Admit it: Your love for golf has never been stronger. You’ve searched far and wide for that ultimate golf challenge. The one that you’ll tell your buddies about for years to come. The one that will bring you back for more. Congratulations. You’ve found it at Wolf Creek Golf Club in Mesquite, Nevada. The course – tucked into the northeast corner in Mesquite – is carved beautifully out of the desert. The layout will test your game with its stunning layout, overwhelm you with its dazzling beauty and overwhelm you with its breath-taking views…all at the same time. Step to the tee – sometimes 100 feet above lush green-striped fairways – and be prepared for the thrill ride of a lifetime.
Do you dare take on Wolf Creek? If your answer is yes, be prepared to tackle one of those rare golf experiences you’ll be talking about for years to come. Mesquite golf course Wolf Creek Golf Club is annually posted on “Best of” magazine lists, but one honor that seems to create as much, if not more interest, is the inclusion of the course in the Tiger Woods EA Sports video game. Recently, a browser/online version was released to go along with the game component version, and Wolf Creek officials say that the golfers from around the globe play the computer version then travel to Wolf Creek to experience the real thing.
“I can’t tell you how many times I go into the restaurant or talk to people in the clubhouse who tell me they have played the virtual game, but had to come here and see the real thing,” says Joel Villanos, Wolf Creek General Manager. “We’re very proud to be a part of the EA Sports Tiger Woods game, and it’s now even more exciting because of the online browser version they have released this year. We get people playing from all over the world who have played the game, and it has been terrific exposure for us.” “It’s bringing in a very different demographic than we have typically been used to,” EA Sports President Peter Moore said in a USA Today article recently. “The average age of the typical person who played the open beta was 40 years old. It’s an affluent consumer, $65,000 a year and upwards, and 90% of them play golf in the real world. We are also seeing that they love the fact that you can play three or four holes and suspend the game, close the browser down and come right back in three or four hours later when you’ve got more time and play exactly where you left off.”
