Absolutely Gorgeous!

I had no idea what to expect when I booked a round for me and one of my customers at Reflections Bay. I was very pleasantly surprised. I love desert courses with water on them (for the scenery) and this one had a ton. It was both challenging and spectacular to look at.

Slowest round ever

First the staff was very friendly which seems to be the case at the course around LasVegas. When we checked in we were told they were real busy. With 10 minutes between tee times this did seem bad. By hole number two we were group three waiting to tee off on each hole. The round took 6:20 to play which is the longest round I have ever played. To make matters worse the cart girl must go home at 3 or 4 because we never saw her after hole 4. It was over 100 degrees so taking 5:20 to play with no cart service was not pleasant. I will not play here again.

On the bright side I scored below my handicap and the course was in decent shape except for the greens being really slow.

Practice facility & staff

For the price, would NOT recommend. There is a warm up area that provides no real feedback on what’s happening with your ball flight. Staff seemed annoyed they needed to bring a cart down for me…Overheard their sarcasm on the walkie-talkie and felt like me golfing was a burden.

Stay out of the sand traps

The consistency of the sand in the traps is sort of a paste.; consequently, it is very difficult to get under the ball. I know that in desert courses it is difficult to keep sand in the traps because the wind blows the sand out. I assume the grounds keepers put something in the sand to keep it from blowing out. The result is the sand is sort of a thick paste mixture which doesn’t have much give. Except for the sand traps the course is interesting, challenging and entertaining. Will play it again, but just have to avoid the traps.

Disappointed

It was my first time there and a very disappointing experience. A friend of mine booked a time for ten players and two people to ride. We showed up on time with two local players out of the ten who lived in Las Vegas. The cashier would not give our two local players the resident rate. I asked why and he said they are not giving the resident rate during march madness weekend. So I asked for a supervisor, and he told me no exceptions. You should have read all the terms and conditions on the golf contract, so I asked could he make an expectation since the other eight players are paying 185.00 each and two players 25.00 each, which is over $1,450.00 of business, not including potential food and drinks purchases from the cart girl The resident two players would have paid 90.00, but the supervisor said no, so I asked for the manager. He said we couldn't have any expectations either, even though there is no communication on the website or the golf after-hours voicemail system about this march madness weekend policy.
The course had green paint in the fairways on several holes and some spots on the greens. The charger in the cart didn't even work. Based on this first experience and poor customer service, I would not recommend the course to anyone.

A must play in Vegas

Very interesting lay-out with plenty of water which is not expected for a desert course. Really recommended.

Did not overseed

Got to course only to find out fairways and rough not overseeded. Not worth $160 to play on dormant Bermuda. Need to disclose this type of major condition fault. Heck, they usually will disclose aeration of course.

Sadly disappointed

Previously played Reflection Bay a few years ago when visiting and was very impressed so we decided to go back on this trip. The course condition has fallen off immensely. Fairways were in rough shape but decent enough. Greens were absolutely awful. Patches of turf have been recently replaced on several greens and it felt almost pointless trying to putt at times. Outside of the greens, several bunkers are in need of sand. Very sad to see such a nice course design be let down by poor conditions

Conditions were brutal

First off I need to say that I have played this course multiple times since it opened but this week regardless of the weather the course was in the worst condition I’ve ever seen. Although the greens were reasonably smooth and somewhat fast there’s a lack of grass in a number of areas on them. The bunkers were totally inconsistent and had not been wrecked by the maintenance staff. There’s bird scat all over four of the greens which I understand but that can be cleaned off periodically at least. The fairways were not in good shape and of course this time of year I would expect dormant grass off of the main fairways but it’s bad in most spots. Very disappointed and hopefully they can adjust with the right feedback. I did supply an online survey to them as well

Maybe it’s nice in the spring?

We had the misfortune of having a tee time here on one of the windiest days in recent memory. Granted, not the course’s fault. But nothing about the course was redeeming or made us want to power through. Fairways were spotty and/or half-dormant. The greens were very patchy and cratered with unrepaired ball marks. The fringes were in very rough shape. Many of the bunkers needed more sand. Pity, because the pictures make it seem beautiful. Maybe it is in the spring when the rough isn’t dormant. But right now, this is a $40 course AT BEST.
