Welcome to the Las Vegas Golf Club, priding itself with being the oldest municipal course built in the Las Vegas Valley dating back to 1938. I would have to say that any local that has been here for a while has played at the Las Vegas Golf Club. Designed by William P. Bell, who has designed historic courses, such as Torrey Pines and Riviera Country Club, LVGC used to be noted as one of the better courses. Even though it is now considered aged, we feel that with its history, exceptionally low prices, and being that it is one of the only courses in Las Vegas that you can walk, it provides an enjoyable experience. With that said, recently that have spent close to $5 million in improvements including a new clubhouse and many course upgrades.
Playing only 6,631 yards from the back tees and wide-open fairways, Las Vegas Golf Club features certain holes that can deliver some anxiety. Number ten is a par-4 that is reachable from the tee. Bang away and you might start off with a birdie. Number eleven is a par-5, the longest hole on the course at 503 yards. There are trees lining the entire left side, but the right is wide-open. The 12th hole even though just under 100 yards, plays entirely over water. Miss this one short, and you don’ have a chance, get out the SCUBA gear. The course plays like this generally through out. There are six par-4s that play less that 385 yards and three just over 400 yards. Some pine tress stand alone in most of the fairways, but other than that the course is pretty much wide open.
Las Vegas Golf Club is located about 10-15 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip. The facility offers one of the biggest driving ranges in the city, a practice chipping green, and a practice putting green. The club house offers a golf shop, restaurant, and bar serving you favorite cold drinks, or hot for those cold winter mornings. The course runs Bermuda from tee to green. The green have slight to moderate breaks. Enjoy your day at Las Vegas Golf Club.
