It should come as no surprise that Las Vegas is home to several high-quality golf courses.

Regarded as a premier destination for retired active adults, Las Vegas offers residents a variety of options when it comes to dining and entertainment, not to mention its beautiful year-round warm weather. With such a fun atmosphere, it should come as no surprise that the area includes a number of world-class golf courses to enjoy, each of which offers golfers of all backgrounds the chance to perfect their game.

Read on below to learn about some of the best courses that Las Vegas has to offer.

Cascata

Cascata offers golfers a picturesque course with a 418-foot waterfall.

Aptly named for the Italian word for “waterfall”, Cascata offers golfers a picturesque course where a 418-foot waterfall can be seen cascading above the practice grounds. Designed by renowned golf course architect Rees Jones, Cascata is set in the foothills of the River Mountain Range, approximately 30 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip. This par-72 course is elevated at 3,200 feet above Las Vegas’s desert valley, and it’s noteworthy for the breathtaking backdrops that await golfers at every turn, including views of the Red Mountain, lakes, and streams.

Golfers of all backgrounds are encouraged to try out the course, where they’ll be attended to by Class A PGA professionals, who help with equipment, are available for instruction, and accompany players on the course with a Tour-class caddie. Reservations are available 24/7 and can be found online.

After opening in 2008, Coyote Springs quickly established itself as a course that every golfer needed to play. Ranked No. 4 by Golfweek in a Top 10 Courses You Can Play list, Coyote Springs is located an hour north of Las Vegas, requiring a ride up through U.S. 93 from the city.

Designed by Jack Nicklaus, Coyote Springs is revered for its low-key design, providing golfers with eleven scenic lakes, as well as waterfalls and mountain views. This provides the course with a truly relaxed and calm atmosphere, allowing golfers the perfect space to unwind and embrace their favorite pastime.

The course plays to a par 72 and ranges from 5,349 yards from the forward tees to 7,471 yards from the championship tees. In addition, Coyote Springs also features a high-end practice facility that is spread out across 19 acres and features over 100,000 square feet of tee area, 13 target greens, and a short game green for pitching, chipping, and bunker practice. Plans are in place for the property to expand by 32,000 square feet in the next few years, allowing golfers even more room to practice, explore, and socialize with fellow golfer enthusiasts.

Rio Secco

Next up is Rio Secco, another Rees Jones-designed course that is located 25 minutes south of Downtown Las Vegas. Regarded as a sister course to Cascata, Rio Secco highlights perfect greens and a desert canyon backdrop. The course was first opened in 1997 and designed to enhance playability for both leisure golfers and seasoned pros. Regardless of your skill, golfers will want to check out Rio Secco Butch Harmon School of Golf.

Listed by Golf Digest as their No. 1 instructor, Butch Harmon is an American golf instructor and former professional player who leads Rio Secco’s golf lessons. Harmon has taught everyone from tour pros and amateurs in his legendary career, making it essential to come in and learn from a true professional.
