The Badlands (Las Vegas, NV)

The Badlands is a really hard course. I knew this coming in – everyone told me to bring lots of golf balls – and I needed them. Beware the super-expensive weekend rate ($190 – ouch!) and play during the week ($70) instead.

The course was in excellent condition, although the greens were a touch on the slow side. If you miss the fairway here, you’ll likely need a new ball or a rock club (and sometimes both).

The service was very good and we were able to get around as a twosome in about 4 hours.
