Founded in 1984 by the Blasco family, Spanish Trail Golf and Country Club is one of the oldest facilities in Las Vegas and now the only private, not-for-profit, member-owned Equity Club in town. The family decided on the name "Spanish Trail" because reports indicate the historic Old Spanish Trail, linking the Santa Fe area with Los Angeles in the mid-1800s, cut across the property. Though the Blasco family owned the property for 25 years prior to starting construction, as avid golfers, they always planned to build an affluent resort-style community centered around golf on the site.
The legendary golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr. personally designed this extraordinary 27-hole championship golf course - the emerald-green centerpiece of the Club. Tree-lined fairways, undulating hills, 15 lakes with streams and waterfalls, 120 bunkers, and sweeping mountain vistas create a golf experience like no other. The distinctive 27-hole layout features three nine-hole courses - the Canyon Course, the Lakes Course, and the Sunrise Course. Each of the three nines is configured to create three distinct 18-hole courses. These courses are rotated weekly, providing a variety of play for the frequent golfer. This unique rotation, along with a limited number of golf members, assures easy access to the course at all times.
Spanish Trail's distinguished membership roster includes many of the most affluent and influential residents of Clark County and locales beyond our community. The desire for privacy, unparalleled recreational experiences, deluxe amenities, fine and casual dining, spirited social gatherings, and sanctuary from everyday life is satisfied in grand style.
As a previous host course for the PGA TOUR's Las Vegas Invitational, Spanish Trail Golf and Country Club has welcomed notable players such as Curtis Strange, Paul Azinger, and Greg Norman to name a few.
The newly remodeled 50,000 square foot clubhouse recalls the style of its namesake, "The Old Spanish Trail," in a sophisticated grandeur that says home, offering members and their guests consummate country club amenities and singular ambiance. The luxurious clubhouse provides members with the perfect setting for casual and fine dining, a relaxing drink with friends, or special events and parties. The comfort and convenience make the clubhouse a second home, but the attention to details makes the unique difference that can only be found at Spanish Trail.
In 2007, Spanish Trail began an exciting $15 million renovation that will include a completely renovated clubhouse, course improvements, and additional golf staff. Famed local interior designer Herb Press is leading the re-design of the clubhouse facilities. Under his direction members will enjoy updated member areas, bars and lounges and a complete makeover of the casual and formal dining rooms and banquet facilities. The final polish will arrive in the form of a brand new private dining room and wine cellar.
The course alterations will compliment the infrastructure of the course, and remain in keeping with the original Jones design.
