Where2Golf says: 

Boulder Creek Golf Club: Located just eight miles from the Hoover Dam, on the other side of the Black Mountains from Las Vegas, Boulder Creek is home to three excellent nine-hole loops of desert-style championship golf. The Desert Hawk, Coyote Run and Eldorado nines make their separate ways out-and-back from the modern, comfortable clubhouse. Each has its own character, although the wonderfully natural and open desert environment is common to all three. Water hazards threaten more frequently on the Desert Hawk and Coyote Run nines. Unlike neighbouring Boulder City Municipal course, there is no real estate around the Boulder Creek layout, leaving you to enjoy its large expanses of tranquil pristine desert. From all three nines you are treated to wonderful views of the surrounding mountains and the impressively wide desert plain of the Eldorado valley. Oasis-themed holes feature palm trees, large beach bunkers, lakes and waterfalls. Arroyos (river beds) are artfully woven into the fabric of the course, often cutting through gently undulating fairways and guarding the front of several of the large and subtly sloping greens. Although a little further out than most of the Las Vegas courses, Boulder Creek is always a delight to play; at times challenging, at others easier-going, and always well-presented and immensely scenic.

Did you know?

Boulder City was originally built in 1932 by US Government (Bureau of Reclamation) as housing for workers who were building the Hoover Dam. Alcohol sales, membership in unions and all forms of gambling were prohibited in the city. Boulder City was relinquished by the Bureau and officially incorporated in 1960. The city charter, approved by the residents, prohibited gambling within the city limits. This provision still exists today, making Boulder City one of only two locations in Nevada where gambling is illegal. Alcohol sales were permitted in 1969.

The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.
