Eagle Crest Golf Course: Par 60 – Executive Layout

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2006

One of the very best executive golf courses in Las Vegas is about to get even better. Eagle Crest can be found right in the heart of the Sun City Summerlin homes community in the northwest section of the Las Vegas Valley. Designed by Billy Casper and Greg Nash, you couldn’t ask for a better place to get in a quick 18 holes and still be appropriately challenged.

Consisting of six par 4’s and twelve par 3’s, Eagle Crest demands that you place the ball where it needs to be and that you read the greens with skill and care. The view of the entire Las Vegas Valley from the tee box on the eighteenth hole is truly breathtaking and your second shot to the green on 18 will surprise you as well.

What did we mean by saying that Eagle Crest is about to get even better? The course was closed on June 18th (2006) for major reconditioning and will re-open this September. All 18 greens are being completely re-done with Bermuda dwarf grass and every bunker is being re-designed and rebuilt as well. The course is now 12 years old and the improvements came at just the right time. At completion, you can expect Eagle Crest to be the premier executive-style golf course in Las Vegas.

If you have an interest in Las Vegas golf homes within the context of an age-restricted community, Sun City Summerlin real estate has plenty of inviting choices to offer.
