Wolf Creek Golf Course: Green Fee, Cart Fee, and Range Balls
There is really no salutation, when it comes to Wolf Creek other than what it has to offer. When you think of a “must play” for a golf trip to Las Vegas, Wolf Creek needs to be on your list. With dramatic elevation changes and some of the best views you will ever see on a golf course, the Wolf Creek experience is nothing less than magnificent. Ranked in 2005 by Golf Digest as 27th out of the "Top 100 Greatest Public Courses" also ranked third in Golf Digest’s “America’s Best New Courses”, “The Most Spectacular New Golf Course in America” by Affluent Golfer, and the USGA ranked Wolf Creek the 3rd most difficult course in America just to name a few; Wolf Creek is a course that you will remember for the rest of your life. Just put it this way, give the camera to the rider, he/she will have a great time being a photographer. Located only about 80 miles from the Las Vegas Strip in Mesquite, NV the trip is more than worth it.
Once you step out of your car, you will see what you are up against. The unparalleled views, the walls of mountainous terrain, the forced carries, the glistening lakes, and the plush green grass is enough substance to put you in a daze. This “one-of-a-kind” experience is something that will be in the record books for a long time. Twisting and turning throughout the desert landscaping, Wolf Creek is a course that you might want to load up on some used balls before playing. Even the most skilled of golfers seem to have trouble with the unique and complicated layout. The course features many forced carries to split fairways, offering golfers different options from the tee boxes. Speaking of the tee boxes, if you have altitude sickness you might want to bring some Dramamine. Standing on a small patch of grass, sometimes 11 stories above the fairway, staring off into the wilderness of it is surroundings; it is easy to forget that you have to hit a drive with a 200 yard carry over a lake to a tight fairway. Once you come back to your senses, the drive must be perfectly placed or you will be looking at a bogie or worse. Look at our pictures of the course; you will see what we mean. There are 5 different tee boxes for all skill levels ranging in length from 4,169 to 7,018 yards, but Wolf Creek is a challenge to say the least. Even the best players will have to bring their “A” game the entire day to post a score worth putting in the GHIN system.
Wolf Creek is located roughly 1 hour from the Las Vegas strip, but once again you will not be disappointed; the drive goes quick and it is more than worth it. With all of its rankings, that many people can not be wrong. With a complete practice facility including a driving range and short game area with a putting green, chipping green, and sand traps to get warmed up before one of your most impressive days on the links. Wolf Creek has thought of everything. Along with a full service bar and restaurant, there is also a halfway house located conveniently between the 5th and 14th holes. With immaculate Bentgrass greens and Rye grass fairways (topped with Bermuda during over-seed), you will feel like you are on tour. With multi-tier greens, you can expect tricky to severe breaks.
