Everyone loves to Double Down in Vegas. Put it all on the table and let the fate of the cards take over. Well, a sure bet where positive fate vibes aren’t needed this summer in Las Vegas golf is the Down Down golf package at the two Rees Jones gems, Rio Secco and Cascata. You can’t lose with the one-low-price-for-two rounds package for Vegas visitors, now just $299. a potential savings of several hundred dollars off primetime rates. Right now it’s better than a two-for-one bargain at two of the best courses in the Las Vegas Golf Region. — By Bill Bowman, Las Vegas Golf Insider staff.
The deal, which costs $299 and runs through Aug. 25, 2019, lets Vegas visitors enjoy huge money savings. The package is one round of golf on each Cascata and Rio Secco–both designed by the U.S. Open Doctor–with only a minor stipulation that the rounds must be played within five days.
“It’s an amazing deal for those avid golfers looking to play more than one round of golf on the same trip, but who may not want to play the same course,” said Mark Blais, director of marketing. “This gives them variety on two great golf courses.”
With players paying around $399 per round at Cascata during the peak seasons, this deal is a steal. You’re getting the round at Cascata for a reduced rate and then getting to play Rio Secco basically for free.
Cascata, which opened its doors in 2000, is a par-72 layout that stretches out to 7,137 yards from the tips. Every hole is visually stunning and features dramatic elevation changes course-wide. Water features and immaculate bunkering adds to the beauty as well as the challenge. Upon opening, Sports Illustrated called it golf’s hidden gem.
Rio Secco, which opened up in 1997, is also a par-72 course. This one reaches 7,313 yards and features par 5s that are impressive risk/reward holes. Add in par 3s that will test players’ accuracy and distance control and you’ve got the whole package. Again, elevation changes come into play on many holes around the course. A recent multi-million dollar renovation has the course in sweet condition and Jones oversaw the project and legendary instructor Butch Harmon, who operates his school at Rio Secco, provided input.
This is one of hottest golf deals of the summer and should be at the top of your must-play list.
Note – (There are certain blackout dates and the deal isn’t valid with large groups. Also, there is a fee and gratuity, usually $50 per bag, for a mandatory caddie at Cascata).
