Photos: Wynn Golf Club in Las Vegas, home of The Match: DeChambeau vs. Koepka


As with the enveloping and ever-changing skyline of the Las Vegas Strip, much of Wynn Golf Club is relatively new, despite golf having been played on the site since 1952 when it became the Desert Inn Golf Club. 

Steve Wynn purchased the resort in 2000, and the Tom Fazio-designed Wynn Golf Club opened in 2005. But that layout was shuttered in 2017 as the operators of the adjacent Wynn Las Vegas hotel and casino considered other uses for the ridiculously valuable land on which the course sits. 

After scrapping plans to build a lagoon on the site with new hotel rooms and restaurants, Fazio and his son, Logan, were called to breathe fresh life into the abandoned track just the length of a par 4 away from the Strip. Wynn Golf Club reopened in 2019 with eight new and 10 refurbished holes.

Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka will square off in a 12-hole match at the Wynn on Friday, Nov. 26. TNT’s presentation will be simulcast on TBS, truTV and HLN, as well. Live coverage will start at 4 p.m. ET.

Check out some photos of the course.
