Flying in and Ubering to a course.  I've noticed that Rio Secco and The Revere are pretty close to the airport and strip.  Are there other courses that I should consider that is a reasonable Uber ride from the airport and then back to our strip hotel?

What other courses should we consider in the $100 range?  We are playing the last week of July, if that matters.

I do not want to play Bali Hai.  We are not members of any other course.

Las Vegas National is one of the closest public courses to the strip after Bali Hai. Price is not ridiculous by LV non-resident standards. Old style parkland layout. It's about 3 miles east of the strip.

personally I would consider TPC LV....I thought it was a nice course with a lot of fun/mixed holes.  while you may not get the same like we did, there are a lot of interesting things going on in the surrounding houses

and site of TW's first professional win.

TPC LV and Badlands (I think may have closed) are not bad drives from the Strip.

If you end up at Revere, don't play Concord. I haven't played Lexington so I can't comment. However a friend and I played Concord in March and it did almost nothing for us.

Would definitely consider TPC LV or even better Reflection Bay. We ubered to Reflection Bay from Planet Hollywood when we went and it was well worth it.

I am leaning towards Rio Secco.  Is that place acceptable?

I liked Rio Secco the best of the three I played. I also played Angel Park and LV National.

Rio Secco is a hike from the strip, uber will be $50+ round trip.  It's a beautiful course though.

I would recommend either National, Royal Links or Spanish Trails for proximity to the strip.

^ Yeah I forgot about Spanish Trails, I would recommend that one. It's now a semi-private club that offers some public times on golfnow with hotdeals well under $100. I played it back in February. Did the Canyon and Lakes nines first, conditions were excellent, pace was fine, numerous holes I found interesting and challenging. By the time I finished the first 18 in the afternoon, the third nine (Sunrise) was wide open and they let me play it for $20 or something, it is more of a parkland style layout on that nine and a bit easier than the other two I thought.

It was maybe 15 minutes from MGM Grand on the south end of the strip.

If you can go to Paiute and play the Wolf course.  Probably the best conditions inn Vegas in the middle of the Summer.  TPC Vegas is a great layout.

Rio Secco is one of the best courses in Vegas, they renovated it last summer with new greens and better playability, it's one of the toughest courses in town. It's not that close to the strip but about the same length away as TPC Las Vegas.

Can't go wrong with either Rio Secco or Paiute.
