Bali Hai, Royal Links Golf Clubs make for great Las Vegas combo
A common question I get from readers headed to Las Vegas is an obvious one: Where should I play?
Simple enough, right? The thing is about Las Vegas is that depending on your budget and tastes, I could give so many answers, but taking none of that in consideration, two courses always come to mind for me – Bali Hai Golf Club and Royal Links Golf Club. The reason is because they’re so uniquely Las Vegas.
Fortunately, for golfers, they’re owned by the same company – Walters Golf, which means there are deals that will let you play both of them. Stay-and-plays, combination packages, even great twilight rates make both of these courses fairly affordable. But back to that in a minute.
What makes them so uniquely Las Vegas is their uniqueness. Bali Hai gets the nod because of its location and theme. Royal Links gets it on theme and atmosphere. Together they make a most enjoyable combo.
Bali Hai is located right next to Madalay Bay on the Strip, which puts it right in the middle of the action. So if you’re staying on the Strip, you don’t have to go far to check out this Pacific island-like course that features plenty of water, pristine white sand bunkers and impeccable conditions. Plus, you can take a caddie or forecaddie and stick around for a great meal and drink at the Cili Restaurant and Bar.
Royal Links is what you might expect from the name – a collection of holes paying tribute to all the great British Open holes. So yes, you can play St. Andrews, Royal Troon and Muirfield, just to name a few. Plus, I love the Scottish castle-style clubhouse.
And there’s another wrinkle at Royal Links and Bali Hai – the ParMates caddies. This optional service pairs golfers with beautiful women, who cater to golfers’ needs while on the course. Only in Las Vegas, of course.
Golf packages for the two courses start as low as $169 with stay-and-play as little as $199. For more information or for reservations, call (888) 427-6678 or visit WaltersGolf.com.
