MESQUITE, Nev. — Featuring a $140,000 prize purse, Nevada’s longest-running professional golf tournament, the Nevada Open, is set to take place Nov. 6-8, and registration is now open. This year, the 54-hole event will be played on Mesquite Gaming’s most prestigious courses, the CasaBlanca Golf Club and Palms Golf Club.

“Mesquite Gaming is proud to once again host an amazing tournament with more than four decades of history,” Christian Adderson, tournament director for Mesquite Gaming, said in a press release. “At $140,000, the purse is lucrative and we’re looking forward to seeing the top professional golfers from around the country come and enjoy all our resort destination has to offer.”

In addition to the $140,000 purse, Mesquite Gaming and sponsor Mesquite Resort Association are excited to announce prizes will also be awarded for the Pro-Am and amateur competitions. Back for the third year, the Pro-Am is scheduled for Nov. 5 at The Palms Golf Club.
