Lake Las Vegas

The Falls Golf Club, which opened in October, is noted fo its striking scenery, challenging mix of water features and varied terrain. With the addition of The Falls Golf Club to its current lineup of Reflection Bay and SouthShore Golf Clubs, the tradition of legendary golf continues at Lake Las Vegas Resort.
     

The Falls Golf Club

The newest course at Lake Las Vegas Resort is The Falls Golf Club, designed by renowned course architect Tom Weiskopf. The first course in Southern Nevada designed by the PGA great, the 7,250-yard, par-72 course challenges golfers with terrain that varies from the mountainous landscape surrounding Lake Las Vegas Resort to the desert floor, creating dramatic elevation changes throughout the course. The front nine meanders through the desert floor with play through natural arroyos and canyons, while the back nine plays through mountainous terrain with elevation changes of over 300 feet. The par-5 12th hole affords a wonderful view of Lake Las Vegas Resort and the Las Vegas Strip just 17 miles to the west. Throughout the course, the use of water is a prominent theme creating breathtaking views for resort guests and challenging hazards for course players. The course provides players with the opportunity to appreciate the spectacular views of Lake Las Vegas, the surrounding mountains and the Las Vegas Strip in a unique, dramatic and natural setting. This delightful course features six holes with water including three picturesque waterfalls measuring up to 150 feet.

Created to emulate an old winery, the 18,000 square-foot Tuscan-style clubhouse, adorned with a 60-foot-tall bell tower, is perched on the hilltop behind the ninth and 18th greens and is home to The 19th Hole Restaurant and Grill.

SouthShore Golf Club

SouthShore Golf Club, the first private Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course in Nevada, provides its members a one-of-a-kind golf experience. Rising from the shoreline of Lake Las Vegas to the desert hills, the 6,917-yard course draws upon the area's unique topography with a design that carves out a dramatic layout with elevations ranging from 1,410 feet to 1,750 feet. The par-71 course has generous fairways, up to five tee settings per hole and offers strategic bunkering and forced carries over canyons and water, creating a unique experience for golfers with varying degrees of expertise. The course has a full calendar of social events and activities with a 28,000-square-foot clubhouse serving as the perfect setting. The club also features a full-service pro-shop, a cart and bag storage area and a snack bar. With the purchase of a membership to SouthShore Golf Club, members will also receive a membership to the SouthShore Yacht and Beach Club.

Golf Digest named SouthShore Golf Club as one of the country's "Top Ten New Private Courses" and the course was named one of "America's Best Modern Courses" by both Golf & Travel and Golfweek.


Reflection Bay Golf Club

Reflection Bay Golf Club is the first resort golf course in Nevada designed by Nicklaus. The 7,261-yard, par-72 Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course features lush emerald greens set against the quiet beauty of Lake Las Vegas, framing many of the course highlights. The course begins with a cascading stream, and waterfalls beckoning golfers to the first tee where the subtle stream opens up into Lake Las Vegas. The majesty of the front nine continues with early holes, which follow existing canyons and the natural topography of the desert landscape. Near the midway point, golfers reach a dramatic crescendo before descending down the back nine along the shores of Lake Las Vegas. Five of the course's signature holes stretch along a mile-and-a-half of pristine shoreline, including the eighth and 17th holes which bring the lake into play with challenging layouts jetting out onto peninsulas.

Former host to the annual Wendy's Three Tour Challenge, the course has received praise and accolades from some of the foremost golf publications in the nation including Golf Magazine, which named the course one of the "Top Ten New Courses You Can Play," and Golf Digest, who named the course to its "Top 100 Courses You Can Play" and "Top 50 Great Condition Courses in North America." Golf for Women named the course to its "50 Best Courses for Women" list. Travel & Leisure named Reflection Bay one of the "Top Ten Desert Courses in America."


Reflection Bay is home to the Jim Flick Golf schools and the elegant 32,000-square-foot Reflection Bay Clubhouse, which is home to the resort's signature lakeside restaurant, MiraLago, as well as a pro shop, lounge areas, locker rooms and an outdoor snack bar.

Rainbow Canyon Golf Club

The resort's fourth signature course, the Tom Fazio-designed Rainbow Canyon Golf Club, is currently in the planning stages. Winding through the natural desert terrain from the northern shore of Lake Las Vegas Resort to nearby Rainbow Gardens Geological Preserve, Rainbow Canyon will capitalize on Fazio's premise that "golf courses should reflect the natural beauty of their environments." Taking advantage of the desert canyon setting against the backdrop of Nevada's largest privately owned lake, the course will offer a unique golfing experience placing golfers in remote, isolated canyons, belying the fact that just 17 miles away is the famed Las Vegas Strip.
