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.

Classic Las Vegas

First of all, the course was in good condition even the traps were well “fluffed”. The greens had just been aerated but even that small distraction did not reduce our enjoyment.
The history of this course is rich with stories. They have placed placards at several tee boxes with stories of the previous residents. Great stories and some funny ones.

Avoid the weekend

There are too many partiers and snobs that play here on the weekend. The pace of play was not good. They even let a 5 some play. Great course, however. Rich in history and a nice classic layout with a private course feel. You must shape your shots correctly to play tee to green well here. A challenge!

Blue Sky Day

The course was in excellent shape! Played here for 20 years and can honestly say from tee to green it’s never been better. The pin positions on this day were obviously set for a “scramble” because there was no chance stopping long irons to tight pins. GolfNow last minute morning golf worked out perfectly for our twosome and played with a 13 yr old that could bomb it. Great experience all around

Perfect weather

Favorite Vegas Course

Very mature course. Fairways lined with trees. the rough is about 2 inch grass. Fairways were lush/perfect ball sits up high. Greens grass was a little thin but in good shape. Ball rolled good. Look out for water hazards. very cool layout. the sand hazards are unique. This is not a desert course.

Not worth the money, even though it’s close to the strip

Really bad pace of play. Looks like they tried to get everyone out & didn't care how slow it was. Overall the course was like a run-down muni.

Should have been half the price !!

A mature, well managed course

Las Vegas National was Exactly what I had hoped for. The course was in very good shape with some fairly wide tree-lined fairways and plenty of water and sand to challenge all golfers. I enjoyed the historical signs giving information about former homeowners who lived along the course. I was disappointed that after playing 18 holes in about 3 hours/15 minutes, the pro shop was closed at 5:15pm and I was unable to shop for a cap and maybe a souvenir of some kind.

Great Value

Had. 1:20 tee time. Got sent off at 1 pm. Weather was perfect. Staff was great. For being the first good weather we’ve seen here, I felt Course was in great condition. Greens were firm yet responsive. If I had to nit pick, the tee boxes could use some grooming. Course lay out is primarily pretty flat, but great use of bunkers and water. For the $40 local rate, I have no complaints for a smooth round on a Saturday. I will definitely return.
