LAS VEGAS, NV – The plush fairways and smooth greens of Red Rock Country Club will play host to regional amateurs Feb. 22-24 in the inaugural Las Vegas World Amateur.
Pro Turf International, the maintenance company for Red Rock Country Club, has all three courses in outstanding shape for the dozens of amateurs who will tee it up in the flighted 54-hole competition. The host courses are the private Mountain Course and two public courses, Arroyo and Siena.
“Our courses are in top condition this time of year anyway,” said PTI’s Regional Superintendent Jared Bumpus. “But they are especially so for this event. We know the players will enjoy competing on these great golf courses.”
Two Arnold Palmer designs – the Mountain and Arroyo await the field for the first two rounds. The final round will be played on Siena, a Brian Curley and Lee Schmidt design. All three courses feature spectacular views of the mountains and the Las Vegas skyline.
The Mountain Course plays over 7,000 yards from the tips. That includes the dramatic 615-yard finishing hole, a challenging par 5 called “The Falls David.” Water, a large fairway bunker and the bordering native desert areas make this a difficult driving hole, and the well-bunkered green makes going for it in two a real risk.
Arroyo provides a slightly different challenge. There are 68 bunkers throughout the course, but most fairways provide ample room off the tee. Golfers need to save their best for last at Arroyo. The 401-yard finishing hole requires accuracy and length, with a tee shot that must carry water. The approach shot should avoid two deep bunkers left of the green.
The focal point of Siena can be seen right out of the gate. Lake Siena is a quarter-mile-long lake with cascading waterfalls on the 1st hole of the course. Siena features an ideal blend of slender and ample fairways, easy and challenging green complexes, and straight and dogleg holes. Maybe the best hole is the last, a 400-yard par 4 that features a lake beside the green that will swallow wayward shots to the right.
