Bali Hai and Siena golf courses receive national honors

BaliHai

Two Las Vegas area golf courses were acknowledged by a national golf website recently.
Bali Hai was named as one of the top 25 friendliest courses in the country. Some of the criteria was based on reader’s reviews and how they were treated by the staff at the winning facilities.
Siena was recognized as one of the most improved courses. The website looked at reader’s reviews from 2013 to 2014 and calculated the facilities that had the most improvement.
We at Las Vegas Golf Magazine are a little biased of course, we think all of the courses here are great and have fantastic staff. Do you have a favorite. If so share it with us.
