A BUCKET-LIST ROUND OF GOLF!
There’s a reason that Shadow Creek is the most expensive round of golf available – the experience and the service. Operated by MGM Resorts International primarily for its high-rollers and celebrities, regular access to this elusive course is extremely limited, but GNEX Conference has arranged for a small group of attendees – that are prepared to pay for the privilege – to experience this incredible desert oasis while creating lasting memories together.
Players will be transported by luxury limousine from The Bellagio to Shadow Creek, where upon arrival they will be greeted by their caddies for a golfing experience they will never forget. Teams of four will play a variation of the Texas Scramble, where both individual play and team play are rewarded – all players can continue play (as normal) from the best tee shot of the four players, but a set number of drives of each member of the team must be used during the course of the round. This will make for a competitive and strategic round of golf, while accommodating all skill levels.
Shadow Creek is an 18-hole golf course in North Las Vegas, Nevada, designed by Tom Fazio and built by Steve Wynn. It opened in 1989 and was built on a 350-acre (140 ha) site, at a reported cost of sixty million dollars. This course is the golf world’s version of Area 51 and seventh wonder all rolled into one. The hush-hush exclusivity and high-roller price tag has made it a favorite amongst the biggest names in golf and celebrities who marvel at the setting — a giant man-made dug-out in the Nevada desert, split by creeks, dotted with lakes and populated with thousands of imported trees; a true engineering feat!
Despite being highly ranked as a top course to play, Shadow Creek actually tries NOT to draw attention to itself – but that in itself adds to the allure. Join us in Las Vegas for a bucket-list round of golf.
