  • Interesting layout in top condition. Challenging and the hire clubs were excellent. Good spot for a drink after the game. Great place to escape the hussle of Vegas for a few hours. 
  • We played Bali Hai on July 21st while in Vegas with some friends. I'm a single digit handicap and enjoy playing nice golf courses. GOLF COURSE: For it to be July and temperatures well over 100 degrees...  read more »
  • Played this course in the afternoon at around 100 degrees. I had a 2:30 tee time but when I arrived I was able to go out early. The course was in fantastic shape and I played in around 3 hours. Greens...  read more »
  • First this is a late review I played the course in July 2016, with that said I'll begin: fairways were greens were manicured perfectly. The greens rolled smoothly and I was lucky because the front desk told me that I would be the last person on the course for the day due to the aeration taking place later. But anyway , the greens and fairway were great. The practice range was more of a driving net or cage but the great part about it was the balls fed the tee automatically. With the heat and the dryness of the air that was great, barely worked up a sweat at the range/cage. The amenities were great with water bottles / troughs scattered around the course and the cart person driving the beverage cart continuously throughout my round. This was the first course I have ever played at where I didn't say to myself "where is the beverage cart at?". The course had plenty of challenges and the various lengths of the course made it challenging. Very scenic and reminded me of the course in Hawaii.
  • Nevada's Congressman arrives to Las Vegas, he meets people at the Bali Hai Golf Club for lunch at Cili's Restaurant. The Secretary of State is asked to speak in Southern Nevada. She receives a warm greeting at Cili's inside the Bali Hai Golf Club. I always look forward to lectures given at the Bali Hai Golf Club.
  • Nice, quiet course that is well maintained. Wide fairways and fast greens. The south pacific feel if the clubhouse is a nice touch. The 16th island green is a terrific challenge.
  • We played and as we made the turn it started pouring rain, looked over and our luggage was sitting outside. Everything soaking wet, spent over $250 at Aria getting clothes cleaned to wear and Bali Hai staff has done absolutely nothing to rectify...really, really diaappointing
  • Bali Hai is a genuinely great golf course. It isn't cheap, but it is not the most expensive course in the area and the staff is very attentive and tries hard to serve your every possible need. Land area for the course was apparently limited when it was built, so the driving range is only about 50 yards long and enclosed with netting. Although this is less than ideal, you can hit as many balls as you wish and this is included with your greens fee, and they use an automatic tee machine, so you can play one shot after another quickly. The course itself is verdant green with elevations, dips, rolls, doglegs etc., and the layout was well thought out so both holes 9 and 18 end right near the club house. In between the fairways and along the outer edge of the course they utilized raised sand dunes with some flora, and this is enough to keep all but the most errant of shots reasonably within the fairway you are supposed to be playing, and the grass is so well maintained that you rarely have a bad lie. The scenery with the mountains in the background and all the plants is stunnin and I could not help but think as I made my way around the course, how lucky I was to be there in this beautiful environment playing a game that I love. It is an average to modestly challenging course, just right when many duffers are no doubt a large percentage of your customers, and not very difficult, so as long as players choose the correct tees for their skill level, it should be an enjoyable day for everyone. Understand, that means if you are a male player with an average or better swing speed, , you should only play the back tees if you are a single digit handicap. Unless you are under a 15 handicap or so, don't play the gold tees either, but move up to the next set of tees. DO NOT SLOW UP PLAY BY CHOOSING A TEE THAT IS TOO DIFFICULT FOR YOUR SKILL LEVEL. This only leads to frustration for you and every golfer behind you who will need to wait for you to take the extra 2 to 4 shots per hole you will need to finish them. Golf is not an easy game, so give it the respect it is due, and don't play tees you have not yet earned the right to be on. This will make everyone happier in the end. I am not saying this occured here when I played but it shouldn't hurt to remind people about this. In any event ,the greens here for the most part are in really good shape and quite fast compared to most, but I expect them to be that way at all quality golf courses. I must agree however, that as many before me have already expressed, the major drawback to this course, is the inadequate level of sand existing in the bunkers. As you are not allowed to ground your club in a bunker you can never be certain what level of sand exists, and therefore to be a fair punitive area on the course, it is absolutely imperative that several inches of loose sand be maintained in each of the bunkers, rather than having players clubs skid off the hard as rock surface just a couple of centimeters below, causing the player to scull the shot, and endangering everyone in the vicinity. For the most part I found that the bunkers on this course were too shallow with the loose sand, and this did cost me a couple of strokes, so I altered my usual super agressive go at the pin at all times shot selection, to one that was more conservative and designed to keep me away from the bunkers, and I was mostly successful in doing so. The course was almost empty the day I played (Thanksgiving Day) and so I was able to play in under 4 hours which I really love because you do not need to wait around for long periods of time before you take your shot. It is also easily the most accessible course around as it is so near the strip, unlike most which are generally a few miles away. All in all it was a great experience, I recommend it particularly if you are just here for a day or two and wish to play as the staff is very accomodating, and of course I would happily return here to play anytime that I visit Las Vegas.
