Walters Golf announces summer rates for tee times in Las Vegas
Golfers who want to play the top Las Vegas golf courses for the lowest green fees of the year plan their golf vacation in the summer months.
"Those triple-digit temperatures you see on the news occur in the late afternoon," said Michael Levine, Director of Marketing for Walters Golf. "Golfers teeing off at first light can enjoy more pleasant temperatures in the mid-70s."
And rates are much less in the summer. For example, Desert Pines Golf Club charges $179 per weekend round in season, but only $99 for a peak tee-time weekend round in the summer. There are also some special offers that make Vegas golf this summer worth a second look.
"We will be offering a sensational rate at our Royal Links Golf Club this summer, " Levine said. "Royal Links features the best 18 holes from the British Open rotation courses and we have two holes inspired by those at Royal Birkdale, the site of this year's Open. We've discounted our summer rates by another 20 percent and golfers can play this terrific course during the week for only $99, versus the regular summer price of $125. And for those serious enough to tee off before 6 am the rate drops to just $80."
That works out to about $4.50 a hole to experience the best 18 holes from 11 different Open rotation courses. Holes like the "Road Hole" and Hell Bunker" from the Old Course at St. Andrews or the "Postage Stamp" from Royal Troon. That could well be the golfing bargain of the century.
In addition to the savings at Royal Links, Walters Golf is offering their Desert Pines golf course for summer rates as low as $29 in the late afternoon or $60 before 6 am. Desert Pines is a Dye-designed touch of the Carolina sandhills in Vegas and is often referred to as the "Pinehurst of Vegas."
And before or after your rounds of golf you can still enjoy all that Vegas has to offer. Savvy travelers know Las Vegas can be a cool place in the summer. The exotic hotel pools, many now with special "European-style" areas, the always air conditioned casinos, shows, restaurants, nightclubs and other attractions also offer summer pricing that makes Vegas more affordable than during peak seasons.
In addition to their Royal Links and Desert Pines courses, Walters Golf offers Bali Hai Golf Club, the only championship course located directly on the famed Las Vegas Strip and recognized as one of the top resort courses in America. For golf outings or group events they offer the Cili Restaurant at Bali Hai, an award-winning gourmet restaurant recognized as one of Vegas' most popular power lunch eateries and available in the evenings exclusively for pre-booked group events of 15 or more. Each of their courses has complete banquet and meeting facilities perfect for weddings, seminars, presentations and entertaining. All have A/V capabilities and their F&B minimums are much less than the hotels. They have a full time event planning staff that handles over 600 turn-key golf outings a year. Group events may qualify for commissions.
