Las Vegas, Nev. (Jan. 23, 2015)–Every golf course strives to be the best. Well, in the eyes of the TPC headquarters that oversees 32 properties nationwide, TPC Las Vegas has earned that honor in 2014 from the TPC Network by winning the Public/Resort Operation of the Year award. It’s an honor that isn’t taken lightly as it’s the sixth time TPC Las Vegas has won the award since opening its doors in 1996. –By Bill Bowman
TPC Las Vegas was designed by PGA TOUR Design Services lead architect Bobby Weed with consultation from World Golf Hall of Fame member Raymond Floyd. It’s a par-71 roller coaster ride that plays to 7,112 yards over and around canyons (which brings back memories of its former name: TPC at The Canyons). The layout, located in the golf-rich west section of Vegas, is one of those that is both a challenge and elegant in ambiance.
That elegance and the hard-working dedication by the staff were rewarded with the recent honor that was handed out in mid-January. According to TPC Las Vegas management, every department was involved earning the accolades. Several factors help determine the award: the entire facility has to provide excellent services, a great golf experience and financial success. Plus the facility has to rank highly in customer survey ratings. And in 2014, TPC Las Vegas received the second highest overall survey results, trailing only TPC Sawgrass by the slightest of margins, .02 percent.
Add it all together and you’ve got a world-class golf course that appeals to golfers of every ability.
“TPC Las Vegas is extremely proud to be recognized by the TPC Network for its outstanding year in 2014,” said Dan Hammell, general manager. “It is a privilege and an honor to be part of such a distinguished network of clubs, let alone win this award.”
And Hammell said the reason for the honor was simple: the staff cares. “It was a true team effort and a testament to the quality and standards of the PGA TOUR,” he said. “We look forward to providing all of our members and guests the very best golf experience in Las Vegas.”
It’s no wonder that PGA TOUR pros like Charley Hoffman, Kevin Na, Ryan Moore, Bill Lunde, Alex Cjeka, Bob May, John Reigger and others call it a home away from home.
