Highland Falls

You will enjoy the private club-like atmosphere at Highland Falls and Palm Valley without the sticker shock. Highland Falls tends to be the favorite for most out-of-towners due to spectacular conditions, elevation changes and the views of the Las Vegas Strip. Palm Valley is a more traditional layout, flatter but longer, with strategically-placed bunkers and outstanding conditions.  Eagle Crest, an 18-hole executive course, has become a favorite for many locals in the Las Vegas area due to quick rounds and playability, and draws players looking to finish a round in two-and-half hours. Players are often surprised by the unbelievable views of the entire city and the fact that it can play as difficult as any course in town if you choose to play it from the tips.

The manicured conditions and club-like atmosphere of these courses are at odds with the pricing, especially when considering other higher-end, sexier courses in the area; advantage goes to the visiting Golf Summerlin guest.
