have easily gotten 18 holes in. Round took 4 hours and 35 minutes. No marshall to move players along. Very disappointed!
When on a mini-vacation and trying to decide on courses , I base a lot of decisions on what reviews I can find. I am sure glad I chose this course.
I don't see a whole lot of elevation change back home and this provided some great views and fun shots to try and accomplish. After a very good front nine, the back 9 was a joy to play. While the score was not very good, I would come back to this area in a heartbeat to play not just this course, but maybe try others in the area.
Very picturesque course. Was in good shape with some maintenance going on. Staff was "bend over backwards" friendly and accommodating. Hey and beer was a dollar! Can't beat that.
Good course and friendly staff
Golf pro was very courteous and (Rus) allowed me to tee of earlier than my tee time. Was a fun course and will go back and recommend to others.
Played in off season and had the course nearly to myself. Love the layout. Greens and fairways good. Staff very helpful. Would Definately return.
Quite a change from the front 9 to the back 9. The front is wide open and flat but the back has severe elevation changes and punitive hazard areas. Good overall condition and the greens rolled very nicely.
Great location & layout
When you drive to the club house my friends said to turn back & I told them to keep their comments till the end.
That being said,I think that part needs to be taken care of
The front nine was ok but once we made the turn my friends could not believe their eyes as they klicking on their camera. Every since hole on the back nine has it's own character & the view is breathtaking.
We finished our round in less than 4hrs
Nice course which was good value for the money. Only real negative was it took just over 5 hours. We complained after taking 2 hours and 35 mins to play the front and they sent someone out which helped eventually.
The back 9 is most enjoyable and challenging.
It's a great course for any ability. Certainly there are better manicured courses in the area, but the price is right. You don't have to play big all the time.
