February 15, 2010 (Las Vegas, Nevada)—It’s a simple request: Golfers who are looking for tee times at Las Vegas area golf courses want a great golf experience at a memorable golf course. Is that too much to ask? Not at Wolf Creek Vacations in Mesquite, Nevada, 77 miles outside of Las Vegas, where golf course challenge and variety are the name of the game. —By Bill Bowman
Just three easy steps will have you standing on the first tee. 1. Contact Wolf Creek Vacations; 2. Choose your desired golf courses and stay-and-play dates; 3. Grab your clubs and head to Mesquite. It’s that simple. With Mesquite golf courses such as Wolf Creek, Falcon Ridge, Oasis Golf Club and Sand Hollow (45 minutes up the road in Hurricane, Utah), players have the chance to tee it up on some of the finest courses in the Southwest. By contacting Wolf Creek Vacations, golfers take the hassle out of planning that next golf vacation. Wolf Creek Vacations can take care of the tee times, whether it’s for one day at one course or for a week-long stay playing multiple courses, as well as hotel reservations. All that’s left is for players to enjoy the experience.
“Our inception was in 2004,” says Wolf Creek General Manager Joel Villanos about Wolf Creek Vacations. “Since that time we’ve built up a loyal customer base and we have a lot of repeat customers.” And Villanos says there are two reasons for those customers to come back: Top-notch golf courses and customer service. “Because Wolf Creek is a highly-ranked layout, it gives the course must-play appeal,” Villanos says. “And when we appeared in Tiger Woods’ EA Sports game, we had a lot of people come up to us and say they have played the EA Sports game so many times that they felt they needed to play the real thing.”
“If you travel to some resorts, you’ll lose a day of travel,” says Villanos. “Here, you can fly into McCarran (in Las Vegas) at 8 a.m. and find yourself on the first tee in Mesquite by noon.” And with courses such as Wolf Creek, that’s the easy part. Wolf Creek, named by Golf Digest as “America’s Best New Course” in 2002, is a 7,018-yard, par-72 masterpiece that winds through the desert terrain in Mesquite. And to make your experience that much better, Villanos and the staff at Wolf Creek want players to check out the course a second time. Through April, if players book a second round at Wolf Creek and play during their stay, they will get $40 off that second green fee.
