Headed to Vegas

Depends on, time, cost.  I like to play Rio Secco, Desert Willow and a couple of others I’ll have to get the names,  cards are in my bag now.  Anyway Rio Secco  is a couple of blocks from where my daughter lives and Dessert Willow is about 2 miles.  Dessert Willow is a short course, fun to play, greens are very contoured.  Rio is lot longer huge greens, typical dessert course, very well maintained, class joint..  Rio is about a $100 per round and Dessert is closer to 35.  I’ll post a couple of others later, the cards are in my bag.

Definitely....Definitely Coyote Springs, an hour north of Vegas in the middle of nowhere! Jack Nicklaus Signature, played it 3 times, best Nicklaus I've ever played. Painted Desert, and the two Palmer courses at Angel Park are very reasonable.

I live here in Henderson.  I also work at a couple of courses mentioned a lot on here.  Rio Secco, Cascata, one of the courses at Angle Park, one of the two courses at Revere as well as many others will be closed for overseeding from Labor day through the 25th.  There are a couple of courses you can play at that time--Royal Links, 18 replica holes from British open courses and greens are in good shape.  Arroyo and Senia are two more courses that you can play while they are over seeding, and Highland Falls and the Palm Course in Sumerlin alternate so one is open while the other course is done.  I heard a rumor that Stallion Mountain will not over seed this year so it will be open.  There is a county run course The Club at Sunrise that will be open until October and has great greens but the course leaves a lot to be desired is open.  Boulder Creek has 18 holes open and overseeding one of the 3three nines every other week.  All courses have rental sets.

Please remember if you are playing a course that is open one week after overseeding, greens will be long and slow, you may be cart path only and pace of play will be slow because many of the other courses are closed. 

Coyote Springs is open and is a great course about an hour out of the north side of town.  They have done all of their maintainance earlier in the year. 

Second week of October through Thanksgiving is the best golf weather here in Las Vegas area.  Prices when courses reopen are usually higher because of the cost and everyone here wants to get back out.  The courses that overseed the greens will be able to be cut so they will roll smooth but still a little slower.

By the way--check out prices through golfnow.com.  If you call the course or make them through a hotel, they will get you out of town rates.  I just followed up with an assistant golf pro at reflection bay and they are open through September.  It is more expensive than Angle Park but 10 times better course.  It is a Jack Nicklaus design and it worth the time.  They have rentals.  

At this time here in Las Vegas most courses have either TaylorMade or Callaway rentals except for a couple that have Titleist. 

Cascata and Rio Secco will be offering their Double Down this fall according to one the assistant golf pro there.  The price includes, carts, range balls and golf.  Rentals are separate and at Cascata you have to have a caddie.  They will read the putts because you will not be able to see it nor will you read up and down hills as they will. 

Good luck to all who want to come out and play--it is a great area if you like golf year around.

Headed to Vegas the last week of Sept. What are good courses, moderately priced with decent club rentals. Looks like some courses will be closed due the overseeding. 

Last time in Vegas one of the course we played was Bear's Best.  Got a good Golf Now Hot Deal.  The course was Fantastic! Definitely would go back and play again.

STallion Mountain Golf Club, which ajdegeno mentioned above.  We chose that course because Frank Sinatra Celebrity Classic was played there. Nice Course, also got a deal on Golf Now.  Aside from playing Mesquite courses, I'd play both Bear's Best & Stallion Mountain again.

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.

Are their club rentals good? It seems most rent Callaway Rogues or TM Sim.

Which of these do you recommend for a good value and decent club rentals? Have Angel Park booked, looking for two more.

Royal Links is the most reasonable but it is a tough course if you do not hit it straight.  Very high rough and 108 pot bunkers.  It is a lot of fun if you play the correct tees as are most courses.  I played there today and the course is in great shape.  Check out golfnow for pricing because I do not know the non-resident fees.  Bears best is a great course...holes off of Nicklaus courses all over the world.  I do not know if it is open and do not know any thing about there pricing.  Reflection bay will be a higher priced course but again is worth the price.  Golf now has those hot deals so check those out and you may be able to get a good deal.  Closer to the strip is Revere and one of their courses is open all of the time a more reasonable price than reflection bay.

Good luck and have a great time while you are here.
