Golf Like a Pro at TPC Las Vegas
7 AM and slightly bleary-eyed from your previous night’s flight into Las Vegas’ McCarran Airport, you step onto the green at TPC Las Vegas.
You kneel down to tie your golf shoes and as you stand to pick up your 7-iron to stretch out your back – you find yourself gazing at the early morning sunrise reflecting on the reddish sandstone peaks of Red Rock Canyon. As you reach to put your 7-iron back into your bag – the game’s assigned caddy shows up and introduces himself to you.
No need to pinch yourself, tiger. You are finally living out the real PGA Tour Experience.
Best Upscale Golf Course In Las Vegas, Indeed!
It’s no wonder golf pros have described TPC Las Vegas (previously TPC Canyons) as “desert elegance,” “the best golf experience in Las Vegas,” and was voted “Best Upscale Resort Course in Las Vegas” by Vegas Golfer. The 7,063 yard, 71-par course is also radically committed to preserving and enhancing the natural environmental resources and wildlife habitats upon which the course is built.
Tournament Players Clubs (TPC) Las Vegas is one of 23 premier private, resort, and daily fee golf properties in the United States and Mexico that are managed by the PGA Tour. They are designed by some of golf’s most highly acclaimed architects. It is here at TPC Las Vegas, that the annual PGA Frys.com Open takes place. In fact, it was here in 1996 that Tiger Woods recorded his first PGA Tour win.
TPC Las Vegas was designed by architect Bobby Weed and player consultant Raymond Floyd and combines the rugged terrain typical of the southern Nevada desert and the best manicured greens. To give an example of this course’s devilish delights: the 12th hole is a 145-yard par-3 that plays over a canyon gorge and onto an elevated green.
Beyond the Green
Besides its magnificent landscapes and challenging holes, TPC Las Vegas’ service and hospitality is conclusively impeccable – as experienced first hand by tripatlas.com/new correspondents.
Group and private lessons as well as golf school programs instructed by top notch instructors are available for players of all skills and experience. They also offer ladies-only clinics available every other day for groups of 2-6 that will help ladies with their short and long game at their own pace.
The Golf Shop at TCP Las Vegas is also consistently ranked by Golf World Business as one of the top 100 Golf Shops in America, and received the “Best Golf Shop” award by Vegas Golfer – due to its large variety of PGA Tour and TPC merchandise. The TPC Grille by the 19th hole allows golfers to take a break or fuel up before their game while overlooking the Las Vegas and Nevada desert landscape.
If you’re playing a round of golf in 2008, you’ll be able to take part in TPC Las Vegas’ Caddie Program. It was created to further enhance and develop a golfer’s PGA Tour experience at TCP Las Vegas. The caddies serve as ambassadors of the course while performing traditional caddy duties, including: carrying bags, offering advice on shots and which clubs should be used, reading the green, as well as giving golfers concise histories and education on the game of golf, the course, and the Tour.
In a city filled with bright lights, crowds of people, and hundreds of businesses vying for your attention – a day at TCP Las Vegas’ natural landscape will offer you an experience of “the other side of Vegas” – just 20 to 30 minutes from the Strip. For all young and old leisure and business golfers, men and women, convention attendees, or landscape chasers – TCP Las Vegas will not disappoint.
