LAS VEGAS – Dec. 8, 2021 – TPC Summerlin, a private 18-hole golf course located just minutes from downtown Las Vegas and host to the PGA TOUR’s Shriners Children’s Open, announced renovation plans to further enhance its award-winning facility.
The renovation will begin April 15, with reopening scheduled for the start of the Shriners Children’s Open on Oct. 3-9, 2022.
“This is an exciting time for our club, our members and our community,” said Brian Hawthorne, general manager at TPC Summerlin. “TPC Summerlin has become synonymous with a world class golf experience and we truly believe this long-awaited renovation will not only improve the on-site experience locally but will boost the appeal for our city when millions tune-in for the Shriner’s Children’s Open next fall.”
The renovation calls for TPC Summerlin, part of the TPC Network (owned, operated and licensed by the PGA TOUR), to re-grass all of the fairways and greens to newer improved varieties. Throughout the renovation, TPC Summerlin’s practice facility, Lifestyle Center, tennis courts, pool and clubhouse will remain open and available to members.
Currently, TPC Summerlin’s existing fairways are made up of the originally planted 419 hybrid Bermuda. The fairways are set to be planted with a newer variety of Bermuda called Bandera. This variety is known for its aggressive growth habit and early spring green up and fall color retention. Its aggressive style will lend itself to faster divot recovery and improved wear tolerance offering a more uniform experience for play. In addition to the fairways, the project will re-grass all Bentgrass greens to an improved variety called Dominator. Dominator is a blend of two high quality Bentgrasses selected for its proven performance in warmer climates and its exceptional density and texture providing superior ball roll characteristics.
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’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 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 clubs 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.
