Primm Valley is about 45 minutes from Vegas at the California border. Two very good and different 18 hole championship courses here, the Desert and the Lakes, both Tom Fazio designs. The Desert plays to 7,131 yards, 138 slope, and is routed through the desert landscape scrub with a scattering of trees, and water in play on only five holes. It’s the tougher of the two courses, and a typical desert layout, but with some elevation change. Its routing has plenty of large and long waste bunkers, mid-sized to large, well guarded greens. The Lakes is shorter at 6,945 yards, 130 slope from the tips and is Fazio as well, as it’s names says, has a lot of water-11 holes. It’s more of a parkland style of course with some trees lining the fairway, more forgiving off the tee, but still plenty of trouble with water and a good amount of bunkering.
Two great layouts at the Primm Valley Golf Club, and well worth the drive out from Las Vegas, or if you’re passing through on I-10.
