Although Las Vegas is known for its dashing nightlife, partying, and gambling, the place also holds some of the world’s best golf courses that would surely entice all sorts of golfers. Billed as “the world’s most complete golf experience”, the Angel Park Golf Club serves as the replica for some of the finest par-3 courses around the world. The golf club features two 18-hole courses complete with all the challenges that will test even the skilled golfer.
The Mountain and Palm Course are the club’s challenging layouts that were designed by the famous Arnold Palmer. The Palm Course was the first to open in 1989 as a par-70 layout then the Mountain Course followed a year after. Although there are already plenty of thriving golf courses near Angel Park, the golf club still continue to draw in crowd whether to play to golf or just get around. The Palm Course was later remodeled by John Fought and Bob Cupp. The layout now features the challenging par-5, 525-yard number 6 hole with a split fairway and double dogleg. The Palm is also being highlighted by its 5 par-3s that range from 175 to 220 yards of play. Golfers will experience difficulty off the tee.
The Mountain Course on the other hand features the undulating greens that would require uphill approaches. Most of the greens in this course are mounded and elevated that can be tricky on the part of the golfers. If you want to get through and score high, have the accurate tee shots. Just like in the # 17 that measures 557 yards, if the tee shot is too far, chances are you will end up at the rough. In 2002, the greens were resurfaced with the Tiff-dwarf Bermuda grasses.
