Las Vegas, Nevada (December 19, 2010)--Las Vegas' Butch Harmon has been named, in a poll of his peers in Golf Digest, as the best teacher in golf for the last decade. For Harmon, who operates the Butch Harmon School of Golf at Las Vegas golf course Rio Secco Golf Club, the honor is deserving because he helps the best golfers in the world reach new heights. But what is sometimes missed as people see him working with the likes of Phil Mickelson, Nick Watney and Natalie Gulbis, is that the everyday golfer can still spend time learning the game from Harmon.

That's right, Harmon can teach you the same secrets and theories that he shares with the world's best golfers. And you learn all of this in a beautiful setting in Las Vegas. The schools take place at the state-of-the-art school facility that is located on the back end of the Rio Secco driving range. There are both indoor and outdoor hitting bays, short game areas, putting green, plus technology is used to breakdown your swing. Also, Harmon, and his talented teaching staff, show you how some of their big name students swing the club, giving you the chance to compare your swing to those of the best in the game. Plus, you will have a chance to tour the facility that features memorabilia given to Butch over the years by his clients, including a picture of Butch drinking out of Stewart Cink's Claret Jug, and signed flags from tournaments won by Tiger Woods, Mickelson and Duston Johnson, among others.

Set schools are offered throughout the year, while certain custom or corporate schools are also available.
Another very large part of the Butch Harmon School of Golf Experience is the on-course lessons that are available as part of the school packages. You have the chance to play Rio Secco Golf Club and/or Cascata, two Rees Jones-designed Las Vegas golf courses that are among the best in the country. Cascata recently received 29 out of 30 points in a ZAGAT survey while Rio Secco is the host of the Wendy's 3-Tour Challenge, when three-player teams from the LPGA Tour, PGA Tour and Champions Tour play against each other in a unique format. Even if you aren't planning a trip to the school, be sure to click to the official websites of Rio Secco and Cascata to learn about reserving your tee times in Las Vegas or Las Vegas golf packages.
PGA Tour star Nick Watney said the following prior to his 2009 season about the state of this game. "I hit the ball fairly well last year, but my putting really let my down. So I worked real hard in the off-season with my coach, Butch Harmon, and it's really been paying off so far this year." Watney went on to win more than $2.5 million and finished 12th on the FedEx Cup points list. His quote reflects those of all of the pros who work with Harmon. And if you act now, you can have your own quote about what it is like to work with Harmon.
There are schools available with Harmon and his staff pros, or schools just with his staff pros. Each experience will help your game and create a lifetime golfing memory. Some of the highlights for 2011 include a savings of $500 per golfer for staff schools in addition to the inaugural staff school that takes place over Superbowl weekend, February 3-6. The school includes extra nights, golf at Cascata, plus a viewing party of the big game at Paris Las Vegas hotel. Click now to view official information about this special school.
