Reviewed on

This private club owned by Pacific Links is a Las Vegas treasure on par with the Bellagio fountains or any of the other magnificent attractions along the Strip. Its man-made wonders - the 42,000-square-foot clubhouse and roaring waterfall near the ninth green - have to be seen to be believed. Southern Highlands, the home course of the UNLV men's golf team, is an oasis of opulence in the desert. Million-dollar homes (one owned by boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.) line the fairways. Caddies guide their guests through a maze of water and bunkers. The course, a collaboration between Robert Trent Jones Sr. and Jr., requires endless shot-making, from drivable par 4s (especially from the white tees) to some cool par 5s. The back nine climbs to the elevated 11th tee that overlooks everything. This is as fun as hard courses get.
