Cascata golf course in Las Vegas is a Rees Jones course owned by Harrah’s.
Cascata opened in 2000 and lives up to its name. “Cascata” means “waterfall” in Italian, and the tee box on the par-3 15th hole will tell you everything you need to know about water on this course.
A 418-foot waterfall flows from the steep mountainside, tumbling over mammoth boulders, cascading into a river that roars through the clubhouse, eventually culminating in a tranquil stream. It’s no wonder Sports Illustrated called Cascata “golf’s hidden treasure.”
The Las Vegas course is consistently ranked high on all the “Best of” courses by golf publications.
