Played on Friday, 2/17, with a 7:51 tee time and joined by famed and my buddy Mike B. Paid $60 county resident rate. Course is one of the few where you can still find a tee time less than a week out. I went a couple years without playing here but have now teed it up at least once a month during the winter. Course was busy but I think it was mostly frisbee golfers getting in a practice round before this week's big tournament (more on that). We finished sub 3:30, including a long stop at the turn for food.
Course has dormant but painted fairways and tee boxes. Tee boxes are level with little amount of damage. Fairways are firm with plenty of roll. Rough is non-painted dormant with some occasion winter grass mixed in. Bunkers have been improved with new sand since I played at the beginning of the year. Mostly fluffy, but the green side on 15 was thin. Greens ran smooth but slower than they have been. Overall, a decent playing experience.
Wildhorse is a muni, owned by the city of Henderson, with a long history: 5-6 name changes, a PGA Tour event, etc. The clubhouse still has that 70s feel, food & beverage prices are pretty good for a golf course, and the course is extremely walker friendly. It's also an Audubon Society certified Sanctuary, which can be seen around the trees and ponds on the course. It's not a destination course by any means, but it's a good locals track and may be worth a try if you have time.
**Course is closed 2/19-2/26 for the Las Vegas Classic, a huge Frisbee golf tournament. Apparently, the Wildhorse Frisbee golf course is the premier course in the country. They only allow Frisbee golf in the first 45 minutes of the morning and after 3:30p, so you usually don't see them around.» Close
