    If you haven't already played them, Aliante is a pretty challenging course. A lot of people recommend the Paiute courses and the Primm courses. All of them you can book through golfnow.com for under $100. Stallion Mountain would fit your price range, but it is way overpriced.



    You may be able to get Bali Hai under $200, that is a favorite track of mine.

    Monte Carlo is good (played there quite a bit in April, have good slots). Wynn is way overated and away from the good action, the slots are very tight and the area is dead after midnight.



    Unless you are going to play Bali Hai or Wynn, your best bet is to rent a car; otherwise, you'll get killed on taxi fare. (Speaking from experience).

    Some of my favorites are:



    Rio Secco

    Dragon Ridge

    Revere at the Anthem



    These are all in Henderson just 15 minutes south of the strip.



    If you do rent a car then drive 1 hr east to Mesquite and play WolfCreek.

    Probably one of the most visually stunning and difficult courses made.

    These are typically $150-$225 but can typically find better deals going through the discount golf websites.

    get a rental car, taxi fares will be more than the cost of a rental per day.

    TPC canyons

    Rio Secco

    Dragon Ridge

    Bears Best

    Paiute

    these are all nice and great courses but are over $200.00 per person

    Primm

    Tuscany

    National

    Rhodes ranch

    Red Rock

    Siena

    these are all great also and under $200.00 per person



    Palm Valley

    Highland falls

    LasVegas GC

    Wildhorse

    these are fun courses and under $100.00 per person



    the Monte Carlo is a great place, it is very central to the action on the strip and you are in the middle of Ceasers and Mandalay bay and across the street there is alot to do as well.



    Its a great golf destination, and even better night life, if you need any info on the nightlife I will be glad to help as well

    I'm headed out to Vegas this weekend (my first time) for a bachelor party. Staying in the Bellagio, and thinking of playing a Paiute course with several buddies. I'm the best golfer of the group (6 hcp), the others are closer to 25 hcps. Which course would you suggest? I'd like the Wolf...but am thinking Sun or Snow would be better for the other guys.



    Can you rent a car for an afternoon? Where would be the best place to rent the car?



    Will playing in the afternoon be miserable? My only experience with Desert golf was in Sedona...where 100*F felt more like 75*F due to the elevation and low humidity.

    You can rent a car inside the Bellagio and yes it will be miserably hot there in the afternoon this time of year (100*+) Try to play early if possible......just sleep in really late, gamble and party till dawn and then drive to the course and tee-off early.

    It should make for some interesting golf!!

    It sure did for me, played Rio Secco and Reflection Bay back to back days on about 5 minutes of sleep. That was about the dumbest five million bucks I've spent this year. It was so hot my heart started racing, good stuff!
