Well worth the Drive

I've played this course about 50 times over the past 2 years..Yes it's a bit of a drive..BUT a very easy relaxing drive from Vegas..This course is always in perfect shape...greens roll true and are challenging...course layout has a nice mix of dessert & water...can't beat the pace of play..usually takes 3 hrs to 3 1/2...pricing is very fair(50-70$)depending on time of the year.The restaurant has excellent food and the prices are rather cheap..Honestly I'd give this place a 6 star rating if I could..Vegas should learn a thing or 2 for how they run their operations...This staff actually gives a crap.

Excellent Course well worth playing

This is an excellent course and great value for the money for what we paid. Some really interesting holes. Greens were difficult to read but true.

Grill restaurant was excellent value for money and well worth staying to eat.

One of my favorite courses around Vegas, specially the last nine holes. I always try to go there if I am around. It is worse the 50 miles drive from town. Our round was only 3,5 hours. Not many people on the course. Very relaxing round. Fairways and greens in good condition. Bunkers ok but the sand is not really good - more fine gravel than sand. Nice restaurant with friendly stuff and good terrace to enjoy food and drinks after the round.

Go play

This is a great course if you want to get out of the Vegas strip for the afternoon You're going to have to rent a car it's a little bit of a ride but it's a very easy enjoyable ride course is well worth the money although I know that it's more expensive than some of the strip courses but the place is in great shape and it's a very fun layout

Great venue

This course a beautiful gem. Great course layout and excellent playing condition. We were greeted with a smile and quickly on our way to the range with provided golf balls. We were on time for our tee time, and played in about 5 hours. But this was due to a high school girls local tournament in front of us. I would estimate that our round would have been played in about 4h20 at worst on a normal day. Great value for the price and a challenging course with different views of the surrounding mountains and desert. It is about 1 hour drive away from the strip, but certainly worth the drive. I enjoyed it and will play it again when I get back in this area.

Test of Patience

What a disaster! Unfortunately I played on a day they had an outside tournament. Not a problem, I made an afternoon tee time. Golf course let the tournament add 15 more entrants which fouled up the afternoon tee times for players. The staff seemed to not know what to do when their tee times were fouled up. When I arrived I was told to ask the Marshall when I was to start—no organization at all. I paired up with different people throughout my round. There was a 10-15 minute wait on each hole. I was told this was not the usual pace of play for Mountain Falls. Locals said it was usually fast moving, but based on my experience I find it hard to believe. Surprised the Marshall was not able to get things moving. I’m also surprised the staff was not able to give people a tee time based on what they had posted on the books. I’d be hard pressed to play this course again even though it was not one of their regular days and it is a nice course. The disappointing thing was the way the staff handled the situation—they were friendly but had no idea what to do.

Used to be better but has it's improvements elsewhere

Pros
Park like setting in Southern Nevada is rare.
Not Desertized
Decent if not excellent shape year round.
Front nine totally different than back nine.
Great practice facility
Great Value
Current Management seems to have reduced the
Operating losses. I'm sure reducing theft and freebies had a bit to do with that.
Cons
Allow fivesomes
Largest practice facility in Southern Nevada and they put mats in at the driving range. ?????
Previous Greenskeeper had a better handle of the course.
Got new carts with GPS and did not put "No carts" signs where the carts stop working.

Another Great Visit

We play here every year (we can travel) this time we played it twice.The manager gave us a great deal on the second day. I think he likes the Canadians! Greens punched and dressed but very playable, Tee Boxes and fairway are in excellent shape.

Bad Timing

Unbeknownst to us, Mountain Falls GC had aerated greens on both nines. We found this out upon arrival -- was not posted on their site. They had closed the back 9 due to aerating today. We were told to play the front 9 twice -- not what we drove all the way to Pahrump from Vegas for. We finished the front 9, and was too backed up to replay. We asked the pro shop if we could drive the cart around the back 9 to see what we missed, in case we want to come out again. They wouldn't even allow that. Very disappointing visit on several counts.
The course is on flat land, which gives a boring feel compared to others in the Vegas area. It also feels a bit narrow, reminding me of an exec course. It's part of a slow moving housing development. I'd rate it at best a 6.5 of 10. It is not worth the drive from Vegas. My first visit to Pahrump, likely my last. A dusty burg with very little to offer.

sLnr8fzAyT0ab5XGGbJu, I am very sorry to hear that you had such a poor experience with us. Here at Mountain Falls we strive for excellence and that is clearly not what you got. We do struggle with our website updates, something we are currently working on to get more streamlined so that we can keep our customers in the know about things such as aerification. We would really appreciate if you gave us another chance to show you what a great golf experience Mountain Falls can be. Please reach out to me directly at eowens@mountainfallsgolfclub.com, and we will get you setup. We do offer one of the best experiences in Nevada, and I'd feel even worse if you never got to experience it fully. Thank you for your review, yours and others like it help us to be better.

I would like to make up for this experience if you'd be willing to call the Pro Shop and ask for the Director of Golf, we will get you setup and back out here for what I promise will be a much better experience all around. We do offer one of the top tier golf experiences in Southern Nevada and I'd hate for you to miss out on it. Thank you for you're review, we truly take it to heart and will do better.

Quality Course

I travel quite a bit every year to play golf. Be it, Arizona, California, Idaho, Oregon or Washington. I expected very little from this course. I was surprised. A member of the staff greeted us before we could even get out of our vehicle. He loaded our clubs, provided great info, and then directed us to the pro shop. The young lady inside, Kelly, was awesome. She saw that I had a GOGOLF card and, just like the young man who greeted us, was totally professional, but with a smile on her face and a genuine desire to make our day a good one. The course was outstanding. During my stay, our group had played eight courses in eight days. This was the best course we played! If you are in and around Las Vegas (which offers many excellent courses) I highly recommend the best course in the area.

Great course

Course layout was good and challenging. Course was in great shape for January. Staff was friendly. No cart beverage service. Would have liked to see a marshall too. Only negative was pace of play. Although we played in 4 hours, we waited on almost every hole after the first 5. Slow group ahead of us.
