A new Stallion and a Midnight Ride
In mid 90’s Las Vegas was quickly becoming one of the hottest golf destinations in the country and golf architects of Schmidt & Curly were working on multiple projects in the area. The talented architects were asked to renovate one of Vegas’ popular private clubs originally fashioned by noted golf architect Jeff Brauer and player consultant Jim Colbert called Stallion Mountain Country Club. A bit of history surrounds the club as it hosted the 1991 Las Vegas Invitational PGA Tour event, and also more recently host to the golf reality tv show the Big Break II. In 2000, Schmidt and Curly created new fairway contours, modified and added new bunkers, which provided a fresh look to Stallion Mountain. Recently, a new owner and management from OB Sports has brought a true passion for golf to the club, with a dedication to top notch playing conditions and excellent customer service, the semi-private club is again destined to be a favorite of Vegas golfers.
Another favorite among locals and visitors are the two golf courses at The Revere, themed after Paul Revere’s famous midnight ride as the start of the American Revolution. These two courses are meant to strike a “Revolutionary Golf Experience” with a galloping, wild-ride from start to finish. Both layouts feature numerous elevated tee boxes, and high-flying downhill tee shots that seemingly hang into the Vegas skyline forever. The talented golf architects team of Billy Casper and Greg Nash collaborated on this one to craft some of the most fun risk/reward holes in Vegas at The Revere.
