What Golfers Are Saying About TPC Las Vegas
“Great experience from start to finish. Very friendly and welcoming staff, great warm-up facility (range, chipping, putting). Bunkers are everywhere but the sand was great to work with. Be aware that the greens were insanely fast (lob the green, watch it roll off the back, rinse repeat). Great views, fun and challenging course.” – David

What Golfers Are Saying About Rio Secco Golf Club
“Rio Secco Golf Club: This excellent and often dramatic Rees Jones-designed golf course guarantees variety. Six holes weave their way through a canyon, six are perched atop a plateau and six run through the bed of a dry river (Rio Secco in Spanish). Not only is there variety, but also many spectacularly crafted holes and stunning views across Las Vegas, down to the famous Strip and away to the Spring Mountains in the west!” – Suzanne

“Absolutely amazing. Yes, it’s a bit expensive, yes, it is over the top, but if you’re a golfer you owe it to yourself to play here. From the second you get picked up to the second you are dropped off, it’s an incredible experience. The course is always in pristine shape, the staff is always so friendly and so professional. This is what golf is supposed to be like. Food in the clubhouse is tasty, and weirdly affordable compared to the green fee price.” – Kevin
