Thanks to Gov. Sisolak’s amended directive allowing golf activities to resume  if played “safely and in a way that prevents the spread of COVID-19,” the  the Canyon Nine Golf Course is now open. Here are the details:

The Canyon 9 is open for all Somersett residents to enjoy at no cost. No reservations are required. We ask those playing the course to maintain social distancing at all times. As a courtesy to other golfers, please keep groups to no more than four players per group to help with course flow.

Here are other guidelines we have put in place to enhance safety:

  • Rings have been installed in the holes to prevent your ball from falling into the cup. Please use your golf club to knock the ball from the hole. Do not retrieve the ball with your fingers!
  • Bunker rakes have been removed from the course. Golf staff will periodically rake bunkers.
  • Ball washers on the course have been removed.
  • Restrooms and water fountains are closed.
  • Pushcarts have been removed from the course to avoid a touch point. You are welcome to use your own push cart.
  • Remember, benches should also be considered a potential touch-point surface, so please do not use them.

Be safe and enjoy your game!

  1. Briefly, having played Canyon 9 twice in the last week I would like to express my concerns regarding the lack of control the Somersett Owners Association currently has over the course. Both times there were groups on the course who had more than four players. There appears to be many non-Somersett residents playing the course, both the group ahead and behind us were not Somersett residents. With the increase in players, both residents and non-residents, the tees are in bad shape. Lastly, residents pay association fees which help support Canyon 9 and currently non-residents are not charged to play the course. Hopefully the Association can reopen the Golf Hut soon to maintain control of access to Canyon 9 as Covid-19 directives allow.
