Only a few miles from the aforementioned Brasada Canyons, lies Pronghorn Resort. The facility features two courses, designed by Tom Fazio and Jack Nicklaus, respectively. While the Fazio Course is fully private, the Pronghorn Nicklaus Signature Course is open to resort guests and the public.
Whether you’ve played Nicklaus courses in the past or not, this track won’t disappoint. Built into the natural topography of lava rock and Juniper scrub, the course appears narrower in many spots than it actually is.
If it’s your first time playing, we highly recommend taking a caddie to help you pick out sight lines and read greens. There’s a ton of local knowledge to be garnered and the extra few bucks for a seasoned looper is worth every penny.
The greens at the Pronghorn Nicklaus Signature Course are some of the fastest in the area. Before you peg it on the first tee, make sure to spend some time on the world-class practice putting green to dial in your speed.
If you’re looking for a great place to stay on an extended golf vacation, Pronghorn Resort’s amenities are world class.
