golfworld-readers-choiceWhen you first enter the clubhouse, you will know Desert Pines Las Vegas is for golfers, especially those who treasure the history of the game.  Take a moment and admire some of the golf legends from the 30’s and 40’s that line the walls of the hallway as you head towards the golf shop.  Walter Hagen and Francis Ouimet are joined there by Champion Claude Harmon at the 1948 Masters on Augusta National’s #13, pant legs rolled up and hitting out of wet marsh area. There is Bobby Jones, smoking a cigar and dapper Gene Sarazan, sitting on the grass as a spectator. Desert Pines was built for, and is run by, people who love and respect this great game and it’s history.

Opening in February of 1997, the course underwent extensive renovation in the summer of 2007. All 18 greens were completely rebuilt and topped with a bent grass putting surface that provides a tour quality experience.  Aesthetic and ecological enhancements were also made.

Desert Pines Las Vegas was named a best upscale golf course in “Golf Digest Top 50 Resort Course”.  Desert Pines Las Vegas also was host to the Golf Channel’s Big Break II.  From championship tees to three sets of tee areas, Desert Pines Las Vegas offers a 71 par course spread over 6,810 yards that is the perfect balance between challenge and fun.  The generous mounding separates the fairways which can result in lucky breaks from those errant shots and keep the game amusing and fun for all skill levels.  

desert-pines-hole-by-hole-video-tourPlenty 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 and may very well require you to use every club in your bag.

The greens are challenging and are reflective of the “Dye-abolical” contouring for which Dye-designs are renown. Of course you will find his trademark railroad ties throughout the property, tricky undulations in the green and plenty of breaks to keep your putting eye sharp.

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.
