Nevada

Got Las Vegas, Reno or Boulder City on your mind? Be sure to bring along the clubs, you’re going to need them! Though there are something less than 100 courses in Nevada, they’re nearly all in just a few populated areas. In Las Vegas, there are courses right on the strip! So yes, Nevada is definitely a golf vacation destination.

What can you expect? Everything, literally. But don’t expect it to come cheap. The casinos have made the Vegas strip decidedly high-dollar real estate. Las Vegas courses start at slightly under $100 and go up to $300 for 18 holes. So for golf deals and tee time discounts check out the specials and golf vacation packages for Las Vegas.

In the top end is Bali Hai, a course right on the strip in Las Vegas. Well groomed, but pricey, one is well advised to check pattern traffic at the airport. Sometimes jets are passing very close overhead. If you’ve made it past the caveats, spectacular white sands and water hazards are surrounded by lush green grass. Caddy and forecaddy services are available, and you won’t even need a rental car to get there.

The Silverstone Golf Club is open to the public, offers four tees and is amongst the most reasonable courses in the state. A favorite of locals, it is well maintained and offers a picturesque view of the mountains as a backdrop amidst choice water hazards for many shots. A shop and golf academy, practice areas and a beautiful 34,000 square foot clubhouse add up to a worthwhile golf destination when in Vegas. Sienna Golf Club offers up a par-72 championship course nestled into the foothills, with a 13,500 square foot clubhouse and bistro. Along with its sister club, Red Rock Arroyo, these courses offer up a serene setting with just the right amount of challenge to be entertaining throughout. Rates are reasonable, and the folks at Schmidt-Curley did a respectable job of designing a course you’ll enjoy playing.

Arnold Palmer’s Angel Park offers up 36 choice holes, and Bears’ Best, a Jack Nicklaus compilation course provides 18 spectacular holes selected from amongst his 200 courses worldwide. Both of these Vegas courses hold must-play status for Las Vegas.

What about Reno and Lake Tahoe? What do you get when you take a region full of beautiful views, pine trees and broadly ranging sage fields? You get top-notch golf architects to build it, knowing that they will come. Robert Trent Jones, Jr. designed 3, Mountain Course at Incline Village, Resort at Red Hawk and also at Squaw Creek, while his father added Lake Ridge to the pot. Dick Bailey brought Whitehawk Ranch Golf Club to the table. Brad Bell’s stunning Coyote Moon Golf Course is not to be missed. Keith Foster’s D’Andrea Golf Club, George Fazio’s Edgewood Tahoe, Homer Flint’s Plumas Pines, John Harbottle’ Genoa Lakes. Hale Irwin and Peter Jacobsen each made their contribution, as did Johnny Miller. Jack Nicklau brought us Old Greenwood and Arnold Palmer designed Dayton Valley Golf Course. Those are some pretty heavy guests to the party, and they’ve left magnificent golfing for us.
