Where to Stay
The Casablanca Hotel, Resort Golf and Spa: Visitors driving in from Las Vegas will find the Casablanca hotel on the city’s west side, just as they enter town. The casino hosts gaming, concerts and food, and the resort is the perfect base-camp for a golf excursion. The hotel’s huge pool and cabanas are a great place to cool off after a round. casablancaresort.com.
Virgin River Hotel and Casino offers stay and play packages for as low at $79. virginriver.com/golf.
Casablanca Golf Course: The course is a classic desert challenge and is strong enough to be the site of the Nevada Open. The tournament visits Mesquite Nov. 7 to 9 with an estimated $150,000 purse and rounds at the Palms and CasaBlanca golf courses with CasaBlanca hosting the final round on Nov. 9.
The Palms Golf Course features more than 200 palm trees and a ton of water to challenge visitors. The front-nine is where the water is, and the back-nine heads into the mountains for serious terrain. casablancaresort.com/golf/palms/
Two-player tournaments: The golf community in Mesquite for many years hosted the Mesquite Amateur outings but recently announced they were dropping that lineup in lieu of an expanded series of two-player tournaments to be held just at Casablanca, Palms and Conesstoga courses. Two-man tournaments are planned for Nov. 11 and 12 this year, and Feb. 16-18 and May 24-26.
Other courses dot the region including Falcon Ridge on the northwest side (a rolling challenge that climbs into the foothills), Sand Hollow Resort’s championship course, Coral Canyon and Sky Mountain Golf Club.
