Shadow Creek, Nevada’s top-rated golf course, is known for being unlike any other daily fee layout or casino anywhere. It’s a Tom Fazio-made oasis hidden out of reach of most golfers.

Generally, players must stay at one of the MGM Resorts International property to gain access, and a tour at Shadow Creek includes a limousine ride to the track. The design, which has recently become more popular with many competitions designed for TV and the PGA Tour, isn’t really looking to boost the tours played and boasts green fees that can be as high as $1,000. Golfweek’s top rated residents have ranked it the No. 10 course built in the United States since 1960.

But there are plenty of other public access options around Las Vegas and across Nevada. Keep scrolling to see their best.

Golfweek’s Best offers numerous course rankings lists, with lists of the best publicly available courses in each state among the most popular. All courses on this list allow public access in some way, whether it’s a standard daily green fee, through a resort or by staying at an affiliated hotel. If there is a will, there is a time to tee.

Also popular are Top Golfweek Rankings for the Best Private Courses in each state, and a list of Nevada specials is also included below.
