Only 20 minutes north of the 'Strip', this Gary Panks design features a front nine that weaves through hundreds of pear trees and shrubs, while the back nine meanders through large pines and locust trees. A gentle 384-yard, par 4 kicks off the round to get you settled. But beware that the deep bunkers, rolling fairways, tight greens and well-placed water hazzards will bring you back to reality.
