Shriners Hospitals For Children Open October 8-11, 2020

Shriners Hospitals

“I’ve lost three playoffs. This is my first playoff win. I kept telling myself this is the playoff I’m going to win.”

– Kevin Na

Location & Course Information

Las Vegas, Nev.

TPC Summerlinn

Noted architect Bobby Weed designed TPC Summerlin with player consultant Fuzzy Zoeller in 1991. The strategic layout was carved from a swath of rugged desert terrain, meandering through arroyos and canyons.

Yardage: 7,255; par 71

Notable Course Features

The four-hole closing stretch features classic risk-reward challenges starting with the drivable par-4 15th. The par-5 16th is reachable in two, guarded in front by a pond. While the last two holes don’t offer as many birdie opportunities, water is very much in play on the par-3 17th and par-4 18th.
