MacDonald Highlands

MacDonald Highlands is a 1,320-acre guard-gated community tucked in the foothills of Henderson, Nevada, one of the most peaceful and exclusive areas in the Las Vegas Valley. Homesites at MacDonald Highlands are intended to become one with the surrounding natural beauty—with lot sizes ranging from .07 to 5.65 acres. Select estates are built on multiple lots, terraced up the mountainside, overlooking the valley below and the sparkling lights of the Las Vegas Strip in the distance. With a current property count of 905, construction at MacDonald Highlands is ongoing. According to the community’s governing documents, the total number of properties at build-out will be roughly 2,000. Residents of MacDonald Highlands enjoy endless outdoor activities, with three large neighborhood parks and miles of walking trails. The crowning glory of this community is DragonRidge Country Club, a challenging and private 18-hole golf course. Designed by Jay Morrish and David Druzisky, this course was recognized by the Las Vegas Review-Journal in 2018 as the #1 Golf Course in Southern Nevada. DragonRidge is proud to have one of the finest golf instructors in the country, Mike Davis, on site to teach members and guests of all ages. For equipment and apparel needs, the golf pro shop is fully stocked. Incredible views of the surrounding mountains and the Las Vegas Strip can be seen from the golf course, making for a one-of-a-kind experience. At the DragonRidge Clubhouse, members can enjoy over 40,000 square feet of amenities. Renovated in 2017, the Clubhouse features two lively restaurants with seasonal menus: Montrose Steakhouse, a fine dining restaurant that overlooks the pool and has space for 80 guests, and The Dragon Grille, which offers casual fare indoors and on the patio. Members love meeting up for happy hour at The Onyx Bar, which offers seasonal hors d’oeuvres and craft cocktails. Nearby, the Tennis and Athletic Center features a beautiful swimming pool with cabanas, five championship tennis courts, beach volleyball, basketball, pickleball, and a full-service fitness center with over 4,500 square feet of strength and cardio equipment. Life in MacDonald Highlands is undeniably beautiful.
