In 1931 legislature made the decision to legalize gambling on the local level here in Las Vegas. When this declaration was made Las Vegas was placed in a position to latter be crowned the gambling capital of the world. 1931 was a big year for the great city, in the same year gambling was legalized; the Las Vegas Club and a few other casinos were built in what is now known as Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas. Besides being one of the most sought after vacation spot by people all over the world, Fremont Street was also the very first paved street in Las Vegas.
In 1938 Las Vegas had its very first golf course which is still standing today. Las Vegas Golf Clubs was built right by downtown Las Vegas, making it easily accessible by dam workers in the late 1930s and gives modern day tourists a short trip when visiting the exotic Freemont Street. When you visit the Las Vegas Golf Club you can quickly forget you are in the desert. The landscaping down at the golf course is lush greens, beautiful scenery with the gorgeous trees, and clean clear water hazards. Very recently the Las Vegas Golf Club was renovated with over $5 million giving it some of the best greens to putt on in the city.
