Boulder City Golf

Located a mere 20 miles from the bright lights and excitement of Las Vegas is Boulder City, where life slows down to a more leisurely pace and where the beauty of the Nevada desert is at its finest.

Close enough to the Las Vegas Strip to provid the thrills and just far enough away to celebrate the quiet, serene nature of Nevada, Boulder City is perhaps the area’s best-kept secret. The same could be said of the pair of acclaimed golf courses that reside in Boulder City, courses that offer the finest of desert golf without the high price tags and long waiting lines.

The publicly owned Boulder City Golf Course and Boulder Creek Golf Club combine to offer one of the Las Vegas-area’s best one-two punch. Both layouts feature challenging designs, immaculate conditioning and customer service that’s more than worth the 20 minute drive from the famed Las Vegas Strip.

Though just over a year old, Boulder Creek Golf Club has proved the perfect complement to the more senior Boulder City Golf Course. A 27-hole facility, Boulder Creek features numerous water hazards, white sandy bunkers and beautiful palm trees that bring out the best in desert golf beauty. A true test for all golfers, Boulder Creek can stretch to a daunting 7,600 yards, but with six sets of tees, can be shortened to fit any skill level.

For golfers seeking to improve their game, Boulder Creek features a lighted nine-hole par-3 course and a state-of-the-art practice facility. For before and after the round, Boulder Creek is home to the Creekside Grill, which overlooks the course and offers breakfast, lunch and fine dining every day.

Since its opening in 1973, Boulder City Golf Course has earned a reputation as one of the best golf values in the Las Vegas area. Designed by Billy Casper and David Rainville, the par-72 Boulder City Golf Course features generous tees and fairways that rival any course in the area.

While it stretches to only 6,591 yards, Boulder City offers seven par-4s of nearly 400 yards, a 569-yard par-5 and plenty of water hazards and tree-lined fairways to capture directionally challenged shots. In fact, water comes into play on seven holes, including the memorable 276-yard dogleg par-4, which requires a deftly placed tee shot to avoid water right and a short approach to a two-tiered green that features water right and in back.

Like Boulder Creek, Boulder City features an impressive practice area, including a driving range with both green grass and mats and a chipping area with bunkers. The Boulder City clubhouse offers both a snack bar and a small pro shop.

Forty-five holes of challenging golf at a great value, set in a quiet, beautiful desert scenery featuring unrivaled customer service – need any more reasons to take a short drive for a long, relaxing day in Bolder City?
