Las Vegas, Nevada (April 7, 2014)–This league has been postponed. BUT, the summer is a PERFECT time to play golf at any of the golf courses at Golf Summerlin. Great rates, service and golf is available. Visit GolfSummerlin.com for more details and reservations. A new summer golf league is being introduced at Palm Valley Golf Club, one of three Las Vegas golf courses that is a part of the Golf Summerlin group. Spearheaded by longtime PGA of America professional Shane Sanchez, the leagues will combine fun and competition. Part of the fun is that golfers will get free Michelob Ultra during the league that will take place from June 13 – August 8. The eight-week league is only $160 per player or $25 weekly for drop-in play. The league will include 9 holes every week, the free beer plus weekly raffles and other surprises throughout the league. Interested golfers should call 702-363-4373 extension 1 to sign up. –By Brian Hurlburt.
Palm Valley–and the other two Las Vegas golf courses at Golf Summerlin–was designed by architect Greg Nash and World Golf Hall of Fame inductee Billy Casper. The course features water holes and fairways and tee boxes that offer some of the best views of the city available. It's a great layout for a golf league.
Sanchez has operated similar leagues in previous years and says that it becomes something that participants look forward to on a weekly basis and they all walk away from the experience very happy that they were involved. "First off, it's a great way to kick off the weekend on a Friday evening because it's a fun, social league but it's also fun because there is that competition factor," says Sanchez. "I also believe that it's a tremendous bang for the buck because of everything the golfers will receive over the eight weeks. There will be weekly raffles, appetizers and drink specials in the clubhouse following the round in addition to the two free beers on the course, and there will also be an overall grand prize."
The league format is two-player teams and the teams will be paired with other twosomes for a match play contest. Overall points will be tallied during the eight weeks to determine the overall winner. There will also be a weekly skins game.
Golf Summerlin is home to Highland Falls, Palm Valley and Eagle Crest golf courses, all of which are nestled just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip in the master-planned community of Summerlin. Hall-of-Fame inductee Billy Casper and course-planner Greg Nash designed three well-conditioned, diverse and challenging courses, including a hospitable executive course (Eagle Crest). Together, the courses offer a broad variety of golf experiences; whether players seek a full-spectrum round on a challenging par-72 layout or a quick 18 holes on a well-designed executive course.
