I will be back in Vegas next month and I was wondering with the economy are there any places on the strip to play $5 black jack? I spend most of my money on the Golf Course but I like to do something at night. Also how are the courses what kind of shape are they in. Last Spring I went and played one course and all of the greens were sand even though they said they were not. It was a real bummer because I love to play when I come out. My two favorite courses are TPC Canyons and Stallion Mountain.

O'Sheas has 24/7 $5 blackjack - expect the tables to be full. Actually, any $5 blackjack tables you find on the strip will likely be full, except maybe on non-weekend (Fri-Sun) days.

You can find it pretty easily off the strip, though. Arizona Charlie's, the Station casinos and other local haunts almost always have $5 blackjack.

Only problem with the $5 blackjack tables at O'Shea's is they do not offer the same playing rules as most of the Strip casinos; i.e, no multiple doubling down or pair splitting or doubling on splits. If you're planning to golf, you will undoubtedly have a car rental and that will allow you to go to some of the local places where you can find $5 tables. You might also find the downtown casinos to have $5 tables.

You can play golf at night here in Vegas. Just spend some time at Yucca Mountain, then you'll have glow in the dark balls.

5 dollar tables are always full, 10 dollar and up are usually empty. So if you want a 5 dollar table just look for the one that has no room.

Maybe theres a reason that Im not aware of, but it seems silly to pay a dealer to stand there and do nothing when they could have 2 tables at 5 dollar min full, rather than 1 empty table and 1 full. The cost to pay the dealers is the same either way.

I have a lodge brother who's a poker dealer at the Hard Rock, but I doubt that they have $5 tables.

Definately call the course to find out if aeration has been performed. My course (Silverstone) just did their greens 2 weeks ago so we play a 2-putt max rule because you won't get a true roll.

Painted Desert is in great shape right now. Paiute is another I would recommend as well as Legacy, Angel Park (Palm), Boulder Creek. Stay away from Black Mountain, it's become a dog track.

Rates have dropped; however, it is prime season for the courses so your best bet is to get a late tee time. You could also check with discount sites like golfnow.com which will give late times.

Other than that, if you know a local you can get the best rates.
