What can be better than getting out of town and teeing it up on a world-class Tom Fazio-designed golf course? Well, we have the answer. How about teeing it up on two Fazio designs at the same resort on the same day… and for a great price? Welcome to Primm Valley Golf Club. –by Bill Bowman, Las Vegas Golf Insider staff.
Play the first 18 at the regular rate and a replay is $35 for non-Clark County residents and $25 for Clark County residents. Check the official website for rates at your time of play and residence status.
The two Fazio designs at Primm are located a short 30-minute jaunt from Las Vegas just inside the California border. On these two courses, golfers will find wide-open spaces that will take them to a tranquil setting away from the bright lights. There’s no housing. It’s just you and the golf courses.
Once on the courses, players will find two distinctly different layouts, hence the names: Lakes and Desert.
Both are inviting yet challenging and are worth the play.
The Lakes Course is a par-71 design that is 6,945 yards from the tips. It more than lives up to its name as water comes into play on 11 holes. And the water challenge starts early with the second hole, a risk/reward par-5 masterpiece. At 530-yards, the hole winds its way around a deep-blue pond.
Going for the green in two? Good luck…you may need it. Along with the pond, there are bunkers everywhere around the green to grab those errant shots. And the challenges keep going as the risk/reward options pop up throughout the round.
Then there’s the Desert Course. At 7,131 yards, the par-72 layout plays over, around and through desert landscaping–again, more than living up to its name. While it is more of a desert course, there’s still enough water on the 18 holes to get players’ attention and put an emphasis on shot-making accuracy. And while Desert is the name, there are limited forced carries and fairways are plenty wide.
So, if you’re thinking there’s nothing better than playing a Tom Fazio course, think again. Primm Valley can double the fun factor…and the challenges…when players tee it up at both courses on the same day.
An don’t forget, playing both courses the same day will be a money-saving venture.
