The Revere Golf Club, Lexington Course Overview: Like Jekyll to the Hyde-like Concord golf course at the Revere Golf Club, the Lexington golf course represents a very good desert Vegas golf course, with a resort feel to it. Many holes feel like traditional desert affairs, even though some are near and around houses or streets.
The best golf holes are described below:
The Revere Golf Club, Lexington Course Hole 2: This par five offers good views of the Las Vegas area from the tee and has a drive that can cut the corner of the dogleg right, but anything too far right will be in desert. The hole then winds its way down to the green with bunkers along the way.
The Revere Golf Club, Lexington Course Hole 3: This par four is long and tough with the hazard running right along the fairway and the green complex. There are also bunkers right along the way to trap the intimidated golfer.
The Revere Golf Club, Lexington Course Hole 7: The signature golf hole is prettier on the scorecard, before houses were built above the waterfall behind the green, but it is still a good hole. A strong drive will leave the player the option for going for the green in two, but the green is well protected and tough to hit and putt with huge tier in the middle.
The Revere Golf Club, Lexington Course Hole 10 (above and below): The golfer may be bewildered upon reaching the 10th tee and not seeing any fairway. It is totally blind from all but the forward tees but only requires an iron to reach the fairway. However, the green is really tiny, cut right behind a creek bed, so having a shorter iron is preferred.
The Revere Golf Club, Lexington Course Hole 11: This long par five has a desert area in the middle of the fairway, which can be cleared by some, but not all golfers. However, the desert left and right can be reached by an errant shot from the elevated tee as well. The second shot must then avoid another desert area that splits the fairway. Going left and long of it will yield the reward of a shorter and better angled approach to the very narrow green with large bunker right.
The Revere Golf Club, Lexington Course Hole 15: This short par four hole has a pot bunker in the middle of the fairway that must be avoided at all cost. The second shot will then need to cross the creek to the undulating and well-bunkered green.
