February 15, 2008–Rio Secco Golf Club is one of two Las Vegas golf courses (Cascata is the other) designed by Rees Jones, often referred to as the "Open Doctor." In addition, the Las Vegas golf course is home to the world-famous Butch Harmon School of Golf (you never know when you will bump into Adam Scott, Natalie Gulbis or other big-time pros), and also the T-Mates, the sexy golf hosts that are now prowling the 18 holes at Rio Secco Golf Club on a daily basis. And recently riosecco.net, the official website, re-launched and features video, photos, direct links to Las Vegas golf packages and Las Vegas tee times, and other pure Rio Secco Golf Club and Las Vegas golf information.
Rio Secco Golf Club is owned and operated by Harrah's–as is Cascata–and is a multiple award-winning golf course.
