For golfers who want real desert, making the 80-minute drive from Sin City's high-tech neon to Mesquite's low-tech neon is a road to travel.

For in Mesquite, there's not just old ladies at old-time slots. There's Wolf Creek Golf Club, an exceeding tough golf course where you might just run into a real-life road runner. This course features true desert canyons and all the wildlife that scampers across them.

The second tee box is 11 stories up. That's right, 11 stories up. Fantastic vision was encouraged at this Arnold Palmer design with helicopters being used to cart some of the rocks around and build higher holes. The bunkers are filled with crushed granite, providing another unique playing experience.

Wolf Creek was built to put Mesquite golf on the map. It succeeded.

Good and Bad

Wolf Creek is a challenging and unique track that winds through canyons and mesas of the Muddy Creek Formation, and requires lots of precision shots and creativity to make it a manageable play. Wayward shots can be penalized severely. On this day, pace of play was slow, and the round took about 5 1/2 hours. Some of the greens were a little beat up and didn't look like they filled in as good as they could of from September over seeding, with some bare spots and rough patches. The practice range was a little beat up and bare as well, and only part of it was open on this day. However, fairways and tee boxes overall were in good condition. All in all, a decent value and memorable golf experience worth a play.

Just do it!

Amazing course to play as a intermediate golfer! Friendly atmosphere and very professional. Didn’t get to completely focus the last two holes due to later start and frost delay but still overly impressed by the challenges each hole presents.

Thought it was high priced when I booked but I’d do it again but start in the morning to be able to complete the round. Will be back next year!

Creator of course had a TRULY DIVINE VISION!

Just like Tiger Woods golf 10'

I have played this course hundreds of times on PS2 and had very high expectations coming into the course. To say my expectations were met and exceed is an understatement. The course was beautiful and I found myself looking in all directions from the elevated tees (this probably decreased the pace of play, but I was living out a dream).

The course was in great condition and for a native Iowan the course felt like I was on Mars. The overall experience was a 98/100, two points knocked for a slow bar tender and rude starter.

This course is very difficult and there is no shame playing more forward tees. There are very scorable holes and holes that will do a number on you.

I will be making a trip back for this course specifically.

Video Game Golf

Wolf Creek is a golf course that many of us have seen growing up playing video games. This was always the course that kicked my butt on Tiger Woods Golf. So it was fun to finally see it in person.

Wolf Creek is not for the faint of heart. You need to pick the right set of tees, and have the right attitude. You're going to lose some golf balls but you're also going to hit some hero shots. The course asks you to pick a line and a Target and hit the shot, and if you do you'll be rewarded. If you don't hit the shot, you're probably in the desert and taking a penalty shot.

Our group had an absolute blast! We all knew what we were in for and so we just embraced it and I think everyone had one to two highlight shots. They were birdies to be made as well as eagles but also doubles and worse.

The conditions of Wolf Creek were the best that we saw in the Mesquite / St George area. The overseed was really successful and the course was playing very nicely. The greens were rolling true and fast.

Wolf Creek is not a course I would play everyday but it is a course that everyone should experience at least once. And if I'm ever back in the Mesquite area, I will definitely play it again!

Nice course and views

You need to be very accurate with your shots or bring many extra balls. Great views from tee boxes but too many have stairs to walk up to. After a long day in the heat, it's really exhausting. Fun course but challenging.

not for the faint of heart

The elevation changes from tee to green are insane! Course was in fabulous condition even with having the greens aerated only 4 days prior to playing.
Dinner in the dining room was delicious - on par with other fine dining in the area.

No GPS

I love love love a scenic course!!! This course really very pleasing to the eye, lots of up and down and great target golf. The only problem is that they do not have GPS on the carts and this is a course that needs it!!!!!

Course Conditions

We had a great time. Loved the course but were disappointed with the fairways. They were really dried out. A lot of our friends and family have played the course and when we showed them pictures they all said they had never seen the fairways in such bad shape. Other than that we enjoyed the experience and the food in the restaurant was delicious.
