Las Vegas, Nevada (October 16, 2013)–Cascata was once called "Golf's hidden treasure" by Sports Illustrated. That's great to be recognized by a major media conglomerate but sometimes what everyday golfers say is as–or more–meaningful. And that might be the case at this Rees Jones resort course located southeast of Las Vegas and in the hills overlooking Boulder City. Cascata is owned and operated by Caesars Entertainment and guests love the place. “Out of this world!" is how Michael, from Brampton, ON, described his Cascata experience. "I was celebrating my 50th birthday and I could not have asked for a more sublime experience… gorgeous course!” –By Brian Hurlburt, Like on Facebook. Follow @LVGolfInsider
Cascata annually hosts Tiger Jam, a major fundraiser for the Tiger Woods Foundation in addition to other big events. It is also a home of the Butch Harmon School of Golf with some of those attending Harmon schools given the opportunity to tee it up at Cascata as part of a playing lesson.
“I thought the course and service was outstanding," said Bob from Victoria, AU. "The greens were the best that we played out of 11 courses in Monterey, Scottsdale, and Las Vegas–simply outstanding. We also played Shadow Creek and Wynn in Las vegas and by way of comparison I thought the Cascata experience was every bit as good as the two other courses.”
And Michael from Wichita, KS, put Cascata in some pretty good company: “Wonderful experience … better than Pebble. Will highly recommend.” For more testimonials, click to the official Cascata website.
