Playing a round of golf is a contest between man and nature, much like betting a tree it can’t drink a gallon of milk. Pit yourself against the elements with today’s Groupon: for $34, you get a golf outing at Highland Falls Golf Course at Golf Summerlin (up to a $99 total value). The outing includes:
- 18-hole round of golf including cart rental (up to a $95 value)
- Medium bucket of driving-range balls (a $4 value)<p>
Designed by golf great Billy Casper and course architect Greg Nash, the 18-hole, par 72 Highland Falls Golf Course thoughtfully incorporates dramatic elevation changes with treacherous bunkering to test the gumption of golfers of all abilities. The grassy monolith bounds over 6,512 yards of lush fairways at an elevation of 3,000 feet, challenging golfers to resist the incandescent lure of panoramic views of the Las Vegas Strip and overcome the 10-to-1 odds that the dazzling topography will melt their entire set of clubs. Strategic club selection and a keen eye for distance are at a premium throughout the round, as stark, deceptive slopes complicate basic readings of yardage. Players can warm up with a swing-loosening stint at the driving range. A trustworthy, four-wheeled vessel sails players and their clubs over the emerald waves, expediting rounds for clubbers who have dutifully made prior reservations for their round and arrived in course-appropriate clothing.

Highland Falls Golf Course
The grassy brainchild of golf great Billy Casper and course architect Greg Nash, Highland Falls’ 18-hole, par 72 course blankets rugged, desert terrain with 6,512 yards of pristine fairways. Throughout rounds, clubbers may notice that their drives carry a few extra yards, a product of the dry, thin air—the course perches at an elevation of 3,000 feet—and golf balls galvanized by the electric lure of the Las Vegas Strip, visible from certain vantages across the layout. Careful club selection and a keen eye for distance are critical throughout the round, as dramatic elevation changes complicate basic readings of yardage and legions of sand traps await to ensnare misplayed shots. An onsite driving range helps players find just the right tempo for their pendulous swing, preparing them to play an upcoming round or start a new life as a sentient grandfather clock.
