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. The course has reversed the nines from the original layout and creates some debate on which routing provides the most dramatic finish. Back in the day Reflection Bay was the host of the Wendy’s 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.
