From www.lasvegasgolf.com:
CasaBlanca Golf Club in Mesquite, Nevada – with its lush green fairways accented by vibrant wild flowers and blue, sparkling lakes – is a desert flower of a golf course. Designed by Cal Olsen, CasaBlanca, part of a hotel/casino/spa resort, is a 7,036-yard, par-72 golf course that plays a lot longer than it seems. (In keeping with its casino roots, CasaBlanca’s tees are not color-coded like at other course but, rather, are divided by card suits – spades, clubs, diamonds, etc.)

The CasaBlanca golf course’s three par 5s are particularly tricky, the first of which comes right out of the gate at No. 2. The hole plays straight until you get to the green, where water and beach bunkers await. You know you are in trouble with the golf course’s official guide states, “This second hole should be played conservatively to set up a positive attitude for the golfer to challenge the rest of the course.”

From www.mesquitegolfcourses.com:
The Cal Olsen designed CasaBlanca Golf Club is an enjoyable test of desert lowlands golf. The golf course will keep your interest going with a fun mix of holes that wind through wetlands of the Virgin River, highlighted by 5 holes featuring two massive lakes and a waterfall that look more like courses in Florida, than in the barren desert of Mesquite, Nevada. These five holes will make or break your round, as the lakes add  intimidation factors to approach shots into the well bunkered greens.
CasaBlanca Golf Course offers a good test of golf on the back tees, while conversely allowing a less skilled player to have plenty of room off the tee to miss  a shot and still have and enjoyable round of golf.

Wide fairways, not many forced carries, and interesting bunker complexes combine for a solid golf course which accommodates a wide range of players to enjoy.
