Las Vegas has over 50 golf courses yet they are not all created equal. Some have absolutely immaculate greens, lush fairways and awe-inspiring views. Below, we highlight a handful of Sin City’s best golf courses to help you get the most out of your Las Vegas getaway.
5. Shadow Creek
At one point, Shadow Creek was so popular that it was nearly impossible to get a tee-time. Nowadays, it isn’t nearly as difficult to reserve a slot yet it is still ranked as one of the top 20 public golf courses by Golf Magazine.
The fact that Shadow Creek has not been modified in the slightest since 2008 is a testament to its near perfection. Course architect Tom Fazio incorporated bentgrass greens in ’08 and trimmed some of the trees to clear out space for course vistas. The course is highlighted by mind blowing views and a flawless landscape including gigantic waterfalls and peaceful gardens juxtaposed against the desert mountains.
4. Wynn Las Vegas
If you’d like to be merely footsteps away from a world class golf course during your stay in Las Vegas, reserve a room at the Wynn. Considering the desert location, the Wynn course is as green as it gets. It’s a 7,042 yard, par-70 that features sculpted mounding, a charming waterfall behind the final hole’s green and five challenging par-3s. You can book a tee time to play the Wynn Las Vegas 3 months in advance and the hotel will even provide you with complimentary Foot Joy shoes as well as Callaway clubs.
In Italian, Cascata means “waterfall”. Indeed, a wondrous waterfall over 400 feet from a mountaintop flows all the way around this beautiful golf course all the way to the Tuscan themed clubhouse. This $70 million golf course was designed by Rees Jones and opened in 2000. Its dramatic elevation changes make the course highly unique. There’s 800 feet worth of elevation change across the course that stands 3,000 feet high above the desert valley. Golfers flock to Cascata for more than its challenging greens. Cascata has nuances like a river that runs through the clubhouse and bighorn sheep that roam by the course. Be sure to bring your camera as you’ll enjoy amazing views at each turn, including Red Mountain’s 3,600-foot peak.
2. The Wolf
This 7,604 yard Pete Dye designed course is the longest in all of Nevada. It features a 182 yard 15th hole with a picturesque island green. You really do feel like you are teeing off at number 17 at the TPC SawgrassStadium Course when you’re at Wolf’s 15th. Best of all is the affordable price. You’ll pay a little over $100 to play this lovely course. It’s perfect for anyone who wants to play a difficult course in an exquisite desert setting.
1. TPC Las Vegas
The Tournament Players Club Las Vegas offers jaw-dropping views that will impress even the most experienced golfer. You’ll feel like you are in golf heaven when playing the TPC Las Vegas.
