Open for public play since 1997, the Rees Jones-designed layout at Rio Secco Golf Club quickly earned acclaim as a player’s course routed through steep canyons, desert washes and high plateaus overlooking Las Vegas. In 2017, the “U.S. Open Doctor” returned to refine his original creation to enhance playability for leisure golfers, while improving the legendary test celebrated for two decades by low handicappers worldwide. Speaking of handicaps, Golf Digest’s #1 instructor, Butch Harmon teaches everyone from tour pros to amateurs at the Butch Harmon School of Golf, located at Rio Secco.
Through the creativity and vision of Rees Jones, Rio Secco perfectly embodies the modern spirit of the game. It is daring, bold and dramatic. Though respectful of tradition, it is unrestrained by outdated convention.
