July 3, 2009–We refer to those Las Vegas golf courses that are within about an hour drive from the Las Vegas Strip as being in the Las Vegas Golf Region. One of those 'Las Vegas' golf courses is Wolf Creek Golf Club, an award-winning course that is located in the mini-golf mecca of Mesquite, Nevada, a burg located about 77 miles from our bright lights. Wolf Creek is continually recognized for excellence and recently ComCast SportsNet Editor Joe Yasharoff took some time to reveal his love for the course. It's good timing for the recognition because there are some Las Vegas golf deals available at Wolf Creek during the summer.
"It was my second time playing there … and I'm still in awe of its splendor," wrote Yasharoff. "And it didn't get less awe-inspiring the second time around." Yasharoff is the Managing Editor at Comcast SportsNet and the Creator/Executive Producer of "Tee Time", a weekly, summer golf show. Wolf Creek is one of six Mesquite, Nevada, golf courses, and one of more than 50 golf courses located in the Las Vegas golf region. One of the Las Vegas golf deals currently available at Wolf Creek currently is a $99 package that includes a round at both Wolf Creek Golf Club and Falcon Ridge. Another $55 gets you a room at the Eureka Resort in Mesquite. Click to GolfWolfCreek.com now for details or call 866-252-4653.
"You don't get tired of looking at Grace Kelly, right?" continued Yasharoff. "I have been to Pebble Beach, Augusta National and some of the great courses in Scotland and Hawaii but this one is as visually spectacular as any of them." High praise, for sure.Recently the ZAGAT survey also recognized Wolf Creek with very high rankings in several categories including a 28 out of 30 score for the golf course design.
Wolf Creek is consistently ranked as one of America’s Top 100 Best Public Courses in major and regional publications. In 2007 – 2008, Golf Digest presented Wolf Creek with its prestigious Architecture Award in recognition of outstanding design. And the editors of Golf Digest and the National Panel of Course Raters named Wolf Creek as course No. 25 among “America’s 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses 2007 – 2008; Wolf Creek was also ranked No.29 out of 100 among GolfWeek’s Best Resort Courses in 2009. And Wolf Creek was recently ranked 14th in a Top 50 Golfweek readers poll.
