Three distinctive and challenging courses are located at the only 54-hole facility in Las Vegas, which at one time or another hosted major PGA Tour Golf Tournaments such as the Frank Sinatra Celebrity Classic and the Las Vegas Invitational.

and and the newly remodeled which have been designed to reflect the integrity and natural surroundings, are accessible for guests through a reciprocal agreement with the country club members and affiliate hotels. This reporter was asked to play a round at the newly remodeled Man O' War Course.

Jetsetters Magazine Golf MallThe hay-looking heather that is the last remains from the summer Bermuda distinctively borders the rolling emerald bent grass fairways that were seeded for the winter months in Rye. Highlighted with many new bunkers protecting the angulating greens, it is landscaped with over 3,000 varying types of trees and acres of spectacularly designed lakes, as well as little gardens of natural desert rocks, plants and sand.

After the beautiful first hole is behind you and you are loosened up, the evils of Stallion Mountain are well upon you. Starting with Hole #2, named Hell Bunker, a short par 4 with 295 yards from the middle (gold) tees is laced on both sides of the fairway with sand traps. Therefore, a long iron or fairway wood properly positioned down the left side will leave the golfer with a wedge in to a long, but narrow green for a great birdie opportunity.

the number three handicapped is a 397-yard, par 4. Watch out for the three fairway bunkers on the right, therefore a well-positioned drive to the left-center of the fairway is your best bet. If you get over zealous and pull your drive, a row of trees skirting the left side of the fairway protects Daredevil from over-conservative shots. Your second shot is long to the uphill and steep green. Long is better than short, so be daring and happy with a par.

the par 5, 506 yard is the number one handicapped hole, lined with bunkers requiring golfers to hit their drive in good enough position for a second shot from the right-center of the fairway. This sets up into tricky green with a short iron. Be gratified with a five!

, is a short, but risky par 3 with 129 yards to the middle of the green. Correct club selection is a must because a hit into the large bunker before the green has been know to be fatal to your score.

, which is shorter than the average par 5 is very reachable in two for the longer hitters. This birdie hole can turn on you fast if you flirt with any of the bunkers that underscore this hole. A second shot over the bunker will leave an uphill chip and a golden birdie opportunity!

, Vegas Show Ticketssets up as a 179-yarder and bordered by distinguishing heather. It is an uphill hole, that is, if you have a need to find the minuscule fairway. Use an extra club on this tough par 3. Anything short is in the beach and if you miss the green grab your sand wedge; you'll need it at least once!

is the time to press your tee shot to the right so to leave you a short to medium iron to reach the elevated green in regulation. The green side bunker is deadly, so make your four and win the press!

requires the golfer to avoid the bunker on the left side of the fairway. Remember to aim your second shot and avoid the ball-collecting greenside bunker. Don't be a victim here!

, the par 4, number two handicapped is a right-center target for the drive which will cut some of the yardage off the sharp dogleg. A huge second shot to the long green will need accurate club selection. The bunkers on entry are mean as the bird they are named for! Get away with a par and don't be selfish for this birdie!
