Rio Secco - #1


Designed by Rees Jones, Rio Secco Golf Club in Henderson affords great views of the Las Vegas Strip below as golfers try to find the course's tricky bentgrass greens. Said greens can be difficult to read, and if you find yourself above the hole, two-putts become a real challenge. One of the most talked about holes, the 200-yard par-3 12th, plays over a valley to a large green that slopes severely from back to front. Back pin positions are difficult, but a front location can yield aces as everything seems to funnel to that spot. Rio Secco is also home to the Butch Harmon School of Golf.

    Pretty challenging golf course, though generous off the tee. The greens are the toughest part. You better be able to read putts and control your distance. There are places on some of the greens where ... more»

    This course was really nice, probably the favorite of my trip. One bummer though was the 16th hole is being rebuilt, so there's a little par-3 that replaces it, so it really only feels like you're ... more»
