Dean Martin statue marker reads:

The famous "Rat Pack" entertainer was a fixture at the Las Vegas Country Club in its early years. Even before the course officially opened on October 20, 1967, he [Dean Martin] was playing it nearly every day, often with local legends Bo Wininger, Myron Friedman, Don Cherry, Minnie Cardillo and Tony Frabbiele.

LVCC's first golf professional, Arthur Nightingale, called his favorite group The Gruesome Sixsome. "They were a lot of fun, but I should have used the word awesome, not gruesome. How often do you get a group like that?"

The Las Vegas Park Speedway racetrack previously occupied parts of the land.

Located at 3000 Joe W Brown Drive, Winchester, Nevada.
