Golf Advisor's Top 10 Courses in Nevada in 2014

A little inside tip goes a long way in Las Vegas and the state of Nevada. And your fellow golfers on Golf Advisor have delivered. With nearly 4,000 reviews in 2014 of golf courses throughout the state, we have the inaugural ranking of the top 10 golf courses in Nevada as rated by golfers themselves.

The golf scene in Nevada goes far deeper than Las Vegas. Courses from around Lake Tahoe, Reno, Carson City and Mesquite all made the top 10.

The undisputed winner, however, is the 54-hole Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort. Featuring three 18-hole Pete Dye designs, they've all cracked the top 10. The Wolf Course, known to be the toughest of the trio and one of the longest courses in the U.S. from the tips, checked in on top -- proof positive golfers like their game hard.

The top 10 courses in Nevada all scored an overall average of 4.51/5.0 or higher and received at least 20 reviews in 2014.

Las Vegas' best golf courses charge some of the highest green fees in the country. Considering the alternative -- think of how much you could lose at the tables in five hours -- that actually might be a bargain. Leaving Las Vegas without playing at least one round of golf constitutes as a sin in this city, and Jason Scott Deegan offers up the 10 best public-access courses to play on a trip to Sin City.

It's possible this little ditty finds you scooping up the last bit of cranberry pie crumbs out of the tray. Thanksgiving may have passed but the effects of celebratory eating around the table, and also possibly social imbibing during all the various football games throughout the weekend, are sticking with us. To our bellies and elsewhere.
