Desert Pines Golf Club
Las Vegas, USA
Golf club overview
Having opened its doors to golfers in 1997, Desert Pines Golf Club has undergone extensive renovation, including many green re-designs. The course is listed in Golf Digest’s Top 50 Resort Courses and is a rising star of the Las Vegas golf scene.
You will know Desert Pines is all about golfers from the moment you walk through the doors of the clubhouse. Take the time to view the brilliant photo display of legends from the 30’s and 40’s. Out on the course, it’s just as impressive. Generous mounding separates the fairways and can often result in lucky breaks, as a hastily struck ball can bounce back into the fairway. Plenty of bunkers, water hazards and some narrow fairway stretches are great equalisers to provide a fair challenge to long hitters and those with a good short game. The greens are challenging and are reflective of the ‘Dye-abolical’ contouring for which Dye designs are renowned. Adding a little game excitement to the round, Desert Pines offers a ‘Beat The Pro’ challenge for all golfers who wish to test their skill against course personnel on a par-3 ‘closest to the pin’ contest for credit in the golf shop. Ranking in Golf Digest’s top 50 makes this a must-play course during your golf holiday in Las Vegas.
