The Championship Golf Course
Since it was officially opened in 1967, The Championship Golf Course has been one of the finest facilities of its kind nationwide. Long and tough from the tournament tees — par 72, 7,555-yard course — The Championship Golf Course offers six sets of tee markers to challenge and enhance the enjoyment of any golfer. The Championship Golf Course boasts fairways that stretch out long and wide on hilly terrain that undulates up and down, right and left - all factors that make it difficult to reach the rolling, well-manicured greens. Stray shots often land in the rough, loose desert sand, water or sagebrush.
