According to Golfweek, Salish Cliffs is one of the top 50 resort courses in the U.S. … on peer with famous names like PGA West Stadium, Bay Hill, Spanish Bay, and Mauna Kea. Partnered up with the Little Creek Resort Casino, this location outside the state capitol of Olympia attracks a steady stream of weekend entertainment, and offers solid stay-and-play packages for golfers to create a great "bang for the buck" weekend trip.

6 – Harrah’s Ak-Chin / Ak-Chin Southern Dunes

Ak-Chin might not be a name you know, but Harrah’s is, and Southern Dunes should be because it is such a wonderful golf course (we ranked it #4 in all of Arizona in our 2018 Where You Can Rip It rankings!!). The Ak-Chin nation is very smart, creating management partnerships with world-class organizations – course management to Troon North and casino management to Harrah’s. That combination makes this a great destination.

7 – Cache Creek Resort / Yocha Dehe Golf Club

One of the great emerging tribal casino resorts, Cache Creek is a simple trek north of Sacramento and the Bay Area. When they introduced the Yocha Dehe golf course, most people didn't pay much attention. However, this destination has become one of the best overall golf resorts anywhere - let alone Northern California - with Golf Advisor now calling it one of the best golf resorts in the country.

8 – Barona Resort and Casino / Barona Creek Golf Course

North of downtown San Diego, Golfweek also ranks Barona as one of the top 50 golf resorts in the U.S. Their course is good enough to host Web.com tour events and local championships. Meanwhile, the relatively large casino and resort hosts an excellent rotation of entertainment and championship fights, along with all the gaming you’d expect in one of the greatest cities in the country.
