I did and thanks to Christian and his staff for the win. The prize was a wonderful round for two at one of the best courses you can play in the Mesquite area … The Chase at Coyote Springs.
Actually, there is not a bad course in Mesquite, but Coyote is in a class of it’s own.
Just Wondering Who Won?
I like #13 on Falcon Ridge. You need a great tee on the upper level so it rolls down to the smaal flat area and a couraeous second over the water and hope it stays on the green and doest roll off the back. A very difficult shot.
Kerry, that is great! I will try that, lol.
You know the green is just a 5 iron from the front of the ladies tee box. Found out do to a line drive to a rock and the ball bounced back to this point. So #11 is just a pitch shot and a 5 iron. Take your short shot first.
#11 at Falcon Ridge, because of the placement tee shot to a blind fairway over the hill with water and a canyon left with the other canyon right if you overclub on the drive, the huge three tiered green (47 yards long)and the great view of the entire Mesquite Valley from one of the highest points on the golf course.
The Palms number 17 – keep it dry off the Tee.
No one yet. There is no cut off date. So will Probably Monday Night announcement.
Sooooo who won???
# 18 at Falcon Ridge is a very tough up hill ,to a well trapped elevated green.
The best part is you are finally through playing a very tough golf course.
#1 at Oasis Canyons. Have to drive it in the fairway. It’s visually deceiving with the bunkers. A good challenge to start…
Definitely Falcon Ridge #10. This was my first Mesquite Amateur hole played several years ago. No practice rounds. Normally play small links county courses. Yikes. Asked myself “what am I doing here”. Need I say more. I keep coming back every year and now on #10 I say to myself “now I know why I am here”.
The elevated tee, the long approach over water on the second shot, or the opportunity to play the short cut over the mountains on the left, make #6 at Oasis-Canyons my favorite par 4. I did make it over the mountain and keep on the fairway one time.
Palms #12 for me!
I have to agree with Falcon Ridge #13. I have nightmares about that hole and when I play it my second shot scares the heck out of me.
Well, I’m gonna have to go with the #12 @ Palms. It’s 219 uphill for me. I plan to be on in 2 and 2 putt for a par. (In my dreams!! 🙂
Hole number 10 at Falcon Ridge with an elevated tee shot and the stream splitting the fairway in two is a rather demanding par 4. It forces you to make a decision as to which side you want to play from with your next shot. Or Aim it straight at the creek and hope your swing or the wind takes it to a happy place. If you found it one of the fairways, now it’s a guessing game for your next shot at the green as it’s a pretty severe uphill shot. The hole seems to get very narrow as you contemplate the OB on the right. A shot a little left of the green may catch a break with a good bounce toward the green. If you get above the hole like I have the last few times I played it, you might end up with a 90 degree turn in your downhill putt. It’s a knee knocker.
I believe #13 @ Falcon Ridge will be my favorite for a while also. First hole of my Mesquite adventures. Made a bogie and it felt like a bird. I don’t remember ever being more nervous than making that first drive. Can’t wait to see it again.
Water also in front Marck.
Ok, gang here is my favorite par 4, maybe someday I will previal… Hole #13 at Falcon, what a tough one to play, blind uphill par 4 to a lowered green with water left and OB Right and behind the green….Killer hole design!
# 18 at Oasis Palmer. water and more water.
Hole 18 at Coyote Springs
Number 3 at the Palmer probably one of the toughest par 4’s in the valley!
My favorite is any par 4 that I do not go out of bounds on!!!!
# 12 at Falcon Ridge. Killer par 5 from an elevated tee to a landing area short of the lake , then a shot over the lake to the fairway , and finally an apraoch over the lake to the green. Do you see a problem here? THis hole has been my nemesis for 3 straight years…….this year I’m ready!!!!!
Number 17 at the Palms. Got to think smart when playing this one and keep your drive short of the water!
Hole #14 at the chase is one of my favorites. What a tough, risk reward hole with a nasty tough green waiting for you.
#5 at Casablanca recently got a whole lot easier!!
I agree Number 18 on Oasis Palmer is a good risk/reward hole. Number on on Oasis Canyons takes a well placed first shot.
Gotta go with Oasis Palmer 18. Last day of tourney and needing a good score to play Friday, come to 18 with a chance to break par (net score). Smash 200 yard drive down left side and nail an 8 iron to 3 feet, YES!!!! my only birdie of the 3 days. Playing on Friday!!!
My favorite Par 4 has got to be No. 6 on Falcon Ridge, I can visualize a nice drive of about 240 yards from the elevated tee, approx 100 ft above my landing area in the fairway (My normal drive is 170 yds. but I factored in some extra for thinner, drier air and elevation drop from tee to fairway.)
O.K, so I hit a nice second shot which lands about ten yards short and rolls up on the green and stops inches short of an Eagle.
I determine that the six inch put has no break, so I ram it in the back of the cup for a birdie.
You just gotta love a hole like that.
the 10th and 11th holes at falcon ridge. on 10 if you can avoid the water or out of bounds you still have an up hill second shot to a multi tiered green. the 11th offers a great risk reward opportunity, take it over the gorge or layup to a blind landing area.
There are so many good Par 4’s, it is hard to select. Number 1 at the Palms, having to put your first shot of the day over those palm trees. Number 1 at the Oasis-Canyons, needing to stay to the right, but not to far right, so you avoid the water left. Number 1 at Oasis-Palmer, knowing the best position to hit to is just beyond or just right of the bunker on the left side of the fairway. Casa Blanca has so many with water to the right, not good for my SLICE. But I will always try to defeat them. But you know, number 10 at Falcon Ridge has got to be the one. It beats me up each time. But I will PREVAIL, sometime. Not sure when though.
