Las Vegas, Nevada via remote submission in La Jolla, California (August 9, 2012)–Las Vegas National Golf Club is about as historic as it gets in Las Vegas. A major championship on the LPGA Tour was held there, Tiger Woods played there en route to his first win on the PGA Tour, and in the hey day, the Rat Pack–Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., etc.–hung out at this Las Vegas resort course and in the clubhouse. The management of Las Vegas National Golf Club–located minutes from the Las Vegas Strip–is embracing that history and word is that the inaugural Sammy Davis Jr. Foundation Charity tournament will hit the fairways in December. –By Brian Hurlburt
Las Vegas National Golf Club is also the home to the Las Vegas Golf Hall of Fame exhibit and was the site for the PGA Tour's Tournament of Champions on two different occassions. The greens and fairways of Las Vegas National meander through the historic Paradise Palms neighborhood in the heart of old Las Vegas.
