    Some courses have shuttles (vans, I think). However, if you're price conscious I would use one of the booking sites (ex. Golfnow) and Uber/Lyft/taxi to get there.

    Angel Park has a shuttle for 6-10 players. You could call and see if you can piggy back on another group.

    Uber is about $15 one way from the Strip to either Spanish Trails or Desert Pines. Both are nice courses fairly close to the Strip. That's the regular Uberx so not sure how it works with golf clubs.

    That is a question I never even considered when I wrote the golf book. It's us damn Californians, we just assume everyone has a car.

    One option is to stay at an MGM Resorts property, pay the BIG freight to play Shadow Creek (M-Th) and they'll limo you out in style; assuming there's no other conflict that day and the course isn't closed to uninvited play.

    I typically approach this matter -- be it golf or just getting to some place new in the valley -- by suggesting that you price a rental car for the day. You can get to any course you want, not just settling for a middling place simply because it is close, and you can add other sites and sights along the way, if interested. (My god, I just used a fare website that popped up on Goggle and it would supposedly cost 100 bucks r/t from the south Strip to LV Paiute Golf Resort.)

    Painted Desert seemed to have a shuttle, but I don't know the details. I've just seen it pull up and dump the players and their clubs.
