It literally transports golfers back in time to the birthplace of this great game and is one of the most unique playing experiences in the country. This links style course faithfully recreates legendary holes such as the Road Hole and Hell Bunker from the Old Course at St. Andrews and the Postage Stamp from Royal Troon. Other courses in the loop include Carnoustie, Turnberry, Royal Liverpool, Prestwick, Royal Lytham, Muirfield and Royal Birkdale. Caddies are available and recommended as many of the holes are truly Scottish in design and flair, and have deep, hidden bunkers and hazards. Monuments were erected at various points throughout the course indicating spots where great moments in British Open history took place. A Champions Wall is erected near the practice green honoring American champions of the Open.

    Hit balls in the middle of the fairway all day. The middle was as hard as the parking lot outside the course. Extremely frustrating to drive the ball well, be left with gap or sand wedge and have nothing to hit off. I would have been better TRYING to be in the rough all day.

    I heard they are turning it into a subdivision so the problem will take care of itself. Oh and $150 to play as a tourist. never again...

    Our foursome lost a few balls in the rough, but that is to be expected on a course of this quality. It was in better shape than I expected for this time of year in Las Vegas and certainly much better than the other one I played while in town.
    The service was impeccable from the time we arrived until we pulled out through the gate. We're an average group, but were treated as though we were VIPs.
    I will certainly play this course again the next time I'm in town and would highly recommend it.
