Rees Jones, known as the “Open Doctor” for his work on prominent U.S. Open venues, renovated his original design at Rio Secco in 2017. With the redesign, Jones enhanced the playability for the average golfer, creating many new tees and greens. A former member of Golf Digest's 100 Greatest Public Courses, Rio Secco provides exciting elevation changes and views of the Las Vegas Strip. And, if your round didn’t go as planned, the Butch Harmon School of Golf is on property to help.

Wynn Golf Club
Public
Wynn Golf Club
Las Vegas, NV
Nestled in the heart of the Vegas strip, Wynn Golf Club has become a go-to venue for Capital One’s “The Match,” hosting the match between Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau in 2021, the four quarterbacks in 2022, and in 2023 the teammates battle between Steph Curry/Klay Thompson vs. Patrick Mahomes/Travis Kelce. The Tom Fazio design features dramatic elevation changes, created by moving over 400,000 cubic yards of earth. Fazio and his son, Logan, renovated the course in 2019 to make room for a casino and hotel expansion onto the property, creating eight new holes and refurbishing the other 10. The par-70 layout features six par 3s, including the picturesque 18th, with a green perched at the base of a roaring waterfall.

Southern Highlands Golf Club
Private
Southern Highlands Golf Club
Las Vegas, NV
Although Southern Highlands was billed as a co-design between Robert Trent Jones Jr. and his famous father, in truth the senior Jones, who would die in 2000, was retired by the time construction on this lavish Las Vegas layout began in 1998. Still, there’s a plaque on the 12th hole proclaiming it to be the last hole Mr. Jones ever designed. Regardless, Southern Highlands reflects his son Bobby’s design tenets and visuals. The Highlands was always intended to be Bobby’s answer to Tom Fazio’s Shadow Creek (ranked No. 27), but with a more financially sensible real estate component. It has the same Carolina-pines motif, the same sprawling, overly elaborate bunkers, the same kinetic water features and, if anything, even more elevation change, with the 11th tee box sitting ten stories above the fairway and providing an unobstructed view of the Las Vegas Strip several miles to the north.

Cascata
Public
Cascata
Boulder City, NV
One of the great engineering feats in golf thus far in this century, Cascata climbs up and down a steep, rocky mountain hillside southeast of Las Vegas. It's authentically Nevada on the edges, the barren areas akin to Wolf Creek in Mesquite, but its turfed areas, planted with date palms, ironwoods and willows, and crossed by endless babbling brooks, is something of a salute to nearby Shadow Creek. Cascata plays mostly uphill on the front (the ninth tee is 600 feet above the clubhouse), downhill on the longer back nine.

Chimera Golf Club
Public
Chimera Golf Club
Henderson, NV
Chimera Golf Club is a playable Ted Robinson design just outside Las Vegas in Henderson. The rolling fairways are generous on this layout that plays through a housing development. There are some incredible vistas of the Vegas Strip and Mt. Charleston, including on the first and 11th tees. In typical Vegas style, there are a variety of ways to trick up your round, like a GolfBoard rental or a three-wheel trike, as well as the opportunity to play FootGolf, a fusion between soccer and golf.

Boulder Creek Golf Club: Desert Hawk/Coyote Run/El Dorado Valley
About 30 minutes southeast of the strip, Boulder Creek has a more rural feel than many of the top public courses in the Las Vegas area. Instead of playing to narrow landing areas in a crowded housing development, the three nines at Boulder Creek offer wide fairways and expansive views of the surrounding landscape. The relatively flat course is desert golf in its gentler form and presents some intriguing shot options, including a couple of split fairways.
