Welcome To The Greatest Green Known To Man
If there is such thing as golfer’s heaven, Shadow Creek is the full embodiment. Built in honor of the traditions of golf, in all its glory and beauty is the Shadow Creek located in Las Vegas. Frequented by the likes of Michael Jordan, Reggie Jackson, Michael Douglas, and George Clooney, to enter into the exclusive Shadow Creek you must be registered as a guest at one of MGM MIRAGE resort properties. From there a private limousine awaits you to transfer you to your prescheduled time. Once you enter the Shadow Creek you are greeted by a friendly caddie who will be your guide throughout your golfing experience. Shadow Creek comes with endless credentials. It was ranked 6th among “American’s 100 Best Modern Courses” by GOLFWEEK in 1997, 8th in 1998, 4th in 1999 and 5th in 2001. Voted #1 Course in the World in 2000 by Robb Report and named by GOLF Magazine as one of the “Top 100 Courses in the U.S.” to many times to count. The list goes on. With huge pine trees lining the fairways, crystal clear lakes and streams, and beautiful foliage surrounding the entire course this golf course is unlike any other in Las Vegas. A golf course that is a Mecca for golf purists everywhere, why don’t you let Dream Car Rentals take you there?
How It All Began
Shadow Creek’s exclusivity had its beginnings all the way back to its completion. When Shadow Creek was opened in 1989, Steve Wynn made it invitation only. Only inviting friends, high-end customers, and business associates and even then they were supposed to keep a tight lid about the course. Even now, to gain access to Shadow Creek you must stay at one of MGM’s hotels (which bought Shadow Creek from Wynn) as well as be willing to drop $500 for a round of golf.
Experience Golf At Its Finest
It was in 1989 by renowned course designers Tom Fazio and Steve Wynn who sculpted this course from the Nevada desert. Shadow Creek is one of Fazio’s greatest masterpieces. It is golf in all of its perfection. Perfect practice areas, tee boxes, fairways, and greens are what make Shadow Creek in a category all of its own. You will see wildlife everywhere on the 18 hole with Bent Grass greens and fairway covered Bermuda Grass, but taking pictures are strictly forbidden.
While every golf hole has its own unique character, the most notable are definitely the two finishing holes. The par-3 17th is a short hole (129 – 164 yards). Lacking in distance it may be but it is far from lacking in challenge. The scenic slender before you is endless green, pure white-sand bunkers, beautiful foliage, and a waterfall that flows into a clear azure lake. All this is contrasted with a magnificent backdrop of towering mountains. Adding to the difficulty to the course play is the elevated greens and tee boxes. The final hole is a par-5, 527 yards long. This picture perfect hole is featured with three lakes. Tension will be high at the last lake which fronts a narrow green surrounded by foliage a bunkers.
Despite great efforts from other Las Vegas golf course developers in their attempts to try to replicate the greatness of Shadow Creek it has never been duplicated. For 17 years and counting the Shadow Creek is undeniably one of the greatest golf courses ever created by man. So what are you waiting for? Enjoy a Las Vegas vacation with Dream Car Rentals today.
