The Las Vegas Country Club is a private membership club located in the Winchester area of metropolitan Las Vegas, Nevada.

History

It was built on the site of a 1950s horse and automobile racetrack named Las Vegas Park 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 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. [3] 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. [4]
