Set among the deep canyons and arroyos of Las Vegas is Badlands Golf Club, home to 27 holes of championship golf, including the Desperado/Diablo Course. At 6,926-yards long from the championship tees -- and a par 72 -- the course is quite the test. Its tricky pin placement makes it challenging target golf. Accuracy is a must. Of note is the par-4 third, featuring a lake on the right; the deceptive, par-3 fifth, which plays uphill; and the memorable, par-4 15th. Conservative play pays off on the 15th, with a tricky shot over a ravine waiting after your tee shot.

    Extremely disappointed! Had a valid voucher, called ahead for a tee time, mentioned a restriction on the voucher! Was told by Nick, they would honor the voucher despite the restriction. Wanted to be sure that the voucher would be ok! Asked again, their reply - "no problem".

    Showed up with my boss, the golf was to be my treat for his positive recommendation for a promotion. Well, the voucher would not be honored, had to have my boss pay for his fee as I did not have enough cash to cover everything!

    Obviously, the situation that Nick created left me in a very bad place! Nick then denied every saying the voucher was ok.

    So, why would anyone ever return to this poorly managed, lying, unprofessional course? I always believed you live by your word - the course should be renamed "BadPeople" course.

    The course was in okay shape, the fairways needed work. Not worth the cost!

    Only positive, the assistant manager gave us a couple of drink tickets.

    Very much enjoyed playing Badlands. Got on thru VIP golf and really enjoyed. Staff was very professional and service was very good. Would make a return trip next Vegas trip for sure

    Terrible customer service and the flow was not great. They have no organized system for letting people off so every tee box was a ten minute wait to tee off. Too many other great courses in Vegas to waster your time here.
