Designed by World Golf Hall of Famer Billy Casper and course architect Greg Nash, Palm Valley spans 6,849 yards of undulating fairways set against a dramatic backdrop of striking mountainscapes. Relatively generous fairways entice aggressive tee shots throughout rounds, but particularly ill-struck drives are likely to find the shadows of encroaching pine trees or the grizzly sands of 68 bunkers peppered throughout the course. Nine ponds loom ominously throughout the course, occasionally forcing golfers into tricky course-management decisions and granting golf balls a chance to pursue their lifelong dream of becoming dinner for fat fish. The course’s emerald corridors play their way into expansive greens, where bentgrass surfaces, subtle breaks, and shape-shifting holes can complicate even the simplest putts. Together, these attributes are what make the course a popular destination for players of all skill levels, and what prompted the Southern Nevada Golf Association to select it as its home course.

The Revere Golf Club celebrates the legacy of the Revolutionary War hero with two 18-hole championship golf courses that extend for more than 7,000 yards apiece through the desert canyons of the Las Vegas valley. Players drink in the scenery as they take on the Lexington course, opened in 1999 on the same date Paul Revere made his famous ride, or the Concord course, opened in 2002 on the same date Paul Revere discovered text messaging. Each layout was carved into the rugged terrain by Casper Nash & Associates, the prolific design team of Greg Nash and 51-time PGA tour winner Billy Casper.

Once visitors have holed out on either 18th green, they can take to the 23,000-square-foot clubhouse. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows span the entire north side of the facility, allowing for magnificent views of the course and the Las Vegas strip from Buckman’s Grille. Diners enjoy breakfast and lunch options amid Revolution-era ambiance, complete with lanterns that shine overhead and signal whether to order surf or turf.

Lexington Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Total length of 7,069 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 73.3 from the back tees * Course slope of 151 from the back tees * Four sets of tees per hole

Designed by Dick Wilson and Joe Lee—the duo responsible for famed courses including Doral Blue Monster and Cog Hill’s Dubsdread—Desert Rose Golf Course spans 6,511 yards of tight fairways and player-friendly terrain. Runaway swings gain traction before the round at Desert Rose’s driving range, where players can warm up by hitting a bucket of practice balls or save them for later use in a seasonal cobbler. Nimble carts traverse the course’s emerald corridors, allowing clubbers to save their stamina for treacherous approaches and breaking putts. After the round, players can replenish energy with a tasty handful of sand out of the practice bunker or a nosh from the Desert Rose Grill or quench their appetite for sounder swings by heading to the onsite practice facilities or signing up for a private lesson.

  • 18-hole, par 71 course designed by Dick Wilson and Joe Lee 

  • Length of 6,511 from the farthest tees 

  • Course rating of 69.6 from the farthest tees

When newly minted golf director Orrin Vincent assembled a team of sharp course management minds in 1972, he couldn’t have expected the reach he and his brain trust would one day possess. The enterprise formed that day at a course on the banks of Lake Tahoe now spans the nation, encompassing 41 courses scattered across 15 states, from Florida to Washington. In keeping with the standard set forth 40 years ago, the organization is made up of experts with experience across all aspects of golf course management—from construction and maintenance to design and soundproofing tee boxes. Their signature flare for perfectionism amid naturally dramatic settings can be witnessed at each course in the OB Sports directory, including the Robert Trent Jones Jr.-designed Monarch Beach Golf Links in California, the 36-hole Gamble Ranch in Washington, and the Arnold Palmer-designed Angel Park Golf Club in Las Vegas.

At Rhoderunner Golf Center, director of Instruction Gaylord Rhodes and PGA Tour instructor Jimmie Bullard teach by giving constructive feedback as their pupils hit the ball, helping them understand why a shot strayed right or hooked left. By so doing, they give their charges the ability to diagnose their own swing flaws?and keep their natural motion intact as they make improvements to their swing mechanics.

Rhoderunner's indoor studio boasts two aboutGolf simulators that serve as both the digital training venue and assistant coach, with drills and practice modules that help golfers zero in on practicing specific shots. They also offer club-fitting technology that pair players with the right set of sticks. The simulators also furnish full rounds at replicas of world-famous golf courses, such as the Old Course at St. Andrews, letting golfers play a world-class course without having to bow to Jack Nicklaus's spikes.
