Shadow Creek Golf Club is annually ranked as one of the top golf courses in the world. The course is opened up exclusively to MGM Mirage guests in Las Vegas and offers the most first-class golf experience you will find. No detail has gone unplanned and no dollar has gone unspent in this $2.7 billion Tom Fazio-masterpiece.

Shadow Creek has received numerous accolades since its opening. In 2006, it ranked 8th among Golf Week’s “America’s 100 Best Modern Courses” and ranked in the top 20 in Golf Digest’s “America’s 100 Greatest Public and Private Golf Courses.”

Tom Fazio is one of the most well known golf course architects in the world, designing all 18 holes in such a way as to lay perpendicular to both the morning and afternoon sunlight, creating natural shadows that slide across dramatic landscapes. Shadow Creek blends beautifully manicured fairways and expansive greens with towering pine trees, serene lakes, cascading waterfalls, meandering creeks and lush gardens.

Shadow Creek Golf Club has several holes that can be suggested as “signature holes” with a few being the true highlights of your round. The 4th hole is a 553 yard par-5 that bends to the left around a wide lake. Your tee shot will head toward a wide landing area, however, the hole narrows as you approach the green.

The 9th hole is a 409 yard par-4 that runs parallel to Shadow Creek on the left side. Alternate tees on the left and right give golfers options, and the fairway appears tight, however the landing area is generous. The approach to the green challenges you with a green sloping right to left and a back left pin placement. If the pin is located to the front, a false front will guide your golf ball off the front of the green so golfers will have to make sure to carry their approach shot deep enough onto the green.

The 17th hole is possibly the most dramatic on the course. A par-3 and among the most challenging and beautiful you will find. A large lake guards the front of the green, with a massive waterfall in back, with your tee shot from the top of a ridge.

The 18th hole is a majestic 527 yard par-5 that incorporates all of the design elements you will find at Shadow Creek. Alternate tee shot positions, waterfalls and lakes guarding the right side of the fairway, and a long, high ridgeline along the left side are some of the features that bring all of the course’s charm and beauty together on this finishing hole. A dogleg to the right as you reach the green allows for an approach shot over water and bunkers to the long, narrow green.

Shadow Creek is a favorite among PGA professionals and celebrities, with a busy day at the course seeing about 30 players. Shadow Creek will bring guests to the course via their own private limousine and will enjoy their own caddie during their round to help provide a first-class golf experience.
