Wynn Golf Club at Wynn Las Vegas: Unlike any other course in southern Nevada
LAS VEGAS - Wynn Golf Club is unlike any other golf course in southern Nevada.
With green fees in the $500 range, this high roller country club-for-a-day is located on the same property as the old Desert Inn Golf Course, but that's where the similarities end. Where the old PGA Tour course was flat with parallel fairways, Wynn's Tom Fazio signature layout, though it retained 1,200 of the old trees, is completely different. More than 800,000 cubic yards were removed to create elevation change and rolling fairways.
An additional 5,800 mature trees as well as 100,000 shrubs were imported to give Wynn Golf Club more of a Colorado look than Las Vegas appearance.
Being on the Las Vegas Strip and Wynn Las Vegas resort property, views of the neighboring casinos, hotels and the Stratosphere abound, leaving no doubt that you're in Sin City. A waterway that runs through 12 holes is punctuated by a 37-foot waterfall behind the 18th green. From the back tees, according to Director of Golf Brian Hawthorne, the 7,042-yard par-70 course provides plenty of challenge for the low handicap player, but a lack of forced carries and generous grass fairways make the golf course a pleasurable experience for the higher handicappers as well.
