South Florida at it's Finest

I have been to Augusta National, Cypress Point, Laural Valley and now in Florida we have the same caliber of pampered care. It's name is The Fairmont Turnberry Isle. I had the opportunity to not only play this great course, but also to stay at this world class resort. From the moment of arrival to departure, I can truly say I have never been so spoiled. First let's talk accommodations, from the marble entryways to the custom bathrooms to the scenic views from every window and vantage point - this place exudes class and comfort. Second, the golf experience is second to none on the planet. With its tour-quality caddies and its unmatched manicured courses, it is sure to be a hit with even the most particular golfer. Lastly, the food was a culinary experience with the fork-tender steaks and the unrivaled attention to detail. This is the energizer of all resorts to recharge your battery.

Impressive Golf Course Water Conservation Measures

LAS VEGAS, Nevada – OB Sports Golf Management, management group for Angel Park and The Legacy Golf Clubs, recently completed an ambitious turf removal project designed to limit the amount of out-of-play turf on two of its Las Vegas Golf Clubs. Angel Park Golf Club is a 36-hole facility located in the Summerlin area of Las Vegas. Its Mountain Course and Palm Course were both designed by Arnold Palmer. The Legacy Golf Club, a true test of golf at 7,233 yards from the back tees, is conveniently located 10 minutes from McCarran International Airport. The 10th hole may be the most recognizable in Las Vegas with tee boxes in the shape of a spade, club, diamond and heart.

The project, conducted in conjunction with the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA), removed approximately 70 acres of turf at Angel Park alone, which translates into nearly a 28 percent reduction of turf overall at the 36-hole facility. Angel Park and The Legacy were built in the late 1980’s when water was less of a critical issue, both have always been extremely conscious with efficient irrigation practices. Now with Southern Nevada in a drought, replacing the turf with desert/xeriscape landscaping is the responsible thing to do. Roughly 33 acres of turf was removed from Angel Park’s 18-hole Mountain Course and nearly as much from the 18-hole golf course at The Legacy Golf Club.

The new Southwest Desert look has received rave reviews by the golfers, not only does it look great, but it will conserve a staggering 80 million gallons of water per year. We are impressed with this pro-active measure by Angel Park and Legacy Golf Clubs and encourage more golf clubs to do the same.
