Las Vegas National Golf Club



Where do you start with Las Vegas National Golf Club? The history at Las Vegas National Golf Club is as deep as a St. Andrews bunker. The course blossomed to life in 1961 and today is one of the most historic in all of Las Vegas. Many would argue that it is the most historic course in the Las Vegas Golf Region. The aura adds to a course that is a pleasure to play.

It was first called Stardust Country Club and in the sixties and seventies was a hangout for LPGA Tour and PGA TOUR legends in addition to major celebrities including the Rat Pack. Dean Martin was a regular and joining him on the course at times would be Sammy Davis, Jr. and other Rat Pack superstars. Rumor has it that the piano that still resides in the clubhouse (in the Rat Pack Bar and Grill) was played by Sammy and Dean during after-golf parties.

Las Vegas National Golf Club is still worth the play some six decades later and is a golf oasis in the Las Vegas desert. The course is located just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip and is one of the most conveniently-located courses in the area. Hundreds of mature trees shade the course making summer rounds cooler than other Vegas courses, and a grouping of five par 3 hole provide a challenge for all players.

The course was a host site of the LPGA Championship—a major–from 1961-66 in addition to playing host to the PGA TOUR’s Tournament of Champions in 1967 and 1968. The course also hosted the Sahara Invitational on the PGA TOUR for two decades and then was a part of the three-course rotation in 1996 when Tiger Woods won the Las Vegas Invitational. It was Tiger’s first win on the PGA TOUR .Tiger shot 70 during his one round at what was then called Las Vegas Hilton Country Club. Among the other golf legends to have won championships at Las Vegas National are Jack Nicklaus, Mickey Wright, Arnold Palmer, and Doug Sanders.

Las Vegas National offers junior and ladies clinics and is also the home of the Las Vegas Golf Hall of Fame exhibit. Rates for visiting golfers hover around or under $100 making it one of the lower priced resort courses in Las Vegas. Las Vegas National Golf Club has history and value on its side.
