OASIS GOLF CLUB PALMER COURSE (702) 346-7820
Las Vegas Golf Course Review
The Oasis Golf Club is located 80 miles from the Las Vegas strip in Mesquite, NV. The Arnold Palmer designed "Palmer Course" and David Druzisky designed "Canyons
Course" is home to Mesquite's only 36-hole facility. The master planned Mesquite Vistas property is also home to Mesquite's largest clubhouse which includes a grille room,
"members only" bar & restaurant, member's lounge, locker rooms and a magnificent patio view of the Virgin mountain range.
Each course features outstanding conditioning from tee to green, and is well marked with sprinkler heads about the course and yardage blocks at 100,150 and 00 yards
measured to the center of the green. Color coded flags indicate front, middle and back hole locations, which is important information to have on the large, sloping putting surfaces
prominent on both layouts.
In April 2018, PowerTee was completed on the Oasis driving range and became the first course in Nevada to introduce it to its members, instructors, and students. For more

The Palmer course has hosted many events including the Nevada Open and Golf Channel's "Big Break VIII". Mr. Palmer proclaimed hole #6 to be the signature hole of the course and also one of his top 18 holes he has ever designed. Watch out for the natural wildlife all around the course as many areas have designated as Environmental Sensitive Areas.
From the tips, the course measures almost 6,700 yards, however accuracy off the 100-foot elevation drops from tee to fairways demand precision. The Palmer course is naturally
set into the Mohave Desert like the Canyons course however the awe-inspiring views set the Palmer course into its own category of beauty.
After an inauspicious start, the layout warms up on the par four 3rd, which features a blind tee shot to a rolling fairway that dips to the left to a green complex guarded by a
landscaped water hazard short of the putting surface. This is a pretty challenging approach - but does not come close to the daunting tee shot one is confronted with on number
five - a par five that plays from an elevated tee area to a landing zone that forms a sea of green between pink rock canyon walls. It is worth it to drive up to the championship tees
to view this hole from the top of the mountain. Number 7 plays over a desert ravine and the par five 7th is very similar in design to the spectacular 5th. Subsequent holes play in
between and over desert ravines and crevices that will challenge golfers to play their best shots. There are some terrific photo opportunities on this layout, which also includes
some beautiful water holes. The finishing 18th is a par four that plays from a very elevated tee to a fairway bordered by residences on the hill to the left, and a lake to the right that
affects both the tee shot and approach.
There are five sets of tees on the Palmer, playing to distances measuring between 6,468 yards (slope/rating: 134/71.3) and 4,226 yards (slope/rating: 110/65.1). This is one of
our favorite layouts in the entire Las Vegas region - and one that we recommend highly - worth the 1 hour trip from Vegas...
