In addition to the plethora of slot machines and non-stop neon, Las Vegas also offers a golfing option, right on The Strip. The TaylorMade Golf Experience (TMGE) is a 42-acre Vegas golf mecca that features a lighted par 3 nine-hole course, along with a 113-stall two-tier driving range. Other features of TMGE include a putting and short game area, and an expansive retail shop.
This 9-hole executive gem is open day and night all year long, and has become a local and visitor favorite. Golfers can practice their short game, and beginners will enjoy the round because the holes are shorter and easier than a full 18-hole layout. The views of the Las Vegas Strip are unmatched. Walking is welcome on the course, but carts are also available. In case you are wondering, the course record is 20!
On staff are TaylorMade Golf certified master club fitting professionals who utilize state-of-the-art swing technology to maximize a golfer’s performance by ensuring they are properly fit with the appropriate golf clubs. To look your best on the course, the TaylorMade Golf Experience also includes a spacious 10,000-square-foot retail shop, which is anchored by adidas Golf. In addition to adidas Golf apparel, other top-selling brands including Ashworth, Under Armour, and Nike, with selections and sizes for men, women, and youth.
The Upper Deck Grille and Sports Lounge feature some of the best views of the Las Vegas Strip, in addition to specialty food including some of the best hamburgers in Las Vegas. The Eric Meeks School of Golf is also available for top-level instruction. Meeks was the 1988 U.S. Amateur champion. The TaylorMade Golf Experience is the perfect spot for special events, corporate groups, bachelor, holiday, or birthday parties. The Upper Deck also features several big screen HD televisions that show the latest golf tournaments and other sports. Large windows allow guests to view the practice range and course in addition to the Las Vegas Strip. You’ll be impressed with the service, which strives to make all guests feel like a VIP.
