Recent Awards or What You Are Most Proud About The Course?
Rated by 4 1/2 Stars by Golf Digest and considered one of the Best Courses in Las Vegas by numerous publications.
What Is The Signature, Most Talked About, or Most Photographed Hole?
#16 and #18. The Par 3 16th hole is a breathtaking hole with water surrounding the whole left side and the beautiful Spring Mountains as the backdrop.
The Par 4 18th hole is one of the more memorable finishing holes in the city. Water surrounds the left side of the hole and this long Par 4 has perfectly placed bunkers on both sides of the fairway as well as by the green. With the clubhouse and an outdoor terrace in the background, this is a perfect way to end a great round!
What Is Your Favorite Hole? Any Tips to Play It?
The 18th hole is my favorite and my least favorite. It is a great tough finishing hole! It's my least favorite because it's a tough finishing hole to end your round on! If there's wind, it's usually into you making the hole even longer. The 2nd shot is where it gets tricky with a narrow opening and water surrounding the whole left side. Aim right side of the green and make sure to pick enough club. Par is a great score here!
Must Have Dish or Drink after the round at the 19th Hole?
A nice cold beer and some Jalapeno Cilantro Chicken Wings! Don't forget to grab one of our delicious breakfast sandwiches and a tasty Bloody Mary before you head out! You won't regret it :)
