I have played many courses in Vegas, I try to play a different one every visit. My first time RIO Secco was awesome. The fairways and greens were in great shape, I will say the best I have ever played. I have played TPC Las Vegas, Paiute, Bears best and RIO Secco was the best condition and layout. I will definitely play it again. I am a 10 handicap.
The course right now is in terrific shape. If you kept the ball in the fairway it sat up and said, “Please hit me!”
Yes, the weather was hot but the course was in excellent shape. New alterations to the course made it that much more chalk. Great day but the heat
Fun Day at Rio Secco
Had not played here in a couple years, mainly because felt the course was a little over rated and not the best value in town. However, decided to give another try on advice of friend who plays here a lot. Glad I did. Course was in better shape than I remember, except for the greens, which hadn't healed up completely from punching. In a couple weeks, they should be 100%. At $80, not a bad deal, not great. But would play again for sure.
It’s certainly pretty
There are a lot of positives about Rio Secco from the views to the conditions to the variety of holes. But all of that was overshadowed by the lack of decision making. Hit the fairway then aim for the middle of the green, repeat. Missing a fairway was almost certainly a lost ball, so challenging one side or the other was not an option, and wouldn’t have created an advantage.
The round never had a relaxing escape feel to it (see Shadow Creek). It was a stern test of consistent ball striking.
Rio Secco is the right answer for certain players, but not for me.
I love this course just a great solid layout greens were a little slower than I remember but I highly recommend it.
Staff was awesome. GPS would be helpful to indicate lines off of the tee but otherwise everything was top notch.
Rio Secco an all-around quality Vegas golf experience
After a renovation lat year, Rio Secco certainly retains its spot as one of the Las Vegas area's best golf courses. There's nothing about this Rees Jones layout that's boring, from the elevated tees to the sometimes tricky greens and bunkering to the great views of the Las Vegas valley below. And while this is a premium golf experience through and through, you're doing yourself a disservice if you don't arrive early and stay late to enjoy the amenities, which include a terrific clubhouse locker room, exceptional dining (which isn't overpriced at all) and nicely stocked golf shop. Practice facilities are also well above average.
Good course, not keeping up with the times for this expense level
The course is very good, but they have not kept up with expected amenities. First, the course. The front nine is beautiful and challenging, with big elevation changes and very interesting holes. The back nine is more forgiving, but still a good layout. Second, the amenities. My group's main complaint is the lack of GPS in the cart. This is 2018 and the course costs over $200 to play. In this day and age, nice courses have quality GPS systems. Rio Secco falls down here -- not having one at all. The clubhouse is fine. The food service on the course is adequate. The woman serving food on the course was very friendly.
