This year the Las Vegas World Amateur returns a mix of old and new courses. The first round will be played at Chimera Golf Club and the final two rounds will be played at both Lexington and Concord courses at Revere Golf Club.
Chimera Golf Club was designed in 2003 by Ted Robinson Jr. The layout boasts forgiving fairways and a playable desert landscape which provides a fair challenge from any set of tees. The natural terrain and unparalleled views of the Las Vegas Strip make Chimera Golf Club an incredible place to enjoy a round. Begin your day warming up on the driving range with unobstructed views of the Strip, Downtown Vegas, and snow-capped Mt. Charleston before hitting the course.
The Revere presents a blend of beauty and challenge unlike any other in southern Nevada. Draped through the rugged desert canyons and valleys of the Las Vegas foothills, The Revere Golf Club offers unending, awe-inspiring views of the Las Vegas Skyline and mountains beyond
The Las Vegas World Am is open to all golfers 18 years of age and older who have a certified USGA handicap or foreign equivalent. The event is now managed by Cascadia Events which has been running championship golf tournaments for the last 15 years.
