A bunch of old, worn out clubs

I'm always looking for a playing partner of similar ability to play with. No betting, or anything, just good-natured competition for the love of the game.

I played with the gk gurus on a Thursday; teeing off at about 8:30. The weather was near-perfect, with only a small amount of wind. Course conditions were good , considering the brutal heat the desert experienced this year. Tees were good, fairways had mostly good coverage, and the bunkers had really good sand (they put rakes in the carts to allow players to clean up their mess, too).
The greens were slow, but tricky, probably because the players in our group haven't played on Bermuda greens too often. I really like the layout here. The course is not easy, but very playable from the white tees. Lots of water in play off the tee. This course would be very tough from the back tees on a windy afternoon.
Thanks to Johnny for setting it up. I had a great time!» Close

I made the trek from the upscale surroundings of Lake Las Vegas to the friendly confines of Laughlin. It was a real treat to play with Alex, Johnny, and Ron. Three of the nicest fellows with whom you'd ever want to play a round.
The layout of Mojave resort is very fun. Not too difficult, but there are enough demading shots to make you think. The tee boxes were under reconstruction, so some tees were unavailable. The fairways were in good summer shape. The rough was ridiculously long in places (not sure why). Bunkers were not well maintained, but Covid is much to blame for that. The greens had fine coverage, but were as slow as any I have played in recent memory.
I also want to address the rumor that two members of our group got their carts stuck in some soft sand ... but, I won't. All in all, another great day playing golf with a bunch of golf buddies I met through gk. Thanks, Johnny!» Close

This was my first time to Reflection Bay and I was very impressed with every aspect of the experience. From check in through the after-round lunch, the facility was top notch.
The location of the course is beautiful. It is surrounded by Lake Las Vegas, which is much larger than I thought it would be. There was a lot of recreational activity going on in the lake, and it was fun to watch people goofing off while I hacked away.
The course was a lot of fun. The tee shots weren't too tight, but there were lots of water type penalty areas scattered around to keep you honest. The fairways were very nice, with plenty of coverage. The rough was a fair length; playable, but long enough to affect shots. The sand was Covid impacted, but I have no problem with moving my ball to a representative spot in the sand. The greens were very nice for summer, and that's the most important element, to me.
Many thanks to Johnny for setting up another great outing. Reflection Bay is one of many courses I probably would never have played without his tireless efforts.» Close
