History[edit]

It was built on the site of a 1950s horse and automobile racetrack named Las Vegas Downs and later the Las Vegas Park Speedway.[1] It was developed by businessmen Moe Dalitz, Allard Roen, Irwin Molasky and Merv Adelson.[2]

The 18-hole golf course was completed in the fall of 1967, followed by the completion of a 44,000-square-foot (4,100 m2) clubhouse in April 1968. The clubhouse architect was Julian Gabrielle; the golf course designer was Edmond B. Ault. Amenities include two pitching and chipping greens, a 9,500-square-foot (880 m2) putting green, Indoor and outdoor tennis courts, racquetball, swimming pool and a complete exercise facility.

The club hosted the LPGA Takefuji Classic on the LPGA Tour from 2003 to 2006.
