Played Primm Valley (Lakes) for the second time this past Friday when driving home from a work trip in Las Vegas. Got out a bit early as the guy in the pro shop gave me the twilight rate with cart of $55, which is totally worth it for this fun course, even with re-seeding just a week or so away so they’re letting it dry out a bit.

Just an FYI, but the Desert course (which I wanted to play since I hadn’t before) is currently closed during re-seeding. Should be open in a few weeks when they close down the Lakes course.

As for the course itself, well you can imagine that just a week or so before major maintenance that they’ve let it go a good bit, but it’s still remarkably playable. There are a lot of dried out areas in the fairways and they’re certainly not a dark, lush green, but most lies were more than okay and not a problem to hit from at any time. The rough is a little thicker and greener right now and not penal. Bunkers were okay at this point and the tee boxes are a little bit beat up but nothing too terrible.

Greens were actually still in good shape for the most part, but there were many with large sections cut out of them ahead of the maintenance. They ran a bit slower than usual according to my local playing partner that I paired up with at the first tee, but I still found that they rolled quite true and held shots predominantly well. Good enough for the circumstances for sure.

Additional Thoughts

Layout is a super cool one with many interesting holes, lots of risk-reward opportunities and no two holes exactly alike. I like the variety of the par 3s and the par 5s are quite fun to play as well. You can score well here for sure, but you can also get in a lot of trouble. Oh hey, that sounds like golf.

I would definitely call ahead though to make sure that this or the other course are in play right now as aeration season begins. But if you do make it out, it’s still a fun day under the sun. And one last thing if Johnny is reading this review – Primm is in California, not Nevada!
