The temporary closure of Rio Secco Golf Club to help flatten the curve of COVID-19 spread in Las Vegas has provided the club with an opportunity to aerate the golf course without disrupting play. The goal is to make the best of a bad situation, delivering excellent playing conditions once Rio Secco – one of Las Vegas’ top golf courses – reopens for public play.

Following the orders of Governor Sisolak, and in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Rio Secco is closed for business from March 18 – April 16. Property closure includes the golf course, Janelas Restaurant & Bar and the Butch Harmon School of Golf.

Mild winter temperatures draw visitors to Las Vegas in droves. And thanks to the hard work of the golf course maintenance team at Rio Secco, a green blanket of ryegrass will be waiting for them. In the deserts of the Southwest, as well as other Southern regions, bermudagrass goes dormant as the nighttime temperatures dip below 50 degrees.

Maintaining enthusiasm and growing the game of golf affects much more than the bottom line of your local golf club. The game itself is full of life lessons we should be teaching our young people like honesty, integrity, judgement, sportsmanship and more. It teaches them how to grow and learn through having fun. And it teaches them the importance of sharing a wonderful game with their children and family.

At the far end of the practice facility at Rio Secco Golf Club in Las Vegas, Nevada – and just within a Dustin Johnson tee ball – sits the Butch Harmon School of Golf, where the world’s top golf instructor works with some of the best PGA TOUR professionals on the planet.
