LAS VEGAS, Nev. (March 11, 2019)–When Daylight Savings Time hit in 2019 in early March adding an hour more of daylight–and in Vegas that usually means plenty of sunshine–golfers everywhere rejoiced because the golf day is now extended. At the historic Las Vegas National Golf Club they are putting “Savings” to a whole new meaning and, well, what are you waiting for … you’re on the first tee. –By Bill Bowman, Las Vegas Golf Insider staff.
The spring season for rates runs March 8-June 2, 2019, at Las Vegas National and with the added time during each day, loyal local players can tee it up for as little as $29 with a 9-hole tee time after 2 p.m. while visitors to our great city can play for as low as $49.
“We have great afternoon specials,” said Joe Kelly, director of sales and marketing. “There’s plenty of daylight to play and we offer great value for your dollar.”
With a new trend seeing more and more golfers opting for a 9-hole experience, those rates can be great for time and the wallet. Check with the pro shop for available tee times.
Las Vegas National Golf Club, designed by Bert Stamps, is a par-71 layout that’s catered to locals and visitors since opening its doors in 1961.
