Las Vegas, Nev. (Aug. 25, 2016)–If you’re looking for that country club atmosphere on a luxurious golf course–one without the hidden costs and fees–Rio Secco Golf Club has a program that fits the bill. It’s time for golfers to check out the EPH (Executive Pass Holder) Program at the Rees Jones course located in the hills above Las Vegas. –By Bill Bowman.
The EPH Program costs $5,000 and gives players unlimited golf for a 13-month period. And the better news is there are no cart fees or other added costs. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details or to sign up today.
Plus there’s more. Non-resident guests of EPH members receive a 50% discount off the prevailing resort rate and resident guests receive 10% off the local rate. And even if you’re not playing a particular round, your unaccompanied (non-resident) guest can still play with a 25% discount.
Members also receive 25% off non-sale merchandise in the golf shop, 25% off food and beverage in the clubhouse and a personalized locker.
“This is definitely for those who are looking to play some of the best golf holes in Las Vegas without the commitments, obligations and hidden fees,” said Mark Blais, director of sales and marketing. “There are no restrictions, we don’t hide fees and there’s no lifetime commitment.”
And the program signup isn’t your normal 12-month plan. This one is 13 months. Why? Well, that’s simple. “We know we’re closed for 17 days for annual over-seeding,” Blais said. “And we will have an occasional course buyout here and there but with the extra month, that will more than compensate for those days. We want everyone to feel valued when they play here.”
Rio Secco is a Rees Jones designed layout. The par-72 course reaches 7,313 yards from the tips. The course features holes that play through steep canyons, play along plateaus overlooking the city and holes that play across desert washes.
One of the course’s best holes is the par-4 11th. Playing a knee-knocking 478 yards, this one starts from an elevated tee with a Las Vegas Strip view. The hole fades to the right with bunkers guarding the landing area on the left. The approach shot will be into an undulating green with bunkers coming into play right and long. Accuracy is a must to score well on this hole.
With this one and 17 more gorgeous challenges awaiting players, it’s no wonder the EPH program is expanding. “It’s a very popular program,” Blais said. “It definitely offers players a lot of value.”
And if you’re game isn’t quite up to par, that’s no problem. The famed Butch Harmon School of Golf is located on site. The world’s most renowned instructor has worked with many of the game’s top names–does Tiger Woods ring a bell, or Jimmy Walker, Brandt Snedeker, Natalie Gulbis or one of the many other Tour players who have hoisted trophies on Sundays.
