There are more than 50 golf courses in Las Vegas, and almost all of them are located in close proximity to each other. Here is a small list of some of the best golf courses:
Shadow Creek Golf Course
It was popularly called Miracle in the Desert back in the year 1989 when it was first showcased by none other than celebrated architect Tom Fazio. It houses the MGM Resorts International Casino where you can place your bets starting with a Casino bonus if one happens to be offered. If you are a fan of Michael Jordon, you will be delighted to visit the Michael Jordon Celebrity Invitational.
Wyn Country Club
Steve Wyn not only created the Wyn Country Club, but he was also the founder of the Shadow Creek. Tom Fazio was brought in, yet again, to create a paradise in the middle of the desert. A 7,042 yard with par-70 course was developed over a space of 137 acres. Needless to say, the end result was mesmerising.
Caesars Entertainment wanted to come up with something equally beautiful and a mesmerising golf course as the Wyn Country Club and Shadow Creek Golf Course. So they went ahead and created Cascata which will cost you $375 approx. to play. Cascata is an Italian word that means waterfall, and there is actually one that falls from atop a 418 feet high mountain. The golf course was created in the year 2000 and cost upwards of $70 million to finish at the time.
Pete Dye, another celebrity architect, designed The Wolf on the outskirts of Nevada, and this is widely considered to be one of the top three golf courses that he ever designed.
Karrie Webb and Annika Sorenstam were called in the year 2001 to the opening of the golf course that is spread over an area of 7,604 yards.
