Black Mountain Golf & Country Club, is a Semi-Private, 27 hole golf course located in Henderson, Nevada.
Black Mountain is a 27-hole golf facility. The facility has three 9-hole golf courses. They are: The Founders 9, Horizon 9, and Desert 9.
The Founders 9 was opened in 1957, followed by The Horizon in 1963. Both were designed by Bob E. Baldock. The newest is The Desert nine opened in 2002 and was designed by George Williams.
The Founders and The Horizon nines are fairly straightaway with impressive bunkering and trees that can provide an additional challenge.
The Desert nine has narrow landing areas, strategically placed bunkers and some target-style tee requirements.
Black Mountain Golf & Country Club's original 18 holes team up to form a 6,579-yard layout (from the tips) that can provide great scoring opportunities.
Both par 5s on the Founder's nine are reachable in two (the fourth plays 502 yards while the ninth plays just 460 yards). While the tee shots are wide open, the second shots are into greens that are well protected.
On the Horizon nine, both par 5s stretch to more than 500 yards, but on this nine the trees provide an added factor when deciding on your plan of attack. Overhanging limbs can cause players to have to lay up and water on the 4th adds to the challenge.
The Desert nine is just that, a desert design. From start to finish, players will face tough choices on the tee. There are no fewer than four tee shots that require players to gain yardages to corners, bunkers, waste areas or other danger spots before pulling the trigger.

Feels like a poorly maintained MUNI in design and course conditions. Staff is very friendly. Greens are fair, bunkers often not raked by some players.

Any cons are not worth mentioning due to the best staff in the Valley.

This was a free Birthday round ... paid only for the cart. I played this course 100's of times in the 1960s-1970s. It is greatly improved from then. The greens were the best ever ... running true and much faster than in the past. And back then, in the 1960s during the monthly pro-ams, the greens were said by the pros in town to be among the best.
