This Las Vegas golf course jewel that is located in the billion-dollar, exclusive Lake Las Vegas Resort, was the first public resort Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course in Nevada, and completely lives up to the reputation of the architect.

Five holes at Reflection Bay grace the beautiful shoreline of the private Lake Las Vegas, highlighted by the par 3, 17th hole that plays to a near island green and the par 5, 18th hole that hugs the water down the entire right side of the hole. There are three water falls, beaches and many palm trees all combining to separate the Reflection Bay Golf Club experience.

One of the highlights of the Reflection Bay experience is the High Performance Golf Institute where former PGA Tour players Craig Barlow and Jeff Gallagher help golfers of every level improve. Brendan Bergin, a master club fitter, is also available as is an expansive practice facility.

Nicklaus etched this Las Vegas golf course out of the rugged desert, and came up with a true Oasis. It was an artistic endeavor for the Golden Bear, and he took special care in plotting each bunker, fairway and green. Since opening in 1998, the course has been awarded many different accolades including America’s Top 75 Golf Destinations by Golf Medalist by GOLF Magazine, America’s Top 100 golf communities by Travel and Leisure, best new upscale course by Golf Digest, and best overall experience by Vegas Golfer Magazine plus many others.

Golf packages are available at the Westin Lake Las Vegas, the resort that overlooks Reflection Bay. The Westin Lake Las Vegas is a perfect spot for a family vacation, a romantic getaway or a corporate event.

Reflection Bay Golf Club is a former host course of the Wendy’s 3-Tour Challenge and is now a home for several high-level charity tournaments and collegiate tournaments.


The official Nicklaus Design course description of Reflection Bay Golf Club reads: “Crafted along the northern shore of the lake, every contour of this imaginative course is a rare reflection of the mind of a master. Five holes stretch along a mile and a half of peaceful shoreline, with emerald greens embracing the hillside property. Measuring 7,184-yards, Jack has designed each of the par-72 golf course’s holes to be distinctive and memorable, including five holes stretching along a mile and a half of shoreline and the 200-yard, par-3 eighth which showcases a peninsula jutting out into Lake Las Vegas.”

In casual moments, Nicklaus has called the par 4, 455-yard 7th hole that plays into the lake (the first of the lake holes) his favorite because it was inspired by his experiences at the British Open. The hole requires a precise tee ball before a knock-down shot is played into the bunker-guarded green.
