Golf courses to play in Las Vegas

Hey
Looking for recommendations on what course to play in Las Vegas in April time. Would like to stay within an hour of the strip at most. Budget not an issue.

Price no issue, tough to beat Shadow Creek. I believe green fee is $500 these days, includes RT limo from your hotel. Chance of stumbling upon a celebrity or touring pro. It must take an astounding amount of water to keep this place looking like it does in one of the driest places in the country, but it sure is purty. Get there before Lake Mead goes dry. Located in N. Las Vegas.

Paiute

The Paiute Indian tribe has a great complex about 30 minutes from the Strip. Three 18 hole tracks, with multiple tees on each. Pretty much all levels of golfer can enjoy these courses. It is kept immaculate and tee times are usually available. About $150/round but some searching on discount sites can save you money

The Paiutes have a treaty with the Federal government that gives them the right to use all the water they want. So the golf is great, acres of green grass. Try it.

I played Cascata last year. Got a great deal, $175 a round plus caddies. We had one caddie for two of us, he road on the back of the cart. We tipped him $50 each.
Cascata is the finest course I've ever played. The holes are laid out so each one is in it's own canyon. It's very unusual to see other golfers playing, your alone with your group every hole.
It is a beautiful place, waterfalls, wildlife, green green grass. Not too much sand. But the greens are FAST! Even with the caddy's guidance, my partner and I had over a twenty three putts.
For us it was about the experience, not the score. So we laughed off the putting and just enjoyed. You can too if you don't mind ponying up $500/round.

This is the FT of golf--with 10 million times more snark.

A lot of people don't bother posting in the regional forums, so they do it in the main forum...
