Now is the perfect time to find the best poker player at the club and get a group of guys together to sponsor him at the Main Event. This will give you the perfect opportunity to tag along and experience great desert golf while your player is making money on the poker tables. Last year 621 poker players cashed during the Main Event, the odds are great the best poker player in your club could be among that number this year.
The WSOP starts on May 30, 2008 and concludes July 16, 2008 at the final table. Summer is a great time to play golf in Las Vegas. Certainly the weather is a bit warm but that is no problem for a real man, just drink lots of water. The golf courses are fairly inexpensive and you can easily play a round in less than 4 hours.
Great golf courses to play during the WSOP:
- Rio Secco Golf Club
Home golf course of the tournament hotel. Rio Secco is one of the most demanding golf course in Las Vegas.
- TPC Las Vegas
Previous host of the annual Frys.com Open on the PGA Tour. Play where the pros shoot low numbers.
- Bear's Best Golf Club
Favorite golf course among local poker pros.
- Painted Desert Golf Club
One of the first truly target golf courses in Las Vegas
- Silverstone Golf Club
This golf course has several par-5's that measure over 600 yards. With three nine hole golf courses you can't go wrong.
