Travel bucket list idea:
Bear’s Best Golf Course
Las Vegas, Nevada, United States of America (USA)|www.clubcorp.com
The 18 holes at this public course about 20 minutes west of the Vegas Strip are all replicas of holes Jack Nicklaus has designed in other desert locations – Arizona, California, Mexico and elsewhere. With the exception of the fabulous 18th, the holes aren’t a selection of signatures from the other courses, but as a whole they work quite well together and are a wonderful option to the much more expensive courses around the city.
The setup is straightforward, the staff are really friendly and you get to play (bits of) 18 different Nicklaus courses – all in one day.
When to do it
It’s a public course open throughout the year, but you’re best avoiding the searing summer sun. Twilight rates – between noon-1.50pm (when the sun is hottest) are 75% cheaper, and sunset rates (after 2pm) are cheaper still.
