Las Vegas, Nevada (January 12, 2012)–It's nothing new for the Rees Jones-designed Las Vegas resort course Cascata to win an award. The latest award for Cascata–which once received a rating of 29 out of 30 from ZAGAT–is the "Best Playing Conditions in Southern Nevada in 2011" from GreensKeeper.org, a large community driven golf website. Cascata is owned by Caesars Entertainment. –By Brian Hurlburt.
"Over the years, Cascata has become known for award-winning conditions," says Caesars Entertainment VP of Golf Operations Eric Dutt. "While earning awards isn't our sole goal at Cascata, being recognized by the golf playing public does confirm our commitment to service and conditions, and proves that our efforts have led to ultimate success. This recent award from GreensKeeper.org will go very nicely with past recognition from ZAGAT and other respected media outlets. What is special about these awards is that they have been voted on by the golfers who have experienced what makes Cascata a memorable and quality golf experience."
Cascata is owned and operated by Caesars Entertainment, and is one of two resort courses designed by Jones that the gaming company owns. Rio Secco Golf Club, home of the Butch Harmon School of Golf, is the other providing a solid tandem of Las Vegas golf courses for the gaming group which operates Caesars Palace, Bally's Las Vegas, the Rio Suites Hotel, and several other top Las Vegas hotels.

GreensKeeper.org is billed as "the West's largest and fastest growing golf social network consisting of 50,000+ members." Official award description: "These awards were derived from analyzing the last 12 months of online survey ratings submitted by our site users, reviewing the last 12 months of online user submitted reviews and taking into account the survey results/posted reviews of Greenskeeper.org Staff when available."
A review posted on Greenskeeper.org stated the following: "Played Cascata in late November – course, as always, was in perfect shape. Staff were there for every need. Not the cheapest course in Vegas but it is the best service golf club I have ever had. From the greeter who introduces you to the pro to the name on the locker to the end of the day, they don't miss a beat."
