The holes at Rio Secco wind, wander and stretch in, around, and over the desert canyons and arroyos of the southeast part of the valley. Tremendous views of Las Vegas are offered from tees, fairways, and greens. And, maybe best of all at Rio Secco, are the T-mates female caddies who are both friendly and high on golf knowledge. A T-Mate can be added to any round for an additional fee. Click now to meet the T-Mates.
Rio Secco annually hosts several big events including the made-for-television Wendy's 3-Tour Challenge which pits three-player teams from the LPGA Tour, PGA Tour, and Champions PGA Tour against each other. Rio Secco is also the home of the WAC College Golf Championships, and the Natalie Gulbis Golf Classic.
Another highlight of Rio Secco is the Million Dollar Hole, where golfers have the chance to qualify to make an ace worth a million bucks. Each day golfers have the opportunity to get closest to the hole, enter a drawing, or make their own ace to quality for the big event which are invitation only to the winners.

Here is a recent review from the website GreensKeeper.org about the Rio Secco golf experience: "Rio Secco is a beautiful course shaped through the natural arroyos and canyons on the south end of the valley. The front 9 is a little more "open" then the back, and there is a great mix of elevated tees. You definitely need to know your club distances and trust the yardage book, as many holes look longer than they actually are. Great mix of Par 3s, short/long Par 4s, and 3 long Par 5s, with a short one thrown in. The 18th is the best finishing hole I have seen in the valley, especially at twilight with the Strip lights in the distance. Definitely worth a visit while in Vegas, and worth a round or 2 a year if you live here."
