The Lakes Course is one of two championship courses designed by Tom Fazio at Primm Valley Golf Club. It was the club's original layout before it was joined by the Desert Course a year later. As its name would imply, the Lakes Course features an intricate system of lakes and rivers weaving through the layout and coming into play on 11 holes. The layout is challenging but playable with elevation changes and strategically placed bunkers that are balanced by large greens and wide, player-friendly fairways. One of the golf course's most memorable holes is the par-5 second. This challenging 530-yard hole plays around a massive lake but with an accurate second shot, it is reachable in two. There is also water the left of the green and a bunker in front.

Disappointing

Such a great layout. Shame the green s, lakes and surrounding areas haven’t been maintained. Several greens & fairways have bare spots that need to be patched. Appears they may be working to get it back in shape following COVID. Sure hope so!

Prime no longer in prime

First played this course 25 years ago, it was spectacular. Today it is showing it’s age in overall course conditions and facilities. Still a very fun course to play and a bargain in the Las Vegas area. Played mid morning round, no waiting, played at our own pace and really enjoyed the round.

Very fun layout. Greens needed a little TLC, but overall this course was in good shape. Plan on playing it again.

Greens need repairs

The fairways are nice but the greens need repairs. A lot of sand spots. There was a tournament so our tee time was delayed 35 minutes. But pace of play of great.

Needs love

Cut the sand traps, fix the cart paths. As fir the desert course. Just close it if you're not going to take care of it. The lakes need the love.

Needs some maintenance. Greens horrible.

This was once such a beautiful course. Now it’s in just moderately fair condition. Some of the greens however were thoroughly thrashed. Literally large swathes of missing turf with holes and bumps. Also large areas of sand on the greens. Terrible.
