    Hi everyone,

    Just wondering if anyone's been to this event in previous years & if so what's the set up/viewing like & is it worth a trip out for a day?
    Any idea if they offer transport to & from the strip to the course?

    Thanks

    It's one of the best viewing venues on the tour, mostly because attendance is low, and the way it loops from 15-18 -- and notably the approach on 16 through 18 -- you can see a lot of action rather easily.

    I don't know about tourney-designated Strip shuttles, but GA parking is at Suncoast then they shuttle from there to TPC Summerlin.

    Thanks very much for the info, I have a hire car so shouldn't have a problem driving out & catching the shuttle.

    You are welcome.

    Half of the inward nine is rather boring, so unless you just like to stroll along with groups, no really need to chase down 10-14. The outward is actually pretty cool along its middle stretch. But again, you can catch 'em on 1, 9 and 15-18 without a ton of effort.
