  • Best golf courses in Las Vegas

    Las Vegas is not exactly a city associated with sports, unless you consider gambling, nightclubbing and quickie marriages. But when it comes to golf, Las Vegas is a golfer’s paradise. Although it seems strange for so many amazing golf courses to be located int he middle of the desert, there are many amazing courses in the city, and even the most hard-core golf fan will be satisfied.

    So if you like golf, next time you go to Sin City don’t forget to take your clubs with you, and spend an afternoon (or two, or three, or even an entire week) on one of the best golf courses in Las Vegas.

    Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort’s Wolf Course

    The Wolf Course is one of the three amazing courses designer by Pete Dye, one of the most famous golf course designers in the world. The Wolf Course is also the most difficult course at Paiute, and the longest course in Nevada.

    The vast green hills of the course act seem to suddenly transform into very slippery surfaces when a golf ball comes in contact with them, so to say the least, this course is not exactly fit for beginners. And as difficult as the course might be, nothing comes even close to the sheer insanity of the finishing hole.

    The Falls Golf Club at Lake Las Vegas

    Designer Thomas Weisskopf managed to create a golf course that’s both very picturesque, and challenging. The Falls course is full of altitude differences, lush greenery and waterfalls.

    The beauty (and difficulty) of this course lies in its varied topography (it goes from deserts to mountains and back again), and the sheer number of streams, gullies and waterfalls. All in all, this is one of the most esthetically pleasing and treacherous courses in Nevada.

    Reflection Bay at Lake Las Vegas

    Located just next to the Falls, Reflection Bay is a masterpiece created by Jack Nicklaus, who whisks you away to Palm Beach with this skillfully designed course. Reflection Bay combines the desert golf course with the beach golf course, like a blend of the Southeast and Southwest US. While at the first glance this course seems to be nothing more than eye-candy, don’t be fooled by it, because it is quite challenging.

    Bali Hai Golf Club

    Bali Hai is notable for its lavish themed design, which in pure Las Vegas spirit is capable of making you think that you’re in another part of the world. Bali Hai feels like an island in the South Pacific, what with its palm trees and other assorted tropical plants. In addition to the gorgeous greens, there are over 7 acres of water features, which complicate the course a great deal.
