Mesquite Gaming Hits the Links with Inaugural CasaBlanca II Man Golf Tournament

(Mesquite, Nev.) – On the heels of the 2017 Nevada Open, Mesquite Gaming, owner of CasaBlanca Resort and Virgin River Hotel, hosts its inaugural CasaBlanca II Man golf tournament with a purse of $5,000 Friday, Nov. 10 through Sunday, Nov. 12. The newly-launched event features play on three of Mesquite’s most picturesque golf courses: Palms Golf Club, CasaBlanca Golf Club and Conestoga Golf Club.

The CasaBlanca II Man will showcase a different format each day, allowing both amateur and professional golfers to compete with varying handicap rules. The tournament begins with a welcome reception and pairing party for participants. Day one features the tournament’s namesake, a two-man scramble format at the Palms Golf Club, using 25 percent of the team’s combined handicap. Day two features a best-ball format at Conestoga Golf Club and the full team handicap will be used. The final tournament day is held at Casablanca Golf Club with a modified alternate shot format and uses 25 percent of the combined team handicap.

“Fall is a great time to be in Mesquite with the temperatures typically in the mid-70s and the golf courses in pristine condition,” said Christian Adderson, Mesquite Gaming tournament director. “The CasaBlanca II Man will be a fun event for participants, strategically timed as we finish out the always-popular Nevada Open event.”

The scenic and award-winning course lineup for both tournaments includes the CasaBlanca Golf Club, featuring an 18-hole, 7,011-yard championship course, designed by Cal Olson; the Palms Golf Club with scenic elevation changes along the Virgin River wetlands and a special par-five hole with a 114-foot drop to the fairway; and the Gary Panks-designed Conestoga Golf Club, which boasts a combination of canyon holes with gently ascending and descending elevations, rugged rock outcroppings and tranquil water elements, catering to a variety of skill levels.

Entry fees for the tournament are $350 per person or $700 per team of two. CasaBlanca Resort room specials are offered for the tournament weekend at $64 nightly, in addition to hotel tax and a daily resort fee. Book a room online or call 702-345-6789.
