LAKE LAS VEGAS, Nev., Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Reflection Bay Golf Club at Lake Las Vegas will reopen in October 2014 after a complete restoration guided by Jack Nicklaus himself. The Golf Digest Top 100 course stood for more than a decade as a premier golf destination for weekend golfers and tour champions alike.
The first public Jack Nicklaus Signature Course in Nevada is poised to rise again as a true oasis in the heart of the Las Vegas desert. Majestic red rock mountain vistas surround the course, while each hole offers stunning views of a 320-acre lake, the focal point of Lake Las Vegas.
Reflection Bay is now under the ownership of Paulson & Co., which purchased the course — and nearly 1,000 additional acres of Lake Las Vegas land. The company's first order of business was rejuvenating Reflection Bay, the 7,184-yard, par-72 course. Century Golf Partners has taken the lead in the restoration.
"The revitalization of Reflection Bay is a significant step in the recovery of Lake Las Vegas as the luxury new home and resort destination in Henderson," said Patrick Parker, division president for Raintree Investment Corp., exclusive agent for Paulson & Co. "This fall, we are celebrating the restoration of Reflection Bay and the opening of the new road to Lake Las Vegas, Galleria Parkway."
Reflection Bay was personally designed by 18-time Major winner Jack Nicklaus and was home to the Wendy's 3Tour Challenge from 1998 to 2007. Each of Reflection Bay's imaginative holes was crafted to be distinctive and memorable, including five holes stretching along a mile and a half of shoreline and the 200-yard, par-3 eighth, which showcases a peninsula jutting out into Lake Las Vegas.
"This course was arguably the most beautiful in Vegas and will be again," said Jeff Levine, senior vice president of Century Golf Partners." The course is already green, a welcome sight to residents. We're on track to start booking tee times for as early as October 2014."
Located just 20 minutes from the Strip, Reflection Bay Golf Club is returning as a luxurious escape. The lavish 32,000-square-foot clubhouse will feature a full golf shop, as well as casual and fine dining. The club will also offer relaxation on a private white sand beach, paddle boarding, and access to the La Contessa yacht. On select nights, concerts will be held, turning Reflection Bay into a beachside venue like no other. The renovated facilities will be ideal for events, tournaments, and weddings.
"We expect new and returning golfers will once again fall in love with playing Reflection Bay," said Parker.

Business and IT leaders today need better application delivery capabilities to support critical new innovation. But how often do you hear objections to improving application delivery like, “I can harden it against attack, but not on this timeline”; “I can make it better, but it will cost more”; “I can deliver faster, but not with these specs”; or “I can stay strong on cost control, but quality will suffer”? In the new application economy, these tradeoffs are no longer acceptable. Customers will ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness,...

Data-intensive companies that strive to gain insights from data using Big Data analytics tools can gain tremendous competitive advantage by deploying data-centric storage. Organizations generate large volumes of data, the vast majority of which is unstructured. As the volume and velocity of this unstructured data increases, the costs, risks and usability challenges associated with managing the unstructured data (regardless of file type, size or device) increases simultaneously, including end-to-...

Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, includin...

Operational Hadoop and the Lambda Architecture for Streaming Data Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing...

When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon...
