Welcome to Black Mountain, or as they call it “One of Southern Nevada’s Best Kept Secrets.” This is a course with history being that the first 9 holes were constructed and played in 1959. Set back in the Black Mountains of Henderson, Black Mountain Golf & Country Club designed by Bob Baldock, is an affordable golf experiences in the Las Vegas valley. A USGA Public Links qualifying course for the last 15 years, Black Mountain brings 18 holes of traditional style golf.
The original 18 holes are referred to as the Founders nine and Horizon nine. The Founders was the first nine holes open for play back in 1959. It is lined with cypress, olive, and pine trees making you pay for your errant shots. If you keep it in the fairways being that they are slightly wider than traditional fairways, a birdie may be in your sites. The Horizon nine has less of the same, but both courses offer bentgrass greens that are well bunkered. The older style layout shows with the small size of the greens and the thickened Bermuda just off the fringe. You might also notice that the greens will slope toward Lake Mead…so ask someone which way the lake is and that might help you on a hole or two
