Review of the Wynn Golf Course

Fake grass? You must be joking.

Not that an artificial find at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip is surprising. We’ve got fake New York, fake Venice and a fake Medieval castle. There’s a fake volcano. Even fake lagoon-like mirages surrounded by fake breasts.

But fake grass on a Tom Fazio golf course, a track fabulously funded by the man who changed the face of high-end resort golf with the incomparable — if not sometimes a bit too ‘high-roller’ for its own good — Shadow Creek?

Thank the Golf Gods it was only the practice tee. And rumor has it that Steve Wynn — in bigger-and-better-than-anyone-else Steve Wynn fashion — is already considering a dazzling upgrade to his handful of scaled-down warm-up bays: computerized simulators for each player.

But for now, golfers who ante up the five C-notes (and another couple hundred bucks minimum for a required room) to compare the Fazio-Wynn collaboration’s Strip-sized followup to Shadow Creek will have to settle for a really big net and their own small section of artificial turf.
