Las Vegas. Nevada (March 20, 2011)–There are two Tom Fazio Las Vegas golf courses at Primm Valley Golf Club which is located about 30 miles from the Las Vegas Strip. The Lakes and Desert courses both feature Fazio flare and beauty, and offer some of the best values found in the Las Vegas Golf Region. Through May 31, 2011, golfers can reserve official Las Vegas golf packages for just $149. These Las Vegas golf packages include a round of golf, room at a Terrible's Primm Valley Casino resort, a 50-minute spa treatment, a steak and lobster dinner at GP's Restaurant, plus two drinks on the course. —By Brian Hurlburt.
Official description of the Lakes course from PrimmValleyGolf.com: "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." the Desert course is also worth the play. More on that course in a future article.
