Really surprised Coyote Springs didn’t make your list of the best 10 in LV. This is a Jack Nicklaus course and a great stop on the way to Mesquite - a beautiful and well-maintained course out in the middle of nowhere. The greens are fast and have the most undulation of just about any course I’ve ever played... and I can’t wait for my next opportunity to return.
I've heard good things about Coyote Springs, but it would be hard to crack this list b/c I tried to keep the picks close to the Strip. Wolf Creek got included b/c it's just so awesomely unique.
Curious where you would put either of the Angel Park courses. I thoroughly enjoy them and they are at a much more reasonable price point that many (most?) other LV courses.
And what is up with the "non-Clark County resident" fee? Seems counter-productive to charge visitors with a million other things they can do, a higher fee than locals.
Angel Park is a great choice. I agree on the notion that, for the price, it's as good a value as any in Vegas.
Of the 10 courses listed I have played 4 of them.The Wolfe Paiute ( my favorite)TPC Las VegasRoyal Links (1st time I used a forecaddie)Wynn ( in 2007 before they made all the 2019 changes)Main rule: don’t play in the summer
Why no golf in the summer?
Finally a list that is accurate. I’m a native Las Vegan who has been playing golf (badly) since the 70’s. Back then, the LV Country Club, Desert Inn, Tropicana, and the Dunes were my favorite places to play as a youth. Only the Country Club remains, and it’s still private. The Bellagio hotel sits on top of the grounds where the Dunes existed. The Winn took over the DI, but they have built a great course over the original. The Trop was razed for a theme park owned by the MGM that went away. Thanks for getting it right.
I'm staying at the four seasons this weekend and wondered what the degree of difficulty is at Bali Hai. I'm a bogie plus golfer so if that place is too hard can you recommend somewhere else for this Saturday?Thanks, Joe
I have my moments but am by no means good. I loved Bali Hai and will go back. Might suggest picking up some colored balls if you tend to skirt the fairways as the white sand makes finding a ball a little difficult. As a bogey golfer, I bet you will like it.
My only knock on them is they do not have a range. They have a handful of stations under a pergola where you hit into a net about 25 yards away. Too close for me to judge the distance I am hitting a particular club at the time or if you spun the ball correctly. But all the balls you want to hit are part of the green fee. Other than that, I had a great time. Some reports of rudeness by course officials, but I did not experience that.
Joe, you should be fine. Pretty wide fairways, A few forced carries but just play the right tee boxes. Definitely more manageable than some of the desert courses in the hills.
Going to be in LV in April. Don't know whether to play Shadow or Wynn. If I catch a good run of cards I'll do both! LOL #$500
