The course was ranked the #5 in 2013 as the top course in Nevada, and is often considered the second-best course in Mesquite behind Wolf Creek.
Every hole is unique at Conestoga Creek, with water, sand, trees, rocks and 51 bunkers strategically placed around the course. The par 72 plays a whopping 7,232 yards from the tips and if you steer away from the fairways it will often mean trouble with a punch out or awkward lie.
Hole number four is the signature at Conestoga, a 394-yard par 4 known as “The Fence Hole”. You will have just 250 yards of fairway before running out of room. The fairway stops the hole drops 25 feet down a cliff where it picks up again.
You must decide to layup off the tee box and have a downhill approach shot, or muscle a drive over the cliff and have a wedge shot in. It is called “The Fence Hole” because, at the top of the cliff, a wood fence runs across reminiscent of the Old West which is the theme at Conestoga.
