Golf Course Review Reflection Bay Golf Club Henderson Nevada
Reviewed by: Alex326, Monterey, Ca
After taking a rest day yesterday I was itching to get out and play today. Mpisarski01 coordinated with Kevbig to get us an early tee time at Reflection Bay. I showed up in my best Tiger Woods impersonation outfit but Kevbig came prepared and was rocking some cool golf themed socks that were a tribute to Jack Nicklaus who I believed designed the course. Well played Kevin!
The course layout is great with a number of the holes being right on the water of Lake Las Vegas. The course also has a number of elevation changes throughout the journey to add to the fun factor.
If I remember right only the 1st and 10th holes parallel each other. All others are either separated by rock inlets or the natural terrain of the hillside. Thankfully Kevbig was with us to give us the inside knowledge of the course as there are a lot of doglegs and strategic layup shots mixed in with the grip it and rip it holes.
To me the greens were rolling a tad bit on the slow side, but this might of just been because the last two courses I played on had fast and lightning fast greens. Greens at Reflection Bay rolled smooth and easily held well struck approach shots. There were a number of pitch marks in the greens but most had been repaired properly so they didn’t effect putts.
Tee boxes, fairways, and sand traps were all in nice shape (above average). Customer service was excellent with the cart gal coming around several times throughout the round.
Pro shop has a nice selection of soft goods. There is a bar/restaurant that overlooks the 18th hole and the lake.
Even though I had 8 penalty strokes on the front 9 alone (0 on the back) the course was a blast to play.
