Mesquite Nevada A Golf Oasis I Must Play Soon

As any Canadian golfer knows, we have lots of time during the winter to dream of sunny golf destinations. Booming a long drive out into a lush fairway take over our thoughts during most of those dreary days of winter. One such place you may drift to might be the Mesquite area of Nevada. I recently contacted Cody Law the Executive Director of Golf Mesquite Nevada  through LinkedIn and asked a few questions through email about Mesquite as a golfing destinations for those of us just dying to get out and hit a ball.

Q&A with Cody Law from Mesquite Golf Nevada

Q: Mesquite Nevada was just recently named by Golf Digest as one of the top places (#19) to go for a buddies golf trip. What makes the area good for a golf buddy trip?

Cody: The thing that sets Mesquite apart from any other golf destinations is the proximity of our courses to our hotels. We have seven championship golf courses within 5 minutes of any of our hotels in Mesquite. The other thing that sets us apart is our pricing. We are a value destination, but the experience the golfer has compares with some of the top golf destinations in the world.

Q:What’s unique about the golf courses in the Mesquite area? What can golfers expect for their first Mesquite/desert golf experience?

Cody:  Each of our golf courses are unique in their own way. Some of them tote names from world class designers and others were designed by locals. Each one is a true desert golf course that will test all aspects of the game. All of the courses have stunning views that require you to bring your camera.

Q:When’s the best time to golf in Mesquite and why?

Cody: We have two prime seasons: Oct-Nov and Feb-May. That's the most popular time of year to visit because the weather usually stays around 70.

Q:What makes Mesquite Golf Nevada different from other companies that offer the same kind of stay and play packages?

Cody: GolfMesquiteNevada.com is owned by the golf courses who we sell tee-times for. Because of that, we offer the lowest stay and play packages in Mesquite. That's our guarantee.

Q:How were the courses/resorts picked for the various packages offered at Mesquite Golf Nevada?

Cody: Golf Mesquite Nevada is the marketing co-op for the destination. The partners who pay into the co-op are the hotels and courses who are picked for the packages we offer.

Q: What’s your favorite golf hole in the Mesquite area and why?

Cody: Depends on the day and how well I'm playing. Every course has a specific hole that I like. Usually it's the most blind hole on the course that requires some shot management.
