Rio Secco, located in Henderson just a short drive south from the strip, is part of the Las Vegas golf elite, and is widely regarded to be one of America's finest public access courses. If you are looking for a top class course to add to your Las Vegas itinerary, Rio Secco deserves serious consideration.
Having welcomed many of the world's top players - Tiger Woods holds the course record with 64 - Rio Secco is well established. Rees Jones, famed architect and designer of some of the best new courses in the world, carved a magical layout in some unique terrain; running through dried riverbeds, across plateaus and alongside arroyos are some incredible holes.
The layout can be stretched over 7,400 yards - recommended only for low handicappers - and offers highlights including the signature 7th, a short par-4 with a towering wall behind the green.
