Black Mountain History
The 1950s was a time of rich history especially for golf in Southern Nevada. In 1952, Las Vegans saw the opening of the Desert Inn Country Club, (also known by the loving moniker “The DI”). The DI was home to countless Tour events and it hosted play from U.S. Presidents and Hollywood celebrities to Championship players.

Another 9 holes sporting a beautiful view of the foothills of the Black Mountains was added in 2002. Named the Desert Course, this challenging field entertained and tested golfers for years until 2013 when it was shut down.2017 the Black Mountain Golf Club went into bankruptcy eventually closing in 2018. In May of 2019, the Henderson City Council approved a closure plan.Less known than the DI, but loved none the same, golf at Black Mountain was an important part of the local community. Many of the residents surrounding the course have lived in the community for decades. The course was a hub for families and the surrounding neighborhood and continues to be loved by its residents.
What is next for the Black Mountain community can be a wonderful future where the next generation of families can live, grow, work and play. The neighborhood can continue to be a place where pride of homeownership thrives. We see a future where the history of Black Mountain and the future of Black Mountain can grow together, seamlessly to enhance the entire community for the next 60 years.
