Rio Secco Earns No. 11 Ranking in Golfweek’s Best Courses You Can Play – Nevada

Rio Secco’s award-winning track gives our players a Las Vegas golf experience unlike anything else and our friends at Golfweek have taken notice – for good reason. Here are five things that helped Rio Secco earn Golfweek’s No. 11 ranking in Best Courses You Can Play: Nevada

REES JONES DESIGN

Rees Jones one of the most decorated architects of the 20th century, created a true test of golf when he carved Rio Secco into the canyons of Seven Hills. The twisting and weaving routing requires a measure of thought for just about every pass at the golf ball, but the course plays more than fair – especially from forward tee boxes.

IMMACULATE CONDITIONS

You won’t find a single under-maintained golf course in the top 50, let alone the top-10. But to take a top spot in Golfweek’s best, you have to be perfect. Every inch of Rio Secco is meticulously maintained and boasts pristine conditions regardless of season.

RIDING IN STYLE

Rio Secco Golf Club’s Tempo Connect golf cars from Clubcar take the guesswork out of your game with pinpoint accuracy provided by on-cart GPS. If you’re one who likes to play with tunes in the background, the Tempo Connect Bluetooth system allows players to listen to their own playlists and if you skipped breakfast and need a pick-me-up at the turn, two-way communication with Janelas allows players at Ril Secco to order in advance.

INSTRUCTION FROM THE BEST

When the world’s best players like Tiger Woods, Gary Woodland, Rickie Fowler and Dustin Johnson want to get a little better, they seek out the advice and counsel of none other than Butch Harmon. And at Rio Secco, you can do the same. The Butch Harmon School of Golf is located on property at Rio Secco and 18-hole playing lessons at Rio Secco are included with the School’s instruction packages which range from single-day to three-day excursions into the deepest realms of golf instruction and knowledge.

VIEWS FROM THE TOP

The ancient riverbeds and canyons that make up Henderson’s Seven Hills create a truly remarkable golf experience at Rio Secco, playing Rio Secco during a late afternoon round provides some of the most incredible views of the glitz and glamor of the Las Vegas strip in the distance.
