Primm Valley Golf Club boasts two championship courses designed by Tom Fazio.
The Desert Course opened in May 1998 and was built to showcase the beautiful desert landscaping and providing a stark contrast to the almost-tropical Lakes Course. Fazio fully utilized the rugged landscape and scenic views offered by the mountains in the distance. Slightly more demanding of the player’s ability, it measures 7,131 yards with a par of 72. The course is accented with palm and mesquite trees, as well as colorful cactus and desert wildflowers to give it a true desert feeling. Where water was used on the Lakes Course, vast stretches of waste bunkers border the fairways on seven holes. Water does come into play on five holes, and narrow fairways with elevation changes and large, well-bunkered greens test even the most skilled players. The fairways are generous and offer some room for error, making the course more appealing to beginners.
The Lakes Course opened in February of 1997 and was quickly given the ranking as one of the Top Ten Best New Courses that same year by Golf Digest Magazine. The Lakes Course will take you out of the desert and into another world. Complete with dense groves of tall pine trees, an extensive lakes and river system (in play on 11 holes) and acre-upon-acre of beautifully manicured green rye grass interrupted only by numerous bunkers. Generous fairways that slope towards the middle make the course very player friendly, but don’t be fooled. This 6,945-yard par-71 course is a challenge that puts even the best golfer to the test. The undulating, well-bunkered greens and plenty of water hazards will make it difficult to tame this beautiful beast.
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.
