Named after the King of Golf – Arnold Palmer (RIP).
The King’s Cup is a friendly competition within the Mesquite Golf Trip for those that choose to opt in. It is 100% optional. It’s a 3 day Ryder Cup style competition
Simply put, we’ll split golfers in The Cup into two teams. The daily foursomes will be made with priority given to golfers you want to play with. After that, we will make the foursomes based on reported skill and format you want to play (again – designed to be fun)!
Nothing is officially wagered (although we encourage you to wager on your own accord). It’s all about personal pride and the ability to drink luke-warm booze out of the trophy during the pool party on Saturday!
Formats are flexible and we can accommodate your playing preference: Scrambling (2-man scrambles, 4-man scrambles) or Playing Your Own Ball (Stroke, Match Play, Team Best Ball, etc).
[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Temperature” open=”false”]
It’s hot. You look at the weather report and it says it will be 111 degrees… but you won’t fully appreciate the heat until you are in it. That’s why we tee off @ 6:30 AM every day. Bring plenty of sunscreen and apply it liberally throughout the day. Nobody wants their trip ruined because they are dealing with sunburn.
Also worth considering methods to keep you cool. I like to dunk towels in the water provided by the course and put it under my hat like I’m from the middle east. In the past people have brought spray bottles and fans, and there are things you can buy that have beads in them you can put in the freezer overnight then wrap it around your neck.
If you are re-rounded especially consider the heat. We have had no deaths or hospital trips so far and I would love to continue that streak!
[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Re-Rounding” open=”false”]
Re-rounding is a possibility every day. It will cost you either $20 / $25 / $30 depending on the course to go out again and play more golf.
While it’s a good deal for golf, it’s even hotter in the afternoon. If you are a fan of golf, I highly suggest re-rounding as the courses are fun and unique. Keep the temperature in mind and make sure you are able.
The decision to re-round does NOT have to be done in advance. It can be made the day of at each individual course so there is no need to make reservations.
[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Casino Gambling” open=”false”]
The casino is right across the parking lot from the hotel. The best part about the casino is the low table minimums. $3 is the minimum for blackjack / craps / etc which should encourage everyone to have some fun in the casino. Some of the games are a little janky (e.g. free bet blackjack) but for $3 minimums you can’t beat it. Drinks are free as long as you are gambling. The bingo room is super fun – especially if you’re working a nice buzz and don’t mind being judged by old people. It’s cheap too and drinks are free as long as you are gambling. At a minimum you should register for a “Gold Club” card. It’s free and you get a free gift. Anytime you gamble at a slot machine or table game (Poker / Blackjack / Roulette / Craps / Pai Gow / etc) you get points and that translates to free food / other free stuff.
[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Food in the Casino” open=”false”]
This isn’t Las Vegas. There aren’t big time chefs and restaurants but there are a handful of places to find good food to eat. Options:
Mason Street Courtyard. Good American food and they are open until 11:00 PM. You can get breakfast all day and they serve a variety of food including Asian food. They also won’t look down on you if you are super stoned trying to figure out what you want.
Gregory’s Grill. Open til 8 or 9 PM it’s a nice place to grab a steak / pork chop / chicken / Italian food / wine. Spendy but a nice place if you are looking for a good meal.
Town Square Buffet. 4:00 – 8:00 PM All you can eat you fatass.
Side Street. 11:00 PM – 6:00 AM. For the late night creep when you get hot at the dice table and need some food. Sandwiches / Breakfast / etc.
[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Food Around Town” open=”false”]
Sushi Masa. Believe it or not there is good sushi in Mesquite. Fairly priced and tasty. Right down the street on Pioneer Blvd.
Los Lupes. Really good Mexican food on the south side of town. Worth the trip if you’re craving Mexican.
Jack in the box. Big Steve’s favorite for breakfast tacos.
Panda Garden Chinese. Supposed to have good Chinese food.
Golf Courses. Typically the best solution for lunch. All of the courses we play have nice restaurants where you can grab a sandwich / salad / fries / meat / drinks / etc. It’s convenient and fairly prices – all of them are quality.
[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Nightlife” open=”false”]
Again – this isn’t Vegas. There is only 1 “club” and that’s Seasons Ultra Lounge inside the casino (8:30 PM- 3:00 AM). You can dance and get bottle service and cocktails.
That’s literally the only thing along those lines if you are looking for nightlife in Mesquite. Vegas Hookers won’t make the drive and nobody has yet to find any working in Mesquite. Just FYI.
[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Water and Hydration” open=”false”]
They provide plastic water bottles at the course but it’s worth it to bring your own. Fill up your water bottle and drink it between every water cooler.
It may sound excessive but you lose a lot of water out there and if you’re drinking booze this is needed to stay functional.
Bloody Mary’s and whiskey drinks go down well especially early on to get you right on the course before it starts getting too hot.
[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Booze + Booze on the Course” open=”false”]
Get your booze + beer @ Lee’s Discount Liquor. It’s right down the road on Pioneer Blvd and is super cheap. Great selection as well.
It has always been easy to bring booze onto the course. It’s cheaper than buying on the course and the best value as long as you can be a little discreet about it. As long as you aren’t blatantly loading up on beers in the parking lot of the golf course you should be fine.
[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Golf Balls” open=”false”]
Bring more golf balls than you think you need. The courses eat up balls and you cannot do a lot of hunting for balls in the desert (please respect the signs. If they say don’t go in there don’t go in there).
Even the A level golfers will lose balls and having extras is advised. If you need extras the Walmart on Pioneer Blvd sells bags of 30 rocks for $20. They aren’t proV1’s but they’re good enough for you.
[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Behavior Expectations on the Course” open=”false”]
These are really nice golf courses and we need to dress and behave to their standards. Please show up early and be ready to tee off at least 10 minutes before your tee time. If we tee off @ 6:30 it doesn’t mean you show up at 6:25 and are trying to figure it out. I would recommend arriving at least ½ hour before your tee time. Range balls are included in the price at every course.
The courses also require collared shirts and golf attire. No jean shorts and no tank tops you hillbilly.
Please also respect the signage on the course. If the area is closed because it is protected desert or there are rattlesnakes or it is under construction please respect that. They are serious about protecting their course and I would hate to see anybody thrown off for being an idiot.
[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Grocery” open=”false”]
Your best two options are Smiths and Walmart. Smiths is right across the highway from the hotel and Walmart is towards Conestoga on Pioneer Blvd.
[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Pool” open=”false”]
The pool is awesome and where the party happens most days after golf. The water is the perfect way to stay cool and there are two hot tubs for your old bones. They also have a handful of cabanas around the pool that are shaded and nice with couches and tables.
Drinking is ENCOURAGED in the pool area. After all they want you making bad gambling decisions. So bring your whiskey and beer (and a cooler!) and have a great time. People usually bring speakers as well to play music. No glass containers. The pool is open until 11:00 PM every night.
[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Hotel” open=”false”]
It should go without saying but I will say it anyway: Please be respectful in the hotel and with the hotel staff. We love this trip and they love having us and we plan to do it for many years into the future. Don’t jeopardize the relationship by being a jackass and destroying things or causing trouble.
[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”Drugs” open=”false”]
Weed is now legal in Nevada! Check out Deep Roots Harvest Dispensary, 195 Willis Carrier Canyon, Mesquite, NV 89034. About 8 minutes from the hotel.
Please don’t be a numbnuts. Smoking in your hotel room with smoke billowing out into the hallway isn’t the brightest move and we don’t need issues with the hotel. Open a window and keep a low profile.
Use all other drugs at your own risk.
If you are driving – keep in mind the Utah police aren’t nearly as kind as the Colorado or Nevada police.

The main form of communication from me to you out there will be text message. I will have my phone with me at all times and when I’m not sleeping I will be responsive.
