This originally was the Stardust Country Club and Golf Course. Then it became the Sahara Country Club and now it is the Las Vegas National Golf Course. The houses in the neighborhood, known as Paradise Palms, were designed by Palmer and Kreisel. This neighborhood is filled with mid-century modern homes, many of them restored. This is where parts of Casino were filmed as the Neighborhood stepped in to portray the Las Vegas Country Club.
Word comes from our good friend Mark Minelli at Sin City Modern that National Golf Course may be endangered.
If you would like to attend a meeting to find out more here are the details:
There is potentially a pending offer on the approximate 130 acres of the LV National Golf Course. Members of the neighborhood are meeting and getting together to discuss some ideas plus it is a great opportunity for everyone to meet!
WHERE: Las Vegas Country Club Clubhouse (Rotunda Room)
Do not enter the LVCC Estates
WHEN: Wed, July 18th 6:00 p.m.
Please tell the guard that you are there for the Paradise Palms Meeting.
Dress code is enforced at the Club, and they will not allow jeans, or flip flops. Please dress accordingly.
There was another meeting of concerned homeowners, neighbors, Clark County Commissioners and the new owners of the National Golf Course. County Commissioner Chris Guinchigliani was the moderator for the evening and still seems to be supporting the home owners.
The new owner, John Knott, says that he supports the home owners as well. His plans: market the Golf Course to tourists. If this idea does not turn out to be profitable then he will begin to explore the idea of building condos on the Golf Course as way to make the property profitable.
Mr. Knott's background is not in operating profitable Golf Courses but in making big money in real estate investment deals.
The homeowners are exploring their legal options and vow a fight to save their homes.
Will all the Preservation Groups in Las Vegas get behind and support the home owners and neighbors? Or will it be a David vs Goliath fight?
