The Las Vegas Golf Insider is writing a weekly golf notebook in the Las Vegas Review-Journal, covering a lot of topics. This week, the focus was on the new helicopter and golf package offered at Royal Links Golf Club.
Royal Links in Las Vegas features 18 holes that replicate holes played during The Open Championship including the Postage Stamp at Royal Troon, the home of the Open Championship in 2016. Now the executives at Royal Links, Maverick Helicopters and some of the top resorts in Las Vegas have teamed up to offer VIP helicopter and golf packages including limo to and from the resort. The $500 fee person includes the golf, limo to and from the helipad, club delivery or rental and the helicopter flight.
A Mandalay Bay executive casino host was one of the first to experience the trip with a few of his VIPs.
“It was really cool for my guests, and they loved it,” Mandalay Bay executive casino host Rick Kozlowski said. “People come to Las Vegas to have over-the-top experiences, and it was definitely that for golf. It’s our job to create indelible memories, and my guys will never forget it.”

About Royal Links Golf Club:
Royal Links was built to honor the rich legacy and tradition of the game of golf. Designed by Dye International, this links-style course features holes inspired by eleven different Open Championship rotation courses, including the “Road Hole” and“Hell Bunker” from the Old Course at St. Andrews and the “Postage Stamp” from Royal Troon. Other courses in the loop include Carnoustie, Turnberry, Royal Liverpool, Prestwick, Royal Lytham, Muirfield and Royal Birkdale. Monuments were erected at various locations throughout the golf course indicating the spots where legendary moments in Open history took place, and a Champions Wall stands near the all-turf practice range as a tribute to the tournament’s American champions.
