Like painting a portrait or fixing a computer, completing a round of golf is always more impressive when it’s done in the pouring rain. Enjoy equally impressive fair-weathered fores with today's Groupon: for $39, you get 18 holes of golf with cart rental (up to an $85 value) and a large bucket of range balls (an $8 value) at Black Mountain Golf & Country Club in Henderson (up to a $93 total value).
Overlooking the majestic range that bears its name, Black Mountain Golf & Country Club unfurls three distinctive nine-hole courses that challenge and captivate players of every skill level. The Founders course opens with a tricky trifecta of holes known as Amen Corner, which includes the wind-harried, 430-yard par 4 second hole and the winding, bunker-scorched par 3 third. Hit the Desert nine to face a gauntlet of sinister sand traps, deceptively daunting water hazards, and mirage clown mouths. The Horizon fairways keep golfers on their cleat tips with a blend of imposing boundaries, staunchly defended greens, and enticing birdie possibilities. A motorized golf cart lets players glide between holes, absorbing the scenic surrounding vistas while forgoing the strain of lugging a bag full of woods, irons, and bacon.
Armed with a large range bucket brimming with 75 dimpled orbs, golfers can warm up proper techniques for driving, chipping, and frustrated bush-swatting at Black Mountain’s practice range. This range boasts a 5,000-square-foot chipping green and spacious putting green, both of which are ideal for camouflaging spare piles of cash.
Black Mountain Golf & Country Club's rates fluctuate throughout the week.
Black Mountain Golf & Country Club
A lush oasis in the Mojave Desert, Black Mountain Golf & Country Club has challenged golfers for more than half a century. Today, players send balls hurtling against the backdrop of the Black Mountains, taking care to avoid hitting the water or slicing their ball into the Las Vegas strip 25 miles away. Since each course features its own unique style, players must adjust their games accordingly. Whereas one course tempts sharpshooters with several birdie opportunities, the other features the most water, requiring golfers to select their clubs carefully and shake off the mirages of caddies appearing as khaki-wearing cacti.
