Located just 25 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, Badlands Golf Club features 27 holes of challenging golf. Practice on the driving range pays off at Badlands, as the golf courses demand accuracy. That’s particularly true on the 6,800-yard Diablo/Outlaw combination, which is set among deep canyons and ravines. Cliffs and water hazards separate most of the holes, and bunkers dot the greensides. Of particular note is the memorable, par-4 sixth, where conservative play pays off, with a tricky shot over a ravine waiting after your tee shot. The golf course finishes strong on the par-5 18th, where a 240-yard drive is needed to avoid getting wet.

    Playing Badlands is a poor man's shot at a US Open type experience. I don't mean that the course is in pristine conditions, long or that the greens putt like linoleum. I mean that with greens small or narrow (or both) and just about every fairway lined by washes made of sedimentary concert, every shot requires that you figure out where you want to hit it, with most shots having a penalty not just left and right, but if you hit it to far as well...

    Overall the course terrain and layout is interesting and unique and kept in better conditions than most public courses. My only real complaint is the pace of play which is slow if there is a group ahead of you - most likely caused by ball searching and trying to figure out how far to hit your next shot.

    It has been said that "nobody who did not know how to fish would be allowed to disgrace a fish by catching him"... Well with Badlands, nobody who does not know how to golf should be allowed to complain about such a unique course...
