I can only help with half your question. I played Desert Pines about this time last year.  We had a great time because it was golf in Vegas and that is hard to beat. However, I was not that impressed with Desert Pines. The greens were extremely pock marked and I wasn't a huge fan of the layout. It was an "ok" course IMHO.  We also played Bali Hai, which is a sister course to Desert Pines that I really enjoyed but was more expensive.

I have never played TPC so I cannot say, but when I return to Vegas I will play different courses and more than likely will not return to Desert Pines.

Stay away from desert pines. Not even near the same league as any TPC course. Desert pines is over priced and never in good condition.

Neither (although if you can get on TPC Summerlin, that's another story)

Try the Legacy, or Paiute.

There are lots of great courses in that town, why is it only that those two are on the table?

Agreed. For what they're charging at this time of year ($179) TPC is overrated. It is a decent course but not for that kind of cash. Still think Paiute is the best bang for your buck in the Vegas area.

I think he is going on the company dime and the consensus was narrowed down to those 2 courses or one called Cascata

If the only choices are these 2 then it's no contest, TPC-LV.  Desert Pines isn't worth $50 let alone what they usually gouge tourists with their ridiculous green fees.  I agree with other posters that there are much better options including the best in Paiute out there.

It's no contest.

Cascata is a Premier Golf Course.

very exclusive and very difficult to get on.

If it's the company dime then it's Cascata

I was in Vegas last week, and I was booked to play Desert Pines but I posted a similar thread in another forum and was told by the people there that DP is not worth the $100 I was supposed to pay, locals only pay $45, and that the greens were not well-kept, and it is very narrow with tight fairways. I switched my round to Las Vegas National and had no regrets, I really liked the course, you could tell it had seen better days but the bunkers and greens were in great shape, and it is more like Florida golf than desert golf but that was fine with me. I paid $104 and have no regrets. Can't beat the location either if you're staying on the strip, so I would defenitely recommend it.

my brother played Nov. 20th and he said there was a lot of divot marks on the green and it just seemed the greens were spotty in some spots in comparison to a stunningly beautiful fairways and tees

I played about a week a half maybe two before that it was flawless, the greens were firm and fast. Wonder what happened.
