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.

We played in January so fairway grass was a little skinny. Nice old clubhouse and friendly staff.

Superb Staff

Even though I accidentally booked a foursome for a Sunday (meant for Sat), Joe was able to pull some strings and got us out the same time on Sat. He turned the day from a disaster to one of the most enjoyable rounds I have played. The layout feels like a PGA course but is not that difficult if you play it smart. The greens were immaculate, the fairways were a little tight (due to the time of year), and the rough was dormant, but completely playable.

Got another t-time set up in a couple of weeks...can’t wait to go back!

A must

So much history at the course that you have to play it at least once. Signs on the course tell the story of certain holes and how the Pros did on them. Someone shot a 14 on 14!! Have to find out yourself. Plus the houses surrounding the course are from old Vegas. Movie stars, other famous owners homes surround it. The course was in good shape. Friendly staff. Pace of play was good.

Great day

We arrived early because we did not factor the change in time from AZ to Nevada.The staff was very nice and allowed my wife to freshen up and use the facility. We had breakfast. The practice balls were included, and it was nice to warm up. I was paired up with a gentleman whose names is Ed. It was a great day of golf and Ed was perfect company, I will be back to play again.

Nice course close to the strip

This course is very close to the strip and is like a oasis in the middle of concrete jungle. Staff very friendly, offers free range balls and bottled water. Course layout is good, with water coming into play in quite a few holes. Signs throughout the course shows historical anecdote, especially what Tiger Woods shot in 1996 to win the Las Vegas Invitational. The pace of play is a little bit slow, we have to wait on every hole. We barely finished before it's dark.

Local Legend

As a Henderson resident this rates as a local landmark. It may not have the glamour of old, but the layout is great and the conditions, even in winter were great too. If you are a local, play here. It’s worth the money and a great experience.

Great Course very close to the Strip

Course was in great condition, greens rolled well, fairways were watered well. Pace of play was good, nice layout need to play target golf on a bunch. Staff was very friendly, good value for the money, temps were good for November 59 and sunny with some breeze. Enjoyed the signs on the tees giving a history of the course and houses adjacent to tees and greens. Overall very solid course at a good price.
