The world-class Southern Highlands Golf Club is a prestigious course with an unmatched experience, promising privacy and indulgence in the secluded foothills of Las Vegas. With membership, you can expect a traditional, exclusive club experience, including caddie, valet service, and the excitement of playing on a nationally recognized course.
Membership often has a waiting list, because Full Golf Members have unlimited access to all Club facilities, including golf course, driving range, practice facilities, fitness, tennis, swimming pool and other recreational amenities. Other membership options include the Young Executive Membership for those under 40, which includes all the amenities and benefits of the Full Golf Membership.
The Resident National Golf Membership is for those who belong to another Country Club and have a primary or secondary residence at least 200 miles outside Las Vegas. Resident National Members receive the same amenities and benefits as a Full Golf Member but with limited rounds of golf.
A Sports/Social Membership is also available if you’re interested in other amenities more than golf. Sport/Social Members get unlimited use of all the Club’s facilities, including full-service fitness center, state-of-the-art cardiovascular center, group exercise & yoga studio, private training studios, luxurious spa services & treatments, lighted outdoor tennis courts, swimming pool, private poolside cabanas and outdoor hot tub as well as a children’s swimming pool and play area. This membership also offers a full range of social activities and events to take advantage of, including specialty dinners, themed parties, social gatherings and group outings.
Built in 1998, this course transformed an open piece of desert into a rival for the world’s best golf experiences in both play and beauty. Over the years, the Southern Highlands Golf Club has received many awards for both the course and the clubhouse.
The 42,000 square-foot Tuscan-style Clubhouse at Southern Highlands Golf Club projects a luxurious and soothing ambiance. This exclusive retreat has expansive picture windows, high wood-beamed ceilings, and a graceful stairway leading to elegantly furnished dining rooms with world-class amenities and personalized service. The Southern Highlands Country Club caters events of all sizes, from backyard barbecues to elaborate celebrations, with custom-built creative menus.
If you’d rather get outside with no memberships or greens fees required, there are plenty of options. The Southern Highlands Master Planned community is home to the six-acre Somerset Hills Park, featuring tennis courts, gazebos with barbeques, covered play park and a water spray park, operational from May to September.
You’ll also find the Southern Highlands Dog Park and several lush neighborhood parks, including Inzalaco Park, the Goett Family Park, the Jimmy Pettyjohn Jr. Park, Stonewater Park and Olympia Sports Park. The latter boasts lighted soccer fields, basketball court, workout stations, a hilltop trail, shaded family picnic areas, playground structures and water play features, also open May through September.
Another popular luxury community is The Villages at Southern Highlands. The Villages’ distinct neighborhoods offer superior home design and construction created by Southern Nevada’s top premier builders.
A newer neighborhood starting to attract attention is The Cove at Southern Highlands. The original homes in this gated community include six floor plans built by Pulte. Options range from single-level two-bedroom homes at just over 2,000 square feet to large 3,400 square-foot two-story homes with four bedrooms. Home prices start at $375,000 and go as high as $500,000.
When you want to venture out for shopping, nightlife or travel, it’s a quick 10-minute trip to the South Strip, McCarran International Airport, or the acclaimed Town Square outdoor shopping area. This “city within a city” mecca of shopping, dining and entertainment is a favorite hangout for locals and a must-see destination for tourists.
You also have easy access to all the major freeways, including the I-15 and 215. That means you can quickly get away to the Sloan Canyon National Conservation Area or the Lake Mead National Recreation Area by heading east, or go west to the breathtaking Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. You can also be in California or Arizona faster than you thought possible.
The nearby Blue Diamond Road offers a back way to Red Rock, and has also seen exceptional business development in recent years. This includes large shopping plazas with offerings from home décor stores to office supplies to everyday household needs, as well as plenty of bars and restaurants.
