Wolf Creeks was designed by Dennis and Jon Rider, an unbelievable golf course somehow created in desert canyons and wastelands in the northern Nevada desert at Mesquite. The course, like one of those Lloyd Chapman golf calendars, is a series of 18 unique holes rounding up, through, and around constant elevation changes and green complexes which play constant havoc with your game. The conditions are always supreme, soft fairways and greens, but don't stray off the course, snakes and steep with loose gravel.

Wolf Creek has 16 elevated tees with stunning drops and views, some of which require stairs to get to the tee box! You could stand there snapping pictures all day from the tee boxes and completely forget about the shot you have to hit. It's a tough course, 7,000 yards from the tips and a 154 slope, so you're just as well to forget about scoring well here, and enjoy the experience. The course is an engineering marvel, and well worth the 80 minute drive from Las Vegas.

Just played 18 this morning and they are in very rough shape from over 2 inches of rain, it was so bad that they had to shut down for the last few days. A lot of bunkers are either under water or completely washed out so they are playing as ground under repair; however, all 18 holes are open, and they've done their best to get it back in shape, but it's a little rough at the moment.

Came to Mesquite to play Wolf Creek and was everything as advertised!! Tee'd off early in morning and finished in 4:20 (including photo stops and taking in the scenery on the tee boxes) and wish it hadn't been so quick! Elevated tees galore, demanding accurate tee shots. Course is very playable if you keep tee shot in play. Excellent layout, breath taking views.. it is everything you hear and more!!

You can expect visually stunning, but very intimidating, tee shots, amazing course conditions, most likely windy if you play in the afternoon, and about a 5 hour round (not due to crowds, but just getting around the course). This course is all about the tee ball. Get it in play...and you can score. Struggle off the box...and you're in for a long day. Wolf Creek has been the crown jewel of our bi-yearly Mesquite/St. George golf trips. You will most likely leave pretty beaten up....but its worth it.

Its the most unique golf course I've ever seen. I wouldn't want it as a home course, but I'd definitely go back. Yes, there are a few tricked up holes on the course and several of the greens are borderline unfair but it is a totally unique experience. Tthe pace of play was a problem, but that was fine, we just enjoyed the views.

I have played some top notch desert courses and this one is my favorite. The layout is like a golf video game but still very playable. Every hole has a risk/reward scenario which requires that you know your limits. One minute I was giddy that I carried a drop off to the lower fairway....the next, lamenting the decision to "go for it". Excellent conditioning for the summer, but pace of play was 5 hours-yuk!

Wolf Creek alone would be worth the trip to Mesquite. The views here are unlike anything I’ve seen anywhere else. Nearly every hole could stand up well as a signature hole. The greens were surprisingly slow, but after a hole or two it was any easy adjustment. This was by far the most breathtaking course I’ve ever played. The two times I’ve played the course my playing partners and I would get to the next tee box and just look at each other with one of those “can you believe this” smiles. The last Par 3 on the front nine (#8, I think) is one of the most extraordinary holes I’ve ever played. It was like trying to hit a 200 yard shot down a bowling alley. (If you play it make certain to observe all off the balls that have lodged into the side of the sandstone around this hole) Of all the courses I’ve played in the LV area, this is the one that I would definitely want to play again. For whatever reason, WC seems to be a love it or hate it proposition. Those who criticize it often cite it for being unfair or gimmicky. Frankly, I don’t see it. With the possible exception of the extremely difficult par 3 third hole, (imagine trying to hit a low to mid-iron up an elevator shaft), I think the rest of the holes are fair tests of your golf skills with tremendous views to boot. It may not be one of the best layouts I’ve ever played, but it easily is one of the most spectacular.

Some of the most spectacular views are from one tee further back. I played here in the spring and it was incredible. To this day I don't know if it was the best course I've ever played or the worst, but it's absolutely the most unique. I spent at least the first 9 holes just gawking over the views and forgetting I was there to play golf. I'm not normally bothered by heights, but there were a few tee boxes that are so small and steep that I did feel a tinge of a panic attack coming on, so if that's something that might bother you, consider not going to the highest tees, even for just a view. I also found that it was disorienting at points due to the huge elevation changes.More than anything, enjoy the experience. I get quite a bit of tunnel vision on the course and lock in on targets, but I'm glad this was one I didn't worry too much about my score and took it all in. I'm never one for taking pictures on the course, but I didn't hesitate that day. As for advice -- what look like giant rock walls that will spit your ball out, are actually some sort of sand and if you hit in there, you're done. But more than anything, just enjoy it. Not sure how often you'll get to play a place like that, so don't get angry if it takes an hour to play the first 3 holes, don't question why there's a blind par 3 straight up a hill, and don't get too wrapped up in your score. I'm betting the first 5 things you'll remember a year later won't include how many over par you were.

Water and sand traps abound on this course, and there is not one hole that does not provide the golfer with a unique challenge. On two occasions you tee off from an elevated tee box and have to drive over a ridge to a fairway you can not see.You give it your best shot and hope . The other challenge is to stay on the course and not off in the desert.This course is a golfers dream.You can not find a better course layout anywhere. It does play slow though because of just getting around the terrain.

We arrived to Wolf Creek Golf Course in the heat of the day, getting the pre round speach from the starter, figured it was just another desert golf course. Then we get to the second tee, where there's two sets of stairs just to get to the middle tees...and guardrails so you don't fall off! Then its a dog-leg left through a chute of canyons with elevation changes are so severe, there are speed bumps on the cart paths. Gotta be the toughest course I've ever played, and it's visually intimidating since we're from Kansas. The fairways are narrow, and not much between you and the desert and rocks, but don't go looking for balls, there's hundreds in there, but there's also rattlesnakes. Tough course, make the trip, bring your game.
