Where To Play Golf In Las Vegas

There are dozens of fantastic golf courses surrounding Sin City. Here’s a look at a few of the best courses I would recommend for your Las Vegas golf trip!

Best Las Vegas Golf Courses Under $100:

First up, let’s take a look at a few of the best courses for those on a tight budget!

1. Aliante Golf Club

Just a 20-minute drive from the Las Vegas Strip puts you on the grounds of the Aliante Golf Club. This is a simple links course that always seems to be in decent condition.

The fairways offer generous landing areas so you and your buddies will feel confident to grip it and rip it off the tee.

One of the best things about Aliante is that they’re very accommodating of groups and large parties.

For example, if you have a large group featuring several foursomes, you can get them to print contest signs (long-drive, KP, long-putt, etc..) for your round!

Details:

-Distance From Strip: 20 minutes.

– Yardage: 7,022

– Designer: Gary Panks Associates

– Cost: $60

Pros:

  • Group outings available.
  • Only 20 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip.
  • Low cost (well under $100 per round).
  • Complementary cart and range balls included in green fees.
  • Mountain views.

Cons:

  • No GPS on carts.
  • Relatively flat terrain.

2. Angel Park Cloud 9 Course

Add some variety to the courses you play with Angel Park’s Cloud 9 Par 3 course. Here you’ll find a clever little 12-hole design by Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay.

With a price of just $20 or less (depending on the time of year), you’ll be able to have a few cold drinks with your friends and plenty of opportunities to throw some darts at the greens.

Not feeling the short course? Angel park also has two more 18-hole courses – the Mountain Course and the Palm Course.

Details:

-Distance From Strip: 15 minutes.

– Yardage: 1,290 (all Par 3s)

– Designer: Arnold Palmer/Ed Seay

– Cost: $10-$20

Pros:

  • Just 15-minutes from the Las Vegas Strip.
  • Open after dark (lighted greens and hitting areas).
  • Rock-bottom prices (less than $20).
  • Casual atmosphere.
  • Plenty of chances for the ever-elusive ace!
  • Walkable.

Cons:

  • Only 12 holes (9 at night).
  • No GPS on carts.

3. Las Vegas Golf Club

Established in 1938, Las Vegas Golf Club is the oldest course in the valley. It is also the closest course to downtown Las Vegas, making it a prime track for those who do not wish to wander too far from their hotel.

At just 6,339 yards from the back tees, this course is one of the shortest in the area and features plenty of short Par 3s, reachable Par 5s, and even a couple of drivable Par 4s.

But don’t let its short yardage fool you. Most holes still require a solid second shot to put yourself in a position to make birdie.

Details:

– Distance From Strip: 5-10 minutes.

-Yardage: 6,339

– Designer: William P. Bell

– Cost: $40-$110 (time and season dependant).

Pros:

  • Closest course to the Las Vegas Strip (5-10 min, traffic dependant).
  • Short, fun layout with plenty of reachable Par 5s and birdie opportunities.
  • Reasonable green fees ($40-$110 depending on the time of day and season).

Cons:

  • Long-hitters will easily overpower this course.
  • Can be busy due to its location right in the city.

4. Las Vegas National

Las Vegas National is situated in the heart of Las Vegas. The grounds here have a storied history and have been graced by the likes of Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, and Lee Travino.

In fact, this course was the site of Tiger’s very first PGA Tour victory at the 1996 Las Vegas Invitational!

At just over 6,800 yards, it’s not as long as some of the other courses you’ll find in the area. That said, strategically placed trees, tight fairways, and undulating greens make it challenging nonetheless.

Rates here are highest in the fall and spring when the weather is ideal, however, you’ll still be able to play this Las Vegas golf course for under $100 if you take advantage of the twilight rates.

Also, due to its close proximity to the Strip, it will only cost you a few bucks via Uber or cab to make it to this course.

Details:

– Distance From Strip: 10 minutes.

-Yardage: 6,815

– Designer: Bert Stamps

– Cost: $54-$139

Pros:

  • Just 10 minutes away from the Strip.
  • Shorter layout forces players to carefully consider each shot.
  • Site of Tiger Woods’ first PGA Tour win.
  • Excellent food for after your round at the Ratpack Bar & Grill.

Cons:

  • Tight fairways can get you in trouble.
  • Rates creep above $100 in the Spring and Fall.

5. Boulder City Golf Course

If saving a few bucks is your top priority, you can play two decent courses at Boulder City – the Boulder City Course or the Boulder Creek Course.

The Boulder Creek Course is the nicer of the two but also more expensive. It features three different 9’s that can be paired together in different combinations to add some variety.

Both of these courses feature wide, rolling fairways with sweeping views of the Nevada mountains.

Details:

– Distance From Strip: 30 minutes.

-Yardage: Boulder City Course, 6,600 yards | Boulder Creek Course, 7,525 – 7,628 yards.

– Designer: Billy Casper and David Rainville

– Cost: Boulder City Course, $40-$60 | Boulder Creek Course $55-$120

Pros:

  • Some of the cheapest golf you’ll find near Las Vegas.
  • Two decent courses to choose from.
  • Generous replay rates – just $30 for your second 18.
  • Breathtaking views of the Nevada mountains.

Cons:

  • A fair distance from the Strip (30 minutes).
  • Might not provide the same quality as other courses.

Best High-End Courses in Las Vegas:

If you have some wiggle room in your budget, I’d recommend checking out at least one of the courses below. Yes, you’ll pay a hefty price, but from my experience, it’s worth every penny!

1. Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort

Paiute Golf Resort features three spectacular courses – Snow MountainSun Mountain, and The Wolf. All three courses are designed by renowned golf course architect and World Golf Hall of Famer, Pete Dye.

I had a chance to play here in 2019 and I can tell you the service, amenities, and golf are all on par with what you would expect from a premium golf resort.

That said, my friends and I had the misfortune of choosing to play here on the only day in the past 10 years when it snowed in Vegas.

But that’s neither here nor there – the course was still in excellent shape and one of the best I’ve played to date.

Details:

Distance From Strip: 25-30 minutes.

Yardage: Snow Mountain – 7,164 | Sun Mountain – 7,112 | The Wolf – 7,604

Designer: Pete Dye

Cost: Peak Season – $89-$209 | Off-season – $69-$129

Pros:

  • 3 great courses to choose from.
  • Perfect conditions.
  • First-class amenities.
  • All 3 courses ranked in top 15 courses in Nevada (Golfweek Magazine).

Cons:

  • Can be expensive.
  • Temperature is 8-10 degrees cooler than on the Strip so you might need to pack extra layers.

2. Bear’s Best Golf Course

Bear’s Best is a unique course composed of Jack Nicklaus’s favorite 18 holes from more than 200 of his designs throughout the world.

By playing this course, you get a taste of several vintage Nicklaus designs!

As with every Nicklaus course, no expense has been spared. From the condition of the course to the design of the 10,000 square foot clubhouse, this course offers a luxurious experience for golfers.

Details:

Distance From Strip: 20 minutes.

Yardage: 7,194

Designer: Jack Nicklaus

Cost: $149-$249

Pros:

  • Top 18 holes handpicked by Jack Nicklaus from all his other courses.
  • State-of-the-art 10,000 square foot clubhouse for dining and events.
  • Golf carts with GPS.
  • Rooms for private parties.

Cons:

  • Fairly expensive.
  • Can be difficult to get on.

3. Shadow Creek Golf Course

Carved into the Nevada desert, Shadow Creek Golf Course is one of the most sought-after courses on our list of the top courses for a Las Vegas golf trip. It’s a Par 72 course that stretches over 7,500 yards of gorgeous desert terrain.

In order to get access to this one-of-a-kind course, you’ll need to be a registered guest of an MGM Resorts International destination. In Vegas, the following hotels are owned by MGM:

  • Bellagio
  • ARIA
  • Vdara at ARIA
  • MGM Grand
  • The Signature at MGM Grand
  • Mandalay Bay
  • Delano Las Vegas
  • Park MGM
  • NoMad Las Vegas
  • The Mirage
  • New York-New York
  • Luxor
  • Excalibur

So, if you’re staying on the Vegas Strip, there’s a good chance you’re in an MGM hotel and therefore have access to playing privileges at Shadow Creek.

However, fair warning, a round at Shadow Creek will take a major bite out of your budget.

Details:

Distance From Strip: 20 minutes.

Yardage: 7,560.

Designer: Tom Fazio.

Cost: $500 per player.

Pros:

  • Included on Golf Digest list of top 100 courses in America.
  • Special deals for MGM resort guests.
  • Immaculate conditions and unbeatable scenery.

Cons:

  • Very exclusive – only open to MGM resort guests Mon-Thurs (Fri-Sat is reserved for invited guests only).
  • Expensive – a round here will run you $500 per player.

4. Wynn Golf Club

You wouldn’t know you’re in the heart of the Nevada Desert when playing a round of golf at Wynn Golf Club. Here you’ll find plenty of lush greenery, trickling streams, even a 37-foot waterfall behind the 18th green!

It’s a Par 70 course stretching 6,722 yards from the back tees. The Wynn Golf Club is truly a luxurious venue.

Wynn takes fantastic care of players by providing golf carts fully stocked with your favorite drinks, on-course culinary options, and full-service locker rooms.

Details:

Distance From Strip: 9 minutes.

Yardage: 6,722 (Par 70)

Designer: Tom Fazio and Steve Wynn

Cost: $500+ peak season, $300-$400 off season.

Pros:

  • Pristine conditions.
  • Very close to the Las Vegas Strip.
  • Carts fully stocked with beverages.
  • Professional caddie program.
  • Full-service locker rooms.

Cons:

5. Cascata

Most Las Vegas golf courses are situated on a relatively flat part of land with a view of the mountains in the background.

However, Cascata Golf Course is carved directly into the mountains, providing stunning views on every single hole.

Perhaps the most noteworthy feature of this unique course is the 418-foot waterfall that can be seen winding its way through the mountainside from several holes.

Since opening, Cascata has racked up countless accolades and awards. It’s even held the 2nd spot on Golfweek’s Top Courses in Nevada since 2014 (trailing only Shadow Creek).

This one-of-a-kind track has also partnered with Butch Harmon and is the home-base for the Butch Harmon School of Golf!

Details:

Distance From Strip: 33 minutes.

Yardage: 7,137

Designer: Rees Jones

Cost: $399-$499 (dependant on season).

Pros:

  • 37,000 square foot luxury clubhouse.
  • Generous replay rate – $149.
  • Home to Butch Harmon School of Golf.
  • Double Down Package to help you save – learn more here.
  • Unique design is interwoven into the Nevada mountains.
  • Discounts for Caesars Rewards Members.

Cons:

Where To Stay

Alright, now that you know where to golf in Vegas, it’s time to figure out where to stay!

If you’re going to Las Vegas for a golf trip, then you’re most likely going to be staying on the Strip.

And why wouldn’t you? With more than 51 hotels/casinos located on this famous 4.2 mile stretch of land, the fun never ends!

Here are some different options for where to stay based on four different budgets:

The Strat Hotel ($)

If it’s a deal you’re looking for, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better option than The Strat. Rooms here are almost always under $100 and sometimes even as low as $30!

The main reason rooms are such a bargain is because this hotel is located on the far North side of the Strip and it’s a bit of a walk to get to central hotels/casinos like the Belaggio from here.

The most interesting feature at the Strat is the Sky Pod – a 1,000+ ft. observation tower and the second-highest building in the Western Hemisphere.

Planet Hollywood ($$)

If you’re operating on a tight budget, Planet Hollywood provides a nice mix of quality and economy. Not only is it affordable, but it’s centrally located. Just a short walk across the street will take you to the front doors of the Bellagio Casino. Or you can check out The Paris, which is right next door.

You’ll be able to find rooms here for as low as $100 depending on the day of the week and current season.

The Bellagio ($$$)

The Bellagio is the perfect option for those looking for the true Vegas experience of glamour and wealth while staying within their budget. Lining the walls you’ll find upwards of $100 million worth of Picasso paintings.

The Bellagio Casino is my all-time favorite casino on the Strip because of its luxurious European-inspired design and a wide selection of table games.

This resort is one of the largest on the Strip (with 3,950 rooms) and it is located in a prime position in the center of the strip.

Room rates will vary depending on the day of the week and time of year, however, you can expect to pay anywhere from $200 to $400 per night. If you’re looking to save, you can always share a room and split the cost with a couple of friends.

You’ll find the best deals Monday-Thursday but prices will rise for the weekend. If money’s tight, I would recommend staying here on a Wednesday or Thursday, then moving to a cheaper hotel for the weekend.

Skylofts At MGM Grand ($$$$)

Okay. This one is for the high rollers.

The Skylofts at MGM Grand is a AAA-5-Diamond-Rated hotel that spares no expense. In fact, they go thoroughly overboard to provide guests with the most memorable experience possible.

From the infinity tub and plasma TV in your bathroom to a personal butler to cater to your every need, a few nights here will have you wishing you could stay forever.

Oh, and did I mention they’ll chauffeur you to and from the airport in a Rolls Royce Ghost Limo?

For your room, you have a choice between one, two, or three-bedroom lofts.

1-bedroom loft:

  • 1400 sq. ft.
  • 1 king bed.
  • Two-story loft.
  • 3 guests maximum.

2-bedroom loft:

  • 3000 sq. ft.
  • 1 king bed and 2 queen beds.
  • 2.5 bathrooms, living room, social area, and media room.
  • 7 guests maximum.

3-bedroom loft:

  • 6000 sq. ft.
  • 2 king beds and 2 queen beds.
  • 3.5 bathrooms, media room, butler pantry.
  • 9 guests max.

You can expect even the one-bedroom loft to run you $1,000+/night and the 2 and 3 bedroom lofts will go up from there.

If you’re splitting the cost of these luxury accommodations between at least four people, you’ll probably be able to stay here for less than $450 per person per night.

So it’s not completely insane, but it will still take a huge bite out of your budget!

What To Do (Non-Golf Activities)

Of course, you can’t golf all day! Here are a few things to occupy your time when you’re not on the course.

Test Your Luck At The Casino

Las Vegas is the site of more than 130 casinos. If it wasn’t your lucky day on the course, you might just get lucky on the casino floor!

The casino that’s best for you will depend on your budget, however, most offer variable table limits to fit any player’s budget.

From my experience, the best casino for those looking to bet big is the Bellagio and the best casino for those looking for low-limit betting is the Flamingo.

However, with so many options, it’s fun to tour around the Strip and play at a few different casinos and see which one is lucky for you!

Watch The Big Game

Las Vegas is home to the Golden Knights (NHL) and the Las Vegas Raiders (NFL). If you happen to find yourself in the city during the NHL or NFL season, catching a game is a great way to spend an evening.

When I was in Vegas I went to a Golden Knights Game. In true Vegas fashion, there was a performance before the game began and overall it was an enjoyable affair.

My only issue was that, at nearly $20 for a beer, the price for drinks can get a little excessive. But I guess that’s to be expected at any major sporting event.

Overall, it was well worth the price of admission!

A Vegas Pool Party

Cool off after your round by spending the afternoon at a Las Vegas pool party. Many of the hotels on the Strip have a pool and include complimentary or discounted access to pool parties for resort guests.

So what’s it like to attend a Vegas pool party?

Pretty much like what you see in the movies – beautiful people, cold drinks, and plenty of sun!

These kinds of events tend to attract a younger crowd, but hey, if you like pools and you like parties then you’ll have fun here.

Take In A Show or Concert

Vegas is the world’s hub for some of the top musicians, performers, and magicians.

Some of the most popular shows to see in the entertainment capital of the world are Cirque du Soleil, Penn and Teller, David Copperfield, Blueman Group, Tournament of Kings, and countless others!

Also, on any given weekend you can find some of the biggest names in the music industry performing live at one of the casinos on the Strip.

Topgolf

Head on over to Topgolf at the MGM Grand where you’ll be able to smash a few drives off their multi-floor driving range that overlooks the city.

If you’ve never been to Topgolf before, it’s a little different than your typical driving range. Each party gets its own booth complete with a hitting mat, comfortable seating for when you’re not hitting, and a TV.

It’s basically a lounge where you can have some drinks, hit a few golf balls, and hang out with your buddies.

You can even choose from an assortment of games that use microchips in the golf balls and Toptracer technology to track your shots!

As a golfer, it’s pretty hard to beat an evening at Topgolf.

Where To Eat

When you’re swinging the clubs for four hours a day, you’re going to work up an appetite. Here are a few of the best options for meals in Vegas in order from least to most expensive.

Feast Buffet, Palace Station ($)

Google Rating: 4 stars

If you’re looking for a cheap buffet in Las Vegas to satisfy your appetite after a long round of golf, the Feast Buffet is the place to go. Here you can find all of your favorite Italian, Chinese, or good ‘ole fashioned American food.

My only issue with the buffet at Palace Station is that it’s a little out of the way. Located 1.5 miles off the strip, it might be a bit of a hike to get there if you are staying right on the Strip.

Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar ($$)

Google Rating: 4 stars

This is one of my favorite restaurants on the Strip. At Guy Fieri’s Restaurant, you’ll find a selection of classic American finger food like burgers, tacos, wings, and appetizers.

On my first golf trip to Las Vegas, I tried the Bacon Mac ‘N’ Cheese Burger. This culinary masterpiece consists of a juicy patty, gooey 6-cheese mac ‘n’ cheese, crispy applewood smoked bacon, and onion straws, all squished between two halves of a garlic-buttered brioche bun.

To this day it is still the best burger I have ever eaten!

Other popular dishes here include Guy’s Off-Da-Hook Original Smash Burger, Dragon’s Breath Chili, and Trash Can Nachos (tastes better than it sounds, I promise).

The prices here are fairly reasonable. Depending on what you order, you can get a meal for $25 to $40.

Gordon Ramsay Burger ($$$)

Google Rating: 4.3 stars

If you’re someone who appreciates a good burger, look no further than Gordon Ramsay Burger located inside Planet Hollywood. Here you’ll find a mouthwatering assortment of burgers, hot dogs, gourmet fries, and milkshakes.

Any restaurant with the Gordon Ramsay stamp of approval is going to be good but a burger-specialty restaurant? Come on, it doesn’t get any better!

Arguably the most popular burger here is the Hell’s Kitchen Burger. This handful of a sandwich is a fiery combination of aserado cheese, roasted jalapeños, avocado, oven-roasted tomatoes, and jalapeño pesto aïoli.

To cool off your taste buds, be sure to order one of Ramsay’s five different gourmet shakes. My favorite is the caramel pudding vanilla shake complete with a toffee cookie.

Also, you can’t miss out on the truffle parmesan fries, which are made from hand-cut fries, truffle parmesan, salt, and a delicious aioli sauce.

The unique gourmet twist that Gordon Ramsay Burger adds to the classic American burger makes it one of my all-time favorite restaurants on the Strip!

Top Of The World Steakhouse ($$$$)

Google rating: 4.4 stars

If you’re looking for a premium dining experience to top off your Las Vegas golf trip, you can enjoy a 5-star meal while soaking in panoramic Vegas views from the Top of The World Restaurant.

This is a classy sit-down restaurant that serves up some of the best seafood and steak in the city. However, many would argue that the food here isn’t the main attraction, it’s the view!

Situated on the 106th floor of the dizzyingly high Stratosphere Tower, you’ll have a fantastic view of Las Vegas Boulevard 800 feet below while you eat.

Fair warning, meals here aren’t cheap. There is a minimum food purchase of $45, with many of the entrees costing much more. Take the Tajima Wagyu Ribeye, for example, which has a price tag of $80+.

If you’re a self-proclaimed steak connoisseur, you’ll feel right at home at The Top of The World!

How To Save Money On Your Las Vegas Golf Trip

Let’s face it… Vegas isn’t cheap. Here are a few of the best ways to save some money when planning a golf trip to Las Vegas.

Take Advantage of Twilight Rates

Most – if not all – golf courses in Vegas offer discounted twilight rates. Sometimes these rates can help you save as much as 50% on your round!

Taking advantage of twilight rates allows you to play some high-end courses while sticking to your budget.

For example, when I’m planning a week-long golf trip, I’ll typically try and play about six rounds. For these six rounds, I’ll choose three high-end courses and three average courses.

I’ll pay full price for the average courses and twilight rates for the high-end courses. This helps me keep my costs down while still golfing every day.

Book Tee Times With Golf Now

Golf Now is an app that allows you to easily book tee times at more than 9,000 courses! It’s also a great way to find the best deals on golf.

By using the Hot Deals feature of the app, you can find last-minute discounts and rock bottom prices on tee times.

This is because golf courses only have so many tee times available during the day. Rather than allowing these tee times to go empty, courses will offer them at a discount to entice more people to book.

Use Uber Instead of Paying for A Cab

Las Vegas cabs are some of the most expensive in the country. And, if you’re not a local, you need to be careful. Some cab drivers will intentionally take an indirect route to your destination to run up the meter. I learned this the hard way on my first golf trip to Vegas.

Instead, I’d recommend using an app like Uber or Lyft to get you to and from the courses you’re playing.

Not only is it cheaper than a cab but it’s also faster. There are more than 5,000 Uber/Lyft drivers in Vegas and only about 3,200 taxis so you’ll spend much less time waiting for a ride.

You can also choose the size of the vehicle. An Uber XL can usually fit up to six people with plenty of room left over for your golf clubs!

Look for Deals From Your Hotel

Depending on where you stay, you might be able to snag some deals for golf from your hotel. For example, the Wynn Las Vegas has golf packages that include two nights in a hotel, a round of golf, and a $50 dining credit for just over $500.

Considering that a round of golf by itself at the Wynn Golf Club costs more than $500, this is a steal of a deal!

Many other hotels on the Strip have similar discounts for guests and offer golf packages to help you save.

Get Free Drinks At The Casino

Instead of going to a bar after your round of golf and spending money on drinks, you can drink for free at the casino! Most Las Vegas casinos offer free drinks as long as you’re playing their games.

However, there’s no minimum amount you need to spend. You could place $0.25 bets on a slot machine and still drink for free!

But be careful, drinking and gambling can be a dangerous combination.

Ship Your Clubs Ahead Of Time With Lugless

If you’re like me, you get a little anxious about handing off your clubs to a stranger at the airport. It can also be expensive to check your golf clubs on a plane (here’s the cost to check golf clubs on 11 different airlines).

Instead, I’d recommend shipping them directly to your destination early with a service like Lugless.

This will help you save some cash while reducing your stress levels as you watch the baggage handlers “carefully” load the luggage from the window of the plane.

However, if you’re 100% committed to taking your clubs on the plane, here’s a quick guide for how to safely pack your golf clubs for airline travel.

How Much Does It Cost To Play Golf in Vegas?

The cost to play golf in Las Vegas can be anywhere from $30 to $500+ per round depending on the course. You’ll pay less during the slow season (Dec-Feb, June-Aug) and can always golf for cheap by taking advantage of twilight rates which usually begin after 1 or 2 PM.

If you’re worried about fitting golf in your budget for your next golf trip to Las Vegas, remember that there are plenty of golf courses in Las Vegas you can play for under $100. These include:

  • Aliante Golf Club
  • Angel Park Cloud 9 Course
  • Las Vegas Golf Club
  • Las Vegas National
  • Boulder City Golf Course

How Many Golf Courses are There In Las Vegas?

There are as many as 70 golf courses in and around the Las Vegas area, a few of which are located right in the city. Whether you’re looking for an 18 hole course, a par three course, or simply a driving range, you’ll be able to find one that’s right for you.

When Is The Best Time To Golf In Las Vegas?

The best time of the year to golf in Las Vegas is in the spring or fall. This is when the temperature is ideal for golf – not too hot and not too cold. However, expect to pay more for green fees during these times.

The best time to play golf for cheap in Vegas is December-February or June-August. Yes, the temperature won’t be ideal but at least you’ll save a few bucks!

The best time of day to golf in Las Vegas is in the morning because the temperature will not have reached its peak. As a rule of thumb, the cooler the temperature during the day in which you play, the more you’ll pay.
