People complain there is absolutely nothing to do in Pahrump for adults and that is the farthest from the truth. The valley has a wide spectrum of sports to choose from and most of them are outdoors.
The town of Pahrump has two golf courses to choose from. There is Lake View Executive Golf Course, located in the center of town at 1471 E. Mount Charleston Drive and there is Mountain Falls Golf Course located at the southern edge of town at 5001 Clubhouse Dr.
The Lake View Executive Golf Course is the shorter of the two courses. It has 13 par 3s and five par 4s and the par for the course is 59. Lake View considers itself more of a walking course.
Mountain Falls is home to the Trojans golf team and is the larger of the two golf courses with a par of 72. The course offers amenities like golf carts with GPS and a golf professional, Jason Pomroy. The course is managed by Par 4 Golf Management, which also manages seven other golf courses in Las Vegas. Both courses offer discount rates to Pahrump residents. Contact Mountain Falls at (775) 537-6553 and contact Lake View at (775) 727-4040.
