The course maintenance known as "overseed" is when courses transition from Bermuda grass to winter rye grass which can stay green during cooler winter months. Course maintenance teams also use the lack of visitors to complete maintenance projects that could interfere with play.
The close proximity to major Las Vegas resorts, outstanding customer service and popularity among Las Vegas visitors recently helped it earn the "Best Golf Course" award for the 6th-consecutive year by the Southern Nevada Hotel Concierge Association. Bali Hai plays in the shadows of the Mandalay Bay.
The course can play up to 7,001 yards and is a par 71. It is highlighted by 1000's of mature palm trees, water features, and crushed white sand accents and hazards meant to emulate the South Pacific. It is open to the public year round and offers caddy services, club rentals and a full service gourmet restaurant.
The course owner, Walters Golf, also operates Royal Links Golf Club in Las Vegas. Royal Links is to remain open until September 28th, at which time it will undergo maintenance for five days and re-open on October, 4th.
