Rhodes Ranch Golf Club provides a world-class challenge near the Las Vegas Strip
LAS VEGAS -- Located just minutes from the legendary Las Vegas Strip, Rhodes Ranch Golf Club is a rising star in the Vegas golf world.
Opened in November 1997, the course was hand-crafted by architect Ted Robinson, who created a challenging layout, famed for its collection of par 3s. Suitable for golfers of all experience levels, the course has matured into not only one of the best-conditioned in the area but also one of its most playable, too.
The signature hole is No. 3, a 227-yard par 3 that features water guarding the entire right side of the green. In fact, water is a re-occurring theme at the 162-acre Rhodes Ranch, along with gentle, rolling fairways, varying elevations, and stunning city and mountain views.
You'll get your first big challenge at No. 6, the hardest hole on the course. The lengthy par 4 requires a long drive onto an increasingly narrow fairway, followed by a green protected on all sides by bunkers. Finish strong on the stunning 18, which throws everything at you. Bunkers challenge your drive, while your approach is over a stream and waterfalls to a two-tiered green.
You'll forget you are in the desert at the 6,909-yard Rhodes Ranch, a course that will lose you in its tropical environment and provide you with a world-class golf experience.
