#1: Wynn Golf Club

3131 Las Vegas Blvd S

Golf

Very first class I must say. Everything from when you check in to your exit. More than what I expected, even though exclusive was already expected.
The staff checks you in to the locker room and even cleans your golf shoes before you play your round. They make sure your soft spikes are okay, etc. You can either leave any belongings in one of the locker or keep them with you.
You are then introduced to your caddie (included in the package) who then has your cart and bags ready to go. We had a gentleman by the name of Mitch.  Very well knowledgeable of the course from tee shot to the green. He instructed us where to hit and put the ball, where to aim. He worked hard, also gave us accurate yardage and raked the sand bunkers.
Just keep in mind that the caddie fee is part of the package, but suggested gratuity would be at least $50. Our 4ball tipped him well more than that. He was very good as he deserved it.  Thank you again Mitch.
I could go hole by hole and explain everything.  But you have to experience it yourself. However,  the 18th is a par 3, and depending what tee you hit from, you can win $10,000, $15,000, or even $20,000 for an ace.
Anyways, the 18th is a beautiful looking hole with a waterfall behind it. Spectacular!
Amazing experience and look forward to playing here again.

#2: Boulder Creek Golf Club

1501 Veterans Memorial Dr (Boulder City, NV)

Golf

First off – we came here for a company sponsored event. I only played a part of one of their courses (9 hole) but all the tee boxes, fairways, greens were meticulously maintained.

The ladies at the bar were super friendly and always quick with the drinks hahaha.

I also somehow managed to lose my wallet, with my ID, cards, cash ($200) in it, and one of the staffers picked it up the next day and shipped it back to California for me via UPS…..

I am definitely indebted to the staff @ BC and wish I could’ve been there to buy them a round of drinks! A+ facility and people.

#3: Cascata Golf

1 Cascata Dr (Boulder City, NV)

Golf

Haven’t even left yet and writing this because I love it so much already. The employees are all on it. Super friendly and helpful. The pro shop is absolutely stunning. I was in awe. There’s a waterfall that runs through. It’s flawless by design, cleanliness and efficiency. Ate breakfast at the restaurant. It was delicious and Ron C was taking care of us he was amazing! On it, and very friendly. Would love to come back and have him as our server again!
Now, on the golf course, couldn’t wait to write this review, our caddie smiley is super awesome, funny, friendly and great company on the course. Overall flawless experience and a must visit. ( I hate golf, I usually ride along but Cascata has made the experience extremely enjoyable). The driving range was very beautiful too btw. Real grass and a beautiful mountain backdrop. And the course is gorgeous too. Lots of baby chipmunks!

#4: Canyon Gate Country Club

2001 Canyon Gate Drive

Golf, Swimming Pools, Tennis

The best course Vegas has to offer….. staff are friendly, course is well maintained and even when it’s crowded it’s not uncomfortable with people hitting into you. I will always choose canyon gate over the other nearby courses. They clearly take pride in the course and it shows! Beautiful views and the houses are loaded with yipee pups either!

#5: TPC Summerlin

1700 Village Center Cir

Venues & Event Spaces, Golf

I cannot say enough about this club!! This is the Ivy League of golf club. Shriner’s tournament is played here every year. But members play on this gorgeous TV course all year round.

Membership fee is astoundingly low! And you see  fellow members Inbee Park, Danielle Kang, AN Choi,   Jenny Shin, etc, on the same driving range as the rest of us!

PGA Tour owns this club so you will see PGA tour players passing through as you practice putting shoulder to shoulder with them like in a Pro Am.

Champions players come through as well.

And this club has the best wagyu burger on any high end course in Vegas. Ask for the TPC Summerlin burger on the brioche bun. I get one either just before the round or at the turn. It is to die for and it gives me the energy to play the round in too fashion.

If you are a golf nut, this is the best club in Vegas. Others may have more social events, though this club has a family life style center, huge pool, kids pools and tennis. And I did get to see the Golden Knights last home game on the special shuttle only for us. Bill Foley, GK owner, is a member as is his whole team! I’m telling you, this is the Ivy League!

#6: Shadow Creek

MGM

Golf

I have played here numerous times already on its first year of operation. This is by far the most beautiful course i have ever had the pleasure of playing…. Specially the shadows across the fairways makes almost every hole a signature hole if it were on any other courses…. Fairways was as perfect as as some greens on top end courses. It used to be reservedand comped  for only big time gamblers. Now you can get a stay and play package with some of the wynn properties in vegas like mirage, wynn and etc. for about a thousand, you stay in one of their suites, get driven , dropped off and picked up again to and from the course to your hotel in their limo.

#7: SouthShore Country Club

100 Strada Di Circolo (Henderson, NV)

Golf

Beautiful, amazing and difficult golf course! All the rumors are true, this course boasts some of the hardest holes in town and some of the most breathtaking. I was told to bring an extra box of balls just in case. This is a good idea as here are numerous water hazards and some deep canyons you will not even think about lookin for your ball in.

Upon arrival, a cart pulled up to collect our clubs for us. The pleasant staff was very helpful. We went to the range and there were golf racks to rest your clubs against and a small golf bag full of gold balls and a big bucket of golf tees.

We loaded up with drinks from the clubhouse and began our round. I took numerous photos to show the holes and approaches. After 9, we met back at the club house and they refilled the ice in our coolers and changed the wet golf towels. We loaded up with more drinks and prepared for the back 9. These holes were amazing and at 17 and 18 we met some big horn sheep! Waterfalls, babbling brooks, long forced carries, iPad golf caddies in each golf cart and a few birdies in our group are just some of the experiences we had. Afterwards we enjoyed a couple beverages in the clubhouse and talked about some of the holes. I didn’t burn through a hole box of golf balls, but I was glad I had extras. Beautiful day of un-rushed golf on this private club. Definitely 5 stars for South Shore at Lake Las Vegas!

Enjoy some of the breathe taking photos and if you get a chance, play this course!

#8: Coyote Springs Golf Club

3100 Nevada 168 (Coyote Springs, NV)

Golf

Been playing in Vegas for 10+ years and this was my first trip out to Coyote Springs, certainly will not be my last. 1 hr drive, and worth the trip. No fancy club house, and gas carts, w no gps or any of the flash of other top tracks in the valley, and none of that matters once you begin play. Large and well distanced practice greens and driving ranges .
Hands down most challenging and beautiful, pristine golf  experience I’ve had here. Rolling fairways, undulating greens, every hole a looks like a signature view. Only a few other groups on the course with us, quick play, Perfect. True desert oasis.

#9: Red Rock Country Club

2250A Red Springs Dr

Golf

Compared to what this golf course looked like 2 years ago…this place is incredible! Even though we played on a chilly day with 30 mph winds, this was an enjoyable round of golf. The course is truly in excellent condition and has some of the nicest views anywhere in the city. If you get a chance to play here (its private but they also have the public Arroyo course) I would do it. Really nice and the Superintendent and his crew have done an excellent job!

#10: Eagle Crest Golf Course

2203 Thomas Ryan Blvd

Golf

Today was my first visit to this course and found the course really nicely kept. Par 3 holes dominate this course and you can finish in roughly 3 hours with 4 people in a group. You can either use the golf cart or walk the course. I would recommend using the car during the summer months.

The course has downward slops on either side of the fairway and the bunkers are located where you won’t find your self on the “beach”. It is a great course for beginners or golfers who simply don’t have time for a 4-5 hour outing on the course.

Upon arriving, you will walk down the steps located on the right hand side of the snack shop. You will see the golf carts parked at the bottom. If you don’t like steps, there is a golf cart path just right of the stairs.

I would highly recommend this course.
