ROYAL LINKS GOLF CLUB
WELCOME TO ROYAL LINKS GOLF CLUB
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.
THE SOUL OF SCOTLAND, THE ADVENTURE OF LAS VEGAS
Legends have walked these same hallowed holes. Create your own Claret Jug moment and relive history at Royal Links Golf Club, an unrivaled union of fabled holes – like the “Postage Stamp” at Royal Troon and the “Road Hole” at St. Andrews – from the Open Championship’s eleven world-famous courses. This once-in-a-lifetime and, for many, life-changing golf experience can become a reality without a trip across the pond: It only requires a passion for the game and a quick, five-minute jaunt from the famed Las Vegas Strip.
Experience The Open Championship Only Minutes from The Las Vegas Strip
Imagine two very distinct worlds combined: The heritage and history of Scotland blended with the glamour and glitz of Las Vegas. With a creative mixture of eleven Open rotation courses all in one convenient place, true golf enthusiasts are offered a rare glimpse into the legacy of the game and championship history without an expensive, extensive trip spanning numerous days and several countries. And though Royal Links may seem mythical and timeless, the beloved excitement of the city isn’t sacrificed. You’ll have a chance to challenge our pros on a par-3 for “closest to the pin” bragging rights and golf shop merchandise credit. For an entertaining twist on tradition, our young ladies of the ParMates caddie program are available to add a bit of unexpected fun and a unique flair throughout your round, too! And with our available Callaway XR rental sets, you’ll have a shot at hitting the cutting-edge sticks seen in the bags of touring professionals!
Explore an Authentic Castle-Style Clubhouse
While you may believe you’re experiencing the past in a distant land upon entering the gates to our castle-turned-clubhouse, you’ll be at one of closest courses to the Las Vegas Strip and less than 20 minutes from its famed, futuristic ambience. With Swilcan Bridge and a statue of Old Tom Morris just outside its massive doors, the clubhouse’s hallowed halls honor the game’s home as much as the course itself: You’ll delight in the same rich stylings and authentic atmosphere that greet those vying for the Claret Jug from the very moment you enter. A grand selection of treasurable merchandise is available in our top-rated golf shop, along with a cherished scroll featuring the signatures of the many players who’ve tested their skills here. Among them? Three-time Open champion and owner of our course record, Tiger Woods. Since the castle would be incomplete without genuine Scottish-style fare, Stymie’s Puboffers a modernized setting to sip ice-cold Guinness and indulge in Shepherd’s Pie while watching the latest sporting events.
Royal Links Golf Club Maintenance Schedule
Let’s talk about the 11 courses of the British Open rotation. They’re legendary. They’re fabled. They’re part of the game’s rich history. And, as such, they’re incredibly maintained to ensure a world-class experience for pros, amateurs and golf enthusiasts alike. Across the pond, the characteristics of the courses are quite unique and are significantly different than courses you may be used to here in the United States. Now imagine transplanting 18 of the best holes from Scotland and England across the world to the desert climate of Las Vegas. To honor the heritage of these courses at our very own Royal Links Golf Club, we uphold the same standards when it comes to maintaining our pristine fairways and greens.
A Message From Our Course Maintenance Staff:
We perform our seasonal maintenance to maintain the health and playability of our putting surfaces, and to maintain our commitment to providing the best golf course conditions to our guests year-round.
While there are no upcoming aerification procedures scheduled, we realize this process may be an inconvenience affecting dates of play. Aerification, though, is crucial in maintaining the pristine state of our turf, as it allows oxygen to reach the deep, healthy roots beneath the surface. Once the fairways and greens have healed, you’ll enjoy optimal playing conditions that benefit both your score and your Open experience.
As with aerification, there are no upcoming overseeding procedures at Royal Links Golf Club. To ensure our course’s turf is tour-level tournament-ready and to repair any wear caused from golf cart usage, we overseed in the latest months of summer so our fairways and greens are as exquisite as those you’d see across the pond year-round.
We strongly recommend enhancing your round with our traditional caddies and forecaddies. Without the help of a seasoned looper on your bag to enlighten you with championship history and offer insight that’ll save you strokes, you won’t be experiencing the centuries-old sport the way it was truly intended to be played.
To make your British Open experience stress-free with a low score, we’ll provide you the option to rent the cutting-edge equipment that’s seen in the bags of globetrotting pros for a minimal fee: Top-of-the-line Callaway Golf XR clubs, available in multiple configurations to suit your individual playing style.
Lockers and Shoe Service
Consistent with the timeless traditions still held at high-end courses around the world, Royal Links Golf Club offers a refined locker room to store items during your round and services to tidy your messy, grass-filled golf shoes after you finish. Should you opt to leave your own kicks at home along with your clubs, FootJoy golf shoes are included in each fully-stocked rental set.
Nearly every tournament-winning and record-breaking professional golfer has an expert in the art of the golf swing as a part of their entourage. Led by Mike Davis, the Walters Golf Academy offers a fully-grassed range and an excellent place to learn how to execute shots the way a big name vying for the Claret Jug would: Golf Magazine recognized Mike as one of the “Top 100 Teachers In America.”
Fresh fish and chips. Delicious bangers and mash. Chef’s famous Shepherd’s Pie. The popular “Royal Birkdale” burger. And, of course, ice cold Guinness and Newcastle on tap. Add in the fact that you’re dining in a clubhouse-turned-castle (and that you can place your order at the turn in a phone booth that appears to be transported from across the pond), and you’ll forget the fact that you’re not in Scotland – you’re in Las Vegas!Learn More
If you’re going to play the same holes as the professionals, you may as well look like one! Indulge in our high-end shop filled with the finest and newest in golf gear, including apparel, equipment, accessories, sundries and unique gifts, to take home a piece of Open-inspired nostalgia you’ll treasure for years to come.
