Revere Golf Club, Concord
Course Review by J. Pery on August 26th, 2009:
I couldn’t wait to play this place. One of the guys from VIP
said he got married out there, because of the views of the strip
and the elevation changes. I brought my camera so I would be prepared.
He was right; I started taking pictures once I hit this section
called Anthem. There are some areas on Anthem Parkway were you can
pull to the side of the road and get some great shots of the course
I drove to the bag drop and the guys welcomed us, grab our clubs,
and got them setup on our carts. This place had cart signs down
for us and we were only three golfers. The clubhouse is amazing,
because you can see a panoramic view of the entire city with the
strip right in the middle. You are only about 25 minutes from the
strip so you can still see quite a lot. I definitely took some more
Anyway, I got checked in for the group and we were on our way.
I had to grab a logo ball for the collection. The range is on the
other side of the facility, but it is a nice little ride so I lit
my cigar to get my day started.
Concord’s #1 tee box is right by the range so that made
it easy. It starts off with great views and a pretty good elevation
change playing from basically every box; but from the back tees
it was a really cool start. They say this one is the easier of the
two. The Lexington course was closed for overseeding. They are not
going to overseed Concord this year, so it is a great option when
everything else is closed or on cart path only restrictions during
Mid August through October.
Concord has a bunch of really nice holes, but number 18 is awesome.
They call it the ski slope. It is a par 5, that you can dare go
for from the top of the hill. If your drive makes it down, it is
much easier. The elevation change from the top of the hill to the
green at the bottom has to be about 150 feet. There is also a decent
sized rock arroyo guarding the front of the green. There is no rolling
up, so you either go for it or layup.
The fairways were pretty pure for summer time and the greens were
smooth and quick. There were a couple holes that were cart path
only due to over watering, but nothing to make a difference.
Great course and great views….I want to play Lexington next
Thanks for the recommendation!!
