New Developments at Lake Las Vegas

By Art Nadler

Don’t let the tranquil setting fool you. Over the last few years, there’s been a lot going on out at Lake Las Vegas.

For starters, the old Falls golf course clubhouse just off Lake Mead Boulevard and Lake Las Vegas Parkway was reopened in January as the Lake Las Vegas Sports Club. An exclusive membership club for Lake Las Vegas residents, it offers all the workout equipment a typical sports facility would have plus outside tennis courts, pickleball courts, a 25-meter lap pool, resort-sized swimming pool, spa and steam room, yoga studio and various instructor-led exercises classes.

The sports club also has designated a room to UNLV for its Sports Science Center where the university can conduct physiology and kinesiology studies. Students and professionals are using the center for education, research and various guest presentations.

Cody Winterton, executive vice president of Raintree Investment Corp., which owns the sports club, said the newly remodeled facility has become a hit among Lake Las Vegas residents not only for workouts but for various social events.

“We had a pickleball event here recently and 180 people showed up to watch,” Winterton said. “We have a kids’ game room that is popular and various clubs book rooms here for their events.”

Reflection Bay Golf Club underwent a $5 million renovation of all the holes and the clubhouse, Winterton said. It is a signature Jack Nicklaus designed course, and the golf legend himself walked each hole to supervise the renovation. In 2015 the course was named one of the Top 100 Resort Golf Courses in the United States by Golf Digest and No. 4 in Nevada by Golf Week.
