Played on 6/18 with a 6ish tee time. Wow, its been some time since I've been on my home course and I've missed it. While they push themselves as a resort course, AP has a very locals feel to it. Pro shop and F&B staff are super friendly and on point.
Course is in better shape than some other in the same price range. Tee boxes need some work but are in good shape. Fairways are lush, but the early morning time meant some wet/soaked areas. Bunkers are typical for Vegas, a bit crusty, some pebbles, and thin. Greens were the slowest I've seen in some time here. They looked a bit fuzzy, maybe just need a cut to get them in shape.
Overall, I'm never disappointed at AP. Mountain is the more challenging of the 2 courses, but the par 3s are not memorable. The finishing 2 holes on both 9s are challenging. Worth a look.» Close

Finished my SoCal golf orgy with the GK Plays on Sunday, 6/6. As with every GK event I've played, it was a fun round with John, Elijah, and Andrew. Olivas definitely plays to the environment, with overcast skies and a strong onshore breeze. While trees are not usually on "links" courses, they fit in here, offering a bit of challenge on drives and approach shots. I find it incredible this is a city owned course. Absolutely great conditions and a tough test. Whoever set the holes in the morning had a rough night and took it out on us, Sunday tournament pins all day, very challenging.
Tee boxes were mostly leveled with little amount of divots. Fairways were lush with no thin areas. Bunkers were filled with beach like sand that fits the area. Rough was gradual, thinner and more natural as you leave the fairways. Greens were incredible, very undulating, and medium speed. I would be scared if they got them rolling faster.
I haven't played Olivas in 10 years and had few memories, but wow, what a course. I can see why it gets so much play compared to others in the area. While the course may need a real clubhouse, I rather they pump the money into the course. If I was a local, I would love the course and can handle sitting outside after the round, enjoying a cold adult beverage.» Close

Played on Saturday, 6/5, with an 1p tee time. I arrived a little early and immediately fell in love with this place. I sat on the patio, just feet from the 1st tee, while enjoying a drink while soaking in the mountain and course views. It has an old-school feel to it and I could see myself playing here a lot if I was a local.
Course was in really good shape. Tee boxes were pretty good, with some divots on the par 3s. Fairways were lush with some roll. The rough changed from a little thick near the fairway to just natural as you got farther away, so some hardpan spots way away from the lushness. Bunkers were outstanding when compared to the thin desert ones I'm use to playing. The greens were faster than I was ready for, but consistent with the practice green near the clubhouse. They rolled smooth but had some ball marks.
I loved the design of the course. I found it an easy walk. Classic feel, tree lined, and some large fringe areas that start 30 yards short of the green. It took me a couple holes to realize the almost false front appearance as the it's cut to green height. The only bad part of the course was the pace. We started about 20 minutes late, and slogged to a 5+ hour round.» Close

Played on Friday, 6/4, with a 11:20 tee time and joined itslikeimsayin on a GolfMoose deal for $50 with replay. Unfortunately due to the 5 hour round, the replay was out of the question by the time we made the turn. I arrived early and enjoyed an incredible breakfast burrito while overlooking the beautiful 9th green area.
Course plays better than it looks. The Bermuda fairways are coming back, with spots of tan and green. Bunkers had some light fluffy sand. Greens were faster than they appeared and ran pretty smooth. Rough was variable, but most thin and just above fairway length.
Like Mark, I want to like this course more than I did. I keep describing it as quirky. There's way too many blind shots that if you don't know where the group in front of you is at, you're hitting it over their heads or worse. There are some beautiful views and some fun holes, but you definitely need a few rounds or a local to know where to hit it.» Close

Played National twice in the past week, Thursday 6/3 at 6:10a and Tuesday 6/8 after 3p. $60 in the early morning and $29 super twilight. Pace was great for both rounds, I walked as a 3 early in about 3:20 and rode as a 3 in about the same.
Course conditions were about the same, outside the water on the course in the early morning. Tee boxes were level with very little damage. Fairways were lush and the rough was about 2-3 inches. Bunkers had some of the best sand in Vegas, beach-like, heavy when wet and thinner dried out. The greens have issues with spots of dead areas. They placed the holes away from the areas, but occasionally had to putt through it.
Service was easy. Bar was open early and late, with great service and prices. Easy check-in and cart guy met me the in parking lot to load the clubs.
I love National and it screams Old Vegas. Reserved placards on the bar for Frank, Sammy, and Dean. Course is tree lined but pretty wide open with some tough par 3s and par 5s. Only down part is the neighborhood surrounding the course has suffered some as the town as grown, however, I think its a good Vegas option.» Close
