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.

Great Day

Looked forward to playing here for the first time. Enjoyed every hole and played with 3 locals (Larry, Curley and Mo). As I played, I looked at all the homes and thought how awesome it must have been to play here back in the sixties. Back to today. Course could have used some maintenance, but did not affect our play. Greens played well. Will play again next trip. Great price on Golfnow.

Good value

Golf now prices were great for this course. Im not sure i would play at full price. Course was in good shape but greens were slow and didnt roll well. I was surprised at all the garbage they have left in the creek running through the course. Totally put me off!! Not their fault but could be their problem. Still enjoyed it for the money but know what your getting into.

Well, the day we played, the greens had been recently aerated , so that explained the outstanding price. Not complaining at all.. great course

6.5 hour round

Seriously, the pace of play was awful. Longest round of golf I've ever played. Very nice staff though. Also not a drop of water on the course as courtesy, which is rare in vegas in 110 degrees. Wasnt happy about that.

HOT time in Vegas

I was super happy with the price, the 18 holes, cart, small bucket and really nice staff. The course is in good shape. The greens, though, were aerated recently so not the best. Additionally, they were not the best grass, but in HOT Vegas, I guess thats what you get. The area around it was a little run down. Tiger won here in 1996, but that was when it was top tier club I bet. Good value.

A friendly course.

More of a locals course than a resort setup. Not punishing but not a pushover either.

Great course for value!

I played three straight rounds during the week.. over layout was good, a bit flat but expected. I would definitely play there again when I return to Vegas. Early tee times were available all three days.

Great round of golf

We enjoyed our round at Las Vegas National. The course was in excellent condition. Greens rolled true and fairways were well manicured. The staff was very attentive to our needs.
