About Painted Desert Golf Club:
The Painted Desert Golf Club, noted as one of the first true desert
courses in Las Vegas, opened back in 1987. It is well matured, developed,
and always in perfect shape. For almost 20 years now, the Jay Morrish
design has been providing golfers with a challenging yet reasonable
design and is now in its best shape ever. Playing 6,840 yards from
the tips, the course has tight fairways and a desert landscaping
just outside the small area of rough. Finally there is something
good to desert landscaping, the desert is playable. This time you
get a second chance to hit it back in the fairway for recovery or
if you are lucky even on the green.
Another pride factor with Painted Desert are the greens. For being
a desert course you would expect the greens to be hard and unforgiving.
Well it is exactly opposite. The greens will hold the hardest ball
in your bag. Tee up a “Rock
Flight” and you will see it dance on the greens in amazement;
plus they roll as smooth as greens on tour. The maintenance crew
deserves an awards for its pristine conditions.
Being that Painted Desert Golf Club is built on some of the higher
elevation points in the Las Vegas Valley, the views are remarkable.
Even if you are not having the best of days on the course, the
layout and views will make your day seem to go by much smoother.
One of the courses most challenging holes and considered to be
the signature hole is the par-3 eighth, playing 193 yards from
the tips. From an elevated tee shot, you play to a sloping green
that is protected by water
front and left along with sand traps in the back. Hit and hope
on this one. Another good hole is number 13. A short par-4 only
playing roughly 330 yards from the tips, but is guarded by a lake
from tee to green along the right side. If you are feeling confident
about your game you can tee up a driver and try to crush one on
the green. With the greens being as soft as marshmallows, the driver
will actually hold. You can be putting for eagle if you play it
Assortment is the premise at Painted Desert. Four of the par-5s
play further than 500 yards, making these demanding, requiring
fine shot making. Par-3 holes ranging from 125 to 190
yards require pinpoint accuracy and meticulous shot making. You
better hit is straight, but remember if you get a good lie in the
desert you may not need to take a drop...blast it out. With all
of the water features, of course that is a different story, but
hey at least you get the distance.
Painted Desert is located roughly 20-25 minutes
from the Las Vegas strip. The course also integrated a clubhouse
that is ready for your return from the course. With a large circular
bar and raised ceilings, the clubhouse gives views of the course
with a comfortable ambiance. The unique stone walls and fireplace
adds to the sensation for golfers who have come in from the winter
Golf. The greens are cross-cut and rolled Poa annua and
come with moderate to tricky breaks and undulations; some of the
smoothest greens you will ever experience. The
course is laid with Rye or Bermuda depending on the season. With
a driving range, practice bunker and chipping green, along with
a putting green, Painted Desert is a full practice facility. Enjoy
your day at the Painted Desert Golf Club.
