It seems the large flocks of birds are eating up the grass and the greens re not well maintained. For non locals it NJ is not good value. They dont have a range and the cart was bad. Had to change it out. The course is poorly marked no map on the scorecard.
Staff is friendly and some good views

He would not play this course again.

Jack "Frigging" Nicklaus' Signature Design return to play in 2014 and the last four years have been heaven sent to the team at the course to get it in this condition after being closed for so many years.

Not all amenities are available yet but there is a nice restaurant/bar, fully stocked pro shop with kind and knowledgeable professionals, and excellent cart staff. The practice areas are limited to a putting green and cage driving range.

The course is absolutely wonderful. Adjacent to Lake Las Vegas and and the Westin Resort, the views of the local mountains, the water, homes, hotels, and attractions are beautiful.

The course has many of Jack's must have's: forced carries, big bunkers, left or right, etc. I loved this course. Absolutely loved it.

I rank it top 5 in Vegas golf, excluding the hard to play like Shadow Creek, Cascata, and Wynn.

Worth it!

I enjoyed this course more than Wolf Creek, Bali Hai, and Coyote Springs. The teeboxes were flat and pure and most of them were raised giving you clear views of the surroundings and pin. They do not have water on the course but give you a couple bottles in your cart. It is a bit overpriced but will definitely play here again.

This is another one of those courses that deserves four 1/2 stars.
It's now probably one of my top five favorite courses if I'm dragging sticks to Las Vegas.
If you didn't already know, Lake Las Vegas was supposed to be the next hot destination in the desert until the recession derailed those plans. The 36-hole Reflection Bay shrank to 18 holes, leaving only the Jack Nicklaus course that hosted the Wendy's Three-Tour Challenge from 1998-2000, 2003-04 and 2006. I'm glad it survived.
There were only a couple of tee shots that left us confused on where to hit it. Otherwise, it's a good test of golf with beautiful views once you reach the climax of each nine, where the final holes wrap around the lake.
Big TVs in the bar of the massive clubhouse are good for hanging out and watching the game. It's well worth the drive from the Strip.
