Las Vegas is the best-known U.S. destination among golfers but its courses get an average grade for quality and value, according to a new survey.
The online poll last month by Digest Publications Inc. shows Las Vegas ranking first out of 37 golf markets for the number of golfers who know a lot or something about the area.
Las Vegas beat out number two Orlando, and number three Hawaii.
But Sin City courses ranked 14th among golfers for quality of golf and 27th for value for money.
Digest Publications publishes four magazines including Golf Digest, surveyed 2,000 golfers who subscribe or registered when buying equipment.
