The Wynn Golf Club in Las Vegas will reopen Oct. 11 after a closure of nearly two years.

The only course on the Las Vegas Strip connected to a resort, the Wynn Golf Club closed in December 2017 after owner Steve Wynn announced plans to build Paradise Park, comprising a hotel addition, convention space expansion and 20-acre lagoon. Most of those plans were scrapped after Wynn resigned as chairman and CEO in February 2018, although the 400,000-square-foot-convention center is under construction and is set to open in 2020.

Legendary course architect Tom Fazio and his son, Logan, crafted a new vision for the reopened course; the elder Fazio designed the original Wynn course back in 2005. According to the Wynn site, "The dramatically reimagined topography offers significant elevation changes set against water features and mature trees for a unique experience for golfers of all skill levels."

The design of the new golf course had to accommodate the convention center, which disrupted a few original holes.

Golfers with a room reservation at the Wynn or the Encore can secure tee times 90 days in advance. Others not staying at the properties can reserve tee times 30 days in advance beginning Sept.13. Green fees range from $300 to $375 in the summer offseason to $550 in peak season.
