In The Lair Of The Dragon
Immersed in traditional Scottish heritage with rugged highlands and deep rolls this is a green you definitely must try out. At the start of your game you will quickly realize that due to the rough topography from the natural hills and valley you will find yourself a great challenge. This premier championship golf course has also hosted PGA events including the Wendy’s Three-tour Challenge, Tiger Jam III and IV, as well as charity event for the Tiger Woods Foundation.
The DragonRidge Country Club also offers a great complimentary practice area for all pre-arranged tee times. The practice also includes two bent grass practice greens, a greenside and fairway bunker. The clubhouse is suitable for fine as well as casual dining. There is a special section for members in the bar & grill with plasma TVs. Their banquet facility, the Grand Highlands Ballroom can accommodate up to 500 people and is regularly booked for weddings, banquets and other special events. One of the reasons the Grand Highlands Ballroom is so popular is because it offers a spectacular view of the entire Las Vegas valley. Some other amenities include locker rooms, full service fitness center, swimming pool, and tennis courts.
Taming The Dragon Ridge
At the beginning of the course you will be introduced to water elements early on. However, you will find your greatest challenges on the back nine. This is where the terrain becomes even more rugged. A tip from Dream Car Rentals for a spectacular view, on the 12th you will get to see all of the Vegas Valley (including the rock formation resembling a scaly back of a dragon, hence the clubs name) while walking towards the course’s toughest par-5 with a wash and bunkers surrounding the green that eat up the drives.
The lowest handicapped hole is the par 4 7th. It can be an intimidating tee shot with an elaborate creek which lines the fairway reaching the hole and behind the green. You’ll also find black lava rocks along the nine which as well as giving the player a dramatic visual also eats up sprayed shots.
On your next visit to Las Vegas with Dream Car Rentals why don’t you try out this exclusive country club? It’s a guarantee that this will be one of the best times of your Las Vegas vacation.
