Reflection Bay primed to bounce back to the upper elite after great overseed
Reflection Bay, the previously untouchable Jack Nicklaus signature design at Lake Las Vegas, took a few lumps last year. Golfers still left satisfied this summer, but not quite as wowed as the reputation would suggest. One bold golf writer even dared to offer that the newage Vegas legend might not be worth the $200 plus greens fees, risking condemnation (hint, he writes a mean blog).
But now, it appears the Bay is primed to bounce back better than ever. Reflection Bay just completed a great overseed and people in the Vegas golf industry believe it may be as pristine now as it was in its first few years of operation. If that’s the case, it could once again challenge as the best course in the Vegas area.
“They got hammered a little last year,” said one Vegas golf insider. “Everyone thought they would come back that much stronger and it looks like they have.”
It turns out you may not be able to keep a young legend down. For the complete look at the Reflection Bay of fall 2005/winter 2006 stay tuned to LasVegasGolf.com.
Comebacks are relative. Reflection Bay never had far to go even on its worst day. But if it’s back to its golf magazine cover collecting prime, Vegas golf is that much better.

You must have gone to a different course than all the other people that have given the course such high praise at Hardy Park. Please go back and take another look or better yet play a round if you play golf. Obviously you have made a mistake because with all the positive feedback from hundreds of golfers, journalists and spectators not all of them are wrong.You need to spend some real time with the deveopment of a golf course to really understand what you are talking about.
