The Wynn Las Vegas Golf Club was the only golf course on the famous Vegas Strip. It was renowned for its service as well as for its design, with an 18-hole round of golf costing from $350 to $500. The golf course was built on the site of the former Desert Inn course, designed by Steve Wynn and Tom Fazio. It closed in December 2017 to make way for new developments.
Ahead of its anticipated reopening, the Wynn Las Vegas invites golfers to experience the newly revived Wynn Golf Club and be among the first to play the new Tom Fazio golf course design. The 18-hole championship course debuts on Friday, October 11 with a dramatically reimagined topography from the opening drive to the final putt. Guests can now begin reserving tee times as of Saturday, July 13, according to the most recent news release.
Golf icon and course designer Tom Fazio, assisted by his son Logan, crafted a landscape of significant elevation changes set against water features and mature trees that are unique to desert golf. The only course connected to a resort on the Las Vegas Strip, the new Wynn Golf Club sits on the historic site of the Desert Inn Golf Club, a legendary venue for celebrity and pro tour golf dating back to the 1950s.
“We are excited for the next chapter of our storied history with golf at Wynn Las Vegas,” said Brian Hawthorne, Executive Director of Golf Operations. “Golfers of all skill levels will enjoy the many new aspects of the course, which offers a private escape from the fast pace of Las Vegas supported by the five-star service Wynn is known for.”
Golfers with a room reservation at Wynn or Encore can secure tee times 90 days in advance starting Saturday, July 13. Non-resort guests can reserve tee times 30 days in advance beginning Friday, September 13.
The cost for an 18-hole round at the new Tom Fazio course was not disclosed in the recent news release, but for more information on reserving tee times, visit the Wynn Golf Club website.
