    Hi Team Titleist, My Wife and I are headed to the Nevada/AZ/Utah border area, and I was thinking of playing Wolf Creek. I've played it on video games since I was a kid, and it looks like an unreal place to chase the ball around. Has anyone here played it? Is it walkable? Is it worth it? and obviously, are there any other hidden gems in the area we should consider? Thanks so much, Fairways and Greens Hotsauce

    Love the course. I've only played it one time, but it's the best course I've played. I wouldn't recommend walking it. The elevation change is unreal. If you do go, make sure to check out the view from the back tees, even if you don't play them, they have amazing views.
  3. I played like 15 holes but it was still one of my favorite tracks ever. Falcon Ridge and Conestoga are supposed to be nice. Sand Hollow is another 45-60 north east but could potentially be better than Wolf Creek. Haven't played any aside from WC but have a buddy trip on the docket that's well researched.
  4. Wolf Creek is a great course, but I would not walk it. There are a lot of elevation changes that would wear you out. If you're that close, why not play it. I played Coyote Springs last weekend and that is a great course out in the middle of nowhere, but in the same general vicinity. I also like Conestoga in Mesquite as well. Have fun and hit 'em straight.
  5. It's been a few years, but I've played it twice. Not very conducive to walking but a great looking course. Video game doesn't do it justice. I would recommend it.

    I played it about 4 years ago. Great track we took a cart. Quite pricey did enjoy the challenge. I would try Conestoga golf club in Mesquite. Personally I enjoyed Conestoga better than Wolf Creek but, both are very good. Again my opinion is four years old.

    Enjoy it Sauce. Doubtful you would want to walk it. Have fun in your travels with C.

    So if you have the chance, play Wolf Creek. The course looks and feels exactly like the video game. Almost every tee ball is severely elevated, but the landing areas are generous. It's a lot of fun and totally fantasy land golf.

    I wouldn't call it a hard course by any means. I'm a short hitter, and did just fine from the blue tees which were as far back as they had the track set up that day. I hit several shots from the tips because I wanted to walk out there and see the looks. The carry is maybe 10-20 yards farther between blue and black on most holes, but you're also 10-20 feet higher up too. Most of the time my tee balls landed pretty close to each other, some even went further from the tips. I'd recommend anyone who plays WC (or anywhere) - play your correct set of tee boxes. There's a ton of choices at WC and the forward tees are very playable. That said, be sure to check out the views from a handful of the back tees. The scenery is drastically different and you won't have to worry about a 220+ carry.

    While the tee shots and approaches didn't seem all that demanding, the greens were tricky as can be. There's a lot of subtle and not so subtle breaks out there. IMO the practice green does not prepare you for what you'll see.
    The little chipping green near the range (range was awful) is a better representation of the actual slopes, but not the speed. Some of the downhill putts were impossible to stop, and some of the uphill putts required a full turn to get the ball to the hole.

    While the greens and tee boxes were a little beat up, the fairways were some of the nicest I've ever seen. I would recommend everyone play it once, regardless of your ability, but I wouldn't go out of my way to play it again. I'd probably loop some of the Utah courses or go back to Piaute.

    Mesquite seems like a solid place for a golf trip. It's an easy ride from the strip and is littered with golf courses and golf paraphernalia. There's not much other than golf and gambling, but that's plenty for the guys I know.

    Take a cart because walking that track would be next to impossible. The gas carts struggled to make it through the ridiculous amount of elevation changes on pretty much every hole.
