Like everything else in Nevada, the town of Mesquite is overshadowed by Las Vegas, located 80 miles to its southwest. But among golfers, Mesquite has earned a reputation as an emerging golf destination with a solid, and sometimes spectacular, collection of courses.

Mesquite’s lineup of courses was bolstered this month by the opening of Conestoga Golf Club, a Gary Panks design. The course is located within the Del Webb community of Sun City Mesquite.

Much of the landscape at Conestoga is dominated by dramatic, rocky landforms that might remind players of Wolf Creek Golf Club, another Mesquite layout that is ranked No. 3 on the list of Golfweek’s Best Courses You Can Play in Nevada.

Troon Golf is managing the property, with Claire Varney serving as general manager.
