Stallion Mountain Country Club offers a "member for a day" experience to tourists
LAS VEGAS -- Stallion Mountain Country Club is a semi-private golf course that strives to offer that "member for a day" experience to tourists.
With their green fees, each guest is given a personalized locker, bag tag and pouch and the cart even has your name on it -- just a few little things trying to make you a "somebody" in Vegas. It also has an inclusive practice area, so getting the course a little early has many benefits.
The golf course boasts a Southwestern cowboy theme, with horse saddles on the driving range and horseshoes as tee markers, among other things. The course has recently been rerouted, and the once difficult finish is now holes four, five and six. Improvements have been made to the clubhouse as well.
The golf course itself is as difficult as you want to make it: More than 7,300 yards from the championship tees and 6,900 from the middle-backs. There are five tees total, so you can move up as much as you'd like. Some of the course's green complexes are challenging, and missing to the wrong part of the green can make your score rise quick. Most holes from the tee feel tighter than they actually are: bunkers and mounding can trick the eye. There are also a handful of ponds that come into play, most notably on par 3s and the par-5 first.
Stallion Mountain C.C. is one of the closest golf courses to the Las Vegas Strip, just over six miles east on Flamingo Road.
