Las Vegas once again, in a matter of a few weeks, has something to brag about in the world of golf. It was just several weeks ago when a brand new state of the art Golf Galaxy opened up in Henderson bringing a much needed retail facility to the southeast part of the Valley.
This new news comes to us from the former site of the Callaway Golf Center of Las Vegas and the news is rather exciting. TaylorMade Golf has taken over the facility and with a dramatic remodel of the retail store, not to mention some pretty sweet rental clubs to boot, the new TaylorMade Golf Experience brings a fresh new look to the south side of the Strip.
With a grand opening celebration that included an appearance by LPGA superstar and Las Vegas local Natalie Gulbis the TaylorMade Golf Experience opened their doors to the public and showcased their new state of the art retail center that is a TaylorMade Golf lover’s dream. A closest to the pin contest, a club-head speed contests and a long drive contest were a few of the events that were held and the prizes were well worth the attempt. No, I didn’t win anything.
The TaylorMade Golf Experience is a world class golf practice facility that is now paired with a fantastic retail space. With 113 stations to practice your swing from and a choice to hit from mats or natural grass, the massive practice range is a great place to work on your game. You’ll also find a large putting green and a chipping green that has an adjacent bunker to work on those pesky sand shots.
Also on site is a very enjoyable and what can be a challenging Par 3 course that offers some amazing views of the Las Vegas strip. With holes ranging from 110 yards to 185 yards there is a challenge for even the top notch players.

It easy to see why the weekends are busy time for the TaylorMade Golf Experience, there’s a ton to do and now with the edition of a newly remodeled retail center there is something for everyone and I didn’t even get to the Upper Deck Grill! I’ll just add their pancakes are amazing!
