Homes for Sale in Private Las Vegas Golf Communities

Las Vegas has long been known for its luxurious guard gated golf course communities. Here is a brief overview of five of the most popular private golf country clubs in the Valley. 


Spanish Trails - When early pioneers traveled by wagon train through the Las Vegas Valley bound for the California Gold Rush, their route became known as the “Spanish Trail.” Today the guard gated Spanish Trails Golf & Country Club is located on over 640 acres in the southwest portion of the city, only 15 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip. Spanish Trails features eleven separate communities with a wide variety of lifestyle choices: from town homes and condos to elaborate multi acre estates. The Sultan of Brunei constructed a lavish 140,000 square foot compound (yes, really 140,000 square feet!) on 15 acres overlooking the golf course with multiple residences and pools. Many of the home sites command scenic double fairway views. Find Spanish Trails Homes for Sale

Lake Las Vegas - Known as a golf oasis in the middle of the desert and located in Henderson, Nevada near the Lake Mead recreational district, the prestigious master planned community of Lake Las Vegas encompasses over 3,500 acres and caters to those looking for an upscale resort lifestyle. The master plan was developed by Ron Boedekker and the Lake Las Vegas LLC, becoming one of the largest construction endeavors in Nevada history. The lake alone took five years to fill – it was built on top of the Las Vegas Wash which continues to flow under the lake. Construction began in 1987, and today Lake Las Vegas features 19 distinct neighborhoods, and real estate offerings range from custom home sites and waterfront estates to golf villas, luxury condos and town homes. Because of its international reputation as a resort destination community, Lake Las Vegas is home to numerous film stars, TV celebrities, athletes, political figures and a wealth of prominent local business owners.
