BOSTON (CBS) – Hardy gives his hidden golf gems of Las Vegas and sat down with the program director of the Golf Fights Cancer charity, FitGolf owner Dave DuPriest and our buddy Steve Show of Golfsmith in Watertown on the latest episode of The Golf Club.
Hardy (whose real name is Rob Poole in case you were wondering) began the show discussing Sin City, a place where he once called home and now visits frequently.
Believe it or not there is life outside of the Strip — it’s not all just hotels and casinos and drive-thru weddings.
There are a handful of courses located right on the main drag, like Bali Hai and Wynn, with the latter of the two charging $500 greens fees. Not exactly affordable.
Hardy’s got the local connection and knows many hidden gems that the average tourist doesn’t know about — Paiute being one of them. If Hardy’s friends in Vegas knew he was telling you about this locale he’d be in big trouble.
“Paiute is located northwest of the Strip. Door-to-door from Caesars Palace to Paiute is about 25 minutes because you can drive a little bit faster out here than you’re accustomed to. It’s located on a Native American reservation and it’s out in the middle of nowhere.”
Hardy added that it’s like a virtual oasis with not one, not two but three 18-hole championship courses.
“There’s nothing else out there but a gas station, a smoke shop and this big, beautiful golf destination,” said Hardy.
