55 Things to do #42: Get ready for Victory’s entirely new approach to golf by Tom Lehman

Related Categories: 55 Things To Do | News | On The Road to Victory

Just because we take golf seriously doesn’t mean it can’t be a boat load of fun, and that’s exactly the approach to Victory at Verrado’s all new golf course, driving range and golf playground.

Designed by PGA Legend Tom Lehman, winner of the 1996 US Open Championship and multi-time PGA Player of the Year, the course planned at Victory will provide a fun and challenging experience for golfers of all levels. Various tee box locations, wider fairways, reduced rough and more opportunities for recovery appeal to the casual player, while fast, undulating greens, unexpected pin positions and plenty of risk/reward opportunities will provide a challenge for the best of us.

Of course, we can’t forget to mention that just like Verrado’s Golf Course, the course at Victory will be one of the most unique in the Valley thanks to the diverse topography provided by the White Tank Mountains.

The Victory Golf Playground

The Victory Golf Playground Sketch GraphicPerhaps more importantly, the course at Victory is designed to provide you with opportunities to play no matter what your time constraints. For those a bit short on time (or patience), we’ve designed various “loops” that allow you to play just five, six, nine, or 12 holes at a time. For the purists, you’ll still enjoy playing 18 on the full par 72 course (or even 36 if you toss in a round at The Verrado Golf Course).

To amp up the fun factor even more, Victory is proud to introduce the all-new “golf playground.” Accessible right from The Big Patio, this is the perfect place to hone your skills and challenge friends while practicing pitching, putting, short drives, and difficult lies. You can even string together a few short holes, play a one-club tournament or some HORSE to figure out who’s really the best. All while enjoying a cocktail, of course.

But enough of us telling you about all of the fun you’ll have with golf at Victory, we’ll leave it to the pro. Watch this week’s On The Road to Victory video as Tom Lehman and Todd Hornback explain exactly what makes golf at Victory so spectacular. You can read more about Golf at Victory here.
