If you're a guy, and you've got a few friends, you don't want to take the ultimate golf vacation; you want to take a "mancation." And for that, you have to go to Las Vegas.
Lucky for you, there's already an itinerary for such a golf endeavor. How about staying at the MGM Grand with three rounds of golf, interspersed with a little gambling, dinner, drinking and a limousine thrown in for good measure? And, oh yes, let's not forget the Parmates ... but back to that in a minute.
The MGM Grand not only has comfortable rooms and a great casino but fantastic dining, shows and a party pool you're not likely to forget. As one participant said, "The scenery is pretty good there."
On our Vegas mancation, three hours of sleep is the norm as you head out to the golf courses in the morning. A limo awaits to take you to the Pacific-themed Bali Hai Golf Club, just a few minutes away, and the golf portion of this mancation is underway.
The next day, after another fun night, it's off to the Carolina pines and the Dye-designed Desert Pines Golf Club, featuring what might be the best bentgrass greens in Las Vegas. And Day 3 culminates with a trip to Royal Links Golf Club, another Dye design, except this one pays tribute to the great holes of the British Open.
The last round, however, comes with a bonus -- two Parmates -- female caddies who redefine the position in more ways than one. No matter how you play, you can't have a bad time with these beauties helping you out.
