A traditional golf course in the land of faux waterfalls, shooting fountains and mountains, Las Vegas National Golf Club is actually part site of Tiger Woods' first win on the PGA Tour.

Las Vegas National was part of the rotation of the Las Vegas Invitational when Woods broke onto the Tour in 1996. Tiger actually won the Las Vegas Invitational (then a 90-hole, multi-course event) with a final round 64 on the private TPC at Summerlin track, erasing David Love III's four-stroke lead.

Average hackers will find a course with plenty of trees in the desert and five inventive par 3s that give National much of its character. This isn't desert golf. It's old school golf with palm trees and sand.

It is also very close to the Strip, just a few turns and about a 10-minute drive away. The area's built up around it with fast-food shops, but the Rat Pack era style remains alive within Las Vegas National's grounds.

"As you pull into the lot at Las Vegas National, the sense of the sixties is evident in the rectangular pastel colored stucco clubhouse that might have seemed modernistic back then, but now is a charming reminder of an architecturally dated style," TravelGolf.com writer Doug Saunders said.

18 years later

Woke up to 30 mile an hour winds but decided to play anyway because I traveled all the way from Maryland. I made a tee time as a single and the other threesome no showed. I played the first nine holes by myself and then join Ed two members for the back nine. We finished in three hours and five minutes. Course is in much better shape in terms of grass , especially around the greens than Desert Pines. The members explain to me the problem with the trash it seems disappointing that no one can figure out how to stop that trash for accumulating in the rivers. Was also surprised to notice that most of the housing has deteriorated in the 18 years since I was there. The members told me they just learn to have to ignore it. I would recommend this course especially with the outrageous prices of most of the popular courses in Las Vegas

LV National GC

I've played several courses around Las Vegas, Henderson and Pioute. LV National is my favorite as I prefer classic 60s style course layout. I will definitely be returning here. I did not have a chance to try the restaurant. From the staff to the carts it was a good experience.

Dated Course

Although this course has historical significance and is located in a very old part of Las Vegas, that doesn’t offset the dated & bland layout, along with being over priced. A stream runs through the middle of the course littered with very unattractive trash (“very smelly” mattresses, sofas, tents, etc.) overwhelming any beauty of what it could be. Also, playing on a Sat., there were times we had 3 groups on a tee waiting to tee off……saw the “host” cart one time with no apparent marshaling effort. I will not return

Where is the ranger?

If they had a ranger they could have addressed a group with 7 men on a tee box. These guys drove their carts nearly on the greens, spraying balls every direction and no sense of ready golf—absolutely clueless! There was a 2 hole gap separating this group and the group they were to follow. Consequently we had a 4.5+hour round and this historically hasn’t been an issue. When the tee sheet is full it’s even more important to enforce no more than 4 in a group.

Must play this course

First off, the weather was perfect!!! Mark and Barb in the bar area were super friendly. Have Barb make you a bloody marry. Outstanding. The course was in fantastic shape. Really wish golfers would fix divots on the greens. That's my only complaint. But that's not the courses fault. Speed of play was just a touch slow, but I'm on vacation. Will definitely play this course again when I come back.

Good course

If.you have not played this course I would recommend it at least once. The cost is a little high but still below most of the Las Vegas Courses.

Perfect course for buddy trip

Short course that requires some accuracy and a variety of shot shapes. Long par 3s and plenty of false fronts. Hole 1 is simply beautiful. An opening par 5 that easily tricks you into writing down 8. Plenty of room off the tee to hit somewhat wayward drives but the rough penalizes. The rough isn’t deep, the grass seems to grow horizontally vice vertically. Greens are fun. Trying to match speed and break was a head scratcher. Some tee boxes have placards that share historical moments, great for photos. Only way to lose a ball is to hit it into the water and 15-20 minutes from MGM section of the Strip.

VERY SLOW Play

I was disappointed at the green... when I played there in December 2020, the course was in much better condition, the green was nice. Yesterday most of the greens were diseased, lumping, bumping, not very nice. Also, there were no course marshal, the starter let a single player out after 2 sets of 4somes (buddies), and before our group which was a 3some and there was 2 some behind us. Instead of putting the single with our group or the 2some behind us, the course was held up every hole. one set of 4some let him played thru, but now he's in between the 2 foursomes, holding up people. Finally at the turn around, after the 9th hole, the 2some behind us left. It was also very hot out and the cart girl last call was before 3pm, when we were only at the 7th hole, due to the hold up.... there need to be a marshal out there or the starter needs to pair up people properly. It was NOT a fun afternoon, waiting and waiting after every hole. I tried to called the pro shop and NO ONE answer the phone.

The old courses in good shape

This was my first time playing here, the course is in good condition fairways are very nice greens don’t hold well but do putt true. There is actually sand in the bunkers and rakes it was strange to play with those open again but this course was a lot of fun and the staff was awesome.

Wonderful Course

All I can say is this is one of the best courses in Vegas pace of play was fast we were done at exactly 4 hours very friendly staff and wonderful restaurant maybe the cart girl could have came around more often only saw her one time but lots of character lots of history overall just a really fun course greens were in great condition for February. Always love to come back and play this course. Felt sorry for the girl selling the hotdogs at the snack bar somebody turned her in for not wearing her mask properly and she was not having a very good day because of that not sure why people have to be mean to other people but she was awesome to us even though she was feeling bad... Don’t be mean people!

Greens need some help

The history of the course is superb. The greens need some help but it is mid-winter even in Las Vegas. I really enjoyed the round with plaques on several tees showing what stars lived in the houses, what movies were shot there. The Bar afterwards with all the photos of stars, players, etc. is most impressive.
