Gambling and playing golf have been synonymous forever, but if you’re looking for a truly memorable round, these casino-owned tracks are a lock.
MGM/Mirage’s hangout for high rollers is an Tom Fazio-designed oasis of pine trees and waterfalls. The par-5 18th remains one of the greatest holes you can play.
If the Beau Rivage hotel, a 2008 Golf Magazine Silver Medalist, weren’t so good, you might be tempted to just camp out after your round on this beautiful Southern gem.
This Rees Jones-designed, Harrah’s-owned track is draped across stark mountain slopes and offers occasional Bighorn sheep sightings and a river that runs through the clubhouse.
Architects Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw routed the fairways so that each tee is just steps away from the previous green. The result is the rare walker-friendly desert course — with great views of the Four Peaks Wilderness Area thrown in.
The strength of this Tom Fazio/Jerry Pate design lies in its variety, thanks to holes such as the split-fairway par-4 3rd hole and the long, watery par-4 18th. And for after-round fun, the Pearl River Resort, a 2008 Golf Magazine Silver Medalist, is just down the street.
