Bali Hai Golf Course - Las Vegas, NV

Bali Hai is one of the better courses that I have played in the Las Vegas area.  Located conveniently close to the Vegas strip, Bali Hai boasts some great views of Las Vegas, particularly the Mandalay Bay.  Bryan Curley and Lee Schmidt designed the course to build slowly allowing the golfer to enjoy their surroundings before throwing some challenges their way.  

Measuring 7002 yards from the back tees, the course features a mix of challenging and scenic holes.  The par 4 3rd hole stood out to me as one seriously good golf hole.  Measuring 468 yards with a creek down the entire right side it provides a great challenge, The par 3's were also particularly scenic and fun to play.

Bali Hai also plays host to the final round of the inaugural Golf Digest Invitational.  I happily attended this prestige event and you can find all of the details in the Golf Blog under Golf Digest Invitational.
