There’s no better place to tee it up at night than Las Vegas. Play golf while the neon lights of the Las Vegas Strip dazzle in the background. There are many positives to night golf in Vegas including good rates, a fast-paced round, and, yes, beverages are always available.
ANGEL PARK LAS VEGAS
Angel Park Las Vegas is described as the “World’s Most Complete Golf Experience.” With two Arnold Palmer courses, a lighted range, a bar/restaurant, patio parties, a pro shop, a putting course and a lighted par 3 course it’s difficult to argue the point. The Cloud Nine par 3 course at Angel Park is lighted and the perfect way to spend an evening. There are actually 12 holes inspired by some of the most infamous greens (Valley of Sin, Postage Stamp etc.) in the world, but only nine are lighted for evening play. Golf Range Magazine recently ranked the course as one of the top short courses in America. You’ll be on Cloud Nine after this experience! angelpark.com
DESERT PINES PRACTICE CENTER
While you won’t get to play actual holes under the lights at Desert Pines, you can visit the two-tier practice center and hit in a climate-controlled environment. There are 56 hitting bays that feature automatic ball machines and protection from the elements. Also available is a snack bar plus views of downtown Las Vegas glistening in the distance. PGA of America professionals are available for lessons. desertpinesgolfclub.com
TAYLORMADE GOLF EXPERIENCE
Golf on the Las Vegas Strip at night is sweetness! The TaylorMade Golf Experience is locally owned and powered by TaylorMade Golf, one of the largest club companies in the world. This facility is the #1 golf destination in Las Vegas and features a lighted par 3 course, two-tiered lighted range, a state-of-the-art pro shop and fitting center, the Flight Deck Bar & Grill and short game and putting practice areas. The course is located so near to the Vegas resorts that it feels like shots will float into the Mandalay Bay off in the distance. Another benefit: the Flight Deck Bar & Grill offers all day (and night) happy hour. Golf Range Magazine recently named this facility Top 50 in America. taylormadegolfexperience.com
