One thing to remember is that the Las Vegas summer heat is a dry heat and with water, a wet towel, a hat, and suncreen your round will be enjoyable. Also, if you tee of in the morning you will be teeing off in temps of only about 75-85 degrees and the heat will gradually increase throughout the round.
Las Vegas National Golf Club is nestled in the heart of the city of Las Vegas just minutes away from the Las Vegas Strip. It is a traditional, oasis styled golf course with thousands of trees which places a premium on ball position. Las Vegas National has fairways that meander in the shadows of proud palm trees and greens that are flanked by bunkers.
Two beautiful lakes come into play on four of the holes making them very challenging. Five intriguing par 3's offer a stern test while four mid-length par 5's offer a good chance for par or birdie. When the PGA TOUR played at Las Vegas National, Arnold Palmer's favorite hole was the driveble par 4, 13th.
In addition to being the previous home of Tour events, National is home to the Las Vegas Golf Hall of Fame exhibit. Also on site is the Rat Pack Bar and Grille, named in honor of the Rat Pack (Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., etc.) who used to play and party at the course and in the clubhouse.
