Las Vegas National Golf Club
Arrived and was met in the parking lot by a cart who took my bags to where my foursome was warming up. I went in and paid and talked to Brian a very nice gentleman who let me know the green conditions and how the rate of play was. Hit a few balls on the range and was pleasantly surprised when the starter told us we had 10 minutes as the party in front of us was on the tee box. Promptly at 10:10 we hit off. Never had to wait nor ever felt like we were being pushed. Long par 3's and lot's of long challenging holes. Only complaint was that the greens were very hard, I looked to fix any divot holes and there wasn't one on 18 greens. The greens were hard and had no grip. Sand in the bunkers could use a renewal, it also was a little hard.It was a good day overall with good friends, nice weather and a very fun course.

fair value course
Condition was alright,too many non golfers trying to play and holding up.
Facility has seen better times but still good.

Fairways were in good shape. Pretty small greens. Was a nice contrast to the desert courses I had played the previous 2 days. All things considered I had a very good time. Pace was slow so I played the back 9 twice.

This is the course that Tiger first won as a pro so that was cool. The front 9 from the white tees is long for a hacker like myself. Back was a few hundred yards shorter. Course was in good shape, greens very fast. It seems each green had at least 2-3 big sandtraps surrounding them. Accuracy is important. There are also several holes where water comes into play. I played three courses trip, Legacy, Wildhorse and this one. This was the best of the three. Wildhorse I would not recommend, Legacy was good but slow. I was paired with another single and we finished in just under 3 1/2 hours (A foursome let us play through at 12). I would strongly recommend playing here just for the cool factor and that the rat pack use to hang there.

Great Course For The Money
The first time I played this course a few years ago I played as a single and the weather was more benign. This time I played National two days in a row this time with a playing partner with 25-30 mph winds.Last time I played the white tees (I'm at 71 years), but the course was still a challenge from the gold tees. It, of course, played tougher, but it was still enjoyable. The course was in very good shape and the attendants and starter were very helpful. If you want to play a course that has some challenge but not at the expense of the top courses, this is a good course to play. And it is pretty close to the strip.

Nice course for the money
The fairways were in good shape- some of the T boxes were in rough shape and close to the green you have some areas where the grass in in clumps but overall it was ok. You need some accuracy here as there are houses next to the fairway so one needs to be careful. The par three's are somewhat challenging due to distance. Nice course and I'll play it again. There was no food in the bar though so don't depend on that
