I don't mean to derail the thread but when you consider the economics of Clark County and the water restrictions I don't see how the community can sustain more than 75% of the courses in existence today.

On the other hand the county IS growing again, and new residential development is up slightly.

The other issue is that these courses charge so much for out of towners to play. I remember seeing Legacy charging like 120+ for out of towners. A lot of places I have been, charge you maybe like 10 bucks more or something to play if you aren't a resident. It's pretty ridiculous.

I worked at The Badlands back in 2003. Rack-rate for out of towners was $190. I had just moved here from Hawaii and couldn't believe that I was ringing up nearly $800 for a foursome. I think Wailea Gold and Emerald was $120 for tourists.

So where is a good place for visitors to play that won't cost a fortune in green fees? Bringing my 86 year old dad out for a vacation in September and we'd like to get a round in, but would like to keep it to $75 or under. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Per person, I'm assuming?  At that time of year not a whole lot. Mind you, I'm just thinking rack rate to be safe. I don't know for sure how the discount sites may be that time.

Off the top of my head though:

Angel Park
Aliante
The Primm courses
Mountain Falls in Pahrump
Revere
Rhodes Ranch
Stallion Mountain
Highland Falls

I was going to say Bali Hai but I seriously doubt it for that time of year unless a discount site.

You'll get varying opinions of how nice courses like that are. I have very low standards.

All good suggestions, but Stallion is usually in pretty rough shape. Highland Falls is so-so.

Spend a little extra money and play Paiute. It's worth it.

This course is scheduled to re-open on October first. Green fees will probably be a bit high but the conditions should be amazing with 3 months of no play.
