A friend and I "snowbird" in Las Vegas for the last two years. Played this course last year and enjoyed several rounds. Our first round of this year was very enjoyable. Fairways are in excellent condition and greens are in good condition. Staff is friendly and we enjoyed a couple adult beverages in the dated but clean clubhouse. Definitely a course to try if in Vegas.

Saw a great deal on Golf Now for $10.00 plus booking fee and hd to grab it. Glad I did. Arrived at ourse 20 mins before 1:00 tee time but was told of frost delay from that morning so had to wait 20 extra mins.

Once stated round went great at a good pace. Started off on 10th for times sake and worked out great. Greens were in good shape with very few ball marks and rolling fast and true. The greens also held most well hit approach shots but a couple rejected ones that should have held.

Was paired with a couple of out of towners who also enjoyed the course. Good deal for the money I would have gladly paid more. Will return!

Early morning tournament combined with a frost delay caused our round to start about an hour late. That stuff happens. I suggested to the pro shop staff that a couple buckets of complementary range balls would ease our pain of waiting, LOL. Not a chance, which I thought was a little strange. The lady in the lounge made us 4 great Caesars to go and we headed outside . starter and outside staff were awesome. Understanding that they were running behind they delivered 4 large buckets of free range balls and told us they would get us out on the course as quick as possible. Range and practice facility were fine. Once we got playing thought the golf course had a great layout. Fairways were awesome.Bunkers had great sand. Greens were very slow but we had played bears best previous day and they were lightning . the best 4 par 3's on one course in my recent memory. Pace of play was fine under the circumstances. Short cab ride from Las Vegas strip hotels priced very reasonably . I would play again.

I played Las Vegas National on my first trip to LV and really enjoyed it. The course was in great shape and the staff were spectacular. Though the course is older it may be the most storied course in the area. The layout is pretty simple which makes for a nice and easy stroll with great greens for good scoring opportunities. We really enjoyed the National and will be back.

This is a course with lots of great history, on some of the holes they have signs explaining who lived in what houses along the course and some great pictures in the clubhouse. The course is an easy to play course and everyone one of the staff were very friendly. Would play this again, good value for the money.

First off, pro shop staff and cart staff were super, the starter was a complete dick to my group and the group prior to me. That said, the course was GREAT and I will play again the next time I'm in town. I lived on that course when I was about 7 and saw many players like Jack and Arnold playing there. Also, there were many stars and LV elite living on the course back then and there are tributes you can read while you are waiting to tee off, nice touch. When it was called the Sahara CC, you would be having lunch there and you never knew what pro athlete or star would be sitting next to you. The trees are much bigger now, but the sand traps seem a little smaller. Every fairway, tee box, and green was perfect and I was glad to see they continue to take care of this historic course. If the historians did a little more research, they could provide even more reading while you are waiting and maybe put a few pics out on the course of the great players that graced the course.
