Reflection Bay.jpg

*The luxury resort mecca at Lake Las Vegas in Henderson, Nev.____, 20 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, has closed two its three golf courses--The Falls Golf Club and Reflection Bay Golf Club; the private South Shore Golf Club ____remains open.

The Lake Las Vegas development filed for bankruptcy protection last year, with over $800 million in debt.

I went to the Reflection Bay website. Here's what they said under the link to "Golf":

*The Reflection Bay Golf Course at Lake Las Vegas **(pictured above) **is not open to the public for golf play or for casual dining, as it is in the process of being transferred to its secured lender. Until future notice, we suggest residents and guests consider the Tuscany Golf Course in Henderson or contact the concierge desks at The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Las Vegas, Loews Lake Las Vegas, and MonteLago Village Resort for assistance in making alternative golf course arrangements.

As golf gets more accessible and inexpensive in the wake of the recession, unfortunately, in some cases, it will also go away.*
