Over the past quarter century or so, Mesquite, Nev., located 77 miles North of Las Vegas, has become a true golf destination. The area hosts world class tournaments and also provides terrific Mesquite golf packages. Golf can be the main reason you visit or it can be just part of the overall experience if you travel for other reasons such as the Balloon Festival, Motor Mania or just sightseeing around the area. –By Brian Hurlburt, founder, LasVegasGolfInsider.com
Annual golf tournaments include the Mesquite Amateur, Mesquite II Man events, the Nevada Open, and several other smaller events annually hosted by Mesquite Gaming and the CasaBlanca Resort. Mesquite is located within close proximity to Zion National Park, Brian Head Ski Resort and other sightseeing locales in addition to world class off road trails just minutes from Mesquite resorts.

“There’s so much here to Mesquite, and it’s a wonderful destination,” says Brian Wursten, director of golf, Mesquite Gaming. “There are just so many options available. You’re not too far from the Grand Canyon, a wonder of the world, and I don’t know that there’s a place that you’ll be as close to as many national parks as Mesquite. You know, and the Grand Canyons, the wonder of the world. The parks in Utah are just incredible. Also, I’ve been up to Brian Head to ski and then come back down and played golf in the same day. Mesquite is an experience like none other because of the fact that you have so many different Mesquite golf courses. and you have great casino like Casablanca. You can play gamble, you can play golf, you can sight see, you can off road, and you can come to many of our great festivals. I am probably biased because I live here and love it here, but it’s just the greatest destination world as far as I’m concerned.”
