Golf Trip To Vegas - Warm Up At The Callaway Golf Center
By Brian Weis
When planning a golf trip to Las Vegas consider warming up at the Callaway Golf Center. Located just minutes from McCarran International Airport, the driving range and par three course is an ideal place to loosen up or fine tune your game before tackling the many tour calibre courses Vegas has to offer.
"The Divine Nine," is a championship par 3, nine-hole course that will test your short game play. Standing on the tee boxes, you won't be intimidated by the distance with holes ranging from 110 to 185 yards. Precision, however, is needed to avoid the sand bunkers, fairway lined mounding and the various ponds. GPS equipped carts and colored marked flags will help you with club selection.
Arriving in town late? No problem, the course can be played under the lights. The course is generally lit for a few hours after dark. For example, in summer the course is open until 11:00. If you plan on golfing at night, bring your camera for some amazing shots of the strip.

All of his life, Brian has been around the game of golf. As a youngster, Brian competed at all levels in junior and high school golf. Brian had a zero chance for a college golf scholarship, so he worked on the grounds crew at West Bend Country Club to pay for his University of Wisconsin education. In his adult years, his passion for the game collided with his entrepreneurial spirit and in 2004 launched GolfWisconsin.com. In 2007, the idea for a network of local golf directory sites formed and GolfTrips.com was born. Today, the network consists of a site in all 50 states supported by national sites like GolfTrips.com, GolfGuide.com and GolfPackages.com. It is an understatement to say, Brian is passionate about promoting golf and golf travel on a local, regional, national and international level.
On the golf course, Brian is known as a fierce weekend warrior that fluctuates between a 5-9 handicap. With a soft fade, known as "The Weis Slice", and booming 300+ drives, he can blast it out of bounds with the best of them.
