Attraction details
Owner description: Play where Tiger Woods won his first tournament, and the "RAT PACK" played and entertained. When you play golf at Las Vegas National Golf Club, you will forget you are in the desert. This exquisite championship golf course, conveniently located only 5 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, is the former host of the PGA Tour’s Tournament of Champions, Sahara Invitational and the Las Vegas Invitational. Classic in design, this course combines rolling fairways, glistening lakes and greens well protected by palm, pine and olive trees. Just after completion in 1961, The National, then called the Stardust Country Club, hosted its first professional golf event, the LPGA Championship. From that date forward history was made. The layout, designed by Bert Stamps, is traditional and is a challenge for the best of players. The National has become a landmark over the last 50 years. It was host to the movie “Casino”, starring Robert DeNiro, Sharon Stone and Joe Pesci. Use a Cart, GolfBoard, or Scooter.

We checked in for our 1200pm tee time. After the 7th hole, three slow golfers took us until 3:20pm to reach the 12th hole. We even told the golf ranger about the very slow pace. The ranger did nothing about the issue. The ranger claims they had a tournament in the morning, but we could see that the course was almost empty. We decided to leave and attempt to get a refund for a BAD golf course and staff. We spoke to the golf shop person, don't even know if he was a manager or not. He did not want to refund our money and claims he will give a rain check instead for the holes we did not play. I expsressed that is unacceptable due to your lack of concern towards the CUSTOMERS! We left and we will never come back to this golf course again.

We enjoyed the layout of the course as well as the length. Only mistake was we played shortly after they over seed. We paid $79 for 18 holes and cart. I don't think it was worth that based on the current conditions. Just don't pay that much when they have over seeded. The greens were very slow since they were not mowing it.

Dear September,
Thank you for taking the time to comment on Las Vegas National. I apologize for our slow greens, as we did not mow them until the 2nd day to give them some more protection. I hope our clerk at check in informed you that we had just come out of overseed, and that it was "Cart Path" only; and that they gave you drink tickets for any inconvenience you might have going out on the course.
Again, thank you for your comment.
Coy Wood
General Manager

Las Vegas National was my first golf experience in the Las Vegas area. After doing a lot of research, I decided on this course because it was reasonably priced, challenging from the back tees and was not going through overseeding yet.

Pace of play was right on target for the course and there were Hosts making sure groups kept up.

Another plus was the accessibility of beverages as they had a drink cart on each 9.

I look forward to playing here again next time I am in town.

A truly great place for a visitor to play a fun round of golf. A show place of golf history on display in the club house including Tiger's first win.
A staff that is more than just helpful but will make a person feel like they are at home in their own resort.
The course is not long but is really a good test for the intermediate or high handicap golfer from the middle tees. The longer pro tees will test anyone.

We almost didn't play here because of some of the negative reviews. When we arrived, we were greeted by the Marshall and directed into the Pro Shop. All seemed good.
The negative comments we had read were about the litter in the creeks and the scruffy houses around the course. These were valid.
However, we enjoyed the course, and would play it again.
