The Revere Golf Club at Anthem

Named to honor the patriots of the American Revolution, The Revere Golf Club was created in celebration of the legacy of Paul Revere. The Revere Golf Club carries their gallant and noble spirit to both of their Lexington and Concord golf courses. Loc ted just minutes south of the famed Las Vegas Strip in Henderson, Nevada, The Revere’s 36 -hole facility is home to the renowned “Troon Golf Experience,” where these modern-day battlefields are the focal point of the Sun City community of Anthem.


Reflecting the patriotic theme of The Revere Golf Club the golf courses pay tribute to the heralded midnight ride of Paul Revere. As we all know he gallantly maneuvered the route on horseback from Lexington to Concord warning citizens that the British were on their way. Today, upon arrival at The Revere, you will find that the theme of the facility creates a one-of-a-kind golf experience that will both educate and inspire. Guests of The Revere Golf Club enjoy a spirited but less perilous adventure by golf cart, but the route through these masterful 36-holes is no less daunting for the serious player.


Essentially a matched pair, the Lexington and Concord courses are the work of architect Greg Nash and the legendary PGA Tour veteran, Billy Casper. In creating the Revere, Casper and Nash routed the tees, fairways, and greens through the meandering floor of the natural desert canyon. Their bold designs incorporate secluded fairways, dramatic shifts in elevation, rugged outcroppings, dynamic waterfalls, and picturesque lakes that combine to create perhaps the most scenic and challenging golf courses in Southern Nevada. The natural beauty and solitude of the canyon was preserved by locating the majority of the homes in the community along the ridgeline above the course. In many instances, the golf course is separated from the residences by as much as 300 feet of sloping desert terrain, creating spectacular unobstructed views.

“The Revere is a very challenging golf course when you play it from the back tees. There’s no doubt about that,” said Nash. “The holes are designed to make better players work for good scores without over-penalizing the average player who just wants to have fun.”


In fact, just as patriots prepared beforehand to wage war for independence, The Revere’s daily-fee “revolutionaries” also must sharpen their aim, hone those shot-making skills, and ready their gear before stepping foot on the course. Aptly named “The Battlefield, “ the immense and stunning practice facility, complete with a full short-game area with green and practice bunkers and plays true to the patriotic theme.


Since opening in 1999, the Lexington has garnered high marks and prestigious recognition from national golf publications. One of the most memorable holes on the 7,143-yard Lexington course has to be the seventh, “Kings Chapel,” a relatively short par-5 of 489 yards, where a towering waterfall cascades over the cliffs into a pool behind an elevated green. On the back nine, the 14th hole, “19 North Square,” is representative of the challenge the Lexington can deliver. At 442 yards, the par-4 features a dogleg right fairway with a tight landing area at the corner heavily guarded by a bunker on the left and the desert on the right. The approach must find the correct level on the large two-tier green.


Complementing the Lexington, the Concord opened in June 2002 with accents and challenges all its own. The 7,055-yard track winds through dramatic elevation changes in the rugged desert foothills, where more than 1,700 trees line the generous fairways and large undulating greens. The dramatic finishing hole on the Concord is by far the most visually stimulating hole on the course. Playing 555 yards from the back tees with a vertical drop of 100 feet, “Independence,” as it is so aptly named is not realized until the final putt falls. A “Billy Casper-type” drive is required off the tee to set up an approach that best deals with the 25-foot deep gorge guarding the entry onto the green. A “Minuteman” with more firepower might try to reach the green with two dead-on pokes -but missing most likely means digging out from any of 10 bunkers that surround the putting surface.

Each hole on the Lexington and Concord plays like a separate chapter in the Revolutionary experience with names that recall key moments in our history – “Midnight Ride,” “Old Ironsides,” “One If By Land, Two if By Sea,” and “Bunker Hill,” are only a few.

A bell cast by Revere in 1816 still rings in Boston’s King’s Chapel. In addition, Revere himself has described it as “the sweetest bell ever made”. Likewise, this is one of the sweetest golf holes ever conceived after experiencing it. The tee boxes are perched on a sheer canyon wall 60 feet above the fairway, giving plenty of carry for a driver. From there the second shot is uphill to a stunning green complex framed by a huge multi-tiered waterfall and lake. It has the effect of an outdoor amphitheater, which surrounds the player with the sound of running water. The green itself has two shelves, one four feet above the other, and is protected in the front by several large bunkers. Finally, before walking off the green, take a moment to glance backwards down the fairway. The view of the Vegas Valley below will take your breath away.


On the back nine, the 14th hole, “19 North Square”, is representative of the challenge the Lexington can deliver. At 442 yards, the par-4 features a dogleg right with a tight landing area at the corner heavily guarded by a bunker on the left and the desert on the right. The hole plays towards Black Mountain with a very wide landing area off the tee. Aim your shot towards the middle-left of the fairway to avoid an undriveable desert area on the right. From there, a good long-iron shot is necessary to carry the desert wash that fronts the hole’s accommodating green. The approach must find the correct level on the large two-tier green.
