LAS VEGAS, NV– They say, “A classic never goes out of style,” and that’s just the case with Spanish Trail Country Club. Opening in 1984, the Club then and now is proud to offer one of the Southwest’s finest golf courses, a 27-hole-championship course designed by the pre-eminent, Robert Trent Jones, Jr. The course, which has been home to the PGA Tour’s Las Vegas Invitational, sits amongst undulating hills with tree-lined fairways, over 120 bunkers, and fifteen lakes bearing streams and waterfalls. Having 27 holes enables great variety of play to meet anyone’s game challenge.
The New Spanish Trail Country Club has taken the best of its country club tradition and combined it with a commitment to delivering more amenities, social activities, and services demanded by today’s active generation. The Club’s management and Board of Directors are focused on delivering great diversity of social activities while combining them with great golf and sporting experiences.
The Sunrise Course measures a total of 3,426 yards from the championship tees and features our signature 9th Hole waterfall located next to the clubhouse. The Sunrise Course features large undulating greens with rolling fairways. The approach shots on the Sunrise course are critical because of the potential hole locations that can be treacherous if the ball is on the wrong side of the hole. The Sunrise Course also features one of the PGA Tour’s most challenging par three holes. The fifth hole was ranked as one of the toughest holes on the PGA Tour when Spanish Trail Country Club hosted the Las Vegas Invitational in the late 1980’s.
The Lakes Course is appropriately named as water comes into play on six of the nine holes. There are forced carries over water on several holes and the greensides are guarded by water on five of the six holes. One of the most beautiful par five holes in Southern Nevada is Lakes #2, a 601 yard challenge from the championship tee with a water-protected green located next to a beautiful waterfall. The scenic number three is our signature par three hole. It measures 180 yards from the championship tee and requires a carry over two lakes. Again, like all Robert Trent Jones, Jr. designs, there is a premium on your approach shots because of the fast and undulating greens.
The Canyon Course is the longest and most challenging course at Spanish Trail Country Club, measuring 3,576 yards from the championship tees. With its recent desert landscaping completed in 2004, it has taken on the beautiful look of a desert style golf course combined with a classic Robert Trent Jones, Jr. design. The Canyon course has two beautiful par threes, including the second hole which has a gorgeous lake and waterfall located next to the green. The finishing stretch of numbers 7, 8 & 9 will test even the best golfers. Number seven is a 215 yard par three framed by bunkers and desert landscaping; par is a very good score. The eighth hole is a 567 yard par five which plays much longer than the actual yardage, as water protects the green and comes into play on an errant second shot. The ninth hole measures 421 yards and has an elevated green protected by deep bunkers. (www.spanishtrailcc.com)
