November 23, 2009–Desert Pines Golf Club, one of three themed Las Vegas golf courses operated by Walters Golf, is referred to as Carolina Golf in the Desert because of the hundreds of mature pine trees, beautiful lakes and ponds, and the challenging Dye Designs International bunkering.

The new photo gallery is hot off the presses, and each photo shows the beauty of this sometimes underrated Las Vegas golf experience that is located just minutes from downtown Las Vegas and a few minutes more to the Las Vegas Strip, the heart of Las Vegas. Desert Pines Golf Club was named as one of the Top 50 Favorite Golf Courses in a poll of Golfworld Magazine readers in 2009. The course is a fun journey with holes played back-to-back in, over and around the trees, water, and bunkers.
The sister Las Vegas golf courses to Desert Pines Golf Club are Bali Hai Golf Club and Royal Links Golf Club, and you can earn deep Las Vegas golf discounts when packaging two or three of the Las Vegas golf courses together during your Las Vegas golf vacation. Bali Hai Golf Club is a tropical golf experience located right on the Las Vegas Strip underneath the shadows of the Mandalay Bay Resort, while Royal Links Golf Club is a Las Vegas golf course created to honor the holes, courses and tradition of what is now called the Open Championship (formerly the British Open).
Some Las Vegas golfers describe Desert Pines as a tight golf experience because of the challenge of the sometimes tough-to-find fairways, but according to Desert Pines Golf Club general manager Jim Anderson, the shot values on some of the holes add to the intrigue of the Desert Pines Las Vegas golf experience. "I like to use the quote, 'Mind over muscle' for our course because it's not neccesary to pull driver from the bag on every hole, and you could call the course a finesse course," says Anderson. "And right now we are in superb condition and I have never seen it look better. In 2007, we renovated all 18 greens with a Tour quality bent grass, and ever since we have enjoyed wonderful conditions."
As with all of the Walters Golf Las Vegas golf courses, special care has been taken by the owners, specifically Susan Walters, to create memorable and beautiful clubhouse settings. When you enter Desert Pines Golf Club, you will immediately see high-quality framed photos of legends of the game from the 30’s and 40’. Walter Hagen and Francis Quimet (1934) are joined there by Champion Claude Harmon at the 1948 Masters on Augusta National’s #13, pant legs rolled up and hitting out of wet marsh area. Plus a photo of Bobby Jones smoking a cigar and dapper Gene Sarazan sitting on the grass as a spectator. So photos welcome you to Desert Pines, and the new photo gallery shows you what to expect.
