It's home to Bear's Best Las Vegas, designed by the "Golden Bear," legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus. The 7,194-yard, par-72 course incorporates the best 18 holes from other Nicklaus-designed courses and is open to public play.
Corporate executives, celebrities and high net-worth individuals who prefer the exclusivity of an ultraluxurious, guard-gated community make their home at The Ridges.

Red Rock Resort casino and spa, a short drive from The Ridges on the 215 Beltway, offers formal and casual dining options, top-notch entertainment and an award-winning buffet. At a construction cost of more than $900 million, Red Rock Resort ranks among the more upscale off-Strip casinos in Las Vegas.
