Sunrise Mountain, on the eastern reaches of the Las Vegas Valley, is the backdrop for a great golfing venue, Stallion Mountain Golf Club. This great Par 72, 7,120 yard layout offers golfers at every level a unique golfing opportunity while walking the fairways that even the world’s best players have crossed. Stallion offers a beautiful, exclusive and varied golf escape in a wonderful southwestern theme.
The Club was originally a 54-hole facility named Sunrise Golf Club when it opened in 1991. Several years later, the owners decided that the land was worth more to the housing market of the early 2000’s boom and reduced the course to what they considered their best 18 holes of golf. The recession that hit the country in 2008 sent the Golf Club spiraling, but the new owners have now resurrected the once great facility and brought it back to life.
The original design of Stallion Mountain was done by Jim Colbert and Jeff Brauer, as Lee Schmidt and Brian Curley modified it into one course in 2004, adding tiered fairways, dramatic green complexes and plenty of deep bunkers and water hazards. Accuracy and length off the tee are necessary skills if you want to score well at Stallion Mountain and the greens can prove tricky for those lacking a solid short game. Four tee options are available, allowing players a nice amount of options when it comes to catering the course to their skill level.
Stallion Mountain has a decorated history in the Las Vegas golf scene as a host venue for Golf Channel’s Big Break II and also past host of the Frank Sinatra Celebrity Classic and the PGA Tour’s Las Vegas event (at the time known as the Panasonic Las Vegas Invitational). Also, it is the home of PGA Tour Professional Chip Beck’s well known round of 59 during the third round of the 1991 Las Vegas Invitational. In those years, the tournament was five rounds. Beck shot a 13-under par round which consisted of 5 pars, 13 birdies and no bogeys. Beck received a $1 million bonus for his feat.
