The saying is simple: the cream always rises to the top.

Nowhere is that truer than in Las Vegas. From the golf courses to the resorts to the entertainment and dining, the top-notch variety provided by Caesars Entertainment’s Las Vegas Resorts offers enough options to satisfy anyone’s expectations, whether they live in Vegas or are only planning to visit.

Start off with two stunning golf courses in Cascata and Rio Secco Golf Club, add in 10 outstanding resort facilities, throw in enough food and entertainment options to impress everyone in your group, and you’ve got the makings of a perfect Vegas getaway.

Here are just a few of the highlights:


The Golf

Both Cascata and Rio Secco Golf Club are Rees Jones designs and offer pristine golf conditions and challenges second to none. Whether it’s breathtaking views, risk/reward holes, or elegant surroundings, golfers will be impressed by these two outstanding designs 

“At Rio Secco and Cascata golf courses, our goal is to exceed our guests’ expectations and ensure we are one of the major highlights of their Las Vegas trip,” says Mark Blais, director of sales and marketing for the golf courses. “We aim to provide excellent service and experiences through our partnership with Caesars Entertainment’s Las Vegas resorts, and we are confident we can continue to build loyalty and relationships with our customers.”

At Cascata, a par-72, 7,137-yard masterpiece located just south of Vegas, the golf course melds perfectly with the mountainside surroundings. Jones’ 18 holes roll seamlessly over, around, and through the mountains with strips of brilliant green offset by the stark contrast of the desert landscaping.

While the entire layout is impressive, the 7th and 14th holes are breathtaking. The 7th is a par 3 that plays from an elevated tee to a green that sits at the base of a mountain. To the left is a stream and pond that are both beautiful and deadly. Then there’s the par 4 on the 14th. Standing on an elevated tee, the hole—in all its splendor—is a picture-postcard. A stream along the right side flows into a deep-blue pond that guards the green. Both holes are gorgeous, but deadly.

At Rio Secco, Jones again put together an 18-hole masterpiece. The course stretches out to 7,313 yards from the tips as it winds through the desert, and is as scenic as it is challenging. The par 3 holes on this beauty stand out magnificently. All four are stunning and showcase their own variety of challenges. The 3rd and the 12th play over ravines. The 7th is all carry over a pond while the 15th plays from an elevated tee to a green nestled at the base of a mountain.

Both courses will test even the best players in your group and will definitely make a lasting impression. Through the Caesars Entertainment’s Total Rewards program, members of the program receive discounts on golf every time they play.

While golf is a huge attraction, it’s not just the golf courses that are top-rated. Located across the practice facility at Rio Secco is the Butch Harmon School of Golf. That’s right, the world’s top golf instructor’s home is right here. Maybe you’ve heard the names Tiger Woods and Greg Norman? Harmon helped those two rise to No. 1 in the world rankings in their heydays. He’s also worked with Adam Scott, Phil Mickelson, Natalie Gulbis, Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler, Jimmy Walker…the list goes on and on. Are you next?

After the golf, it’s time to check out the resorts.


The Accommodations

No matter your taste or budget, Caesars Entertainment has a resort to fit the bill that includes world-class dining and impressive entertainment options. With Bally’s Las Vegas to Caesars Palace, Harrah’s Las Vegas, Paris Las Vegas, and the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, the accommodations are high-end but also offer plenty of approachable choices. From a honeymooning couple to a family of four to royalty, the modern accommodations at all of the different resorts—on and off the Strip—give new meaning to elegance.

“Caesars Entertainment Las Vegas resorts offers a wide variety of unique experiences through a combination of excellent service, innovative room product and amenities, celebrity chef-owned restaurants, world-class entertainment, technology leadership, and beautiful golf courses,” says President of Hospitality for Caesars Entertainment Bob Morse. “We are committed to providing our guests with an unforgettable golf experience.”



The show-stopping names that perform at Caesars Entertainment’s resorts are just as jaw dropping as the venues. Countless have seen Celine Dion, Elton John, Penn and Teller, Rod Stewart, Mariah Carey, Jeff Dunham, Jerry Seinfeld, and many more at this venue. Whether your genre is country-western, comedy, rock or just about anything else, there’s an entertaining show here.



We know you’ve got good taste…after all, you’re at a Caesars Entertainment property. Whether it’s casual or fine dining, you’ll find options and tastes that will satisfy everyone’s taste buds.

A myriad of well-known steakhouses such as Old Homestead Steakhouse at Caesars Palace, Center Cut at Flamingo Las Vegas, or VooDoo Steak at the Rio will satisfy any meat-lover. The seafood at Oyster Bar at Harrah’s Las Vegas and the barbecue Virgil’s Real Barbecue at The LINQ Promenade are just as top-notch. For those wanting a buffet, there’s the award-winning Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace.

If you don’t have time for a sit-down meal, there’s faster options as well. Patrons can choose from Nathan’s Hot Dogs, Ben & Jerry’s, Starbucks, and more for those quick bites to eat on your way to the course, shopping, or to see the sites.


After a round of golf or a couple of miles hitting the shopping hot spots, there’s nothing like a day at the spa. At the Caesars Entertainment resorts, the spas and their treatments vary from site to site. But one thing they all have in common is you’ll be pampered from head to toe.



Whether it’s The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace or the Miracle Mile Shops in Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, there is more than enough shopping to fit you, again, from head to toe. Try Chanel, Hugo Boss, Jimmy Choo, Louis Vuitton, Rolex, and many more. Make sure to let the magnetic strip on your credit card cool down a little between stores.

Need more? Take a ride at the High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel, then familiarize yourself with the gaming options and other attractions to make your trip to Vegas memorable.

If you can’t fit it all in, don’t worry…there’s always next time.
