The Badlands is a 27-hole facility on the northwest side of town off of the Summerlin Highway. This fascinating course was built in 1995 and was a collaborative effort between two unique personalities, Johnny Miller and Chi Chi Rodriguez.
Silverton Casino Lodge -- a 300-room and suite hotel near the southern end of the Las Vegas Valley -- combines the comfort of an upscale lodge with the casino gaming excitement of Las Vegas. This golf package includes two rounds at Primm Valley, and one at Mountain Falls Golf Club.
