Revere Golf Club's Concord Course offers the complete package for Las Vegas golfers

LAS VEGAS -- The Concord Course at Revere Golf Club offers the complete package for golfers: severe elevation changes, impressive conditioning and great risk/reward holes.

The Concord is the newer of the two layouts at Revere G.C. (along with the Lexington Course). At 7,043 yards, this Billy Casper/Greg Nash course is playable for everyone and will definitely make players think their way around the course. This is one of those layouts where brains beat brawn every time.

The course also features one of the best closing holes in Vegas, the 551-yard, par-5 18th. Called Independence, this hole has it all -- water, bunkers (how about 18 of them!), elevation change (about 50 feet from the top of the fairway down to the green), and a ravine that slices in front of the green. A great hole to finish a solid round of golf. Again, think before you swing on your second shot. Going for it in two may seem like a good idea, but plenty of big numbers can come into play.

And there's one more thing that will impress. One of the best panoramic views of the entire Las Vegas Strip skyline. Sitting in the dining area around dusk, you'll be amazed. You'll see the entire Strip light up right before your eyes.
