The Wynn Golf Club

The Wynn Golf Club at Wynn Las Vegas is a Tom Fazio/Steve Wynn design that will, simply put, knock your socks off. The golf course stretches out to just over 7,000 yards from the tips. Now that may not seem long but when you're staring a par 3 at 238 yards (better hit that 3-wood straight), a par 4 that reaches 498 yards (the 17th with water coming devilishly into play on the approach shot) and a finishing hole that reaches 448 yards and features enough water (and an impressive waterfall) to test even the best players and you've got a golf course worthy of the Wynn name.

"It's just a total experience," says Brian Hawthorne, director of golf at Wynn Golf Club. "It's more than just playing 18 holes of golf. It's a whole package with the resort, the many places to eat and, of course, the golf course."

And what a golf course it is. The par-70 course features five par 3s and three par 5s. Three of Wynn Golf Club's par 3's are picture-postcard layouts with water and sand sculpted around the hole to add to the beauty as well as the difficulty.

"The par 3s are all pretty special," Hawthorne said. "There's a lot of variety in the looks and the distances (153 yards is the shortest to that monstrous ninth) so you do get different looks."

Then there's the elevation change. With Wynn moving around in 800,000 cubic yards of dirt, players will find rolling fairways as well as elevated greens with runoff areas. Sidehill lies are abundant and will challenge players to control ball flight.

There's also the sheer beauty of the dark green grass in the fairways and greens along with the brilliant plants that seemingly pop up everywhere and assault the senses in a calming way.

"Playing golf at Wynn Las Vegas is truly a unique golf experience, mixing a bit of nostalgia from the Desert Inn Country Club as well as a modern day golf masterpiece," says John DeMarco, Director of Travel & Tourism, Golf Channel Solutions.

With green fees ranging from off-season weekday rates of $300 to in-season rates of $500, some players can become hesitant to want to tee it up. A few words of advice: Go for it. You'll find the experience, as well as all the extras, well worth it.

First, you get a world-class golf course, complete with caddie (included in the fee, but tips are always welcome and these guys will definitely shave strokes off your round with their help in club selection and reading greens). There's also a cart filled with everything from soft drinks to Gatorade to water. In the clubhouse you can grab some of the complimentary seasonal fruit, and a couple of bottles of water on your way out to your cart. Plus, loaner clubs and loaner shoes are also on the house. (Note: They aren't called "rentals" because you're not paying for them). And you'll also get your golf shoes and dress shoes cleaned before and after the round at no charge so you'll look good on and off the course. Missing spikes or a have a broken shoe lace? No problem, they will take care of it - just like they've taken care of everything else.

The Verdit
There you have it. An amazing round of golf on the famed Las Vegas Strip. The overall experience is well worth the price tag. You'll experience what it's like to be treated like a VIP - Very Important Player. Once you've teed it up here with all of the extras, chances are you'll make Wynn Las Vegas your home away from home next time you feel the need to tee it up in Vegas.
