Detailed description

Spanish Trail Golf and Country Club's 27-holes of golf was designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. This facility consists of three(3) 9-hole courses that can be combined to play in 3 different 18 hole combinations. The course first opened for play in 1984.

Spanish Trails has been home to the PGA Tour's Las Vegas Invitational. The course sits amongst undulating hills with tree-lined fairways, over 120 bunkers, and fifteen lakes bearing streams and waterfalls. Having 27 holes enables a great variety of play to meet anyone's game challenge.

The 9 hole courses are The Canyon Course, The Lakes Course, and The Sunrise Course.

The Canyon Course is the longest and most challenging course at Spanish Trail Country Club, measuring 3,576 yards from the championship tees. With its recent desert landscaping completed in 2004, it has taken on the beautiful look of a desert-style golf course combined with a classic Robert Trent Jones, Jr. design. The Canyon Course has two beautiful par threes, including the second hole which has a lake and waterfall located next to the green. The finishing stretch of numbers 7, 8 & 9 will test even the best golfers. Number seven is a 215-yard par-three framed by bunkers and desert landscaping; par is a very good score. The eighth hole is a 567-yard par-five which plays much longer than the actual yardage, as water protects the green and comes into play on an errant second shot. The ninth hole measures 421 yards and has an elevated green protected by deep bunkers.

The Lakes Course is appropriately named as water comes into play on six of the nine holes. There are forced carries over water on several holes and the greensides are guarded by water on five of the six holes. One of the prettiest par-five holes in Southern Nevada is Lakes #2, a 601-yard challenge from the championship tee with a water-protected green located next to a beautiful waterfall. The scenic number three is their signature par three hole. It measures 180 yards from the championship tee and requires a carry over two lakes. Again, like all Robert Trent Jones, Jr. designs, there is a premium on your approach shots because of the fast and undulating greens.

The Sunrise Course measures a total of 3,426 yards from the championship tees and boasts Spanish Trails signature hole, the 9th Hole waterfall located next to the clubhouse. The Sunrise Course has large undulating greens with rolling fairways. The approach shots on the Sunrise course are critical because the potential hole locations can be treacherous if the ball is on the wrong side of the hole. The Sunrise Course also has one of the PGA Tour's most challenging par three holes. The fifth hole was ranked as one of the toughest holes on the PGA Tour when Spanish Trail Golf and Country Club hosted the Las Vegas Invitational in the late 1980s.

Golf amenities include a driving range, a short game practice area, and two practice greens. All practice areas operate on an open-hitting policy and available to all tournament participants.
