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
Established in and around the House Resort and accompanying golf course that belonged to Robert House before the war, Camp Golf was the frontlines of the NCR's fight against Caesar's Legion during the First Battle of Hoover Dam in 2277. However, as its strategic value waned and it found itself miles behind the frontline, it became a dump of sorts for the NCR Army. Underperforming soldiers are sent to Camp Golf to be shaped up by its drill sergeants.
The matter is different for NCR Rangers. The actual resort building has been adopted as their regional headquarters, doubling as a communications and quartermastery hub. This causes some tension between Rangers and troopers, the latter having to camp in military tents on former golf fields, while the former enjoy all the luxuries a pre-War resort can provide.
The NCR have a heavy presence here as they are guarding a giant water pipe that stretches off to the north, to water the Sharecropper Farms plants and keep the NCR’s belly full.
The camp consists of several 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.
