Siena Golf Club is a safe and enjoyable bet in Las Vegas

HENDERSON, Nev. -- Among the sure bets in Las Vegas is a round of golf at Siena Golf Club in the Summerlin area. It's about 20 minutes from the Strip in Red Rock Canyon, where architects Lee Schmidt and Brian Curly created a memorable and scenic golf experience.

There are five sets of tees, so this 6,834-yard par 72 is playable by nearly every level of golfer. The greens are also larger and there are plenty of bunkers, many of them designed to help define the golf course, but difficult to avoid. In all, there are 97 of these sand hazards.

The large bentgrass greens also have plenty of undulations, so golfers must stay below the hole in most cases. There are a great variety of holes, including the drivable par-4 11th.

There are also some pretty water features, that includes small waterfalls. The signature hole is the par-3 fifth, which stretches to just 159 yards with a semi-island green.

Born and raised in the former Soviet Union, photographer Oleg Volovik moved to the United States in 1992 and now lives with his wife and two children in Los Angeles. He joined the TravelGolf editorial team in 2010. Originally graduated with a Masters Degree in Civil Engineering he continued to dedicate his time and energy to his passion for visual arts and photography. Oleg has extensive experience in fine arts, fashion, event, architecture and journalistic photography. His work has been exhibited in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Moscow, where he also taught a master class, sponsored by Hewlett-Packard, in April 2007. He may be a novice golfer, but Oleg always wears a white leather glove during photo sessions. "Golf photography is my own 'game' with the beauty of nature and human creativity.
