The 18-hole Tom Fazio golf course, which will use reclaimed water, is expected to open next spring, and construction will begin on a 110,000-sq. ft. clubhouse this winter that is expected to be complete in 2.5 years. Only homeowners in the 253-lot community will be able to join the club.
In the rugged desert near the Red Rock National Conservation Area in Las Vegas, The Summit Club, a private golf course community and 18-hole Tom Fazio golf course are taking shape, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
Fazio, now in his 70s, comes to check on the course’s progress every week, said Kenneth Crews, vice president of development for the project that is a partnership between Discovery Land and The Howard Hughes Corp. The course, which will use reclaimed water, is expected to open next spring, the Review-Journal reported.
The 550-acre-project will have 253 homes. Steve Adelson, a Discovery Land partner, said The Summit has sold nearly 70 custom home lots, with the majority being purchased by Las Vegans, accounting for about $250 million in sales, the Review-Journal reported.
Construction will begin on a 110,000-sq. ft. clubhouse this winter and will be completed in 2.5 years. Only homeowners can join the club, for which membership will cost a one-time $150,000 buy-in fee and cap out in the mid-$30,000s, the Review-Journal reported.
The golf course will be private and will not be open to events or nonresidents. Adelson said it will host a few charity events each year, the Review-Journal reported.
Last week, his team was preparing for a small party of buyers to gather at a temporary comfort station—an Airstream trailer stocked with refreshments—to see the progress and get to know each other. Discovery Land communities are famous for its comfort stations on its golf courses where players can get desserts, gourmet food, drinks and healthy dishes. There are even themed events like “Fear Factor” that put a twist on the game, the Review-Journal reported.
“We make golf fun for everyone in the family,” Adelson said.
Another selling point is the community’s high-tech security system. A residential service program will perform background checks on all of the homeowners’ vendors. It will also provide services, such as laundry, baby-sitting and bill management, the Review-Journal reported.
The development gets its name and architecture design from the Rat Pack days. The club will feature midcentury modern architecture and white-glove service, fun golf, recreational activities, kid’s program, restaurants and a wellness spa, the Review-Journal reported.
