Flashback Friday: The Perfect Pumps For the Back Nine

Here in Vegas we love to golf and, thanks to more than 300 days of sun every year, we can tee off year-round.

Flashback Friday 1956 GolfToday’s Flashback Friday photo showcases the ultimate golf accesory – a nice pair of high-heeled pumps. Barbara and Sandy Meek gaze off into the distance on the 5th tee at the Desert Inn Golf Course in this 1956 publicity photo. We’re guessing the duo changed into more sensible shoes to finish up their round of golf.

As summer temperatures peak, your best Las Vegas golf tee times will be early mornings and late evenings. You can even get practice in after dark at Callaway Golf Center. It is lighted for evening play/practice.

Summer golfing also means deals. Book your golf at VEGAS.com and enjoy free rental clubs at Royal Links  and Silverstone Golf Clubs and half off club rental at Tuscany Golf Club.


I'm one of a rare breed of folks, a native Las Vegan. That's Las Vegan, not Vegan. Being born in Las Vegas has endowed me with crazy Vegas skills - must be all the exposure to neon. I'm a human casino GPS, celebrity locator (You never know who you'll meet in a casino elevator, right Richard Branson?) and tip calculator. My mom taught me probability and statistics with decommissioned casino dice. When I walk through a hotel, tourists think I work there. Maybe it's my smile, my purposeful walk or my friendly answers. Maybe it's just the black suit. But whatever the reason, Vegas.com gives me the chance to exercise my Vegas super powers every day. Now if I could just predict when Megabucks would hit... You can find me on Google+ and Twitter.
