*Golfing – For world-class golfing in the desert sun, bring your irons, woods, and putters to Las Vegas. Few may immediately think of the city as a golfing hub, but the truth is that you could spend your entire vacation hitting the links here; Vegas is home to nearly 50 courses from which to choose. It’s such a hot spot that the Rat Pack used to spend hours here walking the fairways, greens, and—yes—roughs, between performances. And even today, the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open is held in “Sin City.”
Some of the more renowned courses are at Badlands Golf Club, which offers 27 holes to play, all against a red rock backdrop; Bali Hali, which whisks golfers out of Vegas and into a tropical getaway with thousands of exotic plants and seven acres of water; and Angel Park, which features a par 70 and 71, and is flanked by beautiful Las Vegas Valley and Red Rock Canyon. Meanwhile, Wynn Golf and Country Club, designed by Tom Fazio and Steve Wynn, is popular for its elevation, forestry, and waterfalls.
No matter your skill level, there’s a Las Vegas golf course waiting for you. Whether you prefer to play in the hot sun or in the cool evening—yes, Callaway Golf Center offers an illuminated par-three course for nighttime play—there’s nothing to hold you back from honing your game to perfection.
