Lexington Course – The Revere at Anthem

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. But a true golfing aficionado does not stop and stay in Vegas for his ultimate golf vacation. He goes just a little outside the Sin City, in Henderson, and knows that he is where he should be. The Revere at Anthem is a 36-hole spectacle that has all the good things any golfer would want in a Nevada-flavored trip. And the Lexington Course will epitomize that.

The original of the two courses, the Lexington Course measures a good 7,143 yards, and plays for a par of 72. It was designed by Billy Casper and Greg Nash. And this was one collaboration that truly proves that ‘two heads are better than one’. They have magically combined what beauty there is in the desert’s natural surroundings and tweak it to become a beautiful golf vacation destination. The result is a hilly, steep desert course that is beautifully surrounded by desert mountains. Water comes to play on some holes, but it is the desert terrain that makes it very challenging – from either of its three tees. A novice will have as much challenge as the pro, no doubt.

But for the heartaches it causes, it makes up for in scenery. Golfers would forget about how difficult the game actually is at the Lexington Course especially when they get to the 14th hole onwards. This is where they get sweeping, unparalleled views of the Las Vegas Strip. Views, layout, amenities – there really is a reason for every golfer to not stay in Vegas – the real deal golf trip is at the Revere!
