Named by Golf Digest as “One of America’s Best Golf Courses,” TPC Summerlin and its championship layout continue to redefine the private golf club membership experience in Las Vegas. The par-72, 7,243-yard golf course is home to the PGA TOUR’s Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. TPC Summerlin’s layout was carved from a magnificent swath of rugged desert terrain by renowned golf course architect Bobby Weed which meanders through arroyos and canyons, with lush bentgrass greens, striking flora, numerous water features, an abundance of honey mesquite and pine trees contrasting dramatically with undisturbed desert washes – creating one of the most visually stunning tests of golf in Nevada. TPC Summerlin’s golf, amenities and exceptional member benefits make it one of the most coveted private club’s in Nevada where members enjoy a sense of community, camaraderie and belonging that come with participation in exclusive members-only golf and social events throughout the year.
