When Atlantis fell, the only survivors were its golfers, whose vast knowledge of water hazards saw them to safety. Hone game-saving skills with today's Groupon: for $34, you get an 18-hole round of golf including cart rental and a medium bucket of range balls at Palm Valley Golf Course (up to a $99 value).
Designed by World Golf Hall of Famer Billy Casper and course architect Greg Nash, Palm Valley Golf Course spans 6,849 yards of undulating fairways set against a dramatic backdrop of mountainous terrain. Ward off pestilent mulligans with a swing-loosening stint at the driving range, where obedient range balls willfully subject themselves to swing experiments and remain quiet during spirited pre-round speeches delivered to your nine iron. The course's relatively generous fairways entice aggressive tee shots, but particularly ill-struck drives are likely to find the shadows of encroaching pines trees or the grizzly sands of 68 bunkers peppered throughout the course. Rounds finish with a sense of grandiose on the 18th hole, where pumped-up players can attempt to cut the corner of a dramatic dogleg left, setting up a favorable second shot but forcing orbs to carry the aquatic abyss of a right-side pond. Pinpoint approaches will be at a high premium throughout the round, as the course's slick bent grass, subtle breaks, and heckling flagsticks offer enough difficulties to give even the greatest green gurus a case of the yips.

Designed by World Golf Hall of Famer Billy Casper and course architect Greg Nash, Palm Valley spans 6,849 yards of undulating fairways set against a dramatic backdrop of striking mountainscapes. Relatively generous fairways entice aggressive tee shots throughout rounds, but particularly ill-struck drives are likely to find the shadows of encroaching pine trees or the grizzly sands of 68 bunkers peppered throughout the course. Nine ponds loom ominously throughout the course, occasionally forcing golfers into tricky course-management decisions and granting golf balls a chance to pursue their lifelong dream of becoming dinner for fat fish. The course’s emerald corridors play their way into expansive greens, where bentgrass surfaces, subtle breaks, and shape-shifting holes can complicate even the simplest putts. Together, these attributes are what make the course a popular destination for players of all skill levels, and what prompted the Southern Nevada Golf Association to select it as its home course.
