Designed on the site of the defunct (and demolished) Desert Inn Golf Club by legendary golf course architect Tom Fazio and Vegas hotel magnate Steve Wynn, the par 70 Wynn Golf Club measures 7,042 yards from the championship tees. The designers had more than 800,000 cubic yards of earth shifted to provide substantial elevation changes, fairway contours, and room for the pipes that feed the waterfall guarding the back of the green on the 18th hole, the course's signature straightaway. Your caddy will likely suggest you play from a less-demanding tee box. Follow his advice.
