Primm Valley Golf Club's Desert Course is a Tom Fazio work of art that will have golfers on a journey through the desert that consists of some of the most brilliant vistas and landscape, and a golf challenge that will have them coming back for more.

Tom Fazio once again proved he is one of the most talented golf course designers in the world with his brilliant creation at Primm Valley Golf Club's Desert Course. Golfers will be transfixed by the desert landscape.

Primm Valley G.C. seemingly rises out of nowhere out by the Nevada-California state line, and the Desert Course gives players a sense of isolation where a golfer can enjoy the amazing desert landscape to its full extent.

There are no tricks at this challenging run, just golfer against Fazio's brilliance and the desert's natural hazards.

Also, Primm Valley Golf Club goes the extra mile for golfers, offering a 22-acre practice facility complete with a double-ended circular driving range, target greens, chipping and pitching greens with sand bunkers, and practice putting greens. The best part? Use of the facility is complimentary with a guest's green fees.

So when you hit the state line, don't miss a chance to play one of the most dazzling and direct golf courses in all of the California and Nevada deserts, as Primm Valley Golf Club's Desert Course will be a challenge to all levels of golfer.

    What a goat ranch. Everything about the experience was bad with the exception of the outside personal and bartenders. The "pro"/shirt folder Dustin was arrogant and rude. Course had potential but obviously either mismanaged or out of money. WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY.

    I am not usually a a high expectancy person but golfing at the Primm desert course was one of the worst golfing experiences I have ever had. The course itself was in terrible shape when the reservation was made nobody said it was cart path only. The so-called sand traps were like hitting the ball on pie crusts it was like hitting the ball on a cover and the balls rolled back to the edges or on some of them it went through the crust and the ball would have mud on it. It would be like someone was pranking U . Nobody in our 4some could find a ball washer. There was no cart person. When we were done with the round there was nobody at the bag drop. There is more to this but it gets weirder as U go along. If U want to look at the bright side of playing this course , we were by ourselves nobody in the back or front of us played 9-12-17

    Beautiful layouts on the holes. Challenging enough, greens in great shape. Rolling fairways...staff very helpful and carts have GPS for accurate yardages. Loved it!

    played both the Desert and Lakes course 2 days apart,the Desert one was great !!! Lakes was good and rolling hills,greens were good as well. The course staff was friendly and helpful. Will golf here every time we are in Vegas !!! Price was great, I think alot of the courses closer to Vegas are overpriced and not that much better. Ray Sonnenberg Valparaiso,IN. Hdcp. 7

    Played Mar 1st 2014, course in horrible shape, fairways hardly had any grass, greens had been fertilized,not cut,inconsistent speed, tee boxes very uneven, shaggy and covered with debris, very disappointed, don't waste your money playing here, go to Paiute, Las Vegas National or several others to get your monies worth.

    Both courses were in fair shape (fairways) greens were true and fast. If only they had some common sense and a clue how to treat their guests the rating would be a 5. My guess is because of their remote location once you have traveled for 1-3 hrs. or more to get out there the leadership at this "par 4 golf" run facility not only don't care if you return but encourage their employee s to make sure of it.
