Vegas Golf Course suggestions

Looking for recommendations on golf courses. Going this summer and would like to pay $100 or less per round. Suggestions?

I haven't used them myself but here's a website that might help

www.standbygolf.com

You can phone up the night before and get substantially reduced green fees at a number of different courses. The website also gives the websites of courses to view.

Vegas golf tends to be very expensive relative to other cities, and quality only so so. If you don't have a car you may be hard pressed to find a round under $100 (and may be disappointed in the quality if you do find one).

The best value I know of is Paiute Resort -- it's 30-40 mins from the strip. They've got 3 courses there, all by Pete Dye. Conditioning is excellent, there is nothing but desert around the property, so it has a great desert, secluded feel. We played the "Sun Mountain" course, which is not the most acclaimed of the three courses, but I found it to be an excellent golf experience, and I will go there again next time in Vegas. When we were there, they had an afternoon rate that was under $100. Keep in mind the wind kicks up in the afternoons there; the desert setting is gorgeous for an afternoon round into sunset.

Closer in to Vegas, I would definitely not recommend the courses at Stallion Mountain if they are still in operation. Royal Links is fun (despite being a very Vegas version of the British Isles), but is very expensive.

Just noticed you are going in summer -- rates may be lower then, but the summer heat is brutal. It may not be a good idea to play in the afternoon as I just advised...
