Golfers smack drives and finesse putts amid surrounding bluffs and the Las Vegas cityscape on Eagle Crest’s 4,067-yard, par 60 golf course. The 18-hole executive course carves its home into the side of a striking mountain, with sharp elevation changes from the front to back nine that lend a distinct advantage to players with mountain-goat caddies. Clubbers of all skill levels face challenging shots on Eagle Crest’s 12 par 3 and six par 4 holes, including a 347-yard fifth hole whose fairway narrows between a water hazard and bunker that presents a treacherous lie. Rounds end on the par 4 18th green that drops 40 feet from its fairway companion, gleefully rolling balls front to back into a sand trap known for hiding vagabond sunbathers.
Eagle Crest Golf Club
Designed by World Golf Hall of Famer Billy Casper and course-planning guru Greg Nash, Eagle Crest Golf Club's 18-hole, 4,067-yard executive course offers scenic city views from some of Las Vegas's highest points. The par 60 layout fluctuates in elevation as it cozies up to an amber mountainside, demanding confident club selection and a passing capacity for Bavarian yodeling. Throughout the round, 12 par 3s reward pin-high iron shots, while 4 par 4s allow players to unleash aggression with flush drives. Rounds conclude at the straightaway, 370-yard, par 4 18th hole, where the fairway plummets 40 feet into a large, bunker-fortified green that lets you punch it if it flinches in anticipation of a craterous ball mark.
