Official course description from TPC.com/LasVegas: "A true test of shot-making skill, the course can deceive even the best as lush greens weave through a tapestry of arroyos, barrancas and desert features on several hundred acres. The back nine are especially tricky to navigate. While no signature hole exists, the 423-yard, par-4 13th called “death valley”, offers risk-reward that best captures the spirit of play here. It’s all the exhilaration you’d expect in Las Vegas, for every type of player."
