LAS VEGAS (Nov. 22, 2019)–With the holiday season fast approaching, it’s time to look for that ideal gift for the golfer on your list or possibly just a splurge for yourself and your golfing friends. Check out the Double Down package at Cascata and Rio Secco. This package gives players the chance to play two great Las Vegas golf courses for one low price. You can bet this is one holiday gift that won’t be returned.–by Bill Bowman, Las Vegas Golf Insider.
The Double Down Vegas golf deal includes one round on each of the two fabled Rees Jones layouts, Cascata and Rio Secco. The rate for the offseason deal is $319 and is good through January 29, 2020. Both of these gems were designed by legendary architect Rees Jones.
Cascata opened its doors 20 years ago in 2000. It’s a par-72 layout that reaches 7,137 yards from the tips. Each of the 18 holes offers impressive views along with dramatic elevation changes. An array of water features and bunkering add to the beauty and the challenge.
Rio Secco, also a par-72 layout, opened in 1997 and can stretch out to 7,313 yards. The par 5s are daunting risk/reward holes and play well alongside a variety of par 3s that will test players’ accuracy and nerves. Rio Secco is also the home to the Butch Harmon School of Golf. Harmon has been the world’s No. 1 instructor for many years and his stable of past and current students is impressive. Harmon also recently consulted on a Rio Secco renovation with Jones.
There you have it: That ideal holiday gift…or in this case, gifts…for that golfer on your holiday list. Or even for yourself if you’ve been especially good this year.
Now if only shopping for a present for Aunt Martha was this easy.
