Desert Rose Golf Course is nestled in the eastern portion of Old Las Vegas, just minutes from “The Strip.” Desert Rose Golf Course was one of the first golf facilities built in Las Vegas and has all the charm of an early modern design.
Designed and built in 1964 by the tandem of Dick Wilson and Joe Lee (i.e. Bay Hill, Doral, and Callaway Gardens) this par 71 traditional layout is fun for golfers of all skill levels. The beauty of Desert Rose’s design is that for every player-friendly feature, there is also an element of challenge.
Over 6,500 yards from the back tees, this challenging, yet fair 18 hole track is enhanced by tight manicured fairways and challenging green complexes. Probably the most demanding hole at the Desert Rose Golf Course is the Par 5 fourth. At 607 yards, this long and tight par 5 has out-of-bounds on the left and water on the right. Like many of the holes at “The Rose” this par 5 will test your skills as well as your mental toughness.
