Headed to Vegas

Have not played out there, but know a couple of guys who have played Wolf Creek in Mesquite and absolutely loved it. It’s about an hour North on I-15 though so it’s not in town.

Looks cool. But, it's closed for maintenance the week I am there. Bummer.

Angel Park has two 18 hole Arnold Palmer courses and also a 12 hole lighted par three course that you can play at night. Moderate on the price tag. Wolf Creek as mentioned by others is very good. Rio Secco was very good, I played it a couple of years ago. Butch Harmon has his golf school there.

When I was in Vegas I played Bali Hai, Paiute (Wolf), Rio Secco, and Cascata. Out of these, Cascata is definitely the nicest and is a great experience; however, I would not call it moderately priced... If you are playing more than 1 round, Cascata and Rio Secco have a deal to book both courses at a small discount (this is what I did). The deal isn't cheap, but it was well worth it! Paiute is a great resort a little north of Vegas and I would also highly recommend it. They have 3 courses on property, so you'll have plenty to chose from, just watch out for the wind! As for Bali Hai, it's right off the strip and has some good views of the strip from the course. It's fun with some memorable shots, but doesn't quite compare to the others I mentioned...

The Revere Golf Club in Henderson is nice.  Don't know about their rental availability 

This is my favorite place to plyin Vegas, but there’s many good opinions. The Paiute courses are all great and in spectacular condition. A little out of the way, is Chimura and it’s a nice course that’ fits in your moderate price range. There’s more as well but the one’s mentioned in the thread is a great start.

Another buddy of mine recommended Reflection Bay in Henderson. Looks like around $100 round.

Wolf Creek is crazy and fun. Conestoga in Mesquite is almost as good. All the Paiute courses are excellent. Coyote Springs is in the middle of nowhere but a tough Nicklaus course. You'd need to rent a car for these. Boulder Creek, ( not the city course) is a surprisingly affordable option that is nice. 

   Primm has some nice courses, the name of the place escapes me now, I believe the courses are Lexington and Concorde?

Thanks, Tom. Will be playing Angel Park Mountain course end of Sept. They have a crazy deal for 66 dollars includes cart, clubs, balls etc. They are overseeding one week prior, I hope it is playable.

One of my favorite reasonably priced places to play in Vegas is Rhodes Ranch. Fun track close to the strip (about 15 minutes from Planet Hollywood) Always in great shape and when I've played pretty cheap. Think under $80. I always play super early when I'm there so I don't know if that changes any thing, but I love it there.

I used to go to Vegas at least once a year--haven't gone for about ten years now--

but I never used to play because my wife was with me and she doesn't play.

Not that it matters now, but where does one find a wife who lets one go to Vegas alone?

That would clearly be a game changer in a lot of ways, no?

 

Anyway, we stopped going because our age group isn't the catered to demographic anymore.

We used to alternate.

One washed up 1950s singer one night for her.

One chorus of naked showgirls on another night for me.

It worked out fine.

It's called a "Business Trip"

In fairness, Tom, does my Welsh Terrier, representing me,  look too dumb to think of that?

Milady worked in the same office as I.  Knew everything that went on.

The fates had me by the short, curly ones.

Well I guess you missed something in the training. Never mix business with pleasure. AKA  Don't get your honey where you make your money. Or, don't poop where you eat. 

In fairness I met my wife at work. Then I went and found another job and left her there. For a while she wanted me to get her a job there and I said no. 19 years later she wanted me to get our son a job there. Sorry no can do! Many years back I was at a company that I knew was moving to bust the union and I knew I was going with them but couldn't say anything. I watched complete family's get destroyed. Patents and kids worked at the same place. 480 out of 500 lost their jobs.

I am, as you can plainly see, NOT from a right to work state.  If I were, I wouldn't belong to a nice club in my retirement.

I was an accountant at  very large company where the hourly manufacturing workers union had an excellent union contract.  I was on the organizing committee that brought the Union into the office for accountants, bookkeepers, secretaries, material management people, and other clerical personnel.  I was the financial office's union rep and an elected executive board member of the new local.

As such I did find a way to get away on business but my wife certainly knew about it--as an elected convention delegate--but I didn't run for delegate the one year we had our convention in Vegas.  My wife was too familiar with Vegas and I thought better of it.

[Miami was a good time, but it's not Vegas. And of course, my wife was familiar with Miami too. But we got lucky that year and avoided significant domestic disaster.]

We occasionally traveled on other union business, but once we organized, the company never sent us away on company business trips anymore.  If training for something new was required, they brought it to us.

Anyway, the entire company crashed and burned on a global level but the represented workers left with a handsome severance agreement, our vested pensions, and full medical until it became supplemental medical when we became Medicare Eligible.  These things are simply not available to many young people today.  Your post reminded me of that sad fact.
