The Pro Shop staff were exceptionally friendly and well informed. The gentleman at the driving range (Randy) was very insightful after I told him this was my first time here. He gave me the "Readers DIgest Condensed version" of the course and he was spot on. They had just overseeded the course so it was cart path only which led to a few logistical issues, but nothing that couldn't be dealt with #I'm a below knee amputee#. The condition of the course was immaculate. The greens were a little quick but very receptive and well maintained. I believe this is a course that will challenge any and all handicaps. In the for what its worth category- On the 11th Hole- if you happen to have a cut/light fade in your repertoire take aim at the right hand edge of the right most bunker and you'll be pleasantly surprised. This course has been on my "bucket list" and I'm really glad it was. It's a blast and you owe it to yourself to play it- you won't be sorry

The risk/reward holes…as well as the always-present desert terrain…make for an unbelievable round of golf on this Rees Jones layout. Play smart and you'll enjoy the course. The staff is very accommodating, the clubhouse and restaurant are warm and friendly and if you’re on the practice range, take a look across the way--you might even seen world-renowned instructor Butch Harmon working with his students. Or better yet, sign up for one of his sessions. If you’re going to play demanding courses like Rio Secco, a few pointers will certainly help

The home of the 2012 and 2013 Wendy's 3Tour Challenge roams the scenic foothills of the Black Mountain Range, offering views of the Strip. It's my favorite course in Las Vegas not named Wynn, Cascata or Shadow Creek.
The 7,313-yard course opened in 1997. Box canyons and cliffs make this Rees Jones design quite a chore to score upon.
Golfers can buy into the Million Dollar Hole-in-One Challenge at the tough par-3 seventh hole. An ace in qualifying affords three shots for the grand prize every year.
Butch Harmon's original golf school calls Rio Secco home.


Player Tip: To make a good round even more memorable, hire a T-Mate, a beautiful female caddie.
