December 11, 2007–Rees Jones, the designer of Las Vegas golf courses Cascata and Rio Secco Golf Club (pictured), has been called one of the most powerful men in golf. And now he can add another feather to his cap with the inclusion of both of his Las Vegas gems in Golfweek's list of best casino golf courses, as Cascata is ranked fourth and Rio Secco is ranked 20th.
Shadow Creek Golf Club (1) and Wynn Golf and Country Club (2), both Tom Fazio Las Vegas golf courses, are also on the list, but Harrah's is the only casino company with multiple golf courses listed. Harrah's also owns and operates Atlantic City Country Club (5) and Grand Bear (7), two other golf courses on the list.
