Las Vegas Country Club
It was built on the site of a 1950s horse and automobile racetrack named Las Vegas Park and later the Las Vegas Park Speedway. It was developed by businessmen Moe Dalitz, Allard Roen, Irwin Molasky and Merv Adelson.
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 served as the host for the Las Vegas Invitational golf tournament between 1983 and 1991, and also hosted events on a rotational basis from 1992–1995. The club also hosted the LPGA Takefuji Classic on the LPGA Tour from 2003 to 2006.
The club was sold in 2018 to Samick Music Corp.
