One highway, two world-class golf destinations. Experience Wolf Creek and Sand Hollow this winter!
A short, one-hour stretch of Interstate-15 connects two of the country’s finest and stunning golf destinations. Located in the great American Southwest, Wolf Creek and Sand Hollow are bucket-list courses that have been featured in some of the golf world’s most coveted Top 100 lists and consistently rank at the peak of their prospective state rankings. They’re two of our favorite close-range getaways and both need to be played by any avid golfer.
It’s about to get really cold here in Denver and holiday bonuses are just waiting to be used. We’d suggest our neighbors to the southwest for the best golf getaway in the region. To prove just how gorgeous these venues are, CAG took a quick trip last week to Wolf Creek and Sand Hollow among others, so take a peek and book a flight…

Wolf Creek Golf Club strives to deliver the ultimate golf experience to each and every guest. As you are called to the first tee and look down towards the green, you notice a one of a kind canvas. The detail of the striped emerald green fairway below, lined with brilliant white sand bunkers, you instantly know that Wolf Creek is a special place. As you navigate the elevation drops and wandering canyons, you wonder how they create this miraculous golf course, each hole unto its own. After finishing all eighteen holes, you are hard pressed to come up with just one signature hole and more often than not amazed with the picturesque beauty of the course rather than the score you shot.
Since opening in 2000, golfers from all over the world have traveled to Wolf Creek Golf Club in Mesquite, Nevada to experience a one of a kind golf adventure. With regularity, Wolf Creek is mentioned as a bucket list course with other renown courses like Pebble Beach, Black Wolf Run, and Bandon Dunes. Many major golf publications have ranked Wolf Creek as one of the top public courses in the country. Since 2008, Wolf Creek has been a featured course on EA Sports Tiger Woods PGA TOUR and Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR. In 2011, Wolf Creek won the prestigious Fan Choice Award naming Wolf Creek the favorite golf course to play by golf fans worldwide.
We realize it takes so much more than a beautiful, challenging golf course to be considered the Ultimate Golf Experience. It takes a committed staff dedicated to the small details and the anticipation of your needs. The exceedingly professional staff at Wolf Creek is proud to bring you the ultimate golf experience.
