Play all day at Las Vegas Pauite Golf Resort with unlimited golf and receive half-off rental club sets
There’s no better way to get away from the Vegas Strip for awhile than a day of unlimited golf, and Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort is a top Las Vegas golf club to do so.
I’m particularly a fan of unlimited golf packages, because that’s what I like doing on a golf trip. I like to play until my muscles revolt.
Home to 54 holes about 25 miles north of Flamingo Road on the Vegas Strip, Paiute is currently offering a Las Vegas Paiute GolfAPalooza Special, where you can play all day to your heart’s content from sunrise to sunset. The package also includes lunch at the club.
Pete Dye designed all three 18-hole tracks at Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort, starting with the Sun Mountain course, followed by the Snow Mountain course and finally The Wolf, the longest golf course in Nevada at over 7,600 yards. Through May 30, 2010, rates are $169 and $119 in the summer for GolfAPalooza, with a $30 surcharge to include the Wolf course.
While replays are dependent on course availability, Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort has three championship courses, so chances are you can get out in the afternoon close to when you want to and still get in a second 18. By the time you play golf all day around quiet Paiute in the foothills, the hum of slot machines may have finally left your ear drums.
The GolfAPalooza special also offers half off on rental club sets, which is a growing trend in the business.
I’ve heard some golfers gripe to me lately about the effect baggage fees is having on their away game. Make no mistake, this is something golf destinations all over the U.S. are pretty sore about. Personally, I’m able to avoid bag fees because I have Star Alliance Elite Status, which can be achieved if you fly 25,000 miles a year. If you don’t fly that much, consider an airline credit card. Many of them, like with Continental and United, now offer credit cards that waive bag fees when you book the flight with their card. The offers I’ve seen waive the first year annual fee (after that, it’s $79), but you also earn miles with every purchase and receive other travel rewards. I’d probably sign up for one if my bags weren’t free anyways.
And we should give a thumbs up to the airlines that DON’T have mandatory bag fees to date: Jet Blue lets all passengers check one bag free, while you can check two free with Southwest Airlines. Both airlines fly to Las Vegas from many destinations.
