What else do I need to know?
The course was designed by Tom Fazio and got a major upgrade in 2019 before it reopened.
What’s the bottom line?
If you can afford it, you’ll have a hard time doing better.
The Wynn Golf Club has a fabled history. Although it only dates back to 2005, it is located on the land once home to the Desert Inn Golf Club, a famous course that drew celebrities, politicians, and anyone else who could afford it.
Designed by Tom Fazio, the course generated headlines when it opened as being one of the most expensive tee times in the nation, upwards of $500. It made headlines again when it closed in 2017 to make way for what was supposed to be a new resort on the Wynn Las Vegas property.
Steve Wynn’s *ahem* problems scuttled that project and the course was reopened in 2019 with a refresh from Fazio and his son Logan. It is a 6,722-yard, par-70 championship course with topography that was reimagined to offer significant elevation changes, set against water features and mature trees, for a unique experience for golfers of all skill levels. Amenities likewise have been redesigned, from an on-course culinary program to a new, 6,500-square-foot practice putting green and netted full-swing warm-up area.
Amazingly, the new iteration of the course has come with substantially lower green fees… no, I’m just kidding. They went up to around $550. If you can afford it, this is supposed to be one of the best courses in the country.
