Las Vegas area golf without the neon lights

Since last January, the Hyatt Regency Lake Las Vegas Resort has become an interesting links alternative to bustling Las Vegas.

Located just 17 miles from Las Vegas, but in its own world, the lakefront resort features Reflection Bay Golf Club, Jack Nicklaus’s first Nevada layout.

The complete story

“The Hyatt Regency Lake Las Vegas Resort, with its peaceful, majestic surroundings, provides a luxurious, relaxing alternative to the bright lights and bustle of the Strip,” says Victor Lopez, divisional vice president of resorts for Hyatt Hotels International.

Complementing the desert lakeside location are the rolling hillsides that the resort embraces. The Mediterranean-inspired property features almost 500 rooms with views of the lake or mountains, as well as 47 suites, and two- or three-bedroom ‘casitas’ with their own entrances.

The championship golf course is set along the tranquil shores of 320-acre Lake Las Vegas. The combination of water, desert, and mountain landscapes, combined with the genius of Nicklaus golf course architecture, makes this a must-play for resort guests and even those staying in nearby Las Vegas. Additional enticements include the Nicklaus/Flick Golf School, an elegant clubhouse, a gourmet restaurant, and a huge practice facility.

Back at the resort, other amenities include an upscale spa and fitness center, two spacious swimming pools, many watersports on Lake Las Vegas, a variety of dining options, a European-style casino, popular meeting space, and much more. It all adds up to a completely unique Las Vegas-area golf vacation destination.
