These offer unique links, great views, and challenging games to whoever comes to play. Still not convinced that sin city is the place for your next golfing vacation? Here are four good reasons that golfers around the world flock to Vegas:
1. It’s one of the golf capitals of the world – Most dedicated golfers know that Vegas leads the U.S. in its golf scene, and is a world player as well. Numerous U.S. golf pros come out of Vegas and those who hail from elsewhere spend extensive time testing themselves on the Vegas golf courses. It could be said that golf in Las Vegas is more than just a sport or hobby – it’s a way of life. That’s because Vegas has made a point of developing some of the most respected golf courses in the world and supporting the golf community with everything you need to succeed: great equipment, great coaching and great clubs. Add to that the year-round perfect weather and you have the recipe for a golfers’ haven.
2. Packaged Vegas golf trips deliver more value – Heading to Vegas for a golf trip gives you ultimate flexibility and value. You don’t need to know the local scene intimately to make smart choices about which courses to play: your trip organizer can assemble lineups based on your skill level and preferences. More than that, these golf packages include stays at world-renowned hotels, plus transportation to and from the nightlife that Vegas is famous for. A packaged trip can be scaled to any budget and is a great way to experience golfing in Las Vegas while saving big money.
3. There is a course for every play style – Although Vegas is famed for some of its extremely challenging golf courses, not every course in Las Vegas is designed only with seasoned pros in mind. Las Vegas is home to hundreds of golf courses, which run the spectrum from forgiving to fierce. In addition, different play styles will find a home on different Vegas courses as well, from those with massive risk/reward setups to those that demand neck and neck competitive play.
4. Vegas has so much more to offer – Golf is just part of what you’ll experience when you spend your vacation in Las Vegas. From live stage shows and great bands to casinos and night clubs, Vegas won’t disappoint!
