In 2005 Phoenix based golf course architect David Druzisky was commissioned to create an additional 9 holes for the original Arnold Palmer designed 9 hole Vista’s course crafted in 1994 along with the Palmer Course, but was all but forgotten about. The existing Vista’s 9 was routed on similar land as the Palmer course, so it was pretty good, but it was so heavily disconnected from the clubhouse and the main facilities by about a quarter of a mile it was a more of an oddity than a popular golf course.
“The desert has been eroding for million of years, and the craggy, desert canyons of Mesquite provided a wonderful canvas to create some very, very interesting golf holes.”
When Mr. Druzisky first saw the land he had to work with he was quite excited with what he could create. “The desert has been eroding for million of years, and the craggy, desert canyons of Mesquite provided a wonderful canvas to create some very interesting golf holes.” says Druzisky. “The new holes combine with the old holes to create a fun, challenging, and scenic golf course with a mix of different looks holes and wildly different shots.”
Recently, the nines have been flipped to create a much better flow to the course, and allows golfers to be back near the clubhouse for refreshments after the ninth green. The change has been well received, and was a good move for the flow of the course.
