Upscale golf and Sin City history meet at Las Vegas National
Las Vegas National Golf Club is one of the first upscale golf courses in Las Vegas, opening in 1961 as the Stardust Country Club. In its illustrious history, Las Vegas National had other names, including Sahara-Nevada Country Club and hosted the PGA Tour's Sahara Invitational, won by the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino and Lanny Wadkins. The course record, 62, is held by Tom Kite and David Graham. Other Vegas showmen and women were known to frequent the club when in town as well. It was the site of Tiger Woods' first PGA Tour victory in 1996.
Now known as "The National," it's located in the heart of downtown Las Vegas and is an oasis-style course with numerous water hazards and thousands of trees. It plays a par-71 and 6,815 yards from the championship tees. The course is home to a driving range and practice facility.
