About Us

Desert Willow Golf MacDonald Ranch is Southern Nevada’s most challenging executive golf course.

The Billy Casper and Greg Nash designed 18 hole 3,811 yards par 60 course presents a formidable challenge for players of all skill levels. Carved from the foothills of Henderson’s Black Mountain, Desert Willow features 6 par 4’s and 12 par 3’s all surrounded by demanding sands traps, hilly terrain, undulating greens as well as water that comes into play on 3 holes.

Desert Willow will most definitely test your ability, finesse and patience. The course has won numerous awards from Vegas golfer Magazine and Golf Range Magazine. Desert Willow was one of the first courses in Nevada to offer junior tees, making it family friendly. After your round of golf be sure to visit the Willow Restaurant and Bar.

The practice facilities are top notch, with one of the largest driving ranges in Henderson. Full chipping and short game targets to work 75 yards and in. The range offers 5 target locations all on mounds so you can practice those target shots.

A 9,500 sq ft putting green remarkably similar to the greens on the course gives the player the ability to practice various distance and green contours.
