Rio Secco Golf Club, the home site of the Harmon Vegas School, was designed by the legendary Rees "U.S. Open Doctor" Jones, and is one of the finest courses in the West. The course plays through dramatic canyons, over plateaus, and offers beautiful views of the Las Vegas Valley. The course is the host site for the made-for-TV Wendy's 3-Tour Challenge (The PGA Tour vs. The LPGA Tour vs. The Champions Tour) and events surrounding Tiger Jam, the annual fundraiser for the Tiger Woods Foundation. The Million Dollar Hole-In-One is also a highlight of Rio Secco as are the T-Mates female caddies. Click now for the official Rio Secco website for the course photo gallery.
