The Grass is Always Greener at TPC Las Vegas

A true gem situated off the Las Vegas strip – just close enough to the action but far enough away to quiet escape the hustle and bustle – TPC Las Vegas, owned and operated by the PGA TOUR, is “desert elegance” on display. From the stunning backdrop of Red Rock Canyon to the rugged natural landscape, the public course offers a test to the most seasoned of golfers, making it a regular destination for celebrities and PGA TOUR players alike including Collin Morikawa, Xander Schauffele and Kevin Na – it’s no wonder the course has been heralded by Golf Digest as one of the “Best Places to Play.”

Surrounded by lush greenery and made of Bermuda grass, the par-71, 7,104-yard championship golf course was designed by acclaimed architect Bobby Weed and World Golf Hall of Famer Raymond Floyd. Named as “The Best of Summerlin” and No. 6 in Nevada according to GolfPass, TPC Las Vegas’ signature holes are No. 2 and No. 14 – while the course’s back nine is especially tricky to navigate. Known as “Death Valley,” hole No. 13 is a 423-yard par-4 offering risk-reward that best captures the spirit of play at TPC Las Vegas. Hole No. 14 is known as the “steeple hole” – which gets its recognition from players aiming their tee shot at the steeple of the church in the distance – and has a reputation for being quite a challenge. Between its challenging design, course clout, impeccable conditions and being just short drive from California, TPC Las Vegas acts as the ideal near-cation for golf enthusiasts.

Whether a quick weekend visit or an extended getaway, after playing at TPC Las Vegas players can retreat to a peaceful oasis at the on-site JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa. A luxurious escape, the JW Marriott offers elegant accommodations with a wide range of fine indoor and outdoor dining and an expansive full-service spa. Following a round of golf, kick back and relax poolside in a cabana – overlooking the waterfall and grotto.
