Southern Highlands Golf Club, a luxurious desert oasis in Las Vegas, is a hallmark co-design by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and Robert Trent Jones, Jr. As co-host of the Invensys Classic, Southern Highlands contributes its opulent landscape, complete with panoramic views to the north of the city’s famous Strip, to this sumptuous PGA Tour event. The spectacular 42,000 square foot clubhouse, nestled at the base of the foothills, but with a commanding view of the course and its surrounding community, anchors a pair of returning nines.

Southern Highlands  Design and Setting

This private golf course golf course descends into canyons created by the design's aggressive grading plan—providing a sense of separation from the development's housing, which is located on ridges above this challenging golf course. The golf holes also carefully integrate views of the site's dramatic mountain backdrops, allowing players to enjoy their sojourns in this serene setting.

Championship Course Features

The centerpiece of a 2,300-acre master-planned community, Southern Highlands Golf Club’s championship course plays to a generous 7,380 yards, a length dictated in part by the site’s elevation and desert setting, where the ball travels farther than at sea level. A series of strategically placed lakes and waterfalls provide counterpoint to Southern Highlands’ extensive tree planting plan, which lends a parkland feel to the course and a dramatic contrast to the brown and red hills in the distance. The water features at Southern Highlands give the course a unique feel to traditional desert-style golf courses.

Commitment to Tradition

Gary Goett, the president of Southern Highlands, declared from the project’s origin that he and his staff were “totally committed, in every regard, to upholding the time-honored traditions of golf,” and the course designed by Robert Trent Jones II confirms that commitment. Elegant and timeless, Southern Highlands’ design reflects the matchless experience of its creators.
