Located a short 90 minutes northeast of Las Vegas and The Strip, is the town of Mesquite. This area has long been a popular choice to Canadians for great, affordable golf. You'll find incredible course designs (donâ€™t forget your camera), wonderful vistas from every tee box, lots of annual sunshine and warm temperatures. You'll also experience warm hospitality, an array of exciting nightlife and much more. But it's the Mesquite golf courses that have propelled this desert oasis into one of the fastest growing golf destinations in North America. With over 12 stunning courses within 60 minutes of each other and fantastic accommodation options this market will continue to grow as a top-notch golf destination well into the future. As exciting as the Mesquite golf courses are to play, don't forget to journey 60 minutes north in Utah. Here you will find additional courses that will enhance your Mesquite golf package. Local hotel options are limited there but fun with nightly entertainment, casinos and plenty of dining choices.
Suggested Mesquite golf courses to play:
CasaBlanca GC: located behind the CasaBlanca Resort and Casino, this traditional lay-out is a great opening day choice on your Mesquite golf trip. There is not too much trouble on the course but wayward tee shots will lead to issues on your scorecard.
FalconRidge GC: this design defines Nevada golf as it winds its way around hills and in into valleys. Leave your driver in the bag on the big holes as prime position off the tee is critical to a good score.
Oasis GC: 36 holes of pure golf fun. These courses need to be added to your Mesquite golf package itinerary. You'll find some of the best par 3's in the State along with winding valleys and elevation drops.
Sand Hollow GC: located an hour from Mesquite in southern Utah, this course is worth the drive. The back 9 holes are probably the best desert golf you will ever play with tight greens, elevation drops, mountain views and great conditions.
Keep in mind that during the fall (September and October) Mesquite golf courses will be involved in a maintenance process called overseeding. They donâ€™t all do it at the same time but course availability and quality may be limited for 2 to 3 weeks.
