The Las Vegas Country Club is a storied historic hangout.
The iconic Las Vegas Country Club has a new owner, and as a result, the historic hangout is getting a face-lift. The club has been a longtime hub for the social elite—from trailblazers to doctors, celebrities to mobsters—and was sold in 2018 to the Samick Music Corporation. It was initially owned by Las Vegas powerbrokers Moe Dalitz, Irwin Molasky, Merv Adelson and Allard Roen.
Club president Baik Lee is determined to preserve the storied Las Vegas landmark. “One of the main reasons we purchased Las Vegas Country Club was because of the deep appreciation of the amazing club history,” he says. “We’re extremely pleased with the results.” Already there have been two multimillion-dollar renovation phases, including the modernization of the clubhouse and a recently unveiled statue of Dean Martin—sanctioned by the Martin family—who frequented the club along with his Rat Pack cronies.
At the recent Martin statue unveiling, Mayor Carolyn Goodman pointed out the history of the beloved golf course and its permanence in the city’s landscape. “Las Vegas Country Club will always remain here in the heart of the city,” she says. “There’s a law that says it will be here in perpetuity.” Information on golf, social, tennis, corporate and national memberships is available by request, 3000 Joe W.
