Just minutes from the Strip and equi-distant from Eastern and Western residential areas, views to the Strip, South-bound landing traffic at McCarran, Western mountains with Mt. Charleston as well as the historical markers explaining interesting owners of adjacent properties makes wait time between holes pleasantly bearable. Course staff attentive.

The attraction of playing here waa to take in the history of this old-school course, and that did not disappoint. However, if this course were anywhere else, it would cost $40 to play, not $99. The overall conditions were just average. Beware of the bunkers, many are not raked, and they are extremely inconsistent, most are hard pan with very little sand. Then some have a lot of sand, which is really more like crushed rock. Don't take your gamers there if you don't want to scuff them up.

The pace of play was poor, tee boxes sometimes had 2 groups waiting. I would not return to play here given the chance.

We're sorry to hear you experience was not up to your expectations due to the pace of play and the bunker conditions you may have experienced. We are working towards the best conditions possible and will address these concerns here at the course. We do hope you give us another shot though, we want to give you a much better experience if you choose to return.

This course was the site of the PGA Las Vegas Invitational in the 1960s.

Also, the golf scenes in Casino were filmed on this course. Lots of history and interesting facts.

The course itself was in better than average condition. The greens were fast, but fair. Overall, moderately challenging and a nice round.

Very well maintained course... The people were extremely nice. The Marshall had to speed us up and was very nice about it. He was right we were playing slow but after telling us we caught up with the group ahead of us. The course itself is absolutely fantastic. There are several houses on the fairways that are in bad need of repair but the course beauty certainly made up for it. Greens were just as nice.
