My wife and I are planning a trip to Vegas in September and I would like to play a round of golf when I am there. Can anyone recommend a few courses to try. I've only been playing for the last five years and shoot around 105 so I am leery of some the championship courses that are advertised (like the Bali Hai and the Royal Links).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Play from the ladies tees....just kidding. Executive courses may be the ticket. Google Executive Golf Courses L.V.....I'm sure you know that...

There's a site called golfnow. You can save money here and find a decent course.

Even with a high cap, I would much rather play a professional course over a public course.

I recommend Angel Park out by my house. It is somewhere between a public course and the really fancy courses like Shadow Creek. They have two 18-hole courses and one 9-hole.

I play with a few old guys that kinda suck. I suggested they play from the ladies tees. They would always respond "No way I'm hitting from the f'ng ladies tees."

Then the course added a new set of tees they call "scoring tees." They are placed 1-2 yards behind the ladies tees. Of course, all these dudes play them now.

I play about at the same level and I enjoy Rhodes Ranch, Legacy, Highland Falls and a few others.

The PGA is promoting 'Tee it Forward' an idea designed to speed up play. Golf courses are too tough for 90% of players. 90% of players are hacks. Back in the day if a guy couldn't advance the ball past the ladies tees he had to pull down pants before playing next shot.

I am a slightly better golfer than you, and worse some days judging by the score. Anyway I found Royal Links very enjoyable and pretty wide open. Now I would avoid Desert Pines if you dont hit it straight.
