Just when you think Steve Wynn has included every ultra-convenient and stunning facility there is, he ups the ante again with the golf course at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas. Walk around the back of Wynn Las Vegas and you’ll find the 18-hole golf course. Easily accessible from Encore, the 7,042-yard par-70 golf course at Wynn Las Vegas is as professional as the landscape is naturally beautiful thanks to Steve Wynn and architect Tom Fazio. You don’t have to haul your golf gear on vacation to these Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotels, either. Borrow Callaway clubs and FootJoy shoes from the onsite pro shop. Food service on the course makes it easy to grab a snack and a refreshing beverage when you need a break from the sun. Wynn Las Vegas asks that you book your playing time at least 90 days in advance if you’re not staying at either of the hotels, and if you’re a guest at the hotel, call 30 days in advance.
