Played Revere-Lexington in Henderson for my first round of 2020 on Tuesday, January 7th. The course is about 25 minutes from my home (in Summerlin) and about 15 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip. I usually play Siena and Angel Park, which are both close to home (see my previous reviews) and hadn’t played Revere for a number of years.
We actually were booked to play Concord, the other course at Revere, but a morning shotgun tournament was running behind and we would have had to wait for groups to come through the first hole. So the starter let us know that Lexington was wide open and that we could tee off there whenever we were ready. So after hitting a few balls on the nice grass range we teed off on #1 at Lexington.
Lexington is the tougher of the two courses but was a lot of fun. Many of the holes feature elevated tees with big drops to the fairways below, which helped add a few extra yards to my usually short drives. There were quite a few forced carries over canyons and arroyos and while a little visually intimidating, most could be be handled with decent drives and approach shots.
The course was in terrific shape. There are multiple tee boxes for each tee position, which are rotated and allows the grass on each to heal. Fairways were lush with very few thin areas. The primary rough grass did provide challenges but offered a better chance to get your ball back into position than the adjacent desert and waste areas. Fairway bunkers had the typical desert-like dirt, while green side bunkers had softer sand. Greens were quick and rolled smoothly. And it seems golfers there (or the maintenance crew) do repair ball marks.
With the tourney on Concord, there weren’t many groups on Lexington, which made for a quick round for our high handicapper foursome. We finished in four hours, which included a 15-minute break after nine.
Service was excellent. The staff was very pleasant, including the marshals on the course who kept things moving. We were on pace, so we just got a smile and a wave… We saw the cart attendant twice on each nine and when we were done, the staff out front wiped down our clubs and offered to bring them to the bag drop. The clubhouse looked really nice but I had to head home for dinner and didn’t try the restaurant.
I’m looking forward to adding both Revere courses to my golf rotation.
