Bali Hai Golf Club, located on the south end of the fabulous Las Vegas Strip and in the middle of the Las Vegas action, was recently recognized by Golfworld Magazine for the fifth year in a row. The publication named the golf shop at Bali Hai to its list of America's Top 100 Best Golf Shops.

Bali Hai is best described as lush, tropical golf in the desert. The course, a Lee Schmidt and Brian Curley design, is the home of hundreds of palm trees, exquisite water features, and Augusta-white sand bunkers. The beautiful clubhouse is the home of Cili, a restaurant that has become the place to see and be seen by the Las Vegas "mover and shaker" lunch crowd. Bali Hai Golf Club is owned by Walters Golf.
Other Walters Golf properties include Royal Links Golf Club and Desert Pines Golf Club
The Top 100 Golf Shop honor is one of the most coveted in the retail golf industry. A lengthy application process is involved which takes into account shop revenue relative to physical size and rounds of golf played, photography of the shop, as well as innovative strategies, promotional ideas and initiatives and how they contributed to the shop's overall success.
"It is a wonderful feeling for our entire team to receive this recognition for the fifth year in a row," said Teresa Weston, Director of Retail for Walters Golf (owners of Bali Hai). "And especially gratifying to be recognized for our efforts in adjusting our product mix to target some non-traditional, resort course market segments such as the 25-35 year old and lady golfers."
