Reflection Bay at Lake Las VegasThis marvelous course is host to the Wendy's Three-Tour Challenge for the Dave Thomas for the adoption of children, set along the gorgeous Lake Las Vegas, the course is a 7261 yard par 72 with natural contours and five holes following the lake's shoreline. With decisive bunkering layouts, magnificent waterfalls, and emerald green manicured greens, this course is majestic to say the least. The 199 par 3 number 8 is very remarkable. Designed by golfing great Jack Nicklaus and opened in 1998, the excitement immediately hits you upon arrival and you can see the very immaculate course. Rental clubs are available and golf cart fees are included in the green fees.

This resort could very well turn into the most incredible in the west, with over $4 billion invested and the 320 acre man make lake touting 10 miles of shoreline adds even more prestige to the vista. With most of the upper end homes being built on the south end of the lake, the north end was developed to be an amenity for the homeowners and resort guests. Nestled in a valley with beautiful hills all around, the black and gray colors of the mountainous rocks are interweaved with the greens, blues of the 100 foot deep lake and desert hues making this an unbelievable oasis in the middle of the Nevada desert. The 32,000 foot clubhouse includes a pro shop, Le Chandelle gourmet restaurant, beach by the lake, snack bar and lounge. With 5 tee settings, craggy arroyos, rolling hills and deep valleys, this course is a marvel to play and view.

The landscape allows for such a variety of Nicklaus' favorite course alterations that it is a creation of magnificence. He protects the greens with well placed bunkers, forcing you to play well with your irons, and then develops downhill holes with more sand bunkers in front making you have to clear them or get into trouble. There is a downhill fairway par 5 where the green has been lifted enough to make sure that you do a soft landing in 2 or face the music. Along the waters edge, he has incorporated it to ensure that you don't slam your ball, but rather plan your plays. Jack is a master at this kind of play and has developed this course to do likewise.

The first nine goes through an arroyo with red cliffs looming as a troublesome backdrop. On the par 5, 596 yard number 3, you view the thousands of acres of managed land while the downhill hole dares you to give it a good slamming, but the steepness could fool you into getting too close to the bunkers and cause some concern about landing onto the green in two. Just the opposite on the par 5, number 5, where you see the sharp drop on the right of the green, a big hill to the left and bigger cliffs behind. And although the green is lifted somewhat, the water, palm tree and pools of water can overwhelm you with beauty that you could lose sight of the target. On the 7th, 8th and 9th he has placed them along the lake's shoreline, some jutting out into the water with bunkers placed strategically so the play becomes very exciting. With 5 holes altogether along this vein, it makes for a very interesting day of golf. The par 5 number 18 is a dogleg right with bunkers in the middle of the fairway and then splits the fairway where the right side heads to the lake and obvious troubles and the left has the lake lapping at the green. What to do? You play it out and see what happens. A fantastic day at Reflection Bay with more to come. In September, Tom Weiskopf has developed a course called the Falls that will be out front of the entire complex to greet newcomers and oldtimers to the best in golf, luxuries and amenities.
