About Rio Secco Golf Course:
Welcome to Rio Secco Golf Club, one of the most beautiful and challenging
courses in the Las Vegas valley. Designed in 1997 by the famous
architect Rees Jones, this facility has quickly become known
as one of the best courses in the city. The par 72 course stretching
7,332 yards and with a slope and rating of 142/75.7, is a course
you might want to get a lesson before playing. With the Butch
Harmon Golf School located at Rio Secco, getting a lesson with
some of the best golf
professionals in the world is easy to do. Cut out of the Black
Mountain Range of rolling foothills, Rio Secco Golf Club provides
a world-class golf experience unlike many others. The 18-hole,
championship golf course was originally designed mainly for the
guests staying at the Rio or Harrah’s Hotels on the Las
Vegas strip. Opened to the public, it is a course that is a “must
play” for Las Vegas Golf.
Located just 15-20 minutes from the Las Vegas strip, the views
from Rio Secco are unparalleled. Set roughly 800 feet above the
city of Las Vegas, many holes are carved twisting through rock valleys.
With the dark rock shadowing over the course, many tee shots will
leave your knees knocking. With four sets of tee boxes, Rio Secco
is playable for golfers of all types. With carries of almost 200
yards from the tips on certain holes, the “A” player
better bring his/her “A” game. With some of the tees
being elevated, the carries play a little shorter than expected.
With the 18 holes split three ways: 6 holes through steep canyons, 6 holes on a plateau overlooking the city and 6 holes in a broad desert wash. Rio Secco is a sight for sore eyes; it is tremendously challenging, yet fair, but a demanding course layout. You might want to bring a couple extra golf balls,
they might be needed.
With many signature holes, Rees Jones has created what he calls
a “natural cathedral hole." The par-4 seventh plays only
417 yards from the tips, but from an extremely elevated tee box.
to a narrow fairway which has been stamped through a rock valley
seems daunting. The green looks like it is being guarded by a huge
wall of rock. If you go anywhere other than on this green, your
ball will be sucked up by the sand traps that are ever present
on the seventh. Have fun
on this one.
A very important factor to playing well at Rio Secco is getting
to know the Crenshaw Bentgrass greens. These things are lightening
quick. It is a true test for even the most skilled of players. It
is a good idea to roll a few on the putting green before hitting
the first tee. You will be glad you did. A word of advice, just
Rio Secco Golf Club is located 15-20 minutes from the Las Vegas
Strip. As a prefect venue for weddings, social functions, corporate
events and meeting, Rio Secco has it all. With seating available
for basically any group size, book your event for Rio Secco. With
a drive up snack bar conveniently located right next to the driving
range, a quick snack or sandwich awaits. With a full-size driving
range able to accommodate any group size, a chipping green and
a mandatory practice putting
green, Rio Secco is the place for your next day of Las Vegas Golf.
With its plush Bermuda fairways, and Crenshaw Bentgrass greens
with some of the trickiest putts in the city, you will never forget
your day at Rio Secco Golf Club….ENJOY!
