Went to Las Vegas with a friend and heard a lot about this course in Mesquite, NV. A friend and I decided to make the 1:15 drive east to play this course. Aside from it being 105-110* out, this was one of the best courses I've ever played. Extreme desert golf with a TON of elevation change.
Hole #1 par 5
A friend of mine on the tee box of hole # 8 242 yard par 3....all down hill.
Another drop off par 3. Hole # 11 215 yards, again, all down hill.
A view from #14 looking back at #13 green. Big dogleg right around that mountain side (on the left).
I have played Wolf Creek and agree it should be played. Once. While the views are stunning, I found Wolf Creek to be too gimmicky of a course. If anyone is in the area, try Conestoga Golf Club. The course is just a beautiful, conditions were better and the course is far more playable. This is just my opinion.
I can agree with you that some of those holes are a little over the top. The one thing I will say, is that even if you take a cart, you still find yourself walking quite a bit to get to certain tee boxes.
WC is a fun course and worth the trip while you're in Vegas. I have been up there a couple of times and always enjoyed it.
Mesquite is a fun town as well.
