What to Expect:  Reflection Bay is a high end public access golf course found south of Las Vegas in Henderson. Both Reflection Bay and neighboring course, The Falls, closed for a handful of years before Reflection Bay reopened in the fall of 2014. courses used to be ranked in Nevadaís Top 10 courses with Reflection Bay being found on Golf Digestís Top 100 Public Courses list. Reflection Bay was the host of the Wendyís 3 Tour Challenge (hosting 3-player teams from the PGA, LPGA, and Champions Tour) and featured some of the most stunning courses in Nevada. The course was also featured on the Tiger Woods video game and quickly became a favorite among gamers. The highlights of Reflection Bay are the holes found along Lake Las Vegas that provide both stunning beauty and significant challenge. The private SouthShore course found at Lake Las Vegas, also a Nicklaus design, remains open while Reflection Bay and The Falls are closed until financial woes can be overcome (if ever). If Reflection Bay does reopen and gets the course back into great shape, the design elements are there to bring the club back to prominence.
