Located on the west end of Las Vegas, TPC Summerlin was specifically designed with the idea of hosting PGA Tour events which it does each fall.  The layout is a fair test of golf with gentle elevation changes and the strongest holes later in the round.  There is a housing development around the perimeter of the property that comes into view on several holes but is removed enough to not factor into play much.

What to Expect:  TPC Summerlin is one of the courses that Bobby Weed was asked to design for the PGA Tour as part of their TPC network. TPC courses are designed with hosting PGA Tour events in mind, which Summerlin does each year. Common to TPC courses, the best holes are found late in the round in an effort to create drama on Sunday afternoons. A dozen of the opening 14 holes aren’t overly memorable which is common among TPC courses since they are designed to test the top players in the world as opposed to focusing on beauty, creativity, or variety. The final four holes however are gems and feature a driveable par four, a risk/reward par five, a water laced par three, and a strong finishing par four. Homes line the perimeter of the course and the track features gentle elevation changes throughout. When all is said and done, I don’t have any big complaints about the design at TPC Summerlin but there is little to fall in love with either. It works well for its purpose, a PGA Tour caliber test, however if you are looking for a first-class experience or stellar golf holes then there are better options in the Silver State.
