Welcome to Chimera, where quality, character and good taste and all ways to identify a truly great wine, why not have the same experience with a golf course. Designed by Ted Robinson, Chimera Golf Club is one the newest courses to arrive on the Las Vegas golf scene. Re-opened on July 17, 2004 and designed by Ted Robinson, this lush Par-72 has all the makings of a premier course and will most likely become a favorite for those would want a great day of golf. It wins awards annually for service, course conditions and overall playability, not to mention the views of the mountains and Las Vegas strip are outstanding.
The course is playable for all levels, however better players will notice strategically placed bunkering that comes into play from the back tees on most holes. Featuring 68 white-sand bunkers, one must be fairly accurate from the tee box and on approach shots to avoid spending the day in “the beach.” Using the natural desert terrain, Tuscany gives the golfer a nice sensation of desert golf inside of a housing development. Also, there are water features on holes #9 and #18 that will highlight your round and create enough challenge for even the best player to conquer. #18 is a really strong finishing hole with a green that almost feels like an island that can be an intimidating final shot for anyone.
Chimera will fit the bill for a nice, casual round of golf in a setting that is pristine. The project at Chimera portrays the romantic elegance of its Tuscany wine theme. Uniquely displayed rammed earth walls and signature wine barrel signage are prominent throughout the project, along with tee boxes – aptly named Verde, Lilla, Rossa and Giallo. The golf course offers breathtaking views of the Southern Nevada Mountains and the Las Vegas Strip. Groups of all sizes can be accommodated for outings, whether it’s for golf, for business or for that special occasion. Traditional in design with generous fairways, large undulating greens and sparkling white bunkers, the Chimera Golf Club is the place to play in the Las Vegas Valley.
With the addition of the new clubhouse in October of 2012, the facility can now handle larger groups and special events. The course lays Rye most of the year and Bermuda for the hotter climate for the fairways, but the greens are Bermuda year around. The greens have moderate to tricky breaks due to the undulations and unique layout.
