    I have golfed Aliante and Los Prados many times but am looking for a new place to try. I want 18 holes that is par 72. Not looking for a par 60 course. My house is North of Sante Fe casino but travel up to 30 minutes is OK. I often book on Golf.now so want to start looking for deals next week when I get back to town.

    Thanks guys and gals

    You can find some good deals for TPC Las Vegas on GoflNow. The courses up at Paiute are nice, too.

    Besides Golfnow, try Teeoff.com. PGA Tour bought "EZ Links" and renamed it. Some good deals on it, too.

    Painted desert is a nice course and in your neighborhood. They also have a terrific deal for locals if you buy their golf card. The offer only comes out a few times a year.

    Paiute is nice and has 3 courses to choose from, and is quite close to that end of town. They have ok golfnow rates, and also 'rebound' rates for second rounds within a week of the first.

    My husband's favorite course is Bears' Best, followed by Paiute - pretty sure he likes Wolf best of the three.

    Tom, I'm not quite as up on Vegas golf as when I wrote the book, but I've stayed current and through that time your best bets are actually arrayed around where you are. First is Coyote Springs, though you would have to bump up that drive time by about 10 minutes I'd guess. Given what Jack did out there, Coyote goes to the top of my anything-but-Shadow best-play list. You won't suffer at all at Paiute, which remains the best overall facility given the number of courses, the diversity of play, the facilities, and value. For me, Snow has always been the more intriguing routing, for the angles presented, risk-reward and the strategic options. Wolf has more guttural appeal. Sun would be the best course at most other facilities. Bear's Best was and remains a top 10 but has lost a few steps over time as the houses moved in and CCA cut back a bit on what was near-Shadow-level service.

    Highly recommend Bear's Best but only with a Golfnow discount. The houses surrounding the course are incredible, lots of edgeless pools. I am a 20 Handicap and it was a very manageable course for me. A stark contrast to Reflection Bay which ate me up!

    And BB had a great forecaddie program back in the day. We asked for Lee every time, he was the bomb. Carried a massive needle and stuck it in you with abandon.

    In LV there's no shortage of casinos or golf courses. Which is best is a question you may get a lot of answers to. I've played most every public access courses (and some of the private). For my money I would go south to Primm Valley or north to LV Pauite. Nice courses at both and good service.

    Good Luck!
