The oldest course in the valley, Clark County's Las Vegas Golf Club (est. 1938) presents the quintessential player-friendly golf experience, but with something new: $5 million in recent improvements, including a new clubhouse and course upgrades. Several mature cottonwood and pine trees stand sparsely along the virtually bunkerless fairways. Thirty greenside bunkers add a degree of challenge, but the greens also are pretty accessible, with generally slight degrees of undulation. This is a perfect course for a relaxing, forgiving round.
