Where to Golf This Fall in Las Vegas: 2017 Edition
With the crazy summer heat now in the rearview mirror, there’s hardly a better time to get outside and hit the links here in Las Vegas. As a destination for retirees, tourists, and just about anybody looking to escape the cold once-and-for-all, we’re lucky to have some of the best golf courses and golf course communities in the country situated right here in our own backyard.
So, regardless of whether you just moved to Las Vegas or only happen to be visiting for a weekend, here’s a quick look at some of our favorite places to get out and play:
Reflection Bay Golf Club
Neatly positioned within the resort-style community of Lake Las Vegas, Reflection Bay is a prestigious Jack Nicklaus Signature Designed course, which happens to be the only one of its kind in all of Nevada. Countless publications and websites such as Golf Magazine and Golf Digest have recognized the Reflection Bay Golf Club as one of the best in the U.S., and the lavish 32,000 square foot clubhouse there is also spectacular in its own right.
Wynn Golf Club
Designed by Tom Fazio and Steve Wynn, this 18-hole, par-70 course is actually the only course in all of Vegas that’s attached to a resort on the strip, which certainly makes it unique. And while it may be on the pricier side, it’s also one of the more lush and beautiful golf courses you’ll find not just in Las Vegas, but pretty much anywhere.
Bear’s Best Golf Course
While Bear’s Best Golf Course in Las Vegas might have an upscale, private-club-like look and feel, it’s actually a public facility that features a fabulous Jack Nicklaus course and reasonable greens fees that easily help make it a top choice for any golfer at any level. The design is simple yet challenging, and it’s also great spot for hosting just about any private event, wedding, banquet, or office party.
Rio Secco Golf Club
Widely thought to be one of the toughest golf courses in the Las Vegas, area the Rio Secco Golf Club in Henderson has been a local favorite since it opened back in 1997. The course itself was designed by Rees Jones, and for our money, it also offers some of the best views of the Vegas skyline of any course in town. And as an added benefit, it was also just renovated this year,adding a new element to even those who are most familiar with how it plays.
