    I know Vegas golf is expensive. If I was there with the guys, price wouldn't matter. I'd like to take the wife who enjoys it, but is a novice for sure.

    I'd love to take her mostly for the desert scenery. Can anyone recomend a course that has great scenery for $100 or less per person?

    If you can get on base, I recommend Nellis AFB.

    Las Vegas Paiute. Or drive a bit farther and play Coyote Springs.

    Trust me.

    Or Primm. They are usually a little less.

    Primm always is a good bet.

    Desert scenery.... Arizona, but since you are in Nevada I'd recommend going on golf now and booking one of their hot deals. Primm is usually on there. If you want to stay in town, go with Rhodes Ranch.

    But the "problem" with Rhodes -- and I don't really have a problem with the place at all -- in this application is that it looks and plays like any other Ted Robinson-designed course stuck within a housing development; I swear I've seen some of those holes at Ko Olina on Oahu, for instance, even if the larger native environment outside the project is the Mojave.

    That's one of the aesthetic benefits of a Paiute or Primm (Desert); they're core courses with nothing around them but desert and unimpeded views.

    But none are We-Ko-Pa, indeed. :thumbsup:
