MGM cuts ties with Walters Golf

Bali Hai Golf Club

MGM cuts ties with Walter’s Golf as Walter’s Golf looking to sell Bali Hai to Sands

Developers for a proposed NFL stadium in Las Vegas have narrowed down their top picks for a location to four, but one is a leading contender.

Las Vegas Sands Corporation and Majestic Realty Co., the lead developers on the project, said the Bali Hai Golf Club is the top pick.

“The Bali Hai sight, we think is the top location right now, because of its proximity to Interstate 15, Interstate 215, and its access to side streets and feasibility to the stadium area,” said Andy Abboud, of Sands Corporation.

The Bali Hai Golf Club is approximately 140 acres. Abboud said it is right amount of space for a domed stadium with 65 thousand seats and the parking to compliment it.

FOX5 Vegas spoke with football fans on the possibility of bringing a NFL stadium to the city and the possibility of the Raiders calling it home.

“I have a lot of friends in Chicago who are Raiders fans and they would absolutely love it. It’s cheaper to get to Las Vegas than it is to San Francisco or Oakland,” said Don Nole, who is visiting from Chicago.

“The Raiders work in Oakland. Play in Oakland and it’s not a very nice place to play and this would be quite a bit warmer if it was a domed stadium. It would be really nice for them,” said Scott Huffmaster, who is visiting from Sacramento.

Abboud said one perk for locals is that they will not be paying for the stadium.

“It will be paid for by our room tax which is a very strong contributor to the tax base and our economy here, so with a very small increase in the room tax paid for by tourists and the rest is being paid for by Sheldon Adelson and other investors,” said Abboud.

The Sands Corporation said it is also working with McCarran International Airport to avoid any issues with air traffic.

An oversight committee is expected to the review the site at the next meeting scheduled for Aug, 25.
