Las Vegas, Nevada (August 10, 2011)–For those looking for a true Las Vegas golf bargain and deal, check this out. There is an offer for unlimited golf over the Labor Day weekend at the three Las Vegas golf courses of Golf Summerlin, each designed by Greg Nash and Billy Casper. All for a rate of only $85 for golf all four days. Call 702.254.7010 for details or to reserve these Las Vegas golf tee times.–By Brian Hurlburt.
If you aren't interested in unlimited golf for the four days–September 2-5–then you can reserve a single round for just $45. There are two championship, par 72 courses (Highland Falls Golf Club and Palm Valley Golf Club) and one executive course (Eagle Crest Golf Club) at Golf Summerlin. Each are enjoyable and fun to play, and the executive course gives golfers a par 60 golf experience (12 par 3 holes and 6 par 4 holes) that usually plays in about three hours.
Recently, readers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal voted Highland Falls as their favorite and best Las Vegas golf course. Then the editor's of the newspaper gave their opinion of the layout and honor: "It had to happen eventually — Angel Park’s 13-year Best of Las Vegas winning streak comes to an end. Instead, readers fell for Highland Falls, one of three Summerlin courses designed by Hall-of-Fame player Billy Casper and planner Greg Nash. At an elevation of more than 3,000 feet, Highland Falls — designed for golfers of all skill levels — definitely lives up to its name. And if you’re disgusted with your game, the panoramic Strip vistas provide welcome visual distraction. Falling to second place: perennial favorite Angel Park."
The official description of Palm Valley from the website: "Palm Valley is Golf Summerlin’s longest and most challenging course. Mature, gently undulating fairways are generous enough to allow most players to hit with the driver all day, but the deceptively rolling bent grass greens make every two-putt testy. Pine trees line many of the fairways, and 68 bunkers also tighten the course. (par-72, 6,849-yards, rating/slope 71.6/123."
