Red Rock Resort supports Shriners Hospitals for Children Open
LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Tournament Director Mark Gardner announced that Red Rock Resort has been named host hotel to the 2008 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open which takes place Oct. 13-19 at TPC Summerlin. As host property, Red Rock Resort will provide a world-class backdrop to various events during the week-long tournament.
"We are delighted to partner with Las Vegas' hottest off-strip resort and the location is perfect for tournament participants and spectators alike, just minutes from the golf course," said Gardner.
Red Rock Resort opened in April 2006 and is the first billion-dollar property to be built off the Las Vegas Strip. The resort was inspired by the natural beauty of neighboring Red Rock Canyon and the elegant desert oasis resorts reminiscent of the mid-20th century. The property is a return to classic Las Vegas, reinterpreted for the 21st century with a contemporary design and the latest amenities, comforts and technology. It features more than 800 guest rooms and suites; an array of nightlife options, including CHERRY nightclub; a 16-screen movie theatre; 9 restaurants; a 25,000-square-foot, full-service spa and Red Rock Lanes, a 72-lane bowling venue.
