During the last week of May, Mesquite Gaming – owner of the Casablanca Resort and Virgin River Hotel, celebrates its 16th anniversary of the Mesquite Amateur, the second largest handicapped amateur tournament in the nation, May 28 through June 1. The five-day 54-hole, net, stroke play tournament allows competitors to play 3 rounds of tournament golf on some of Mesquite’s scenic and award-winning courses. Registration is now open with early-bird pricing at $525 per player when you register by March 31.


“The Mesquite Amateur is always a fun event that brings amateur golfers and spectators from around the country to experience Mesquite,” said Christian Adderson, tournament director for Mesquite Gaming. “We have seen tremendous growth in the tournament with the great value this tournament offers for a first class tournament.”


The field will consist of five divisions, and participants compete against players with a similar handicap, calculated using their 12-month low Handicap Index. Finalist rankings will be determined by comparing the three-day cumulative score, and the top four participants from each flight will compete in the 18-hole championship round at the CasaBlanca Golf Club.


Every player that registers, whether before or after March 31, will receive a $100 spend at the Mobile Pro Shop, which will feature Taylor Made and Adidas products; three rounds of golf at three different courses including a cart and range balls; admission to all four dinner parties; nightly raffle prizes, featuring prizes from annual sponsors including TaylorMade, Adidas, the Mesquite Resort Association, Callaway Golf, Southern Wine & Spirits and the City of Mesquite; and the chance to play in the final championship round.
