Vegas Happens Here

THE LVCC - THE Place to Be in LV

The Club became the home-away-from-home for Las Vegas’ kingmakers, developers, bankers, mobsters, doctors, lawyers, and seemingly every other notable Las Vegan who has made an indelible impact on the city—and sometimes the world--over the last five decades. When taken as a whole, the men and women of The Las Vegas Country Club, more so than any other private club, helped shape not only a dazzling future of a country club, but the future of a burgeoning city that was well on its way to making an international impact.

Established in 1967, our Club began as the Las Vegas International Golf and Tennis Club and was founded by former Boston Celtics owner Marvin Kratter. In those early days, Dean Martin played the course on a daily basis establishing the Club as a place to be and be seen.

In 1970, the members bought the place led by legendary Las Vegas figures Merv Adelson, Moe Dalitz, Irwin Molasky and Allard Roen. It was then the Club became the social hub of Las Vegas and part of the fabric of the community.

In 2017, the membership sold to the Samick Music Company and an exciting new era dawned with renovations and new excitement all over the entire property and membership.  This includes recently purchasing the exact replica of the FBI plane that landed in the middle of the lake on the 10th hole and placing it in the lake with a plaque describing the bizarre story.

The constant has been the quality and prestige of the Club, anchored by the playing of 19 PGA Tour and LPGA Tour tournaments—including the first million-dollar purse in PGA Tour history in 1983—with such champions as Greg Norman, Paul Azinger, Davis Love III, Lorena Ochoa and Cristie Kerr.

Another constant was the importance of the Club to overall Las Vegas. In the pages of the coffee table book, The Las Vegas Country Club: Chronicle of an Icon, dozens and dozens of stories about major business deals, huge wagers, tour tournaments and much more is chronicled and details how the Club played a main role in Las Vegas’ evolution.

“This is the story of Las Vegas as told from the fairways and tennis courts,” said longtime member Michael Saltman.
