We visit Las Vegas, Nevada in search of a golf holes you must play during a golf trip to the entertainment capitol, Las Vegas. First, we head out to Bali Hai on the Vegas Strip.
First is hole #15 – Mandalea. This 564 Yard Par 5 is a classic dog leg with spectacular views.
Hit your tee shot over the left bunkers… you’ll be set.
Hit it long right and you’re in a deep bunker – fighting for par.
The approach is one of the coolest looking holes in the world.
Shoot for an eagle with a fairway wood right at the Mandalay Bay and Las Vegas Strip
The green is protected by deep white sand bunkers on the left and front right.
15 is a truly great hole on Bali Hai, (Bali HIGH) an awesome golf experience right on the strip.
Up Next – its Hole #9 at Royal Links Golf Club. All holes at Royal Links are replicas of from famed British Open Course. Number 9 is inspired by #5 at Muirfield Golf Club. (meer field)
A 567 Yard Par 5 is a true challenge of the game. Pot Bunkers line the right side. Get in one and you’ll be lucky to make par.
It’s wise to layup. Then your approach will require an accurate shot.
The green is surrounded by bunkers, you’ll have to step down into the large left side trap.
Birdie is a great score on this legendary linksland.
Back at Bali Hai Golf Club is the stunning #16 named Pacific Rim. This par 3 features an Island Hole with a two-tiered green. Pull the right club as the green is ample, but getting on the wrong level brings 3 putts into play.
Rounding out the top holes in Las Vegas is the Par 3 #17 at Royal Links, a replica of #17 from Royal Troon. This is not only one of the toughest holes on the course, but likely the toughest you will play anywhere.
An accurate, long shot is necessary to hit this green. Miss right or Left and you’re in a challenging deep bunker.
Bali Hai Golf Club on the Vegas Strip and Royal Links, just 15 minutes west of the casinos are two great destinations for the perfect golf destination.
