In the last review, I gave Cascata four stars, simply because a 4 3/4-star rating wasn't available. After returning to the course for the first time in four years, I'm ready to proclaim it a full five-star experience. First impressions are Cascata's specialty. Golfers arrive to a gorgeous clubhouse with a waterfall running through it. You'll come to despise that waterfall that winds through the course, but it looks marvelous pouring through the clubhouse and down the rocks above the range. Our group encountered a flock of Bighorn sheep grazing on the range as we warmed up. The course itself continuously climbs up the mountains and back down again. Misses into the desert and rocky canyons tend to disappear, although my foursome had several lucky breaks that spit balls back into play. The caddies read the greens like pros. Hang onto their every word to make a few putts. A member of my foursome drained an 80-footer on no. 18. This place is good at creating memories that last a lifetime.


Player Tip: Layup off the tee to the corner of the dogleg left on the 18th hole. It's a three-shot par-5 no matter what.

Rees Jones once called his 7,137-yard Cascata the "Eighth Wonder of the World."
Cascata looks like a hybrid between Wolf Creek in Mesquite and Shadow Creek. Its rocky cliffs and lush fairways are Caesars Entertainment Corp.'s answer to the Wynn Golf Club and MGM's Shadow Creek. All three high-end clubs were created to wow golfers with caddies, immaculate conditions and superior service.
Jones reportedly spent $70 million to build Cascata, which opened in 2000. It costs up to $375 to play, but can be had in shoulder season for lower. It's a fair price for a dramatic course that rides more than 800 feet of elevation change 3,200 feet above the desert valley floor. Cascata's magical setting resides 25 miles from the strip, although it's definitely worth the drive.


Player Tip: Drive it straight - and let the caddies read the greens - or it will be a long day at Cascata.
