Bali Hai is a fun and obviously convenient course to the Las Vegas strip. The staff is very friendly and the pace of play on what was a busy day was very good given the generous fairways and greens. Be prepared for quite a bit of noise from the airport, but after a couple of hole, it is a non factor. Would play here again for the price we were able to get from Golf Now. We have chosen not to play here in the past years at the rack rate. Overall a good experience.

Played over Memorial Day weekend. I have played there many times and it remains one of my favorite courses in Vegas.

PROS:

- The layout is fun, interesting and as challenging as you want it. 7,100 yards off the tips for a par 71 is a good challenge, while off the golds it's 6600 and gives you a fun time for a resort course.

- Any course that the caddie can tell you "Just aim to the top of the Luxor" is great by me! Great views of the Strip.

- The course is overall in great shape, the greens are true (if not a little unfair given where the pins were...).

CONS:

- THE BUNKERS...OMG. You would have a better chance getting a ball airborne in the Bali Hai parking lot. Solid concrete with less sand than an ice rink. Might be the worst bunkers I have ever played. Led to two double bogeys and a ruined round.

- Price...typical Vegas course. The course would be an absolute gem...at half of what they charge. But I guess if you're staying n the strip it's certainly better than driving a half hour to pay a little less somewhere like Royal Links (ugh).

Overall I really do love the course, I just hope they actually add some sand to the bunkers next time I play there.

While the course and experience could have been perfectly fine, they started by requiring us to pay for the other two members of our foursome that had to cancel. I recognize that the policy is published but I have been to many courses where this has occurred and this is the first time I have ever been required to pay. They acted like they could care less and that was the deal. They then gave us a credit to use but of course we could not use it for food, drinks, or anything else we actually would buy that day so that ended up feeling more manipulative. We were then greeted by someone who "welcomed us" with all of the gusto of a time share salesperson as he tried to "threaten" us with all of the courses mistifying features in the hopes that we would hire a caddie. He should have just asked if we wanted a caddie. We then got the 5 minute speel from the starter like we had never played golf before. Once we finally got onto the course the golf was actually fine. We just had to go through the runaround which they use to separate you from your money. Not really the way you want to start the day.

This is a course with $199 tee times and $75 rental clubs that sells tee times on a Saturday at 12:10, 12:15 and 12:20. That’s right, to squeeze a couple extra $ in they throw in 5 minute tee time gaps. Our round was unsurprisingly 5+ hours.

They also allowed a bachelor party to sneak in a couple extra 4-somes.

When told about the slow round, the rangers said why are you complaining, you are in Vegas and what do you expect for a Saturday round.

The $75 rental set of clubs don’t include any balls. Throw in some titleists.

The range is simply nets.

The positives are the course is well designed, is a resort course with wide fairways and most holes you can play off the adjoining fairways. It is also close to the strip. The staff in the restaurant are super nice. Greens run true and are fast but not unfair. Cart girls are nice.

Bunkers need sand and gps is off on a couple holes.

So if you have a lot of time and want to play a five hour round waiting every single hole while in the desert heat and get the sense the course got every cent from you, it is a well designed golf course near the strip. If you want to get into a flow with your swing, there are plenty of other courses in Vegas.
