Nevada’s longest-running professional golf tournament, the Nevada Open kicks off next week with a prize purse of $150,000. The player field for the three-day tournament is set and Mesquite Gaming is excited to welcome 224 players traveling across more than 25 states. The 54-hole event will take place from November 10-12 and will be played on Mesquite Gaming’s most prestigious courses, the CasaBlanca Golf Club and Palms Golf Club.
Over the years, Nevada Open spectators have seen an impressive field of players including Tony Finau, Nate Lashley, Charlie Hoffman, Craig Barlow, Boyd Summerhayes, Kevin Stadler and Jay Don Blake; along with notable past champions Mark Anguiano, Trevor Simsby, Robert Gamez, Vic Wilk, Kevin Penner and Tom Lehman. Last year’s defending champion, Brett White from Houston, TX, will be returning to defend his title. This year’s tournament will include Ali Mulhall, our first female player. Mulhall, nicknamed “Gator,” is a 15-year-old, 2-time Future Champions national champion, two- time Drive Chip and Putt national finalist at Augusta (home of the Masters), and has over 200 tournament wins!
“Each year we see very impressive field of players and we’re looking forward to seeing how this year’s group performs as their season comes to a close,” said Christian Adderson, tournament director for Mesquite Gaming. “Both the CasaBlanca and Palms golf courses are in excellent shape for three days of competitive play. We’re excited to once again highlight Mesquite as the perfect golf resort destination.”
The tournament is free to all spectators. Viewers are encouraged to stay on the cart path during tournament play for the safety of the bystanders and players. The championship ceremony will be held at 1 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 12 at the CasaBlanca Golf Club.
