November 8, 2008–There lies Painted Desert Golf Club, one of two Las Vegas golf courses managed by the award-winning EAGL Golf (the other is the historic Las Vegas Golf Club). Las Vegas golf course Painted Desert was the first, true desert golf course built in the Las Vegas area, and stands the test of time due to its beauty and playability. And under the direction of EAGL Golf, this Las Vegas golf course offers a true Las Vegas golf value that is worth your time.
EAGL Golf is headed by golf industry veteran Joe Munsch, who has worked in the industry for 33 years, and operates more than 80 golf courses in 14 different states including the two previously mentioned Las Vegas golf courses. Painted Desert Golf Club, a Jay Moorish design, is now under the watchful eye of Las Vegas golf industry veteran Adam Owen, who is bringing the EAGL Golf philosophy to this Las Vegas golf course. "The Painted Desert playing experience is about great playing conditions, friendly staff, maintaining a very nice pace of play, and providing a great value for the price," says Owen. "Everyone here at Painted Desert Golf Club welcomes all golfers and is committed to their golf enjoyment."
As is the case with many Las Vegas golf courses, you can secure the best Las Vegas golf rates, tee times, deals and up-to-date information by visiting the official website of Painted Desert Golf Club.
Painted Desert Golf Club opened in 1987 and has hosted some big Las Vegas golf events including the Nevada Open and other Las Vegas amateur tournaments. Moorish knew that even though he was creating a desert golf experience, he still wanted the golf course to be player friendly while bringing to life the challenge that comes with playing golf in the desert. "I like players to have to think when they play a golf course," Morrish has said about Painted Desert, one of the many great golf courses that he has created. "I don't want people to just go out and hit it a mile and then hit it again, without thinking. But we also knew that Painted Desert Golf Club was going to be a daily fee so we made sure it was user friendly.” Click to view information and photos from the signature holes of Painted Desert Golf Club.
Current PGA Tour star Robert Gamez–who grew up in Las Vegas–holds the course record of 62. Gamez is a three-time winner on the PGA Tour and grew up playing on the best Las Vegas golf courses as a youngster, and was just heading off to college by the time Painted Desert Golf Club made its debut. Gamez is a former Player of the Year in the Southern Nevada Golf Association.
