TPC Las Vegas tops Power Rankings for the week of Aug. 18



Even in the heat of a Nevada summer, golfers can still go home happy, apparently. TPC Las Vegas anchors this weeks' Power Rankings on GolfAdvisor thanks to some fantastic scores in every category, particularly "overall" and "value." The course can currently played at a summer discount for $75-130 instead of its peak rate of over $200, and golfers are apparently taking advantage.

In fact, one reviewer from this August had this to say:

"The course was exceptional (so nice you could eat off the fairways), the staff was help and very friendly, and the pace off play was perfect."

TPC Las Vegas wasn't the only TPC property to make the GolfAdvisor Power Rankings, as TPC Treviso Bay in Naples also scored high in the conditions category.

Here are the top-rated U.S. courses of the week as submitted by GolfAdvisor users for the past week in overall, value and conditions categories:
