configuration for the Las Vegas area.

$150 million development that used to have a golf course. The golf course was sold to the
Rio Hotel, and is now called the Rio Seca golf course. Homeowners
have gone to court, contending that at the time of their purchase golf privileges were
implied. A judge has recently ruled that Seven Hills homeowners can play the course,
however the green fees will be $300. There may be continued litigation. This
