Golfing the Las Vegas Strip

"South Pacific" meets The Strip: the 11th hole at Bali Hai Golf Club.
Walters Golf

Las Vegas is home to some of the most expensive courses in America, but Walters Golf offers a trio of themed courses that are close to the Strip and easy on the wallet. They're not muni-cheap, but they deliver a fun experience and save you enough money for one more shot at the roulette wheel.

\nBali Hai
This 7,002-yard layout has always been a players' course, with strong par 4s and a cluster of eye-candy par 3s, notably the 9th and 16th holes. Service is impeccable, and firmer turf conditions in 2009 will allow for many more shot options.
$195-$320; 888-427-6678

\nRoyal Links
Royal Links remains one of the least expensive ways to experience a facsimile of Royal Troon's "Postage Stamp" and the Road Hole at St. Andrews. And when you look at the faux castle clubhouse, you'll swear you can hear bagpipes.
$125-$269; 888-427-6678

\nDesert Pines
The pine trees and containment mounds at Desert Pines evoke a Carolinas feel. The contoured greens demand precise approaches, and the brutal closing par 4s on each nine will have you scratching your head at the diminutive 122 slope rating.
$99-$174; 888-427-6678

\nThe Deal: Walters Golf offers one-stop shopping for Vegas golfers through Las Vegas Golf Getaways and Las Vegas Preferred Tee Times, and works with most top Strip hotels.
