    Shadow Creek Club Golf Course Review




    The Shadow Creek Club was built out of the nothingness sort to speak, as it sits majestically on an ideal piece of property in the middle of nowhere in the Nevada desert. The golf course was sculpted out of the desert floor by the world-famous architect Tom Fazio and it can be described as a page of living history, a monument of the eighties extravagance, that still remains Las Vegas' premier layout. The Shadow Creek Clubs golf course spreads over 320 acres of basically barren desert land, about ten miles away north of the Vegas Strip. Usually, golf architects like to speak about finding holes in the golf courses original topography, but at the Shadow Creek Club there were no holes to speak of, or much of anything else actually. The golf course only existed in the architects imagination.

    Tom Fazio worked closely with the owner Steve Wynn, and they both managed to dug a premiere golf course into the desert bed, manufacturing a golf-ecosystem of sorts basically out of nothing, by creating canyons, hills, streams and lakes, planting exotic trees, plants and flowers (over 21,000 of them). They even imported swans, wild turkeys and wallabies, ending up with a price tag of 40 million dollars for their endeavor. The Shadow Creek Club first opened for players in 1989 and it was the hype of the day, that kind of real-estate development even Donald Trump would envy, boasting an inspired design and layout together with some may call the greatest fabrication in golf. But we must give Tom Fazio the credit for composing a perfectly paced golf course, a beautiful routing, perfectly complemented holes and a nothing short of dramatic finish on a virtually empty canvas. To understand what I am talking about, the golf course at Shadow Creek Club must be played, enjoyed, shared and then played again and again. And if youre a true golf aficionado, youll understand and appreciate this courses breathtaking beauty.
