Welcome to the New Chimera Golf Club at Tuscany, where quality, character, good taste, and all ways to identify a truly great wine; why not have the same experience with a golf course. Formerly named the Tuscany Golf Club, Chimera Golf Club at Tuscany is one the newer courses to arrive on the Las Vegas golf scene. Opened in 2003 and designed by Ted Robinson, this lush Par-72 has all the makings of a premier course and will most likely become a favorite for those would want a great day of golf. It wins awards annually for service, course conditions and overall playability, not to mention the views of the mountains and Las Vegas strip are outstanding.
Now with Chimera taking over the property, they are looking to elevate this facility to a whole new level; as they put it, they are "rolling out the red carpet" with even better customer service, course conditions, and eye pleasing aesthetics. Here are some of the items being added/changed to the facility: complete overhaul of signage, including new flags, tee markers, hole signs, scorecards, and so on; a brand new fleet of Toro equipment ensuing near perfect course conditions; two 18ftx40ft fountains installed in the lakes on holes #9 & #18; reopened their outside bar and grill overlooking The Strip, Old Vegas, and Mt. Charleston; installed Digital Caddies GPS tablets on their entire fleet; drone flyovers with available pictures of your foursome for purchase; added top shelf liquors & craft beers on tap; brand new espresso equipment and a full time Barista crafting espresso and special requested coffee drinks; all new golf shop equipment & apparel; and all new range balls and range equipment.
Why Chimera you ask: Chimera, pronounced ki-meer-uh was a mythological, fire breathing monster, represented with the body and head of a female lion, a goat's head arising from its back, and a serpent for a tail. Born of monster gods, the dreaded Chimera caused great havoc and terrorized the lands until it was defeated by the unconquerable hero Bellerophon with the help of his trusty winged horse, Pegasus. Chimera is a synonym to infinite imagination, passion, and creativity, while it also symbolizes one's pursuit of what seems unattainable or elusive ("to chase Chimeras"). The illusion and the mirage of this special oasis created to fight the desert’s heat and sun, lead the to name this special place Chimera. Their hope is that the new brand will be iconic in Las Vegas for many years to come and that it will have the same meaning for everyone that has the opportunity to play this course. “Ki-meer-uh”
Begin your day warming up on the driving range with unobstructed views of the Strip, Downtown Vegas, and snow-capped Mt. Charleston before hitting the course. The 6,906 yard layout is playable for all levels, however better players will notice strategically placed bunkering that comes into play from the back tees on most holes. Featuring 68 white-sand bunkers, one must be fairly accurate from the tee box and on approach shots to avoid spending the day in “the beach.” Using the natural desert terrain, Chimera gives the golfer a nice sensation of desert golf inside of a growing housing development. Also, there are water features on holes #9 and #18 that will highlight your round and create enough challenge for even the best player to conquer. #18 is a really strong finishing hole with a green that almost feels like you’re on an island, which can be an intimidating final shot for anyone.
The Vegas winds can dramatically change the golf course from day to day making Chimera Golf Club a unique experience every time you play. Depending on the day's winds, there are potentially reachable par 5's, and two driveable par 4's, which add a risk reward element few courses can match. The picturesque par 3's, firm & fast greens, extensive bunkering, elaborate water features, and pure fairways make Chimera Golf Club the "hidden oasis" in Las Vegas.
Chimera Golf Club at Tuscany will fit the bill for a nice, casual round of golf in a setting that is pristine. Uniquely displayed rammed earth walls and signature Chimera references are prominent throughout the project, along with tee boxes - aptly named Pegasus, Serpent, Goat and Lion. Groups of all sizes can be accommodated for outings, whether it's for golf, for business or for that special occasion. Traditional in design with generous fairways, large undulating greens and sparkling white bunkers, Chimera Golf Club at Tuscany is the new place to play in the Las Vegas Valley.
Chimera is now also one of the few courses in Las Vegas to offer GolfBoarding. It is a new and exciting way to ride or board around the course. Instead of being lazy and sitting in a cart for your entire round, strap your bag on a GolfBoard and ride the rolling fairways like a wave in San Diego. For a $25 upgrade it is well worth the experience at least once in your life.
Chimera Golf Club is located 25-30 minutes from the Las Vegas strip. The course consists of Rye grass most of the year, and Bermuda the fairways, for the hotter climate summer months. The greens are Bermuda grass, overseeded for the winter months. The greens have moderate to tricky breaks, due to the undulations and unique layout.
Clothing that is not appropriate includes: denim shorts, denim jeans, t-shirts, swimming attire, gym shorts, halter-tops, tank tops, cut-offs and other dress that is deemed inappropriate. The Club reserves the right to refuse service to anyone who is dressed inappropriately. Non-metal spikes must be worn while on the course.
