President Obama Golf Vacation Affirms Place of Las Vegas as Top Destination

Las Vegas, Nevada (November 24, 2014--There are more than 60 golf courses in the Las Vegas Golf Region, and over the previous two days, President Barack Obama played a couple of them in near perfect weather in late November. Obama played Shadow Creek--once named the top golf course in the world by The Robb Report--and also Reflection Bay Golf Club, a Jack Nicklaus design that once was a Top 100 golf course in America until it was closed due to the economy but recently re-opened. Obama is just another in a long line of presidents who have played golf in Las Vegas over the years, but his most recent visit proves yet again that Las Vegas is one of the best golf destinations in the world and is a perfect place to play 365 days a year. --By Brian Hurlburt

Las Vegas, Nevada (May 17, 2014)--For reportedly the first time, Tiger Woods and Sean Foley conducted a clinic together. The event, held at Cascata, was part of the weekend-long festivities of Tiger Jam, a major fundraiser for the Tiger Woods Foundation. For at least the third time at the annual Tiger Jam, an injured Tiger Woods was unable to hit full shots during the clinic.

I'm just practicing and strengthenning, and trying to get back. ... no hurry." Foley and Woods worked with three amateurs and also fielded questions during the clinic.
