Cascata Golf Course in Boulder City, NV welcomes players with private gates that open to a spectacular landscape that forms a regal backdrop for a golf experience like no other.
Cascata Golf Club offers stunning golf in a high-end, country-club-for-a-day setting. With green fees in the $500 range, you don’t have to worry about crowds at Cascata. No expense was spared in building this $60 million, high-roller retreat, carved from a rocky hillside.
The par-72, 7,137-yard course provides stunning vistas at every turn, including the 3,600-foot peak at Red Mountain, lush fairways, lakes, and streams. The Tuscan-style, 37,000-square-foot clubhouse offers an Old World ambiance of unpretentious luxury, where attentive staff members oblige your every need. Class A PGA professionals attend to equipment, fashion or instruction needs, and players are accompanied on-course by a Tour-class caddie.
Cascata, Italian for “waterfall,” is aptly named. A 418-foot waterfall flows from the steep mountainside, tumbling over mammoth boulders, cascading into a river that roars through the clubhouse, eventually culminating in a tranquil stream. It’s no wonder Sports Illustrated called Cascata Golf Course “golf’s hidden treasure.”
Cascata is considered one of the finest designs of architect Rees Jones. As the site of several celebrity events over the years, Cascata provides visitors with the red-carpet treatment from the time they arrive at its stately gates. Inside its grand, Tuscan-style clubhouse sits the bottom of the 418-foot waterfall that drops from above the golf course and practice facilities.

Ranked 53rd on Golf Digest’s 2013-14 Top 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses in America and 3rd in the state of Nevada.
14th – 434 Yard Par 4 – Tiger Woods was photographed standing on the water near the 14th green and was featured on the cover of Golf Digest; how appropriate for a guy that seems to be able to do anything. The 14th hole is a stunning downhill par four that features a creek cutting in front of the tee boxes and down the right side of the hole before pooling up in a pond 100 yards from the green and protecting the entire right side of the putting surface. Two bunkers protect the opposite side of the green which allows little room for error when making your approach shot at this beautiful signature hole.
Week days and Weekends: $295 – $500
