Silverstone Golf Course Las Vegas

Course description

** 3.5 Star Course ** Silverstone Golf Course Las Vegas was designed by Robert Cupp, Golf World's 1992 Architect of the Year, Silverstone Golf Club features 27 holes of championship golf just minutes from the Las Vegas strip. It is located north of Centennial and east of U.S. 95 near the old Floyd Lamb State Park with a spectacular view of the Sheep Mountain Range. Opening in June 2001, the courses feature three rotating championship style nines of bent grass on the greens and rye grass for the fairways and rough. Various water features and fresh landscaping make for a challenging and enjoyable experience.

There are six Par 5 holes that average 590 yards from the tips, with another 4 holes over 600 yards. The longest hole on this Las Vegas golf course is a 653 yard hole on the Mountain course with a large lake protecting the green. Each course will play 7,000 yards. All of the problems are in plain view of the player, with no hidden tricks. However, there is plenty of trouble for wayward shots and the greens that are small and undulated. If the wind is blowing, SilverStone vastly increases the degree of difficulty.

Michelle Wie Plans to Keep Trying

Michelle Wie's latest failed bid to prove she can compete against the men.

Everyone in the 84 Lumber Classic field that played two rounds beat Wie, the second week in a row that's happened for the 16-year-old against male competition.

She is scheduled to play against men twice more in the next four months, in the Casio World Open in November and the Sony Open in Hawaii, her fourth consecutive appearance there.

Callaway 2002 Big Bertha Irons - Review

If you love to play golf, and want to be the best you can be, I suggest that you at least try a set of these immediately,

Purchased a set of 2002 Big Bertha Irons at a Golf Equipment Outlet, and paid $699.00 for them. I tried them at the store, and could not believe the feel on the very first ball that I hit, incredible. A friend of my first hit a ball, and I only heard the contact, then asked him, what was that? He stated that it was a new Callaway Big Bertha 6 iron, and I could hardly wait to try it myself. Shortly afterwards, I was hitting the iron, and knew that I would have to have a set of these irons.

I have had my set for 2 months now, and I still have never hit irons that felt so pure. These irons have given me the confidence I have lacked for years in my iron play. I have found that the new 2002 Big Bertha irons are very forgiving, and as a added bonus, are very long (I have had to use one less club than normal). I am also very pleased with the new 50 degree gap wedge that comes with the set, as it fills a distance gap that I have had for a long time. Recommend everyone at least test hit these irons as soon as possible.

Pleased with the high quality, and construction of these irons.
