Had the pleasure of playing here for a corporate tournament...Was truly incredible to play this course!!!

Had a caddy, Chad, who was fantastic, and did a great job sharing insights on shots, and plays, did a great job adapting to what each player wanted for feedback and input...

Our pace of play considering it was a corporate event, was AMAZING, finished in under 5 hours...

Greens were spectacular, rolling around 11.5 Stimp...hardly a ball mark on the greens which is something considering it was a corporate event...the

Fairways were perfect condition, and all divots were filled in, no issues at all...

Tee boxes were in perfect shape...clearly no expense with water or turf is spared anywhere on this course!!!

(required question is cost for round, have no clue as it is a private club)

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.
