Desert Jewel

Where Las Vegas - - THE GUIDE | GOLF -

Moun­tain Falls Golf Club is one of South­ern Ne­vada’s hid­den trea­sures. Lo­cated 45 min­utes from Las Vegas, this su­pe­rior course is sur­rounded by pic­turesque moun­tain ranges, wide open spa­ces and lush rolling hills. Rated #24 in the na­tion by Golf Ad­vi­sor, course yardages range from 5,415-7,082 yards, mak­ing the course at­trac­tive to all skill lev­els. A nar­row creek slic­ing through the par 4 14th hole gob- bles up short drives while a pond catches ev­ery­thing to the left. The tricky 16th hole plays longer than the yardage. The par 4 18th hole catches weak shots on the green in a pond. The par 4 fourth hole tests your nerves with its sur­round­ing wa­ter fea­tures. The slopes on the eighth hole make it an­other test of nerves. Those wa­ter fea­tures catch ev­ery­thing. 5001 S. Club­house Drive, 775.537.6553.
