From the 1st Tee to a Decade of Great Golf - Golf Mesquite Nevada Celebrates its 10 Year Anniversary
Golf Mesquite Nevada celebrates its 10 Year Anniversary in 2011.
Mesquite, NV (PRWEB) December 8, 2010
The golf course that lit the fuse of the golf destination explosion in Mesquite, Nevada was the Palms course. The William Hull designed course opened for play in 1989 and with it came rave reviews, golfers from across the nation and now, a 10 year anniversary.
Golf and specifically, golf at the Palms, was the perfect remedy for the burgeoning hotel casino industry looking for a way to attract more travelers to Mesquite, NV as a tourist destination.
Golfers of all abilities found the Palms not only as a challenge to their game but also a resort amenity that became the perfect companion to the sparkling pools, exciting casino action and delicious dining options provided by the hotels.
The championship Palms course has wide, vibrant fairways on the front nine highlighted with water features and sand bunkers. It’s the lush conditioning and 200 palm trees that give the 6,800 yard, par 71 course its resort feel. The mountainous back nine has dramatic elevation changes and requires a little more emphasis on shot placement to score well. The now famous 15th hole has a breathtaking view from the elevated tee boxes and a vertical drop of 114 feet from tee to fairway.
Coming out of the current over-seed season, the Palms golf course is in the superior condition found at any of the world’s high end golf resorts. Perfectly manicured tee boxes and fast smooth greens are a treat to play. The popularity of the Palms has been enhanced by the “local play” green fees.
From its humble beginnings as a sleepy little town with just one golf course, Mesquite has now reached the status as one of the fastest growing golf vacation destinations in the United States. Seven championship courses now stretch the city’s borders from tee box to tee box.
Mesquite’s location makes it ideal for golf vacationers. Just 37 miles south of St. George, Utah, and 80 miles north of Las Vegas.
