Veteran instructor Tony Lawson—a Class-A PGA member—helms Wildhorse Golf Academy. The score-shaving instructor conducts lessons at the club’s practice facility, where he scrutinizes short-game form at putting and chipping areas or fine-tunes full swings on the natural-turf driving range. Each lesson enlists V1 video analysis to reveal hard-to-detect swing flaws.
Wildhorse Golf Club
Framed by the amber peaks of distant mountains, Wildhorse Golf Club's 18-hole course winds through rugged desert wilderness for 6,525 yards of challenging tee-to-green terrain. Eight ponds loom at the edges of seven holes, including the majestic ninth, where water hazards occupy both sides of the fairway as it draws nearer to the green, luring wayward approaches and contributing to the hole's rating as the course's most difficult. Sands, rocks, and tumbleweeds with dreams of becoming golf balls await misguided orbs in the unsown desert that flanks each pristine fairway, offsetting the course's lack of imposing tree lines.
Imbued with more history than Gene Sarazen's divot-tool time portal, the course counts Howard Hughes among its past owners and was once a regular stop on the PGA Tour, where players enjoyed its beautiful scenery and the compassionate waterfowl that helped earn the course honors as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary.
