Designed by Lee Schmidt and Brian Curley in 2000, the Bali Hai Golf Club is a worthy namesake of the famous Indonesian land of enchantment. The lush surroundings include seven acres of opulent water features, a total of 4,000 trees, with 2,500 stands of towering palms and 100,000 Balinese tropical plants. Transition and out-of-play areas are accented with Augusta white sand and black volcanic rock outcroppings.
The par 71 course measures 7,002 yards from the tips and affords spectacular views of the Las Vegas Strip's mega-resorts from the fairways. Bali Hai's unique layout includes teasers like #16, a par 3 island green that frequently comes with an audience from the Cili Restaurant patio, as well as #3, a 468 yard par 4 with a creek running the entire right side, balanced with a bunker on the left. Play #3 and find out why it's called "Shipwreck!" Drama and thrills only continue to build as the player progresses through the layout, an "in like a lamb, out like a lion" approach to golf course design.
"We want to give guests an opportunity to loosen up and enjoy their surroundings before we begin challenging their skills," said Brian Curley, legendary golf course architect. "This is a fun course … you'll know you've been tested, but it won't beat you to death. It's the kind of golf course you could play day after day and never tire of its charm."
Challenging play, breathtaking scenery and first class facilities make Bali Hai Golf Club a one-of-a-kind golfer's paradise that Golf Digest named one of the "Top 50 Resort Courses."
