Angel Park offers spectacular views of Red Rock Canyon and the Las Vegas Valley. Angel Park Golf Club features 36 holes of championship Las Vegas golf designed by the legendary Arnold Palmer.
The par-70 Palm Course (opened in 1989) plays 6,525 yards from the back tees with a rating/slope of 70.9/129. The shorter of the two full-size courses, it nevertheless demands solid shotmaking as it requires more forced carries off its well-manicured tee boxes, and its par 3’s are longer than those on the Mountain Course. Three par 3’s measure 200 yards or more. The shortest is the 175-yard eighth hole, where water fronts the green and a large bunker guards its back. The longest par 3 looks like a desert Stonehenge; the 220-yard 12th hole plays over desert to a green fronted by both sand and grass bunkers and flanked by two massive boulders, one on a front bunker’s back edge and another behind the green. The three par 5’s all play less than 550 yards. The 525-yard No. 6 is rated the toughest hole on the course. A drive straight toward the green on this split-fairway, double dogleg must carry desert to reach a fairway bracketed by arroyos and bunkers left and right. A tee shot to the alternate left fairway is a safer initial route, but then the second shot must carry the arroyo that runs all along the left side from tee to green. A huge bunker short left of the green further challenges the layup second shot, and another large bunker sits behind the green. The 10 par 4’s offer a full range. Six play less than 385 yards; four measure more than 400. The 459-yard 10th is one of the course’s toughest holes, with its green virtually surrounded by bunkers.
Angel Park also offers an award-winning youth program — it was VegasGolfer magazine’s 2002 readers’ pick for the best in the city. Junior camps are offered in summer.
