Wolf Creek Golf Resort

Published in the July 2015 Issue Published online: Jul 14, 2015 Courses

The Lowdown: It has been called one of the most remarkable and most visually spectacular courses in the world. And from the very first glance, every thoroughly pampered visitor to Wolf Creek Golf Club understands why.?An easy one hour drive northeast of Las Vegas in Mesquite, Nevada, this amazing facility was called the "Most Spectacular New Course in America" by Affluent Golfer magazine when it opened for play back in 2000. It's also ranked 22nd on Golf Digest's list of the country's top 100 public facilities. The course winds up, down and through dramatic red rock canyons, and from the back tees requires generous quantities of both power and precision. One of those back tees stands as tall as an 11-storey building! Yet even the novice player can have a round chock full of smiles by selecting the front set of tees where forced carries are few and far between. Perhaps the ultimate challenge for any and all players is focusing on each and every shot while constantly surrounded by breathtaking vistas that are a photo op waiting to happen.?Those vistas are equally mesmerizing from the Terrace at Wolf Creek, the club's new restaurant and banquet facility that was designed to accommodate the foursome as well as all varieties of formal and casual events.

 

FYI: Golf at Wolf Creek is always an extraordinary experience and a must play for any golfer. Now, Wolf Creek’s Red Carpet Packages make it even more attractive to tee it up at this highly-rated layout as well as other popular nearby courses.
