Stallion Mountain Set to Reopen
Stallion Mountain Golf Club in Las Vegas has been acquired by a Colorado-based ownership group and is set to reopen for play this summer. Located just six miles from the Las Vegas Strip, Stallion Mountain features 18 holes designed by former PGA Tour professional Jim Colbert and golf architect Jeff Brauer.
Scottsdale-based OB Sports Golf Management has been preparing the course for the reopening and will manage all aspects of the facility, including golf operations, agronomy, food and beverage, instruction, membership sales and marketing.
"We are thrilled to bring Stallion Mountain back to its prominence. We will reopen with a fresh new look, exceptional course conditions and a service profile that supports this once great club," stated Steve Kerr, managing partner of the acquiring entity, 5500 E. Flamingo Rd, LLC. "We look forward to the job creation we will create as a result . . . not to mention, we are excited for the revitalization the club's opening will have for the community and area residents."
Kerr and his partners have also acquired Fox Hill Club in Longmont, Colo., and have a controlling ownership of Colorado National Golf Club in Erie, Colo. Both are now affiliated with OB Sports.
Stallion Mountain will be a semiprivate facility with flexible memberships available for residents and non-residents. In addition, the club will be available for resort guest play, group/tournaments, weddings, banquets and events.
The 38,000-square-foot clubhouse at Stallion Mountain overlooks the golf course and surrounding mountain ranges. "The golf course conditions at Stallion Mountain were better then we thought when we first took it over. We are now ramping up to provide exceptional playing conditions for our opening," said Phil Green, president of OB Sports Golf Management.
"Our primary task is to execute some of the detail work on the course, employ our team and get the expansive clubhouse facility prepared for the summer opening. We'll first open it for invitational play this summer then we'll get the club ready for a grand reopening after over-seeding is completed in September."
OB Sports also operates three other popular Las Vegas-area courses, including The Legacy Golf Club in Henderson, Angel Park Golf Club in Las Vegas and Aliante Golf Club in North Las Vegas.
"OB Sports was the perfect group to lead our efforts at Stallion Mountain," added Kerr. "They have been operating clubs and facilities in Las Vegas since 1989 and have a wealth of knowledge and relationships in the market as well as the key feeder markets to Las Vegas. We are excited to have them at the helm of our operations at Stallion Mountain."
Upon reopening Stallion Mountain will unveil an innovative membership, where members will have preferential tee-time access, invitations to exclusive member events, guest benefits, locker room privileges, a full calendar of golf and social events along with travel benefits to play the other OB Sports courses at preferred rates and much more.
