Rio Secco Golf Club

Henderson, Nevada | 18 holes | Desert/Links | Par: 72 | 6992 yards

From the beginning, Rio Secco Golf Club was a Las Vegas Golf Course that was all about quality. Designed by the legendary golf course architect Rees Jones and Keith Evans, Rio Secco gives players a tour of all that's good in Las Vegas golf.

Designed by famed golf architect Rees Jones and Keith Evans, Rio Secco Golf Club opened in 1997 to immediate acclaim from golf's most prestigious magazines. And the praise kept coming for this Henderson course, as it was named one of "America's 100 Greatest Public Golf Courses"  by Golf Digest and has been voted the No.1 public access course in Nevada by the Las Vegas PGA membership poll, among its many awards.

Home to the Butch Harmon School of Golf, Rio Secco can plays to an amazing 7,400 yards from the tips and will give low-handicappers the challenge of their lives. Multiple tee placements, however, make the course accessible and entertaining to all level of golfer. Featuring six holes that will take a player through steep canyons, six holes on a plateau overlooking the dazzling city of Las Vegas and six holes in a broad desert wash, Rio Secco gives players an entertaining and diverse round through Nevada's desert.

Owned and operated by Rio All-Suites Hotel and Harrah's Entertainment, Inc., Rio Secco has a reputation as one of the best-maintained golf courses in and around Sin City. And the quality continues off the course as excellent customer service, and tee times scheduled for at least every 10 minutes, give golfers the type of treatment they expect on their Las Vegas golf package. From its 30,000-square-foot clubhouse to its well-manicured greens, Rio Secco gives Las Vegas golfers what they want.

    Even better than last year. I think it is a must play when in Vegas. Great shape pretty good views and good fair test. We are 0 and 3 hdcp and found course fair from the 6900 blue tees. Had a couple of spotty greens on back side but can not even complain about that. Pro Shop staff great Beverage Gal was as friendly as you find any where but best of all food inside was supper. You should go early and have a breakfast sandwich (best ever) had something after and it was also very good. Will be back for sure

    I must admit... I was a little disappointed after playing Cascata and Dragon Ridge. Truthly it probably is not fair to compare to either of those amazing courses....
