A prestigious semi-private club located fifteen minutes away from the Strip, Stallion Mountain Club is open to guests of select hotels, as well as corporate or private events. Having been taken over by EAGL Golf in the past few years and completely revamped, the course now provides a par-72, 18-hole course lined with pine trees and hazardous bunkers. Stallion offers a beautiful, exclusive, and varied golf escape in a Southwestern theme.
Though the original design of Stallion Mountain consisted of three courses by Jim Colbert and Jeff Brauer, Lee Schmidt and Brian Curley modified it into one course in 2004, adding tiered fairways, dramatic green complexes, and plenty of deep sand traps and water hazards. Players will encounter them on long par-4’s and tricky par-3’s, namely the 5th hole. Wind proves the biggest foe on this hole, which carries over a pond. The course ends with a bang on the 452-yard par 4 18th, which features water bordering the green on the right.
Accuracy and length off the tee are necessary skills if you want to get a good score at Stallion, and the Bermuda greens can prove tricky for those lacking a solid short game. Drivers will come into use frequently on the course, which can play long at 7,272 yards from the back tees. Five tee options are available, though, allowing players a nice amount of options when it comes to catering the course to their skill level.
Though not as dramatically landscaped as other Las Vegas courses, Stallion provides lovely views of nearby mountains and the distant Strip. The course’s Southwestern theme also provides a charming setting, with small but whimsical decorative touches throughout the course. Horseshoes serve as tee markers, and marked whiskey barrels provide the basis of most signage throughout the course.
Players will feel like the red carpet has been rolled out for them at Stallion Mountain, which provides each guest with a personalized locker, bag tag and leather pouch, and even a golf cart with your name on it. A hearty breakfast or lunch can be enjoyed at Squirres Clubhouse, which is open to non-members. The club also features an on-site golf shop and practice facilities. Groups of up to 600 can be accommodated at Stallion Mountain, which frequently hosts private events and weddings.
