Southern Highlands Golf Club is a private eighteen-hole golf course and a highly affluent neighborhood in the Las Vegas Valley. The golf course was co-designed by Robert Trent Jones and his son Robert Trent Jones, Jr.[1] It was the elder Jones' final work and only one of four courses they designed together.

It is situated in the southwest foothills of Greater Las Vegas. Most of the homes are strategically placed to avoid being seen from street level.

Southern Highlands is home to multiple gaming executives, real estate developers, professional athletes, actors and actresses, corporate executives, philanthropists, and politicians.

Events and awards[edit]

The country club hosts the Governor's Black Tie Invitational, which raises over $1 million annually for local charities.[2] In October 2007, the course was named "One of the Top Residential Golf Courses in the United States" by Golf Digest magazine. The club has hosted two PGA Tour events.[3]
