Mesquite, NV - Where to stay and play?

Title says it all. Any input is much appreciated.
Answers:
Google golfmesquite, some great deals to be had there. I booked a package a few years ago for 2 people, 4 nights, 4 rounds including Wolf Creek for $800.
Answers:
Virgin River is cheap, but you get what you pay for! Eureka had pretty nice rooms. Casablanca is not as nice, Oasis is still closed. Might try the courses direct also. Newest course is Conestoga, I haven't even seen it yet.
Answers:
I've done that trip four (4) times...every time in May when the rates go down, and temperatures not too hot.
Stay - If you're going strictly for the golf, Casablanca is more than adequate. Awesome pool/hot tub, and access to massages after those 54 hole days. We did guy trips with 8 golfers, and not one complaint on the rooms.
Play - In Mesquite, Wolf Creek is a must play. Safe to say it will be one of the must visually stunning courses you will ever play. Its like someone picked you up and placed you on a golf planet. After Wolf Creek, I would rank them in this order...Falcon Ridge, Oasis, Casablanca and then Palms. I have not played or heard on the new course.
Suggest - I think most golfers would agree, after Wolf Creek, the best golf is in St. George, about 1 hour north. Ledges, Coral Canyon, and Sunbrook are all top shelf, and worth the drive.
Hope this helps

Wolf Creek......nuff said!!!!
Answers:
If you go to St George, the must play there is Sand Hollow.

I played Conestoga earlier this month and it is very good. For only being open 3.5 months I was thoroughly impressed. Can't wait to go back and play it in a few years when it matures a bit. The Oasis is top notch as well, don't go to Wolf Creek and expect to score.

If you just play Wolf Creek "by the book", it's not that tough. The hard part about Wolf Creek is that it's visually intimidating and deceiving. You need to bring a skycaddie or bushnell, no in cart GPS. The fairways are generally wide, and the greens receptive. It's too bad a couple of the back tees (ie 18) washed out. Don't get me wrong, there are holes like #8 that can eat your lunch, but if you are striking the ball well, and focus on the shot ahead instead of the scenery, you'll do fine.

Wolf Creek is a must play. It is awesome. I was just there a few weeks ago. Even though they don't have cart GPS, they give out complementary yardage books.

I will just agree to the above and add my 2 cents. I have made the St George/Mesquite treq now 3 years running and it is well worth it. Wolf Creek is a must and the Palmer course is my second favorite but after that head north to St George the course I would definitely add to the above is Sand Hollow (Hurricane) it's back nine is almost as visually stunning as the Wolf and when the wind is up which it tends to be it is a tough course. I don't think it takes an hour to get to St George from Mesquite I would have said half that long but I could be wrong (when I am there I am just happy to be out of the cold so time is relative)
Answers:
I like to stay Eureka because the rooms are not in the casino. don't get me wrong I like to gamble, but if I am just going to the room I don't like to have to walk through the smoke infested casino. Falcon Ridge Hotel also looks nice but I have never stayed there. IMO all the rooms are about the same except for the Virgin River, which are cheaper, but, well, cheaper. Play Wolf Creek and FAlcon Ridge in Mesquite. I hear Conestego is nice but I have not played it. Sand Hollow is only about 40 miles north and worth the trip. If you contact any of the casinos there they can usually set you up with some sort of stay and play package. Weather is getting good right now and should be great for the next couple of months before the heat really sets in.
Answers:
Go for Wolf Creek.. and always try to tee off early in the am... because the wind can really, really kick up in the afternoon. Cheers !
Answers:
As others I think have said.. Tee off early if you can !! The wind picks up pretty heavily around early afternoon !! Creek is tough.. Its a must play when visiting !!

Great recommendations!
We have a trip tentatively scheduled in August and I think we're going to take your advice on Casablanca. It's cheap, but looks decent enough.
We're looking to play two rounds at Wolf Creek and two others yet to be decided. Of the handful of area courses, are there any with a unlimited replay rate or anything? We'll have about four days of golf available, but I was kinda hoping to play more than just 18 a day.

i just came back from mesquite last week. i stayed in the casablanca resort and played falcon ridge and conestoga. in vegas i played primm valley and angel park. it was an amazing 4 day trip and will go back next year for sure!
i booked my courses at golfnow.com and saved some big bucks. i played falcon ridge for $55 and primm valley for $45. primm valley regular rate is around $150. i suggest you look into golfnow too.
YOU MUST PLAY CONESTOGA. it is an amazing course with an incredible practice facility. i cannot stress this enough. YOU MUST PLAY CONESTOGA. each hole could be a post card picture. it is a little pricey at $100 but you can stay at the immaculate range all morning before your round. the canyon views are stunning and the course is in pga tournament condition. i had a blast there and it was the best course i played on my trip (and perhaps ever). my avatar pic is from the par 3 #14.
others say that wolf creek is amazing too but that is very pricey and plays similar to its little brother, falcon ridge (i.e. drastic elevation changes). i assume you would have a great time at both of those courses.
when we played falcon ridge there was a wind warning (50 mph gusts) so i didn't enjoy my round as much as i should have. i have never played in weather that extreme before but i had to as i was on vacation. the course is in decent shape but the rough and some parts of the fairway are burnt out. greens are in good shape though. i would definitely try it again in calmer conditions.
p.s if you are staying at casablanca, kathrine's steak house is pretty good!

Thanks for the heads up man. I had Conestoga penciled in, but wasn't sold on it yet.
Do you have any pictures?
Answers:
I was up there last year along with 23 of my other golfing buddies. We stood at the Casablanca Hotel decent rooms. Steakhouse there is also pretty good, as mentioned the pool is lively and the jucuzzi is tiny. We played Casablanca, Falcon Ridge and then Wolf Creek. Wolf Creek is a most but you should consider playing there last because all the other courses will feel like a let down in comparrision. You'll love Wolf Creek.

Wolf Creek plays nothing like Falcon Ridge. I am looking forward to playing out there again next month... Wolf Creek, Conostoga, Sand Hallow, Coral Canyon + 1 more on the agenda...
Good stuff.

Here are some pics I took at Wolf Creek a couple weeks back. Very fair but tough and beautiful.

We enjoyed Ledges better than Coral Canyon. CC staff weren't very friendly and one of their rangers was annoying as he could be. Ledges back 9 is very enjoyable and the staff was great. Snow Canyon at Entrada is a good course but you need to stay there to play, one of the nicest places we have ever stayed, the back 9 has a lot of lava fields for rough.
Answers:
I know I asked this earlier and thought it might have been overlooked, but...
Do any of the area courses have an unlimited replay rate or anything?
I just figured I'd ask here before I popped off emails to every course in Mesquite
Answers:
Enough with the "Wolf Creek is a must". Its not a must for a less the great golfer. If you are an average to below average player, stick with Palmer or Falcon Ridge. My parents live on Conestoga and it's beautiful. I'm not saying avoid Wolf Creek, but realize going in that its difficult and in the afternoon the wind howls out there.

I'm glad someone else feels this way. I've played it twice, and outside of it being photogenic, it's not really much fun to play. You spend half the round guessing what club you should hit, and forget about enjoying an afternoon round if the wind even thinks about blowing.
It's fun to play once for the novelty factor, but if you want to just play golf, there are better options out there.
Just for the purpose of playing, the back nine at the Palms is great fun.
Answers:
I agree, I play Wolf creek once a year, but I don't keep score and I play it for fun, sorry to offend all of you sticklers about the rules out there. It is a visually awesome course and it is fun to play, at least for me, if I don't get wound up about my score. I played four courses in Mesquite this weekend, Palmer, Wolf Creek, Falcon Ridge, and Conestoga. I shot three rounds in the 80's and had I kept a "real" score at Wolf creek I may have had a 120 or so, but so what, I had a great time and I knew going in I wasn't worried about my score there so I had fun and didn't let a highs score ruin my week end. The thing about Wofl Creek is, is that if you haven't played it, you should, just to say you have. It really is a cool course, IMO.
