Missed your invitation to play in the British Open? Not to worry. You can still play 18 of the best holes from 11 different British Open rotation courses, including two holes from this year’s British Open; Royal Birkdale #6 and #10. Better still, they are all on one course located less than 9 miles from the heart of the Las Vegas Strip.

This is not your typical round of golf, and whether you are into the history of the game or just want a shot at Tiger Woods course record of 67 (Feb., 2001), Royal Links will provide you with some great golfing memories.

Royal Links Golf Club was built to honor the rich history and tradition of the game of golf. Designed by Dye International, this links-style course features holes inspired by eleven different British Open 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 great moments in British Open history took place. A Champions Wall is erected near the all-turf practice range honoring American champions of the British Open

Golfers may choose to engage the services of a professional forecaddie adding to the “Scottish” experience. These forecaddies are knowledge about the history of each hole, as well the location of the 108 pot bunkers, some of which are hidden. Walking caddies are also available and are required for those who choose to walk.

Royal Links was recognized as the “Best Course in Las Vegas” in the 2006 Review Journal “Best Of Vegas” poll and one of “America’s BEST Courses” by GolfWeek.

Located less than 20 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, the castle-style clubhouse hosts a Golf Shop, which was ranked as one of “American’s Best 100 Golf Shops” in 2004 & 2005 by GolfWorld Business. It is stocked with name brand apparel, equipment, quality art and collectables. The shop also offer rentals of Callaway Clubs and FootJoy shoes

Also within the castle is Stymie’s Pub, an authentic re-creation of an isle pub complete with antiques and serving traditional fare like fish and chip and bangers, as well as breakfasts, salads and sandwiches. On-course beverage cart service is also available. An English style call box is available at the 9th tee providing golfers the opportunity to order lunch as they make the turn, or to have lunch delivered to them on the course.

To add a little gaming excitement to the round, Royal Links offers a “Beat The Pro” challenge for all golfers who can test their skill against course personnel on a Par 3 closest to the hole contest for merchandise credit in the golf shop.
