Designed by course designer Ted Robinson, the layout provides a decent mix of challenge and playability to golfers of all skill levels. Highlighted by a collection of par threes which Robinson calls the best that he has ever designed, this 6,909-yard course will encase you in its verdant tropical setting while providing you with a good golf experience.
Opened for play in November of 1997, Rhodes Ranch has become a local spot in the Las Vegas valley. The massive amount of water features and rolling fairways spread out over the 162 acre property provide a nice setting for a day on the links.
Number three is the signature hole at Rhodes Ranch Golf Club. This long par three demands a precise tee shot with a long iron or a fairway wood and is challenging enough for the most skilled of golfers. Water protects the right side of the green, and any shot hit in that path leaves you hoping to land in the pot bunker in front of the green. Once on the green, it presents you with a quantity of the most taxing putts you will ever witness. Par is a quality score. With multiple tee boxes, the hole does play for all calibers of golfers.
Hole number 16 at Rhodes Ranch Golf Club is another chilling par three. A long iron from the tee must carry water. If your shot veers to the left it will find the stream that feeds the lake. If your shot drifts to the right your ball will get sucked up by a well-placed bunker. As if this isn’t enough to think about, a bunker and two palm trees in the back of the green awaits an over-club. Par is a great score here as well.
The course has a nice club house including a full bar and restaurant. With Bermuda or Rye grass from tee to green depending on the season, and Bentgrass greens, Rhodes Ranch is a good choice for Las Vegas golf. Enjoy your day and make some birdies at Rhodes Ranch Golf Club.
