Best Golf

You’d never guess that a city like Las Vegas, in the middle of a desert, would be home to a golf course, which generally commands lush greens, foliage, and a lot of water. But actually, Las Vegas is home to many of the world’s most fantastic golf courses. Some are even the site of PGA tournaments and playing ground for the world’s best golfers. So find a caddy, throw on your favorite golf shirt, and play a few rounds at some of Vegas’ best and brightest golf courses.
 
One of the newest and most beautiful courses in town is at the Wynn Las Vegas. Designed by world-famous golf architect Tom Fazio and Steve Wynn, the 18-hole, 7,042-yard and 70-par golf is fully integrated with the resort. You’ll find food and beverage services at holes 9 and 13, along with fully equipped golf carts and other resort-quality amenities and services. Providing marvelous views for the Wynn’s luxury villas, the course features sweeping greens and crystal clear waterfalls and streams, along with dramatic elevations not found anywhere else on the Strip.
 
A few miles away from the Strip, the famous Shadow Creek is one of the most admired golf courses in the world. Also designed by Tom Fazio, Shadow Creek highlights the beauty of the desert and features breathtaking views of the mountains. Once reserved only for the elite, this legendary club is now open to guests of MGM Mirage resorts, though only a small group of players is scheduled each day. Shadow Creek is truly a peaceful golf sanctuary for serious players.
 
Also located away from the Strip amidst the awe-inducing beauty of the Red Rock area of Las Vegas, Arroyo Golf Club is a beautiful but challenging course. This Arnold Palmer-designed course is a treacherous 6,883-yard, par-72 with lush Bermuda grass fairways, Bentgrass greens and five different sets of tee boxes to accommodate golfers of all abilities.
 
Whether you’re a first-time player or a golf enthusiast, Las Vegas golf courses will stun you with their beauty and entertain you with their excellent designs. Some courses feature challenges difficult enough for the most seasoned of players, while others provide fun practice for the beginner. There’s something for everyone at these world-class golf courses.
