Client Course Description

Cascata is celebrated as one of the finest designs in the world. Only 30 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, the par-72 course provides stunning vistas at every turn, including the 3,600-foot peak at Red Mountain, lush fairways, lakes, and streams.

Designer Notes

This Las Vegas, Nevada course is awe-inspiring and breathtaking. The golf course design’s strategic approach is evident on every fairway. The lush green fairways, small lakes and cascading streams contrast sharply with the rugged desert backdrop. The terrain is constantly undulating and perfectly suited for the creation of unique golf holes. Because of the dramatic outcrops that form the holes, Cascata is often referred to as a desert links.
