The Lexington course at Revere Golf Club
The Lexington provides dramatic scenery along a track that has gained acclaim for its challenging design. With a top slope rating of 139 and tees that measure 7143 yards from the tips, experienced golfers will have their work cut out in trying to play to their handicap. Alternate sets measure 6590 with a 131 slope, 5941/123 slope and 5305 yards with a slope rating of 117. With frequent elevated tee areas, many holes play shorter than the advertised yardages – though the wind can be a huge factor.
The opening hole bends to the left, with that side guarded by a daunting bunker complex off the tee. Stay to the right center, and you will have lots of fairway, and green to work with. Number two is an amazing par five that plays from an elevated tee. Players from the 2 back tees will have to negotiate the desert mountain while bending their shot left to right, but those playing the alternate sets will find a much clearer shot to the short grass. On the approach, there is plenty of room for error in the grass moguls that surround the putting complex. The fairway narrows past the 150 pole on number three – a long four par that is rated as the course’s # 1 handicap. Golfers should aim to the right center off the tee, and must avoid the left side near the green, as a desert deep gully awaits.
The 4th is a beautiful par three from an elevated tee area leading to a challenging green complex over a desert wash, and is situated on a plateau fronted by a steep slope with daunting mounds. Miss the putting surface here and the up and down will be a difficult one. The water hazard near the tee areas should not come into play on five. Land it on the fairway to the left center, and this is a fairly score-able hole. A tee shot aimed about 15 yards to the right of the 150 yard pole should leave an easy approach on 6. The slope on the right may funnel slightly mis-hit shots towards the fairway, though a hidden bunker on the hill creates a formidable detriment to par. A pond on the right comes into play about 50 yards away.
The views from the 7th tee are stunning, but it is important to stay focused as this tee shot is a tricky one. The best plan is to stay left of center all the way to the green, as the slope along the right will create some very challenging lies. The approach is also demanding, as the double tiered green is guarded by bunkers and desert area, with a beautiful waterfall behind. A simple par three on eight is followed by a pretty closing hole, with great views of the Vegas Strip from behind the green.
The back side features a couple challenging par fives on 11 and 16, and opens with a short but intimidating par four that invites a tee shot aimed at the “S” in the cart path. The approach is the most challenging of the day, as a high soft shot must clear a formidable desert ravine, without running through the putting surface.
Eleven is perhaps the most beautiful hole! It plays from an elevated tee to a fairway that slopes right to left, inviting a tee shot off the right bank. The second shot is true risk/reward. Golfers may choose to lay-up to the landing area to the right near the 150 pole, or venture over the left edge of the desert island blocking the fairway. Clear this hazard by 10-30 yards and a level lie awaits. Stray too far to the left – and you will be faced with a severe lie with the ball below your feet. Twelve doglegs right to a raised green, and invites a tee shot hit towards the 150 yard stake.
The par 3 13th features a formidable water hazard along the left. Short right is a smart play here. The par four 14th plays a whopping 442 yards from the tips, and is tough off the tee from any of the boxes, as a desert ravine quickly comes into play on the right side, leaving little room for error. A desert wash cuts across the fairway about 100 yards out, and is nearly 25 yards wide, helping to make this one of the course’s toughest pars.
Number 15 is really nice, and is very score-able if an accurate lay-up can be placed to the right center off the tee. The approach over a desert area is slightly uphill. You can grip it and rip it off the tee on 16, but the second shot must be carefully placed short of the rock retaining wall that guards the elevated green complex. Par is a great score on this beautiful but challenging par five. Seventeen is a gorgeous par three with water hazards short and left of the green, and precedes a score-able finishing hole. The par four 18th bends left to right with a narrow fairway opening 150 yards out. Land it on the short grass and the approach is simple.
The Concord course at Revere Golf Club
The Concord is noted for its great conditioning, scenery and wide fairways and landing areas that make the course playable for all levels of golfers. The front nine is the shorter of the two, but with elevation changes on every hole, and nearly every shot.
The opening hole plays downhill and bends to the right. There is ample room on both sides of the fairway, though the pines on the right need to be avoided. The green is quite undulating. The second is a reasonable par five, that also plays downhill to an undulating putting surface. It is reachable for long hitters. Mounds surrounding the green, and distance (468 from the tips), provides the challenge on number three, which is open and downhill off the tee.
The 4th is a bit tighter. Aim over the bunkers on the left, or lay-up past the 150 stake for the best approach and a reasonable birdie try. A beautiful par three follows. It plays from an elevated tee with water short and bunkers deep of the green. There is some bail out room right. The sixth presents a tight and rolling fairway, but can be reached off the tee by long hitters. This is followed by an intimidating tee shot on seven. There is more room than it appears here. Aim for the 150 on a fairway that slopes left to right. This is one of the best birdie opportunities you will find. The eighth is a beauty. A rock wall borders a dry creek bed that also serves as a drainage wash. The closing hole on the front is a tough one. It doglegs left and plays extremely uphill, all the way to the green. There is a huge bunker guarding the putting complex.
The 10th is a relatively short par four that demands accuracy off the tee and on the approach. It plays downhill off the tee, but the green is elevated with bunkers along the right side. Eleven features fairway bunkers right and left, with another narrow approach. Gorgeous views abound on the long par three 12th. The tee is elevated and there is plenty of room short. Bunkers long and desert right create the demand for accuracy here.
Thirteen plays downhill with plenty of room along the left side. Fairway bunkers right and a triple tiered green provide a stiff challenge. There also is a huge ridge on the green of number 14, which plays fairly open off the tee with a narrow approach. Lay up short of the bunker in the middle of the fairway on the next hole. This short par four is a challenge due to the strategically placed sand traps and its uphill nature. The green here also can be tough dependent upon pin placement, as the putting surface is V shaped. There also is a huge bunker right but plenty of room off the tee on 16, as it plays back down the valley.
At 551 from the tips, the 17th will play extremely long, as it is entirely uphill all the way to the green. Walk this fairway and you are getting a workout. The green is long and narrow. Now for the gorgeous finishing hole, that you see pictured in our first photo. After an open tee shot, you will be confronted with a decision. Go for the green in two if you want to test you length and skills or lay up if you have a good round going. Hit just past the 150 on your second, and hope for a good, high approach. Anything long will find the bunkers in back; anything short will get wet!
