Surely You Jest - Discount Golf in a Desert?

By: Albert Medinas


At the end of the day, when all the lights are turned off, it is still just a desert. Go five miles or less outside of the Las Vegas city limits and you will see ample evidence of this fact. So, how do they get a golf club in the desert? Feed it tons of water and charge the moon for a single round of golf, that’s how! Is there even such a thing as discount golf prices in a desert?

Now, Las Vegas is not a cheap place to visit anyway - those slot machines and craps tables have a way of calling you in your sleep. Add a modest night of gambling to a couple rounds of golf, and you may have to promise your firstborn to some shady character standing outside the casino. But there is always a way to find discount golf - Las Vegas style!

What exactly do you mean “discount golf Las Vegas style”?

Look, there is one thing that attracts millions of visitors to a city out in the middle of the desert every year, and it sure isn’t the scenery. Las Vegas is what it is because of legalized gambling, and the entire town is devoted to seeing adults have some fun. So, you want to get some discount golf Las Vegas style? Then go with a package deal, where you stay in a hotel that offers golf as well. Several hotels, including the Sands, offer discount golf as a way of enticing visitors to stay - and let’s not forget GAMBLE - in their casinos. And let’s be honest - you know that you are going to lose money gambling anyway, so why not take advantage of some discount golf - Las Vegas style - while visiting?

But what if I am staying at a hotel that doesn’t have a golf course?

Well, there are a lot of package deals that include discount golf at offsite locations. Basically, the hotel gets a price break for driving business to the golf courses, and the hotels can offer discount golf as a perk for staying at their hotel. While packages vary from hotel to hotel and by the time of year, you generally get a better discount golf rate the longer you stay. Plus, by booking in advance, you can also enjoy some discount golf at even lower prices.

So I am not the sharpest tool in the shed…I don’t have a package deal and I never book early….what then?

Well, it could be ugly trying to find some discount golf in a desert, when you are not staying at a hotel with major gaming activities and package deals with area golf clubs. I’m not saying it’s impossible to play some discount golf, but you better get that loan pre-approved so you at least have bus fare home after enjoying a few rounds on the links. About the best hope you have is to visit the city during off-peak times, or plan on playing well into the evening, if you want to get some discount golf rates. As with most clubs, weekday rates are lower than those charged on the weekends. So you have an idea as to the price, you can land a round of discount golf in Las Vegas for around $100. Sadly, however, poor planning will cost you, because you can stay at some hotels for that same amount PLUS get a round of golf in! So, if you want some discount golf when visiting Las Vegas, book early and get in on package deals. Otherwise, well…better bring the plastic.
