Concord Course – Revere at Anthem

The Revere at Anthem, in Henderson, just a little outside of Las Vegas, is a well known golf vacation stopover. Golfers know they are in for one tough joyride in the Revere’s Concord Course. The Billy Casper/Greg Nash creation will take golfers in a roller coaster adventure through Nevada’s most scenic desert locations.

Measuring 7,034 yards from the longest tees, the Concord Course has an ideal location in one of the highest points in the valley. With majority of the natural desert terrain retained, the golf vacation destination has very dramatic elevation changes and breathtaking views. Rocky outcroppings, bunkers, wide fairways and large greens all make up the wild ride of a game. The level of challenge rises and falls just as much as there are changes in elevation. And the most fascinating of it all is a most appropriate ending: the 18th hole – a long, downhill par 5 aptly called “Independence”. The greens are guarded by a ravine at the front, demands all the precision and accuracy for the golfer. Tricky at best, traitor at worst. This is considered not only the best closing hole in Las Vegas, but the best golfing hole in the area. A most fitting ending to a tough joyride.

The scenery surrounding the Concord Course is among the best anyone could ask for when sightseeing. Good scenery, even better layout – no wonder this course holds a four and a half star rating from Golf Digest’s Places to Play and a “Best New Course in Las Vegas” award (2002). The course is difficult but forgiving; it could be hard to play at times – but it is harder not to! It would be even more difficult to forgive having to miss a golf trip here!
