Primm Valley Golf Club boasts two championship courses designed by Tom Fazio. On the Desert Course, Fazio fully utilized the rugged landscape and scenic views offered by the mountains in the distance. Like many of his designs, the Desert Course blends seamlessly into the beautiful surroundings. It is a straightforward layout with no hidden tricks but there are several strategically placed bunkers lurking beside the undulating greens to provide some challenges. The golf course also requires a few tricky forced carries. The fairways are generous and offer some room for error, making the course more appealing to beginners. In addition to the two golf courses, Primm Valley also offers extensive practice facilities that include a double-ended driving range, target greens, practice putting greens, and chipping and pitching greens with sand bunkers.

Greens were terrible. Many misses patches and un playable spots. Must be dealing with a fungus or replacing dead areas.

Day at the valley

Course conditions were not idea, grass dormant, no over seeding to green it up, bunkers need work, but the views and great layout still make it worth a visit. If I am ever back in the area, will stop and play it again.

Poor condition

Golf course has been completely lost. Grass is very patchy and diseased. Numerous bare patches, irrigation leaks on all tees fairways and greens.
Very unfortunate because the layout is great. Used to be one of the best values around Vegas. Not anymore.

Very poor condition

Usually one of our favourite day trip destinations to golf…I have never played on a course in such overall poor shape! Fairways very patchy and brown, greens the same ( some with no grass). Lots of dead branches etc on fairways. I believe the Desert course has had little or no maintenance for a long period of time. Management should be embarrassed to have this 18 even open in the it’s current condition.
( spoke with foursome who were playing Lakes course and they commented that it was in better shape.

Desert course gets sadder every year

Desert Course:
The greens have some sort of fungus and were very patchy and with puddles of standing water on several greens. Lots of dead trees. Kitchen/snack bar not open, although there were coolers w/ice & 2 bottles of water on each cart. We have been coming here for 20+ years & used to love the course, but every year it just gets a little sadder.

Fun Course but very dry

i had a lot of fun at this course, it was challenging without it be being frustrating. the course layout was fantastic, but the tee boxes, fairways and greens were very dry and just plain dirt in some spots. also the tee boxes were infested with Red Ants. never got bit but they were very noticeable on the tee boxes and sometimes the greens.

i would play here again maybe in the winter to see if the course is in better conditions

Not a bad course

Considering this course is at Mojave dessert, lack of water is expected. The greens and tee boxes have many bare spots/dying grasses, The course is nicely layout, with beautiful mountains. Hope in fall, the grass will grow back.

Greens

I’m not sure what happened to this golf course. It was always pristine. However the greens look like someone threw Handgrenades on them and really did not roll too well at all. Maybe they lost to greens to a fungus which is what it looked like but most of the greens were full of giant spots where there was no grass in addition they were working on the fringe

Very slow and some struggling greens. The course needs a marshall enforcing pace of play.
