If you can't win at the tables, you can bet that you will certainly win at golf in Las Vegas. Just as Las Vegas has attracted the world's best entertainers, chefs, and gamblers, you'll find that Las Vegas has also attracted the world's best golf course designers and architects. Since the 80s, the number of courses has quadrupled in this city where you can eat the best food, see the best shows, and now play the best golf. We will feature a few of our "can't lose" picks for places to enjoy the best courses in Las Vegas.

Featured Places to Play Golf in Las Vegas

Pete Dye designed another beauty when he added the Wolf Course to the Paiute Golf Resort. This place to play golf in Las Vegas is long with a capital "L." If you're brave enough to play from the tips (the tournament tees) you'll be smashing them a tremendous 7,583 yards! Five par fours measure out at over 485 yards from the tips so if you don't have a driver like Woods or Daly, take another tee. But novices as well can play here since there are five sets of tees and nice landing areas to catch your drives. This place to play golf in Las Vegas isn't cheap though. But if you are a gambler, ask the pit boss for a comp to play here, it's worth it.

This is another expensive place to play golf in Las Vegas, but the Lexington Course at Revere at Anthem Golf Club is certainly worth a visit. This course was designed by the legendary Billy Casper and architect Greg Nash to inspire your sense of awe and test your ability to play the game. With elevation ranges of over 400 feet, black tees measuring out at over 7,100 yards, and a slope of 139 you have to be awfully good to play from the tips. Yet they have created four sets of tees so the breathtaking beauty can still inspire the average golfer and finish the 18 holes with some dignity preserved.

No matter what your desired course contains or costs you will find such a course in Las Vegas. With prices ranging from $60 to $300, you can find any level of amenities. Other courses that we recommend in Las Vegas are Bear's Best, Badlands Golf Club, and the Siena Golf Club.
