Reviews of Laughlin Ranch Golf Club – Bullhead City, AZ

Review – “The course is in good shape, I’d say very good shape for a desert course, I’ve driven by some in the area that look pretty bad! As previous reviewer Al A. described – it’s a desert links style course, with several elevation changes. They have a good variety of tee box placements – and as Al said, the course is interesting as a whole.” —Bob

Review – “I played there last Saturday 3/8/14 and was very surprised. For a par three it was very well kept. However mother nature was a bitch 25-30 mpg gust . Very friendly staff and very clean . Of course the price was fair too.” —Mitchell

Review – “I played this course in the dead of summer, and found the fee with cart to be terrific. However, my complaint does lie with the staff. Because of the summer heat, they closed the pro shop at 1 pm, leaving no one to buy water from.” —Hacker

Reviews of Chaparral Golf and Country Club – Bullhead City, AZ

Review – “Hubby and I played 18 holes here on our Laughlin getaway over Easter weekend. This is a funny course – it’s 9 holes, but there are two sets of tee boxes, so that you can play twice and it “feels” like it’s 18 individual holes. Everyone here was SOOOOO nice and friendly and we got 2 rounds of 18 holes, and a ticket for a hot dog & beer for only $65, including cart.” —Sarah

Review – “Five stars for the price and friendly staff. We signed up for the online discount and got 18 holes and a cart for $8/person over the Christmas holidays. It is not Palm Springs, but with the discount it is a gem for Laughlin visiters who want a bit of fresh air and exercise. We will certainly go back.” —Janet

Huukan Golf Club – Fort Mojave, AZ – 21 Minute Drive

Huukan Golf Club – Fort Mojave, AZHuukan Golf Club in Fort Mojave, AZ (formerly Desert Lakes Golf Course), has a new name is the same great golf course that you have come to appreciate for a fair round of golf — out of the wind and very walkable.

Course Overview

Huukan Golf Club is an 18-hole course in Fort Mohave, Arizona that features 6,569 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72 . The course rating is 70.5 and it has a slope rating of 119. Designed by Robert L. Baldock and Bob E. Baldock, the course opened in 1989 and is just now going through a change of ownership – and a change of attitude!

This course is a joy to play for golfers of any caliber. Its medium length offers the average golfer a challenge without becoming a frustrating experience. As the old course name – Desert Lakes –indicates, you should be prepared for water hazards (along with well-place bunkers) that offer not only a more challenging round, but add to the beauty of this course with its mountain backdrop.

This is the only area course with tree-lined fairways, which help block the ever-present desert wind. Narrow fairways and small greens will test — but not frustrate — your golf skills and abilities. READ MORE

Review – “Had a great time, people are friendly course was fun.” —Ponch

Review – “This is a nice course. Fairways and greens were in very good shape. The greens are fast compared to what I’m used to in Wisconsin. Fairways maybe a little narrower than average. Fairways & greens only are irrigated. The rough is desert.” —Anon

Review – “Hard to complain about anything for the rate I paid. For less than a cart rental fee in Canada I got the cart, range balls and 18 holes of golf. One course condition were the greens were patchy in areas (not bad for January), but fast. Course quite open of the tee and lots of open desert if the driver wasn’t working. Nice afternoon in Arizona.” —bmx

Great views of Lake Havasu on several holes. Tee times were 12 minutes apart so pace of play was awesome. The greens fee came with a $10 voucher for food and drink at the clubhouse.

Reviews of Boulder Creek Golf Club – Boulder City, NV

Review – “We had a quick 5 day getaway and played golf 3 days at 3 different courses. Boulder Creek was our last day and by far the best experience. I can’t say enough about the condition of the fairways and greens – absolutely amazing. We played the Eagle and Coyote 9′s. After the round, we drove to the Hoover Dam, for some sightseeing – conveniently about 10 minutes away. Player tip: Leave your driver in the bag and tee off with a fairway wood. It’s worth it to keep your ball on the fairway and let it roll.” —Vludlow

Review – “Very nice course, nice layout, practice facility in good shape. Greens were very fast, fairways were in amazing shape, with good roll out. Sand is different than I’m used to, much more coarse and more difficult to get out of, but otherwise in good shape. Liked it enough we played it again the next day.” —CrossCountryGal

Review – “The course is beautiful and fun to play. The play time was extremely slow (during the week). There are no marshals to check on player speed and the foursome in front of us could not have played any slower. It appears that people that play here do not know how to repair divets, and especially ball marks and shoe marks on the greens. It is impossible to putt in any straight path.” —Anonymous
