SouthShore Country Club

Desert mountains accented by the deep blue water of a private 320-acre lake and the emerald green fairways of a championship Jack Nicklaus golf course form the tapestry that is Lake Las Vegas, a multi-billion dollar resort and living community located about 25 minutes from the glittering lights of the Las Vegas Strip.

There aren’t views like this anywhere else in Southern Nevada. Or the southwest United States, for that matter. The Lake Las Vegas lifestyle is the ultimate expression of paradise found. SouthShore Country Club is synonymous with providing people with abundant lifestyle opportunities. Whether it’s golf, boating, swimming, hiking, bicycling, or just relaxing, there’s no better place. SouthShore Country Club is simply a marvelous living environment; growing better each day.

The current ownership group purchased the club in late 2017 and consists entirely of SouthShore members and Lake Las Vegas homeowners. Their mission is to increase the prestige of Lake Las Vegas as a whole and make SouthShore Country Club one of the best private clubs in the Southwest. “There were several reasons we bought the course,” says Ted Lachowicz, President and representative of the ownership group. “Number one, we want to ensure it remains a private and exclusive club. Number two, we want to protect and promote real estate values in all of Lake Las Vegas. And number three; we want to improve all facilities and the overall SouthShore experience. SouthShore’s golf course is the first private Jack Nicklaus Signature Course in Nevada, an inspiration that reaches the tops of ridges before falling away down rugged canyons to the sparkling lake below. Rising from the shoreline of Nevada’s largest privately owned lake to the desert hills, the 6,925-yard championship course draws upon the area’s unique topography to provide a one-of-akindgolfing experience.

For his first Nevada signature golf course, Nicklaus carved out a dramatic layout creating a course with elevations ranging from1,410 to 1,750 feet. For golfers of varying degrees of expertise, thepar-71 masterpiece has generous fairways, up to five tee boxes per hole and offers strategic bunkering and forced carries over canyons and water. With its dramatic elevation changes, superb conditioningand nuanced greens, the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course ignitesa golfer’s passion and provides a peaceful escape. 

SouthShore Country Club offers a wide variety of memberships designed for the multitude of interests that the membership reflects. Whether you play golf, tennis, swim or enjoy dining amongst friends and other members, there is a membership that will enhance your lifestyle. The 28,000 square foot Mediterranean-style golf clubhouse contains a restaurant, full-service bar, and a grand event room. The dining room offers breathtaking views of Lake Mead National Park with its majestic mountain backdrop.

Membership in the Lake Las Vegas Sports Club and the renovated Lake Club are part of SouthShore membership options, as well as access to Reflection Bay, the other Nicklaus design at Lake Las Vegas. The Lake Club provides members with access to fitness and swimming facilities, social activities and a beach on Lake Las Vegas. The newly renovated 18,000 square foot clubhouse features a heated pool, tennis courts, kayaks & paddleboards, and a brand new Wellness Bistro that serves coffee, smoothies and healthy snacks. Within is a fitness center housing the latest cardio and strength equipment, outside boasts a beautiful swimming pool complete with a private lakeshore white sand beach.

“We are very excited about the future and enhancements that the ownership group has planned and committed to,” SouthShore Country Club General Manager and Chief Operating Officer Joseph Travaglio, CCM enthusiastically expresses. “In the past year, we have improved many areas of the club that include a recent strategic agronomic plan that was put in practice that will elevate our highly ranked golf course to the next level. We also introduced a new culinary plan with state of the art equipment and through blind taste testing provide the best quality products on the market that has led to sold out dining rooms.

This will change as soon as we renovate the main clubhouse in 2019/2020 to provide ample space for dining and pub goers. SouthShore and Lake Las Vegas are on an upward path that I am proud to be a part of.”

SouthShore Country Club is in its final stages of their strategic plan to include a major facilities renovation and a complete social calendar. Two recent improvements include a complete renovation of the Lake Club and the addition of the new Big Horn Lounge.
