The Club at Sunrise


Most true Las Vegas golfers have an affinity for the Club at Sunrise, even if those deep feelings date back to the glory days of the old Desert Rose Golf Club and even before that to the days of Winterwood Golf Club.

Locals over the age of 30 or so probably grew up playing some of their golf at Desert Rose and the annual and prestigious Clark County Amateur was played at Desert Rose for many years. In 2016, the transition from Desert Rose to the Club at Sunrise was complete following a several-year process.

Now golfers are back playing the completely renovated course and enjoying the new look and feel of the holes, while still feeling some of the Desert Rose mystique. The old feel includes many of the original pine trees, but there is a new clubhouse and many of the holes are completely different. Plus, the old 6-foot flood culvert, a true course landmark that ran down the middle of the course between fairways, is now a massive, winding, grass-banked flood channel. About 350,000 cubic yards of dirt was removed to create the channel.

The course has continued to offer locals with some of the best rates and values available in Southern Nevada. Specials are available on the website and the course offers leagues, tournaments and other events for locals. Also, on site is the Winterwood Bar and Grille, which has become a favorite for Club at Sunrise and surrounding residents.

The Club at Sunrise also offers annual memberships that include reduced green fees, discounts in the pro shop and bar and grill, and other benefits. A USGA handicap is part of the membership. The Club at Sunrise is owned by Clark County and was created as part of the overall Las Vegas Wash Project, a multi-million- dollar project designed to divert flood waters while rejuvenating the course. Club at Sunrise is managed by KemperSports.

The course originally opened as Winterwood in 1964 and locals of every level played there and some of the top amateur tournaments were decided on the course. Current and PGA Tour player Craig Barlow and 1990 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year Robert Gamez each won the Clark County Amateur at what was then Desert Rose. Superintendent Scott Sutton was named the 2017 Superintendent of the Year by the Southern Nevada Golf Course Superintendents Association and is one of those Southern Nevada golfers who has been playing the course for many years.

“I grew up on this course and then worked here early in my career. I really got to see what this course was all about and I am honored to be one of the people who was responsible for bringing it back. To come full circle is pretty special and I take a lot of pride in turning it into a jewel of a municipal course.” – Sutton
