This historic course was getting ready to close the next day for overseeding, etc.

Hence the conditions were less than adequate.

I'd give it another chance though, if I were return under different circumstances.

Used to play this club years ago when it was on a sports card. This was the first time in about 10 years. Still an incredible course. Historical! The GM has put up signs on many of the tee boxes, explaining celebrities former homes along the course. That is an excellent touch. Vivien, our on-course beverage lady, was exceptional, as was Donna in the bar after the round. The course was in magnificent shape.

I was expecting a well groomed golf course worthy of a Golf Club and it is Las Vegas after all. To my disappointment it was not what I thought, Many parts of fairway are bald and the greens are slow and although your putts may roll the breaks are unpredictable. Some bunkers are more like dry cement but inconsistent. But for $25 Hot Deal I can't really complain but it is not something to brag about either. It is enough to say "I played the Las Vegas National Golf Club" and give them a shrug of the shoulder when anyone asks "how was it?' That way you preserve the Las Vegas mystique.

The course is fairly long from white tees. Course was decent shape for August. Greens slow from aeration and sand laid, But that happens. What was disappointing is the course layout is fairly straight and simple. Water really doesn't come into play much. For a course that PGA has used I thought it would have more interesting holes. The signs about houses around the course were unclear which they talked about. The houses were either nice or junk. It is an OK curse but probably won't be back till I see others in town. It was 105 and this course has no water on the course. They give you 2 water bottle per cart. Well that isn't enough. I never saw a bathroom stop on first 9. One on back nine is all. Also I prefer a course with GPS on the carts. 150 is only marker in fairways. Some painted lines on cart paths. For $34 it was OK but will not pay full price for it.

The course was in great shape. We got lucky with a cool day in July (unheard of!), just off some heavy rain. The course was in great condition overall, with no real bad spots. There are places where the streams are filled with garbage, which is off-putting, but that was only a couple of holes. We later found out they'd punched the greens two weeks ago, but we hadn't noticed and even commented on their great condition.

When we left, we had excellent service by one of the cart guys which was a great end to the round.

Playing golf where greats like Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and the Rat Pack played was certainly the highlight of this round. The course posted its history at every tee box reminding us of the greatness that was once Las Vegas National.

The lay out was tricky with a since of ease from the tees coupled with target greens surrounded by sand bunkers. Placement is key to shooting low at Las Vegas National.

If you find yourself in Las Vegas with some time to shoot a round of quality golf at a decent rate, check out Las Vegas National. If your a golfer with a bucket list of courses then, this course should definitely be on it. It's history and pro shop museum make for a fun and educational round of golf.

Played here on a Golfnow special, $8.00! They were airating the greens. I was not concerned about the green conditions. Played in July so it was hot but wanted to play the course while in town because it was close to the strip and the nostalgic value. The old Stardust Country Club were entertainers played and lived nearby. Tiger Woods won the 1996 Las Vegas Invitational at the National. I enjoyed the course and the layout.
