Mesquite, Nevada, is not one of those locations that jump readily to mind when planning a golf vacation, but maybe it should be. I am a great fan of desert golf. There's something about those great green ribbons of fairway set amid golden sands punctuated with tall cacti and verdant greens. In Mesquite, they say that "memorable golf vacations require a few undeniable essential elements. Golf Mesquite Nevada has captured all of the essential golf vacation amenities and packaged them into a simple process for guests to customize their perfect golf getaway.

They do say that "A golf getaway, regardless of duration, starts with a visit to the Golf Mesquite Nevada website." The said website (see below) offers golfers the opportunity to choose/mix-and-match from the nine championship golf courses and four luxurious resorts that make up the Golf Mesquite Nevada partnership. The courses are spectacular, the casinos action-packed, as one would expect, with live entertainment, a whole gamut of dining options, world-class spas and salons, along with "all the resort amenities required to complete the dream vacation."

Mesquite is located some 80 miles north of Las Vegas in the Virgin River Valley, and is considered, locally at least, to be the hub of the fastest growing golf destination in the West. If you're a golfer, you can play championship golf courses designed by Palmer, Nicklaus, Panks and Fought. Yes, I do believe that Mesquite, though it's a really small community (about 20,000 population), you'll agree that it will make a great venue for a golf getaway of vacation.

And, talking of Las Vegas, you might like to check out my more than 25 listings of golf courses in Las Vegas.
