Black Mountain Golf & Country Club

Black Mountain Golf & Country Club is a hidden gem, rich with Las Vegas history. As one of the oldest courses in the Valley, Black Mountain presents many challenges to golfers of all skill levels with its traditional layout. 

Founders is the original nine holes built in 1957. The opening three holes, affectionately named Black Mountain's "Amen Corner," will test even the best players' skills. The par 4, second hole, measures 430 yards from the back tees, and history shows with the prevailing headwind, it plays much longer. The par 3, third hole, plays 188 yards to a small heavily bunkered green with treacherous undulations to complete the 3-hole challenge.

Horizon opened in 1963 to complete the original 18 holes. The Horizon nine is more open than Founders with well-bunkered greens. The par 5, fourth hole, plays 544 yards, with out of bounds left and desert right, placing a premium on accuracy. The green is guarded both left and right by bunkers and a water hazard right of the green requires a strategic second shot lay-up. This course offers several birdie opportunities and the chance for a player to score well.
