Las Vegas is known for the casinos, shows and a busy nightlife, but there’s more to the city. Golf is bountiful in Vegas and provides golfers with a true desert experience. One of those clubs is called Desert Rose Golf Course and it’s found about 20 minutes from the Strip. It’s located in the Old Las Vegas area and was one of the first courses built in Vegas.
Joe Lee and Dick Wilson designed the course and brought their expertise to Vegas. These are the same designers of famous courses, such as Bay Hill, Callaway Gardens and Doral. This par 71 course features a traditional layout and provides plenty of challenge for all skill levels. With the player-friendly features of the Desert Rose course, everybody can enjoy their round.
The back tees measure over 6,500 yards and this 18-hole track provides manicured fairways, beautiful scenery, challenging greens and more. The most difficult hole on the course is the 607-yard par five fourth hole. This hole isn’t just long, but it’s also very tight with out-of-bounds on the left and a water hazard down the right. Not only will this hole test you physically, but also mentally.
After your round, you can relax at the Desert Rose Grill for a meal and a drink. The grill features a variety of entrees, sandwiches, snacks and beverages. You can also pick up beverages and snacks from the fully stocked beverage cart as it makes its way around the course.
