Las Vegas, NV, June 07, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Las Vegas is a town renown for its themed attractions from hotels, nightclubs, celebrity impersonators and even a golf course featuring holes inspired by the most famous of those from the British Open rotation courses. This year the British Open is on the Carnoustie Championship Course, July 19 - 22nd. If a golfer wants to live the experience and be able to say they played a hole inspired by #15 from the Carnoustie Championship Course, as well as 10 other British Open rotation courses, they owe themselves a round at The Royal Links in Las Vegas.
The Royal Links Golf Club www.royallinksgolfclub.com features 18 holes inspired by 11 different British Open rotation courses. Holes like the “Road Hole” and “Hell Bunker” from the Old Course at St. Andrews and the “Postage Stamp” from Royal Troon and of course “Lucky Slap” from Carnoustie.
The Clubhouse is a castle, with stone hallways replete with golf memorabilia and an authentic Isle pub, Stymies, serving up fish & chips, bangers, Guinness, as well as American favorites of hamburgers, club sandwiches and even a breakfast burrito, something you’re unlikely to find at the clubhouse at Carnoustie.
Forecaddies are optional and add to the Scottish experience, walking caddies are mandatory for those who choose to walk the course. As each hole is a bit of Open history the caddies not only offer traditional services like assisting in club selection, reading the greens or finding errant balls, but also in regaling the history of each hole and location of the 108 pot bunkers, many of which are hidden.
For those to whom golf is a passion and not just a pastime, The Royal Links affords them an opportunity to be transported to a different time and place and immerse themselves in the rich history and lore of the game of golf.
With summer rates ranging from $50 to $125 to play a round, including cart fees and range balls, this may be one of your best bets for the British Open. Of course the very accommodating sports books at every casinos will also take some action on the Open.
The Royal Links is owned and operated by Walters Golf www.waltersgolf.com, which also owns and operates the Bali Hai Golf Club www.balihaigolfclub.com, one of Vegas’ top resorts courses and the only championship course located directly on the famed Las Vegas Strip and the Desert Pines Golf Club, a touch of the Carolina sandhills on the floor of the Vegas desert, often referred to as the “Pinehurst of Vegas.”
