Greenskeeper.Org comes to Las Vegas Nevada

TPC Las Vegas Golf Course Review#GKPlays came to TPC Las Vegas last Saturday November 12 2016.  It was a tee time start.  If you weren’t there, you missed a fantastic time of golf, camaraderie, and prizes.

It’s another GK Plays for the record books.  This time GK Plays find ourselves at the lovely TPC Las Vegas.  The weather really cooperated.  According to the folks at the desk, this year’s over-seeding was perhaps the best they have seen in quite a while.  The greens were fantastic, the course conditions were perfect.  It just goes to show you that a good golf course staff that knows how to care for it’s course can really do wonders.

I wanted to also give special thanks to our sponsors and host of this event.  Thanks to Cleveland Golf, Srixon Golf and LINKSOUL for providing the great raffle prizes.  Thanks to Srixon for providing SoftFeel balls to our participants.  Much thanks to Cleveland Golf for providing us their Cleveland Golf wedges to raffle.  Thanks to LINKSOUL for providing some of the best LINKSOUL swag and gear. (Just an FYI I personally LOVE those board shorts LinkSoul sells, and those Srixon SoftFeel wow!) And finally thanks to TPC Las Vegas, your course conditions were definitely a cut above and  your staff was friendly and attentive.  On behalf of Greenskeeper and our members playing, much thanks.

Leg 2 of a Vegas Weekend. Rode the combo tees with my buddies Rick, Pedro and AllanGrant on 11/12/2016. We had the first tee time at 10:50am. POP was around 4 hrs 15 minutes under partly cloudy skies and temps in the mid 70’s–perfect golf weather.

After talking to some employees of the course and some Gk’ers you learn that this course has a lot of PGA tour history including a regular tour stop for many years up until 2006 and 2 rounds of Tiger’s first tour win in 1996. Beautiful driving range, putting green, short game area and clubhouse. Greeted at the bag drop with a smile. Great dinner after the round on a cool patio overlooking the 18th hole.

The fairways were super lush, super green and had perfect lies. They were rated a 9.5/10 for me. Worth the pricetag.

The rough was very lush, green and sticky. Up to 3 inches in some places. Kept in great shape. Rated 9/10

The tee boxes were in very good shape. Lush mostly all level. Rated 8.5/10.

The greens were in great shape. Probably a 11 or so on the stimp. Downhillers very fast. Held shots fairly well. Pure as glass putting. A treat to play on for this golfer. Worth the pricetag as I normally don’t see greens this nice. Rated 9/10.

Was in 3 bunkers all on number 13–lol–fairway bunker was perfectly raked and in good shape. Greenside bunkers also perfectly raked and semi-firm. Good shape. Rated 8/10.

The layout was very interesting. I can see why it was a tour stop. From the combo tees still some forced carries. From the blues can see some more challenges on #3 and #11 from a carry standpoint. Really enjoyed the course–some target shots, risk reward shots, challenging green complexes—just a treat to play– highly recommended.
