Las Vegas Golf for cheap!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I'm planning a trip to Las Vegas for some golf the weekend of dec 12th.

I'm looking to play on a public course, something nice but not super expensive. Thus far, the cheapest I've found was $159. I was hoping for a price closer to the $100 mark.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a good golf experience near Vegas at a reasonable price?

well, mesquite is about 40 miles away from vegas, and there you have Wolf Creek, which is a helluva course. We play that a couple times each time we visit my grandparents, which live 5 minutes away.

Hey guys,

Try Bear's Best; it is a terrific course. Don't know the "non-resident" rate, but I pay about 60.00 on Sundays. Beyond that, you can try The Legacy or Angel Park.

I was just there and if you are interested in playing some great courses in the afternoon..you can get some good twilight rates.

Badlands is a very frustrating "target" course. Take alot of ball if you plan to play there.

I live here, and your gonna overpay regaurdless. But I think TPC las vegas has some sort of deal right now to get on for 150 or something, bears best you could probably get similar. Both spectacular courses.

Theres lots or Rhodes Ranch, Sienna, Red Rock Arroyo, The Revere type courses that you can probaly get on for between $75 and $125 but honestly wont be any nicer than the courses you guys play at home. And pace of play in Vegas is the worse in the world when its busy, which is most of the time.

If Im going to solidly recomend something it would be Paiute. Its a little further north maybe 30 minutes from the strip. There have 3 courses, Sun, Snow, and The Wolf. All are beautiful Pete Dye courses, Sun and Snow are very similar 18 on Snow comes into the club house around water. probbaly the prettiest hole in Vegas. I got my first birdie there, and while you eat you can bet if people are going to 3 putt on that 18th green lol. The Wolf is one of the hardest courses in the US, its on golf digests list as well as just all around best too I believe. Its about 7800 yards from the tips.

What seperates them from the rest of Las Vegas, is that fact that its on an indian reservation so they dont have to adhere to the water restrictions everyone else does. So the courses are in better shape and the water in the lakes is actually blue. Water on holes in vegas tends to be ugly and sometimes plain smells bad.

If you're Military (even Ex) or a Federal employee (or married to one, or with one), you can play at Nellis Air Force Base. They have 36 finely manicured holes, and the price is right (less than $50). You must make tee times at least a week in advance, and get to the course well before your tee time to get through security (my how times have changed). I think it's worth the effort though. The pace is fast because there's not usually anyone else playing, especially week days.

Other "cheap" Vegas golf would be Las Prados, or Craigs Ranch. Or take a ride up to the dam area and play Boulder Municipal,

I think the best value golf would be the Legacy golf club, it's about 20 minutes out of town. It hosts a US Open qualifier and is usually in terrific shape.

My home course is the Sienna Golf Club. Would be nice to meet folks from this forum if you play there, too.

    • A competition is set up as a series of knockout rounds but each game is played as a 'match' using strokeplay counting (ie the winner is the one with the lowest net score). Should each game/'match' be treated as a 2 man field strokeplay competition or should each player record their score as a general play score?
    • A bit of foul language, but I don't think that bothers anybody in here:    
    • I'm playing 9 holes today. Right now is is pure sun, 48* temp, and gentle breeze. I have to see how my new clubs like it on a golf course!
    • I can't speak to this condition, but I had hand surgery last summer to reattach 2 tendons in my left pinkie. Some more general thoughts from me first, and then I'll talk about my experience if you'd like. If you opt to have hand surgery, make sure you discuss the recovery process with your hand surgeon. The healing process is easy, and hand surgery is not as invasive as most other surgeries (although it looks like this surgery is way more invasive than what I had). I had basically no pain after surgery. The bitch is the physical therapy. Make sure you talk to your doctor about what physical therapy will look like for you after the surgery. Also make sure you have a hand surgeon, not any old orthopedic surgeon. Hand surgeons are way more qualified and skilled than a regular orthopedic surgeon. Finally, ask how long it will take before you can use your hand for normal activities again.  I'm basically back to normal in my pinkie and hand now, but it was a pretty intense process. I started physical therapy 2 weeks after my surgery. From 2 weeks until about 4 months after surgery, I saw a hand therapist every 2 weeks. 6 weeks after my surgery, the physical therapy got very intense. At that point, I started doing exercises on my finger every hour I was awake. I was also doing about an hour of scar massage every day to break up the scar tissue. It's been about 6 months on, and I'm still doing exercises almost every hour, trying to get that last little bit of movement back. Note that I had to learn to move my pinkie again, and I had to break through a bunch of scar tissue to get the tendon to be supple again. After 6 weeks, I was allowed to do most things, but I didn't get the okay to golf until 3 months after the surgery. I had to use dictation software at work because I could only type with one hand for a while. I couldn't really cook or, the worst part, hold my baby for 6 weeks.  The surgery itself was simple and healing was fast. Like I said, I had basically no pain. My incision was only about 1/3 of the way down my palm, though. They removed my stitches 2 weeks after the surgery without any problems. The scar is not very noticeable. Sadly, haha. I should get a better scar out of all this at least! I do not regret the decision to have surgery, because otherwise I wouldn't have been able to move my pinkie. Looking back, I wish I knew more about the recovery process in advance, because that was the most arduous part.   
    • I would like to but I use it to keep in contact with former players and family.
