A recent study by Desert Cab of Las Vegas reveals the average roundtrip cab fare to many Las Vegas golf courses, with Bali Hai Golf Club, Royal Links Golf Club, Stallion Mountain Golf Club, Desert Pines Golf Club and Las Vegas National Golf Club listed as the top five most affordable fares, with an average of about $31. Roundtrip mileage was 17.4 miles at a cost of $41.20. Royal Links Golf Club was designed as a tribute to home of golf, and to the courses and holes used in the British Open. You will feel like you are in the heart of Scotland, complete with a castle-like clubhouse experience.
Not listed in the study are WYNN Las Vegas and Callaway Golf Center, two courses located on the Las Vegas Strip. Only guests of the WYNN Hotel can play on the course, and the Callaway Golf Center is a 9-hole, par 3 course and practice center located at the south end of the Las Vegas Strip.
The starting point in the study was from the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. The nearest course was Bali Hai Golf Club at 4.8 miles, while the farthest facility was Primm Valley Golf Club at 83 miles round trip. View the complete transportation study here.
