Las Vegas, Nevada (May 21, 2012)–Jack Nicklaus has strong ties to Las Vegas golf courses. One such tie is being the designer of Bear's Best Las Vegas, a conglomeration of his favorite holes from courses he has designed across the globe. And on May 29, Bear's Best Las Vegas is the home of "The Fastest Round of Golf", the first of several Las Vegas golf events at this course this summer that will raise dollars for Las Vegas charities. All Las Vegas golfers (visiting, local) are welcome for $45. Click now to reserve through the official Bear's Best Las Vegas website. –By Brian Hurlburt.
The Fastest Round of Golf is a part of the ongoing national 2012 ClubCorp Charity Classic. Bear's Best Las Vegas is managed by ClubCorp. This Las Vegas golf event will be played from the Fastee Course tees, a set of far- forward tees designed to keep the pace of play blazing. And according to General Manager Jim Stanfill, the course is the perfect place for a very quick round of golf and/or the change to hone your short game. Charities benefiting are the UNLV Rebel Athletic Fund and Auggie's Quest.
Other events taking place in the next months are The Longest Day of Golf (June 21 played on the longest day of the year), the coolest, hottest Day of Golf (July 24 on the day that averages the hottest of the year), and the DustBowl Open (August 21 and played just before the course goes into overseeding).
Bear's Best Las Vegas features holes from such legendary Nicklaus golf courses as Cabo Del Sol, Castle Pines, and PGA West. Each of the holes is created not only in the way it plays but also with the native vegetation of each locale ie palm trees for Cabo and pine trees for Castle Pines. Official description of the Fastee course: "Look for the Green Bear Tee Marker on every hole, approximately 100 yards in front of the Red Tees near the cart path, to play the FASTEE COURSE™. Measuring at 3,004, The FASTEE COURSE™, is perfect for Juniors, Seniors, Beginners and those looking to improve their short game."
And now to have the opportunity to play this Nicklaus Las Vegas golf course for just $45–and all of the proceeds go to charity–is pretty much a Las Vegas golf deal that can't miss. Each event of the summer is $45. But if you can't make it for these dates, you can still visit BearsBestGetaways.com for information on official Bear's Best Las Vegas golf packages.
