    Golf Course
There are a lot of interesting facts about Las Vegas' only championship 18-hole golf course, which lies right outside The Country Club for onlooking diners to enjoy. For starters, it's a par 70, totaling 7,042 yards. Tom Fazio and Steve Wynn collaborated in order to produce the premiere course for Wynn's lavish Wynn Las Vegas resort; they worked together previously on Vegas' renowned Shadow Creek golf course, and they outdid themselves on this one. Wynn had some incredibly thoughtful guidelines—he requested that holes run north to south so that golfers wouldn't play into the sun; that water be located below the player; and that existing dirt, not new earth, be used in landscaping the course. Wynn's vision resulted in a phenomenal course at Wynn Las Vegas. Eleven out of 18 holes are in some way meshed with water and a 37-foot waterfall stands majestically over the 18th green, along with thousands of trees and over 100,000 shrubs that were salvaged and added to the course. The result is a comfortable environment that makes guests forget entirely that they're in Las Vegas. While this landscape was previously home to the Desert Inn Golf Club, those who played that course will be hard pressed to recognize it, as this is a completely new and updated course that was custom-built for this Five Diamond, Five Star resort. It's a tremendously beautiful scene that can be viewed while dining at The Country Club.

   
     
    
Waterfall

A cascading semicircular 37-foot waterfall presides over the 18th par four hole on the golf course at Steve Wynn's Las Vegas resort and is at the center of the majestic view from the dining room at The Country Club. That view includes not only the waterfall, but also beautiful floral shrubbery, gorgeous stately trees and the brilliant greens on the golf course below. The view from inside and outside is simply breathtaking; whether you're a golfer or simply a nature lover, the view from your table - if you manage to secure one that's close to the window inside, or one outside on the patio overlooking the 18th hole - is simply spectacular. And because the patio is only open to players with tee times and restaurant patrons, if you dine outdoors you'll never feel burdened by tourists snapping photos of players or the waterfall; this truly is your dining experience to enjoy.
