March 18, 2008–Desert Pines Golf Club is one of three Las Vegas golf courses operated by Walters Golf, and is dubbed "Pinehurst of Las Vegas" for its unique and tranquil setting amidst hundreds of pine trees and beautiful water features. The par 71, 6,810 yard layout is a Dye Designs International course that is located just minutes from the famed Las Vegas Strip. Future Hall-of-fame pitcher–and Las Vegas resident–Greg Maddux wrote the following in VegasGolfer Magazine about Desert Pines Golf Club: “It’s a lot of fun. In fact, it might be the ultimate risk/reward course around”. Through April 30 you can book tee times starting at $89 at Desert Pines Golf Club.
Maddux is right because the greens–brand new and in terrific shape with the latest in turf technology–are a challenge and ball position is key, as is shot placement off the tee due to narrow fairways and the hovering trees.
Other Walters Golf Las Vegas golf courses are Bali Hai Golf Club where tropical golf comes to life smack dab on the Las Vegas Strip; and Royal Links Golf Club, 18 intriguing holes that honor the British Open.
