Cal Olson designed the back nine, and the Nicklaus Design team orchestrated the front side. Combine the two nines and you've got a stunning golf course. Both nines feature gently undulating fairways and moderate to severely sloped greens; and both are built in more of a traditional style, demanding no forced carries off the tees as grass runs from tee to green. The back nine is accented by Mondale pines and glittering poplar trees. The front nine, which opened in December 2003, also includes attractive landscaping. Mountain Falls stretches to 7,082 yards from its back set of four tee boxes, and from every set there's plenty of variety for players. From the back tees, two of the par 3's play 200 and 207 yards to well-guarded greens, so when the wind blows across the plains, there's also plenty of challenge. 775-537-6553 www.mountain 5001 Fox Ave., Pahrump, Nv.

The new 7,305-yard track was crafted by Palmer Course Design. The Classic Club at NorthStar was crafted to allow spectators clear vistas of the course, with plateaus allowing fans to see from one hole to the next. The course also features elevation changes, waterfalls, rock streams, numerous stone bridges, and more than 4,800 pine and California pepper trees.According to Martz, the trees were planted to create a forested feel in a desert surrounded by mountain ranges. With 30 acres of lakes, water enters play on 13 holes. The shortest hole on the course, the par-3 12th, contains one of those watery graves. The 162-yard hole requires players to display accuracy, as a large lake, waterfalls and a wrap-around bunker define the green. On this hole, Palmer Course Design's chairman, Arnold Palmer, personally provided the design criteria and on-site review from concept to completion. A Troon Golf Management Phone: 760-601-3600
