Charleston Golf Cart Path - 9/3/11
Mt. Charleston Alpine Resort Golf Club
Resort, $45.00 - $55.00
This well-maintained course was built in beautiful Kyle Canyon at the base of Mt Charleston. This course offers spectacular scenic views of the surrounding mountains and Cathedral Rock, and the weather is outstanding. The greens are average-sized, fast and very undulating, while the fairways are average width and hilly. Water hazards come into play on one hole, and dogleg fairways on two others. The signature hole is #5, a 470-yard, par 4, requiring a well-struck tee shot down a long fairway, then a well-placed approach shot over two lakes with waterfalls.
