Cascata Golf Club – Boulder City, Nevada

Cascata Golf Club - Boulder City, Nevada

Entering into Cascata Golf Club, 30 minutes away from the Vegas strip, one wouldn’t expect what was behind the main gate to get to the course.

‘Cascata, Italian for “waterfall,” is aptly named. A 418-foot waterfall from the steep mountainside towering above the driving range, meandering through the practice facilities, cascading into a river that roars through the clubhouse, eventually culminating in a tranquil stream. The air is pure, the silence beyond description. Welcome to Cascata.’

My parents, brother and his girlfriend were able to go out for 18 holes on December 30th 2012. For us New Yorkers, golfing in the snow was kind of unexpected but for 2 holes we played in it! Our hands and feet were numb, but the magic of the course was still there. The course was stunning and we were playing pretty well!

The course was a blast-especially when birdies are involved-oh, and some betting…I mean come on we were in Vegas!

The competition was heated, and thankfully Adam, our caddie read our putts perfectly. It was so cold that it made it pretty hard to pay close attention!

So yes, I would definitely go back to play Cascata if I ever make it back to Vegas. If you play in the winter, bring a hat and hand warmers and drink a lot of hot chocolate!

In the summer beware of the snakes 🙂
