February 19, 2010 (Las Vegas, Nevada)–Angel Park Golf Club is the home of two 18-hole Arnold Palmer Las Vegas golf courses, a lighted par 3, an all-grass putting course, and expansive practice facilties. For seemingly too many years to count, this facility and its Las Vegas golf courses have earned status as the "Best Golf Course in Las Vegas" in a local newspaper poll. Now, Golf Digest has named Angel Park to a list of the Top 50 most friendly women golf courses in America.
"We take our loyalty to female guests very seriously," says David Stead, Director of Golf at Angel Park Golf Club. "Although the game of golf sort of started out as a male-centric game, I gotta tell you that the ladies who tee it up at our club are just as captivated with this wonderful game as the men. Their participation is good for everyone." Angel Park Golf Club is also home to a restaurant and patio with terrific views, plus a full-service pro shop. And Las Vegas golfers can reserve Las Vegas golf tee times for the best rate guaranteed at the official Angel Park Golf Club website. Angel Park was 50th on the list.
The Golf Digest editors worked with more than 100 female golf course raters to create the list and determine facilities that had a "female-friendly design, amenities, courteous staff, programs and an atmosphere that appeals to women." Also, the editors were quoted as using some of the following criteria: "How well they met the women-friendly criteria established by the editors. Among them: at least one set of tees less than 5,300 yards, at least two sets of tees with USGA Slope and Course Ratings for women, minimal forced carries from the forward tees, and run-up areas to most or all greens."
