Rio Secco Golf Club in Las Vegas takes caddies to the next level with its "T-Mates"
Rio Secco Golf Club, one of Las Vegas' most prestigious high-end golf courses, is taking your typical caddie experience to the next level.
Golfers can now hire a sexy Rio Secco "T-Mate" to accompany them on their round of golf.
T-Mates are part caddie, part model, part host - and all fun and professional. Selected by a professional modeling agency for both physical beauty and personality, these women are trained by Rio Secco's professional golf staff to be well versed in golf terminology and basic caddie duties.
Rio Secco T-Mates are there for golfers from the moment they arrive at the golf course until they put their clubs back in their cars at day's end.
T-Mates greet you at the bag drop and assist you with registration and your pro shop needs. Out on the course, they give you accurate yardage advice, keep your score, repair your divots and ballmarks, provide beverages and even take your lunch order.
"The T-Mates are here to enhance the already fantastic Rio Secco Golf Club experience," says Rio Secco's Director of Marketing Mark Blais. "The program has heightened the customer service provided for guests."
Set among the foothills of the Black Mountains 13 miles from Las Vegas, the Rio Secco Golf Club provides a world-class golf experience unlike any other.
The 18-hole championship golf course was designed by Rees Jones and opened in 1997. It can play to more than 7,400 yards and very difficult, yet four separate tees allow golfers to craft a round of golf that better matches their skill level. Sure, the course is tough (Tiger Woods holds the course record at 64), but it's accessible to a wide range of handicaps.
Jones laid out a golf course that throws a variety of terrain at players. Six holes meander through steep canyon, six holes run along a large plateau with stunning views of downtown Las Vegas, and six holes fan out across broad desert wash.
When it opened, Golf Digest and Golf heralded it as one of the country's 10 best new golf courses.
Rio Secco's accolades didn't stop there. In recent years it's been named among Golf Digest's top 100 best public golf courses in the country, one of the world's 10 best golf resorts by USA Today, Nevada's best public golf course and one of the best golf courses in the west by Golf.
Rio Secco is also home to a Butch Harmon golf school, where average golfers can learn from the past coach of Tiger Woods and the current coach of Phil Mickelson and many other PGA Tour greats.
