King Putt takes the rigors of an outdoor ground game and translates them into an indoor, glow-in-the-dark experience perfect for any age and weather. The northwest course encourages birdies and eagles amidst a jungle environment of jolly, golf-enthused animals. The southeast locale near Henderson provides an Egyptian backdrop, with Anubis heads and black-lit sarcophagi gracing each stroke.
KISS concerts notoriously rock fans with more than just music: through the years, the band's shows have featured pyrotechnics, dazzling light displays, and levitating drum kits. Golf, on the other hand, has carved out its place as a quiet, relaxing getaway. At KISS by Monster Mini Golf, these two very different worlds clash in a custom-designed, glow-in-the-dark adventure. The indoor experience presents 18 holes of rock 'n roll miniature golf, complete with music from a live DJ and luminous shades of purples and blues that beam around players like lasers at a KISS concert. Away from the course, the KISS-centric fun continues with arcade games, a KISS museum, and spacious rock 'n roll-themed event rooms for hosting parties and unraveling Gene Simmons' tongue when he visits.
Framed by the amber peaks of distant mountains, Wildhorse Golf Club's 18-hole course winds through rugged desert wilderness for 6,525 yards of challenging tee-to-green terrain. Eight ponds loom at the edges of seven holes, including the majestic ninth, where water hazards occupy both sides of the fairway as it draws nearer to the green, luring wayward approaches and contributing to the hole's rating as the course's most difficult. Sands, rocks, and tumbleweeds with dreams of becoming golf balls await misguided orbs in the unsown desert that flanks each pristine fairway, offsetting the course's lack of imposing tree lines.
Imbued with more history than Gene Sarazen's divot-tool time portal, the course counts Howard Hughes among its past owners and was once a regular stop on the PGA Tour, where players enjoyed its beautiful scenery and the compassionate waterfowl that helped earn the course honors as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary.

Junior Golf Academy's experienced teaching staff inducts young golfers aged 6–18 into the lifetime sport's eternal mysteries with a six-tiered kids' golf curriculum. In small classes of 4 to 10 tykes, instructors help beginner and intermediate students learn swing fundamentals and start to develop a short game, absorbing sportsmanlike character traits such as respect, integrity, responsibility, and a firm but friendly handshake. Advanced students begin to work on strategy and advanced shots while continuing to hone preexisting skills, such as properly accessorizing a green blazer. Although not included in today's Groupon, kids can stick with the program beyond the initial month to earn small prizes each time they graduate to a higher level or take out a pesky groundhog with their chip shot.
Staffed by experienced coaches and computers who’ve sworn allegiance to the three laws of golfing robotics, GolfTEC’s motion sensors and high-speed cameras monitor swings and break down each individual’s form on a video display to get results. Sensors chirp with approval whenever they detect the perfect stroke or an especially witty golfing joke. GolfTEC’s certified personal coaches will point out flaws and strengths while providing golfers with tips on how to permanently improve their game from tee to green.
Sister courses Siena Golf Club and Arroyo Golf Club are challenging, but at the same time, approachable for beginners and beautiful destinations for golfers of any level. Recognized for its serenity, Siena frames rounds with views of the Spring Mountains and the Las Vegas skyline. The course presents holes that vary in both routing and pacing. Hole five poses a particularly stiff test, since water surrounds its green on three sides, making it tough for golf balls or misplaced skydivers to land on.
Arroyo Golf Club, meanwhile, sets itself apart in one major way: it was designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer. Like a mailman who wears slippers on his route, the course weaves quietly through the community of Summerlin, and alongside Red Rock Canyon. Amidst these favorable views, golfers take on the course’s challenges, including at the 400-plus yard tenth hole—the first of three holes on the backside that calls for players to launch shots over water right off the tee.
