Beautiful Course that Looks Better than it Plays
From fifty stories up in the Wynn Tower, the Wynn Golf Club looks beautiful even in the heat of late August, with freshly cut deep emerald green fairways and only a few burned-out spots in the rough. It's a great layout with some truly awesome holes. But the reason it's so green is because it's very heavily watered throughout the summer. When your caddie insists on lift clean and place when it hasn't rained in months, you know there's a problem. There was no run on the fairways at all, and the greens were less than perfect, while most of the rough had to be played as ground under repair. I am told they plan to over-seed it wall-to-wall before this course closes for good, and that it is expected to be in "immaculate shape" for its final months of play without a single blade of grass that isn't perfect aka Augusta National.
I thought the course was in really bad shape. Probably because of the summer heat. Then if it is a problem, they should close the course because you have to pay a lot and not get the full reward of the resort. Casket is a better deal and much better experience.
Sorry to see it go
Amazing conditions, hard to believe its directly on the strip. For those who say the course was browning...it is expected on any golf course in August, however when I played it was green as can be. Driving the ball well is a must as the holes have strategically placed bunkers and trees on both sides. You are required to have a caddie and take their advice!
Boys Trip To Wynn GC
way over priced for the value. No additional amentities, odd check in process etc. Great course but nothing I would do additional times. Many other courses in LV area with better amentities for 1/3 price.
Excellent (with a few exceptions)
I'll start by saying there's not much to complain about with the Wynn Golf Club. I'll be honest. But with the hefty green fees that accompany playing here, I feel like a few comments are allowed and not entirely out of order. Let it be known this is a great course and one of the most unique experiences in all of golf. (It'll be sad to see this course go - anything of historic value in Vegas goes fast and tossed out quick. This is the former Desert Inn Golf Course that's soon to be turned into 9 holes and a big lagoon with family water activities.) The staff here is excellent and friendly. The well-appointed and beautiful locker rooms looks like it could be transported to a 1950s era New England country club. I recommend getting there early, if you can. One of those 'take-it-all-in' type of experiences and you certainly don't want to rush this moment. You're immediately paired with a caddie (there's one per foursome). Charlie was our caddie and he was terrific! He would give us tips, history, help us read the greens and pin placement, club selection and other useful info. My only thought here is that the caddie experience does make you play rather fast, and always on the go. Great for pace of play, but not much in the way of soaking it in. The course has its challenges, but the layout is relatively player friendly, for most levels. Played at the end of summer and the course was an A- / B+ at best and could have been better (it was summer in the desert after all).
Sad to see it go
Beautiful course on the strip with helpful and friendly staff. No driving range. Expensive compared to other really nice courses in area. Premium paid to play right on the strip. Due to be closed in three months to build more hotel rooms,, shops and a lake.
Technically, there is a driving range. Albeit, hitting into a big, tall net. There is also a practice hole for chipping and high-iron shots.
Playing at the Wynn Golf Club was one of my favorite golf experiences. From the moment you arrive and pay, to the time you leave, the service you receive is absolutely second to none. They provide you a caddy, who will take you to the driving range, putting green, and even to a practice par 3 before your round, if you want. The locker room was really nice, and they even clean your shoes for you while you're playing, which is definitely a nice touch. They provide you with any Gatorade or drinks that you may need, and it was much appreciated during the middle of the summer in Vegas.
The course was in phenomenal shape for being the middle of the summer. They do a great job of making you feel like you aren't in the middle of the Las Vegas Strip. There a lot of fun, challenging holes that make you think about the different types of shots you need to hit. My caddie, whose name I forgot unfortunately, was really great. He got my clubs for me, cleaned the ball, showed me where to hit my putts and other shots, and was just an overall nice guy. He saved me several strokes on the green, as he knew all the breaks. This course is long, with several par 4's over 400 yards, so don't think you can play from the back tees if you're just an average golfer. Take the caddie's advice before the round, and just be honest about your skill level.
After the round, they give you a really nice bag tag with your name engraved on it. Something like that alone in the pro shop would be $50-$75, but you can't get it unless you play the course. Overall, while $300 may seem like a lot for a round of golf, I thought it was worth every penny based on the condition of the course, the friendliness of the staff, and the top notch service provided. I will most definitely be back in the future.
Everything was top notch, new Callway Xr clubs and all. Our caddie was a problem, wouldnt stop talking, constantly giving unsolicited swing advice and critique. Often didnt even bother to watch shots to see where they went and we were just a twosome. Too bad. He told us we could tell him to shut up, we didnt but we should have
Wynn Golf very enjoyable!
Aside from the exorbitant price even for August, the people and service were a large cut above! Personal, attention to detail and beautiful course made it so worth it. I loved the look of the course, with character to most of the holes and forgiveness off fairway. Greens in great shape!! Fairways decent for most of course. Rental clubs great. Caddie Craig was really good. Just think the price should be at least 50 less. Sure don't want the course to be replaced by concrete, glass, and steel.
Iconic views of the Las Vegas Strip
The course is in pretty decent condition considering the 113 degree summer we have here in Las Vegas. The layout is nice and the staff is eager to help. The highlight of the day was definitely my caddie Jon. He hustled all over the place to retrieve my misguided shots.( For the record there were far too many on this day , lol ) He also talked about the history of the course , the whole while trying to give me targets and reads. All in all a very fun day. JM
