Las Vegas Review-Journal
Two decades ago, PGA legend and prolific golf course architect Arnold Palmer teamed up with Ed Seay to create one of Southern Nevada’s most complete golf centers, Angel Park Golf Club. Comprising two championship-length golf courses, the lighted Cloud Nine par 3 track, a grown-up miniature golf course and a spacious practice facility, Angel Park quickly established itself as a great place to tune the wrenches. Twenty years later, this local jewel has lost none of its luster, remaining a perennial Las Vegas Review-Journal “Readers’ Poll” favorite and among the most popular golf destinations in the valley.
Angel Park has maintained its standing in the community by offering excellent conditions at a reasonable cost, a welcome combination given current economic times. Of the complex’s two full-length tracks, Mountain is the more challenging, although the shorter Palm course — with its numerous forced carries — is a nightmare for those prone to worm-burners. Long, difficult par 4s are the stars on the par-71 Mountain course, which runs 6,722 yards from the tips and a comfortable 6,223 paces from the commonly used championship set.
