Opening in February of 1997, the course underwent extensive renovation in the summer of 2007. All 18 greens were completely rebuilt and topped with new bent grass, putting surfaces that provide a TOUR quality aspect to the round with speeds planned to roll around a 10. Aesthetic and ecological enhancements were also made.
A Golf Digest Top 50 Resort Course – This is a fun course playing to 6,810 yards from the tips. It has a Slope/Rating of 70.6/125 and offers three sets of tees and a par of 71. Generous mounding separates the fairways and can often result in lucky breaks, as a hastily stuck ball can bounce back into the fairway.
Plenty of bunkers, water and some narrow fairway stretches are great equalizers to provide a fair challenge to both long ball hitters and those with a good short game. This is a course that rewards good course management skills and provides players of all abilities a fun and enjoyable experience … one being that you may well use every club in your bag.
The greens are challenging and are reflective of the “Dye-abolical” contouring for which Dye-designs are renown. There are even railroad tie bunkers, tricky undulation and plenty of breaks to keep your putting eye sharp. View our hole-by-hole video tour of Desert Pines today.
A little known secret: Unless you’ve experienced it firsthand, the wind can pick up ferociously at any time in Las Vegas. There is nothing more unpleasant than getting a couple holes into your round and experiencing fierce 20-30 mph wind gusts. That is not a worry at Desert Pines – the property sits lower than any other Las Vegas golf course and has thousands of mature pine trees lining each and every fairway that act as your personal force field when mother nature imposes a sneak attack on your Las Vegas golf vacation.
