No question, Nevada's golf courses are as challenging as they are spectacular. And without doubt, this is due in no small part to the state's daunting landscapes and sheer physical beauty.
Throughout the southern desert, seas of green caress the rocky terrain. Breathtaking oasis, pleasantly warm in winter, and designed by the game's finest - Dye, Stamps, Palmer, Fazio, to name but a few. Within a two hour drive of Las Vegas you'll find 50 of these masterpieces. Among them, championship courses like the Tournament Players Club at Summerlin and The Canyons, home of the PGA's Las Vegas Invitational.
Farther north, in, on and around the majestic mountains and pristine lakes, you'll find another 50 courses, all as magnificent as they are challenging. Take the Montreux Golf and Country Club, for example, a private paradise and home of the Reno-Tahoe Open. Or the Edgewood Tahoe, where the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship is played. These are no ordinary courses. They are man-made works of art, painstakingly designed to complement Mother Nature's own miracles. And don't miss The Divine 9 around Carson City, each course more heavenly than the next.
No matter if it's north or south, public or private, Nevada's golf courses are simply some of the finest in the land. In fact, Golf Digest names 5 Nevada courses in its list of America's 100 Greatest Public Courses. And Golf Week has 5 Silver State locations on its list of America's Top 100 Resort Courses. That's a lot more than our fair share. And let's not forget one of the real perks of playing golf in Nevada. Besides the magnificent courses themselves, there's just so much else to do here once the round's over. From the undivided pampering of some of the world's leading spas to the bright lights and non-stop action of the night, there's a lot more to a Nevada golf vacation than just golf.
It is Nevada, after all !!
