Anybody know anything about the Las Vegas Country Club? That is the one behind the LVH by the convention center.

It's a traditional private country club. During my many visits to LV, I've played about two dozen courses but never could get on this one.

Have been on one golf trip to Vegas and played it - I wouldn't have guessed it was that hard to get on.

Course was fine but nothing you will remember for long - condition was good as you would expect at a CC - staff was attentive and polite - lunch was standard club type food - in my opinion it is a good starter course for a trip. it is close to the airport and the hotels, nothing to get crazy about but will treat you well and provide a solid quality product.

With so many outstanding courses in the area, it's not really a must play.

With so many outstanding courses in the area, it's not really a must play.

I've walked Shadow Creek once for the M.J tournament and really couldn't imagine a place being anymore amazing that's located in Las Vegas. I've heard arguments from the locals that say Cascatta and the wynn is comparable.

I would think Southern Highlands or Dragon Ridge is a bit more tricky than LVCC to get on and play. What LVCC has that they don't, is that it's on the strip and I think that adds to allure of the

course. Unlike Bali Hai, It's on the strip but in a terrible location. Huge aircraft taking off and landing above you can get annoying for such a nice course that can charge 125 to 200 bucks a rack

If you're hip to about and hour drive, I highly recommend coyote springs, you take the I-15 N then exit onto a two lane road for about 35 miles. The greens are ridiculously undulating, 3 putts will rear its ugly head all day long.

    • First round foursome clubchampionship was yesterday. First round is to cut the field to 16 pairs, format Stableford without handicap. You get 3 points for a birdie, 2 for a par, 1 for a bogey. Worse than bogey is zero points. My playing partner had the tee off on hole 1 and hit it left in the water. I had a shot avoiding some trees at 140y from the flag and hit it at 3 feet, par.  After 5 holes 9 points (1 bogey), but then a streak of 3 bad holes and still 9 points. But then 3 pars in a row and all together 11 pars and two bogeys (24 points) was enough to end 5th (best team 31 points).  Next weekend we will play against the team that ended 13th. That will be matchplay. 
    • Does it make sense to write ".........combined together"? Why not just write "............combined"? Let's not call the kettle black. Anyway..... the following are excerpts from The Australian Golf Club's Dress Code. They are not typical of what is expected in Australia, but  some of the snootier clubs are very strict and do little to change the stuffy reputation of the game. ‘Sporting attire’. Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. Closed in shoes must be worn with socks at all times (see Definitions for appropriate socks).  Men - Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Trousers must be tailored and worn with a belt. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. When wearing shorts on the course, Members must wear long socks or short white socks which are either plain or which bear only a Golf Club logo. Anklet type socks are not acceptable. Shoes must be of a type which have been specially manufactured for the playing of golf.  Jeans of any description are not acceptable anywhere in the Clubhouse or on the Course. Children 12 years or younger are exempt.  If you turn up here wearing socks with a small Nike logo they will sell you a pair of plain white ones for about $30.
    • May 27th:- 10 mins full swing practice (Driver). Moved the tee further forward in the stance, and concentrated on sliding the hips to initiate the through swing.  
    • Whether I score better riding vs. walking depends on who I am with. I have two friends who are VERY slow players and if I am in the cart with them for some reason it cost my 5 strokes a round.
