My first impression with the TPC at the Canyons clubhouse from the outside was very classy and understated. Then you are reminded this is a PGA Tour facility and course by the posters from the Michelin Championship and TPC pin flags. Located in Summerlin about 20 minutes west of the Strip, TPC offers a quality golf experience through their excellent service and quality playing surfaces. There are several hotel casinos close to the course and very easy to do a stay and play package in Summerlin.
But let's talk about the golf. It is a great desert golf experience with many trees, deep canyons and even water!!! Multiple sets of tees accommodate every level of golfer from beginner to single digit handicaps. There are still many "gut check" shots to be had from any tees. The subtle changes in elevation along with the desert breeze will have you debating club selection often. Due to a slightly higher elevation than the Strip area, TPC is able to maintain bent grass greens which provide a faster, more consistent putting surface. It a great feature of the course.
I encourage anyone that comes to Vegas to get away from the Strip for a few hours and play one of PGA Tour's finest facilities. You can find more information on Las Vegas golf and book a golf getaway at the TPC Canyons at www.golfzoo.com
