South Shore Country Club Golf Course Guide PRIVATE
SouthShore Golf Club
SouthShore Country Club is the first private Jack Nicklaus Signature Course in Nevada, an inspiration that reaches the tops of ridges before falling away down rugged canyons to the sparkling lake below. Rising from the shoreline of Nevada’s largest privately-owned lake to the desert hills, the 6,903 yard championship course draws upon the area’s unique topography to provide a one-of-a-kind golfing experience.
For his first Nevada signature golf course, Nicklaus carved out a dramatic layout, creating a course with elevations ranging from 1,410 to 1,750 feet. For golfers of varying degrees of expertise, the par-71 masterpiece has generous fairways, up to five tee boxes per hole, as well as strategic bunkering and forced carries over canyons and water. With its dramatic elevation changes, superb conditioning and nuanced greens, this Jack Nicklaus Signature Course ignites a golfer’s passion and provides a peaceful escape.
Framed by the desert, hills and generous trees, SouthShore challenges you to shape shots and choose options, an attribute showcased during the former Wendy’s 3-Tour Challenge in which players from LPGA, PGA and Champions Tour competed together.
High points towering upwards of 350 feet provide jaw-dropping views of the rugged terrain framing the course and neighboring Lake Las Vegas. While the packed galleries have become a relished memory, the bighorn sheep have become frequent spectators on the course’s spectacular finishing holes.
