It was on the front line for a while. Only resort in New Vegas no one wanted to get sent to. Doesn't have that kind of importance anymore, though. They pulled most of the troops out of there after we took the Hoover Dam.
”— Craig Boone
Camp Golf, formerly a golf course and resort, is an NCR military base, located on the north shore of Lake Las Vegas and east of Grub n' Gulp Rest Stop.
Before the war, the area around the House Resort was a luxurious country club owned by Robert House. Abandoned in the wake of the Great War, the resort stood empty for nearly two centuries before it was claimed by the New California Republic Army as its frontline base. In 2277, it was one of the main battlegrounds with the Caesar's Legion during the First Battle of Hoover Dam.
Following the New California Republic's victory at the Dam, Camp Golf found itself deeper in NCR territory. No longer on the frontlines, the camp lost much of its importance and the Republic pulled most of its troops to other postings. Camp Golf became a posting for under-performing soldiers, where their NCOs try to put them into shape. The most infamous is the Misfits platoon, giving Sgt. McCredie a near-perpetual headache. It doesn't help that the soldiers usually end up emptying bottles of alcohol into their bellies, rather than magazines of bullets at training targets.
However, the base has another facet. The former House Resort building was claimed by the NCR Rangers as the central hub of their deployment in the Mojave. All Ranger stations are coordinated by Chief Hanlon from the terrace overlooking Lake Las Vegas, with the luxurious interior providing Rangers with a place to rest, recoup, and rearm between deployments. The troopers, assigned to cramped canvas tents on old golf fields outside, dislike this kind of stratification.
The camp consists of a tents on the golf course west of the resort building, near which the command tent, infirmary, mess hall and shooting range are located. The perimeter is secured by several watchtowers manned by sentries at all times.
South of the resort the main pipeline providing water to New Vegas exits into Lake Mead.
