Southern Highlands Golf Club is as exclusive and luxurious a golf experience that you will find not only in southern Nevada, but anywhere in the country. The golf course is one of only 4 in the world co-designed by the late Robert Trent Jones Sr. and his son, Robert Trent Jones Jr. This luxurious desert oasis comes complete with panoramic views to the north of the famous Las Vegas Strip, as well as playing host to a PGA Tour event. Membership is limited to only 360 members and is by invitation only. The traditional design features perfectly manicured fairways, greens, and landscaping, as well as dramatic elevation changes and beautiful water features, making for a unique golf experience.

Southern Highlands Golf Club opened in 2000, and ever since, has received awards and accolades. Golfweek has rated Southern Highlands Golf Club among the top 15 golf communities in the nation, as well as Travel and Leisure Golf’s annual best places to live in its “America’s Top 100 Golf Communities”, and ranked 34th in Golf Digest Index for the best of the modern-day golf courses in the nation, amongst others.

The golf course begins to really test golfers from the start. The par-3 2nd hole that stretches 201 yards gives a stern test with bunkers left, and natural vegetation to the right. If you miss the green its best to be short, however, the multi-tiered green slopes away from the tee box from left to right.

The par-4 5th hole is a classic risk/reward hole. The hole is a short 365 yards and tempts the longer hitters to take aim at the green from the tee. However, accuracy is a necessity to avoid the bunkers to the left and water guarding the right. The carry over the water is 250 yards so golfers will need to get all of their tee shot. To play the hole safe, hit a long iron or fairway wood to the landing area left of the green and leave yourself a short approach shot.

The par-4 15th hole is another decision making hole. The hole stretches a lengthy 485 yards, and has a bunker strategically placed on the right side of the fairway. Clear the bunker and cut off major distance for your approach shot into the green, or play it safe by hitting short of the bunker and a long iron awaits. The green ahead is surrounded by bunkers, thus accuracy and distance control being essential.

The 18th hole is a monster of a hole stretching 622 yards and giving you several decision making opportunities. The fairway is a split fairway, bisected by water. Decisions, decisions, decisions – play your tee shot to the left and have a shorter route to the green. However, water comes into play as well as a smaller landing area. If you choose to play to the right, the fairway is more generous with fewer hazards, but leaves you with a longer route and a blind shot over water to the green. All of this makes for a terrific finishing signature hole up toward the Southern Highlands Clubhouse.

The Southern Highlands Clubhouse is 42,000 square feet of elegance. The Tuscan-style design features high wood-beamed ceilings, enormous picture windows, and beautiful stairway leading to elegant private dining rooms. The 19th Hole Grill provides a great atmosphere for a relaxing evening with friends or entertaining business associates.

The clubhouse also includes lounges and locker rooms, as well as a golf library and concierge services.
